How do you choose the best lawyer for your needs

How do you choose the best lawyer for your needs? Choosing legal services is like choosing any other product or service: the wise consumer conducts thorough research before making an informed decision. Once you secure several lawyer referrals with expertise in the appropriate practice area, you should carefully research each candidate (for tips on how to find a good lawyer, see How to Find a Lawyer). Below are five steps to choosing the best lawyer for your legal needs.
Conduct Candidate Interviews
One of the best ways to assess a lawyer’s legal ability is by interviewing them. Most attorneys will provide an initial consultation (usually an hour or less) at no charge.

 Below are a few questions to consider:
What experience does the lawyer have in your type of legal matter?
How long have they been in practice?
What is their track record of success?
What percentage of their caseload is dedicated to handling your type of legal problem?
Do they have any special skills or certifications?
