Rules for choosing a lawyer

If you use a directory of lawyers to search, search by specialization.
The same principle (search by specialization) should be used when searching on Google.

Use the right category, problem description, or desired solution.

That is, it makes no sense to look for a lawyer at all, using phrases like lawyer Kyiv, because you have to spend a lot of time looking for the right specialist among all lawyers.

You need to find a lawyer who specializes in your problem.

For example, if you have problems in the family, these could be requests like:
- family lawyer
- divorce lawyer
- property division lawyer
- lawyer for issues registration of inheritance etc.

If you can succinctly state the problem, do it as a question:
- how to take the child abroad if the father does not give permission
- what share in the apartment can I claim in case of divorce
- how to get alimony, etc.

Try to find a lawyer with a narrow specialization, who is not competent in all branches of law, but only in the subject you need.

1. How to understand that a lawyer specializes in the area of law you need

The right lawyer should have a website, and the website says about it
If the lawyer’s website, in addition to the specifics you need, lists all areas of law, from administrative to criminal, and you need, for example, only family law, this should raise doubts.
It is possible that the lawyer on the site claims a wide range of specializations simply because he wants to create an aura of competence, or the developers who made the site said that “this is cool”, or they are trying to catch as many clients as possible on the site, then this needs to be clarified in a conversation with a lawyer .

2. Search the internet for the lawyer's last name

See where and in what context it is mentioned. If most of the mentions coincide with your problem, it’s good, if not, there is one more reason to doubt.

3. Collect phone numbers of potentially useful lawyers on paper or in a file

4. Write down on paper or in a file the text of your appeal

This will allow not to compose a new story each time, but to easily and quickly convey to the lawyer the essence of the problem and the desired result.

5. Start calling

The #1 question to ask right away is whether the lawyer you called is an expert in the area of law you need.

If the lawyer answered yes, describe the problem and ask:
Can a lawyer take care of your issue?
How many options does he have to solve this problem?
How much time do you think it will take

6. Do not try to immediately get an answer to the question - "how much"

This can lead to misunderstandings in the future, and here's why.

A competent lawyer will not name the exact amount of the solution to your problem until he talks with you personally, collects a complete picture of the causes of the problem, draws a conclusion about the legal situation in which you find yourself or may find yourself.

That is, if during the first conversation on the phone to the question “how much does it cost”, the answer immediately sounds - this is another reason to doubt.

If you are looking for a lawyer who will name the smallest amount for services, believe me, you will find one, at least because there are lawyers who use the marketing technique "the main thing is to get involved, and then we'll see."

The consequence of this approach is situations when subsequently the lawyer demands payment for "every sneeze". To avoid such problems - always sign an agreement with a lawyer! Moreover, not a single competent lawyer will work with you without a contract.

7. Visit a lawyer, get advice and sign a contract

There is no shame in asking for a lawyer's ID right away.
Do not think that a lawyer will be offended if he is asked to provide a document confirming his authority. On the contrary, you will seem to him a prudent person, which means that further cooperation will be interesting and fruitful. If the request is not properly satisfied, then you should not further try to establish contact with such a person.

Try to find out how much experience the lawyer has. Ask to let you familiarize yourself with similar precedents. It is recommended to look at several precedents in order to understand how competent a specialist is in front of you.

We believe that a positive outcome of the case requires at least 5 years of continuous practice in the field of law.

Discuss issues that concern you personally with a lawyer, offer your own solutions to the problem, despite the fact that they may seem unrealistic or simply stupid to you.

When consulting with a lawyer, you should pay attention to:
- Treat you as a client. For example, legal terminology can be confusing and you ask for clarification in simple terms. How the lawyer behaves in such a case, whether he does it or starts to get annoyed.
Does he understand the subject or does he take a book or codex from the shelf and start looking for the necessary material.
- How fast and clear answers he gives to the questions posed, whether there is eye contact with you as a client.
- How convincingly he behaves, does he operate with articles from the legislation during the conversation.
- Does the lawyer behave patiently, does he listen attentively and without interrupting, or does he want to end the conversation faster, claiming that he already understands everything.
- Does he show haste in business, how does he behave, does he make it clear that it is time to leave, and does he have many urgent matters that should be done quickly.

Offer to conclude an agreement (if the lawyer has not already done so).

Study the text of the future treaty, and pay attention to controversial points. Follow the procedure for the return of funds, payment terms and terms in which the work can be completed. Find out for yourself what exactly the lawyer will do and how he will work out the paid money. We believe that work and price should be interconnected.
