    If circumstances have required you to get involved in litigation, you may find the process of selecting an attorney to be overwhelming. There are, however, some steps you can take to make the selection process a bit easier.

    First, you should consider hiring someone who emphasizes in your type of case. If you had an automobile accident, consider hiring an attorney who practices personal injury law and preferably one with a track record of success in car accident cases. We have a proven track record in car accident cases.

    Since you and the attorney you choose will be working very closely together, it’s important to choose someone with whom you feel comfortable. For us, this factor works both ways- we only represent people with whom we are comfortable as well. If we can’t trust our client, a jury won’t trust our client. How long has the attorney been practicing law? We have over 20 years of experience. Has the attorney ever handled a case like yours before? We’ve handled all types of personal injury and premise liability cases, especially car accidents, slip and falls, and other negligence cases. How much are fees and how are they paid? Does the attorney seem like he or she is concerned about your case? Does the attorney seem knowledgeable about the area of law? Does the attorney articulate himself clearly and effectively? Does he have a credible and trustworthy demeanor? Remember, a judge or jury may be making the same assessments down the line.
