How to choose a lawyer

Finding a good lawyer doesn't have to be hard.

What you need to know about your lawyer?

Here are a few things you need to consider when choosing a lawyer and what you need to know.

  1. Determine what kind of lawyer you need. Lawyers generally specialize in certain fields (for example criminal law, employment law, family law).
  2. Contact the Law Society in your state or territory to obtain a list of lawyers with specialties in the area you need assistance. Often this information is also recorded on their website.
  3. Look at online reviews of lawyers, such as their company’s Facebook page, Google reviews, etc.
  4. Speak to your friends and family. Find out if they have a lawyer whose services they would recommend.
  5. Compile a list of lawyers and then review the company website. It’s also worth checking their social media feeds, such as LinkedIn and Twitter to ensure they work in the area in which you need assistance, and that they are professional in their dealings and provide easy-to-understand information. 
  6. Once you have a shortlist, meet with them! Take relevant documents to the meeting ask questions and choose a lawyer you feel comfortable with. Often legal matters take some time to resolve, so it’s important to choose a lawyer you feel comfortable with as you’ll be speaking with them quite a bit!
  7. Once you have selected your lawyer, you will be required to sign an agreement about their fees and what work they will perform.
