How to Hire a Business Lawyer in Miami

When you or your business is facing a legal issue, you need to find a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that the issue doesn’t get any worse or to mitigate your liability. The right lawyer will help ease your worries and keep you involved in the resolution of the matter. What other things should you keep in mind when you are researching and looking for the right Florida business attorney? Keep these four things in mind:

1.  Connection

Perhaps this is the most obvious factor, but you may not be able to put your finger on it right away. It’s crucial that you find an attorney that you can feel comfortable around. Maybe it’s even the biggest factor. If you do not trust or feel like you can confide in your attorney, if you feel judged or ignored or condescended towards, then they are not the lawyer for you.

2.  Experience/Background

Another key factor in picking the right lawyer for you is seeing if they have expertise in the area of law that you need help in. Lawyers are not like doctors in that they DON’T have to pick a certain specialty, a certain area of the law that they want to focus on. Lawyers can focus on one to as many areas of the law as they can. The problem with this is that there are so many laws that apply to each area of the law, and it is difficult to know and understand all of the applicable laws.

That being said, lawyers have gone to law school and are expected to conduct reasonable research to be able to help you with your issues. However, that is still not a replacement for a law firm that has a specialty. So, what you want to be looking for is a lawyer that has dedicated their firm to practicing in one to four areas of the law—such as business law, family law, bankruptcy law, etc. This is because lawyers who’ve dedicated themselves to a smaller range of areas in the law will have a deeper understanding of the statutes and precedent that applies, they know the state’s laws well, they know the ins and outs of the court system, and they have likely handled similar cases to yours. That’s who you want to entrust your case to.

3.  Communication

Last but not least, you want a lawyer that can clearly and easily communicate with their clients. You want a lawyer that will follow up with you on your case and will keep you updated when you ask for it. This goes hand-in-hand with the connection factor. You should understand what is happening in your case and know the next step to take. You should never be kept in the dark and wondering what’s happening.
