Robert Gluck: Many people have asked me, "If I'm injured in an accident of any kind and I'm hiring a personal injury lawyer, does it really make a difference if my lawyer has trial experience?" Well you have to consider that trial experience is something that you can't buy. That's something that takes years to acquire. Many people settle 90% to 95% of the personal injury cases that come through their office. My offices settles probably 90% of the personal injury cases that come through my office. But there's a major difference. Want you hire a lawyer that's never tried a case, the insurance companies know it. When your lawyer is negotiation with them and threatening them that if they don't pay X amount of dollars on this case by a certain date that he's going, or she is going to file a lawsuit on your behalf, they're laughing at that if they know that you don't even know where the courthouse is. They can tell which lawyers file lawsuits on cases and which ones don't very easily. So, if, for example, you've been practicing law like I have for over 27 years and you have a long list of cases in which you have filed a lawsuit, then insurance companies are more likely to make a more reasonable offer to get that case settled because they know that you have a lawyer that is willing to go to court if there isn't a fair offer. And believe it or not, they do want to get cases settled. So if I means having the reputation of someone who's willing to try a case to get a better result for your case, why not? You're going to pay the same one-third lawyers for a personal injury case whether your lawyer's brand new and right out of law school, or if he's been practicing for 27 years like I have. So why not get a lawyer with trial experience, so the insurance company knows you mean business when you ask for money to compensate you for what their client did wrong.
