Choosing Good Disability Lawyers in Federal Way
Have you been denied Social Security disability payments? Don’t give up. Get a lawyer to help you through the process. Don’t try to do it all by yourself. Follow these tips on how to choose good Disability lawyers in Federal Way and you will soon be able to get the help you deserve.
Check Out the DRM WebWatcher
Although you can get contact information about local attorneys from your Chamber of Commerce or Yellow Pages, you can get more information from the Disability Rights Management (DRM) WebWatcher. They have a list of links specifically for Washington State residents under the “State” tab.
Don’t Hire the First Attorney You Come Across
Once you get a list of names and contact information, set up initial consultations or interviews with each of these lawyers. It’s like an employer interviewing job candidates. Although most disability attorneys will offer a free initial consultation, not all do. Lawyers who charge an initial consultation fee are not necessarily any better than those that don’t.
Easy to Contact
You will never when you need to get in touch with your attorney over the course of your case. It’s best to choose someone who you know will get back to you in a reasonable amount of time. If a lawyer takes days to return an email or has to be called repeatedly before you get him or her on the phone, this is a bad sign.
Easy to Understand
Your lawyer should talk to you in everyday language and not try to snow you with tons of legal jargon. A good lawyer takes the time to answer all of your questions and listen to your side of the story. A good lawyer will also clearly explain the fee structure and when payments are due.
No Wild Promises
Good lawyers will not promise you anything other than working as hard as they can for you. They should not predict that you will win millions or that the case will be over in a matter of days.
