Choosing the right lawyer can be a daunting task. The legal landscape is confusing, and often intimidating. This is especially true if this is your first foray into the law. Many clients feel that once they have retained a lawyer they are stuck and cannot seek out another point of view. Here are some reasons why you should seek out a second opinion.
A Second Opinion is Your Right
The Law Society of Upper Canada allows lawyers to offer a second opinion to an individual who has already retained a lawyer. This enables the client to make an informed decision regarding their legal representation while ensuring their lawyer is the best fit.
A Second Opinion Means Peace of Mind
When you need a lawyer, you need peace of mind. It is often difficult for clients to know whether or not their lawyer is effectively advocating on their behalf, which is why it is important to seek an outside opinion before it is too late. As a client, it is important to remember that you are the customer, and that you have the power to hire the best fit.
Good Lawyers are Comfortable with their Level of Service
Your lawyer’s duty is to give you value for your money. The medical and insurance fields often encourage patients to seek a second, or even third opinion before undergoing certain procedures. This process should be welcomed and encouraged by the legal community. Overall, it is never wrong to question your attorney’s doings. In fact, at Millars Law we encourage it.
