Legal representation is much more accessible to those living near large urban centers. However, I believe that smaller communities should have access to the best attorneys possible. It’s often the case that small towns have a limited pool of lawyers to choose from.
If you’re from a small town or suburb, you might work with your family’s lawyer to help with a will, traffic ticket, or minor real estate issue. Those lawyers who do practice in rural communities may take a generalist’s approach to their law practice—they do it all. While this is perfectly fine in some circumstances, you’ll want a more specialized attorney if you’ve been hurt at work or involved in a vehicular accident.
What is effective legal representation?
Effective legal representation is needed, for instance, with Injury laws and workers’ compensation laws. These are highly specialized areas of the law. As a result, someone who has a general practice may not know the complex laws and regulations that come into play. In addition, laws in these areas can change drastically over time. Choosing an attorney with extensive knowledge of these specialized areas of law and legal precedents is an integral part of the process to maximize your compensation.
I have a background working exclusively in personal injury and workers’ compensation. I’ve even represented a nationwide insurance carrier on the other side of these cases. So I can anticipate the tricks that insurance companies will try to pull. I know how to deal with them. And I can make sure you recover what you are owed in your case.
I love spending time in communities around St. Louis, where access to legal representation is a bit harder to come by. And working with folks to help them get what they need to recover and get their lives back. Whether you live in the City, County, or surrounding rural communities, you deserve expert legal representation.
