5 Benefits Of Hiring A Solo Lawyer

With 1.3 million lawyers in the US and counting, how do you choose which lawyer will be best for you? How do you determine which lawyer is best-equipped to solve your legal needs? The answers to these questions largely depend on your particular needs.

If you choose to hire a solo lawyer to solve your legal needs, here are 5 benefits you can expect to receive.

1.  You will be working with the same lawyer with whom you initially met. Most law firms are set up so that several lawyers are working on your case. Often times, the lawyer that you initially met with isn’t the lawyer handling your case. This can create confusion, especially if you have to get information about your case and different lawyers tell you different things about your case status.

However, with a solo lawyer, you don’t have to ask several lawyers about the status of your case. More importantly, the lawyer with whom you originally met is the same lawyer handling your case.  If you need information about your case, you know exactly who to call.

2. Personalized, one-on-one relationship and attention to your case. One of the benefits you receive when working with a solo lawyer is the personalized attention to your case. Because you will be working exclusively with one lawyer, you can nurture and develop a strong attorney-client relationship and grow to trust your lawyer. In return, your solo lawyer will be able to devote more time and energy to your case in order to resolve your legal issues.

3. Lower fees and costs. Because solo lawyers can set their own legal fees and costs without answering to a supervising lawyer, you can often work with a solo lawyer at a rate less than lawyers in law firms while still receiving the same quality of representation.

4. Better chance that your case will be taken. Solo lawyers are their own boss. They do not have to worry about asking a supervising lawyer or partner if they can take your case. For these reasons, you have a higher chance of your case being accepted by a solo lawyer.

5. Application of general legal knowledge. Most solo lawyers don’t specialize in just one particular practice area, which means that they can apply their general knowledge of the law to your specific case in order to discover various outcomes and potential solutions to your case.
