We retained the sevices of Arrowood law firm late in the legal process concerning guardianship of an elderly friend, so time was of the essence,.There was a mound of legal documents to wade through. Mr Arrowood and his staff quickly go up to speed understanding the sense of urgency of his client abtaining legal counsel on such short notice, not only was he supportive, knowledgeable, and professional, he provided information of the legal process she was facing, encouraged her input and listen to what she had to say. When we went to trial attorney Arrowood not only came in prepared but his experience as trial lawyer really came through on cross examination. The office staff whom are responsive, and were genuinely concerned about there client made us feel comfortable and hopeful from the first day that we walked into the office. Our family and friends are truly grateful and sincerely want to thank Mr Arrowood and his office staff for an excellent job. God Bless You! Michael Flynn

There are so many positive adjectives I could use to describe Mr. Lathem. Although, he has only counseled me a few times in the past he has proven to be very knowledgeable and passionate about his job. He offered many options and gave me great insight toward how he would handle my case, if I chose that route and would need his services. One thing I do know about Mr. Lathem is he's very straight forward with his answers to your questions and if it's something he can’t handle he is honest about the situation at hand. It's hard to find an individual who shows more integrity, honesty, warmth, and genuine concern towards his clients in this type of career field. The best endorsement I can give; is that I would not hesitate to use his services in the future (if needed) or recommend him to a friend (or even a perfect stranger.)

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 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.
