Why is Legal Legends different from finding a lawyer on Google?

Searching for a law firm online is easy, but there’s one problem—the top results on Google are there because they’ve “won” the marketing battle, not necessarily because they’re a top law firm. Legal Legends only features true winners. We personally review ace attorneys and list our top picks to make your life a whole lot easier.

What’s the best way to find a lawyer?

At Legal Legends, you can narrow down your search based on criteria like practice specialty and location, making it simple and quick to find “personal injury attorneys in Florida” or “real estate lawyers in New York” in one convenient place. Whatever your needs, we’ve found an ace attorney who can help.

Why should I hire an attorney?

The truth is that most legal matters have become so frustratingly complex that hiring an attorney is almost necessary. A qualified, experienced attorney will make your life a thousand times easier, help you avoid stress and lost sleep, and ultimately help you get a better outcome than most people are able to on their own.

How much does an attorney cost?

There is a ton of variation between attorneys in terms of cost. Different practice areas (and even specific case types within those practice areas) demand different rates. More experienced attorneys tend to cost more. And, your location even plays a role. Attorneys can charge by the hour, flat rates for different services, up-front retainer fees, or contingency for certain cases.

Do lawyers offer free case evaluations/consultations?

Many lawyers (across legal fields) offer free consultations to their clients. Your consultation is a valuable opportunity to learn more about the legal process, discover strong and weak points of your case, and find out what the first step should be. These insights can help you save money and countless lost hours, too.

Why is it so important to find a great lawyer?

Not every lawyer has what it takes to deliver results. You need an ace attorney who will truly give it their all, support you, and advocate for your rights no matter what. The difference between finding any lawyer and finding a great lawyer could mean the difference between total failure and total success.

How do I narrow down my search?

With nearly 1.5 million lawyers nationwide, picking the right attorney for your case might seem like an impossible task. You may have dozens of choices in your town alone. We eliminate the confusion and only list the top percentage of attorneys who get results for their clients. Finding an incredible attorney has never been easier.

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

Usually, the answer is no. There are so many variations between states, and in most cases, an attorney must be licensed by the state bar association where they practice. Many people waste time looking for lawyers online, only to discover that their desired law firm isn’t licensed locally. Here, you can search directly for locally licensed law firms, without the headache.

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

Asking questions is the best way to figure out if your attorney is a good match. Ask your lawyer if they specialize in a certain field of law, how many cases they’ve represented, how long they’ve been practicing, how they handle payment, whether you have a strong case or not, and how often you can expect updates about the status of your case.

Can I represent my own case?

In most cases, you can certainly represent yourself. However, there’s a reason why most people hire an attorney—from personal injury to civil rights to workers compensation and everything in between, you have a much higher chance of achieving your desired outcome with an ace attorney at your side.
