Selecting a Law Firm:
A Guide and Checklist

     Probably the most vexing and impactful decision facing someone with a legal challenge is

how to find the right lawyer

It goes without saying that results are critical. So how will you know if the lawyer you are considering is suited to help you and your family obtain the results you need?

Here are some questions to consider as you weigh options for representation:

  1. Is this attorney responsive?

  2. Am I compatible with this attorney?

  3. Am I going to receive candid advice and counsel?

  4. Is this attorney adequately insured for errors and omissions?

1. Responsiveness: Look for an attorney who not only takes the time to understand your legal issues, but also has the care and capacity to give your case the fullest attention. 

At Walsh Estate & Family Law, we maintain a strict limit on the number of clients so that we can maximize focus on the clients we have. Our clients can expect fast response times, and regular case updates. As a client, you will know, regularly:

(1) what happened;

(2) what's happening; and

(3) what's going to happen next in your matter. 

2. Compatibility: Working with your attorney can last for months or even years. An attorney-client relationship 

works best when there is real working collaboration.

3. Candor: A lawyer who only tells you what you want to hear does not have your best interest at heart. 

The only advice that serves your interests is candid advice. At Walsh Estate & Family Law, your objectives are the priority, 

4. Security: Is your attorney insured for for errors? Everyone makes mistakes, but you want to make sure that your lawyer - and by extension your legal matter - is properly insured for errors and omissions.
