Is it true that bigger is better when dealing with the insurance company? I believe that smarter is better. Solving your problem with an insurance company is not like selling a roll of paper towels - it takes a thorough knowledge of the law and how it applies to you. Of course, if it is necessary, I can associate with other attorneys and support staff to provide you with the best representation possible.
Insurance companies respect lawyers who know what they're doing, and have the experience to back it up. In addition, a lawyer who does this type of work only occasionally may not know everything you are entitled to.
If your lawyer has not tried at least 25 cases to verdict in front of a jury, that lawyer simply may not have the experience to deal with the various problems that arise in a courtroom. And even if your goal is to settle a case, do you want a lawyer who the other side's lawyers know is inexperienced in a courtroom? Is your lawyer helping you, or simply accumulating billable hours? Of course, I have the support staff and access to other legal talent to provide you the best representation possible.
