The task of hiring a lawyer can be daunting for people going through difficult times in their lives, such as a separation ordivorce. Sometimes, hiring the right lawyer can have a big impact on the ultimate outcome of a case.
One of our firm’s partners, Leigh Sellers, was recently featured in the October 2012 issue of Women With Know-How (page 34). Ms. Sellers discusses the steps people should take when hiring a lawyer, such as conducting Internet research, interviewing attorneys through client consultations, and being wary of “Do It Yourself” fill in the blank legal documents (think LegalZoom). Whether or not to hire an attorney is ultimately the client’s decision, and should be done after careful consideration of all the practical and emotional issues of that client’s case.
