The first and foremost point is to do the preliminary investigation of your case. Whether you need a lawyer or not, either you need an advocate who is specialized in criminal law or civil law? What is the subject matter of your case and always make a preliminary estimate of your expense?
Never believe what he is saying
When you are visiting a power of attorney never believe what he is saying. Advocates are specialized in tricking their client’s. They use to say such fact which will make you believe that your case is so easy to solve. They use to tell you that your case is the matter of one or two hearings and will finish just in a month. Never believe in these facts if they say so you should have to prepare yourself that your case is going to be so long.
Visit at least 3 Lawyers Before Hiring
While you are hiring a lawyer, please at least visit 3 of them so that you get the better idea what your case actually is and which one is better and more economical for you?
You do not need to ask him directly how much fee he will take. Be wise, and just concentrate what he is saying. Is he preparing your mind that your case is a difficult one but he can do it easily? You receive a lot of money due to him or it is a long going process and will have to pay to several people, and soon.
Qualify for your Problem
Another most important factor is that you will have to guess from his behavior that is he capable of solving your matter or is he just letting loose an arrow in the darkness.
Another factor that needs to keep in mind before hiring an advocate is to check his qualification. How many diplomas, degrees does he have? What is his specialization? And the most important one is that physical appearance is he confident or not. Is he at home in desire subject or not.
Individual or a Firm
My personal advice is that always choose an individual one and a lawyer who works not for any law firm or organization as he will concentrate more on your work than other lawyers.
While hiring a lawyer always checks his past records and experiences like how many cases he lost or win. How many times his client got the remedy for his injury and his experience with judges and clients?
While hiring a lawyer always check whether his clients satisfied with him or not, what are his behavior with them, and many more?
