Canoga Park 401k Information

401k Retirement Plan

Many employers contribute a certain percentage to an employee's contributions to a 401k retirement plan that is managed by a third party. The contributions are not taxed until they are distributed. Most employers have certain conditions and eligibility requirements in place for their plans.

Why a 401k Lawyer Is Important

Retirement plans are long term investments, but a person's situation can change when hardships, illness, or accidents intervene. You may need to take money out of your 401k plan which generally has punitive results such as fees. Before withdrawing money, consult with a Canoga Park lawyer who handles 401k issues. You may be entitled to an exception to avoid the penalties.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
