Too many times when victims are looking for Whistle Blower Lawyers, or any lawyer for that matter, they tend to go with the first one they contact.
Don't find out after it's too late and you not only lost but now your out of a job also and possibly money too.
There is way too much at stake, so check them out.
Before you get raked over the coals and lose, here are some possible things to ask them first!
How many cases involving the whistle blower law have you handled?
Remember if they are claiming to be Whistle Blower Lawyers then they should have handled a number of them. If they are brand new out of law school, or this is the first time they have handled a whistle blower case then don't be there learning curve.
Of the cases they handled how many ended positively for the victim? If there were any, follow that question with can you give me some examples.
What time of day did you call and did they have someone that answered the telephone for them or did they pick it up themselves?
Of the cases they handled how many ended up in the actual court room and how many were settled prior?
If I am going to have heart surgery I don't just want to know how many surgeries the doctor has performed, but how many lived!
Find out how complicated the cases were and if they seem to match up to your situation.
Talk and listen to see if they are attentive to you. Are they really listening to your questions and answers or are they annoyed?
Do they seem to have passion or are they acting like they can't wait to hang up and get another cup of coffee.
Find someone with actual court room experience even though you are hoping to settle out of court. This is important I believe.
Finally be clear on what their expenses are. Don't find out after you get started.
I have had one experience, not with Whistle Blower Lawyers, but with another private attorney very early in my life that I just picked out of a phone book and trust me I was very sorry.
It cost me and my wife our home.
Don't make the same mistake we did then! Check them out thoroughly first.
Good Luck and May God Bless You!
