Question:

How do I choose the best wrongful death attorney for my claim?

Answer:

To choose an attorney for a wrongful death case, you need to do your research. There are so many different ways these days for you to find out what the credentials are of an attorney, and it doesn’t mean that you need to rely on the ones that advertise on TV. Those attorneys on TV may not necessarily have the credentials that you need to handle a wrongful death case. Get online, look at Martindale-Hubbell, and see if the lawyer has the highest rating, which would be an AV rating. Go to Super Lawyers; which is a place that has lawyers rate one another from the defense and from the plaintiff side.Choosing a Wrongful Death AttorneyIf the lawyer that you’re looking to hire is a super lawyer, you know that they’ve been reviewed by peers on both sides. Look at Avvo. Avvo rates attorneys as well. Look at whether or not the attorney you’re thinking about hiring is active in the plaintiff side of litigation. Are they a member of the American Association for Justice? Are they a member of The Florida Justice Association? Have they been active in lobbying on behalf of the rights of victims? Research your lawyer and pick the right one.
