    CHICAGO, IL, June 02, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If you are looking for an attorney in Chicago, you have probably noticed how very many of them there are in the city. So how can you figure out which one is the right one for you? Here are a few factors to keep in mind.

The Right Kind of Attorney

There are many kinds of attorneys out there, including patent attorneys, divorce attorneys, and others. You have to make sure you are working with the right type of attorney for you. Technically, attorneys are not generally allowed to be specialists, but they tend to advertise the types of cases they like to take. For example, if you are looking for a personal injury attorney, you want to make sure that the ones you are considering advertise that they take those kinds of cases. Some attorneys prefer to take motor vehicle accidents, while others favor medical malpractice. You have to find one with the expertise and dedication necessary to take on your case.

The Right Size of Firm

Law firms come in many sizes, from the very small one-attorney office to large international confederations of lawyers. Many law firms have offices across the country, allowing them to pool resources to take on large cases. However, these law firms may not be interested in small cases, and even if they take a case, you may not be able to get the personal attention you desire from the law firm. It's important to pick the right size law firm for you.

The Right Approach

Some attorneys are fighters, and others are compromisers. Both can get good results for their clients. Depending on the goals of your case, you may want one or the other, and it's important to know beforehand which type you are dealing with. If you are looking for an attorney to punish those who hurt you, a fighter is generally the best choice, but if you are most concerned with taking care of your family, a compromiser might give you the best results.

Do They Value You--Or the Money?

Finally, it's important to honestly appraise your lawyer's intentions. Is your lawyer looking at you as just the ticket to a paycheck, or is your lawyer thinking about how to take care of you after your accident. Big verdicts pay lawyers very well, but they do not always compensate you fully. Make sure any potential lawyer has your best interests at heart.
