Determine Your Needs
The following is my opinion: The lawyer has extensive experience. He does listen and explain well. He works on individual cases and class actions. If you are someone who has special needs or likes to have more control over the means and objectives then you should screen him more carefully and I suggest getting everything in detail in the contract up front.
