Living in Antioch

Antioch was once a big mining city, Antioch is now a cheaper choice of living for residents working in San Francisco and Oakland. One of my favorite things to do when I visit Antioch is to check out one of the 31 parks and walking paths.

Visiting Antioch

Visitors should not miss the historical part of Antioch, either. Whether you love arts, museums, or planetariums, Antioch has it. There is not enough time in a short trip to Antioch to visit all of the beautiful places the city offers.

Why Is Your Office in Sacramento?

You may feel a bit apprehensive about choosing me as your personal injury lawyer. It’s an hour long drive from Antioch to Sacramento, and that is just one way. There are plenty of personal injury attorneys in and around Antioch who would gladly take your case on. If you are wondering why I serve clients in Antioch, my answer is simple. Read on to find out why.

Choosing the Perfect Personal Injury Attorney for Your Case

If you are looking for an attorney to help you obtain the compensation you rightly deserve, it’s not about choosing just any attorney that handles personal injury law, it’s about selecting the perfect attorney for your case.

Here are some crucial pointers for you to consider while you are searching for the perfect personal injury lawyer for your case:

  • It is vital to find a personal injury attorney who seems like they are truly interested in your needs and your wants, as well as someone who cares about you and your family.
  • You also want to select an attorney who exclusively practices personal injury law. Not a jack-of-all-trades type of lawyer. Lawyers who practice several areas of law rarely have the skill required to successfully win serious personal injury cases.
  • In the event your personal injury case cannot be settled and proceeds to court, having an attorney who is familiar with the inner workings of a personal injury courtroom is critical.
  • With that said, you also need to find an attorney who has the resources to take your case to court, if it becomes necessary. Preparing a serious personal injury case for trial can cost $150,000 and up. Not only do you want to choose a lawyer with trial experience, you also want one who has the financial ability to pursue your case in a trial, just in case the lawyer does not settle fairly.
  • You also need to find a lawyer who can prove a long history of successful litigations. This includes verdicts and settlements with impressively high figures. Do not hesitate to ask prospective lawyers about this – if they have a successful past of representing clients, they will be more than happy to disclose this information to you.
  • Research potentials lawyers on Yelp, Avvo, and Google Plus, just like you would research potential products or other services you are interested in purchasing.

I created this YouTube video to help you choose the personal injury lawyer that is perfect for your case.
