Should I call the lawyer on TV?
While it may seem tempting to call the lawyer on TV, this is rarely the
best idea. Everyone knows these ads – they often feature a cheesy
car accident reenactment and a catchy motto. However, they typically fail
to address the experience, skill, and case results of the attorney. Many
of these “TV lawyers” are not actually trial lawyers –
when they handle a case that requires litigation, they refer your case
to a trial lawyer, and will simply take a cut of the fees you’re paying.
Before hiring an attorney based on a commercial, ask them the following:
- Are you the attorney who will handle my case, or will it be a paralegal
or junior associate?
- Will you actually fight for me in court?
- What sets you apart from other firms?
- What kind of case results do you have?
There are plenty of TV lawyers out there, but how do you know if one is
better than another? How do you know that they are any good at all? At

just talk about success – we’ve recovered more than $50 million
on behalf of our clients. When you retain our firm, you can trust that
you are retaining an attorney who is truly committed to your interests.
