Finding a lawyer in New York City can be a daunting task. There are literally thousands of lawyers that claim to be the "best in NYC!" But obviously not everyone can be the best so something is wrong here. At Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson we think that people are approaching the situation wrong. The question isn't "How to pick the best lawyer in New York City", it should be, "How to pick the best lawyer in New York City For Me?"
Every case is different and so is every victim. You have to find a lawyer that is consistent in their experience and their values - a firm that takes a vested interested in your case AND in you. Here are some questions that you should consider before making a decision that can have a notable impact on your future:
Does this Attorney concentrate in the Practice area you are looking for?
- There are many different kinds of lawyers and they all specialize in something else. If you aren't picking a lawyer that concentrates within the parameters of your particularly case then you are missing out on a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience. Handling similar cases over time exposes these attorneys to potential loopholes and connections that other lawyers might not have access to or even be aware of.
Find out who will be working on the case if you hire a firm
- Many firms have inexperienced lawyers that will handle your case. You should either find out in advance who will be in charge of your case or select a firm that only has experienced and professional attorneys.
Ask about previous cases that they have settled or taken to court
- A great indication of how good a firm is, is their track record. If they have previously handled situations like the case that you would like to pursue then you should inquire about how much money was awarded so you can have an indication of what to expect.
