Choosing An Attorney is an Important Decision

Choosing an attorney is an important decision and should not be based upon advertising alone. It’s important to sit down with the attorney and get a feel for him or her to make sure the relationship is the right fit for your case. Cutrera Law Firm is located in Lee’s Summit, Missouri where we can setup a free 30 minute consultation to review your case.

It’s also a good idea to find out how long the attorney believes the case will take. Obviously, many factors are beyond your attorney’s control, but you should be able to determine a general timeline and what type of resources the attorney will commit to your case. It’s also important to know how you will be kept updated throughout the proceeding. It can be very frustrating if your attorney does not keep you informed on the status of your case. Ask the attorney how he or she plans to communicate with you and how often you can expect a status report.

You can also research the attorney. Has the attorney been recognized by his peers, clients, or professional organizations for his or her skills. You can find out a lot about an attorney online at websites like or Remember, a satisfied former client is almost always your best source of information.
