How to Hire an Attorney-Five Common Tricks Attorneys use to get Your Money Part 1

Many people go through life without ever needing an attorney. Most people, however, are in need of the assistance of an attorney at least once in their lives. They may need a will drafted, a contract reviewed, or a little help after a weekend of a little too much fun. In any event, hiring an attorney can be stressful and confusing. Most attorneys do not post a large amount of information about the quality of their work. Yes, attorneys will post the committees and organizations they belong to, where they went to law school, and what organizations have "given" them awards. There is also the reliance on a referral from a friend. While you may trust this friend implicitly, that does not mean that he knows how to pick an attorney.

This guide is an attempt by me, an attorney, to make sure that you are not fooled by common tactics used by subpar attorneys to get your business. While these tactics may be used by attorneys that do a tremendous job, these actions should be at least cautionary flags that warrant a little further investigation before you spend your hard earned money and put your trust in a certain lawyer.

These are just five "heads up" warnings to consider when trying to find the attorney that is right for you. There are of course more things to consider such as personal relationships, financial concerns, and your personal comfort with a certain attorney. However, these are some of the more deceptive means by which attorneys attempt to retain clients and you should know going into an attorney-client relationship the type of person you are dealing with. This is by no means an implication that all successful attorneys use some means of deception; there are many fantastic attorneys out there who are above board and will do an excellent job for you.

Check back tomorrow for the first trick.
