I want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate what you have done for my parents as their Attorney. You were the steady sail in the storm. When all around you were emotional and sometimes rash, you steadily evaluated the situation and provided sound accurate legal advice. This is an experience I would not wish on anyone. You deal with these kind of events each and everyday, with the utmost confidence, your constitution is admirable. Your experience, knowledge, and unwavering advice was invaluable.Thank you again.

We hired Cheri about 2 years ago for the adoption of our oldest little girl. Cheri kept in constant contact with us throughout the process and made sure that we felt like we were part of the process. Our paperwork was filed correctly the first time and we were able to expedite the final hearings. We thought she did such a great job handling the first case that we hired her for our second adoption. Things went just as smooth and we highly recommend her services, especially if you need an attorney willing to fight for you.

These two are top notch! Not only are they extremely professional, they are very kind. At no point will they make you feel belittled or lower than them like other lawyers will. They handle all situations with delicacy and expertise. They have also been very willing to work with me in times of struggle and haven't changed their approach do to this. I will always use Carter & Putnam, just as the rest of my family does!

These guys were amazing. I had been waiting for close to a year to receive my settlement from a serious accident I was in, and Altieri Gilmore and her team were able to finalize a generous settlement after only a few weeks! Many thanks to Altieri Gilmore for their swift and hard work!

They have been handling my daughter's traffic ticket and have done a great job so far. It's not quite completed but I don't anticipate any problems before it's done. They saved her from having stipulations for another year and us from increased insurance premiums. Thanks 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.
