Hiring a personal injury lawyer:

  • Find the right lawyer
  • Lawyer’s reputation
  • Dedication
  • Lawyer’s experience, skill, ability and track record

Find the right lawyer

There are many lawyers to choose from with a wide range of personality, skill and experience. Some lawyers are eager to take a case to court, and others are more inclined to reach a quick settlement. Some lawyers have a coarse, intimidating way of getting their clients results, and others are focused on the mental and emotional well-being of the person in their care. Most importantly, make sure your lawyer specializes in the case you are dealing with.

Lawyer’s reputation

How do other lawyers and the general public view the attorney you would like to work with? You can learn a lot by asking those who have worked with the lawyer what to expect. It may also be important to you that you work with someone who has given back to the community. Take some time and research the internet for testimonials or case studies.


You want to work with a lawyer that is dedicated to your case and can be with you every step of the way. A dedicated lawyer will be responsive and answer any questions you may have along the way.
