Atlanta Lawyers

By: Alison Cole

Whether it is a personal injury case involving an automobile accident, a compensation case against the company or a real estate case entailing property disputes, there is no shortage of lawyers in Atlanta who can fight your case for you. However, zeroing in on the ideal lawyer needs some consideration. This is important because you only get one chance to fight your compensation case. Compromising on a lawyer will lead to trauma that can easily be avoided.

First or all, you need to get your priorities in order. Keep in mind while searching for a lawyer that skills are what is most important and not marketing skills, flashy cars or an expensive, plush office. The saying "all that glitters is not gold" may sound cliché, but the bottom line is, it holds true when you make your choice.

Do some groundwork. Make sure that a particular lawyer has a proven track record, is well respected in the community and has a spotless reputation. The lawyer may not be the right choice if his or her expertise is in personal injury, and you are looking for a lawyer to take on your property dispute case.

Before settling on a lawyer, make sure he or she is willing to fight your case all the way. Many lawyers go for out of court settlements and are willing to argue their cases in front of a jury. This is especially true in accident cases or when compensation is involved. Ultimately, it is the insurance company that has to pay the damages. Once the insurance company realizes that the lawyer is going to back down in court, it might urge you to settle for a reduced amount of money.

Atlanta lawyers can be found through a referral service provided by Georgia State Bar Association, the county bar association and other professional law associations. Information is also available in the yellow pages or through search engines like Google and Yahoo on the Internet. You can check advertisements of law firms in magazines and newspapers. Friends and family members are also excellent sources of information.
