How to Find an Attorney Who Supports Members of the LGBTQ+ Community

Choosing the Right Lawyer

If you need a lawyer, you will want to make sure you choose the best attorney for your unique needs. To ensure you select the best attorney possible, you will want to do some research. First, you should make sure a potential attorney is licensed to practice law. You will also want to see if they have had any disciplinary action taken against them. To check if they are eligible to practice law, you can visit the Texas Bar Association website. There, you can also find lawyers and see whether the lawyers have ever been disciplined.

Questions to Ask a Potential Lawyer

If you are satisfied with what you learned in your research, the next step is to set up a consultation with the potential attorney to see if they would be a good fit. During your initial meeting, you will want to ask the lawyer some questions. The questions below will help you determine whether the attorney is the right one for you.

  • How many LGBTQ+ clients have you represented? (You can also get more specific. For example, you can ask them how many transgender clients they have worked with.)
  • How many LGBTQ+ clients have you represented in cases similar to mine?
  • How many years have you been practicing law?
  • Have you handled cases similar to mine?
  • How often can I expect updates from you?
  • Will I be working primarily with you or someone else in your office?
  • What kind of participation will you need from me?
  • How will you approach my case?
  • What is the likely outcome of my case?
  • What are your fees and costs, and how are they billed?

The answers to these questions and any others that come up during your first meeting will give you a good idea of who the attorney is, whether they are qualified to handle a case like yours, and what it would be like to work with them. All legal matters are serious and, therefore, require a skilled attorney. Interviewing the lawyer and asking these questions will ensure they are a good fit.
