The Right Attorney

The ultimate weapon in ending your legal dispute is a jury trial. Most lawyers don’t know how to try cases. They don’t like trying cases and they often don't have the financial resources to take your case all the way.

Phil Ganong has tried more cases to verdict than most plaintiff attorneys. In fact, he tried his first two cases to verdict when he was still in law school. 

When the “other side” is unreasonable or walking on your legal rights, you need a trial lawyer who is not afraid of taking your case into the courtroom.

When you are choosing an attorney, ask yourself two questions:

  • What’s the lawyer’s jury verdict track record?
  • Does the lawyer have the experience to use the ultimate weapon – a trial – to win for you?

Tips on Selecting a Lawyer

The lawyer you hire can mean the difference between winning or losing your case. If you need an attorney, be an educated consumer.

You want an attorney who has experience in your type of case. The law has become very complex, so an attorney who knows the particular area of law that your case involves is critical to the result you will get.

Reputation Do online research to check out the attorney you are thinking of hiring. See what press coverage the attorney has had. Check with California State Bar to make sure the lawyer is in good standing. Read the attorney’s website and make a note of any honors received and bar association memberships. Ask any lawyers you know about the attorney.

Personality You are going to be spending a lot of time together, so make sure you and your attorney click on a personal level. Determine at your first meeting if the lawyer makes you feel comfortable and is willing to answer questions. Get a feel for the office staff, because when you hire an attorney, you also are hiring the legal staff.

Make sure the attorney graduated from an accredited law school. The American Bar Association lists schools it has approved.
