Alan D Mclemore Attorney At Law
Alan is an outstanding lawyer who stands above the rest in three key areas: #1 Honesty #2 Reliability #3 Experience...I checked around and did my homework on several Law firms...they were expensive, apathetic to my case, and b.s.ed me on what they could or couldn't do. After talking to Alan, I knew what my options were, how much it would cost , (who by the way saved me thousands over the other law firms) and that my case was winnable. He got right on it and he never lied to me or charged me money for something he didn't do!!! Best of all...do to his experience we won the case!!!...thanks Alan...pm

Getz Michael D
Mr. Getz paid particular attention to our case and gave his upmost attention each time he talked to us about anything. His demeanor both professionally and personally exceeds anything I expected from an attorney. When we went to trial, he showed his professionalism and knowledge of the law each time he cross examined or explained his points to the judge. I highly recommend Mr. Getz to anyone needing a lawyer. By the way, we used Getz as a family law attorney and he helped us through the emotions that commonly get escalated in these type of affairs.

Suzanne Schaper Law Firm
Although no time in court could be fun, Ms. Schaper made sure that all the legal proceedings were as painless as possible. It was always pleasant to go speak with her at her office and the entirety of her staff knew me by name and always made me feel welcome. Ms. Schaper handled all the details of my case with professionalism. She understands how emotionally delicate legal matters can be, so she always had my best interest at heart when representing me in the courtroom.

Suzanne took perfect care of me and Christie was great. Explained everything extremely thoroughly to me from the beginning and even tried to help the Ex with the processing and how everything was going to work. When it turned ugly, she was there to support and help me and handled everything very professionally in a situation where emotions were at an extreme high. Highly recommend anyone that is in a tough situation to seek their help.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
