Retaining an Attorney isn’t like buying a car, so don’t fall for the media hype
How Do You Choose The Right Attorney For YourTennessee Accident, Injury Or Wrongful Death Case?
Picking An Attorney: What Not To Do!
Let me start by telling you what not to do. Do not assume that just because a lawyer can afford a TV commercial, they are a good personal injury lawyer. I have good friends across the country who are excellent injury attorneys that I would not hesitate to have represent me in an accident case. Two common characteristics I have seen in these excellent and highly successful injury attorneys: (1) they all are willing to—and do—take their cases to trial when the insurance companies refuse to settle for what the cases are worth; and, (2) they do not advertise on TV.
These two characteristics seem to go hand-in-hand. In fact, most (though certainly not all)“TV lawyers” never go to trial and the insurance companies know this. The insurance companies know that most of these “TV lawyers” accept too many cases to be able to devote the time and attention to each case that is needed to maximize their value, and that because of this those lawyers have to settle the case for much less than it is worth. The insurance companies know that these lawyers are like the Wal-Mart of the legal profession, generic products with cheap ingredients!
At Keith Williams Law Group we focus on our clients. That means we screen our cases well and choose to work with people who have genuine harms and losses due to the negligence of another. When we accept a case, our client can be assured we will work to achieve the most beneficial settlement for their case. However, if the insurance company will not settle with you in good faith, you (as our client) AND the insurance company will have the assurance that we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial in front of a judge and jury and aggressively fight for your rights to a fair recovery of your damages.
