Elizabeth Turner Law, LLC
Elizabeth is by far the best attorney I have ever met! Not only is she professional and courteous she does a wonderful job in getting you a great deal. This was the very first time I ever got into any trouble, and Elizabeth was so helpful the entire time! Anytime I called she took the time to talk with me and never made me feel like I was a nuisance to her. I refer all of my friends to Elizabeth now, there isn't any other attorney I would go to.

Law Office of David Meyer
David Meyer is much more than just a competent attorney...he is patient and a good listener as well. No divorce process is pleasant when the exes can't seem to agree...but I must say that David made it a lot easier and took the time to explain how things work. I will recommend him to anyone I find that needs an excellent attorney. I was not made to feel like a client or a number by David..he always treated me like a friend.

Law Office of David Meyer
I tell everyone I know that David Meyer is an excellent Guardian Ad Litem. He is very pleasant to work with, and is very thorough with the children he has involvement with in terms of making decisions based on their best interest. He likes to be aware of any details with the cases he is on, which I feel is absolutely imparitive when making decisions regarding the best interest of a child and or family.

Shannon McKinney, Attorney at Law, LLC
Shannon was great to work with. She was always available and listened to what I had to say. She worked with me to make sure I got the best possible representation and after a year of court dates, etc... won my relocation (out of state) case, when no one thought we could! She is awesome and I would highly recommend her.

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.
