How should I proceed if I know which attorney I want to hire?

Michael Geary answers:

Give the attorney a call. Many attorneys will speak with you by phone to discuss the basic aspects of your case before you come in for an appointment. Ask your attorney if there is a fee for a consultation. Before you schedule an appointment, ask the prospective attorney what type of law he/she practices, length of time licensed, his/her hourly rate and his/ her experience in family law. If you are looking for a family law attorney, experience in handling family law cases should be a priority over experience in handling “general” matters. Before your appointment, make a list of questions you would like the attorney to address during your meeting.
