Searching for an attorney on the Internet creates a unique challenge. How can you know that this is the right law firm and the right attorney for you and your case?
There is a famous New Yorker cartoon that shows a dog typing on a keyboard while standing in front of a computer screen and telling another dog that is watching him type, “On the internet nobody knows you’re a dog.”
What this cartoon means is, how do you know what you are getting, or whom you are hiring to represent you, just by looking on the internet and at a website?
Before you hire an attorney to represent you in your personal injury case there are some facts that you should be aware of. Since most people who are looking for an attorney are doing so for their first time and are not familiar with lawyers, or the legal system, there are some things you should be aware of.
When you hire an attorney to represent you in a personal injury case, whether your injury was suffered on a construction site, in a car accident, a slip, trip or fall or any other fact pattern imaginable, you should be aware that all New York personal injury attorneys charge basically the same fee. The fee is called a “contingency fee”, which means that the attorney is to be paid 1/3rd of any recovery, but only if you win your case.
If the attorney agrees to accept your case, usually the personal injury attorney, will also agree to advance all of the necessary expenses entailed in bringing your case to a successful conclusion so that you do not have pay anything, and it costs you nothing, to start and proceed with your personal injury case. Remember that the attorney will receive a fee only if your case is brought to a successful conclusion.

Your first step should be to look at the firm’s former client reviews and testimonials.
