How to Find a Good Lawyer – Part 4
Paid Legal Consultations
Some lawyers charge for their consultations. Your search to find an attorney should take into consideration that, unlike a free legal consultation, a paid consultation is more likely to provide you with more time to speak with the lawyer so that you can fully discuss the legally relevant facts about your specific situation. A paid consultation is also more likely provide you with ample time to review any documentation that may be legally relevant to your specific situation.

This may be important to you in your search to find an attorney given that, if you are provided sufficient time to give a full and complete explanation of the legally relevant background regarding your situation, you are more likely to receive more complete legal advice because it is more likely to be geared to your specific situation. Additionally, you are also more likely to leave with a better understanding of how the law applies to your situation because you will not have to rush through the consultation. And, you are more likely to explore collateral matters that may be relevant to your situation because you will have more time.

Is the Consultation Designed to Help You?
However, keep in mind that a paid consultation will not be of any use to you in your search to find an attorney if the paid consultation is just a longer version of the typical free legal consultation. In order for a paid consultation to be of use to you in your search to find an attorney, the consultation needs to be designed to help you assess your situation from a legal standpoint. The consultation should also be geared to help you find the best approach to your situation or the best possible solution to your legal problem. In order to help you choose a good attorney, the paid consultation should not be a long advertisement about how great the lawyer is unless for some reason you want it to be.

What Should the Consultation Cover?
Bottom line, regardless of the type of consultation you select, any consultation you schedule in your search to find an attorney should be designed to actually help you. The consultation should provide you sufficient time with the attorney to go over the legally relevant details of your specific situation. The consultation should provide you sufficient time to go over the documents that are relevant to your specific situation. And, the consultation should allow you to discuss the law that applies to your specific situation. A consultation that provides this will also help you choose a good attorney that is not going to be rushing you or cutting you short when you need help.

Additionally, the consultation should allow you to discuss the process that typically applies to situations such as yours. The consultation should allow you to explore the different legal options that may be available to you. The consultation should allow you to consider the pros and the cons of each legal option. And, the consultation should allow you to explore how the different possible outcomes may affect you in the future. A consultation that provides this will also help you find an attorney that is more likely to make sure that you understand why you should do certain things, why you should avoid others, and what is happening every step of the way.

Are You Getting a Good Value?
It is unlikely that a free legal consultation will allow you to accomplish all of the above because free legal consultations are normally limited to 15 or 20 minutes and many of them are over the phone. A paid consultation is more likely to offer you all of the above. Nevertheless, even though you may decide that a paid consultation is more likely to get you closer in your search to find an attorney, you should still try to make sure that the cost of the consultation is reasonable and that you will be getting a good value for your money.
