“What Should I Look For in an Attorney?

Hi. I’m Chris Merritt, Board Certified lawyer here at Merritt Law. A common question that we get is, “What should I look for in an attorney to represent me?”


Second thing you should look for is comfort. It’s important that you feel comfortable as you sit next to this attorney, be it in a collaborative law process or in a courtroom. It’s important that you feel comfortable in the advice and the information that they’re giving you as you make decisions to go forward.

Finally, the third thing is communication. It’s important that you find out what your lawyer’s normal policies are for returning emails and phone calls that help you find out information that you need to make decision as you go forward.

I hope this has been helpful. If you have any other questions that you’d like, please submit them in the comment section below.
