Looking for the Best Attorneys?

When People Are Facing the Worst possible circumstances, we step up. 

Looking for the Best Injury Attorneys in Houston?

People want answers after a serious injury or accident. There are many questions they have—and one of the common places they look for answers is the Internet. That's why people often search for the "best" Houston personal injury attorney. However, it's not as simple as searching for the best and getting the best. You're presented with options, and it's up to you to determine who the best is. As you embark on the journey to find what you're looking for, there are some questions you should be asking about what best means.

These are some of the questions that help shape who is best for their unique situation.

Do the Best Houston Injury Attorneys Have the Best Results?

Results matter. While not the only important aspect, your Texas trial attorney should have a proven record of success. If you want to put your case into the hands of the best trial lawyer, you should look at the past cases they have handled and the success they have had. In fact, the first place to look to see if a Houston personal injury attorney is the right one for you is their results. Results tell many stories. Some law firms use other law firm's results as their own—so it's essential to ask if the firm was the one that was actually responsible.

  • Did they get this result, or did another firm do the actual work?
  • Did they go to trial, or did another firm do it for them?
  • How big of verdicts or settlements did they secure in each case?
  • Did they get maximum compensation for their clients?
  • Did they effectively hold negligent parties accountable?

All of these results can help you determine the best trial lawyer for your case.

Ultimately, when looking at the results, look for recency, quantity—and, of course, value. Has the firm set records? Is the firm known for delivering big results? Has the firm recovered billions (plural) or just a few million? Having big results gives people an advantage when it comes to being heard and respected. These results need to be in cases similar to the one you're facing. A simple fender bender doesn't require a big firm with huge results. It's mostly paperwork. On the other hand, a serious truck accident requires a serious fight.

You need to hire a law firm with results that prove they stand behind their clients.

Do the Best Houston Personal Injury Attorneys Cost More?

Most personal injury firms don't get paid unless they recover, so every firm is available to pick. With that in mind, picking the one with a history of the best results around helps you achieve your ideal outcome.

Why Does Expertise Matter for the Best Injury Lawyers?

It is critical to hire a Houston, Texas trial attorney on your side who doesn't just have "years" of experience but actual courtroom litigation and negotiation experience. This type of experience truly makes for an excellent attorney. Without practice in and out of the courtroom, a trial lawyer cannot be considered a seasoned advocate—much less prepared to fight for the maximum financial compensation you deserve.

You want a trial lawyer who truly understands the ins and outs of how everything works when it comes to personal injury law. From the games that big companies play to avoid responsibility, to the opposing counsel you'll be facing, to the specific types of accidents people get involved in. For example, if a person was injured offshore, completely different laws govern the case. If the attorney doesn't understand maritime law, the chances of winning are dramatically lower. Hire an attorney who understands the type of case and has won similar cases repeatedly.

What Are the Best Texas Personal Injury Attorneys Like?

This is yet another part of discovering what "best" means to you. Learn about the attorneys who will work on your case. Watch their videos. Learn about them. Read their bios. Talk to them in person, over the phone, or on Zoom. The attorneys should genuinely care and want to help. They should be confident about how to handle the case. They should be able to explain what is going to happen. Inevitably, people are surprised by what happens as they begin the legal process. Having a great attorney means you'll be able to predict what will happen and have a plan. Lawyers can keep the surprises away and ensure that everyone is prepared.

A top lawyer needs to have conviction. They must care about the individuals who come to them and care about securing justice. When a trial attorney only cares about results or money, it can narrow their vision and impede them from securing the best possible outcome for the individual they are representing.

Connecting with people, not case numbers, is a key aspect of the best trial attorney.

Finally, the best attorneys are accessible. If it's a big case going to trial, you want to be in the know about what's happening. This includes being able to call or text them or one of their staff when questions or worries arise.

Are Great Injury Lawyers Part of Specific Associations?

For Houston personal injury lawyers, there are many associations or memberships you can get to be a part of. Bar associations are the most common. The best personal injury lawyers are really trial lawyers. They're the kind of attorneys you want in the courtroom when the other side refuses to do the right thing. They're the kind of attorneys the other side doesn't want to see. One group of trial lawyers to look for is called the Inner Circle of Advocates. A limited group of only 100 of the nation's best trial lawyers are invited to be in this group.

When You're Facing a Fight, AI Puts Everything Into Securing Your Future

The America Bar Association says there are 76,000+ personal injury lawyers in the U.S. Thousands of them reside in the Houston area.

Personal injury is a broad field, and choosing an inexperienced attorney could be a tragic mistake.

Houston Injury Lawyers with Proven Success

Do you want to work with an inexperienced attorney? Someone who hasn't proven themselves? Of course not! When it's your future on the line, it's not the time to trust it into the hands of a rookie. You need a heavyweight that you can trust,

Common Questions: Finding the Best Lawyer

What should I look for when hiring the best personal injury attorney?

Hiring a personal injury attorney is personal. You probably have certain qualities that are more important to you than others, but you should keep a few things in mind. Try to find an attorney with experience and past results in the particular type of case you're dealing with. You need someone who knows what they're doing. Look for quality service and communication, which you can see clearly through client reviews. In all, you should have an attorney who can secure the results you need while treating you like a person, not a number.

Why is experience so important?

An injury lawyer who has extensive experience will be better equipped to handle your case. This includes anticipating the other side's strategies, knowing what legislation and which precedents apply, and having the insight and skill to build the strongest possible case on your behalf. All of this leads to better, swifter results.

How do I know I’ve found the right personal injury lawyer?

Dealing with a serious injury or the loss of a loved one is difficult enough. The last thing you need is to worry about whether you've found the right lawyer.
