Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Lawyer

You Have a Right to Know What to Expect From Your Attorney

There are several important factors you should consider before hiring an attorney to handle your personal injury or wrongful death claim, and you have a right to know key information about each of the law firms you are considering before you make your decision.

At Rosenblum and Partners, LLP., our attorneys are prepared to give forthright answers to all of the questions prospective clients ask us. The following are some of the most important questions that we believe any lawyer ought to be prepared to answer:

  • How many cases like mine have you handled? There is a steep learning curve involved in many types of personal injury and wrongful death cases. A lawyer who has had cases like yours before will know what steps to take to get the results you deserve.
  • Who is going to handle my case? At some firms, most of the actual work is done by junior associates and paralegals or farmed out to outside lawyers. Our firm is exclusively made up of experienced attorneys who personally handle all of our cases.
  • Who is going to pay the expenses? We do not take cases unless we believe in them, so except in very rare instances, we do not ask our clients to pay expenses. We will advance all litigation expenses.
  • What kinds of experts are you going to use? Skilled expert testimony can make a major difference to the outcome of a catastrophic injury or wrongful death case. Our firm is prepared to hire top-notch experts to testify on behalf of our clients.

Don’t Base Your Decision on What Someone Tells You Your Case Is Worth

Every case is unique. The amount you are entitled to will be based on the causes and consequences of the harm that has been done to you. A responsible attorney will not claim to know what your case is worth until a thorough investigation has been done.

Don’t be misled by anyone who claims he or she can tell you in advance what your case is worth. Pie in the sky promises from a lawyer who is trying to get you to hire him or her are not worth very much, if anything.

At Rosenblum and Partners, LLP., we approach all of our cases with a dedication to getting premium results for our clients. For a free consultation to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury trial attorney, contact us today at our offices in Albany.
