However, how can you choose which one is the best? It may seem obvious that qualifications are key in answer to this question.
However, this is not actually the case.
Obviously it is nice to have someone well qualified, but what is written on paper does not demonstrate their abilities in court or their negotiation skills.
A lawyer should be able to represent you well in court and therefore it is nice to know that they have won a lot of previous court cases.
It is also good if they can manage to settle out of court a lot, because this is often a better option.
However, you do want to know that should the case go to trial, that they will be able to stand up, give the right sort of evidence and get you the compensation that you deserve.
You should be able to get information about their cases form them and therefore find out how many have been successful and how many have not been.
If they will not give you this information or a way to prove it, then it is probably nor worth dealing with them at all.
It may seem like hard work to find this out.
But it could make a big difference to your case and so a few hours of research could really pay off for you.
Put in the effort and you will reap the rewards.
