Important Considerations To Know When Choosing A Lawyer
Who to hire for legal services?
This is a question most people are faced with at some point. You certainly need to make sure the lawyer has the credentials and experience for the work you are seeking, but you also must be comfortable interacting with the lawyer. We strive to make you feel confident that we have the experience but also that you can discuss your case thoroughly so you don't continue to feel anxious, confused or concerned about your legal issue once you have hired us to manage your task.
You must be in a partnership with your lawyer
If it is a matter affecting your business then you should feel as if the lawyer is treating your business like their own. You should be comfortable to give them a task and know they will come back with answers and solutions that they would employ in your shoes. We are in a partnership with you and will take your problems as if they are our own problems and handle them together.
Don't Get Shuffled
We've heard clients tell us of prior experiences with firms that bill them for services provided by people working on their matters who they've never even heard of. We don't do that. We work as a team and may have more than one lawyer on the file, but you'll know who is working on your case. MMFL wants to serve and work with you to solve your legal issues. We're all on the same team, working for you. Find us as lawyers, but remain friends of our firm.
Disclose Every Detail
You must be comfortable to disclose all facts about your problem. If you do not feel comfortable then it creates a hindrance to your case and may cause problems in the result. We want you to know that we are here as confidants to take all relevant information and design solutions and strategies with the complete picture.
