But that can make it hard to pick a good lawyer you can trust if you have been hurt in a car wreck. Everyone you know can tell you about a good restaurant, hardware store, or movie theater. But not many people have personal experience with lawyers.
What do you need to know to pick a good lawyer? Here are some tips:
- Be careful if they are SUPER-excited to sign up your case: some lawyers will sign any case to make a fee, even if it’s not in the client’s best interests;
- Be careful if they don’t have an office or a network of lawyers in the state where you were hurt: the laws of that state will control what happens in your case;
- Ask if they have tried cases in front of juries: if not, insurance adjusters simply won’t take them as seriously as they do lawyers that try cases;
- Ask if they’ve been rated by their peers or judges for their legal ability and honesty; if not, they probably haven’t been around very long, and may not have the experience you need.
