Goad James E Attorney At Law
Choosing a divorce lawyer was a big decision for me. I needed an attorney that could handle a very difficult divorce with contested child custody. I knew the odds were against me and after speaking to a lot of attorneys I decided that James Goad had the desire, skill, and local knowledge necessary to do the job correctly and since you only have one chance to make that decision I'm thankful I was right. James was always available and responsive and I will always be indebted to him for utilizing his skills to help me attain custody of my son. If you are about to get an attorney in Cartersville you can't do wrong giving James a call.

My hand was crushed and I lost a finger due to an on the job injury. I contacted White & Choate and spoke with Jay Choate. He was up front with me by telling me that this would be a long process but I would receive the benefits and compensation that I was entitled to. Jay personally kept me informed and was in constant contact with me to keep me updated on my claim. He made sure I received the medical treatment I needed and also the settlement I was entitled to. Great firm, honest attorney. Jay and Pam, his assistant went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Goad James E Attorney At Law
James represented me through a tough divorce and custody battle. I looked around and other attorneys in Cartersville gave me little chance to get full custody of my then 4 year old son but through James representation I was awarded full custody. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend James and his staff.

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.
