AJN Finds You The Right Lawyer

If you have a child that is suffering from cerebral palsy due to negligence of a doctor, which lawyer would you want representing you: one who has a great reputation for handling car accident cases or one who has focused exclusively on medical malpractice cases?  In other words, you don’t want a lawyer who has never handled a brain injury case resulting from a construction accident, no matter how good he or she is at handling motor vehicle accident cases.

Even Great Lawyers Aren’t Great for All Types of Cases

Just as physicians focus on particular areas of practice, attorneys develop areas of competence around particular specialties.  If you needed a hip replacement, you would seek the advice of an orthopedic surgeon.  If your child had bronchitis you would seek the advice of a pediatrician.  If you have suffered a serious personal injury as a result of medical malpractice, an attorney who has successfully handled many car accident cases but few malpractice cases may not be the best attorney for your case, and vice versa.  Unlike lawyer referral services that simply match attorneys to cases based on how much an attorney pays to advertise on the page and his or her geographic location, our proprietary database classifies each AJN certified attorney based on his or her specific experiences to insure that you are matched with the “right” lawyer for your case.  

Why it’s Important to Select the Right Lawyer

There are many reasons why it’s important to find a lawyer who has the right experience.  First, he or she will have the specific knowledge and know-how that your case requires.  Second, he or she will have extensive knowledge of this area of law, including knowledge of the defense lawyers as well as the various experts in that field.  Conversely, the defense lawyers will have greater respect for him or her as will the insurance companies or other parties who may be responsible for payment of any damages.  Law, like medicine, has become extremely specialized. But unlike medicine, it is difficult for a client, without the help of AJN, to locate the lawyer with the right mix of trial experience and specialized knowledge.

We are not suggesting that there is only one lawyer that can handle your case.  But with the information at AJN’s disposal, we believe we have a better chance than any other lawyer referral service of matching you with a lawyer that will obtain the best results possible.  And that means a greater chance that your case will settle for the value it should—without having to go to trial!

AJN’s Role is to be Your Own Personal Risk Manager

A crucial part of AJN’s service is to manage our clients’ risk.  Our experience has shown time and again that defense lawyers and insurance companies will not offer huge dollars to unseasoned or unskilled lawyers as they do not believe those lawyers have the skills necessary to convince a jury to award a large verdict.  During the handling of many insurance bad faith claims, the principal at AJN has learned that insurance companies often evaluate a claim by looking at the attorney representing the plaintiff.  Having the right attorney representing you often can influence a defense attorney or insurance company as to whether or not to settle and how much money to offer.

We believe having the most qualified attorney for your specific needs is crucial to getting the compensation you need and deserve.
