Making sure that you obtain the best suited injury lawyers and car accident lawyers is an important decision.
In our humble opinion, you should confirm the following before hiring a lawyer:
1. How has the lawyer been ranked and rated by Courts. Ask the lawyer to see decisions that he or she has argued. Ask them to show you what Judges have said about them. Ask them how their law firm ranks and whether it is ranked in lexpert or the best lawyers directory. Ask them how many lawyers are in their firm and how long the firm has been around.
2. How is the law firm perceived among other lawyers and the community in general? If the law firm has a bad reputation then you may not want that taint to possibly impact on your case. You may also want to know how insurance companies regard the law firm. Call lawyers in other practice areas and ask them about the reputation of the law firm that you are considering.
3. The last thing that you should do is consider whether the lawyer that you are speaking with gives you that “honest feeling”. You want a lawyer that is best suited to you and who understands what you are going through.
