Tips and Other Information to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

The recent case of a San Antonio lawyer accused of stealing millions of dollars from his clients is a good reminder to us all about the importance of doing your homework when looking for a lawyer to represent you.

One site to check is the State Bar of Texas, which includes background information about Texas-based lawyers.  Check for any disciplinary actions or complaints against the lawyer you are considering hiring.

As with all things, shop around when looking for a lawyer, and talk to more than one lawyer about your case. There may be differing opinions about how to handle your case. And don’t be pressured. Make sure you’ve made your final decision on representation before signing an agreement.
