Some things to consider when interviewing an attorney before hiring:

• Personality. Do you feel comfortable with this person? If not, trust your instincts and move on! There are many other lawyers out there.

• Communication. Will this lawyer return your calls quickly? Will he or she give you a cell phone number or will you have to go through the secretary? It’s important to find this out early, especially if immediate responses are necessary in your case.
