Selecting a personal injury lawyer in New Jersey
Selecting a personal injury lawyer following an accident is a very important decision. There are many different things you should consider. For example you should find out if the law firm has specialized knowledge in the field. How often do they handle these types of cases. If they do not regularly handle personal injury accident cases it probably would be wise to find a firm that does. Do they have the experience and expertise to assist you through a very difficult time in your life. Are they responsive to your questions, do they have convenient locations and are they available after normal business hours to discuss your case.
Are any members of the firm certified in civil litigation? At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, Todd J. Leonard is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Certified Civil Trial Lawyer. Only a very small percentage of lawyers in New Jersey have this special designation. Also, do any members of the firm lecture to other attorneys in the area of personal injury?
You also want to see if they have handle the type of case that you have and what is their track record of success. The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm has been protecting and fighting for victims rights for over 25 years. Our firm has handled numerous serious personal injury cases following all types of accidents, including wrongful death claims, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, burns, injuries requiring surgery such as fusions, significant disfigurement/scarring, and assaults.

Most importantly since a personal injury claim can take an extended period of time to be settled or tried before a jury, make sure that the attorney makes you feel comfortable and cares about you and your case. Will that lawyer just hand you off to a paralegal or assistant or will he or she personally handle your case. Will they take the first offer or will they fight to protect your rights and if necessary bring your case before a jury.
