Make sure you’re getting the best Florida disability lawyer for your case by asking these four questions.
Making sure your Florida disability lawyer is the right person for your case is imperative for the overall success of the case.
When looking into a Florida disability lawyer to represent you, you should ask these three questions.
Have you handled this type of case before?
This is one of the most important questions to ask. Making sure your lawyer has dealt with this specific situation can save you a lot of wasted time, effort, and expenses down the road.
Get specific with their answer too. Don’t just accept a “yes” response, follow up with details on how the cases went and what was the outcome. Determine right away whether they have the knowledge and prowess in handling your case.
An excellent follow-up question is to ask if they’ve worked with the judges who will most likely preside over the case. Every judge is different, and a lawyer who has worked with the specific judge involved will be able to give you advice on the situation that you can expect.
What will the fees and expenses be?
This is another essential question to ask because you don’t want any surprises down the road. Be upfront with your Florida disability lawyer on what you can afford and ask what their fees are. Many social security lawyers will represent you for a “contingency fee,” meaning they will get a portion of the money you receive from your backpay.
What does trial look like?
What are the potential outcomes? No lawyer can tell you for sure what the outcome of your case is but most will have an idea of what your chances for a successful trial are. Knowing ahead of time if you’re going into a case that has no possible positive outcome could help you make some critical decisions down the road.
