What is the best way to locate and retain the proper attorney for a specific legal issue?
I totally understand that time is money for attorneys as it should be. Nevertheless, I find the process difficult and confusing and getting expensive. For example, I paid an attorney 500 dollars for 1 hour initial consultation. I only got about 25 mins when he kind of brushed me off so I left. I needed an employment attorney w experience in education law.
The best strategy is to call 3 or so attorneys and ask them if they provide a free consultation. Some will, some won't. Very generally speaking, if the attorney is highly technical, they'll usually want a consultation fee. If they are more personality driven, they'll do a consultation for free. It just depends on what kind of advocate you want working for you.
