• 4 Things to Look for in a Great Law Firm

  •  

     How to educate the market about what to look for. 

    The trick is to pre qualify your audience that what you offer is exactly what they are looking for.

    There are thousands of lawyers in the country. Come to think of it, each one is equipped with sufficient knowledge and each one is capable of helping you out. The question is, how will you know if a lawyer or law firm is worth your time, money and effort? How do you separate those who commit to excellence, from those who just do it for the money?

    Today we’ll give you the top 4 things you should look for in a great law firm. These may be simple things, but in reality, they make all the difference.

    1. 1.      Constant Communication

     

    You need a lawyer who will call you at least once a day, if that’s what it needs to win a case or set your affairs in order. If your lawyer disappears or stays quiet for long periods of time, that can be a cause of worry or feelings of neglect. The only way for you to know that they’re actually working is when they’re contacting you for updates and clarifications.

     

    This is on the top of our list when it comes to dealing with clients. We always ensure that our clients are up to speed when it comes to the developments in their case or affairs. This way, we can entertain their questions and clarify any doubts that they may have.

     

    1. 2.      Attention to Detail

     

    The best law firms are those that have a keen eye for detail. You will see this in the little things that your lawyer does. Simple handwritten notes can say tons about his character. Remembering small details about your conversation can be a sign of competence and thoroughness.

     

    We know that every little detail matters that’s why we make sure to keep both actual and mental notes about each client’s story, background, and case. Small things like, where we had our lunch meeting, what our client’s favourite meal is, or who recommended our services- these are things that we take into heart.

     

    1. 3.      Resourcefulness and Various Avenues of Communication

     

    Times are changing and technology is always evolving. Therefore, you need a lawyer that knows how to best reach you. A great law firm is one that knows the different modern avenues of communication, and uses it to their client’s advantage. Smart phones, calls, texts, email- your lawyer should be familiar with how you usually communicate. By doing so, all parties will have better understanding and better collaboration.

     

    Here at our own firm, we not only know how to adapt to the times, we also know how to stay professional in all forms of communication. Emails are not an excuse to communicate poorly. We follow the same structures and level of professionalism as with regular mail, but with the leverage of getting immediate delivery and faster response.

     

    1. 4.      Good Connections

     

    Of course the first rule is to have good connections with your clients. A great law firm should have a good relationship with their clients in order to work more efficiently and effectively. The next aspect is for a lawyer or law firm to have good connections with other people be it lawyers, businessmen or other people who can provide the organization with knowledge and improvement. You need a lawyer who will constantly improve himself and not just linger on his past laurels.

    For this reason, we always urge our partners to be on the lookout for growth and learning opportunities. We introduce them to, charitable organizations, levels of government, teachers, scholars, and people from all walks of life. This way, we become well-rounded individuals who are attuned to different people and different situations.

    These simple traits are easy to explain but they can be very hard to put into practice. Now that you know what to look for in a good law firm, it’s time to find one.
