Go in with the right questions
Attorney Matthew Kamula says Making sure that you have your questions, as many as you can think of, written down and in summary form to present to the attorney is important.
Sarah Feingold, the in house attorney for Etsy and a jeweler, told The Grindstone: “Do your own research and ask questions. Ask for the lawyer’s credentials. Has the lawyer done similar work in the past? What are the lawyer’s rates? Are they negotiable? Can you get a flat fee arrangement? How long will this project potentially take? Don’t just hire any ol’ lawyer. Talk to the lawyer first. What does your gut say? Do you think that the lawyer’s vision aligns with yours?”
