Realize that if the lawyer seems too good to be true, (s)he probably is. In every profession there are a few bad people and the legal profession is no exception. While most lawyers are honest, you should still take care to be sure the one you choose has a good reputation. Use Google to search for the lawyers you have interviewed. When people are unhappy they tend to post their complaints online. Beware if you are being told your lawsuit is an open and shut case. No lawyer should EVER guarantee a happy result in a lawsuit. Every lawsuit comes with some risk. If you suspect the lawyer is telling you only what you want to hear, you are probably right.
