1. HAVING A CONSULTATION WITH ONLY ONE ATTORNEY.
You want to have a consultation with two or three. Many attorneys do not charge for the first consultation. You will be amazed at the different styles of attorneys.
2. ASSUMING THAT THE BEST ATTORNEY WILL HAVE THE LARGEST AD IN THE PHONE BOOK.
Having a large full-page ad in the phone book does not mean that the attorney is skilled. What it means is the attorney has to use expensive full-page ads to attract clients. Some attorneys do not even use phone book advertising. Many, including this office, use a modest ad and also rely on word of mouth from past satisfied clients and members of the community. When you see a huge full-page expensive phone book ad in the yellow pages, keep in mind that you as the client, are paying for that.
3. HIRING AN OUT-OF-TOWN ATTORNEY.
You usually want the law office close to your work or home. Not just for consultations. Drop off and pick up papers and other things. Faxes are not always adequate.
