Choosing a Milford Attorney that is the Most Qualified to Handle Your Case

By: Christopher Brown | Jul 29 2013 | 524 words | 2017 hits

If you need to hire a Milford Attorney, it is important to understand the different types of lawyers available. Although there are two basic categories for lawyers, criminal or civil, each of these categories has several subcategories. Civil attorneys typically deal with issues such divorce, adoption and other domestic issues, whereas a criminal attorney typically handles cases such as corporate law, felony offenses or personal injury. When a case goes to court, there is a defense attorney and an Oakland County prosecuting attorney present throughout the court process.

Family Law

Family law attorneys handle a vast array of cases, including child visitation, domestic violence, paternity suits, divorce and adoption. An Oakland County divorce attorney is considered to be a family attorney; however, he specializes in handling divorce cases. For example, if you have been served with divorce papers and need an attorney, you will need an Oakland County divorce lawyer, but if you want to petition for an adoption, you should hire a family attorney that specializes in adoption cases.

Criminal Law

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, such as murder, sexual assault or fraud you will need to hire a criminal attorney to defend you. There are many criminal attorneys who practice criminal law, but have a specific type of crime they specialize in, so if you need a criminal lawyer, it is best to hire someone who specializes in your type of case. On the other hand, if you are the victim of a crime, you will be represented by a prosecuting attorney. In the majority of cases, a prosecuting attorney is hired by the state or county in which the crime occurs and the victim is not responsible for seeking out the lawyer.

Personal Injury Law

Oakland County lawyers who practice personal injury law have several sub-specialties that they may specialize in. Personal injury cases may include, but is certainly not limited to:

- Medical malpractice
- Slip and fall
- Motorcycle accidents
- Automobile accidents
- Semi-truck accidents
- Work related accidents
- Wrongful death

If you need to hire a personal injury lawyer, it is important to keep in mind that the majority of personal injury attorneys specialize in one or two particular types of personal injury. For example, if you have been injured, either emotionally or physically as the result of a defective medical procedure, product or misdiagnosis, you would hire a personal injury lawyer who specializes in medical malpractice.

A legal matter is typically a serious situation, so it is vital that you hire a Milford attorney that can provide the best representation for your particular case. If you are not sure of how to find a good attorney, the first place to start is by asking friends, family and coworkers for referrals. You should always verify that the lawyer you are considering has a current license to practice law and that he has a good reputation for winning cases. One of the easiest ways to verify an attorney's status is through the Legal Bar Association website or you can call them directly. When you hire an attorney, you will be required to divulge a lot of personal information, so choose an attorney that you are completely comfortable with.
