Tips for Finding Insurance Law Firms As the name implies, insurance law firms handle insurance and financial litigation. These firms often handle class action suits, contract disputes and intellectual property cases. If you think you might have to retain the services of an insurance law firm, then the following tips might help you find the lawyers that will help you win your case:
Tip # 1: Research, research, research.
Make sure that the attorney you choose has been thoroughly background checked. Consult your state's disciplinary agency to see if the attorney is in good standing with the bar. Check peer reviews and ask other attorneys who they would recommend for your case.
Tip # 2: Ask questions.
Asking questions during a candidate interview serves not only to clarify certain issues, but gives you insight on to his or her professionalism and interest in you and your case. Make sure that any attorney you hire listens to you, answers your questions promptly and succinctly, and gives you the attention you require. Ask how long he or she has been practicing and what type of experience he or she has in the area with which you need counsel. Ask about his or her success record. Ask about fee structures. Ask who else will be working on your case, and if he or she outsources any of his or her responsibilities.
Tip # 3: Look around the office.
Request a tour of the law office. Note if the office appears disorderly, unkempt or if there are large sections of the space that are unoccupied. Check if the staff appears unhappy or unmotivated. You will want a law office that is easily accessible, with helpful staff in tidy and efficient quarters.
