The first meeting is crucial in Hiring a Lawyer

It is completely understandable that most automobile drivers meet Cincinnati DUI Lawyers only when they are already facing DUI charges. After all, not all of us are having coffee with a circle of lawyers. Thus, we only know a DUI lawyer when we need one. Also, it is relatively understandable as well if most people dealing with a DUI don’t know what to do and what to expect during a consultative meeting with a lawyer. Here are some suggestions from a group of Cincinnati DUI attorneys that may be useful. Here’s a little help.

A DUI consultation is your initial get together with a DUI attorney. Most good lawyers don’t charge for initial consultations. Often, these meetings don’t require you to avail of their services. It will only serve as a way for the lawyer to assess your case, check if he can help you and inform you of the possible approach he can take to represent you. On your end, it will be your chance to get a feel of the things to come. It’s an opportunity for you to decide whether or not you trust this DUI attorney to handle your case.

Finding someone will not be easy, but it’s not too hard either. When faced with charges as serious as DUI, you need to make sure that you don’t get just any lawyer you or your family members know. While all lawyers may know the law very well, it is important that you find one that specializes in the case that you are in. It will not hurt to check his educational background, professional affiliations and past client records. It is a good idea to ask the lawyer about this at your initial face to face. He will be happy to fill you in. Just don’t be too forward and try to ask him of his résumé.

As stated, you do not have to hire this attorney after the first meeting. In the same manner, he is not required to take in your case. He will have the free hand in choosing the clients he would want to represent. This is why it is imperative you explain everything truthfully. This will help both of you determine if you have found the right lawyer-client match in each other.

You are also not expected to make a decision to avail of the lawyer’s services immediately after your first meeting. Feel free to take a day or two to make that important decision. Choosing who will represent you is crucial. Thus, you must not feel pressured to making a decision when you’re not yet ready to make one. You should, however, also take into consideration that you do not have all the time in the world as cases like this have schedules and deadlines to meet.

Is it OK to schedule several consultative meetings with different lawyers? Yes, of course. Consider it window shopping. This is extremely important so take your time and do what is right for you.
