Location of Attorney and Law Office
One obvious consideration when looking to hire an attorney is the location of his or her office.
For the sake of convenience, most clients prefer to hire an attorney who works close to the client's home or place of employment.
That's a reasonable approach, and can make a lot of sense, but it shouldn't be the sole factor in determining who you hire.
If a client needs legal representation in a foreign state, he should seek an attorney who is licensed to practice in that state.
