Getting involved in a legal situation can not only be difficult, but also quite confusing for those who normally have nothing to do with this area. For this reason, it is crucial to have a lawyer who can guide you throughout the process, help you make the best decisions and take care of your interests.
However, to find a good lawyer you need to not only make sure that they have the necessary experience to handle your case, but also that they are someone you can feel comfortable with and trust to represent you.
People often don’t know what to expect or what to look for in an attorney and they could end up hiring someone that they aren’t happy with.
Here are some of the most common reasons why clients may feel unhappy with the attorney they have chosen:
· Lack of communication. From answering your calls, or calling you back when they are busy, to keeping you informed at every step of the process. This doesn’t mean that you can keep calling them all the time, but your attorney should maintain an open communication with you and keep you on top of the situation.
· Unrealistic expectations. Either because the client believes in expectations that are not real, and which the lawyer does not clarify for them; or that the lawyer is the one who gives the client unrealistic expectations regarding the outcome of their situation. This could be due to a lack of experience on the part of the attorney, or a lack of time to review and analyse the client’s circumstances.
· Personal differences. Personalities can sometimes clash or have no chemistry to establish a relationship of any kind. That is why it is important to meet with an attorney and discuss your case before hiring one. You can often rely on your intuition to guide you as to the person that you feel most comfortable with before hiring them.
