Frequently Asked Questions


How do I choose a law firm?

Answer: In choosing a law firm, there are many variables that can go into making a decision such as experience, firm prestige or positive referrals. However, one of the best ways to make the choice is through the consultation process. If the attorney seems distracted or disinterested during the consultation, chances are he or she will be distracted or disinterested through the other phases of your case and act accordingly. You want to choose a firm that has the experience to handle even the largest cases but small enough to treat yours with the time and diligence that it deserves.
