Find a Sports Law Attorney near Fairhope

Are You an Athlete?

If you are an athlete you may deal with being courted by colleges and universities, pursued by companies that want you to represent their products or perhaps you were injured during a game or suspended from play due to accusations of doping. All of these issues have legal consequences and you should call a Fairhope today to discuss how to protect your legal rights as an athlete.

Athletes Have a Wide Range of Legal Matters

Sports law, or athletes law, covers legal issues that arise in amateur and professional sports, including labor law, contract law, and tort law matters such as defamation and privacy rights. Today’s athletes face many challenges off the field and may have to confront legal issues of doping, contract disputes, game-related injuries that are not properly treated, and tax issues.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it’s possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
