What should I look for in hiring a lawyer?

Jan 5, 2024

Hiring a lawyer is a challenging task, and in today’s information-rich world, researching potential lawyers is crucial. Be cautious, as every lawyer has a website, so pay close attention to their past work, trial locations, and the frequency of trials. It’s essential to look beyond settlements and assess whether they were fair values for the specific cases.

The second step is to interview your lawyer. Don’t just let them interview you; take the opportunity to interview them. A crucial insight into trial lawyers is that many who claim to be trial lawyers settle most of their cases. The ability to go to trial is invaluable, and at Worshire Woodward and Atkins, we pride ourselves on our readiness to try cases. Insurance companies and defense lawyers recognize lawyers unafraid to seek fair compensation from a jury, leading to better results for clients.
