Maryland is chock-full of lawyers. Many advertise that they will represent victims of car and truck crashes. Some of them know what they are doing to maximize the benefits and settlements of their clients. Others not so much.
So how do you pick the right attorney for your case? The most obvious thing is to call prospective attorneys and talk to them. Do they sound as though they know the area of the law that is involved in your case? Can you even reach an attorney or do you only speak to their assistants? If you can't speak to an attorney before you hire one, you can imagine what it will be like when you are just another client who has signed on the dotted line.
The #1 cited client complaint about personal injury attorneys is that they are never available to speak to their clients. Sure they have secretaries, paralegals and law clerks but when you have a serious question will your lawyer ever be available? If you can't reach the lawyer beforehand that doesn't bode well.
Okay so you have found a lawyer who will speak to you about the case you want to pursue and they seem to know about that area of the law, that is a good start. The next issue is where are they located? If you live in Laurel or Bowie, Baltimore or Washington may prove highly inconvenient. First there is the initial meeting with the lawyer to learn what your rights are and to sign the necessary paperwork so you can be represented. Then as your case progresses there are times that you want to drop off or pick up important papers, forms or checks. Some such items can be faxed, e-mailed or sent through the postal service but not everything and having a neighborhood lawyer is a great advantage.
