If you are in the terrible situation of needing a personal injury attorney on your side, there are a few key characteristics you should be looking for in the attorneys you consult with. While it is vital that you feel comfortable with your attorney, there are several other things you should look for.
Your attorney should conduct him or herself with the utmost professionalism. He or she should be considered well-respected and in good standing with the bar association of Utah. Your attorney should have the time in his or her schedule to take on your case and give it the attention it deserves.
Your attorney needs to be available to you, as his or her client, and opposing counsel. Your attorney should have a competent and helpful staff who can assist you with any questions or concerns you may have about your case.
You must be able to trust your attorney. Even if your attorney has news that may be unpleasant for you to hear, your attorney must be frank and honest with you.
