At the end of my options rope, I found Scott Dennison Law in the phone book and called as a last resort. Several other attorneys who had done work for me or were personally referred said my situation had no solution. Scott talked to me about the details of my problem and then explained a few details that might form the basis of a legal appeal. He was clear it was a long shot, working through judges to overturn decisions they had recently made, but said there was a legal argument. He was clear about the cost and unclear potential for a positive outcome. At the end of my rope, I decided to go ahead and to contract with Dennison Law, knowing the outcome couldn't be guaranteed and this was a firm plucked from a phone book. Let me say that every long-shot judge decision reversal happened! Everything I had hoped for that the other attorneys said was not possible resulted from Scott Dennison's legal work on my behalf. For my situation to resolve, certain documents had to be submitted on certain dates. All the dates were met. Scott had a strategy for writing the documents, which he explained. He attended the hearings that were required. He later explained his strategy for testifying at the hearings. He certainly had a strategy for his written and oral communications. I found the contract for services a little confusing, but since I wrote contracts for a living, Scott was even responsive to my editorial comments. He seemed quite patient but balanced in terms of not wasting time on the clock. Every situation is different and not all resolve perfectly, but my rating based on my situation and outcome would be A+. I would use Scott Dennison Law again without question. I cannot think of any way the services could have been better quality. I might add that I have worked with attorneys for forty years in my administrative work. A+ was my experience.See more

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.
