Hiring the Lawyer
Speed things up! Please review the information that I require on the page about hiring the lawyer
Conflicts of interest
Before a lawyer can be hired, the lawyer needs to know whether the lawyer has any relationships which could constitute conflicts of interest - or whether the client has relationships which could lead the lawyer to have conflicts of interest. It is a bad investment to hire a lawyer who can't get the job done. So, in your e-mail, let me know:
Who are you? If a businesses are involved, what are their names? Who owns them? What individual people's actions got you where you are now? Who will be directly affected by the outcome? Who are the main witnesses for each side? Generally, what kind of problem or transaction is involved? For instance, 'it involves non payment for work under a construction contract.'
Do not tell me the specifics of the dispute until I have determined whether I have any conflicts of interest. Inquiring whether I am available as an lawyer is not a means to disqualify me from continuing to represent my existing clients.
