  • Finding a Good Lawyer. Arizona

    How dose one determine if a lawyer is good, prior to hiring him and letting him affect your case. I will be hiring a realist ate lawyer to write a demand letter to an escrow company.

    You might call your local bar assoc. for a referral. Do you have any family/friends who might have a lawyer to suggest?

      Find a good real estate lawyer

      Hi, In order to is first you have to consider these;

      * Look at the biographies and Web sites for the lawyers and their law firms. Do they appear to have expertise in real estate matters? Do they have any information on their Web sites that is helpful to you?
      * There are different types of real estate lawyers, so you'll need to look for one with expertise where you need it. Subcategories of real estate law include:
      o Residential
      o Commercial
      o Industrial
      o Agricultural
      o Eminent Domain
      o Land Use Matters
      o Landlord-Tenant
      * Expertise in one category doesn't mean expertise in other categories. Lawyers who represent lenders or landlords may not represent consumers with problems in this area. So if you're a borrower, a tenant or a consumer, check out who the lawyer and his or her firm primarily represent. If you can't tell, call the lawyer's office and ask.
      * Look for a list of representative clients. Are they the types of clients that you'd want your lawyer representing? Does the lawyer represent other businesses similar to yours?
      * Search the Internet under the name of the lawyer and his or her law firm. Can you find any articles, FAQ's or other informational pieces the lawyer has written that give you a level of comfort?
      * Ask other people if they have heard of the attorneys and what they think about them.
      * Contact your state bar association or go to their Web site to find out if the lawyer is in good standing.
      * Check out the yellow pages of your telephone directory. Does the lawyer advertise? If so, do you find the ad compelling? Helpful? Tasteful?
      * Check out the archives of your local newspaper. Has there been any publicity about the lawyer or the cases that he or she has handled?
      * Consider any special needs you have. For example, could you benefit from an attorney who speaks a language other than English?

        Go to their web and get the contact for free. Many would listen to you for free and might even tell you that they are not interested right away . It saves you time and the referral fee that way.

          ozlaw, please do not reply to old threads. The original poster hasn't posted since 5-2008. Thanks.

            It is still on the 1st page...some people will read every post on the 1st page as I did. So why not to provide more relevant information that can be helpful to others?

              If a post from 2008 is still on the first page, it means that page doesn't get much traffic. By responding to it, you bring it up to the top, which may make people think it is a new post. That wastes the time of the responders, who are all volunteers and have limited time to put into this, and who will now spend part of that time reading a question that's most likely already been resolved, instead of putting that time to a new question that doesn't have a resolution yet.
              The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

                Makes sense! Thanks for clarifying. Different forums seems to have different preference.

                Feel free to remove my posts here.
