I think the first and probably the most important thing when choosing a law firm or a lawyer is to make sure they’ve got experience. There’s a lot of lawyers in town and quite frankly everywhere who are litigators but they’re not really trial lawyers, they don’t have much experience in actually getting into the courtroom and trying to cases to juries or arbitrators or what be it. So I think expertise in that field and experience is critical but the second thing, which I is probably equally as critical, is you want to find a lawyer that you can work with and can identify the client’s goals from the outset. If you can’t identify the client’s goals, you’re not going to be able to service the client and so finding a lawyer that can identify what the client’s goal is form the outset of the relationship and basically that will dictate and guide the entire representation. So I think those are the two big things having experience and expertise and actually trying cases but also somebody who understands the client’s business, the objectives. Because if are not on the same sheet of music from the start then you’re not going to be as happy in the representation and it’s not going to be as good of an outcome overall.
