Choosing the right lawyer for your wrongful death claim

When a loved one dies, grieving family members experience a whirlwind of emotions. When it was a wrongful death, these emotions can be even harder to cope with. While many victims who have lost a loved one to wrongful death want to seek a legal remedy, their emotions often get in the way. A typical result of this is hiring the first attorney they find.

It is true that most lawyers serving Chicago residents care about helping clients reach a satisfactory outcome. However, it is still important to do your due diligence before hiring an attorney. A good relationship benefits all parties, including the lawyer. As such, all of us who practice law in the area want to cultivate a good working relationship.

Our first tip is to take notes at your initial consultation. Jot down the topics you discussed with the attorney, but also make sure to note how the consultation went and if you felt at ease with the lawyer.

Second, we urge all of those in need of legal services to ask questions, which is especially important in cases of wrongful death. Some examples of good topics for your questions include the following:

-- Years of experience handling wrongful death cases

-- Knowledge or special training related to wrongful death

-- Mission statement or philosophy in representing clients

-- Communication with client policies

Of course, these are just a few examples. You can create your own list of questions to take with you to the consultation. Remember, as lawyers, we encourage questions so that we can come together in the mutual goal of making you as whole as possible after losing someone you love.
