How to Find Your Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer
Contact the Florida State Bar to make sure your lawyer is in good standing and has the experience. Ask other lawyers, friends, and family for recommendations. Look at the about me pages on each lawyer’s website. You need to feel comfortable with your attorney. Take the time to meet and make sure you feel good about their representation.
The initial consultation is generally free. Find out if the lawyer charges a flat fee; by the hour; or by the result. If charging by the hour, find out if there is a limit to the amount you will be billed. Sometimes attorney’s fees can be included in a settlement. Find out if there is a retainer (down payment toward your final fees). Also discuss payment options and any other expenses, such as court fees.
What to Bring to Your First Meeting
Bring with you all paperwork, including emails, related to your case.
If dealing with debt harassment, document when and what types of phone calls you have received.
What to Expect
Most importantly, your attorney should keep in regular communication with you. You should know where your case is, what is happening between the different parties, and where the case is going. If you asked for additional paperwork, you provide it to your attorney as soon as possible. If the case goes to trial, your attorney will help you prepare for the deposition and trial.
