Hiring a lawyer is an important decision — one where you must carefully assess your needs and weigh each choice you make. Factors to consider include:
Does your prospective attorney have the knowledge needed to take care of your legal dispute or transaction? At Thompson and DeVeny Co., L.P.A., our five attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience practicing law. We have tried cases in state and federal courts and can walk you through everything from filing for bankruptcy to adopting a child.
Accessibility is also a topic to discuss when you meet with a firm for the first time. How soon will a lawyer return your phone call? Will he or she share their email address so you can send them a message when questions are keeping you awake at night?
Our lawyers take great pride in being easily accessible to answer your questions or discuss your concerns. If you cannot reach your attorney when you call our office, he will call you back as soon as possible. We also provide prompt responses to emails.
Big city law firms may have impressive addresses, but how much do they know about your area and the day-to-day concerns of your community? Our firm has been located in the same office complex in Dayton since our establishment in 1980. We are a local law firm with a history of serving Dayton and other areas in Ohio. Located a half mile south of the Woodman Drive exit of U.S. 35, we encourage you to come to our office to meet our attorneys and staff members. We provide personal service close to home.
Does your prospective attorney possess in-depth knowledge concerning your legal matter? Going to a lawyer with particular experience in bankruptcy law means you get to work with someone with a background handling cases like yours. Thompson and DeVeny Co., L.P.A. has attorneys who belong to the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, the Thomas F. Waldron American Bankruptcy Law Firm, the Dayton Bar Association's committee for creditor's rights in bankruptcy and other organizations that focus on bankruptcy law.
What do you know about your potential lawyer's professional history? The Supreme Court of Ohio website allows you to look up an attorney to see if he or she has been penalized due to ethics violations so you can be fully aware of their past before you hire them to protect your future. All of the attorneys on our team take pride in adhering to high ethical standards and have clean records serving the community.
