The Service to Expect from a Professional Bellingham Attorney

It’s no secret you want the best attorneys on your side when going to court. But what kind of experience does a professional attorney provide? Over the years, we’ve spoken with a number of clients who were disappointed with their previous legal representation. Some met their lawyers just a few minutes before their trial. Others never even met their lawyers at all! Instead, they were defended in court by paralegal assistants.

Unfortunately, many had come to accept this as the standard for attorneys. It shouldn’t be. And this type of behavior is disrespectful of both a client’s time and a client’s situation.

The difference between professional, personal representation and unprepared, phoned-in defense can be thousands of dollars in fines for you or even years served behind bars. The stakes are high. Here’s the experience you should expect from a Bellingham attorney.

A Professional Bellingham Attorney Respects Your Time

A good lawyer is waiting for you at the courthouse, not the other way around. You’ve paid us to represent you—the best lawyers recognize that and treat you as such. In any other business, leaving clients waiting would quickly leave you without any business to speak of. Hold your lawyers to the same standard!

If you’re glancing at your watch outside the court, use the extra time you’ve found yourself with to contact us. It will be the last time you wait.

A Professional Bellingham Attorney Represents You Personally

Once you’re our client, we have a stake in the case. A professional Bellingham attorney represents you personally, because you and your case mean something to them.

Many law firms, ours included, have an amazing team of assistants. But they simply cannot argue for your rights as well as a seasoned attorney can. We have years of experience under our belt and a nuanced understanding of your case.

Make sure your Bellingham attorney is fighting for your future as if it were their own. If they’re not, we will.

A Professional Bellingham Attorney Keeps You Updated

A professional Bellingham attorney keeps you updated on the progress of your case. Too many times, we’ve spoken with people who are completely in the dark on where their case is going. Their lawyer is slow at returning their calls and vague about how the process is working.

Providing our clients with peace of mind is one of the most important things we attorneys can do. In fact, we’re ethically obliged to. You should know where you stand and the steps we’re taking to move your case forward. If your case is ongoing, but you’re not sure where exactly it is that it’s going, find a new lawyer who will tell you.

A Professional Bellingham Attorney Has Experience

There’s simply no substitute for time. The best attorneys have been studying law for years and have a thick catalog of previous cases to draw from. We’re aware of the legal tactics we can use to defend you, what’s worked before with similar trials, and we’ve built a strong network of relationships with other practitioners in the legal community.

The lawyers at Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone are former prosecutors, meaning we can anticipate the arguments that will be used against you and build an effective counter-defense. With 40+ years of experience between us, you’ve got a whole team of professionals by your side.

If you find yourself in legal trouble, hold your Bellingham attorney up to this list and see if they check the boxes. You deserve only the very best legal defense. Anything less isn’t enough for something as important as your rights.
