Things To Think About When Selecting A Florida Attorney


If you go looking for legal representation in Florida, you will find that there are nearly 100,000 active members of the Florida bar. In 2009, almost 3,000 individuals passed the bar exam in the state of Florida to be admitted as qualified practitioners of law.

Since there are so many attorneys out there, it can be a challenge to select the one who will be best able to provide you with the services you need. You have probably seen advertisements on television, heard them on the radio, and even seen them on benches and buses.

When looking for a Florida attorney, here’s what you need to know:

  • Your Attorney Should Focus On The Specific Area Of Law That Is Of Concern To You
    One of the key reasons why there are “so many” attorneys out there — not just in Florida, but all over the United States — is because there are so many different areas of law in which someone could practice. Each area of the law is unique and requires specific knowledge.When you are choosing an attorney, always select one that has personally overseen successful cases similar to yours. In personal injury cases, for example, your prospective attorney should be able to demonstrate that he or she has won awards from negligent parties in court.
  • Your Attorney Should Have Many Years Of Experience In The State Of Florida
    Generally speaking, those who have graduated from an accredited school of law are invited to practice anywhere in the United States where they can successfully pass the bar exam. This is no substitute, however, for in-depth knowledge and experience within the jurisdiction.While perspective is valuable, the majority of your attorney’s experience should come from the state of Florida — whether or not he or she originally went to law school within the state. State laws can make a tremendous difference when pursuing your case.
  • Your Attorney Should Have The Personal Traits Needed To Pursue Your Case Successfully
    In any case where you must deal with an insurance company — whether it is your own or someone else’s — it’s critical that you choose an aggressive attorney. Many attorneys are unwilling to bring cases to trial, which makes it difficult to get the best agreement possible from money-conscious insurers.

Something else to keep in mind is that you need to be able to work with your attorney for the long haul. While it is impossible to explain every detail of a legal case to a client, an attorney should be willing to provide enough information to give you the sense of well-being you need.

If you don’t feel that an attorney will provide you with complete answers and the information you need, you may wish to seek other legal counsel. Not every law firm is prepared to provide the level of personalized service that you should expect.
