You have been involved in a car accident now you must choose an attorney. Different attorneys can bring different results and some can even ruin your case! So when you are selecting an accident attorney, whether you are the Plaintiff or the Defendant, you should find the best and most competent accident attorney in your area.
I always suggest starting with your State Bar Association. Every state has one, many states have more than one, and they will invariably have a lawyer referral program. Some Bar Association Lawyer Referral Programs are better than others, but most have a list of requirements for the lawyers who are involved in their referral programs. The Bar Association Referral Programs generally make sure the lawyer is competent, has tried cases in your area, has no record of misconduct, and the lawyers that you find from these programs are usually very solid, dependable and competent.
In many State Bar Association Referral Programs you can even choose your lawyer by the length of time they have in practice, their gender, their age, their location and the languages they speak! So short answer, you’ve been involved in a car accident and now you need to choose a lawyer – start with your State Bar Association Lawyer Referral Program. They’ve already done the research and screening for you!
