July 11, 2014
Picking up from where we left off in 6 Tips for Hiring the Best Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Case (Pt. 1), here we will continue discussing some additional things you can do when you are trying to select the best personal injury attorney to represent you and your claim.
Tip 3 – Look for reviews from former clients.
Once you’ve checked that the personal injury lawyers who you are considering are all in good standing with the state bar association, take some time to read reviews that former clients have written about each lawyer.
In this step, checking out the reviews posted on the attorneys’ websites can be helpful; however, looking for reviews posted at third-party sites can also be beneficial, as these will likely provide a more well-rounded perspective of what you can expect in terms of a lawyer’s:
- Responsiveness to your needs
- Effectiveness at resolving cases
- Ability to foster confidence in his clients.
Essentially, researching what former clients have said about their experiences can give you some insight as to what you can likely expect when you work with a given attorney.
Tip 4 – Call your top choices and talk to them.
After further narrowing down your choices of potential attorneys based on former clients’ reviews, it’ll be time to contact your top choices and talk to them directly. Talking to an attorney about your case and getting a feel for him or her over the phone can help you figure out if you feel comfortable meeting with a lawyer or if maybe you should look to one of your other options instead.
Be sure to check out the upcoming conclusion to this blog for some final tips regarding hiring the best personal injury lawyer to represent you and your claim.
