How To Choose The Right Attorney For You?
You’re likely thinking “can I work with this firm?” Here’s also something else you need to think about: How would you know that I’m actually the right counsel for you?
How would you know if this attorney, called Aida Dismondy, is the right person to solve the problem you have right now and one you can work with? Can I trust her?
Because here are a few ways I can help you: if you’re facing an ITAR or an EAR problem, or a contract or subcontract problem, if you are facing litigations left and right, if you’re worried something went wrong and you need to nip it in the bud, I’m here to advise, counsel, and advocate for you. Yet, my ability to help you will not determine, if I am the right counsel for you or that you can trust me.
The decision rests with you. At the core of our business is the relationship we build and keep with our clients and community. Trust is fundamental in every relationship and in the relationships we as a firm build with our clients, it is also fundamental when our clients choose us. It should be also important to you when choosing an advisor.
The questions then are: How can you choose an advisor you can trust? What do you know about them? Have you talked with them to get a feel for who this person is? Once you’ve gotten a feel for them, once you’ve given it some thought, what is your next step? How would you know you are making the right decision? If you want to test the waters, is there a small project you have that could give you further insight on what it is like to work with this person?
Also, something else to consider: have you been in a situation where you took someone else’s word and decided to work with someone they recommended. How did it turn out? Did it work? Were you disappointed? Satisfied?
Whether it’s an attorney we’re looking for or a doctor, or a CPA three questions are key in decision making: What am I looking for? Who do I prefer to work with? Can I trust them? Because any of us can be the best at what we do, and we can shout self-accolades from the mountain top, but if we’re not what someone is looking for and who they are looking for, and if that person cannot trust us, then we cannot be for them. Equally, if I don’t fit what you’re looking for and who you’re looking to work with, and you cannot trust me, then I’m not for you. So, we both save each other time by not dancing around an important decision.
You now have some questions to think through to make the right decision for you in choosing the attorney that you’re looking for, one you can work with, and more importantly, one you can trust.
