Attorney-client relationships are extremely important. They require the highest form of trust and confidence. Not to mention, the situations these relationships occur under are usually some of the most stressful in the client’s life. In a nutshell, attorney-client relationships are established due to the involvement of two key elements:
- A person seeking advice or assistance from an attorney; and
- The appearance of an attorney giving or agreeing to give advice or assistance.
Now that we’ve defined this type of relationship, we’ll dive deeper into what it looks like. There are several steps that lead to the formation of an attorney-client relationship. First, there is initial contact between the two parties followed with a consultation or interview. The initial consultation is a chance for the attorney to get to know you and the specifics of your case. At this point, you can determine if the lawyer and firm will be a good fit for you. The next step in the process is either accepting or declining representation. Should both parties accept, the relationship begins, and the attorney starts to work on your case!
How to Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer
Choosing a personal injury lawyer can be a daunting task. We understand that more often than not, when a client walks into our office or gives us a call, it’s due to a highly stressful circumstance. There are multiple difficulties and frustrations associated with a serious personal injury, whether it is an auto accident, or an injury suffered on the job. When you are suffering physical injuries that are painful and long-lasting as well as financial stress, you need someone in your corner to alleviate some of that stress! While our attorneys aren’t able to take away your pain (although we wish we could!), we can do everything possible to get you the compensation you deserve as well as deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. Here are a few things to consider when choosing the right attorney for you:
- Ask for referrals. Some of the people around you may have already gone through a similar situation – ask about who they would recommend and how their experience was with them.
- Do your research! Google reviews are a great way to learn more about a firm and their attorneys. Do your homework and see what others are saying!
- What’s important to you? Decide on the criteria that you feel is important to have in your lawyer. This will help you narrow down who will be the best fit based upon your needs.
