Do Your Homework When Hiring a Lawyer

As more mobile phone users access the internet, and use websites and apps to rate everything from pizza delivery to dentists, we’ve become used to doing homework before we spend money on a service or product.

There’s no difference when it comes time to hire a lawyer in the State of Maryland. In fact, the state itself maintains an online database that’s available to anyone.

Called the Judiciary Case Search, this website is constantly updated with legal information that lists the lawyer or law firm that was involved and a variety of details.

The website is very simple to use. You can input the attorney or firm’s name, or look up by case number, if you have it. In addition you can search by case type and court system, along with the particular county in Maryland.

Clicking on a case number reveals all of the legal filings associated with that case, complete with the judge’s ruling or however the case was resolved.

The records also show the case type, and this allows you to immediately see if the attorney or firm you’re going to hire is experienced in a particular area of the law. You can quickly see if they’ve been successful with your type of case.

Searching through the results may help you determine how long you can expect your case to take. Remember that every case is different, but this information will enable you to get an overall idea of what to expect.

Performing your own homework before hiring legal representation is key in today’s world and the Judiciary Case Search provides you with an excellent starting point.

After you’ve gathered up your information, don’t forget that it’s wise to ask co-workers, friends, and family. Their feedback will help to round out the information you’ve already collected.

Meeting with a prospective legal counsel will help you make that final decision. Remember you’ll be spending time with your attorney or law firm and personalities should complement each other if you’re going to find success.
