Slater James L Atty
I retained Attorney Slater for a personal injury case involving a car accident, because as anyone who has been in an accident knows, dealing with medical bills and insurance companies can be overwhelming. Mr. Slater took ALL that worry from me. From the moment I retained him he went to work on my behalf, making sure every base was covered. I had worried that this case would drag on for years, but my case was settled in only 9 months with the best possible outcome. Both Mr. Slater and his paralegal were there for me when I needed them most. If god forbid I am ever involved in another car accident, he's going to be my first phone call.

Wendi L Hall-Gonzales PA
If there were ten stars, I would give them to her. I came to Wendi with a very complicated case and she was compassionate, helpful and honest. Despite the difficulty of the case, she would not give up, and after many hard months she was able to resolve my issues and concerns. Her honesty and perseverance make her the most outstanding lawyer out there. I would refer anyone in need to her in a heartbeat.

The Fran Haasch Law Group
Fran and her team represented me for a motorcycle accident. They did an awesome job and got me a great settlement. I've seen Fran's smiling face at the bike events over the years and she was the first person I thought of calling after the wreck. She was always available to answer any questions and explained everything to me real good without a lot of lawyer talk. Fran and her staff are good people.

Attorneys at this office know their stuff. So many people offer up bad advice, it's nice to be able to count on sound legal advice. I have used the attorneys at this office multiple times now.

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.
