HOW TO CHOOSE A LAWYER ATTORNEY

The Lawyer Attorney Directory information is not intended to be a substitute for the legal advice of a licensed attorney. If you have any questions regarding a particular issue or legal problem you should seek legal counsel.

What Should I Expect Of My Lawyer And What Will He Or She Expect Of Me?

Here are a few tips about what to expect from your lawyer:

Your Lawyer Should:

• Give you frank, honest advice;

• Tell you the strong and weak points of your case;

• Keep you informed and follow your instructions, within the bounds of the law;

• Protect and defend you (his or her principal duty!). He or she should not make any agreements or take on any obligation which might jeopardize your rights or interests;

• While representing you, not represent any other client whose interests conflict with yours;

• Provide you, if you ask, with copies of all letters and documents involved in your case;

• Provide an itemized bill of all work done for you and all expenses incurred on your behalf.

Here are a few tips about what your lawyer will expect of you:

The Lawyer Will Expect You:

• To be prompt for court dates and appointments;

• To let him or her know how to keep in touch with you. If you have a change of address or phone number or place of employment, let your lawyer know; and

• To be completely honest -- even if it is embarrassing to tell the truth about your problem.

Remember, what you tell a Lawyer in private will be kept confidential. Even confessions to past crimes or criminal activity are going to be treated as confidential by your lawyer. The only exceptions to this rule of strict confidentiality are plans for future crimes and continuing criminal activity.

Qualities of a Good Lawyer Attorney

Lawyers come from many different backgrounds and have varied life experiences. A good Lawyer has the right mix of acquired skills, training, education, experience and natural abilities to resolve the specific dispute. An experienced Lawyer will probably have many of the following qualities:

• Overall "people" skills.

• Good verbal and listening skills.

• Thinks "outside the box."

• Helps people work together as a team.

• Impartial and neutral.

• Respect and politeness.

• The ability to gain confidence.

• Knowledge of the legal process.

• Balanced approach to control of the process.

• Initiative.

• Trustworthy.

• Keeps information confidential.

• Ability to remain calm under pressure.

The most important skills and abilities include impartiality, the abilities to communicate, and ability to define and clarify legal rights issues. It is advisable to interview several Lawyers before selecting the best one for your conflict situation.


WHAT IS THE LEGAL PROCESS?

The Lawyer Attorney Search for each legal category will display a list of Lawyers and Attorneys. Review their legal profiles. A local lawyer attorney is typically your best source of information. We suggest that you make contact with several lawyers to find legal representation that you are comfortable with. Expertise and legal fees will vary. We recommend an in-person consultation before deciding to retain a lawyer attorney.

How Much Will The Lawyer Charge Me For His Or Her Services? The lawyer's fee depends upon many variables, such as amount of time, the difficulty of the work, the skill required, the customary fee in your area for similar work, the experience, reputation and ability of the lawyer, and whether the fee is a set amount or contingent on the outcome of the case.

Some fee arrangements are: Flat fee: the lawyer may quote you a set amount or standard fee that he or she has arrived at for your type of legal problem. In addition, lawyers usually expect you to pay court costs and to reimburse them for out-of-pocket expenses, such as travel or copying expenses. It is important that you find out what any fixed fee covers.

Hourly fee: A lawyer may prefer to bill you by the hour. Such fees may vary widely depending upon the complexity of the legal work, the skill of the lawyer and whether there are time deadlines. You may wish to try to negotiate with a lawyer on his or her hourly rates. If you agree to an hourly arrangement, you and the lawyer could include a provision in your contract requiring the lawyer not to exceed a specified amount of time or money without obtaining your permission. Insist that you be kept advised every month of the number of hours that the lawyer is spending on your problem. You also have the right to ask for a written explanation of what the lawyer did during the hours he or she worked on your case.

Retainer:

Some lawyers also require an advance fee called a retainer. Ask the attorney what this covers. Occasionally, the retainer is a flat fee that will cover the lawyer's services regardless of the amount of time the lawyer spends working for you. So, it is important to ask whether there will be a refund if the attorney does not spend as much time on the problem as provided for by the retainer.

Questions about fees that you may want to ask the lawyer are:

• Can you give me an estimate of how much this legal matter will cost?

• Can we have a written fee agreement that sets forth not only my obligation to pay you, but also exactly what services you will provide?

What If I Have A Problem With My Lawyer? If you have a problem with your lawyer, you should first discuss it with him or her. Try to work out any problems. If the problems cannot be worked out, it is your right to fire your lawyer and to hire someone else to represent you.

If the situation occurs before your legal problem is settled, you should expect to pay a portion of the fee to the lawyer for time already spent. The lawyer has an obligation to return your file.

If you believe your lawyer has not acted in your best interests and has thereby done something illegal or unethical, you may wish to file a grievance against your lawyer. In such circumstances, contact your local bar association.

TYPES OF CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Disputes start out as simple annoyances or complaints before turning into conflicts. Most companies and individuals overlook the early warnings or try to "band-aid" the problem. How to address a dispute is a skill. Generally, we avoid dealing with a problem until it becomes a real crisis in our life. The end result is usually the same, either you address it now and pay... or pay for it later. Waiting for problems to fester not only affects us financially, but also these problems infect our health and positive state of mind.  Addressing problems, disagreements, annoyances or complaints immediately reduces our 'worry-time' freeing us up for more productive uses of our time and money.

Below are several approaches to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Unlike legal litigation, Alternative Dispute Resolution is are private and confidential. Settlements are legally enforceable in the United States and in most countries.

FACILITATION NEGOTIATION

Many disputes can be solved by having a neutral third party intervene as a facilitator and negotiator on our behalf. Facilitated negotiation is at the core of most Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes. It encourages an exchange of information and resolution options between parties. The interests and positions are defined and validated to craft a mutually agreeable compromise and settlement.

MEDIATION & CONCILIATION

The Mediation process involves a series of joint sessions and private caucuses. Mediation is a very flexible process that can be effectively used at any time during the course of the dispute. Because the mediation process is non-adversarial, there are numerous benefits over litigation in addition to saving time and money. The goal of mediation is to amicably resolve a dispute through voluntary efforts of the parties. The role of the mediator is to utilize patience, persuasion, and people skills to facilitate the conversation in order to explore options and reach settlement. Mediation is a voluntary process. When options are not easily forthcoming, the mediator(s) utilizes their experience and expertise to suggest possible outcomes. This process is referred to as Conciliation. Both Mediation and Conciliation allows the parties to maintain relationships and offers the greatest opportunity for creative problem solving.

ARBITRATION is the FINAL STEP BEFORE LEGAL LITIGATION.

It is an adversarial process where a neutral Arbitrator renders a decision, called an award, after there has been a presentation of evidence. Like a court trial, arbitration may include representation by legal counsel, pre-hearing discovery, written briefs, examination of witnesses and oral argument. The Arbitrator's decision is final.

LEGAL LITIGATION

Sometimes when negotiations and mediation do not provide desired outcomes. Litigation is the best action. Legal litigation is costly and time-consuming. It should be used only as the last resort. Read more information in our Alternative Dispute Resolution section:  www.ADRFAQ.com
