The task of choosing a lawyer is daunting. An internet search can result in countless pages of lawyer results for one city alone. Even more, many clients look for lawyers who specialize in the specific area of law they are seeking counsel for. But how important are specialties and what does a legal specialty really mean?
Why We’re Asking:
Lawyer websites can be confusing to their clients. Some claim to specialize in certain areas of law, while some lawyers boast of specific certifications they have received. We want to know what to look for when choosing a lawyer, what specialties mean and if they hold any validity. To find out, we’re turning to our panel of lawyers, many of whom are proud to carry their own specialties.
