What Experience Does The Attorney Have In This Area Of The Law?
Once an attorney graduates from law school and passes the state bar examination, that attorney can provide services for clients in virtually any area of the law. Basically, there are two types of lawyers. First, is the transactional attorney. This is an attorney that provides counsel and performs services for the client, but rarely, if ever, goes to court to conduct trials and hearings. The other type is the litigation attorney. Litigators also provide counsel and provide services to the client, but the litigation attorney usually is in court daily, conducting hearings, arguing motions and taking matters to trial. With either type, generally, the longer that an attorney has practiced the more knowledgeable and experienced they tend to be. At FOXSCOTTLAW we are litigators. We regularly appear daily in the local courts of Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Chances are highly likely, that we have tried many cases before the judge or magistrate assigned to your case.
Ask your prospective attorney about their experience. What is that attorney’s reputation with the local bar? How many cases like yours has that attorney handled in the past? Has that attorney conducted cases against the opposing counsel before? Do other attorneys seek help and advice from your prospective attorney?
