After an accident, the victim is left standing at a cross roads, confused as to who to approach and what to do.  The answer is to find the right lawyer for the case.  Finding the best Richmond lawyer can often mean finding the solution to the problem.

A person can start by picking up names of potential attorneys.  Sometimes, friends and family members may have good suggestions.  State Bar-approved referral services can be reliable sources.

The next step to hiring the best Richmond lawyer for your case is to call the lawyer's office and ask for any kind of written information, such as a brochure.  If this is not provided by the lawyer, then he or she is not worth pursuing.  If they have not taken the time to put together meaningful consumer information in writing, it could reflect on their interest in the bottom line over serving the client.

Once you have consulted via phone and obtained written information, narrow the field to a few choices.  Most attorneys offer a free consultation for the first session.  Use this session to gauge your level of comfort with and trust in the lawyer.  After all, while you are in times of stress and pain, you must be able to completely rely on the attorney for the legal aspects.

When you believe you have found the best Richmond lawyer for your case, it is essential to be open with them.  The questions that are in your mind may be related to the case.

You have the right to question the attorney regarding any experience he or she has in handling Richmond cases similar to yours.

You may want to find out if the attorney has malpractice insurance, or has been disciplined by the State-Bar association.

The attorney must be able to give you a complete account of your case including the overview, the challenges faced, and the process that the case will undergo.

Based on the information obtained during your search, you may want to rank the potential Richmond laweyers.  Now, using those rankings, select the best Richmond lawyer for your case.  This will be one of the decisions that you make in determining the outcome of the case.
