Identify if your lawyer is right for you

Ideal lawyers will not just have a string of impressive credentials or gold lettering on his or her door. They will be caring, concerned, and devoted to their work. You need to think carefully before laying your trust in a lawyer, after all  your future, money or property will be in their hands and in some cases even your life.

Apart from doing extensive research to shortlist possible English speaking lawyers in Portugal you must ensure, that there is no conflict of interest and that you understand and let you explain if needed, what the agreement with your proposed lawyer states. You should have checked the references and details regarding the practice of your attorney as well.

You will know the lawyer you have chosen is the perfect for you if:

  • She makes an effort to spend time to understand your case itself. She will not assign a legal assistant to take the facts of  your case down.
  • From her experience and knowledge she will know what is relevant and what is not. She will set aside and ignore irrelevant facts, opinions, and personal emotions that cloud your case on hand.
  • She will insist, that the footwork for the case will be done thoroughly. All facts must be checked for accuracy and solid arguments jotted down with backing of earlier rulings.
  • She will not just focus on the problem at hand but examine the problem from all relevant sides. This will create a complete picture highlighting all factors of relevance and the different ways one can approach your legal case.
  • She will use her foresight and anticipate moves by the opposition or opinions of the jury or judge and plan way ahead. Like a master chess player she will plan the case not by the day, but by many hearings ahead.
  • She will not waste time beating around the bush or create verbose statements, many words strung together which look impressive, but mean nothing. You will be able to understand her in clear words. She will insist that the case and its arguments are clearly stated.
  • She will be self-disciplined, thorough, and self confident. Courteous at all times and she will respect you as well as all the staff who work with her.
  • She is recommended, by not just her friends and relatives, but by other professionals of good standing and from her field of expertise.
  • She will not just present to you the victories she had, but be also happy to tell you why and how she lost certain cases and the lessons learnt from them to improve for the future.
  • She will lay the cards on the table and tell you clearly whether your case stands to win or loose. She will not claim that winning is guaranteed! She will be honest and upfront about her opinions and advice in your specific case.

The bottom line is, that your choosen English speaking lawyer must be absolutelly trustworthy. Use your inborn instincts and don't go by the lawyer's good looks, fancy car or impressive office. After all, it is competence in law and in court that is of essence to you. As an English speaking lawyer in Portugal with law office in Lisbon, we are able to provide you the best legal advice you require.
