These days, it seems like everywhere we look we are bombarded with television, phone book and other marketing by lawyers who claim to specialize in representing clients with personal injuries. Like anything in life, looks can be deceiving. If you are hiring a personal injury attorney based solely upon a television commercial, a billboard, a phone book advertisement or a direct mail solicitation, you are making a potentially huge mistake. The amount a lawyer invests in marketing does not suggest they are the right lawyer for you. We have all seen the TV ads with a celebrity endorsing a lawyer on TV; but remember that same celebrity probably shoots dozens of those commercials in a day and knows absolutely nothing about the qualifications of those lawyers using this paid actor in their commercials. What do you think Robert Vaughn knows about finding a good lawyer?
Hiring a lawyer is too important a decision to leave to chance, and hiring a lawyer because they have the best commercial is not a smart method of selecting your lawyer. That is like picking a football team to win because you like the color of their helmets. You and your family should hire an attorney with the experience, skills and resources to competently handle your case. You want someone who is a skilled advocate fighting for you. If you need a lawyer, then why not hire a lawyer who is among the top lawyers in our region? Not all lawyers are created equal. You should choose carefully and hire a trial lawyer who has years of experience in an actual courtroom and other essential areas of this type of law. For the fees that you will pay, you deserve a tough advocate and skilled negotiator who has proven he knows how to build a winning case.
Many people do not realize that you can and should expect to have all of these qualities in your attorney. And you can hire this kind of top quality lawyer for the same fee that you would be paying for those lawyers who are inexperienced, have never tried a case, or settle all of their cases. Choose a lawyer who is known and respected by their opponents. Judges should appreciate the way your attorney handles their cases. And, you want a lawyer that insurance companies know is a tough opponent; one who will not be pressured into a bad settlement. Don’t kid yourself – insurance companies know exactly which lawyers will go to battle for their client when the offer is not acceptable.
If you are considering hiring a lawyer, it is important to do your research and ask the right questions. Injury victims and families who have lost loved ones have to be very careful that they do not get hurt a second time by making decisions early in the case that can wreck their case. At Larson Law Firm, we get tired of seeing good people disappointed because they hired the lawyer with the clever advertising, instead of hiring a great trial attorney who is a true advocate for his clients.
