What should you look for when you’re hiring a personal injury firm?
Hi, I’m Darrell Castle and I’m an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee and I suggest the things you look for when hiring a personal injury firm are very similar to what you look for when hiring any other firm. You look for a lawyer you know, trust and like.
And how do you do determine someone you know, trust and like when you’ve never even met him? Well, go and meet him! That’s the first thing.
Go on the person’s website, read his bio. It’s a very important decision to hire that person, so find someone you like, make an appointment (which you can get for free) and go interview that lawyer about your case. See if it’s somebody that you can relate to; somebody that you like; somebody that you can trust. Because you are going to have to trust his decisions and his judgement in your case many times.
Now, aside from all those things, it’s better if you have a firm that has some experience, age, and wisdom; and coupled with that, some youth – some lawyers that are young and energetic and so forth. Age brings wisdom and youth brings energy – that’s the way it goes. So you want to look for those things of course, and someone who has experience in the type of case you have. So, go and interview that person about your case.
Now, those are two things, but there are other things like the person’s reputation in client service.
Does the person have awards that are displayed on his website and so forth about client service? If you were out in a strange city and going out to dinner with your wife or husband, you might look for reviews from other people who have eaten at that restaurant and see what they have to say. They’d be posted on the website of that restaurant.
So, you do that. You go on the website and look at reviews from what other people have said about him. That is very important. See if other people have used him and had good results and see if they know, like and trust him.
Those are some of the things that you can find on the web when you’re searching for a personal injury attorney.
