As a legal practitioner or lawyer for almost twenty years, it did not cross my mind if there were tips on choosing an advocate/lawyer. This is, of course, at least because in my mind, that the profession of an advocate is a respectable profession (officium nobile). As a respectable profession, of course there should be no tips on choosing and using the services of a lawyer/advocate. But for some reason, I thought there are tips for choosing an advocate, an unusual thought for an advocate/lawyer. This is of course, because a lawyer of course the focus is on the legal issues of the clients he handles.
In between free time and freeing my mind and attention from the legal case/problem that is being handled, the matter of tips on choosing an advocate continues to disturb my mind, even though it feels odd and doesn’t make sense for an advocate to think about such tips. It might be different for a mechanic to give tips on choosing a good repair shop, or shopping tips at the mall and the like.
The question of how to choose an advocate/lawyer continues to be a fruit of my mind and I imagine myself as a person who is not an advocate. What is a person’s consideration before making his choice of a lawyer? For reference you can use law service from Employment Lawyer Los Angeles.
As stated above, I have almost never heard of any tips for choosing and using the services of an advocate/lawyer (perhaps because I am an advocate), in fact what is often discussed is about professional ethics. To answer my curiosity, of course, it is quite impossible to ask a fellow lawyer, because it is the same as talking about yourself. For a lawyer, it is usually the one who thinks about working and solving his client’s legal problems and it is also not possible to give tips for himself. Besides being potentially subjective, it is also unethical if a lawyer gives tips to the public on how to choose a lawyer. It is different if the tips are given by people outside those who are advocates.
The process of selecting an Advocate/Lawyer according to their legal needs is almost the same as the process of selecting a Doctor, Accountant, Notary, Architect and other professional workers. Of course, by ensuring professionalism in their work, an advocate/lawyer must be able to provide the best service for clients, so that clients can assess and believe in the quality of work of the advocate/lawyer. Clients need to be careful and thorough in choosing and determining Advocates/Lawyers to handle their legal affairs. In order not to be mistaken in choosing the required Advocate/Lawyer
