If you’ve been in an accident, you might be asking yourself, “Who is the best accident lawyer near me?” You’ve probably seen or heard ads for law firms but didn’t expect to ever actually need that information. Now you do. Where should you go? Who should you call?

Why should I hire a local lawyer?

Nowadays, cross-country communication is easier than ever. Because of this, there are some large law firms that will take cases for clients from across the country. In a society where bigger is usually better, it can be tempting to want to work with a large firm like this. But choosing an attorney isn’t like ordering off the menu—bigger isn’t necessarily better.

At the biggest law firms, you are just a case number. When you work with a local lawyer, you are a person with a name, a face, and a story to tell. You will be able to sit down face-to-face with your local attorney to tell your story and get the help and guidance you need. It may sound convenient working with your lawyer by phone, but it is no replacement for meeting in person. It allows your lawyer to get to know you more personally. The better you know people, the better you can help them.

Local lawyers know and understand the local culture. They live where you live. They will understand your situation better than someone who may not have ever stepped foot in your city or state. They also have more local tools and knowledge to be able to help you.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, they are more likely to be familiar with the intersection where it occurred. If you’re dealing with a regional insurance company, they are more likely to be familiar with the policies and procedures of that company.

They’re also more familiar with the local police departments, court systems, and other local entities. All these local connections add up to better service for you.

Why Is Wells, Call, Clark, Bennet & Clawson the best local law firm?

There is a reason we were voted Best Law Firm in Solano County. In fact, we believe there are several reasons people in our community have come to trust us.

First of all, to us, you are never just a number. We take the time to get to know you so that we can help you. We believe it is our job to help you through the entire recovery process, not just do the minimum necessary to earn a payday. When you hire us, we are on your team. We are there to help you get the treatment you need and the justice you deserve. Helping you recover compensation in the form of money is only part of that process. We are here to help the whole person.

Speaking of money, like many firms, we take many cases on contingency fee contracts. Basically, that means you don’t pay us anything unless we win your case. Unlike many firms, we resolve to never take more from a settlement that our client takes. That means we won’t walk away with more in our pocket than you do.

At some firms, most of the work is done by legal aides with a lawyer just supervising. You wouldn’t want even the most qualified and competent dental assistant to perform your root canal while the dentist checks in occasionally. Why would you want to make compromises on your legal service? You don’t want to. And we don’t want you to either. At our firm, you will have a lawyer personally handling your case to make sure you are getting the best legal advice and service possible.

We care about our clients. And it shows in the way we treat them and handle their cases. If you have a personal injury case, we are here to help you locally. Please contact us today.
