Attorney Profiles


Selecting the right attorney to represent you is difficult, even under the best of circumstances. There is no clear understanding of what to look for, and there is a lot at stake. It’s true for everyone. My elderly parents live in another state and were in desperate need of an attorney to help them through the financial aspects of a health care crisis. I foolishly thought it would be easy for me to find a qualified attorney to resolve their situation. After all, I was an attorney and thought I knew what to look for.

Little did I know how difficult it would be. Since I did not know any attorneys where my parents lived, I could not get a recommendation from someone I trusted. So I immediately got online and looked at a number of attorney rating services, e.g.,, I followed up on a number of the attorneys listed and looked at their websites. None of them were of any help. Some of the attorneys just listed health care law as one of the many things they did. Others offered little or no information to lead me to believe they knew anything about that area of law. And still others dripped with fake sentiment about understanding my parents pain.

Now I was even more confused. I finally resolved to schedule a consultation with two attorneys who practiced health care law exclusively. Although the first one had an extensive resume of accomplishments in health care law, I got the impression my parents would be just another number as she pressured me to close the deal. The second one was very knowledgeable but I got the sense he was overwhelmed with cases and would not necessarily have a lot of time for my parents’ case. Desperate, I picked the second one which worked out, for the most part, but there were a lot of frustrating delays. It definitely could have been a much better experience.

Selecting an attorney shouldn’t be that difficult or nerve-racking. It’s our goal to take the guesswork out of deciding whether to hire our firm. Here, you get what you see.
