Who's The Best Personal Injury Attorney? That's tough, but here are some of the things you should look for.
A Solid Education
There are many attorneys out there, and you obviously want to hire someone who is a graduate of a solid and well known school.
Experience Handling Your Type of Case
You want someone with real experience in the personal injury field; you don't want to be someone else's training ground.
Attorney "Face Time"
Most importantly, you want an attorney who will give you the time that is needed to properly get to know you and your case. This means you need "face time" with the lawyer who will represent you throughout the case, including at trial, if trial is necessary. You don't want to be kept from personal meetings with your lawyer.
