The S.E. Farris Law Firm
FINDING THE BEST INJURY LAWYER:
You wouldn't dare hire a surgeon based on a television ad, but many people hire their attorney based on a television ad. It's a horrible idea and here's why.
INJURY LAW NEWS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE S.E. FARRIS LAW FIRM
***DRAMATIZATION OF A TELEVISION AD***
"A lot of lawyers want to talk to you about credentials, Board certified, Smoard Certified, Super Lawyer, Pooper Lawyer. At 800 Cash Cow we're the home of the Superdedooperity Lawyers! (singing) "You're in a wreck and you hurt your neck, we'll be there to get you your check!" (for best results, choose your lawyer based on number of advertisements).
I'm Spencer Farris and I represent injury victims in Missouri and I've been doing it for about 20 years. I hope you enjoyed that video and realized that that is just a joke and that is the last way you should pick an attorney. Here are some things you should look for though.
You should look for experience. A lawyer who is trying his first personal injury case is not the lawyer you want trying your only personal injury case. You want someone with trial experience.
You want someone with credentials. We've talked about this before. Credentials are thing that requires a little research to make sure they are REAL credentials or not. Be aware that a lot of the badges you see on people's website are nothing more than paid advertising things. Real Credentials are like board certification; that is a test that lawyers have to take, it's not required, but lawyers that are board certified you know have gone the extra mile.
DEDICATED TO YOUR NEEDS:
Finally you want to find a lawyer that is dedicated to your needs, not someone who is just trying to see how many cases they can handle and how fast they can move through each one. You are entitled to personal assistance on your personal injury case. You want a lawyer who takes that commitment and that relationship seriously.
Television is a wonderful place to buy a refrigerator but they are a horrible place to hire an attorney. If you have a personal injury and would like to talk to an attorney about your case, call me at the number on your screen or visit my web address. I'm happy to try and help without any costs or obligation. And if we can do nothing more than help you choose the right lawyer, we're happy to do that as well.
THE S.E. FARRIS LAW FIRM IS DEDICATED TO THE NEEDS OF INJURY VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
