TOP 5 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN HIRING A LAWYER

In situations involving simple tasks, individuals or companies may choose to handle small matters on their own.  However, in more complicated matters, HKQ Law Attorney Michelle Quinn cautions against going it alone: “A thorough understanding of nuances of the law and the intricacies of legal procedures is essential to achieving your goal.” That makes the services of an attorney indispensable.  So how do you find an attorney best suited for your legal needs?  Look for these important attributes:

1.     Experience

Experience is usually helpful in most endeavors. For a lawyer, it is critical. Ensuring financial security for accident victims and their families, representing those that are victims of medical wrongdoing, protecting the assets that a person has worked so long and hard for, and helping businesses thrive by guiding them through ever-evolving laws and regulations -- the stakes are high. The attorneys at HKQ Law have the credentials you need to get results.

2.     Expertise

When you need an attorney, you have a specific legal need. You’re best served by an attorney who is well versed in the area of law which involves that need. Through our Personal Injury, Business Law and Personal Law teams, HKQ Law provides specialized legal expertise in a variety of areas. From personal injury to medical malpractice litigation; commercial litigation to construction accidents; eminent domain to employment law; trusts to telecommunications; and wills to worker’s compensation, HKQ Law is your legal source.

3.     Resources

Look for a law firm that has the fiscal strength to provide their clients with expert resources. HKQ Law attorneys draw on the knowledge and experience of their expansive internal team and their impressive roster of highly-specialized experts, bringing more research, technological and detailed testimony to represent your case.

4.     Integrity

At HKQ Law, integrity is of utmost importance. Integrity means being honest and morally responsible to clients and potential clients while providing quality legal services at a fair cost. We hold the entire team to only the highest and most consistent standards, every single day.

5.     Dedication

Achieving the best results takes more than knowledge - it requires hard work. At HKQ Law, you’ll find a team of hard-working people. “No one works harder for you than HKQ Law” is more than just a slogan. It’s our guiding principle.

How You Can Assist and Advocate

If you choose to hire an attorney, you can still be very involved in your case.  Preparation and note-taking is imperative. Carry a notebook and a pen. Record names, dates and any specific details. Use your cell phone to document if possible. Take photos.

For example, if you’ve been injured in a car accident, take photos of the area if you can safely do so. Write down names, including any witnesses, insurance company names and numbers, names of officers, address of the accident location, times and dates. To help you to remember what you should record, click here to receive your copy of the “After an Accident” card to keep in your glovebox. Should you need it, it will be available as a reference. 

To gather information for a potential medical malpractice claim, take detailed notes at your visit to the doctor and/or the hospital, including the names of doctors, nurses or any specialists that might be involved in your care. Include dates and times. You may also want to obtain your medical records.

If you’re a business owner, make sure to maintain comprehensive and up-to-date records for any future legal requirements such as meeting notes, licenses and policies, employee details, etc.
