Stephen P Shepard Law Office
Mr. Shepard is an awesome attorney! When I first was charged with theft, I was scared of what could happen to me. I called Mr. Shepard's office and he saw me on a Saturday for a free consultation. Speaking with him immediately put my nerves at ease. He was knowledgeable, compassionate, asked the right questions, and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I hired Mr. Shepard on the spot. Prior to my court date, Mr. Shepard kept me informed about my case and never left me in the dark. On my court date, my case ended up going to trial and it was clear that Mr. Shepard had done his homework and was well prepared because we won. I cannot thank Mr. Shepard enough for all he did to help me and I highly recommend him.

Law Offices of G. Randolph Rice, Jr.
Recently had a case in Essex, and a friend referred me to G. Randolph Rice Jr. with a strong recommendation; and he was so very correct! Mr. Rice was very professional, truly caring and trustworthy. He said what he can do, and did exactly what he said... might think it's rare to find an attorney with real integrity and if that's the case go to Mr. Rice. No better advocate for real people and the legal problem you face. Mr. Rice was recomended to me with full confidence and I'll recommend him to anyone with the same, 100% confidence. #RealTalk

Mr. Karceski is an amazing lawyer. If you have the means to spend and extra little money it is 100% worth every penny. As soon as I had met and talked to him at the first free consultation I knew he was the right lawyer. If you want to stay out of jail he's the one for you! He is very nice, the girls in the office are very nice and they all make you feel extremely comfortable. I would highly reccomend him to anyone and everyone!

Terlep Susan H
Susan is an excellent lawyer. She is knowledgeable, compassionate and honest. When I found out that my wife wanted to divorce me I hired Susan and that's probably the reason why now I still have a roof over my head and did have to change drastically my life style. I would recommend her highly.

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.
