So, how do you know you’ve chosen the right lawyer to help your business, defend you in court, or help you write important documents? The American legal market is full of talented attorneys, but it is possible to encounter someone not fully qualified to bring you the best possible sponsorship and counsel. That’s why we want to explore some simple strategies for selecting a good attorney, and then show how Kenneth J. Nota fits the bill.
Selecting the Right Lawyer
- State Licensing Requirements
This is very basic, but you would be surprised at the number of online scammers these days. Always rule out the worst-case scenarios by vetting your lawyer for his/her state licensing. In Sarasota, that means making sure the attorney has an active license in the State of Florida.
- Consult with Friends, Family, and Colleagues
Chances are you have a business colleague who needed legal advice or defense at some point. Choosing a lawyer is not radically different from any other market mechanism like finding a good car or insurance broker. Find out who the folks around you like and then further research their credentials.
- Read Through Their Website and Consult Online Rating Resources
The Internet gives us a great chance to access reviews of all sorts of companies and services, and the legal business is no exception. You should probably start by reading the lawyer’s website and asking yourself whether you think they appear professional and trustworthy. Make sure they practice the kind of law most relevant to your needs. Good lawyers will also indicate their membership of third-party community groups and local business organizations.
