What to consider in choosing an attorney

“The most important considerations in choosing an attorney to represent you in cases of personal injury or wrongful death are experience, competence, success record, reputation (in the legal and insurance communities), and a passion for handling the case.

A note from Attorney W. Winston Briggs

expert_advice_1I have tried and won far more jury trials than most of my peers. During my career, I have tried more than 150 jury trials. I have a reputation for not backing away from trial like many attorneys. Insurance companies, lawyers, and judges know that. They know that I am willing to take the case to trial if the case is not resolved for its full value before trial. This results in better outcomes for my clients. When insurance companies and their lawyers believe that a lawyer does not want to try the case, they will attempt to resolve the case for less than its full worth. Many so-called “trial lawyers” are actually reluctant to try cases in front of juries or have limited trial experience. That is where passion, experience, and reputation are important. It is well known in the legal community that, if no reasonable offer is made in my client’s case before trial, I will do whatever it takes to get my client what they deserve, including taking the case to trial. That generally results in larger offers to my clients before trial. However, if the settlement offer is less than reasonable and we must go to trial, I have the experience and passion to successfully try the case.”
