Guides and Tips to finding the Right Lawyer
When it comes to getting effective help for you legal problem, your lawyer plays a crucial role. Their knowledge of the law, negotiation skills, their ability to keep your legal matter moving at a good pace, and of course, communicate well with you are very important factors you need to find in your lawyer.
Knowledge of the law is a critical factor. We like lawyers that are highly valued in the legal community and have significant experience with internet law matters
A Clean Record
It goes without saying, but you want to make sure that your lawyer has never been subject to any disciplinary action by the Legal Services Commission in any state of Australia
Effective and Efficient
Sometimes law firms can place a huge case load requirement on their lawyers, this can often translate to your file not being handled as quickly as it needs to be, or worse, handled by a non-legally trained person
Respected by Colleagues & Clients
The practice of law is a lot about negotiation. Choosing a lawyer who has developed good relationships with other lawyers can prove to be advantageous in the efficiency of your legal matter.
Choosing a Lawyer Who Has Got Great Client Feedback
Although this is obvious, it can be information that can be difficult for you to ask for and difficult to get. Having an insight into what past or existing clients think of the lawyer you’re seeing can prove to be a game-changer.
Choosing a Lawyer Who Isn’t Too Busy
Sometimes the bigger the firm, the bigger number of files are saddled on the lawyer. If your legal matter is one of too many files that your lawyer is handling at one time, then the progress of your file may be delayed.
Choosing a Lawyer that has a Small Practice Focus
Lawyers that practice in many different areas of law may not necessarily have the up to date knowledge necessary to optimise the outcome of your legal matter. Always choose a specialist over a generalist.
Choosing a Lawyer you are Comfortable with
This might seem to be a no-brainer, but depending how long your legal matter will take, you may be spending a lot of time with your lawyer. So, you need to like them, trust them and have faith in their expertise and good judgement.
