How do I know if my lawyer is any good?


Not all lawyers are the same. Just like not all doctors are the same kind of doctor. If you have a brain tumor you don’t want to go see a dentist. If you have an abscess tooth, you don’t want to go see a podiatrist So first, it’s important to make sure that you find an attorney who handles child sex abuse civil lawsuits. You want to ask them about their experience in doing this how many child sex-abuse civil cases have they filed and against what types of organizations? Just because someone has experience suing the Church doesn’t mean they know how to sue the Boy Scouts or a daycare center. So in addition to finding someone who has the right experience you want to make sure that you have an attorney that you’re comfortable working with. Only you can decide who’s right for you. I often tell people your relationship with your attorney is as personal and intimate as your relationship with your therapist or your college roommate. So it’s important to talk to lots of them and find who’s the right fit for you.
