Interviewing a Prospective Attorney

You need an attorney. You have found a few that seem like they have the experience you need. Follow these critical steps to increase your chances of getting the right attorney the first time. Step 1: Outline your needs in advance. Step 2: Don’t pay for an initial phone consultation. Step 3: Pay attention to the chemistry between you and the attorney. Step 4: Ask lots of questions. Step 5: Be prepared.   When you’re meeting with a prospective attorney for the first time don’t forget to ask:

  1. About the attorney’s accessibility – how will you get a hold of him/her when you need to talk, and how long will it take for them to get back to you.
  2. What part of your case the attorney will work on, and what parts will be handled by assistants, other attorneys, and administrative staff.
  3. What recent cases like yours that the attorney handled, and how they turned out.

Before meeting with a prospective lawyer while searching for a DUI lawyer in Louisville, make notes about your problem and gather any documents related to your issue to take with you. This will let you clearly detail your problem, and allow you to focus on whether or not you feel comfortable with the attorney.   If you’re unsure if your attorney is providing you with good representation, don’t hesitate to make a change. Trust your instincts. If you have any questions, contact Boulder attorney, Paul Stuber for a free phone consultation (303) 442-6448, or to schedule an appointment.

Finding the Right DUI or Criminal Attorney

Don’t expect to find a great lawyer just by picking up the phone book, or responding to a TV or radio advertisement. Finding the right DUI or criminal attorney will take a little more effort.

Personal referrals from someone who has experienced the same problem as you can give you some great leads. You should be able to find reviews online at:


Or, just go to google and type in “lawyer reviews” or “attorney reviews” and the city where you live. If that’s not working for you. Most state bar associations will have a website with attorneys listed by specialty, and information about each attorney.

Choose a Specialist

Working with a lawyer who is experienced with your issue is a must. Law is too specialized to work with an attorney without recent and successful experience with your issue.
