Today we received a call from a nice gentleman that was involved in a car wreck almost two (2) years ago. This gentleman initially hired a lawyer that he saw on television. The firm in question took his case and sat on in for twenty-three (23) months, before withdrawing as the statute of limitations drew near. We get these calls on a regular basis. If you need a lawyer, we recommend hiring a lawyer based on the following criteria:
- Is the lawyer well respected in the legal community and by the judges?
- If a lawsuit is necessary, will that lawyer file it or will that lawyer send you to someone else?
- Is the lawyer familiar with the local customs, procedures, and juries where your case will be filed?
