  • Do not take referrals too seriously – You can always talk to other individuals who may have experienced the same legal woes as you, but never decide to hire a lawyer based on a single person's recommendation. Different clients will have different experiences with a lawyer's personality and style. To be sure that you are hiring the right person, arrange to personally meet or speak with the lawyer so you can discuss your case with him or her. Remember that it is important that you feel comfortable talking to and working with your lawyer.
  • Look up the lawyer – Verify the experience of the legal services provider as a law firm in Turkey. Some of the best lawyers have more than a decade in practice. Be sure to look up the experience of the lawyer in handling cases that are similar to yours.
  • Find out the specialization of the law firm – It is crucial to keep your needs in check when looking for the best legal services in Turkey.

Their attorneys, translators, consultants, and lawyers have years of experience in solving legal problems of foreigners in the country. Some lawyers are general practitioners while some choose to specialize in certain areas of Turkey's legal system such as family law, criminal law, and consumer law.
  • Choose someone who speaks your language – If you are a foreigner facing legal charges in Turkey, you need to have a lawyer who can easily understand and communicate with you.
