How to choose a Personal Injury or Car Accident Attorney in your Area

Hiring a lawyer any lawyer can be a confusing and daunting task especially if you are new to the area that you live in.  The internet in its vast infinity can make things even more confusing. Search engines have new ways to market and advertise lawyers but how do you know they are the right choice?  Are those flashy TV lawyers spending big money on TV ads really wanting to help you with your case?


Google the name of the lawyer you think you want to hire, where does that lawyer place on the internet? What does the internet say about that lawyer? Then look at the state bar website of the attorney you have in mind.  Look up the attorney, how long have they been practicing? What area of law do they practice? Personal injury? Divorce? Estate Planning? All of the above? A lawyer can really do two things in their practice 1) Litigation and 2) Transactions.. or like me I do both. Some attorneys specialize others don’t do one or the other.  What’s the difference? Personal injury lawyers are litigation attorneys.  Estate planning attorneys are in general transactional lawyers.


Does the attorney you have in mind have a website? Peruse the website. These days the lawyer has the option of using all sorts of social media, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, Bing, Google, Yahoo, YouTube..is the lawyer you are thinking of hiring on any of these? All of these?


Check Avvo.com and the other lawyer ratings services.  How does that lawyer rank in these ratings engines?


Lastly just ask around, today we can text on our iPhone or Android smart phone. We can send a message on Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo instant messenger or text anyone for a recommendation. In todays information age the message can be quick and the response quicker.

It’s a daunting task to hire a personal injury lawyer but the best of the best can be easily filtered out using the above.
