Important Questions To Ask Your Litigation Lawyer
Estate litigation is never fun because it is often complex. If you are about to undergo estate litigation that requires the services of a lawyer, make sure you interview candidates before hiring them. Here are useful questions to ask them:
- How strong is my case? This is one of the most important questions you need to ask upfront. You want to know immediately what the lawyer thinks of your case. Is it winnable? Would you require a settlement to get a favorable outcome?
- How much will this cost me? There is no point pursuiing a lawyer that is well beyond your price range. Ask this question right at the beginning so you don’t end up wasting your time trying to work with an expensive lawyer.
- How much experience do you have? Working with a much experienced lawyer would prove to be valuable to your case because you know that he or she has worked around several estate litigation cases.
- Will you handle my case personally? This important because there are some lawyers out there that let their associates deal with cases. If you want personal legal services, hire a lawyer who would work with you side by side.
