Getting the Most Out of Your Lawyer
Need Professional Help? Talk to a Lawyer.
In addition to finding competent and conscientious lawyers in the first place, your best approach is to pay the lawyer based on work produced, not an up-front retainer. A pay-as-you-go approach will give your lawyer an incentive to keep hustling and make it easier for you to politely but firmly fire the lawyer if you decide to end your relationship—something you have the right to do at any time.
