Maui Law Firm

The important questions to ask before hiring a law firm in Maui

Accidents can result in physical injury, disabilities, or even death, and when this is due to negligence or carelessness—it is time to hire a Maui law firm that knows the law in Maui.  The party who caused your accident should be held responsible.

The attorneys at The Law Offices of Tateishi & Tanaka want to advise you on finding the right firm.  Here is a helpful list of general questions that includes:

  • What are your areas of specialization?
  • Have you handled cases like mine before?
  • What was the outcome?
  • Will you be the only attorney who works on the case? If not, who else will work on it?
  • Do you keep current on changes in Maui laws?
  • How long will it take for this case to be resolved?
  • Will you take my case on a contingency fee basis?
  • Are there things I should do to improve my case, or to help you?
  • How will you keep me informed about the progress of my case?
  • If I contact your law office in Maui with questions, how long will you take to return my call?
  • If you are unavailable, whom can I speak to about my case?
  • If I am not happy with a settlement offer and you want to settle, will you go to court anyway?
  • If I am happy with the offer but you think we can win more at trial, will you follow my wishes?
  • Have you ever been disciplined by an ethics committee, or been suspended from the practice of law?  If so, why?

Questions that may be more specific to your case include:

  • Who will pay my medical bills?  Drug bills?  Lost income?  Property damage?  Pain and suffering?
  • What forms and papers do I need to get and fill out?
  • What claim letters need to be sent?
  • How many insurance companies need to be notified?
  • Do you handle those matters for me?
