The selection and retention of a lawyer are important decisions that should not be based solely upon advertising, or even a recommendation. Before making your choice of lawyer, you should give the matter careful thought. You may also speak to the prospective lawyer or a principal of the prospective law firm, obtain substantive material, or both. For example, you might wish to ask a prospective lawyer or law firm to provide you with an online link or to send you some other written information regarding their qualifications and experience on a specific matter or area of the law.
