What questions should I ask when hiring a law firm in Tempe?
There are nearly endless questions you can ask, but here are a few of the most important ones to get you started…
- How long have these attorneys practiced law?
- Have they ever had any bar complaints? (you can check this on the Arizona State Bar website)
- Where did they go to school?
- How many trials have they done?
- Is there a consultation fee for coming in to talk?
- Does the firm bill an hourly fee or a flat rate? (If it is a flat fee, ask what types of activities the fee covers).
- If you have a DUI, ask if the flat fee covers the DMV administrative hearing too.
- If you are hiring a firm out of Tempe, ask whether the attorney appears in court him or herself and whether the attorney ever covers hearings telephonically, leaving a client in court by themselves (you want an attorney who will be there in person with you).
