Personal injury attorneys all share a common trait; they love to win. It’s the bottom line, but is winning the only thing? When you file a personal injury lawsuit, you’re going to be working closely with your lawyer on some very personal matters. You expect results, you expect someone who can communicate with you, who understands your issues, and wants to see you get your life back on track after the case is done. What kind of personal injury attorney can deliver for you?

Open Communicator

A personal injury lawyer should be available to discuss your case with you whenever it’s reasonable. They should be able to explain what’s going on in language you can easily understand – and shouldn’t talk down to you as if you don’t get it.


A good personal injury attorney will be busy as others will seek the services of a top lawyer. However, your attorney should show a commitment to seeing that you receive the best possible outcome and that your case is just as important to them as the rest of their case load.


You should expect your attorney to give you an honest assessment of your case, even if it isn’t exactly what you want to hear. They shouldn’t promise the moon and only deliver a few rocks.

Experience and Success

Any attorney can practice personal injury law. However, it takes time and effort to become one of the best. Attorneys who have successfully negotiated or litigated several cases may have a stronger hand when facing down deep pocket insurance companies or businesses.

A Local Touch

Judges and their opposing counsel will know about a lawyer with a winner’s reputation. That lawyer will also know the person on the bench and the team seated across from them.

In Huntsville, it’s important that your attorney be familiar with the court and how cases are decided and what presses the right button at the right time. Call us at the law firm of Martin & Helms, P.C. for a free consultation to discuss how we can deliver for you.
