Questions to Ask a Lawyer

If you need a lawyer, it's important to hire the best lawyer for your situation. Generally, this means that it's a lawyer whose practice area is in the same area as your legal matter, and it's a lawyer you can afford. It's best to research the lawyers you're considering hiring, and once you've narrowed the field, it's helpful to have an initial consultation with a couple of your top choices. FindLaw's Questions to Ask a Lawyer section provides guidance about interviewing a lawyer before hiring him or her and how to research the disciplinary record of an attorney. You can also find useful links to state bar associations, which regulate the practice of law within their state.
