If you were injured and want to protect your rights, it is a good idea to find an attorney early in the process. In order to protect your interests, a good personal injury attorney must know all the details of your claim well and understand how your injuries have affected your daily life. You should trust your attorney and feel comfortable with them. Despite the wide availability and usage of remote communication nowadays, the best way to get a first impression of your potential attorney is by meeting them in person.
I have represented folks from a distance. Sometimes this kind of arrangement is necessary, such as if the injured person lives many hours away and cannot travel without exposing themselves to great risk, or maybe even a global pandemic. There are times when it makes sense to have “distance” or “remote” attorney-client relationship, but I want to emphasize: meeting face-to-face is important.
When you meet a person face-to-face, you have a chance to assess them based not just on what they say, but on all of their nonverbal communication as well (facial expressions, mannerisms, gestures, and comportment). Make no mistake – you must judge your attorney as a person. After all, if you don’t even like or trust your attorney, do you think a jury of your peers will?
