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?

Choosing a Mesothelioma Attorney

Choosing a Mesothelioma Attorney


The first step in a successful filing process is choosing an attorney. If you worked for a large corporation that closed or is bankrupt, funds were likely set aside to help pay medical and related expenses for mesothelioma patients.
A mesothelioma attorney is knowledgeable about these funds and will help you file a claim. In addition, a mesothelioma attorney is familiar with asbestos manufacturers and will determine who is responsible for your suffering.
When you talk to the asbestos attorney, be prepared to discuss past employment, health history and current health status. It is very important to hire a lawyer you feel comfortable talking to.

Mesothelioma Lawsuit Process
While everyone’s case is different, there are certain steps that apply to nearly everyone who files an asbestos-related lawsuit. Your attorney will handle each of these steps and explain the process along the way.
For the most part, mesothelioma lawsuits follow these steps:
Preparation
Your attorney will gather information about your history of asbestos exposure to determine who is responsible for your condition and where to file your lawsuit. You may be eligible to file your lawsuit in more than one jurisdiction.

Filing
Your lawyer must file a written complaint with a court to start the legal process. Your attorney will prepare and file this document. For your case to move forward, your complaint must follow different court rules on how the document is written and the details it provide
about your claim. An experienced attorney will be familiar with these rules and use this knowledge to help present your claims to the court.
Responses

Each defendant in your lawsuit will receive a copy of your complaint. They will have a certain amount of time — usually 30 days — to respond.
Because many years have likely passed since your asbestos exposure, the responsible company could now be a different company or could be bankrupt. It may take some time to locate and provide the appropriate people with your complaint. Your attorney will oversee this process.

Defendants rarely admit fault. They most likely will deny your claims and argue that your complaint is not valid or that someone or something else is responsible for your exposure to asbestos. They may even claim that your condition is not related to asbestos exposure. Don’t worry. This is normal. Your attorney will reply to each defendant’s responses
