The Process of Hiring a Lawyer

March 27th, 2017 Posted by Legal Issues
When injured in a car accident or been the victim of assault or another’s negligence, the idea of hiring a lawyer can be intimidating and uncomfortable.  Most people assume lawyers are expensive, so they try to fix their problems on their own in order to save money.  In actuality, though, retaining an attorney can often increase the value of the case.   Plus, in most cases, the attorney works on a contingency fee – which means they don’t get pain unless the client does.
It’s my sincere hope that most of you won’t have to seek an attorney any time soon, but it’s important to understand what to expect if and when that time comes.
All law firms are different in the way they approach signing a new client, so I’ll focus on our approach here at the Peper Law Firm.
The first thing we do is fully evaluate the case.  When a client reaches out to us, we get some basic information and immediately schedule a face-to-face meeting with one of our attorneys.  At the intake meeting, we’ll gather as much information as you have at the time, explain your options and scenarios, and tell you exactly what you can expect from our legal representation.  We will go over the Legal Services Agreement in detail, and answer each question in full.
Once you retain our services, we immediately go to work on your case.  Our team of investigators will quickly obtain any incident reports or medical records we will need, as well as personally interview any witnesses or emergency responders. Our lawyers and paralegals will begin communicating with any relevant insurance companies, medical providers, courts, law enforcement, or opposing counsel.
We will update you on your case on a regular basis, and you’re always free to call our office if you have any questions.  Our job is to do the worrying and the work, so you don’t have to.  In short, we focus on your case so you can focus on your health.  We want you to get back to your normal life as quickly as possible, so we efficiently and effectively resolve your case.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident or been the victim of an assault or another’s negligence, our job is to put you in a position to make a full comeback and come out stronger on the other side.  That’s what we do for our clients.
