1. Contingency Fees

One of the main reasons people hesitate to hire the legal representation they need is because they are worried about the price. Most personal injury attorneys work off of contingency fees, meaning they take a percentage of the final damages instead of requiring payment upfront.

What many of these attorneys don’t tell you, however, is that they typically charge up to 33%, the maximum allowed by many state laws! At Michael R. Varble & Associates, PC, we are proud to offer top-quality legal counsel with contingency fees of just 25%. This means that you can get the dedicated legal representation you need at no risk, and will get to keep more of the money we recover for you!

2. Focus

It’s important to look for an attorney who focuses a large amount of their practice to personal injury. These claims can be highly complex, and require an advocate who understands how to achieve the best possible results on your behalf. Our firm is committed to helping people resolve their difficult legal issues, and have received numerous accolades for our work in personal injury cases.

3. Experience

Would you have more faith in a lawyer who has practiced for 15 years, or an attorney who’s fresh out of law school? Experience matters, and can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. As a former liability defense attorney, Michael R. Varble has a unique understanding of the inner workings of these cases and how the liable parties will work to deny or mitigate your claim. With more than 20 years of litigation experience, our firm knows how to get results.

4. Results & Feedback

A lawyer is only as good as the results they are able to obtain for their clients. Look for reviews from past clients, and make sure your attorney is well regarded by them. It can also be helpful to look at any awards the firm has won. Attorney Varble has been given an “Excellent” rating by Avvo, and has received their Clients’ Choice and Top Contributor awards for his personal injury practice.

5. Personality

Pursuing a personal injury claim is not typically a quick process, and you will be working with your attorney for weeks or months to come. It’s important to make sure your lawyer is someone you can get along with. They don’t need to be your best friend, but you should trust that they are truly dedicated to your interests. If you and your attorney don’t get along, will they go the extra mile to get you the best possible results?
