4 Things You Need to Know To Help You Choose an Attorney

Gold & Gold legal team

When it comes to choosing the right attorney, “good enough” isn’t good enough. Picking the right person to help you navigate your case is paramount to securing a positive outcome. The good news is that while the process may seem daunting, our award-winning team of attorneys has been around the block long enough to help you make the right decision. Over the years, we’ve established a checklist to help you recognize the key traits to consider when selecting the right attorney, who is willing to fight for you with integrity.

Results & Experience 

The number one consideration when evaluating attorneys is track record. You’ll want to ask questions like: How long have they served your community?; How many cases have they litigated?; and What are the results of those cases?

Don’t be afraid to get into specifics. Cases are about more than just winning, they’re about securing fair compensation that matches the pain endured and can make an impact in helping you or your loved one live the new normal. You should come prepared to discuss the facts of your case with your prospective attorney and any expectations you have for compensation. Be sure to ask your potential attorney about his or her case results and experience in the courtroom practicing a particular type of law.

At Gold & Gold, we pride ourselves on holding others accountable for their actions and making our communities safer areas to live in. For more than 40 years, Gold & Gold has leveraged its extensive trial experience to secure significant outcomes on behalf of clients, including $15 million dollar pharmaceutical negligence cases, $12.75 million dollar medical malpractice settlements and $5 million dollar wrongful death and traumatic brain injury cases.

Specialized Practice Areas 

Results and experience are one thing, but not all experience is created equally. For example, you wouldn’t call your mechanic for advice if you had a headache. Similarly, an attorney whose primary focus is motorcycle accidents isn’t the person you want representing your medical malpractice case — no matter how experienced the attorney is.

The reason Gold & Gold has such a successful track record of winning cases is that our attorneys are hyper-focused in specialized practice areas.

Every case has specific nuances that can only be gained from experience and a focus in that field of work. The team at Gold & Gold understands the intricacies involved in presenting your specific case and how best to fight for the outcome you deserve.

Honesty & Communication

Once you’ve narrowed down your list to the most experienced and specialized attorneys, it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll interact with your attorney during your case. No amount of experience can overcome a lack of communication.

Trials can be long, stressful and constantly evolving. A lack of communication compounds those stressors and can negatively impact your case. That’s why it’s important to have an attorney who is open, honest and transparent.

Not only is a great attorney responsive and readily available for questions, but they are also preemptive communicators. Your attorney is going to ask you to accurately and honestly describe every detail of your case to them, so it’s key that you trust them to discuss the case openly and honestly.

We offer free case evaluations to go over the specifics of your case and to answer any questions you may have, even before you take us on as your attorneys. We work hard to anticipate our clients’ needs and treat them like family. That’s a big part of why we’ve been in business with some clients for more than 40 years.

Compassion & Commitment to Community

If you’re looking for an attorney, you’ve been hurt in some way. Whether it’s a life-altering injury or the emotional turmoil of losing a loved one, a good attorney understands that every case must be managed on two fronts–the legal front and the emotional front– in order to ensure the client’s needs are met.

Compassion strengthens trust and improves client satisfaction, but it can be hard to measure before choosing the right attorney. One tell-tale mark of compassion is a commitment to one’s community. Whether it be philanthropy or volunteerism, giving back to one’s community is a sign that an attorney takes pride in taking care of those in need.

At Gold & Gold, we want our clients to feel heard and supported throughout their case.
