Choosing the right personal injury attorney to help you with your case can be a very difficult decision. After an accident or injury, one must be overwhelmed as one scrolls through the long list of lawyers and determines the next steps.
Lem Garcia, a world-class personal injury attorney in Los Angeles County and founder of Lem Garcia Law, says it is absolutely important that you select the right personal injury attorney to help you. “You will be working closely with your attorney for a good amount of time on a very important matter. So it is important that you like her and be able to place your trust in you.”
Lem is the son of two Filipino immigrant parents who instilled in him the value of hard work, humility, and kindness from a young age. “When I was growing up, I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I knew that I wanted to somehow help people,” remembers Lem. He decided to study journalism in order to raise awareness of global issues that Lem believed people were not aware of. Realizing that people knew about these issues and were just too tormented by their own problems to do anything about them, Lem decided to be more direct and practical to help others and enrolled in law school .
He graduated from law school and soon after founded his law firm. Seven years later, Lem Garcia Law has grown into one of the most prestigious law firms in Southern California and has really improved the lives of many hardworking community members. “We pride ourselves on making things as simple and transparent as possible for our customers,” says Lem. “I want to make sure my clients feel they can turn to me and be sure they are getting the best service and result for their case.”
Lem Garcia has never lost his desire to help people, and while his company has been instrumental in hundreds of lives, he knows that he cannot help everyone. “I’m afraid most people don’t know what to look for when choosing a lawyer or attorney for any kind of personal injury,” says Lem. He is determined to ensure that anyone in need of assistance makes the best decision for themselves.
- Read the reviews. Find out about your prospective attorney and their reviews online. You can get an idea of the experiences, customer approach and skills of the past. This is a great way to get honest, informative feedback on your prospective attorney before you even get in touch.
- Give them a call. Don’t be afraid to call the phone and speak to the attorney handling your case. If you cannot speak to the attorney it is a red flag that you may not get the best service and results. Once you’ve spoken to the attorney, take the time to make sure you are comfortable and that this is the right game. Trust your intuition. Make sure you have a good feel for the lawyer and that this is someone you can relate to. If you are feeling bad, your instincts are likely right and this is not the lawyer for you.
- Appreciate their honesty. Some lawyers will tell you everything they think they hear so they can keep you as a client. The best lawyers are very open with you and will tell you the good, bad, and ugly about your case and not try to sell you anything. They will just be there to guide you and give you the best possible result. If you feel like someone is just telling you what you want to hear, even if they aren’t, you should keep looking for a lawyer who can give you a completely honest assessment of your case. You have to trust your lawyer fully.
Lem Garcia and his team are unable to take over every case, but they are committed to being a valuable legal resource in the community and reaching a place that people can turn to to get help. If they encounter a case or problem that is beyond their scope, they know other lawyers who can help.
Choosing the right lawyer doesn’t have to be stressful. With the right planning and preparation, anyone can enter their client-attorney relationship and feel prepared and comfortable. To learn more about Lem Garcia Law or to schedule a free consultation, visit www.lemgarcialaw.com.
