Why should I hire an attorney?

In this day and age, hiring an attorney for legal help is almost a necessity. Laws have become so complicated that representing your own case is a daunting task—a task that many people fail. For all but the most simple cases, you want to hire an attorney. Lawyers know the ins and outs of the legal system and will make your life a thousand times easier.

How much does an attorney cost?

Lawyers usually charge by the hour based mainly on their level of experience (among other factors), but can sometimes charge a flat rate for some transactions. A typical 1-2 hour visit could cost several hundred dollars, with an ongoing legal battle running into the thousands. If cost is one of your primary concerns, be sure to look for an attorney who doesn’t charge unless you win.

Do lawyers offer free case evaluations/consultations?

Yes! Many—if not most—attorneys will offer a free consultation and case evaluation where they will help you discover the details of your case, help you determine just how strong your case is, and provide valuable insights that could save you tens of thousands of dollars and possibly months of wasted time.

Why is it so important to find a great lawyer?

Not everyone can be “elite.” But at Legal Legends, we’ve selected the fighters for you already—no pencil pushers here, only winners.

How many lawyers are in California?

According to the State Bar of California, there are more than 250,000 licensed attorneys right now. With hundreds of thousands of choices, we know better than anyone that finding a great lawyer is like finding a needle in a haystack. We’re here to narrow down your search to only the best lawyers in California, period.

Can lawyers who are licensed in a different state practice law in California?

No. Your lawyer must be in compliance with each state’s bar requirements in order to practice law, meaning a lawyer who moves to California must then become licensed in California (with few exceptions). Every California lawyer you find at Legal Legends is vetted to ensure they are in full compliance with state laws and guidelines.

What kind of questions should I ask a lawyer before I hire them?

Depending on the type of lawyer you hire and the details of your case, you should be asking your attorney several questions before you decide which one to hire. Ask about their legal specialty, how long they’ve practiced law, how they bill clients, whether they can tell you up front how strong your case is, how often they will update you on your case, etc.

Do I have to pay if I don’t win?

That will depend on your lawyer and on what type of case you’re talking about. Many personal injury and workers compensation lawyers don’t charge clients unless they win, and then take a certain percentage of your payout as their fee. When you connect with a Legal Legend, you’ll be able to take a closer look at pricing and weigh your options.

Can I represent my own case?

It’s true that you CAN represent your own case, and you are NOT legally obligated to hire an attorney. However, there’s a big reason why most people hire a lawyer—because hiring a lawyer drastically improves your chances of winning your case and being treated fairly by the legal system. Don’t risk it!
