What are Better Ways to Choose Your Personal Injury Lawyer?

Instead of relying on television ads or billboards that you see around Los Angeles, you should do your own personal research about the attorneys whom you are considering. You can research to find out if the attorneys have received any awards. If the attorneys have received awards, you should check the validity fo them. You will want to find out what criteria are used to receive awards such as being named as a Super Lawyer or having a perfect 10.0 rating on Avvo. Check with the California State Bar to see if the lawyer has any disciplinary record. If the attorney does, you might want to steer clear. If the attorney who you are considering has received awards and is in good standing with the state bar, you should investigate what others have said about the experiences that they have had with the lawyer. You can search on the internet for reviews of the lawyer. Finally, you can also ask your friends and family for recommendations, but it is important that you make certain that they were actually represented by the firm.

If your friends or family members recommend their former attorneys whose practice is primarily in a different area of law, you should instead search for a lawyer who is experienced in handling personal injury claims. Finally, when you meet with the lawyer for a consultation, ask him or her about his or her track record. Ask about his or her litigation and trial experience. Even if your case is eventually resolved in a settlement, knowing that your lawyer is willing to go to trial if the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable offer is important for your ability to obtain the maximal recovery amount so that your losses are covered.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Josie A.
★★★★★
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.

Because of Steven Sweat, my medical support was taken care of. Plus, I had more money to spare for my other bills. Steven is not only an excellent personal injury lawyer, providing the best legal advice, but also a professional lawyer who goes beyond his call of duty just to help his clients! He stood up for me and helped me get through the process. I would definitely recommend. I couldn't think of any better lawyer than him. MiraJane C.

I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
