Arash Homampour:

As a consumer, it’s very difficult for you to figure out who’s the right attorney that I should go to. And unfortunately, what we see is a lot of advertising by lawyers claiming to be the top 10 or the top 20, this, that, or the other, and what the consumer doesn’t know is many of those awards have been purchased. They’re not legitimate, real awards. Now there are many attorneys that are fantastic lawyers that get… They’re duly deserving in the awards that they get, and I’m not begrudging people that use those services to get the awards to market. I understand everyone wants to market, but for the consumer, it’s really important that you do your research and you don’t just look at that award and you look at what are the results? Is this attorney really getting top dollar in settlements? Is this attorney really trying cases? Do they really get in front of a courtroom, in front of a jury?

And the reason you need to know that is because attorneys like myself who actually try cases day in and day out, who get outlier verdicts, meaning numbers that many other attorneys never get. Attorneys like us, we get way more in settlements than attorneys that don’t try their cases. Why is that? Because the defense and the insurance company knows if there’s someone that’s going to take this case and get the best possible result, it’s a trial lawyer like me. And so when you’re looking for a lawyer and you need a specialist, someone who’s handling a very complicated, big injury, a big damage case, make sure you’re getting the right lawyer and make sure, because that lawyer or that law firm is going to help you hopefully get a recovery that is going to last you for the rest of your life or compensate you for the harm that you suffered. And so it’s just really important. Always do your research.
