How should I choose my lawyer?

Before you commit to a lawyer, you should research the practices in your area that work with claims like yours. It is important to know about the education, experience, and prior results of the lawyers you are considering hiring. You should also take note of how the law firm typically receives payments from clients. It is in your best interest to choose a lawyer or law practice that suits your financial and legal needs. If you cannot afford a particular attorney, it simply might not be possible to hire him or her even if you have confidence in his or her abilities. At the law offices of Beam-Ward, Kruse, Wilson & Fletes, LLC, we have attractive hourly rates, and, in civil cases, we may be able to arrange a contingency fee payment method as well.
