HOW TO: SELECT A LAWYER THAT TICKS ALL THE BOXES
Being faced with a legal issue, dispute or offence is an extremely challenging ordeal – especially if you go it alone.
If you’re in the midst of a legal issue in Queensland, you will need to seek the advice of a professional lawyer as promptly as possible, to ensure the best outcome for you and your future.
Unfortunately, many Australians are unsure of how to proceed when they’re in the midst of a legal concern. Who do they look for? What are they looking for? Will they afford a lawyer?
However, when push comes to shove - it all withers down to the same consensus. The lawyer you select can be the difference between going to jail or remaining in the community.
Therefore, selecting a lawyer to represent you in the best possible way can certainly be a struggle for most Australians – especially the first-time offenders or first-time accused.
So, to see you through this decision, here are a few things you need to look for and consider when hiring or seeking advice from a professional law firm. You’ll need the one that fights for you, no matter the issue.
1. Do they have proven experience in your area of concern?
Not all Queensland based lawyers are the same. Some may specialise in one particular area only, whilst others may be well equipped to deal with various kinds of legal proceedings. Let’s put it this way. If the legal matter at hand were to concern property law, you wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) seek advice from a law firm who deals only in traffic offences.
Creevey Russell Lawyers employ a team of individual specialists, with proven experience in each field they represent. We are specialists in a range of legal fields under the Australian Legal System and are well equipped to swiftly handle your individual needs. Please contact us today for further information.
2. Review your correspondence
If you have contacted a law firm, it’s important to take note of your correspondence (the tone, the promptness and the responsiveness) and also, which forms of contact they have available. For example, if a law firm displayed online has no visible contact number, this is not a good sign. You want to make sure you’re dealing with a law firm who will listen to and respond to your questions or concerns in a timely manner throughout all stages the process.
Creevey Russell Lawyers’ displays a proven commitment to all clients. We’re dedicated to delivering service excellence. You’re in good hands with Creevey Russell Lawyers – expect to receive the best supportive legal advice and professional services with thorough communication, always.
3. Budget considerations
Budget considerations are noteworthy, of course, - unfortunately, however, people mistakenly set their budget as a top priority when looking for a lawyer. This is not the correct approach.
Budget should not be swaying your decisions dramatically. You should first, base your judgement on proven experience and quality service. Why? To put it simply, the price you may pay to seek help from experienced law firm will never he as costly as losing it all due to incompetent legal advice.
Should budget be a consideration? All individual circumstances will be different. Budget may be an unavoidable consideration for you. If this is the case, perhaps you may benefit from discussing finance options with a lawyer with proven experience and quality service – you may be unaware of certain financial options they offer.
