10 Steps to Find an Experienced Law Firm

Finding the right personal injury law firm for your case may seem daunting, especially now, when every moment counts toward getting the full compensation you deserve. Use the following ten step process, complete with personal injury law tips, to select an experienced personal injury attorney.

  1. Look right away – When looking for a personal injury law firm, speed counts. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to gather evidence, to gather witnesses, to know what the right thing to do is. Start right away.

  2. Identify the location – Personal injury law cases may be filed in the county in which they occurred. If the injury occurred in Newark, contact a Newark personal injury attorney.

  3. Identify the specialization – There are many law firms out there, but for the highest degree of effectiveness, contact one who is particularly experienced in personal injury law.

  4. Identify the sub specialization – Assess if the law firm specializes in your particular form of personal injury law. For example, some firms specialize in auto accidents. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, contact a personal injury law firm with that specific specialization.

  5. Check qualifications – Check if the lawyers have specialty qualifications, such as “Certified Civil Trial Attorney” and “Certified Civil Trial Specialist”. Assure that they are truly experienced personal injury law attorneys.

  6. Check word of mouth reputation – Find out “word of mouth” reputation about a particular firm. Speak with clients who have used the firm. Ask around.

  7. Check online reputation – Assess the reputation of the firm online. Check personal injury law referral networks to see how a firm ranks. Use search engines to assess what people are saying about the firm.

  8. Check history – Check how the personal injury law firm has fared. Have they won their cases?

  9. Check availability – See if the firm is ready to help you, now. Time is of the essence in personal injury law. If they tell you to call back for an appointment, find some other firm.

  10. Check subjective “feel” – Meet with the personal injury lawyer and assess how it feels to work with him or her. Do they make you feel comfortable? Respected? Valued? Or do they make you feel pressured and uneasy. See if it feels right to have them represent you.
