It is important to hire an attorney that is right for you, or else you will be out precious time and money and have to go through the process all over again. Hiring replacement counsel is extremely expensive, time consuming, and emotional—so finding the right attorney to start your case is extremely important.
You will want someone with knowledge, experience, and diligence to represent you throughout the process. It is also important to understand how you will be billed and what the retainer amount and hourly rates are for the individuals who will be working on your case. You want to make sure that you have an attorney who has the time to work on your case. You will want to hire someone who responds to you in a timely fashion, and who utilizes the time that he/she has with you to strengthen your case.
Ultimately, you may meet with multiple attorneys and decide (based on the above factors) which attorney is best for you.
