Quality of an employment lawyer can be determined by:
-Whether your matter is something they handle regularly
-Their client reviews
-Their level of experience
First, you will want to ensure that your employment matter is something they handle often. You don’t want someone that doesn’t regularly take on your kind of case. Also, if your case is a litigation matter, you will want to be sure that they regularly practice in the court where your case is pending, or where it will be filed.
Second, you will want to look at their client reviews to see whether their past clients are happy with their services. Client reviews can tell you a lot about what kind of lawyer you are about to hire.
Third, the lawyer’s level of experience will allow you to know that they have the necessary expertise to get you a satisfactory outcome. While years of experience doesn’t always make a better lawyer, you can ask a lawyer how many years they have been practicing employment law specifically to get a sense of their level of experience.
A responsive lawyer is a must when you are looking to hire a lawyer. What is the lawyer’s general practice for returning phone calls and emails? Understanding response times will save you a lot of frustration and prevent your case from being at the bottom of the pile.
You will want your lawyer’s personality to be a good fit with yours. Are you looking for someone more patient, professional, and assertive? Be sure to trust your gut when you have an initial call or consultation with an employment lawyer. You want to feel comfortable and like you are in good hands.
There are law firms of all sizes and rates. Some firms even offer alternative pricing to accommodate modern legal trends toward flat fees. You will want to go in “eyes wide open” with your legal budget to make sure that the employment lawyer you choose is within your budget.
While an employment lawyer can’t guarantee results, they can speak with you about your ideal outcome, and give you an honest assessment of whether it is realistic and within reach. Be sure to discuss your ideal outcome with potential employment lawyers to make sure you get what you need out of the legal process.
