I never would have thought about it. but, some people do think they are local when the are really not you would think that people would be honest with you as well as with themselves about where they are from.
I do think that having a local lawyer is important but not as important as you seem to be emphasizing.
i am just trying to emphasise the importance of having someone represent you that understands the local legal system and who is who. moreover having good contacts in the legal system is very important and should never be under rated or ignored.
There are plenty of examples of people hiring lawyers from out of the area because their frien recommended them and did not even consider someone local.
In my opinion you should consider someone local before looking for representation from out of the area.
I wounder why a law should be known & identified with “fraternity or sorority”? I believe that it’s in the mind & what a man is acquinted rather than where you belong. Other things I know that make one a good or better lawyer stating that he or she should be knowledgeble in law,know where to find the law & has the ability to apply the law.
The article has to do with finding the best lawyer for you. People that are members of fraternities and sororities, at least here in the United States create string bonds with each other. This can be a powerful asset in your defense.
Finding a good lawyer is not always about the law and how well they practice the law. Politics and connections can also play a big role in your defense.
That is just a fact of life. The people you know, the strength of your relation ship with them and the number of people you know will always play a big role in your success.
The same is true for how successful a lawyer will be in defending you, what ever the matter may be.
