While many attorneys charge upfront by the hour and for expenses, at Tuley Law Office, our fee is contingency based, meaning you won’t pay a dime until we make a recovery for you.  

How to Find an Evansville Attorney That’s Right for You

There are hundreds of attorneys serving the Evansville area, so you’ll have to carefully decide which one is the best fit for your case. There are many factors to consider when choosing an attorney, including their experience, practice area, and personality.

If you’re looking for legal advice after an injury and conduct a Google search for attorneys in Evansville, Indiana, you’ll get numerous results. You can start by reading reviews left by previous clients to narrow down some of your options. You can also talk with people in your network to find additional recommendations.  At Tuley Law Office, the majority of our clients have been referred to us by their friends and/or family.  In fact, that is something we pride ourselves on.  After all, there is no greater compliment than for prior clients to recommend their family and friends to us.

Next, you’ll have to contact the law firms you’re considering either through their online contact forms, email, or phone calls. The first step is to typically schedule a consultation to ask prospective attorneys questions about your case.

Some questions you might want to ask an Evansville lawyer before hiring one include:

  • What is your experience with cases like mine?
  • What is your success rate?
  • How much do you charge? What are the potential outcomes of my case?
  • How often will I be updated on my case, and how will you communicate with me?
  • How long might it take to resolve my case?
  • Do you have references I can contact?
  • What are the next steps?

After you meet with several attorneys, your next step is to choose one. But how do you know which one is right for you?

Typically, you need an attorney who has managed cases similar to yours and had successful outcomes. And it may seem simple, but you also want to choose a lawyer that you feel most comfortable working with since most cases take time to conclude. 

By taking the time to compare attorneys, you can be sure that you are getting the best possible representation for your case.

How to Prepare for Your First Meeting With an Attorney

Before meeting with an Evansville lawyer, it’s important to be prepared. This means gathering all the documents related to your case, including insurance contracts, police reports, medical records, and other relevant paperwork.  For motor vehicle personal injury claims, for example, we recommend bringing with you any (or all) of the following if you have them:

  1. Police report
  2. Medical records and/or bills
  3. Health insurance information/correspondence related to your treatment
  4. Auto insurance information/correspondence related to your accident
  5. Defendant’s insurance information/correspondence related to your accident
  6. Any other document received regarding your accident

Be prepared to discuss your goals for the meeting. What do you hope to accomplish? A lawyer can help you develop a clear plan for moving forward, but you must have a clear idea of your objectives before the meeting begins.

Be honest with your lawyer. The attorney-client relationship is built on trust, so it is important that you feel comfortable sharing information honestly. This will allow the attorney to provide you with the best possible advice and representation.

The first meeting with a lawyer is an opportunity for you to get to know the attorney. It’s also an opportunity for the attorney to learn more about your case and determine whether they can help you.
