The first feature to consider is years of experience. Look carefully, because some law firms add up all the years of experience from their entire staff and quote this as their years of experience. You need to find out how many years experience each attorney has.
Ask them directly how many Lemon Law cases they have handled. If they are reluctant to answer, go seek help elsewhere. The best Lemon Law attorneys will answer this question without any problem. In addition, the best law firms will also tell you upfront how many cases they have won. You are searching for a law firm that has won at least 80% of their lemon law cases.
The next thing to look out for is the personal introductory session. This is commonplace with the highly professional law firms. You should not even have to ask for one. After first contact with the firm if one is not offer to you, go elsewhere. Attend this session, and when you leave, you should have an idea of how much your total cost would be should you hire that firm.
The next thing to investigate is availability beyond business hours. Timing is crucial for Lemon Law cases. Even though you’re keeping careful records, as required by the law, you might have a question or problem that you need to answer right away. If it is a weekend will you be able to get that question answered? A reputable law firm will have an answering service available for you, and you will get a call back within 24 hours of your message.
Lastly you need to choose a firm which will allow you to make the final decision as to which attorney will handle your Lemon Law case. Not all attorneys and clients can work well together. You know best which attorney will be able to meet your needs.
