If you have a potential wrongful death claim here in Ventura, how do you go about choosing the best attorney for your case? The attorney that you choose to hire is going to be one of the most important decisions that you will make about your case. The good thing is you get to choose. You get to decide who is going to be your attorney and who is going to stand between you and the insurance company in your case. How do you go about finding the best Ventura County attorney for your wrongful death claim? Number one, you need a Ventura lawyer who’s a real trial lawyer. Most wrongful death cases are going to go into litigation. The insurance companies keep records on all attorneys. They know who’s a trial attorney who has the skill and the experience to build a case so that you will be ready, willing, and able to go to trial if that’s required. They also know who folds and will take pennies on the dollar.

In addition to that, a wrongful death claim here in Ventura can often take years to get resolved or take to court because they are very complicated cases. You need a very close working relationship with your attorney. The way you find the best attorney who will have the best relationship with you is to call a number of attorneys. See who will take the time to listen to you, answer all of your questions, and who you feel actually cares and is concerned about your case. Think about it this way. If you think an attorney who is working in a big firm down in LA is going to make you a priority up here in Ventura, you’re highly mistaken. You’re going to be just another file, just a number to that firm. You need somebody who is here in Ventura, who can meet with you, and you can look eye to eye and talk to on a personal level. It’s very important because your attorney needs to know how this wrongful death claim has impacted your entire life. If you don’t have an attorney who cares, who really cares, who takes the time to get to know you, they will never be able to fully develop your case and you will never get a full and fair resolution of your case.

Once you talk to a number of attorneys, ask yourself this: who did I feel had my best interest at heart? Who gave me the time of day? Who took the time to figure out what my concerns were? Who answered my questions? At the end of the day, I think you’re going to come to the conclusion that I am the one who has spent the time with you, that I will do what is necessary to protect your interest, and to make sure that your story is heard, so that you are fully and fairly compensated for your Ventura County wrongful death claim.
