Are you familiar with the fairy tale “Goldilocks and the Three Bears?” A young lady named Goldilocks ventures into the home of a family of three bears while they are out for a walk. She tests each bear’s chair and eats from various bowls of porridge until she finds a seat and a spoonful that are “just right”. She then goes upstairs and finds three beds. She tests each one, and goes to sleep in the one she feels is “just right.” When the bears return she wakes up and runs off.
Breaking and entering and angering bears are not life choices we endorse, but the search for things that feel “just right” is something we are familiar with. As personal injury attorneys, we are frequently approached by people who have been injured and are looking for an attorney to take their case. We are happy to meet with them, or at least jump on the phone with them because we understand how important it is to find an attorney that feels “just right.”
Finding an Attorney to Take Your Case
Below are a few helpful tips that we would like to share with anyone who is looking for an attorney to take their case.
Find Someone You Can Trust
The most important factor to consider when you are searching for an attorney to take your case is how comfortable you are with your chosen counsel. You are going to have to share lots of personal information with your attorney — including health and financial records. It is important that you trust your lawyer to take your claim seriously and treat you professionally.
At Levin & Malkin, we pride ourselves on the quality care and service we offer our clients, and we are humbled when we hear praise from a satisfied client.
Experience Speaks Volumes
If you needed open-heart surgery you wouldn’t ask your family practitioner to take up a scalpel. So, why would you trust the attorney who helped you buy a house or get divorced with your personal injury case? Lawyers, like doctors, tended to focus on certain areas of practice more than others. So, make sure you are working with an attorney that is familiar with your type of case.
Levin & Malkin is a personal injury firm. We don’t file for patents or advise corporate leaders on business disputes. We help people who have been injured seek justice and compensation.
If you have been injured in an accident, you are probably being inundated with advertisements for various attorneys. In addition to looking for an experienced attorney that you feel comfortable with, we would encourage you to work with someone who has an office in your neck of the woods. Find someone easy to meet with, will be able to help you gather evidence, and is familiar with the local courts and judges.
Levin & Malkin has been serving clients in Hackensack and the surrounding communities since the 1970s. If you can’t come to our office, we can meet with you at your home or the hospital.
Don’t settle for an attorney that doesn’t feel “just right.” Look around until you find an experienced attorney in your community that you feel comfortable working with.
