This is a basic question that all people should ask lawyers whom they are considering hiring. Yet, none do. A lawyer, like any professional, should have a body of work that they are willing to share and make available to people who consider hiring them. We make our reported case decisions, an entire appellate court transcript, various published books and reports and even a celebrated closing argument available to anyone who wants to see them. Before you hire a lawyer, be sure to ask him to see a sample of his work.
