Even if people know they may need some help, they usually don’t know where to go. Good lawyers are not automatically good for you, or your case.
First, what anyone should know, it is a trust based relationship. One can chose the lawyer he wants, and the lawyer is free either to accept or refuse the case. Generally, that happens only when he thinks that he lacks the competence to be efficient, if the case has conflictual issues with his principles, if his time schedule is full and he can’t spare enough time to take good care of your case, and finally, in case of conflict of interest.
There is no such thing as ranking when it comes to lawyers. All of them are seemingly good and qualified. The lawyer’s deontology prevents them from taking a case that concerns a field they do not really master. No lawyer actually can handle all types of cases.
Some specialized lawyers are qualified to deal with particular cases. Before any appointment, one should ask the lawyer if he knows all about the field he needs, and, if so, if he would accept the case.
If you are unhappy with your lawyer, you may change him during the procedure or case progression. In that case, the lawyer must be paid for his work. Besides, this is not actually recommended, since sticking with the same lawyer will help him get familiar with the case and know many decisive elements that surround it.
