When you or a loved one have been injured in an accident and you need someone to protect and secure your rights, are you going to choose the personal injury lawyer who appears in television commercials or the one who appears in court and has a record of proven results.

Consider this: When you call a law firm that you see on television, are you going to be represented by the lawyer who made all those promises in the commercial, or will you get passed off to an associate who may or may not have any experience with your type of case?
