How to Choose a Lawyer And Win Your Case

I have rarely finished self-help book, but Rajesh Talwar has changed it for me. 'How to Choose a Lawyer - And Wind Your Case' was written with such an easy language (not talking about English) with help of examples I was not just able to finish it, but I devoured it in 3 sittings. Big achievement for me.

Talking about blurb of the book
If you wish to win a legal case, a part of the story is about engaging the right lawyer and handling him well. This book explains in an easy-to-understand style how to choose the right lawyer and how to improve the odds of winning your case. When to file a case... and when not to do so What does winning a case really mean When not filing a case can be 'winning' a case When compromising with the other side is a win-win case How you can help your lawyer win your case What to look for in a lawyer - and how to find one How best to utilise your lawyer's skills - and how much to pay him What you can expect from your lawyer - and what you shouldn't Professional rules of conduct every lawyer is bound to adhere to A lawyer's duties to his clients How to avoid unscrupulous lawyers Simply written and with examples of some high-profile contemporary cases, this book will be a big help for anyone caught up in litigation.
Author has properly discussed following points in this book
  • When will we need a lawyer?
  • What are roles of a lawyer?
  • What should be the qualification of lawyer?
  • How to choose a lawyer?
  • Types of lawyer and their requirement in system
  • When to fight a case and when not to?
  • What are dos and don'ts when your case is going in court?
  • Payment settlement with lawyer.
  • Where to complain about lawyer and how?
I would say author has given more importance to "what not to do" over "what to do". Book was written with keeping normal people in mind. Author has tried his best to explain with example where he has quoted lines from law book. It's really an informative and helpful book.
