Hiring an attorney should never be taken lightly and just because someone has a license to practice law doesn’t mean they are the right attorney for your situation.
Unfortunately, real estate, along with estate planning, are areas of practice where a lot of attorneys try to handle a transaction without having a lot of experience in that particular area of the law. If I were to ever hire an attorney I would be certain that the attorney I am hiring spends most of their time practicing in that area of law. You wouldn’t go to a foot doctor if you had a heart problem, would you?
So, how do you know if you are choosing the right attorney for your problem? Here are a few questions to consider when you are looking to hire a real estate attorney:
- How many transactions like mine have you handled?
- What is your billing process?
- Who else will be working on my transaction?
- Are you up to date on all the local laws and requirements?
If you are looking for a new real estate attorney please contact me and I can answer any questions you might have. And don’t worry, I limit my practice to only three areas of law: real estate, estate planning, and probate. Trust me, if I do not feel that I would be the best attorney for your situation, I have numerous referral sources that can help.
