How to avoid being scammed by a lawyer?

Always visit with your attorney in person, in their office. If you locate their phone number online, call them to make an appointment. Insist on meeting at their workplace. Finding a lawyer in the phone book may also reduce your chances of getting conned.

If you do meet in person, don't hand over any money before you speak with your attorney. Ask them what they require in order for you to retain their services and make sure that they give you a written fee agreement before they accept your money. Your attorney should provide you with written information about themselves and their office including contact details in case you have questions or problems while you're working with them.

Scammers will often use false promises of high fees to attract potential clients who then end up paying much more than they had anticipated. To avoid this, only work with lawyers that you find through reputable sources such as your local bar association or legal aid.

Finally, if you do end up hiring a lawyer and pay them in advance, be sure to follow through by making payment arrangements before you release information about yourself or your case to your attorney. If you don't, you could be opening yourself up to further scams or even criminal charges.

You should always check with the real person before giving any information about yourself or your business on social media.

You can also be scammed if you accept an invitation to connect with someone who then never contacts you again. It's best not to follow up unless you receive a confirmation from the other party.

This may happen if the other party claims to need help with something but actually wants to steal your identity or scam you some other way. Always be careful whom you give your phone number to and read every email carefully before clicking on any links!
