Oakley Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer
Oakley is a city of just more than 35,000 residents in Contra Costa County. It is part of the Bay Area. Although Oakley was only incorporated as a city in 1999, its history goes back to prehistoric times. The city contains four prehistoric sites, one of which is a shell mound discovered in the early 20th century.

Today, everybody is on social media. Do not underestimate the power of using social media to connect with others and review companies. Work with a law firm that has a substantial social media presence. This shows that the firm is willing to adapt to our changing world to effectively connect with its clients and prospective clients.
Social media is just one element of a firm's online presence. The firm should also have reviews on third-party websites like Avvo, Yelp, and Google and a well-developed website of its own. Work with a law firm that has invested the time to develop its website, list client testimonials, and make public its past verdicts and settlements. This shows that the firm wants to share information about its successes with prospective clients, not hide potential embarrassments.
The third-party websites discussed above show client testimonials in a format that the firm cannot control. Although this serves a similar purpose to social media, review sites often feature more in-depth reviews of companies. Use the reviews you find online to guide your search for a personal injury law firm.How to Select an Oakley Personal Injury Attorney
Watch our helpful video: How to Choose the Right Personal Injury Lawyer. Use the following video as a guide to speaking with potential Oakley personal injury lawyers.
Use the following guidelines to choose the best lawyer to handle your case:
- Select an attorney who focuses on personal injury law, not a lawyer who has multiple practice areas;
- A good lawyer should be responsive to your inquiries. Do not work with a firm that does not return your calls or emails;
- Work with a lawyer who has trial experience. Although you might not need to go to court to resolve your claim, it is good to be prepared to do so if necessary; and
- Your lawyer should be somebody you feel comfortable speaking with rather than somebody who intimidates you or makes you feel anxious.
