Q: I have a list of questions to ask an attorney about his background and experience, but I have no idea how to determine if he will be a good match for working with me on my workers’ compensation claim. Can you suggest a few questions to help guide me?
Absolutely. Chances are, a skilled Glenn workers’ comp lawyers will address many of your questions about their experiences and backgrounds as they introduce themselves at the start of your consultation.
A big part of the reason Ledgerwood Law Group offers initial consultations at no cost is because that first meeting is also a prime opportunity to give our prospective clients a sense of how we would work together as a team. Some helpful questions to ask might be:
- How will you communicate with me? As a follow-up, you might want to see how long it typically takes to return messages.
- When there is a decision, will you give me all the information and expect me to come to a decision independently, or offer me guidance on my best option? Everyone has preferences.
- How can I help my case? Generally, the best outcomes occur when a client is invested in the process.
- Is there anything I haven’t considered? This question is a good way to capture any elements of your case you haven’t considered, and to see how you like his or her response.
