Sooner or later, you may need a lawyer to defend you. It’s easy to think that all you need to do is, go to a law firm, hire a lawyer and let him/her represent you. But it’s certainly not that simple always! Lawyers are numerous, yet picking a good lawyer only constitutes to a small number. Compound this complication with the verity that the success of your case will greatly rely on how well you choose your legal representative. So, if you’re faced with this very daunting task, you have to specifically know who you’re really looking for.
Steven Keeva reminds us in Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life that “[t]o the extent that you enter it as a calling, the practice of law is about hunger – the hunger for resolution; for healing the lives of individuals,… and communities; for enabling society to function harmoniously and productively; and ultimately, for justice.”
Ajax and Whitby are communities that have grown dramatically in recent times. While some injury lawyers have opened offices in the area, there is not the same presence of injury lawyers as there is in larger financial centers like Toronto, Ontario. While you may ultimately choose to retain a lawyer that practices in Ajax or Whitby, it can be a good idea to meet with at least one lawyer in Toronto or the surrounding area to see a contrast between the available law firms and the available resources to invest in your case. Injury cases often require significant financial investments by the law firm, and it can often be important to know whether the law firm has the financial resources necessary to represent you to the conclusion of the lawsuit.
