Some lawyers are just settlement lawyers that will take any offer the insurance company makes, whether their last offer is fair or not, the right value of the case or in the best interest of the client. These lawyers are in everyone’s neighborhoods, on TV and on billboards. Some advertising lawyers are excellent lawyers who do the right thing by their clients and are outstanding at practicing law and helping their clients. It is important for you to ask the right questions so you know who you may be hiring. As I’ve discussed in other blogs, finding a lawyer that actually tries cases is one of the most important things you can do when hiring an attorney. It makes a huge difference on the results they are able to obtain and gives them an idea of the true value of your case. Without ever having been through a trial and dealing with facts and circumstances, it’s impossible for a lawyer to really know what the true value of a particular case is.
As a caveat, make sure the attorney is actively trying cases and not referring to cases they have tried years before your meeting. If an attorney has lost his or her will to try cases then they are really no more use to you then an attorney that has ever tried a case.
The office of Christopher Ligori & Associates is proud of the fact that they are extremely aggressive when litigating cases and that the attorneys within the law firm have tried well over 100 jury trials to verdict. All of the attorneys in the office are AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell which is a peer review rating that less than 1% of trial lawyers are able to obtain.
