There is a good reason in our western civilization why lawyers are sometimes termed "advocates."

It is particularly apt in the field of medical malpractice where someone must speak for individual rights in an arena where the language is often that of science, technology, and the complexities of professional or institutional practice.

The field is also a world where events, intentions, and personal actions are often drawn in shades of gray, not crisp black and white.

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?
