BCG Attorney Search
My friend, who had just secured a job referred BCG Attorney Search to me. The time I spent on the site was good as I learned something new every day and ended up getting a job that I like.

Mr. Andrews is always available to answer questions or concerns regarding his clients. He offers good advice that if followed will not steer you wrong. His prices are also affordable for the services offered. He has been my lawyer for 30 years.

Not a good experience. Should have gone elsewhere. Very disappointing. Always google any business before contacting them. Learn from my mistake. I lost a lot of money in the process too. I would recommend a background check too. She also published fabricated lies on the internet about me too. A lawyer not to be recommended by me.

Not the attorney to use if you are facing jail or prison time. Not that experience and no defense or planning at all. Cheap is the only good thing. But you get what you pay for. I do not recommend at all.Don't pay in full either

BCG Attorney Search
Just when I started to doubt my career choice and whether being an attorney was a good option, I came across BCG Attorney Search. Brilliant setup and an even better recruiter in Nadeen!

Robins & Cloud LLP
My Father Passed away from Mesothelioma in 1999,Hired this Law firm in mid 1999 and here it is Late 2017 and still ongoing.Took over 6 years to even get 1 settlement offer and its Pennies on the Dollar and This Firm has even had the audacity to even tell me "Take it or Leave it". Once hired,You will never speak to the Lawyer again and you will be referred to the Paralegal and they will never answer and it only goes to Voicemail and you will never get a return call back.They will tell you exactly what you want to hear until hired, Then they will only work for themselves and not for you.This Firm is to be avoided by all means,too late for me but hopefully it can save someone else the time & heartache.

Bergquist Law Firm
Bergquist Law Firm is a firm of many talents. I retained Mr. Bergquist for a car accident I had and was very well compensated. I was very pleased with my settlement, Mr. Bergquist has a very good team and know that it is literally ALL hands on deck as they all work together. I have referred several people for different issues, contracts, lawsuits, business related problems, and just questions in general...he always seems to come through.

Andrews Golub Atty
Mr G walked into the room with his credit card processor in his hand, very tacky. After making sure we signed the forms acknowledging his very high fee per hour to hear what we would like his help with, he started going on and on about what a judge would say in court. I repeatedly told him, we had no interest in going to court, we were simply looking for mediation. Realizing this may not be worth his time, he advised to do nothing. When he saw that I was ready to leave after this and he had only talked for 30 mins of the 90 he charged us for, he asked us to wait while he went to his office to google some things. Still not giving us any advice of value we left. I went home and did some googling myself and within 10 mins knew more than I had learned from him. Save your money!
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.
