Why Hire A Local Law Firm?

Many non-local law firms have infiltrated our local area that are often seen in TV commercials, on billboards, and on internet advertising. These extensive marketing campaigns can make any injury law firm look like a shining star in the injury firm arena. It is important to see through this possible misrepresentation and do your own research in picking the right law firm.

Many of these lawyers and firms are located across the state, or across the country, even though they “appear” to be local. Some of these firms are merely lawyer referral services, who refer you to another local law firm, of which you never selected and know nothing about. Know who you are calling as there are countless legal strategic benefits to hiring local, which often results in better case outcomes.

Many of these referral based law firms are “specialist” in marketing and at developing a referral attorney network. Since these marketing law firms are located far away, they often do not have intricate local knowledge or access to local network of resources necessary in building a successful injury case. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the local area, such as the local Massachusetts court system, local arbitrators, local mediators, local experts, local medical specialists, engineers and accident reconstructionists. We have excellent working relationships with insurance companies, adjusters and opposing counsel. Hiring local often brings advantages, with better and more thorough case development, better attorney-client relationship, which ultimately means higher verdicts and settlements.

When you hire a referral house non-local law firm, you often get the run around. If you call the arbitrarily “assigned” local firm to get an update on your case and get no response, clients typically then call the out-of-state referring law firm. You then run the risk of the referring law firm pointing the finger back to the local firm (that you never even chose)! When you are injured, have medical, financial and case concerns, the last thing you want to deal with is this merry go round of culpability! Don’t be caught in the middle. When you call us, you get us and will have your questions and concerns answered. Better yet, you can even stop by our law firm in-person to get updates from our lawyers and paralegals without jumping on a plane. You will not get the runaround at Ellis Law Offices LLP.
