When choosing a personal injury lawyer, you may be tempted to go with a small firm or a single attorney. That would be a mistake. A large, established law firm offers benefits that nobody else can give.
Our team has years of experience and has helped clients all over Georgia. Here are five reasons why you should choose a large firm with the resources to help you:
1. Our firm devotes 100 percent of our practice to representing victims who are injured.
We do one thing and one thing well—representing the injured. Our firm is filled with associates, researchers, and investigators who are experts in personal injury law. We’ve been keeping abreast of specific laws through continuing education and research for more than 20 years.
We don’t expect to help you with bankruptcy or divorce because we respect that those fields are filled with nuances that only an expert would know. We have only one mission—to protect the injured and harmed. From your first phone call to our office to the last signature on your check, we’ll protect you every step of the way.
2. A large firm can offer the experience of over 100 staff members.
You’re hiring a team of seasoned investigators, tireless researchers, and more than 15 attorneys who only practice plaintiff’s law. Unlike sole practitioners with one or two assistants, our attorneys have three or four people assisting with each case. We keep our caseloads deliberately low so that you will get the best kind of care. And yet we are big enough to give your case immediate attention.
We know that people get impatient with attorneys for not paying enough attention to their case. Our firm’s goal is to provide the best and most engaged representation in Atlanta.
3. A long-established firm is in no hurry to settle.
Our firm is large enough that we can afford to wait to get you the maximum settlement allowed by law. We will hire as many experts as the case requires. We’ll assist you with the best medical care and help you get back on your feet while we work your case.
We won’t settle until we know you have recovered as fully as modern medicine will allow. Small law firms might not have this luxury, they might not have the financial means to take a case to trial, and therefore have more pressure to settle a case quicker to offset the bills and expenses incurred.
4. Our large firm has a reputation with the big insurance companies.
Insurance companies know our firm. They’ve met us in court many times and know that we won’t be fooled or pushed around. They understand that our team of trained attorneys won’t settle a case quickly. They know we are not afraid to go to court against their army of highly paid attorneys.
5. Our firm is local.
We’ve been in Atlanta for more than 20 years and we’re active members of the Georgia Bar, The Georgia Trial Lawyers Assn. and the American Assn. of Justice. We’ve been very involved in helping people on the local, state, and national levels.
If you have an issue or problem, we’ll have the solution. We know who the best medical care providers are who will treat you on a lien. We can get you transportation. We can even help you obtain a pretrial loan if you need it.
