How to Choose the Best Mesothelioma Lawyer

By Nathaniel Hutchinson

Mesothelioma patients and their loved ones have a lot on their plates. A good attorney can make life much easier; but, how do you choose the right one? Here are five tips for selecting the best mesothelioma lawyer for your specific case.

Look local and national. While a local mesothelioma attorney might get you a good award, national firms are typically certified to practice in multiple states. This allows them to file your case in areas that might get you a higher reward. Local firms may not always have the certifications, knowledge or experience to do this.

Make sure they have experience. When choosing the best mesothelioma lawyer for your case, you should prioritize experience above virtually all else. Be sure to select a firm that has handled multiple asbestos lawsuits and understands asbestos trust funds.

Avoid attorneys that want upfront money. Choose a mesothelioma law firm that works on a contingency basis. This means they only get paid a percentage of any compensation a judge or jury awards you. Since they get nothing if your lawsuit fails, this will motivate the lawyer to work harder on your behalf.

Be sure they will do most of the work. When selecting a lawyer, make sure he or she is willing and able to do all the big and little things needed to help you win your case. This means doing all the paperwork and traveling to research your asbestos exposure. Ideally, you should only have to give a recorded deposition for your case.

Choose someone who communicates well. Your mesothelioma attorney should inspire confidence and trust. He or she should be a good and willing communicator, who can explain your case and respond to your questions in a timely manner. Although it’s not critical to your case, it’s always better to have a good rapport with your lawyer.
