Hiring a lawyer is a major purchase for most people or businesses. After all, a lawyer costs thousands of dollars and is handling some of your most difficult problems.
Learning how to hire the right people in any position is an art form. Hiring the right lawyer for you (or any professional, such as a doctor, dentist or accountant) is no different.
In fact, because there is much to say on the topic, I have created an entire five post series on the topic, called, fittingly, “How to Hire a Lawyer.”
For those of you who want the 60-second cliff notes, though, here’s a video. It’ll give you a place to start, but I still recommend signing up for the five post series in your inbox.
How do I find the right attorney for my business?
How do I find the right attorney for my business?” That’s a great question. The best attorney for you is someone who understands you, your business, your goals and strategies, and is someone whom you trust. You can research attorneys by checking with the state bar, looking at their website, reading articles or blogs they may have posted, or watching their videos. When you are ready, interview the attorney and do not be afraid to ask how they would deal with your most vexing problems. The attorney should interview you back, to understand your needs and determine whether they are someone who can genuinely help you. Go for an attorney who listens to you, understands your problem, and exhibits honesty, compassion and wisdom. Got more questions?
