The most worthy legal advice often comes from the most experienced council. For instance, if you have an awkward or difficult legal problem its best to try to find a lawyer who has handed that issue before. How do you know if they handled the issue before? The best way is to interview the attorney and get real life examples of similar cases. It is time consuming, but rewarding in many ways.
When you actually meet with the attorney be prepared. Bring any legal notices you have received, and spend time to understand specifics of your situation. That way the attorney can show what they can do for you in a specific way. The attorney will offer guidance of your situation, and be of the most value.
