Good Questions to Ask a Prospective Lawyer

Certain questions are good beginning points for interviewing a potential attorney as they can give you a broad sense of the attorney’s practice, and how he or she will work with you both during and after a case. Some questions you should consider asking in your first consultation with a lawyer include:

  • How many cases similar to mine have you taken on / won?
  • What fees do you charge?
  • Are your fees the same, win or lose?
  • What’s the best way to reach you during my case?
  • What do you expect of clients during a case?
  • If I have trouble collecting, will you help me after the case?

The answers you receive to even just these basic questions can help you choose an attorney who is the right fit for you early on.
