Navigating through the sometimes complex legal system can be difficult for even the most seasoned and knowledgeable person. When it comes to an issue as important as settling a long-term disability claim, there isn't much room for mistakes. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can work for you to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
How Do I Choose the Right Attorney?
Even a brief online search will reveal that there are a staggering number of attorneys offering their services. How can you be sure which one will represent you the best? There are a number of variables to consider when seeking out a long-term disability lawyer. Here are just a few you should consider:
Does the lawyer specialize in LTD?
At first glance, this may seem like an obvious place to start, but it is an important point, nonetheless. You wouldn't want to hire an attorney who specializes in real estate and business law to handle your long-term disability claims.
Is the lawyer in good standing with the Bar Association?
If you should desire to verify a potential counselor's credentials, you are in luck. You can double check an attorney's credentials by contacting the Alabama or Mississippi State Bar Association.
References and referrals from people you know who have worked with a particular attorney are an extremely valuable resource. Speaking with past clients can lend you insight into the personality, professionalism, and experience of a lawyer.
Interview the Prospective Lawyer
Once you find a lawyer whom you feel is a potential match, it would be beneficial to set up a one-on-one meeting. Ask important questions, not only about your case but also about the lawyer personally. Personalities do matter; you should feel at ease with your representative and it is more than acceptable to walk away if the situation doesn't feel good to you.
