What are the criteria to find the right Hungarian lawyer for you?
Obviously two criteria are decisive for you to find the Hungarian lawyer for yourself who will properly and hopefully go with you through your legal issue:
In the first place it is the language. Hungarian language is extremely difficult and most foreigners are quite helpless when it comes to understanding the language properly. This is obviously particularly true in court and in a criminal case – where your freedom might be at stake.
You have to understand what is going on and you has to understand your lawyer and s/he has to understand you. Really understand. As in really really understand. Not just „round about“ understand. Speak to the lawyer a lot before you trust him/her with your representation.
The second is of course how much s/he is competent in the legal field relevant to your case. Ask him/her about the field of specialization and talk about it. Does s/he try to impress you with „big stories“ about other cases? That maybe have nothing to do with yours? How many fields of specialization are named on the website? More than five fields are not realistic to specialise in – for one person. According to my view and experience. And conviction.
Obviously these two criteria are valid all over the world, not only in Hungary.
A good lawyer for you has to speak your language properly and be good in the field where you have the problem. It is that easy.
