When You Need a Lawyer

Questions to Ask a Lawyer

Is it proper to ask if anyone else will be working on my case?

Yes. Ask if nonlawyers, such as paralegals or law clerks, will be used in researching or preparing the case. If so, will there be separate charges for their services? Who will be consulted if the lawyer is unsure about some aspects of your case? Will the lawyer recommend another attorney or firm if this one is unable to handle your case?
