One of the worst things anyone has to do in life is to contact a personal injury attorney. Something has gone terribly wrong. A serious accident, the death of a loved one, the unspeakable has occurred, and it wasn't their fault, or you would never be "doing your homework" on lawyers. For most of us, the events are overwhelming enough, and the thought of having to contact an attorney or file a lawsuit is downright distasteful. You're not the type of person who would go to a lawyer for just any little thing, but your world has been disrupted. You just want what's fair, but know deep in your heart that the insurance company is not going to do the "right thing." We know and understand that people often do not trust personal injury attorneys. Far too many law firms treat their clients like nameless accounts, not like the real people who have suffered unspeakable loss. Within our profession, there are those who deserve such a reputation.
