The Savvy Career Woman’s Guide To Hiring A Lawyer

Do your research

Hiring a lawyer is a major thing and you need to do some of the work too. Jacqueline Newman, a managing partner at a New York City law firm, told The Grindstone: “When you are researching a law firm, you should also look at who the associates are and do not just research the partner. Often partners will involve their associates in your case (with the goal of keeping fees down), so you want to know about not only the partner handling your case but the other people who you will be working with as well.”
