So You Are About To Choose A Lawyer

Comments Off

During the last few years, I have met some of the nicest people ever during interviews with potential new clients. These conferences are always different because of the differences in the potential claims and injuries and the personalities in the room. But, for some reason, many of these conferences have been especially unique and satisfying.

It may be that more victims are preparing themselves for the interview/conference by reading articles like this one by Attorney Gerry Oginski from New York. Gerry does a fine job educating a victim or a victim’s family so a better selection of a competent attorney can be made. It is worth a read.

Top Ten Things To Look For In A Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury Attorney

Being injured is no fun. Not knowing where to turn, who to trust, and what to do about your medical bills is frustrating.

Most people will never need a malpractice lawyer. That’s good. Most people will never need a personal injury lawyer, and that’s good too. But there are folks who do get injured because of someone else’s fault, and they’re the ones who DO need an attorney.

How do you choose among the many lawyers who advertise for your attention? The answer is not an easy one. Remember, not every lawyer advertises. Of those that do, not all of them are trial lawyers. You must ask.

I would add a couple of other things to look for in an attorney who will be entrusted with an important case. Try to determine the road the attorney has traveled in his life and the philosophy he has developed on the journey. And, try to understand how he relates to people, empathizes with them, communicates with them, cares for them.

I know these matters are not nearly as easy to explore as simply determining how long an attorney has been in practice. To explore them requires time and a conversation rather than simply attending a lecture or conducting a question and answer session.

From among the competent attorneys a victim must try to select an attorney who cares.
