Things to Look for in a Good Attorney

There are many factors that go into choosing a personal injury attorney—and there are thousands of attorneys in New York and New Jersey to choose from. As such, the process of selecting a law firm can be understandably daunting.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing an attorney to represent you in your personal injury case:

  • Experience Counts: Look for an attorney/law firm that not only has many years of legal experience but specific experience in your particular type of case. Each area of law, from medical malpractice to birth injuries to car accidents, is different; you need someone who knows how the process works and how to advocate for you.
  • Results Matter: Just as you want an attorney with the right experience, you also want an attorney who can demonstrate a record of success. A firm with a proven track record is a firm that knows what it takes to win. You want to feel confident that your legal team can not only handle your claim but can also obtain the best possible outcome.
  • Read Reviews: Client reviews and testimonials are one of the best ways to learn more about a firm. Read reviews from past clients about any potential law firms or attorneys you may wish to hire. Look for insights into how the firm operates, how clients are treated, and what you can expect from the process.
  • Get Personal: At Simonson Goodman Platzer PC, we believe that every individual deserves personalized service and attention. When looking for a law firm to represent you, look for one that is selective in which cases they accept and one that provides the level of service you deserve and desire.
