In my last post, I covered the importance of hiring an entertainment attorney for your entertainment law needs. Now I will discuss how to choose the right attorney for YOU.
Choosing an attorney is all about the right fit between the attorney and the client. There are a several aspects to consider in deciding what kind of attorney is right for you. I will review these various aspects in the next several weeks over a series of posts.
Aside from being a skilled attorney, personality is the most important aspect in choosing an attorney. Do you actually like this person? Does (s)he explain things to you and counsel you on your career? Does (s)he consider your goals? Does (s)he listen to you? Do you feel comfortable with this person? Do you feel like you can trust this attorney? If the answers to all of these questions are yes, you may have found an attorney that is right for you. If you have answered no to one or more of these questions, you might want to keep looking.
Next time I’ll explain how to tell if an attorney will meet your needs as an artist.
