How to hire a personal injury lawyer

Ran into a Milwaukee criminal lawyer today. His firm handles drunk driving, misdemeanors and felonies in Milwaukee. The lawyer told me his law firm may "start advertising for Milwaukee personal injury cases." Thus, the lawyers there may dabble in Milwaukee personal injury cases even though they have never handled or tried a personal injury case in Milwaukee, in Wisconsin or elsewhere.

My strong recommendation is that you be cautious about relying on advertising as a way to find your personal injury lawyer. I strongly advise you to make sure your personal injury attorney is active in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers. I recommend that your lawyer is recongnized by Martindale-Hubbell as an AV® rated attorney and that your attorney speak on issues specifically addressing personal injury law. If you find a lawyer meeting these qualifications, then you are well on your way to finding a qualified Wisconsin personal injury lawyer.
