Huggins, J Steven, JD
Me and my sister were referred to Steve Huggins by another attorney when we were seeking advice for our fathers affairs. We were lucky to come across a man of intengrity and truth which reassured our thoughts and concept of attorneys. Attorney Huggins not only recommended that his services weren't needed for our case but took the time out to listen to our concerns after the assessment was made. He is definitely recommended and will be used by our family if and/or when services are needed. I gladly suggest anyone who is seeking an attorney that will work in "your" best interest(s) contact Steve Huggins. Thanks again for your assistance and knowledge for relieving some stress off of our family.

Lane Law Firm
I was a witness in a case, where Mr. Lane represented a defendant, I knew. I found him to be professional, organized and a true credit to his profession. Mr. Lane is to be commended in handling of a very hostile plaintiff and had more grace under pressure than other lawyers that I have dealt with in the past. If I ever find myself in need of a lawyer, I will run not walk to his firm and know that my case will be handled with the utmost professionalism and quality that anyone could ask for.

We hired Ryan in October 2012 and we just finished our case... He was absolutely the best attorney for our custody case! He was knowledgeable, trustworthy, and worked extremely hard for us! We will recommend him to everyone and will use him in the future if we ever have the need for another attorney! Thanks for all you did to keep our family together!!!

Murray-Boyles, Yvonne, JD
I am very confident in her abilities to protect my rights. It was a difficult decision to seek out an attorney in a different state, but through the knowledge of others, she came highly recommended to me. She made me feel as if her only concern was to take care of my needs in a professional manner.

The Strom Law Firm worked with me on a law suit against Bank of America. Although we did not win the case they still secured a nice settlement for me. The lawyers andstaff are prompt and courteous when dealing with clients on the phone and in person.I can strongly recommend this firm.

I was referred to this office for a divorce after consulting with other offices. I felt comfortable from the first meeting. Felt like a fit. They handled the case with my best interest, and provided a final result which was beneficial to me. Would recommend this firm to others.

I have used two of these attorneys for two different cases. Attorney Shirley and Attorney Callas would be the people you want fighting for you. I highly recommend if you are looking to get what you deserve. I love these guys!!!

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.
