Do You Deal with International Law?

International law covers many rules, regulations and legal principles regarding rights and duties of countries in relation to one another. When faced with situations involving several countries and their laws, it is best to protect your endeavors with a skilled international law attorney in Prattville.

Different Types of International Law

International law, while generally considered anything dealing with two or more nations, is actually much more complex. There is public international law, which include treaties, international criminal law and humanitarian law as it relates to states and international entities.

Another type of international law is private international law, which focuses on international conflicts and the laws controlling jurisdiction and venue of international disputes. There are also laws that supersede the laws of a particular nation when they conflict with a supranatural organization’s treaty with that nation.

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.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

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.
