How to Choose the Best Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

When looking to partner with a lawyer to protect your loved one, there are various factors you should look into. These include: 

Experience and Skills

A law firm’s official website can provide an abundance of information that will provide insight into their experience and skills regarding nursing home abuse cases. Many websites even have information about the individual attorneys who provide services from the firm. These pages will offer details on the experience an attorney has in handling cases similar to yours.

Also, if you go to the New York State Unified Court System attorney online services search webpage, you can enter an attorney’s name. Here, you can find the law school the attorney attended, when they were admitted to the bar, and if the attorney has any disciplinary history attached to them. 

A Proven Track Record

A lawyer’s track record for dealing with similar cases is important to factor into your decision as well. This can show how successful they’ve been in protecting their clients and getting them the compensation they deserve. 

Another source of information about an attorney’s proven track record is their Google Business Profile page. This page contains their review rating and specific reviews about their services. For example, you can verify from the reviews what kind of cases they handled and how the clients responded to the results. You can also see if the clients were happy with their relationship with the attorney.

Answers During Free Case Evaluations

You can ask questions confirming a lawyer’s qualifications and experience in specific cases like yours during a free evaluation, which many law firms provide. You can ask how many cases like yours have been handled, their success rates for nursing home abuse cases, and for references or testimonials that attest to that success rate.

While asking questions during your free case evaluation, see if the attorney you’re consulting answers your questions directly, provides clear explanations, and addresses your concerns thoroughly. Communication is key in an attorney-client relationship. Notice if the lawyer can talk about complicated legal concepts in a way you can understand. The attorney should be attentive and empathetic, not distracted, as you explain your issue.
