Have you recently filed for a litigation claim and are now wanting to make sure that you have everything in order? Are you trying to find out if your litigation lawyer is the one who can handle your claim? Going to court and facing a jury is a skill not all lawyers are good at. You have to make sure that they understand all the details of the claim, so they can represent you well in court. Hobbs Giroday Barristers & Solicitors believe that a litigation lawyer should have strong dedication towards ethical standards. Without this, you may get yourself into a much bigger mess than you’re already in. Here are four ways to know that you have the right litigator who can take care of your legal needs.
1. He has a good case and court history.
This may sound like a no-brainer when choosing any kind of lawyer. But it’s always a good idea to ask for his history even if you’ve already hired him.
2. He should be comfortable with settling.
If you think things can be resolved without going to court, your litigator must (1) explain this to you right away, and (2) be ready and willing to offer a settlement over a trial.
3. He explains things in detail and sets your expectations.
From your first meeting to everything else after that, a good litigator will always make sure that you understand everything that’s going on and all that has to be done for it. He should also help you set your expectations, good and bad.
4. He makes you feel at ease.
Dealing with a lawyer that you’re not comfortable with will just add to the stress that you already have. If you find your litigator approachable and easy to talk to, then you’re on the right track.
In circumstances like this, it’s important to have a good working relationship with your lawyer. These are times when you have to lay down all the necessary information, so they can help you the best way they can. You’re on a two-way street here. So, remember to be open to what your lawyer has to say and be willing to give all the relevant facts needed for your claim. Checking off this list may just get you the results you want out of this case.
