While it’s completely normal to be distressed after your accident, the following attorney searchings details can aid you in finding your legal representation:
- Check References
Begin your search by asking those you trust. Perhaps your friend or colleague has ben involved in a civil case similar to the one you’re interested in pursuing. They may be able to help you find an attorney who not only practices in the area you need, but has an excellent tract record.
- Choose By Specialty
Because most people have never been involved in a civil case before, it’s unlikely they’d immediately know that each attorney has a specialized practice. Just like you wouldn’t hire an optometrist to diagnose pain in your bones, you wouldn’t hire an attorney who specializes in divorce to represent you in an injury case. Look for a civil lawyer, trial lawyer and personal injury lawyer.

You want an attorney who can negotiate and try your case. When searching, look at the number of years a lawyer has practices personal injury law in Sacramento and Santa Ana.
