How Can I Choose The Right Lawyer?

In today's world the lawyer who was a general practitioner and would represent you in every situation is rapidly vanishing. Due to the increasing complexity of the law, most lawyers today focus their efforts upon a few selected areas of the law. The lawyer who handled your friend's divorce will, in all likelihood, not even attempt to handle a serious personal injury claim.

So how do you choose the right lawyer? All lawyers in this state must be licensed. You can verify the lawyer's status by calling the State Bar Association. But that, unfortunately, doesn't tell you a lot about the individual lawyer. There are a lot of lawyers who will handle personal injury cases. Some lawyers handle a few cases while others focus upon this area of the law, and the way in which they handle cases varies greatly. Some lawyers handle only simple accident cases and others will only handle your case if it looks like the case will settle easily, without going to trial.

We handle a substantial number of personal injury cases, and have been doing so for a number of years. Each client is treated with respect and as an individual.

We prepare each case carefully for trial or arbitration. As a practical matter and largely as a result of thorough preparation, most of our cases are settled before trial.

We believe that most people are genuinely interested in having their case resolved as soon as possible and for a fair value. For that reason, we invest substantial time and energy in preparing and negotiating the case. But, if we can't reach a fair value, we are prepared to file the lawsuit and pursue the case through arbitration or trial.

But, even beyond the lawyer's skills and abilities, you need a lawyer you feel comfortable with, can trust, and in which you have the most confidence.

We invite you to meet with us personally to find out if we are the right attorneys for you.
