THINK Magazine, South Florida’s luxury lifestyle magazine that focuses on the best in real estate, travel, local businessmen and women, products and services, recently featured Fort Lauderdale Criminal Attorney, Gary Ostrow, for the feature, entitled, “How to Choose The Right Attorney.” The article was released on February 28, 2014, and discussed what someone should look for when seeking appropriate legal representation for his or her specific legal issue.
At some point in life, everyone will need a lawyer. Choosing the right lawyer could drastically and favorably change the outcome of your legal issue. So, what qualities should someone seek when choosing legal counsel? As Criminal Attorney Gary Ostrow explained to THINK, looking for a compassionate lawyer should be at the top of your list. “Your lawyer should be willing to hold your hand, so to speak,” he shared with the magazine, adding the lawyer should also be able to provide peace of mind to the client. “If you don’t feel any better when you walk out of here (the consultation), you’re wasting your money.”
Gary Ostrow - Compassion, Experience and Communication Key Ingredients to Selecting the Right Attorney
In addition to compassion, experience and willingness to communicate are just as important when seeking legal representation. Ostrow, who has over 30 years of experience, states when interviewing for a lawyer, find out the number of cases he or she has tried. A good number to keep in mind is a minimum of 30 to 40 cases, though there are lawyers well above this number, such as Ostrow, who has tried between 400 – 500 cases. Also, ask the lawyer if he or she will be available via phone and email, and if they are reachable during nighttime or weekend hours. “Every client has my cell phone number and that is unusual,” Ostrow added to the interview, highlighting his desire to be available to his clients at all times for questions, updates and concerns.
Lastly, Ostrow explained the importance of seeking legal counsel as soon as they become the target of any type of investigation, stating, “Far too many people have been convicted because they didn’t hire counsel during the investigative stage.” Immediately hiring the right legal counsel can prevent you from being arrested or indicted.
