Finding a disability lawyer often starts with a search on the Internet. Unfortunately, it is hard to tell if you are contacting a reputable attorney just by looking at their website. The right attorney can make the difference in your disability claim.
Be sure to look for these five things to make sure you’re contacting a good attorney.
Memberships, Affiliations, and Awards
A great lawyer will be recognized as such. Look for an attorney’s professional affiliations and memberships, check out the law firm’s Better Business Bureau accreditation and score and make sure they are members of the local bar.
Then, you will want to look at their awards. Great attorneys have multiple awards and professional recognitions for their service.
Free Initial Consultation
You do not want to have to meet with multiple attorneys only to spend the majority of your savings in the process. A good attorney will meet with you for a free consultation. This gives you a chance to get to know them, for them to review your case, and see if it’s a good fit for both parties – all without costing you a penny.
You want an attorney that exclusively deals in disability cases. While there are plenty of attorneys that have a full-service law firm, it is better to work with one that files and fights disability claims daily rather than occasionally.
Resources for Clients
When you are looking at potential attorney websites, see who has the most resources for their clients. This can be in the form of information on the web (such as detailed content) as well as blogs or even links to outside resources. The more information an attorney provides you for free on his or her site, the better.
While this one may seem obvious, many consumers forget to ask about an attorney’s record of accomplishment. Make sure when you meet with them that you ask about their success rate, how much their past cases have averaged in rewards, and so on.
