Why You Need A Local Accident Lawyer Near You
If you have been in an accident, local court and ethics rules require that your case be handled by an attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state---because laws vary from state-to-state. But these days many out-of-state attorneys and law firms advertising on TV and the internet. They don't have a local office; they aren't licensed to practice law in the local jurisdiction. What they have is large advertising budgets.
In most cases they will talk with potential clients over the phone; sign up new clients via fax, email or esignature; then refer the client to a less-experienced lawyer in your state. That attorney may or may not have the skills, abilities and experience to handle your case competently. And that attorney is basically working at a discount because the advertising firm takes a percentage of the attorney’s fees in the case as a "finder's fee."
So an out-of-state firm that isn't licensed to practice law in your local area farms out your case to a less experienced local who, because they will not earn a full attorney fee, doesn't have much incentive to do a good job.
