- Of Counsel
If you are being sued or are contemplating filing a lawsuit in New Jersey, it may be prudent for you to hire an attorney. If you don’t know where to begin your search for legal help, consider the following when looking for an attorney to represent you in your legal matter.
Experience is important when choosing a lawyer. You will want an attorney who is actively practicing law in the area in which you need counsel. For example, if your company is being sued for copyright infringement, you want a business lawyer who has experience with copyright cases. When looking to hire an attorney, it is acceptable to ask law firms about their specific experience in areas of the law and the success of their attorneys in settling and litigating cases.
Where an attorney or law firm is physically located is also an important factor to consider. Ideally, you should find an experienced law office or attorney close in proximity to you or your opposing party.
