Choosing a Wrongful Death Attorney

If you are looking for a wrongful death attorney, you’re obviously going through something that’s serious and stressful. It is serious for you and serious for your family, which is why you should take hiring the right attorney seriously. You shouldn’t just look for the attorney that has the billboard right down the street, or runs the most ads on television. They might be a fine choice, but you want track record do they have? Have they been successful with wrongful death cases? Have they handled cases that are significant in nature like wrongful death cases? There are also several other things that you are going to want to consider.


What experience do they have? Experience is not just measured by the number of years they have been in practice. You will want to look at specific experience handling personal injury or wrongful death cases. There are plenty of attorneys out there who may have practiced for 25 or 30 years, but just started doing personal injury or just do a minor amount of personal injury cases. It is possible that an attorney who has been practicing just 2, 3 or 5 years, may have handled considerably more personal injury cases than they have.

Reputation and Trustworthiness:

You will also want to take a look at their reputation. Are they considered to be trustworthy? You can talk to previous clients, other attorneys, or look up reviews online.

Time and Dedication:

It is also important to determine if the attorney has the time and dedication to devote to your case. You don’t want to end up with an attorney that doesn’t have the resources available to give the proper amount of attention to you and your case.

Effective Communication:

Effective communication is a key component of the attorney/client relationship. Find out if they have processes in place to ensure you are going to be given consistent, timely updates. The last thing you want during this difficult time, is an attorney that only contacts you periodically, when it is convenient to them.

Friendly and Helpful Staff:

Going through the process of a wrongful death case is stressful, and it is important that everyone you are dealing with, from the attorney to the office staff are kind and helpful. You want to make sure that all involved care about you and what you are going through, and not just the money involved in the case.
