San Antonio Lawyers and Attorneys

What factors should a potential client consider before hiring an attorney? Are all attorneys created equal? Are they personable and approachable? We hope that with this information, we will answer most, if not all of the questions that you may have as a consumer, before hiring an attorney. This information is use as instructional and may not be considered as legal advise or in any way as to forming attorney client communications or privity.

First, is good to know that not all lawyers handle all matters. There are some lawyers who will consider themselves as general practitioners, but for the most parts, they are not experts on any particular area. On the other hand, there are attorneys who will only handle particular matters. For example, personal injury, family law, business law, criminal law. Answer this question: are you filing a civil lawsuit or have a criminal matter? What size settlement are you seeking? Lawyers who handle divorce cases may have helped someone you know, but be at a total loss as to how to help you arrange for an adoption. Figure out the reasons why you need an attorney and what you wish to accomplish before picking up the phone and calling the lawyer or law firm.

Second, most attorneys will provide a free initial consultation either over the phone or in person to learn more about the reasons you are needing the help of an attorney as well as to learn your goals in securing an attorney’s services. Consider the consultation as a time for you to learn if you feel comfortable with the personality of an individual attorney as well as to ask about fees, terms of payment, as well as possibilities for out-of-court settlement.

Thirdly, respectable law firms have internet, blogg and other form of information about themselves and their services. Please visit their website in order to obtain the information that you may be looking for pertaining the particular lawyer or law firm. Also, see if their website shows up on search engines and others.

Finally, the bar association in Texas offers a referral line to provide the names and contact information of attorneys licensed in Texas. Conversely, they will provide at least the names of some attorneys whose area of practice is best suited to your needs. As a practical matter, don’t be fooled into thinking that the best attorneys always have the biggest ads in the yellow pages. Very often the best attorneys have small listings because they have built a successful practice based on their good reputation.

Insurance companies delaying tactics, who benefits?

Even before the Mckinsey documents were ever discovered by Plaintiff’s attorneys, insurance companies have been attempting to capitalize on the fact that–most personal injury lawyers–depend on the quick settlement of cases, in order to continue doing business. Moreover, client’s impatience sometimes may aggravate the situation. Insurance companies, knowing this facts, are notorious in stalling for time, in order to maximize their shareholder’s profit, and not necessarily their client’s (insured person) liability exposure.

This is particularly true for Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Un-Insured Motorist claims (UM), or most commonly known as no fault claims. Because of the aforementioned practice by insurance companies, many major insurance companies in the United States could be violating the bath faith dealings with their clients. In essence, the same tactics encompassed on the Mckinsey documents.

The Mckinsey documents turned the insurance industry upside down. They're from a business consultant hired by Allstate to boost profits. The consultant suggested a new business model that critics say is now widely used to shortchange accident victims who file a claim. For instance, Allstate has changed their "good hands" to "boxing gloves" attitude. This is only in relation to paying on claims, not with their presentation to the public at large.

In the past, Insurance companies used to focus on making money by selling more policies. But McKinsey offered a way to boost the bottom line without selling more policies or raising premiums. Resent studies revealed that claims payments in general have been dropping industry-wide. Many insurers say they're not being dishonest, they're reducing fraud, which they say was once widespread. But experts say many insurance companies are feeling the competitive pressure to keep premiums down, and this is one way to do that and still make money. Like they need to make even more money!

In the end, who benefits by the tactics used by insurance companies? Insurance companies. Consumers like you and I are left sometimes to fend for ourselves because let’s face it, if the case is not worth fighting for, who is going to take on the Big Insurance Company?
