30 Jan Selecting the Right Lawyer
Take a breath. Slow down. You know better. Don’t act from panic, act from common sense.
You select an attorney the same way you make any other important decisions. Ask questions, lots and lots of questions. How many cases have you worked on? What were the outcomes? How long have you been working in the specific area of foreclosure defense? Do you have references? What areyour rights? What are your chances of success? What will success even look like? What do you want from the process? Did the attorney even ask what you wanted?
Talk with the attorney, and talk some more. In a slow economy, it’s easy for an attorney to jump into a new field without thoroughly studying the field and having the necessary experience.
