Litigation Law Firm

If you have found yourself in need of hiring a litigation lawyer, then it is common to feel overwhelmed. There is so much information out there that you could easily get lost in what is the most important part for you. 

There are probably a million different questions you can ask yourself, but the top one just might be how do you know you have a great litigation law firm in Maryland? Here at Brown Kiely LLP, we’ve put together a list of what makes a great litigation law firm, and what you should look for in one. 

Things to Consider When Selecting a Litigation Lawyer

If you are ready to hire a lawyer then you should be sure you have considered all the factors. Sadly, not all law firms are made equal and you deserve the best quality you can. Here is what you should look for in your law firm and lawyer: 

  • Experience

Before you hire a lawyer you are going to go through an interview process. Take this time to directly ask your lawyer about their litigation experience. Ask them how they have handled cases like yours before and what the outcome is. While they could give you a monetary outcome, know that often that large number doesn’t include the legal fees. 

  • Reputation 

Ask around about the reputation of the law firm. Do your homework and see if you can see if they have a sound reputation and track record of success. If you can’t find anything on your lawyer then chances are they aren’t for you. 

  1. Geographic Location 

Look for a lawyer who serves in your geographic location. This ensures that who you hire knows the laws of your state and your county. It helps ensure that you won’t have to worry about a lawyer who isn’t up to date in your area and you also won’t have to worry about any major expenses for travel. 

  • Personality 

It sounds strange to worry about the personality of your lawyer, but the truth is it is important. You want to find a litigation lawyer that is going to align with you. There is nothing good that will come from working with a lawyer that you don’t get along with. When you have someone who you can work with you will have a strong relationship and a better chance at understanding the case. 

  • Organization 

You don’t want to work with a lawyer or law firm that isn’t organized. If your lawyer is sorting through piles of paper or calls aren’t behind handled then they may not have the time to devote to your case and you should look somewhere else. 

When it comes to finding the right litigation law firm for you, you have to consider everything. If you still have questions don’t hesitate to reach out to Brown Kiely LLP and we will do everything we can to get you the answers you need.
