When it comes to choosing the right sexual harassment attorney we at The Okorocha Firm understand how confusing it can get. In Los Angeles, sexual harassment attorneys are generally quite common to source, but finding one who actually understands you and your unique situation often requires a lot of “shopping around”.
There are many ways you can source Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys, from checking the attorney public records, going through a certified lawyer referral service, contacting free legal aid agencies, to receiving recommendations from friends and family, or even following up on advertisements you come across. While all these methods are great ways of sourcing Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys, you still have to find one that you feel comfortable working with.
The first step to choosing the right sexual harassment attorney is to do what is called “comparison shopping”. What this entails is you making a list of the Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys you would like to contact. Once you have made this list call each attorney and find out if they are willing to meet with you to briefly discuss your situation. Often Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys will prefer to meet in person, but just make sure to find out whether your initial consultation will be free or not before you agree to a meeting.
The next step is your initial consultation with the Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys you have contacted. When you attend this meeting make sure you are prepared to provide the attorney with the correct yet concise information about your situation – bring all the relevant information about anyone connected to your case as well as any important and documents. Also make sure that you are able to garner enough information to help you in making your final decision through asking important questions. Find out what experience the lawyer has and if they have handled any cases similar to yours. Discuss whether the attorney you are speaking to will handle your case directly or if they intend having another member of their team handle your case (in this case it would be a good idea to meet with this attorney too). Make sure you write everything down so that when you finally do compare the various Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys you have met with, you are able to make an informed decision.
The final step to choosing the right Los Angeles sexual harassment attorney is to evaluate your initial consultations. At this point it is important to ask yourself a few questions, such as: does the attorney have the experience and skill you are looking for in order to handle your case? Was the attorney able to clearly explain what your case will involve to you? Were their fees reasonable? Most importantly – do you feel comfortable working closely with this attorney?
If you confidently answer yes to these questions then you can rest assured that you probably have found the right attorney for you. If you are still struggling to sort through Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys give The Okorocha Firm a call today to see how we can help you.
