Here’s a secret, this is not the first article to discuss how to find the right personal injury lawyer for you. In fact, you could find article after article on this topic all over the Internet. And time and time again you will usually see some variation of these three things:

  1. Select an experienced personal injury lawyer;
  2. Choose someone who has extensive trial experience;
  3. Find one that has a history of high verdicts and settlements.

All three of those things are important and we don’t want to minimize those points. But our trial team will tell you that you need more than that. One of the biggest issues to consider (assuming the lawyer has the requisite competence) is whether you feel comfortable with the lawyer. Litigation can be very stressful. Do you trust the lawyer?  Did you get your call returned right away?  Is the attorney easy to talk with?  Does the lawyer care about you and your claim?  Does the relationship feel right?  There are many competent and experienced personal injury attorneys in Iowa so make sure to trust your instincts.
