Never had to retain an injury attorney before? In today’s episode, Mike discusses the process and takes some of the mystery out of it.
Hi I’m Mike Hancock of the Hancock Law Firm Law firm and what I found over the years is that the majority of my clients have never had to talk with an attorney before about a problem of their own and for that reason in this video I’m going to explain the process of what you can expect when you call Hancock law firm to discuss your legal claim.
One of the main differences you’re going to find with my law firm versus some of the large advertising firms is that when you call my law firm you’re actually going to have an opportunity to speak with me about your case, not some paralegal not some legal assistant but you’re actually going to have an opportunity to speak with me and meet with me if you want. Before we actually sit down together in before I actually talk with you on the phone you’re going to be speaking with one of my legal assistance and they’re going take down some initial information about the nature of your case. When it happened where it happened how it happened in just a brief overview of what type of case you have whether it’s a car accident case whether it’s a slip-and-fall case whether its premises liability case a dog bite case or a wrongful death case, my legal assistant will then pass on that information to me if I’m available in the office at that time I’ll get on the phone with you and discuss your case and we might have a discussion about 10 or 15 minutes in and I’m going to ask you all types of questions and by end of that 10-15 minute I’m going to be able to evaluate your claim I’m going to be able to discuss with you whether I think it’s a case that my law firm represents you on and at that point if we make that decision that you want my firm to represent you.
The next step will be for you to come into the office and have an in-depth consultation. Now that consultation usually last about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes and that’s with me. I meet with every single new client there my firm takes on as a new client in you’re not going to find that with any large law firm not going find that with any advertising law firm, and the reason that this is so important to me is that I can take my 29 years of experience and not only working for eight years trying cases for the insurance industry and the remaining twenty years of representing people like yourself and injury and death claims I can take my experience in ask you this type of questions that I know important to be able to pursue your claim. Questions and answers to those questions that are fresh in your mind shortly after an accident happens that will affect how your claim is pursued. And so at the end of that hour to an hour and fifteen minute discussion that you and I will have, if you want at that time if a decision is made on my law firm to represent you at that time we will have signed a fee agreement will sign a bunch of authorizations that will allow me to give your medical records your employment records that there’s lost wages use in some other authorizations that will allow me to pursue the claim for you. So that’s a brief overview what you can expect during your initial phone call to the law firm and during your initial consultation with me for more questions feel free to give me a call at 8139151110.
