How do you choose a lawyer when you’ve been involved in a car accident in New York? You have so many choices.
How can you make the RIGHT choice?

Here are 5 tips to help you decide which attorney is right for you:

Does the attorney offer you FREE information before you ever speak to him?

Does he give you:

  1. FREE books,
  2. FREE Reports, 
  3. FREE Videos, 
  4. Free Articles

If not, ask yourself, why not?

Does the attorney answer your phone the moment you call?

  • If he does, ask why?
  • Is he not busy?
  • Is he desperate to take every call, at all hours, any time of day or night?

Does that mean that every call interrupts anything and everything he’s doing at just the moment every new caller decides to ask questions?


This is obvious, right? You want an attorney who has tons of experience handling car accident cases and has achieved significant results with prior cases he’s handled.

Does the attorney teach you and explain the process to you? How can you learn how the legal process works? Simple. Look at their website. What information does the attorney give you? Do they have hundreds of videos that explain every aspect of lawsuits in New York? If not, ask why not.
How many active cases does the attorney handle at one time?

Why is that important?

It will tell you whether the attorney and law firm are overwhelmed with cases. It will tell you whether they are very selective and only take a limited number of new cases each year. There is a big difference between an attorney who handles 200 cases at one time compared to an attorney who handles only 20 cases at a time.

You have to ask yourself which attorney is right for you. Either one may be the right one. You just need to know the right questions to ask and judge for yourself.
