Words from our clients...

From day one, Brycen was so supportive and attentive to my concerns and needs. Working with him and Adam was everything I could’ve asked for and more. Anytime I had a question or needed extra support, they were always quick with responses and made time to work around my schedule to speak with me. Their knowledge left me speechless at times, and listening to them talk and come up with strategies was so impressive! I found myself in awe on more than one occasion. These two will GET IT DONE. 10/10 can’t recommend enough.

Look for a lawyer who is willing to meet with you in person and is responsive to your calls and emails.

  3. Resources and Network: High-complex cases often require a team of experts and specialized resources, so it is important to choose a lawyer who has access to a network of experts and resources to support your case.

  4. Communication Skills: A good lawyer should have excellent communication skills, both oral and written, to present your case effectively in court and to communicate with you, the client.

  6. Cost and billing structure: It is important to understand the cost of hiring a lawyer and the billing structure before making a decision. High-complex cases can be expensive, so make sure you are comfortable with the lawyer’s fees and billing structure

Ultimately, the most important factor in choosing a lawyer for a high-complex case is your level of comfort and trust in the attorney’s ability to handle your case and achieve the best possible outcome.

Assessing a lawyer’s credibility can be a challenging task, but there are several key factors to consider when evaluating a lawyer’s credibility:

  1. Education and Training: A lawyer’s education and training can provide insight into their qualifications and expertise. Look for a lawyer who has graduated from a reputable law school and has undergone additional training in the area of law related to your case.

  2. Professional Experience: Look for a lawyer who has significant experience in the practice area related to your case. A lawyer with a long-standing practice will have the knowledge and experience to handle your case effectively.

  3. Professional Memberships: Look for a lawyer who is a member of professional organizations such as the American Bar Association, the state bar association, or other relevant legal organizations.

  4. Awards and Recognitions: Look for a lawyer who has received awards and recognitions for their work in the legal field. This can be a sign of a lawyer’s credibility and reputation in the legal community.

  5. Client Reviews: Look for client reviews, testimonials, and references. This can provide you with an idea of the lawyer’s previous clients’ experience and can help you understand their credibility.

  6. Communication skills: A good lawyer should be able to explain your legal situation in simple terms and should be able to answer your questions clearly and effectively.

  7. Ethical Standards: Look for a lawyer who has a good reputation for ethical standards, in addition to the above-mentioned factors, a good reputation for ethical standards is a good indication of credibility.

Ultimately, it is important to conduct thorough research and to ask questions to evaluate a lawyer’s credibility. The lawyer should be able to provide clear and well-reasoned answers to your questions and should be able to provide references from previous clients if requested.

Determining a legal strategy can be a complex process that requires careful consideration of several factors. At Williams & Ray, our process is to:

  1. Understand the facts of the case: Gather all relevant information and documents related to your case, including any relevant contracts, emails, or other communications. Understand the key facts of the case, the legal issues involved, and any deadlines or statutes of limitations that may apply.

  2. Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case: Identify the strengths and weaknesses of your case and consider how they may impact your legal strategy. For example, if you have strong evidence in your favor, you may want to consider pursuing a settlement or going to trial.

  3. Understand the laws and regulations: Understand the laws and regulations that apply to your case. Research relevant case law and statutes to understand how they may impact your legal strategy.

  4. Identify potential outcomes: Identify the potential outcomes of your case and consider how they may impact your legal strategy. For example, if the outcome of your case may have a significant impact on your business or personal life, you may want to consider pursuing a settlement or going to trial.

  5. Consider the costs: Consider the costs associated with different legal strategies, including attorney’s fees, court costs, and any other expenses. This will help you determine which strategy is most cost-effective for your specific case.

  6. Communicate effectively: Discuss your legal strategy and explain the legal strategy to you in simple terms and  answer your questions to grant you as much input and control as possible.

Determining a reasonable price for a lawyer can be difficult, as it can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of case, the lawyer’s experience and qualifications, and the location. However, here are some general guidelines to consider when determining a reasonable price for a lawyer:

  1. Hourly rate: Many lawyers charge an hourly rate for their services. The hourly rate can vary depending on the lawyer’s experience and qualifications, as well as the location. On average, the hourly rate for a lawyer can range from $250 to $350 per hour, or more.

  2. Flat fee: Some lawyers may charge a flat fee for their services. This is a set fee that covers all legal services related to your case. The flat fee can vary depending on the type of case and the lawyer’s experience and qualifications.

  3. Retainer: Some lawyers may require a retainer, which is a deposit that is paid up front. The retainer is used to cover the lawyer’s time and expenses. The amount of the retainer can vary depending on the type of case and the lawyer’s experience and qualifications.

  4. Contingency fee: Some lawyers may charge a contingency fee, which is a percentage of any settlement or award that is received. This type of fee arrangement is most common in personal injury cases, where the lawyer takes on all the risk of the case and only gets paid if the case is won.

Ultimately, it is important to understand that the cost of a lawyer can vary widely and it is important to shop around and compare prices from different lawyers. It is also important to discuss the cost and fee arrangements with the lawyer upfront and to make sure that you understand the costs associated with your case.
