Hire A Law Firm With An In-House Litigation/Trial Department
Always ask if the firm you are hiring has an “in-house” Massachusetts-based trial department. Always ask the law firm you hire where their law firm home office is. If it is out of state, that’s a red flag.
The next question is to ask for a list of their in-house lawyers that have a license to practice law in Massachusetts. Without a Massachusetts license, a non-local lawyer is not co-counsel on a Massachusetts case.
Most importantly, research the law firm you are considering choosing and look at all their reviews and results for their home state, other states and the state you are located in. Don’t hire a firm that is a jack of all trades/states and a master of none. After looking at all the pitfalls of hiring an out-of-state referral-based law firm, it will become very clear that hiring a long-established local personal injury Massachusetts law firm with excellent reviews and proven results is the best option! Do your research, as picking the proper firm is often one of the biggest decisions that will impact the outcome of your case.
