"I know my office can help you, and let me explain why. We are aggressive and well staffed to handle your case. But there are other important reasons why you should call to talk to me. First, my office gives excellent customer service to our clients. If you call my office and need to talk to an attorney, if we are not available to talk to you then, you will have an appointment scheduled to talk to an attorney. We are never too busy for you. Second, every client gets a monthly update letter telling them what has occurred over the past month, what is going to happen in the future, and what we need from the client. These two things by themselves set as far apart from any law firm in the area. Beyond our excellent customer service, the thing that makes a better than other firms is that we have a proven success rate. We get good results for our clients that are facing tough situations. We work the case, prepare hard, and are aggressive against the opposition. I have been practicing law since 2004. I have been successful by treating my clients like valued customers, by not overcharging for my representation, and by aggressively representing my clients. The bottom line is that I will fight for you to get the best result possible. I will treat you fairly and with respect. That is what sets me apart from the other attorneys. Please consider hiring my firm to represent you. If you want to talk to me personally to interview me, please call now. I love to help people! Growing up, my mother always helped people with their taxes, even those who were struggling. She did it affordably and competently. What a good role model my mom was."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.
