This one comes by way of Peter J. Gregory, one of the best follows on Twitter in terms of Rochester attorneys (other than yours truly, of course).

This article from Forbes is written by an entrepreneur and discusses some of the mistakes she has made over the years in terms of trying to hire the least expensive attorney over someone who may cost more but delivers better value.

While the article is primarily in the context of contract or business law, a lot of the points the author make hold true for any kind of attorney-client relationship in that trust, communication and an attorney’s capability to handle your matter are of primary importance when selecting counsel.  These factors certainly outweigh potential savings in the short term if you select an attorney who, although less expensive, may not be the right fit for you.

I’d certainly be honored to be considered to represent you.  Please contact me if I can be of assistance.
