If you are in need of a personal injury attorney, it’s best to start by asking friends or family members for recommendations. Another great resource is the local bar association, who should be able to help you locate the best law firms near you.

Compile a list of attorneys based on these recommendations and then begin to conduct online research. Look at an attorney’s reviews to get a better idea of what it’s like to work with him or her. If a client has too many negative reviews, move on to the next one on the list.

You should also review the attorney’s website to make sure the attorney is still located in the area and practicing personal injury law.
