Last week, I talked about the importance of an attorney’s personality. This week, I address another top concern in choosing an attorney — the artist’s needs.
Attorneys do different things. Some litigate (sue people), some draft and negotiate contracts. Other attorneys “shop” or try to get clients a deal, while other attorneys have a strict “no shopping” policy. What do you need at this point in your career? What do you think you may need as your career grows? Think about these things and try to find an attorney whose services match your needs.
Many attorneys do not shop, so it is wise to check the attorney’s website or ask the attorney for his/her shopping policy before requesting that the attorney shop you.
Next time, I’ll talk about attorneys with a client base that fit your genre.
