HIRING THE BEST ATTORNEY
|Posted by Gladys Brierley on January 4, 2012 at 6:30 PM|
There are attorneys out there that will take your money, do just enough to say they represented you, and you will end up losing your case, your children, assets and or freedom.
The best attorneys are those who welcome a reference check, are willing to give you a free consultation and listen to your concerns. They are also willing to be honest with you before you pay them as to what type of battle you are facing. The best lawyers will welcome a private investigator's findings as part of what is considered for discovery and also are willing to touch base with your PI to offer guidance and or restrictions based upon the law. If you call on a law firm and ask for these criteria to be met then run as fast as you can.
From what I have seen of the courts in Mississippi the lower court judges take license in how they interpret the laws, appellate courts often rule in favor of lower courts as state higher courts tend to be conservative.
Once you have lost your lower court case, it becomes more expensive and an upward battle, not impossible to win but why not present more evidence in the first place and get the best representation you can.
When judges have hard evidence in front of them such as video, pictures, taped interviews, background reports, impeachment issues it is harder for them to rule in favor of one sex or the other, or for a family friend. Yes judges are suppose to recuse themselves if they have a conflict of interest but often they do not believe they have a conflict, they try to convince themselves that they are above that, or can manage their bias.
One more thing you may want to consider is changing your attorney if you lose the first round at the lower court. A new attorney offers a fresh look and can find mistakes and things that were overlooked by the first attorney and the new attorney does not have anything to clean up so to speak and if you stay with the same attorney in most cases you are going to get the same results.
We can help you vet an attorney and offer our best professional opinion on the track record and competency of an attorney you are considering.
We also have attorneys we have worked with and can assist you with a referral. Most of the time it is best to hire a private investigator first and begin to gather evidence so you have some hard facts to bring to your attorney, in some cases it is best to hire both at the same time so as to have more cohesion in cases which are sensitive and require the collaboration immediately.
