A lot of companies offer legal representation. However knowing who offers the right kind of experience and legal expertise is often harder than you think. In order to ensure you get the best possible chance of a positive verdict it is vital to know how to choose the right solicitor.
People often choose their solicitor because they know someone through friends or family members. The problem is this doesn’t necessarily mean you are getting the appropriate kind of representative for the particular legal matter that you are dealing with and it is this that could potentially harm your chances of getting a positive verdict.
A lot of people specialise in various types of law. While most solicitors will have the experience necessary to handle a variety of cases it is often best to go with a specialist in a particular field. For example in cases involving medicine then it is best to go with someone who specialises in medical law.
One thing to be wary of is price. Quality is not necessarily the only factor governing the price that a solicitor may quote you. For example, if their office is in an affluent area then they may charge higher prices in order to cover the additional overheads in order to stay in that particular area.
However, be very wary of anyone who charges a very low price. There are two main reasons why low prices can be dangerous. The first is that the firm takes on a lot of cases and processes them quickly. This often means they will look to settle cases quicker and this will result in less compensation for the client.
Another reason why looking for the cheapest possible representation is a bad idea is that a low quote can often be misleading- there may be a lot of hidden costs that they do not initially discuss with you and this could potentially result in the final bill being considerably more expensive than you’d expect.
A good test of a firm is to contact them- if you can talk to the people representing you then it will give you a clearer idea of whether or not they have the appropriate experience and listen to your questions and concerns. Trust your instincts- you need to decide whether or not you are comfortable with the people representing you!
