3 Tips to Find the Right Immigration or Personal Injury Attorney, Bronx, New York

When you need an immigration or a personal injury attorney in New York, you’ll find there are many options. As a result, it’s hard to know which one is best for your case. Fortunately, there are a few basic points to keep in mind no matter what kind of help you need. Here are three tips for finding the right lawyer.

How to Select the Right Immigration or Personal Injury Attorney

1. Get Referrals

Getting an attorney referral from a friend, relative, or colleague you trust who has personal experience with the professional is a good way to start your search. Ask for an honest assessment, but keep in mind no two cases or personalities are alike. If a trait bothered them but doesn’t matter to you, it’s fine to consider moving forward with that legal representative.

2. Do Multiple Interviews

personal injury attorneyInterview at least three attorneys in person and compare and contrast their answers to your questions. Most lawyers offer free initial consultations, so there’s no out-of-pocket expense. Ask how many cases like yours the professional has handled. They should tell you about their win record and the number of clients they have represented. This information gives you an idea of their experience and caseload. Ask how they keep up with changes in the law and recent court decisions. You want to be sure they won’t miss something that might make a difference in your case.

3. Observe the Office Space & Personnel

Does the office looks clean, organized, and have up-to-date furnishings and equipment? Those are signs of good care and attention to detail and indicate the team will handle your case the same way. Notice how the attorney and staff interact with each other and how everyone treats you. Look for efficiency, kindness, professionalism, and mutual respect. Not comfortable with what you’re experiencing? Trust your gut and move on.
