Legal experience. Life experience. There is no substitute for either.
I'm attorney Barry Rigby in Orlando, Florida.
If you need to hire a lawyer, look for someone with legal experience. The law is a popular second career. Don't assume that every middle aged lawyer has been a lawyer for several years. I have over 25 years of experience as a lawyer, in a variety of practice areas. This gives me the background and perspective to assess your legal needs. Many times, an experienced lawyer can provide a quick and simple solution or strategy, when a new attorney, though less expensive on an hourly basis, may spend several hours finding an answer.
I believe that it's also important that a lawyer understands what the client is going through. There are many good attorneys who have never been a party to litigation of any type. While that's fortunate for them, I don't believe that they appreciate their clients' needs as well as those of us who have - unfortunately -had the need to hire an attorney. Being a client gives attorneys new insight, and greater appreciation, for the stress and fear that a lawsuit or legal problem creates.
Thank you for visiting my web site. If you are in need of a lawyer, I wish you the best outcome for your situation, no matter who you hire to assist you. -- Barry Rigby
