hiring a lawyerIn situations involving simple tasks, individuals or companies may choose to handle small matters on their own.  However, in more complicated matters, hiring a law firm that has a thorough understanding of the law and legal procedures is essential to achieving justice. That makes the services of an attorney indispensable.  So how do you find an attorney best suited for your legal needs?  Look for these important attributes:

  1. Experience

For a lawyer, experience is critical. Ensuring financial security for accident victims and their families, representing those that are victims of medical wrongdoing, protecting the assets that a person has worked so long and hard for, and helping businesses thrive by guiding them through ever-evolving laws and regulations — the stakes are high.

  1. Expertise

Experience means you have performed a task. Expertise means you do it well. You’re best served by an attorney who is well-versed in the area of law which involves that need. The team at Comitz Law provides specialized legal expertise in a variety of areas. From personal injury to medical malpractice litigation; commercial litigation to construction accidents; and wills to family law, Comitz Law is your legal resource.

  1. Integrity

Integrity is of utmost importance. Integrity means being honest and morally responsible to clients and potential clients while providing quality legal services at a fair cost. We hold the entire team to only the highest and most consistent standards, every single day.

  1. Dedication

Achieving the best results takes more than knowledge – it requires hard work. At Comitz Law you’ll find a team of hard-working people that are dedicated to your success. We fight hard to get you the justice you deserve.

  1. Resources

Look for a law firm that has the fiscal strength to provide their clients with expert resources. Comitz Law attorneys draw on the knowledge and experience of their expansive internal team and their impressive roster of highly-specialized experts, bringing more research, technological and detailed testimony to represent your case.


How You Can Assist and Advocate

If you choose to hire an attorney, you can still be very involved in your case.  Preparation and note-taking is imperative. Carry a notebook and a pen. Record names, dates and any specific details. Use your cell phone to document if possible. Take photos.

For example, if you’ve been injured in a car accident, take photos of the area if you can safely do so. Write down names, including any witnesses, insurance company names and numbers, names of officers, address of the accident location, times and dates.

To gather information for a potential medical malpractice claim, take detailed notes at your visit to the doctor and/or the hospital, including the names of doctors, nurses or any specialists that might be involved in your care. Include dates and times. You may also want to obtain your medical records.

If you’re a business owner, make sure to maintain comprehensive and up-to-date records for any future legal requirements such as meeting notes, licenses and policies, employee details, etc.
