We’ve put together some tips on how to find the right lawyer for your case and not someone who won’t be able to handle the various laws. 

How to Find the Right Lawyer for You

There are more and more lawyers popping up online but how do you know that they are right for you? It is going to come down to three important details that you need to watch out for. Those are experience, respect, and communication style.

Experience Matters 

Just like you have experience in your job, a qualified lawyer is going to experience in their job. When looking for a workers’ compensation lawyer you need someone who has the skills to work with workers’ compensation laws. Think of it this way, you wouldn’t want your general practitioner doctor performing brain surgery so why would you want a general law lawyer to help you with worker’s compensation laws? The answer here is you wouldn’t want that. 

When you start looking for lawyers you need to filter out their experience levels. This means you should treat your consultation as if it was a job interview. While the lawyer will ask you plenty of questions about your claim, you should be asking just as many. Here are some of the questions that you should be asking to gauge your lawyer’s experience: 

  • How many years have you been handling workers’ compensation claims? 
  • How much of your practice is devoted to workers’ comp? 
  • Can you represent me through the whole process even if it goes to court? 
  • Do you have any references such as former clients or colleagues? 
  • Who is going to be handling my case, you or legal assistants and paralegals? 

These are just some of the questions you should ask. It helps to have a list when you go in to prevent you from missing anything.  

Respect and Communication 

The initial consultation is a great time to evaluate the professionalism of your lawyer when dealing with clients. Any lawyer worth their salt will be able to answer your questions patiently and with authority but they will also listen to your concerns and address them. This means you may not meet the lawyer you end up working with on the first try and that is okay. 

Take note of how the office is run as well. Does the lawyer treat them with respect? If they are talking down to the paralegals or assistants then it is best to move on. If they can’t treat the people they work with respect then it is okay to move on. 

In the same breathe if the lawyer doesn’t return communication in a timely manner then it is best to take your business elsewhere.
