How To Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer

HOW TO CHOOSE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

BEFORE HIRING AN ATTORNEY, ASK THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:

 

  • Are you a Certified Injury Law Specialist (certified by the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization)?
    Our Answer: Mark Rassas was one of the first State and Nationally certified trial lawyers in Tennessee.

 

  • How many years have you been practicing in Clarksville?
    Our Answer: Since 1976. Our law firm was established in Clarksville in 1947.

 

  • What is your personal experience in actually trying cases to a jury in Clarksville?
    Our Answer: In order to be certified and re-certified as a specialist, we are required to submit proof that we actually try a significant number of jury cases. Insurance companies know this and they also know which lawyers have little or no trial experience.

 

  • Will the attorney handle my case and return my calls or will my case be passed to a secretary called a “case manager”?
    Our Answer: We don’t employ “case managers”. When you hire a lawyer, you get a lawyer.

 

  • Will I be able to see an attorney at any time or will I first be screened or be required to deal with a secretary called a “case manager”?
    Our Answer: We have a staff of experienced paralegals and legal professionals, but you can ALWAYS see your lawyer.

 

  • Is your firm “A” rated by Martindale-Hubbell?
    Our Answer: Yes.

 

  • Does the attorney, who is responsible for my case, live in Clarksville or merely commute from another county?Our Answer: Mark Rassas is a life-long resident of Clarksville. His father, Waldo Rassas, maintained an active Clarksville law practice for over 50 years. His father-in-law, Ted Crozier, Sr., was Clarksville’s mayor. His family lives here. His home phone number is published in the Clarksville directory.
