There are more and more cases in which, for whatever reason, there is a need for legal assistance from the workplace to the family, in many situations of everyday life the intervention of a lawyer is indispensable.
The term most used to define the way in which the client relates to his lawyer is the verb “to trust”; this is not accidental. The client, in fact, unprepared and inexperienced in the legal field, relies completely on the chosen lawyer, giving him the task of representing him in all the offices in order to defend his position. It is therefore intuitive how the choice of a lawyer (above all of a good lawyer) rather than another, can really be decisive for solving their problems in the best possible way.
- But how to do it?
- How can one consciously decide which lawyer is right in relation to the problem to be addressed?
The Inadequacy of “Word Of Mouth”
At one time, the choice of lawyer was guided by relational and social factors (most of the time we turned to the friend of the relative, to the relative of the friend, etc.). This mechanism was made possible by a series of conditions that favored its functioning. The figure of the lawyer, today, has changed considerably: knowing his lawyer through a friend or an acquaintance can no longer represent a certainty about his professional skills.
Law firms and legal professionals in general have abandoned the role of the factotum of the law, to take a completely different one. They are now specialized professionals who, once their basic preparation has been completed, have continued to study and study only specific and specific subjects. If on the one hand, therefore, they can offer high quality services and technical depth in a very precise and defined sector, on the other they are certainly less versatile. The same lawyer can therefore prove to be an excellent professional in a field, but not as good in others. With the family law in Sydney this happens to be a very important matter.
This important change makes the choice of the lawyer made through the “word of mouth” method quite risky, in fact:
- There would be a danger of entrusting your problem to an inexperienced lawyer in the matter.
- The professional fee should therefore be paid without having solved the legal question.
- This loss of time (and money) would irreparably compromise the possibility of obtaining the desired protection.
If it is no longer advisable to look for your lawyer with the old methods, it may mean that the time has come to widen your gaze also to the news.
Professionals in every sector have greatly changed their way of approaching potential interlocutors, as well as how to make themselves known to customers. This change took place in the first place thanks to a great openness to the technological and computer world. The virtuous exploitation of the Internet, with the use of e-mails, social networks and web platforms, is the element that most of all determines today the possibility of connecting supply and demand.
