Prepare questions for each attorney before attending the consultations. Start out by asking each attorney about his experience in personal injury law. What kind of cases does he typically handle? Does he specialize in any areas? Make sure the attorney has plenty of experience handling cases similar to yours. More importantly, ask the attorney about the success he has had representing clients in situations similar to yours.
Then, talk to the attorney about his experience taking cases to trial. Although it doesn’t happen often, it’s recommended that you work with an attorney who is comfortable going to trial in case it’s necessary.
Finally, learn more about the law firm. Who will you be working with at the law firm? Will you be able to contact an attorney, or will you be handed off to a legal assistant? How often will you be updated on the status of your case? These questions will help you get a better idea of what it’s like to work with the law firm.
