Have they been practicing after graduation? As it is always said, experience is the best teacher. I would never advise you choose a newbie as your lawyer. They should be given a chance, yes, but not to handle the whole matter alone. They can work under a law firm as assistants but not be given the whole case to handle. If possible only go for a lawyer with more than five years of experience. Within the five years, they should have dealt with enough cases to give them the confidence to defend you in court.
Have they been winning?
It is not only about the number of years in the firm but performance. A lawyer is chosen to make you win the case. So, how many cases have they won so far? This is the only thing that assures you of winning the case. If it has been losing and losing, there is no need of paying them to lose; you need a winning team.
Lawyers are in two types, the general lawyers, and specialized lawyers. General lawyers will stand in court to represent almost everything while personal lawyers will only deal with specific cases. Specific lawyers are more expensive to hire. Depending on your case, decide if to choose a specialized or general lawyer. It all depends on the seriousness of the case and how much you have to spend on it.
