Choosing the Right Lawyer (Video)

More than anything, the Ellis County Bar Association is asked by the public to assist in finding a lawyer. Choosing a lawyer is a major decision and you need to ensure you select the right lawyer for your needs. The Ellis County Bar Association created the following video to assist the citizens of Ellis County in choosing a lawyer:

When selecting a lawyer, you’ll want to:

1. Seek personal recommendations from people you trust. Good lawyers usually have an established reputation in the community.

2. Check the Ellis County Bar Association website for lawyers.

3. Look for ratings and reviews of lawyers in your area.

4. Look at the lawyer’s website or check the profile.

5. At this point, you should have a short list of lawyers. Call the lawyers and schedule a consultation.

6. Use your best judgment after meeting with the lawyer. Your relationship can last many years depending on the circumstances of your case and you want to have a good working relationship.
