The Right Choice
Often, the decision you make to retain the “right” attorney may be the difference-maker in your case.
In this modern age of technology, the internet provides easy access to a wealth of information about the backgrounds, qualifications, and experiences of hundreds, if not thousands of attorneys. But the internet should be a starting, not an ending point, for your search. Even a qualified, experienced and talented attorney may not be the right fit for you or for your case.
Before you hire an attorney, there is nothing more important than a face-to-face meeting. It is important for you to “size-up” your attorney, to feel comfortable with your attorney, to know that you will be able to openly and freely communicate with your attorney, to know that your attorney feels empathy and compassion for your suffering and to feel comforted and confident that you have retained a zealous advocate who will fight aggressively to vindicate your rights.
Some things to consider in deciding if you are making the right choice:
Trial and Courtroom Experience
The vast majority of personal injury cases that get filed in court never go to trial. Most settle before the case gets before a jury. This is not necessarily a bad thing. A settlement brings closure, finality, and certainty to an unpredictable process, and sometimes spares grieving family members the horror of having to recount and relive a tragedy or loss of a loved one on the witness stand before a jury comprised of total strangers.
But what if you had to go to trial before a jury? Then, one thing is for certain, you not only want but absolutely must have, an experienced trial lawyer standing by your side. You need someone who knows his or her way around a courtroom. You need to know how many jury or bench trials your attorney has tried to verdict. You need to know how often your attorney appears in court and spends time in front of judges and juries. You need to know that your attorney is trial capable. Because in a courtroom, there is no substitute for an experienced trial lawyer.
