Finding the Best Lawyers

A lawyer is someone who has a highly detailed knowledge of the law and who has experience and skill in representing client in court and speaking in front of a judge and jury. If you find yourself in court for any reason, or in a position where you intend to take someone to court and to press charges, settle a divorce or get yourself out of a contract, then you will need to make sure that you have the best lawyers on your side.

Without lawyers we are basically ‘sitting ducks’ in a court of law or any legal dispute. Most of us will have very little knowledge of the details of the law, of the ins and outs or of the various loopholes. This means that other can use these against us unless we have lawyers to defend us, and it means that we are unable to use them ourselves even if they might have been able to help us win our case.

So in short using the best lawyers is a huge investment that can help you in many ways – whether it helps you to get out of an uncomfortable contract, whether it helps you to improve your working conditions, whether it helps you to keep your assets in a divorce, or whether it helps you to retain the legal rights pertaining to your work or an intellectual property. In any case you will save yourself a huge amount of money and inconvenience and this means that it is more than worth spending some time and money up front now in hiring a good lawyer.

But with so many lawyers out there, how do you go about finding the best lawyers? How do you recognize them when you find them?

Well thanks to the internet we now have access to a huge range of law firms and lawyers from the comfort of our front rooms. This allows us to browse the sites of many different legal experts and to compare the best lawyer s and law firms directly.

When searching online, you should first and foremost look for lawyers that will deal specifically with your area of the law. If you are in legal disputes with your employers, then you will need to use an employment lawyer for instance, and if you are going through divorce then you will benefit most from divorce lawyers.

The reason for this is that lawyers that specialize will have a lot more intricate knowledge regarding the area you are interested in. They will know more of the loopholes, more of the laws, and more of the case histories that relate to you. If you used a general lawyer then they would have good breadth of knowledge, but they would understand relatively little about each topic compared to specialists.

You should then look around the site of the lawyers to ascertain which are the best lawyers. Look for sites that are well designed and that look professional, and be weary of anything that is poorly designed. Likewise look for good testimonials, and be sure to speak with the lawyers in person on the phone before you decide.

A Conversation With: One Of The Best Lawyers In Dallas, Chad West

Chad was selected as one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas by D Magazine in 2014 and has been repeatedly selected as “Rising Star” by Texas Monthly (Thomson Reuters) in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.

AE: What drew you to working in the legal field?

CW: Working in the legal field peaked my interest while serving my country by serving in the military. The importance of helping those that cannot help them-selves was very important to me.

AE: You have had your own law firm since 2011, what are the significant differences being an owner of a law firm versus working as an attorney for one?

CW: Owning my own law firm requires a great deal of time and energy to make sure everything runs smoothly and the bills get paid. However, the personal reward is much greater. Being in a small law firm in such a community based part out of Dallas give me the ability to connect with each client to make sure we are getting them the best results possible.

AE: Prior to becoming an attorney you served in the military and had a very distinguished career going, what made you decide to leave military service?

CW: I wouldn’t trade my time in the U.S. Army for anything. It was a time of my life that really shaped who I am as a man and as a leader. I left because I wanted to start my own business that focuses on helping people, and I saw the legal field as a way to do so.

AE: How did your time in the military prepare you for running your own law firm?

CW: The military prepared me for running my own law firm by instilling dedication to a greater good, defending freedoms, and working hard.

AE: You are a member of a number of organizations, do you think leaders and business owners have an obligation to get involved and give back to the community?

CW: Without giving back to your community, you should not expect to receive much from it. As a small business in the Oak Cliff part of Dallas, it is a privilege to be able to give back to such a vibrant and evolving area.

AE: The workplace has changed drastically over the last 20 years, do you think what motivates leaders and their teams have changed?

CW: Absolutely. The millennials are swarming the workplace, and the motivations and personalities are completely different than my generations (Gen X’s) motivations.

AE: How do you empower, inspire or motivate others in the workplace?

CW: I hire the best people and do my very best to give them everything they need to succeed. I avoid micromanaging whenever possible.

AE: What is one characteristic that you believe every leader should possess?

CW: The ability to recognize your own weaknesses and needs to put a team together to turn one’s weaknesses into strengths.

AE: What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader?

CW: To continue to grow and develop as a leader I look for new ways to challenge myself both professionally and personally. Finding new challenges to take on is a good way to remind ourselves to remain humble.

AE: Have there been any role models for you?

CW: Both of my parents, for very different reasons. My mother taught me compassion and the love for learning. My father showed me the benefits of owning my own business. Both taught me the value of hard work.

AE: What do you attribute your success to?

CW: Success would not be possible without a good support system. My family and friends are my biggest supporters.

AE: If you could give one piece of leadership advice to your employees what would that be?

CW: Work on your most brain-intensive projects first thing in the morning, as you are at your best when you first get to work.

AE: What advice would you give someone going into a leadership position for the first time?

CW: Roll up your sleeves and get ready to work hard. Don’t sweat the small stuff and never lower your standards.

AE: What has been your greatest professional accomplishment so far as a leader?

CW: Starting my own business. Nothing beats it!

AE: What is something people don’t generally know about you as a leader?

CW: I absolutely hate public speaking, but I work hard to overcome it.

AE: If you could have a conversation with one leader alive or dear who would that be?

CW: Thomas Jefferson.

AE: What would you want to ask them?

CW: He was a multiple-business owner and brilliant politician and was ahead of his time in many ways. I would want to know what motivated him and how he became the leader he portrayed to the world.

AE: They say anyone can become a leader, in your opinion do you believe that?

CW: Absolutely!

AE: What do you want your leadership legacy to be?

CW: I want to leave a legacy of achieving high quality results and making a difference in the lives of others. Helping to start a charity 5k, Dash for the Beads, was a great way for me to give back and help a large number of people while focusing on healthy ways of life.

AE: What is next for you?

My firm is expanding to South Dallas, a second location, and we are welcoming two new lawyers to the firm in June and November of 2015, which I’m really excited about! In the non-legal world, I’m opening an express car wash with my family in Ennis, TX in early 2016.

CW: Just do it!
