Find an Attorney Specializing in Admiralty and Maritime Law


How to Select an Admiralty and Martime Attorney

The process can get quite complicated and there are a lot of laws governing this process, so it is vitally important that a person has a good and very knowledgeable attorney. In our discussion today, we will give you some tips on how to find a good Admiralty and Maritime.

Tip #1 Find a lawyer in your state

Admiralty and Maritimes vary from state to state. For this reason alone it is very important for you to look for a lawyer that lives in the state that you live in or in the state that you are going to file. If you are now living in a different state than the state that you are going to file in, then you want to find an attorney in that state.

Tip #2 Make a list

Start a list of prospective lawyers. This list will come from several different resources and we will discuss the different resources, but it is important to start a list.

Tip #3 Start off with personal references

If you are getting ready to go through this process, talk to your family and friends and see if they might be able to recommend a reputable Amiralty and Maritime lawyer. You want to make sure that they understand that it is not just any lawyer. You must let them know that you are specifically looking for a Admiralty and Maritime.

Tip #4 Resources for Admiralty and Martime lawyers

Do your due diligence by doing a search for Admiralty and Maritime in your state and your city. If you find an attorney that you are interested in, look for testimonials from other clients. You also want to look for information about the law firm that the lawyer is associated with.

You can contact the various bar associations, both state and local in your search for a good Admiralty and Maritime attorney. You can get recommendations from other lawyers or even the person that prepares your taxes. By this time you should have a list of names with their phone numbers. Now is the time for you to start contacting the lawyers so that you can start narrowing down your list.

Tip #5 Contact your list of names

The first thing that you should do to narrow your list down is to call each attorney that you are interested in talking to. Once you have the list of who you want to talk to there are some questions that you need to get answers from. The list is included below:

What Admiralty and Maritime experience do you have?

How many Admiralty and Maritime cases have you litigated?

Do you have any Admiralty and Martime certifications or extra training?

How many cases do you usually handle on a monthly basis?

How many Accidental cases are personal vs. business cases?

Will you be handling my case or will you have an assistant handle the case?

If an assistant is working on my case, will I be able to talk with that person?

How does the Admiralty and Maritime process work?

Does the lawyer offer free consultations?

You may be wondering what to look for when getting the answers to these questions. Remember that you want someone who is experienced, has handled a lot of cases and is comfortable and familiar with the Admiralty and Maritime and processes. You want to be comfortable with the lawyer and want someone who is personable and can give you the answers that you are looking for.

You can get your answers over the phone, but make sure that you also meet the prospective lawyer in person before you sign anything or agree to anything. You want to make sure that there is a rapport between you and the lawyer as well as anyone else in the law firm that you will be dealing with.

Tip #6 Get everything in written form

Make sure that everything that you have discussed is written down. Get a written copy of all of the fees, policies and procedures. If you are not sure of a certain fee, make sure that you ask.

Tip #7 Stay in contact with your Attorney

Once you have hired your lawyer, stay in touch with him. Remember that he is working for you, and is handling some very important business for you so you want to always stay in touch so that you know what is going on with your case. This same lawyer may also work with you in an advising capacity as he can help you as you complete your case.

In our discussion, we have offered several tips that will help you as you learn how to select an Admiralty and Maritime lawyer for your Admiralty and Maritime Law needs. Be sure not to rush into the hiring of an attorney and that you take time to evaluate the answers to your questions.
