Reed Asks You to Check Your Lawyer’s Credentials

The key with any legal case is in working solely with people and businesses and attorneys you trust and who you should vet very carefully before turning over your case, your finances and investments.

Research the attorney you want to hire. Check with the Florida Bar about a lawyer’s standing. Read several sources for online reviews. Read the attorney’s website and watch several videos. Lookup the attorney’s law firm, even check with former employers and ask for references from the attorney before signing a contract with them. It’s imperative to know who it is that you’re working with.
