Starting your own business is a big deal, and choosing the right team to help you start or expand your business is equally as important. When it comes to navigating the legality of a startup, choosing the best attorney for your business is an important decision.
Raiff Representation is here to help you learn what questions to ask and what factors to consider when deciding on the best legal support for your business.
Many attorneys offer free or paid consultations, so it is important to understand the offerings of a particular law firm beforehand. Raiff Representation offers a free 30-minute consultation for both business and family law-related matters.
The purpose of a consultation is for both parties to get to know each other, to strategize and understand what solutions are available, and to determine whether or not it may be the right fit for both sides. Raiff Representation strives to provide helpful information and boost your confidence to progress towards your business goals.
Some things to consider when choosing an attorney:
- Does the attorney have prior experience with what you are seeking help for?
- Is the attorney up front and honest about your possibilities of success and cost?
- Do you have a good rapport with the attorney? Do you feel that your case is important to them?
- Do you trust them with the legal guidance of your business?
- How familiar is your attorney with the specific niche where your business operates?
Choosing An Attorney
Another important factor to consider when choosing a lawyer is who you will actually be working with. At larger firms, it is common for the person you are meeting with to not actually be the primary attorney you’ll end up working with.
At Raiff Representation, our small, progressive firm is a single-stop solution that ensures that you get the personalized attention and care that you deserve.
It is important to determine and understand the potential costs associated with your legal matter. Most attorneys ask for a retainer, meaning you pay a certain amount up front. You should have a good understanding of your attorney’s retainer, hourly rate, estimated total cost, how you will be billed, and any other fees you may incur during the process.
Raiff Representation provides cost-effective services in an effort to prevent business owners from depleting their own resources b wasting too much time and energy in their counseling needs.
Our firm is always honest when discussing the potential costs involved in pursuing a result and is realistic in weighing whether the costs may be higher than the worth of the potential result.
If you are considering starting a new business, or have already begun the process, Raiff Representation can help guide you in the right direction. Call or email us today to schedule a one-on-one consultation with a skilled business attorney.
