What to Look for in a Trial Attorney

Scales of Justice

Whether you’ve been served with a lawsuit or you’ve been wronged and are contemplating legal action, at some point as a businessperson you may need to hire a trial attorney. Business litigation can be a lengthy process, and you will be working closely with your attorney the entire time.

A good trial attorney will have several characteristics that will help you get the most out of this potentially long-lasting relationship. Experience is key—your attorney should understand the law governing your case and know his or her way around the courtroom. Ask your attorney for client referrals. The more satisfied former clients your attorney has, the more likely you will be satisfied too.

You should also expect your attorney to lay out a sound plan and strategy that make sense to you from the outset. If something does not make sense, don’t be afraid to ask. Your attorney should be approachable, willing to answer your questions, and most importantly, should strive to achieve your goals.

As your lawsuit progresses, your attorney should remain accountable to you and your case. This means being accessible, keeping you informed of any major developments, and always providing your bills in a transparent fashion.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you should find an attorney you like. If you dread communicating with your attorney, you probably will not use him or her in the most effective fashion. This is a relationship that could last a long time, but choose carefully and your attorney will help you emerge with the best possible results.
