If you have been injured on the job or been hurt in an auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation for any medical costs and lost wages. The first step to receiving a favorable ruling in court is hiring the right attorney. Many attorneys, including those at Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky, will “audition” by providing potential clients with a free legal consultation where they can go over your case and help you determine whether or not you should proceed

However, in order to make that decision, you will have to be prepared and know what to expect. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you look for the right attorney:
Learn more about the attorney’s background: You want an attorney who knows what he or she is doing, right? Ask the attorney about his or her background so you have confidence in them. Your attorney should have experience in case similar to yours and be able to provide instances of past success.
Ask him or her who will handle the case: In many larger firms, multiple attorneys and paralegals may handle the case. Ask the lawyer if this will be the case or if he or she will be doing the majority of the work on the case.
