How to Choose a Good Attorney Step 1: Start Your Search

Here you will be able to decide if they are a good fit or not.

How to Choose a Good Attorney Step 3: The Case

Let your potential attorney look through your case. Ask him or her how they will approach the case, how they will build the case, and so forth. This is an important step in the process.
