SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY FEB 8, 2021

For the February 2021 edition of SRQ Magazine, we interviewed 2020 Elite Top Attorney Honoree Matthew Kowtko of Kowtko Law Group, P.A. Below is an excerpt published in the In Conversation marketing feature in which Matthew shares his professional insight with SRQ readers on finding the right attorney.

WHAT TRAITS SHOULD OUR READERS LOOK FOR IN AN ATTORNEY? 

First priority is finding someone who communicates with you, the client. My biggest referral source is from my current clients or former clients. Often times when clients fire their prior lawyer and come to me, the biggest explanation that I hear from them is that their attorney didn't communicate. That's why I built our firm to have skilled lawyers at every turn. My assistant is a barred attorney; my paralegal is a barred attorney. My clients get responses within 24 business hours. When you hire me individually, you get two lawyers on the team, not one. It's important that you can trust in your lawyer, in their experience and expertise. I tell clients regularly in both criminal and family law, "that this is not a battle, it's a war. If you go in to win every single battle, you're likely going to deplete yourself, and you're going to lose the war." This why I say communication because you need to have a lawyer that will explain their entire strategy. That way, when you, as the client, have to make a temporary decision on temporary issues, you will understand that it's part of a long-term strategy to get to a specific end.
