You need to find reputable Greensboro attorneys who will fight for you and get you the best possible outcome in court. So how do you find an attorney that is right for you? Consider the following suggestions.

  1. Find an attorney who specializes in your type of case. If you are interested in fighting a speeding ticket, be sure to look for a traffic lawyer who handles speeding tickets and other traffic violations. If you need criminal defense, choose a lawyer who has a reputation for success in criminal cases. Make sure the lawyer has experience in the type of case you are faced with.
  2. Ask people you trust if they can recommend Greensboro attorneys they have worked with before. If someone you know has hired an attorney for a reason similar to yours, ask them who they hired and the outcome of the case. Find out if the law firm was easy to contact when necessary.
  3. Get recommendations from your local Bar Association. The Greensboro Bar Association can help you to find certified, reputable Greensboro attorneys that specialize in the practice area for your case. You can also check with the Bar to see if a certain lawyer is in good standing.

Once you have a few names in mind, call and set up consultations. This is also your opportunity to determine if the lawyer is right for you. During that first meeting, look for or ask about:

  • Experience. You want an attorney with plenty of experience, especially in cases similar to yours. An established law firm will have multiple attorneys who specialize in different types of cases.
  • Previous cases and outcomes. Ask about previous cases like yours that the attorney has tried. Find out the outcomes and the length of time it took for other cases like yours to be settled.
  • Fees. Of course, you should find out how much it will cost to have the attorney handle your case. Also, find out if you will be charged regardless of the outcome of the trial.
  • Confidence. An attorney should exude confidence, speak clearly, and have a professional appearance. If you have any doubts about the confidence of the attorney after meeting him, keep looking.
