How to Tell if a Your Lawyer is Bad

Published April 3, 2017 in Lawyer - 0 Comments

A common problem that people when they are dealing with legal issues, that they hire a very bad or inexperienced lawyer. However, there is a difference between bad and inexperienced, the inexperienced ones will try their hardest to help you but they won’t succeed, but the bad ones will not even show the slightest effort. Trust me, I have seen some bad lawyers throughout my career, and the interesting thing that I realized that their client doesn’t think that their lawyer is bad. That’s why I decided to make this article about some of the signs that indicate your lawyer is bad.

Bad Communication

One of the few things that a client has to have with his lawyer is a good and healthy communication. If you want him to help you, you must tell him everything that he asks you. However, I have seen throughout my career some cases where clients were angry at their lawyer because they would not communicate with them whenever they wanted. The respond of those bad lawyers was that they will communicate when he thinks it is time. If you had experience with such lawyer, I recommend that you immediately find a new one because a lawyer should always be there for his clients. If he is not able to answer his phone right away, he should call you immediately when he has time on his hands.

Not Time for You

This is another clear indicator that your lawyer is bad. If you cannot make an appointment with your lawyer, that means that he has already a lot of other cases he is working on. In these situations, is better to find some other lawyer. Because even if he finds some time for you, it will be hurried and you will not be able to discuss all the important information.

Befriended with the Opposing Lawyer

It is very common for lawyers to know each other, however, there is a line that should never be crossed. Two lawyers should never become friends because that will influence their cases if they ever work against each other. If you see that your lawyer is a friend of the opposing lawyer, find some other because their friendship can jeopardize your case. So, it is very important that you do your research about a lawyer before you hire him.

You Didn’t Receive Money

This doesn’t happen often, but it can and when it does, you will know that he is bad because most likely he ran with your money that legally belongs to you. In some cases, clients don’t even realize that they can potentially earn money from a case. Some lawyers try to keep that information a secret so their client won’t ask for it. That way they can take all that money for themselves without you even knowing. To avoid such thing, ask him about everything that is involved in your case, and ask if there is any possibility of making money. If you somehow end up with no money, the best thing I can recommend to you is to sue him or report.
