How to Hire the Best Lawyer

Hiring the best lawyer is a challenge. To find the best lawyer in Hampton Roads you need to do your homework. Talk to friends and family, and look online to find the best lawyer for your case.

People often ask me "how do I find the best lawyer?" It's not an easy question to answer, and often the answer is "it depends…" The "best lawyer" for you will depend upon a number of factors. What is it that you are seeking in terms of legal services? The best lawyer for a divorce may not be the best lawyer for a criminal matter, and vice versa.

Often, the issue of the "best lawyer" for a particular matter will depend upon a client's ability to pay. Many top lawyers are incredibly expensive, so the "best lawyer" for your particular case may depend upon how much money you are willing to spend on legal services. That is not to say that the most expensive lawyers are always the best, far from it, but there is often a correlation between price and factors such as skill and experience.

The "best lawyer" for your particular situation may also come down to personality. You should hire a lawyer with whom you are comfortable. You will have far better results when you are able to engage in free and open dialogue with a lawyer who puts you at ease and inspires trust. For this reason, the "best lawyer" for one person may not be the best for someone else. All people are different, and certainly lawyers are no exception.

Often times, it is wise to consult with friends and colleagues when looking for the "best lawyer". For example, I do not know anything about plumbing, so when I had issues with a newly installed sink I spoke with friends and colleagues about reputable plumbers in the area before beginning my search. You might consider doing the same when trying to find the best lawyer.

Ultimately, the "best lawyer" for you is the attorney that you trust to do the job right. Look for experience, look for specialization, and look for results. And in your search, don't hesitate to contact us!
