We hired Joe to represent our son for some traffic violations. He seemed to understand the system and how it worked. It ended up not to be the case. Save your money and heartache. Not a good choice.

I just want to thank you for all that you have done for my family. My father spoke of you often. I truly believe that he thought of you as a friend and not just his attorney. You stuck by him when many others did not. I know that he is truly grateful for all of your hard work. When he went into the hospital, he told my mom that if anything happened to him to "call Sweat Law Offices. Mr. Sweat will help you." Well, you did just that and we can't thank you enough.

Sweat Law Offices is one of the most conscientious and kind attorneys that I have met – both professionally and personally. I have met many over the years, including those who have been "Top Rated" by various organizations by their clients, and/or peers – and I can say that Mr. Sweat trumps those as well – a perfect example being that he put more time and effort into my matter in mere months than my previous attorneys did in over 2 years. His attentiveness in responding to communication from his client's is also superior. In closing, I recommend Sweat Law Offices to anyone in need of legal services.

I came to Sweat Law due to a personal injury. They walked me through the process and determined I did not have a case. I was not too happy but I trusted their judgment. As it was, I am glad I heeded what they said because it kept me from much more trouble down the road.

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.
