Though a general practice lawyer may sometimes be adequate for your needs, it is always preferred to match your specific legal concern with a lawyer or firm that has extensive experience in that area of law.
Timing can also play a vital role in achieving a satisfactory outcome. Seeking legal advice as quickly as possible can help you avoid costly “fixes” that may otherwise be necessary to win your case.
How do you find the right lawyer?
You should then request referrals from friends and family members who may have been through your same exact situation and can recommend a lawyer based on their experience; this is certainly a good place to start. Another reliable way to find a lawyer that fits your case is searching your local bar association, which will have a referral list of attorneys, listed by specialty. If you are more comfortable surfing the web for answers, visit Martindale-Hubbell, another excellent resource for those seeking an attorney.
Other options include simply asking for a lawyer’s track record during a free consultation or initial visit. During this visit, explore the lawyer’s or firm’s credentials, their past experience in your case’s needs, and their fee structure.
Our final piece of advice on finding the right lawyer for you is to make your decision based upon a list of intangibles that you hold privately. Do you feel compatible with the lawyer? Do you want a large firm or a smaller one? Ultimately, only you can decide on who is the right attorney for your case.
I would like to let you know that all the work and assistance you have given me through this legal process is very much appreciated. I want to thank you and your firm for helping me through a difficult time.

Mr. Hilado assisted me with my Social Security disability claim. With his help, we were able to get Social Security disability insurance on the initial go round. The process was made easy by his office. I had the results and approval back only after 2 months of Mr. Hilado submitting my motion to reconsider.
