Selecting an Attorney to Help you Fight a Collection Case
Choosing a lawyer is not as easy as leafing through a Yellow Pages. One must consider a lot of variables when selecting an attorney to represent you in a collection matter. Whether the lawsuit is for a past due credit card or a medical bill, a repossessed car or a student loan having someone experienced in you corner is very important.
One of the best ways is to get a referral from a friend, but sometimes it may be difficult to ask a friend about a lawyer. You may not want them to know that you are getting sued. So another good way is to use a referral service like one provided by the Bar Association. You may also look into some online services, such as Lawyers.com. Regardless, be sure to do your best and find real reviews of attorney, not just testimonials posted on the personal websites.
Once you have two or three in mind, start the interview process. Call the lawyers and ask as many questions about their practice as you can. Be sure to talk about your case and get a feel for how well they understand your predicament from a legal perspective. Of course these methods are not foolproof, but at least you will get a sense of who you are dealing with.
In the meantime, be sure to answer your summons within the allowed time by the court. This will give you more time to interview and find a better lawyer to assist you in your litigation. Naturally, if you find someone in time, the attorney may respond to your lawsuit themselves.
