Each prospective attorney has an area of expertise that may or may not fit the bill when it comes to your specific case. If say, you were involved in a car accident, a personal injury attorney like those at our law firm would be someone you would want to consider hiring. If you are arrested for a crime you did not commit, then a criminal defense attorney is what you need. Remember that all attorneys are not the same.
Considering there are thousands of attorneys who specialize in certain areas, whether it be drunk driving, traffic tickets, or slip and fall accidents, know what you attorney's expertise is.
At the Martindale Law Group, we cover a wide range of cases (which you can see in our Areas of Practice tab above). We practice in the areas of personal injury caused by negligence of others and insurance claims.
Rick Martindale is a former insurance adjuster himself, so he knows the tricks of the trade that insurance companies employ in order to either significantly reduce your claim, or deny it all together.
Often times you will hear attorneys state that they cover "all the bases", but that is simply not the case. For you as the client, you want an attorney that can handle your specific case well, and that means finding the attorney who has expertise in your specific case.
A quick search on Google will likely yield over a dozen attorneys, and helpful reviews and quick glances at their websites can help you determine whether or not this is the right attorney for you.
During your research you will also likely run into referral sites, which you should avoid at all costs. Why use a middleman when you can just as easily find the information yourself? Utilize Facebook, Google, and the attorney's website for everything you need to know.
Do not hire an attorney that you can not speak with beforehand. Do not be forced to speak with a paralegal or assistant before hiring your attorney. The attorney that is right for you is the one who is willing to discuss your case and answer any questions you may have with you on the phone or in person.
These are just a few helpful tips to find the right attorney for you. Do the research and feel comfortable knowing that your choice was a well informed decision suited for you specifically.
