1Client recommendation  for Todd E. Gaudin
From Gauchonboys6:
Disclaimer
During our adoption process "Todd" became a household name. He always went the extra mile to treat us as family, not just clients. I would describe him as quick witted, extremely acute to the fine details of the law, a whole hearted passionate advocate for children, and a simply charming family man. While our family was enduring this journey of adoption Todd made all the difference. We watched him gain the respect and affections of all parties involved in the court room with his genuine concern for the true meanings of laws to be applied for the sake of the children. What makes Todd so precious is the way he was there for our family helping us focus during this emotional time. His meetings, phone calls, emails, etc... Were always easy to understand and when needed heart felt and compassionate. Our story was a happy ending but I know that isn't always the case however, I can honestly say I wouldn't want any other lawyer standing by me. Thank you Todd you were an answer to our prayers.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
