While large law firms have traditionally been favored over small firms in past years, that paradigm is shifting; and shifting big time.
With advancements in technology, as well as law becoming more complex than ever before, small, niche law firms are now becoming highly sought after by clients who want personal service and expertise– the best of both worlds.
Here, we are going to share with you 5 advantages of hiring a small, boutique law firm vs. a large firm with hundreds of lawyers. You can have your cake and eat it, too. Find out how!
1. Emphasis on a Particular, Niche Area of Law
When it comes to getting results for clients, experience and expertise are essential. However, “experience” practicing law isn’t enough; your lawyer needs to be well-versed and concentrated on a specific aspect of the law.
At Link & Smith, PC we are 100% focused on personal injury cases. If you are looking for a bankruptcy or divorce attorney we are not the attorneys for you. However, if you, or someone you know has been injured in an accident and are looking for a personal injury attorney, we can provide you with unparalleled legal representation.
Note: It’s important that you do not associate “small and boutique” with smaller results. We’ve been able to generate several 6-, 7-, and even 8-figure settlements for our clients. You can learn more about our case results here.
2. Work Directly with the Owners of the Law Firm
At large law firms, you never know who is going to get assigned to your case. In addition, if your case isn’t likely to result in a large payday for the firm, you are likely going to get handed off to a junior-level associate.
Isn’t the goal of hiring a personal injury attorney to get the best representation you can? If your case is getting handed to a lawyer who graduated law school last year, how can that be the best thing for your case?
At our practice, your case will be handled directly by our firm’s founders: Mark Link and Houston Smith. You’ll get direct access to published authors (who are also highly respected speakers in their field) with over 40+ years of combined experience handling cases just like yours.
3. Small Firms Will Often Go to Court for You
Many large firms are simply looking to settle, but if need be, will not provide you with adequate representation in the court of law. While our goal is to settle your case outside of court, the lawyers at Link & Smith, PC will fight for you in court if the occasion arises.
4. Your Case is Always Important
Every fish is big in a small pond. Unlike large law firms that have billion dollar corporations on monthly retainer, we value each and every client that we meet.
Whether your case is big or small, you are a valued client that we treat with respect, dignity, and devote significant time to settling your case in an effective, efficient manner. When you work with our law firm, you are one of a select few, not one of 10,000.
5. No “Hourly Fees” or Upfront Charges
Many large law firms bill you for their time, even if it is just an initial consultation. At Link & Smith, PC you will not pay a dime for legal services rendered unless we win your case. We work on a contingency basis, meaning we only get paid when you get paid.
Using this model, we have every bit as much incentive as you do to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
