Helping You Pick a Personal Injury Attorney

When you are hurt in an accident you want to get the best medical care and fair compensation for your injuries. It can be confusing to decide which attorney can help you reach these important goals. Several factors should factor into your decision and you should feel completely comfortable with your choice. Our goal is to meet your needs in a way satisfactory to you, to give you individualized attention and to answer your questions thoroughly and accurately.

Tips to making the right choice include:

  • Ask the attorney about his experience and trial level. Our firm was founded over a decade ago by four experienced trial attorneys and has grown to include nearly a dozen skilled attorneys. Our experience includes representing hurt people, and also representing companies. Because we have experience on both sides of the fence, we are in a position to advise you what to expect from the other side.
  • Schedule an initial appointment. Our office offers free initial consultations to discuss your case.
  • Ask about the possibility of settlement vs. trial. Not all cases are well suited for trial, for those that aren’t we engage in vigorous settlement negotiations on your behalf. Likewise, if the facts of your case are such that a trial would be beneficial, we advise you as such and prepare the matter accordingly. Factors that may lean towards settlement rather than trial might include past history of accidents and existence of prior injuries.

The choice of attorney is a personal one, and we understand the tough decision you need to make. Receiving adequate compensation when you have been injured by another consumes a significant amount of your thoughts. We know you need to feel confident about your choice of an attorney. Our experience level and track record of satisfied clients demonstrates our ability to effectively represent you.
