10 questions you should ask before hiring a personal injury attorney
1. Do you limit your practice to personal injury and wrongful death?
Just as there are different kinds of doctors, there are different kinds of lawyers. Some are general practitioners (who have a strong general knowledge in many areas of the law), while others limit their practice to just one field – such as personal injury and wrongful death, divorce, tax law, bankruptcy, criminal, and so on.
At BLACKBURN & GREEN, we limit our practice to just personal injury and wrongful death law. By concentrating our efforts on just one area, we’re able to devote more time, energy, and experience to each client.
2. Did every partner graduate with honors?
In order to graduate with honors from law school, it takes desire, discipline and dedication. When you find an attorney who graduated from law school with honors, you can be assured that he or she has worked hard to obtain the knowledge and proven discipline to professionally handle your case.
Tom Blackburn and R.T. Green both graduated with honors from Indiana University School of Law, one of the most prestigious law schools in the Midwest.
3. How many years of experience do you have?
When it comes to personal injury and wrongful death law, there’s no substitute for experience. Together, Tom Blackburn and R.T. Green have over 60 years of legal experience and have represented victims throughout the Midwest, California, Colorado, Florida, New York, North Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Before founding their own personal injury law firm, each gained valuable experience by serving in various legal capacities. Those positions include deputy prosecuting attorney, circuit court judge, insurance company defense lawyer, and general practitioner.
