What To Look For In A Litigation Attorney

When seeking a litigation lawyer to represent you or your business, several crucial factors should guide your selection process. These include:

  • Experience: Look for an attorney who has a considerable amount of experience practicing law, especially litigation. An attorney with a robust background in litigation will possess the necessary skills and knowledge to navigate the complexities of the legal system effectively.
  • Results: When evaluating potential attorneys, consider their track record of results. It is more than the number of cases won. Check the quality of those wins and the outcomes achieved for clients. You can ask for references or case studies that demonstrate the attorney’s ability to secure favorable results, whether through successful trials, negotiated settlements or dismissed claims. A litigator with a proven history of success is more likely to deliver the results you desire in your case.
  • Compatible communication styles: Effective communication is essential in any attorney-client relationship. Seek an attorney whose communication style aligns with your preferences. This includes clear and concise communication, the ability to explain legal concepts in understandable terms and responsiveness to your inquiries and concerns. During your initial consultations, pay attention to how the attorney communicates and whether you feel comfortable discussing your case with them. A good fit in communication styles can facilitate a productive working relationship throughout the litigation process.
  • A pay structure that fits your needs: Litigation can be expensive, so it is crucial to discuss fees and billing arrangements upfront. Different attorneys may offer various fee structures, including hourly rates, flat fees or contingency arrangements. Hourly rates involve paying for the attorney’s time spent working on your case, while flat fees provide a set amount for legal services. Contingency arrangements, common in personal injury cases, mean the attorney only gets paid if they win your case, through a percentage of the awarded damages. Consider your budget and financial situation when selecting a pay structure, ensuring it aligns with your needs and preferences.

Our skilled litigators are well-equipped to advocate for your interests and achieve a successful outcome in your case.
