You get the point!
You can hire any attorney, but you should consider hiring a certified expert/specialist. These attorneys are dedicated and have demonstrated a high degree of knowledge and competence in the area of law that they are certified under.
Are All Attorneys Experts?
Only a small percentage of all attorneys are certified experts. Some attorneys falsely advertise that they are experts or specialize in a certain areas of law. This is unfortunate, because the client thinks that they are hiring a real expert with superior knowledge of the law, but they are not. In these cases, the very foundation of the attorney/client relationship is built on a lie. Don’t be a victim of their false claims.
In states that actually allow attorneys to advertise that they are experts or specialists, the attorney must apply to the State Bar and meet all of the strict requirements and take a test(s) in order to even be considered an expert/specialist. For example, in Nevada, only around 1% of all licensed attorneys have successfully been designated as experts/specialists.
In order for an attorney to be listed on this website, the attorney MUST be certified by the State Bar as an expert/specialist. This means that each attorney on this website has successfully passed all requirements of the State Bar to become one of the select few to be named as an expert/specialist.
A True Story
"I was contacted by a gentleman on a Nevada worker's compensation case. He said that his attorney (who is not an expert) told him that he no longer had a case and the attorney told him to leave his office. The client asked me to review his case. After my free initial consultation, I told the gentleman that he actually did have a case and I showed him where there was a Nevada Supreme Court case that supported his issue. With a lot of hard work and dedication, I was able to obtain a settlement for the gentleman for over $650,000.00."
