A WORD OF ADVICE TO THOSE SEEKING AN ATTORNEY
The relationship between a lawyer and a client involves a greater degree of trust than any other professional relationship. There will almost certainly be one of more crossroads in every case where you will have to make a decision relying on the advice of your lawyer. This may involve an initial determination of whether or to what extent your position in the case is supported by the law and the facts of the case. It may involve the decision whether to try the case to a judge or jury or to accept an offer of settlement. You deserve to represented by a lawyer who gives you a firm confidence that their advice is sound and based on knowledge of the law, familiarity with the facts, your objective in the case and adequate preparation. You should not choose a lawyer in whom you cannot confidently place your trust or who does not share your belief that your legal matters are important.
