Need a Personal Injury Lawyer? Here’s Why You Should Choose a Small Law Firm

Personal injury cases are some of the most common types of legal cases. That being said, there are many different types of personal injury cases, and if you want proper legal help, it’s important to be aware of the differences in service and satisfaction you may experience when working with a small law office as opposed to a large law office. Here are just a few reasons to choose a small law firm to provide legal help for your personal injury case.

Increased Focus on Individual Client Needs

First, it’s important to note that smaller law offices are generally more focused on client needs and overall success rates. Larger law firms are more concerned with their appearance, which is why they spend so much on cheesy advertisements and make guarantees they just can’t live up to. But the smaller client base of smaller firms allows each lawyer to spend more time on the case and unique needs of each and every one of their individual clients.

More Affordable

As is the case with many other ‘brands,’ when you work with a large law firm, you’re often just paying for the name. The payment rate doesn’t always correlate with the caliber of service and legal expertise you’ll be provided with, so don’t assume that a larger firm with twice the fees will boost the chances of your case’s success.

“Larger law firms have more clients, and this circumstance presents more opportunities for conflicts…Large law firms also typically have much higher billing rates than smaller law firms do. Many clients do not want to pay the billing rates of larger law firms,” writes Harrison Barnes on LawCrossing.

More Trial Experience

Finally, this isn’t always the case, but many times, you’ll find that lawyers at smaller firms have more trial experience than those at larger firms. Even though 95% to 96% of personal injury cases are settled pretrial, this is still important to keep in mind when deciding which type of law firm suits your needs best.

Ultimately, understanding these reasons to choose a smaller firm is the key to ensuring maximum chances of success during your personal injury case. For more information about personal injury claims, contact Baird Mandalas Law.
