Do I still have time to join in?

IS IT TOO LATE?

No, you still have time, but it has been suggested that the court will take cases first come-first serve. So the earlier the better.

HOW SHOULD I PICK A LAWYER?

There are many good lawyers who will do a good job. But some won’t. What should you do? Ask:

  1. Are they BOARD CERTIFIED? You demand that your doctor is. You should also demand that your lawyer is. Less than 4% of lawyers are. To be board certified, you are closely vetted, endorsed by judges and other lawyers and must pass a written test. Do not conclude they are qualified simply because they are a Super Lawyer or Best Lawyer. Those are for-profit companies that have no public purpose. Board certification demonstrates to the public that you are qualified.
  2. TRIALS: Have they tried a bunch of cases in the past? You need someone with trial experience. However, do not require experience in flood cases. Not many has much experience in this area. It’s a novel area that can be handled by an otherwise competent lawyer.
  3. GOOGLE them. Can you learn substantive qualities about them when you google them? Everybody describes how qualified they are, but be sure their experience is backed up with substance: how many trials, past leadership positions, past awards, etc.
  4. TRUST: Do you trust the person you talked to? Will they return your call?
