When selecting an attorney for a personal injury case, it's always best to choose an attorney who handles only those types of cases. An attorney with a “general practice”, who does a little family law, a little criminal law, a little real estate, and a little personal injury law, cannot possibly master all of these areas. You are best off with a lawyer that devotes his or her practice to representing plaintiffs.
Beyond skill level and specialization, you should feel comfortable with the attorney and the law firm’s staff on a personal level. You should be able to trust your lawyer. Make sure the attorney you choose will listen to you, answer your questions, and be available to you when you're most in need.
Part of feeling comfortable with your attorney is knowing that your case is as important to your attorney as it is to you. A lawyer that is not committed to your case in his/her heart, or who is simply too busy to take your calls or do the necessary work to handle your case, is not going to get you the best results.
