Asking your auto accident lawyer “how long have you been in practice?” is a good idea.
It’s one of the most important auto accident lawyer questions you should ask.
An attorney who is new to their law practice, obviously, doesn’t have experience. But, the lawyer may be hungry and willing to go the extra mile to help you in order to prove him/herself. Additionally, a new lawyer may cost less.
It’s your job to make the determination what’s in your best interest judging between experience, cost and your lawyers determination to perform in your best interest.
It’s in your best interest to ask you lawyer “how long have you been in practice?” before hiring them to represent you.
