Nunn, Ken, JD
I've worked with a lot of lawyers in a lot of different states (Virginia, DC, Florida, Indiana) and these guys were by far the best! Being a smaller woman, I'm constantly talked down to, especially by my lawyers or doctors. I was so pleased when Ken Nunn's Law Office actually treated me like an adult. It doesn't sound like much, and I know people don't want to admit that this kind of sexism still exists but it does. And believe me, this was the best first impression I could ever have had. Not only that, but they're super communicative. They call often and if they have to leave a message, they always leave the time and date in the message. Also something I'd never seen before. Overall, highly recommended.

Mary Higdon is a great lawyer. In the middle of my case, we were hit with a surprise from another county and Mary was very efficient in taking care of me and the situation. If I ever need a lawyer again, I will call her for sure and I would recommend her to anyone. She kept me informed every step of the way and was very fair with prices as well. Glad I decided to go with her.

Mary Higdon is a great attorney and an even better person. She was very helpful and kind throughout the duration of my case. Even after the trial was over she responded to my emails and my questions very fast. She was knowledgeable, trustworthy, and responsible. I'd recommend her to anyone.

When I was working with Mary she always found time to talk to me, no matter how often I had questions. She returned my calls promptly and took the time to answer those questions thoroughly. I appreciate her always listening. She always got the job done.

I called a different lawyer before I called Mary Higdon, and they never called me back. That is how I ended up working with her. However, I am glad I did. She and her staff were great.

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.
