Why Choosing The Right Attorney is Critical to Your Case!

Getting the right attorney to represent you makes all the difference in your case!


You wouldn’t use a pipe wrench to wash a window, or a toilet brush to clean your teeth. Why? Because using the wrong tool for the job gets you disastrous results! It’s the same with hiring an attorney. And no, we’re not talking about generalities here – of course you wouldn’t call a car mechanic to represent you in a drunk driving case, or a medical doctor to be your lawyer in a murder case. (Although you’d be shocked at the number of people that take legal advice from folks with  absolutely no knowledge at all of Michigan law.) But this is far more specific.


We’re talking about getting the right attorney for your case, rather than just any attorney, or even the wrong attorney. Believe it or not, just because someone’s a lawyer, doesn’t mean they’re the right one for you. Let’s take a look at a few facts you need to keep in mind when selecting an attorney in Michigan to help you during a difficult time.


  1. Choose the right type of attorney!


In the same way that a doctor can specialize by choosing to practice a specific type of medicine (think cardiology, dermatology, and endocrinology as just a few examples), top lawyers usually focus on a specific type of law. There are many different types of law that an attorney could choose to practice. A few examples include family law, criminal defense, patent law, real estate law, school law, civil rights law and bankruptcy law, to name but a few.


Getting a Michigan attorney who focuses primarily on the type of law that applies to your situation is hugely important and in fact is often critical to the outcome of your case! While a lawyer who specializes in  aviation law could legally represent you during your divorce, we wouldn’t recommend that! And you could certainly get an attorney who practices estate law to handle your armed robbery trial, but the outcome would probably be a disaster! So make sure the attorney you choose is highly experienced in the type of law that applies to your case!


  1. Choose a reputable attorney!


Now that you’ve narrowed down your search to just the attorneys who practice the type of law that applies to your particular situation, you still have a really large pool to wade through. Figuring out that you need a criminal defense attorney to represent you in a Michigan murder case is a great first step, but there are lots of criminal defense attorneys in the Great Lakes state. So how do you pick the right one?


A great start would be looking online at reviews left by their clients. Check Facebook, Google+, Avvo, and any other site where clients have left reviews. While you can always check a law firm’s website, some are likely to curate their reviews, so you only get one side of the story. See what people have said about them in the past. Look for a long history. Are they honest and hard working? Do they get good results? Online research is a good tool to narrow down your search.


  1. Choose an attorney you get along with!


Whatever you hire an attorney to help you with, you need to realize that they’ll be working for you, and with you, in a rather personal way. Add to that the stress involved, and you have the potential for a very volatile situation. So it’s important that you and your attorney get along. The best way to ensure that is to meet with them before you decide to hire them.


Many attorneys here in Michigan offer a free consultation before you make a decision about whether or not you decide to hire them. Some consultations are on the phone and others are in person. This is in part because it’s important to make sure that they’re able to take on your case before making a commitment. But it’s also a chance for you to speak with them, and make sure it’s a compatible match. So if you plan on hiring an attorney, always make use of the free consultation first, to ensure that you and the attorney can work well together!


  1.  Be sure you can afford the attorney!


Attorney fees vary a lot from one attorney to the other. Most attorneys know what they are worth. If one attorney is charging $5,000 for a case and a different one is charging $15,000 for that same case, there’s usually a reason for that difference. It is often said that you get what you pay for. Obviously you want the very best attorney you can afford.
