Important Questions to Ask Before Choosing an Employment Attorney

  • Does the attorney only practice employment law? Of course, some attorneys are accomplished in various fields of law. However, it’s also true that many attorneys focus on one type of law and practice other types on the side. Sometimes, these attorneys are simply not the best fit for employment law matters where extensive knowledge of the various intricacies associated with this type of law is required to best represent a client. Ben Barrett, Esq. exclusively practices employment law.
  • Does the attorney seem knowledgeable in his or her field? Perhaps the most important feature of an attorney in any field of law; any attorney you hire should have a firm grasp of the law, understand your situation, and answer your basic questions. Your attorney is responsible for crafting a strategy tailored to your needs; if he or she is incompetent, they’re probably not your best option.
  • Does the attorney seem attentive and trustworthy? When attending your initial consultation, you should pay close attention to the answers your attorney gives you and how he or she responds to your concerns. If your attorney seemingly doesn’t care about your case or otherwise gives you a reason to feel uncomfortable, that attorney may not be the best fit. You should trust and feel confident in your attorney’s abilities and your attorney-client relationship.
  • How are the attorney and his or her law firm rated on Google? Checking out ratings on Google is one of the best ways to determine whether a product or service is worth your time and money.
