How and When to Choose an Attorney
Looking for the “Best” Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Case?
Of course you are. That’s only natural. Did you know that in Connecticut, the rules that govern ethical conduct by attorneys restrict attorneys from proclaiming that they are “the best.” The rule probably makes sense because, otherwise, some attorneys might brag that they are better than all others and potential clients could easily become confused by such claims.
So, how do you choose a personal injury lawyer then? We suggest that you spend some time investigating reputations, which are hard won, often over many years. Ask people whose opinions you respect. Seek suggestions from a number of sources and see which names keep coming up.
You might also consider some of the organizations and publications that have compiled peer-reviewed directories of attorneys in various fields. We are honored that nine (9) of our Hartford personal injury lawyers are listed in the publication, Best Lawyers in America®, 2017, in the field of Personal Injury Litigation. Ten of our personal injury lawyers have been selected for inclusion in Connecticut Super Lawyers 2016 in the category of “personal injury plaintiff: general.”
You might also consider whether the attorney you are considering has been board-certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Seven (7) of RisCassi & Davis’ Hartford personal injury lawyers have passed the rigorous examination and vetting process required for board certification as Civil Trial Advocates: James Bartolini, Andrew Groher, Michael Jainchill, John Houlihan, Jr., David Cooney, Eugene Swain, and Paul Iannaccone.
