Besserman Law Office
I hired Besserman Law office after I had my last lawyer left me at the last-minute right before trial. I read reviews and had a few consultations and felt like this Law office was right for me. Right away she had an uphill fight on her hands and she was more then up to the challenge. She worked relentlessly to get caught up and to try and turn things around. Within no time, she was caught up and helping me answer questions I had had from the start. She was always a straight shooter and never sugarcoated things. She always kept me involved in what she and I needed to do to move things ahead. Mostly she always made sure I understood what was going on since this was my first time in court ever. In the end, she ended a 1 year battle in about 2 months of her working on it. In doing so she went above and beyond what I expected. She never backed down even with the odds against her. Most importantly she tried to put the kids in this case first and not her pocket book. Doing things in the fastest way she could and in the best quality she could. Finally, she will always come highly recommended by me and people in my family that had to hear my stories. I can only hope that she will always be my go-to lawyer if I ever need to go back for anything else. I am truly Grateful for all she has done for me and I could not have wished for a better lawyer.

Ms. Besserman definitely is a class act. She shows compassion for her clients and works diligently to obtain the results her clients are hoping for. We couldn't have asked for a better attorney to represent our family. Ms. Besserman never gives up and fights for what she knows is right. Her honesty is refreshing. You can definitely tell she loves her work.

I'm a student and I asked my university to recommend an attorney. They sent me to Mr. Orsey, saying that they have been recommending him for years and they have never had a complaint. They were right, I couldn't have asked for a more professional personalized service. I highly recommend him.

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.
