Mesothelioma Lawsuit, William Kherkher

Things to Keep in Mind when you Meet with your Asbestos Lawyer

If you have any access to the media, either through television, the radio, the Internet or all three, then you no doubt have been inundated with advertising that’s geared towards bringing legal claims against those who are responsible for asbestos exposure. Like any other product or service that’s advertised, you may also have become somewhat desensitized to the underlying issue and its severity.

That’s a truly unfortunate development, and another unfortunate reality is that there is almost a sort of ‘cottage industry’ of asbestos claims forming, as law firms and asbestos lawyers all over the United States are currently taking calls and scheduling appointments for people who have suffered as a result of exposure to asbestos.

Williams Hart is a law firm that has represented innumerable clients who have been harmed by asbestos, and we have also heard several sad tales not only of the exposure to asbestos and resulting diseases, but also of other professionals who have claimed to offer help but have not generally produced the results promised.

Therefore, we’d like to present to you a few things to keep in mind if you do wind up meeting with an asbestos lawyer, as the way your questions are answered and the issues that your attorney are willing to discuss should help you determine whether or not you should move forward with that representative.

Your Initial Meeting

When you meet with an asbestos lawyer, you should be the one to ask the first set of questions. There are many that you should ask, even if they make you feel somewhat uncomfortable. For instance, you need to ask how long the attorney has been in practice, and how many asbestos victims he or she has represented. Experience is crucial in a situation such as this one.

You should also ask how many of these clients’ claims have proceeded to trial. Generally, a reputable asbestos lawyer will work towards the best solution for you, and that sometimes means that a case will have to proceed to trial. If your attorney has handled hundreds of these cases and never gone to trial, that could be an issue that will come back to haunt you by way of being pressured to take an early settlement offer, even if it isn’t the best solution for you.

Finally, you should also ask the attorney if he or she has any record of discipline with his or her bar association. When an attorney is disciplined, it’s almost always a public record, and you can access these records on your state bar association’s Web site.

Williams Hart is a law firm that only proceeds one way – with your best interest at the top of the priority list. If that means that your case needs to go all the way through a trial, then that’s what will happen. Contact an asbestos lawyer at Williams Hart today to schedule a free initial consultation.
