There are many personal injury law firms in Illinois. As our firm’s competitors, I’d like to tell you that they were all average at best, but that would be dishonest. Some of them are actually pretty good. We think we’re better.
First of all, weeding out the wrong lawyers to handle a personal injury case is easier than selecting the right one. The lawyers you do not want for your case have limited experience in handling personal injury cases. Just as you wouldn’t go to a foot doctor to handle your heart surgery, you shouldn’t go to the lawyer who handled your real estate closing to handle your personal injury case. You need and deserve a firm who focuses on personal injury law.
Another type of lawyer who you do not want to handle your case has a limited track record of success. This guy may brag to you about his handful of nice settlements, but you should want someone with a long list of not only high value successful settlements, but high value verdicts as well.
There are many other traits other than lack of experience and lack of a track record of success that many of my competitors share but I will not use this article to discuss those traits. Instead, I will focus on a major difference between good personal injury lawyers.
Now, you’ve found a few firms that you identified as good ones. You may inquire, “Why should I choose your firm? After all, even you admit that there are other good lawyers who practice personal injury law – experienced lawyers who have all types of awards and accolades just like you.”
Here’s my partial response: One thing that sets apart my firm from other personal injury law firms is that we do not have too much on our plates. We do not handle a large volume of cases like most of our competitors. Instead, we handle a limited amount of cases so our clients get the personal attention at the time when they likely need it the most. Many of my firm’s competitors, while decent lawyers, simply have a case load that is too heavy to manage carefully. That’s no good for you. The quality of work performed on your case will suffer. In addition, since we aren’t “volume” lawyers, your case will be brought to a conclusion much faster than most personal injury law firms could offer. Add to the mix that two of our lawyers have experience on the defense side – defending personal injury lawsuits, and it’s game over. Our competitors just can’t offer what we can.
At Willens Law Offices, we do not focus on quantity. We focus on quality. That’s why we meet people in person, take phone calls when we are available, return phone calls… quickly, and make an unpleasant experience for our clients as pleasant as possible. You’ll see from the moment you contact us what top-notch service feels like.
