What to look for when looking for a lawyer
When “shopping around” for a lawyer, what should you actually be looking for?
Many law firms have a lot of the same messaging on their site: a list of services and sometimes a personal anecdote about the lawyer (and sometimes both written in that dry, legal jargon!).
At the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter, we know that our website is like a business card, but our business is in conversation. That to say that many of our clients are unsure and confused about the legal process and their place in it, until they have a conversation with us.
Working with a lawyer depends a lot on a foundation of trust and built rapport, to have those authentic conversations that address your concerns and help you move forward with your case. Choosing a lawyer is a big deal, because you don’t just need the right type of lawyer, you need the right lawyer.
That’s why getting on the phone quickly can be the best way to get direct answers to your most pressing concerns and see how you’re treated in the process.
Scheduling a consultation is also a great way to weed out your options based on specialty, availability relative to your urgency, and general compatibility.
The truth is that today, you can align yourself with legal representation that reflects your political views and / or sexual orientation because these are now specialities in the law, and this is powerful. It’s possible to have a lawyer who will understand the nuances in the law for minority communities.
Our firm provides family law services for LGBT individuals and other marginalized families in the Charlotte, NC area. Give us a call today to schedule a personalized consultation with Janice to discuss your needs.
