If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident, you no doubt want the very best representation. When you’re looking for an attorney to advocate for your rights as an accident victim, there are certain characteristics that you will want to be on the lookout for. Fox Goldblatt & Singer PC explains how to find the best St. Louis personal injury lawyer for your case.
Look for an attorney with a record of success.
One indication that a lawyer is right for you is their case results. An attorney can have all the knowledge in the world, but if they don’t have a track record to prove they know how to apply it, then you may not want to trust them with your case. At Fox Goldblatt & Singer, our attorneys have recovered over $400 million in verdicts and settlements for clients in a variety of personal injury and work comp cases.
Look for an attorney who comes top-rated.
Ratings are an important gauge of an attorney’s overall abilities. When comparing lawyers, it is important to take into consideration both their peer ratings and client ratings. At Fox Goldblatt & Singer, our attorneys have been AV Preeminent™ peer review rated on Martindale-Hubbell®, included in the list of Missouri Super Lawyers®, and named to the list of “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” by The National Trial Lawyers. Learn more about the firm’s awards & recognitions.
Look for a law firm with a presence in the community.
Out of all the St. Louis-area law firms, ours likely has one of the richest histories and deepest roots in the community. Our law firm was established in 1949. That is more than 60 years of a presence in St. Louis. Our community both knows and trusts us for civil litigation and personal injury matters.
Look for a law firm backed by years of experience.
While an attorney fresh out of law school may have the knowledge and eagerness to handle your case, nothing compares to years of dedication, hard-work and trial experience. Fox Goldblatt & Singer PC has over 100 years of collective legal experience between our lawyers.
Look for an attorney who fits in your budget.
A lawyer may claim to be the best in the business, but if they cannot offer fees that fit your budget then they likely aren’t the best attorney for you. After an accident, you have been through enough. You don’t need to go into debt on top of everything else. Fox Goldblatt & Singer PC not only provides a free case evaluation to any and all interested in our firm’s services, but we also have a “no recovery, no fee” promise. This means that you don’t have to pay a dime in attorney fees to our firm until we win your case.
Look for an attorney who you can relate to and trust.
After evaluating a lawyer based on all these criteria, you still must make the decision “can I trust this person with my case?” Relateability is vital when it comes to retaining a personal injury attorney. A lawyer and his or her law firm may have all of the qualifications you could hope for, but if after meeting them you are uneasy, this is something you should take into consideration. Most relationships take work, but if you cannot trust the lawyer you’ve met with or even the one you hired, you should consider seeking legal help elsewhere. We encourage you to contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney from our firm. Speak with us directly or come and meet with us in person. We look forward to hearing from you!
