Before my motorcycle accident, I had never worked with an attorney (nor
had I ever been involved in an auto accident, or even stayed a night in
a hospital). So after the accident, which had me in 2 different hospitals
for several surgeries over a total of 17 days, I had some research to do!
I searched online for the best motorcycle injury lawyers in California.
I contacted several of the firms that showed up in the results…
and that’s where things got very easy!
Nearly every response I got to my initial inquiry asked the same questions:
“Was the other driver at fault?”, “How badly were you
injured?”, and “How much were your medical bills?”.
Mitch, however, responded by asking how I was recovering, telling me a
bit about the procedure for cases like mine, giving me some information
about himself, and giving me quite a bit of information on things to look
for when choosing a lawyer. For me, that made it a simple choice.
After some initial paperwork, we were off and running.
That is, Mitch was off and running – I was starting physical therapy
to get back to walking again!
From there, the process was not very exciting (which is a good thing).
Mitch took care of everything so I could focus on recovering from my injuries.
He kept me informed of what was going on and always took the time to answer
any questions I had for him. We were able to handle almost all of our
communication electronically, which worked out very well for me (Mitch’s
office is several hundred miles away from where I live!).
The end of the case is what impressed me the most, and here’s why:
In my case, Mitch was working on a contingency fee basis, which means he
would be paid a percentage of the total settlement amount “off-the-top”
(before medical insurance or any other fees were paid back).
After the settlement amount was agreed upon, Mitch spent several additional
weeks working on my case to reduce the amount that I would owe to the
medical insurance company, ultimately saving me over $150,000.
Mitch going that extra mile, despite the fact that it would not increase
his own payment at all, showed me that he’s in it for his clients,
not just for himself; that is one of the strongest reasons that I would
recommend Mitch and his team to anyone!
