Quatela Chimeri, PLLC


If you need to hire a divorce attorney or other type of lawyer for the first time in your life, it can be overwhelming. Good lawyers can seem impossible to find, and the search can add to an already very stressful situation.

At our New York law firm, we are committed to empowering you to make the best decisions for you and your family. When you meet with a prospective lawyer, make sure you ask good questions to clarify if you want the lawyer on your team. In the next few blogs, we will share the best questions to ask a prospective lawyer.

  1. How long have you practiced?
    • This is the most basic information to get from a lawyer, and you need to get it every time. You need to know how much experience this lawyer has to determine if your case is a good fit for him or her.
  2. How many cases have you had like mine?
    • You are allowed to "pry" into the lawyer's past experience! Again, it is all about finding a good fit. Do not be afraid to ask how many cases have been won or settled, either. You probably have a lot on the line, and you deserve information.
  3. What specialized training or knowledge do you have that could be helpful to my case (other than a law degree)?
    • Some cases such as DUI and patent cases for example, require unique training and experience if you want representation to be effective. Do not compromise until you get the perfect fit.

At Quatela Hargraves & Chimeri, PLLC, we have a determined team with a massive range of knowledge and experience. Contact us today to schedule a meeting.
