What Price Should You Pay for a Utah Personal Injury Lawyer?

Jul 8, 2008
Lawyers aren't something we need on a day to day basis usually and there isn't one set way to comparison shop because each person's needs are different when it comes to their lawyer. There are a couple tips and tricks though that you can do and know so that as you research you can make a better informed decision.

Tip #1: A lawyer's reputation effects his or her cost- A lawyer that is known to win a lot will cost you more money because it is like social proof for their skills. Depending on your case a well known lawyer may be what you need, but on the other hand don't think you need to use a machete to cut your steak. Only pay for what you need.

Tip #2: A lot of lawyers have overhead costs that you need to be aware before any work is done. Some slick lawyers will try and hide them until the end and if you catch your lawyer doing that then don't stick around to let them fight your case. If they can't be honest with their client then your wellbeing is not their first concern.

Tip #3: A novice charging only $100 may actually end up costing you more then a more experienced lawyer charging a higher hourly wage. The reason is that a seasoned lawyer will have experience when it comes to where to look for the necessary information and so could probably collect it more quickly. A novice could spend 2 or 3 hours longer on a task then an experienced lawyer charging twice as much would, simply because they haven't learned where to look.

Tip #4: Lawyers on TV and lawyer you work with are different. Because our society loves drama and action lawyer shows are hyped up to be appealing. If you walk in or research your lawyer measuring them against the TV lawyer standard you will always be disappointed. Not that lawyers outside the TV realm aren't impressively competent but they focus isn't drama and action so don't expect them to try your case as such.

Utah Lawyers come in every range possible, from competent and reliable to tricky and ignorant. These tips can really help you find the lawyer you want for your case and situation. Research, look around and then when you decide know that your interviews with your lawyers aren't just so he or she can learn about you. They are also for you to quiz them and make sure they fit your situation.
