I have interviewed a lawyer from out-of-state and she explained that she will have no problem representing me in Tennessee because she has a private plane and can be here in just a couple hours. Should that concern me?
Some lawyers use the fact that they have private planes as a marketing tool. If you hire such a lawyer, make sure you understand how much you will be charged for use of the private plane during your case. Private plane expenses can be much higher than commercial air travel or ground travel, and you need to know how you will be charged for these flights. Responsible lawyers who use private planes in their law practice will charge you only the cost of what a commercial airline would charge for a pre-purchased, coach ticket on a commercial airline for the same flight.
