What Makes a Good Personal Injury Lawyer?

June 5, 2015

If you have suffered a personal injury, your very livelihood may hang in the balance.  The short- and long-term effects of a motor vehicle accident or medical malpractice can leave you unable to earn a living, incapable of covering your steep medical bills, and wondering how you are going to get the money you need to support yourself and your family.  Finding yourself in this situation can be frightening, but a good personal injury lawyer can assist you in putting your life back together following an accident or injury.  But what makes a good personal injury lawyer?

A Good Personal Injury Lawyer is Dedicated to Clients and the Profession

While many will differ on what exactly makes a good personal injury lawyer, the National Board of Trial Advocacy’s Certification Guidelines are a great, fixed set of qualities that plaintiffs deserve from their personal injury lawyers.  The Guidelines include:

  • At least five years in practice
  • Substantial involvement in the practice area (personal injury law)
  • Start-to-finish trial experience
  • Reputational excellence within the field

(For the full, verbatim Guidelines, click here.)

Only about 3% of American lawyers are NBTA certified under the Guidelines.  Included among that 3% is Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA’s James Lowe, whose April recertification continues more than twenty years as an NBTA certified member in good standing.
