Why Shouldn't You Just Hire Cheapest Criminal Defense Lawyer?
Why You Shouldn’t Hire the Cheapest Attorney
The question is why you shouldn’t go out and hire the cheapest attorney you can find. At Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, we are not the cheapest attorneys that you could hire. We don’t try to be, we don’t want to be and frankly picking an attorney based on how little they charge is a terrible way to choose a lawyer.
At Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, we strive to provide the highest quality legal representation as well as the finest customer service possible. There is no way that we could possibly do that on the cheap.
Quality Legal Representation is Essential
Legal representation of exceptional quality should be the most important criterion when searching for a lawyer and it will lead to the most favorable outcome possible in your case. That is true from a DWI all the way up through homicide, from a personal injury case arising out of a car accident through a custody action where the amount of time you get to spend with your children is at stake.
What About Something Simple Like a Speeding Ticket?
Frequently, potential clients ask why they shouldn’t hire the cheapest attorney in a simple speeding case. That’s a pretty understandable question. After all, they’re thinking what can go wrong the simple speeding case. The problem is that the answer to that question is that plenty can go wrong. Not all attorneys read their clients’ driving records.
Without reading the driving record it is impossible to know precisely what is in the best interests of the client. Some attorneys simply get PJC’s, otherwise known as prayers for judgment, for all of their clients in all situations. That can end up being costly mistake. And we know just how costly it can be because we’re frequently hired to fix that exact type of mistake on a fairly regular basis.
Don’t Choose a Lawyer Based on Price
You would not even consider choosing a surgeon based on who is cheapest. You should not even consider choosing your lawyer exclusively on price.
Talk with attorneys, ask them questions, check out their website, and consider their experience level with your type of case as well is your comfort level with them. Is the attorney patient and helpful or do they simply want to move on to the next client?
These are the questions that you should be asking. While cost is certainly a component of the decision, effective learned counsel should be your primary goal.
