The initial consultation is mesothelioma attorney's opportunity to explain what he or she can do for you and how much it will cost. You should not hesitate to ask about attorney's experience in handling previous mesothelioma lawsuits.
Feel free to ask about lawyer's fees and likely results. If you are considering going beyond initial consultation and hiring lawyer, request a written fee agreement before proceeding.
It is also important to ask each attorney for a list of references that you may contact.
4. Making Your Decision
After each initial consultation, ask yourself following questions about mesothelioma attorney you just met:
-Did attorney listen to me? -Was attorney knowledgeable about asbestos law? -Did attorney give me a firm understanding of my alternative courses of action? -Do I understand range of possible results associated with each course of action? -Did attorney seem trustworthy?
If need be, take notes after each consultation, indicating your initial reaction to mesothelioma attorney you have just met.
