Who's The Best Connecticut Workers' Compensation Attorney For Injured Workers?
The answer is different for everyone. Every injured worker has a unique personality and life experiences that draw them to certain attorneys. I would respectfully suggest that the following be strongly considered:
Experience– Does the attorney have five or more years under his/her belt so that you can have confidence that they have mastered the subject material and complexities of Connecticut Work Comp Law? Do they do other types of law besides work comp or do they solely focus on CT Work Comp cases? We do and we have since 1986.
Ethics– Does the attorney have a good reputation in the legal community? We Do. We Have an "Exceptional" ratting from Martindale Hubbel and a 10 Avvo rating. We also have 30 plus 5 star reviews on Google.
Recognition– Does the attorney have recognition by reputable organizations such as http://avvo.comAvvo? We do and have a prefect 10.0 rating on Avvo.
Certification– In Connecticut Workers' Compensation Law, starting in 2001 there is a Certification exam. Does the attorney have the “Certified Specialist” next to their name so that you know they are Certified in this ever evolving and complicated area of law? Do they dabble in Connecticut Workers' Compensation and handle many other types or cases- or do they dedicate 100% of their practice to Workers' Compensation? I have been a certified specialist in Connecticut work injury law since 2001.
Personality– As mentioned previously, the personality of the attorney is important. The Workers' Compensation process can be very long- sometimes even a year or more. You may have more interaction with your attorney than some of your relatives! So making sure you get along with your attorney is important. Do they treat you with respect and return your calls and emails? Do they get too defensive when you ask questions? Do you feel they really care about you and your case? We do. Our 5 star Google rating speaks for itself.
Choosing a Connecticut Work Comp Attorney can feel like a daunting task. Ask your friends or neighbors who they like. Word of mouth is a great tool like any aspect of life. Don't get fooled by firms that show up on TV and billboards all the time- just because they market a lot doesn't mean they are handling your case with care. Choose wisely!
