How Do I Find a Personal Injury Lawyer in Arizona?
You may know that you need legal representation if you have been hurt in a car wreck, a workplace incident, or other personal injury accident. But do you know how to go about finding the right attorney to handle your case?
If you are like most Arizona residents, unless you have already suffered an injury or loss, you may not have given much thought as to what law firm is best suited to help you in the aftermath of a traumatic injury accident. The choice of a personal injury lawyer is important and should not be made hastily; choosing the right lawyer can dramatically increase the likelihood that you will succeed in your quest for compensation.

Where to Find a Personal Injury Lawyer
Starting your search for the right personal injury lawyer can be daunting. Open up the phone book and you are bound to come across the names of dozens – if not hundreds – of attorneys and law firms in your local area. Performing a simple Google search can yield an even greater number of results. Rather than pick from these large lists at random, you may consider bettering your search for a lawyer by:
- Consulting with local and state bar associations: Bar associations are professional groups comprised of lawyers who practice in a particular jurisdiction. These bar associations can be a good resource to help you in identifying a personal injury law firm or attorney with a good reputation in your local community.
- Researching online directories: There are many websites that allow you to search and read reviews of attorneys. These websites fall into two general categories: sites that show customer or client reviews and ratings of attorneys, such as Avvo, and those that contain reviews written by a lawyer’s peers or fellow lawyers, like Martindale-Hubbell. Reading what others have to say about a particular attorney can help you quickly eliminate from consideration those attorneys and firms that do not have a good reputation.
- Trusting your gut: You should meet with an attorney before hiring that person to represent you in your case. When meeting with a lawyer, trust your instincts: Does this attorney have the sort of experience you would find helpful? Does his or her fees or terms of payment seem reasonable? More importantly, does this attorney seem to be someone who is interested in communicating plainly and honestly with you about your case? Do you feel as if you trust this attorney? If you get a bad feeling while talking with an attorney, it may be best to seek out another lawyer’s services.
What Should I Look for in an Arizona Personal Injury Lawyer?
The personal injury attorney you choose to represent you should be knowledgeable and experienced in handling personal injury cases. Just as you would not want a pediatrician to perform your open heart surgery, it can be dangerous to trust your chance of recovery to an attorney who has very little experience in handling cases like yours. While a lawyer’s success rate does not necessarily mean your case will be successful, a significant history of winning personal injury cases should not be ignored (nor should the lack of such a history).
