Finding a Lawyer

What should you look for in an attorney?

A person would want to select an attorney who is proficient and competent in that particular area of the law. For example, if you have been involved in a personal injury, you would want to select an attorney who has some experience and training in that area of law. Law is very specialized and many attorneys specialize in a few areas of law.

Some attorneys specialize in intellectual property (copyright, trademarks, patents), family law, employment law, personal injury, medical malpractice defense, or criminal law. If you are facing criminal charges, you need the services of an attorney well versed in criminal law. Likewise if you are looking to trademark a business slogan, you need the services of someone who is knowledgeable in intellectual property law.
