Hiring a Lawyer
How do you know if you a hiring a competent and well-regarded lawyer? There are several ways. One way is determine if the lawyer has achieved board certification in both DWI defense and criminal defense. The second way is to determine if the lawyer has been invited to teach other lawyers at continuing legal education seminars. The third way is to look at what former clients say about the lawyer.
The fourth way is to determine what other lawyers say about the lawyer. Do other lawyers endorse that lawyer by way of voting them Lawyer of the Year, or name them to the list of Best Lawyers in America and Texas Super Lawyers?
The fifth way is to determine if other lawyers unintentionally endorse another lawyer. Some lawyers intentionally purchase "internet ad words" in the name of a successful lawyer with an excellent reputation in an attempt to attract and lure potential clients away that they simply would not attract on their own merit and reputation. These lawyers unintentionally endorse and highlight the credentials and integrity of the lawyer they are trying to emulate. And it speaks volumes about the reputation, integrity and credentials of Doug Murphy.
