    Answered . Don't try to do it by yourself, and don't do busines with a lawyer who chases your case. If you have a decent case, you will have no trouble finding a good lawyer. Avoid lawyers who make excessive claims for their own wonderfulness or who promise you lots of money.

    Answered . there are some lawyers that do solicit clients. such a practice used to be unethical at least in the states where i practice. some ratings are meaningful, some are not so don't necessarily be impressed. my two cents is that you ignore the lawyers that have solicited you and contact a reputable injury lawyer. if you do not know of one contact the NJ trial lawyers association for a listing in your area or the local county bar association. good luck.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. A reputable attorney is not an ambulance chaser. Typically an attorney will bear the risk of representing you. He/she will pay for costs up front as well. If you recover money he/she will take 1/3. An attorney who takes less is most unusual and you get what you pay for.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You should look for an attorney who is a member of the organization of trial lawyers in your state. Most of the best attorneys belong to the American Association for Justice and the state organization of trial lawyers (New Jersey Association for Justice or the New Jersey Association of Trial Lawyers). While membership is not a guarantee of a quality attorney, your chances of finding an excellent attorney to handle your case is much higher with such an attorney.

    I would stay away from attorneys who are out there soliciting you. Good attorneys do not have to look for clients. Clients come to us.
