What to Look for When Hiring a Civil Attorney

If something has happened in your life where you think your civil rights as a human have been infringed upon, it might be a good time to seek out a civil attorney. Here are a few benefits or things to look out for when hiring one.

THEY CAN OFFER AN EVALUATION

A civil attorney can offer insight into your situation and tell you if you really are being discriminated against. These aren’t just work discriminations either. They can involve University and Housing situations, renting a car, or just about anything else. Discrimination revolves around sexual orientation, race, religion, gender, and country of origin.

They also include unwarranted search and seizures, cruel and unusual punishment, abuse by an official, or any number of situations.

TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

Most people have never hired a lawyer and don’t even know how to start the path to finding one. The best place you can start is with asking your friends and family for advice. Ask around, to find out if they have ever hired a civil attorney or if they know of someone else who has. Who did they hire? How did the civil attorney help them? What is their contact information? Did they win?

DO IT NOW, NOT LATER

When it comes to lawsuits and a violation of civil rights, there ARE statutes of limitations. This means you only have a short window of time to talk to someone and get your claim going before its too late. Once the limitations have passed, you can’t hire a civil attorney for the issue and you can’t file a claim or sue.

FREE CONSULTATIONS

These days, just about every single type of lawyer, including a civil attorney, has a free consultation option. This lets discuss your situation, ask questions, ask the civil attorney about their input and more. Free consultations really are free.

Be prepared for your consultation and make the most of it. Write down a list of questions to ask, examples of where you felt you were being discriminated against if you had witnesses to these situations, and what your goals are for the claim.

ASK ABOUT EXPERIENCE

It is expected for you to ask the civil attorney for details and testimonials of their track record. You should be looking for an attorney who can really help you win your case and achieve your goals.

For a Free Consultation contact Sloat & Nicholson at 1-800-873-3202.
