Choosing the right personal injury attorney to help you with your case can be a very difficult decision. After experiencing an accident or injury, one is bound to be overwhelmed as they scroll through the long list of attorneys out there and determine their next steps.
Lem Garcia, a top notch personal injury attorney in Los Angeles County, and founder of Lem Garcia Law, says that it’s absolutely critical that you pick the right personal injury attorney to help you. “You’re going to be working closely with your attorney for a good amount of time for a very important matter, so it’s important that you like them and can place your trust in them.”
Lem is the son of two Filipino immigrant parents, who from a young age, instilled in him the value of hard work, humility, and kindness. “Growing up, I didn’t know what I wanted to do but I knew I wanted to somehow help people,” Lem recalls. He decided to study journalism in order to bring greater awareness to world issues that Lem believed people were unaware about. When he realized that people knew about these issues, they were just too plagued with their own problems to do anything about it, Lem decided to take a more direct and hands-on approach to help others, and enrolled in law school.
He graduated from law school and founded his law firm soon thereafter. Seven years later, Lem Garcia Law has become one of the most well-respected firms in Southern California and they’ve been able to make a real difference in the lives of many hard-working community members. “We pride ourselves on making things as straightforward and transparent as possible for our clients,” says Lem, “I want to make sure my clients feel that they can approach me and rest assured knowing they’re receiving the best service and outcome for their case.”
Lem Garcia has never lost his desire to help people, and while his firm has been instrumental in hundreds of lives, he knows he cannot help everyone. “I fear that most people don’t know what to look for when choosing a personal injury attorney or lawyer of any kind,” says Lem. He is determined to make sure any individual in need of support makes the best decision for themselves.
- Read the reviews. Look up your potential attorney and their firm’s reviews online. You will be able to get a gauge for their past experience, client-approach, and skillset. This is a great way to get honest, informative feedback about your prospective attorney before you even initiate contact.
- Call them up. Don’t be afraid to get on the phone and ask to speak with the attorney that will be handling your case. If you can’t speak with the attorney, that’s a red flag that you may not get the best service and results. Once you do speak with the attorney, take your time to ensure you feel comfortable and that it’s the right match. Trust your intuition. Make sure you have a good feeling about the attorney and that this is someone you can relate to. If you have a bad feeling, chances are your instincts are right and this isn’t the attorney for you.
- Appreciate their honesty. Some attorneys will tell you everything that they think that you want to hear so they can retain you as their client. The best attorneys are very candid with you and will tell you the good, bad, and ugly about your case and won’t try to sell you anything. They will simply be there to guide you and get you the best result possible. If you feel like someone is only telling you what you want to hear, even if it’s not true, you should continue to look for an attorney that will give you a completely honest assessment about your case. You need to fully trust your attorney.
