Are There Too Many Attorneys In The State Of Florida? What It Means For You

Florida’s legal industry is facing a crisis: There is a surplus of hundreds more new attorneys than there are law firm openings each and every year. Florida’s growth in this category has been steady, with more than 30% growth in the profession since 2000.

According to a survey by the Florida Bar Association last year, almost 50% of lawyers surveyed consider the overall number of attorneys to be “the most serious problem facing the legal profession” today.

More than 25% of lawyers have reduced their compensation as a result of this situation, but that’s not the only way that it impacts you, the legal consumer. In a saturated landscape with plenty of competition, it’s important to be savvy.

Don’t Let More Competition Obscure Your View Of What You Need In A Lawyer

How can you make sure you get the best attorneys around for your case?

Let’s look at some of the most important things that you can keep in mind while deciding:

Never Make A Decision On The Basis Of Advertising

The highly competitive legal landscape of today has seen to it that there are more hours of legal advertising on TV than ever before. Never make a decision about your lawyer on the basis of any ad, no matter where you see or hear it. Always do your own research.

Make Sure That You Can Discuss Your Case With A Senior Attorney

As in many “top heavy” industries, more and more work in the legal profession is being done by those who have only recently graduated from law school, or even by paralegals. Before you can decide on a law firm, make it clear you want to discuss your case with a partner.

Be Sure That You Fully Understand How Your Lawyer Will Be Paid

In a personal injury case, there could be thousands or even millions of dollars at stake if it becomes clear a serious injury was caused by the negligence of a third party. In this kind of situation, it is very rarely necessary for a client to pay any fees up front.

Always Compare Multiple Options Before Making A Decision

In the legal market, you have many different options. The first one that you see may not be the best one for you. However, it is definitely the case that you should make a decision as fast as you realistically can — within a few days of any injury or accident. This will give you the biggest advantage possible in pursuing your interests when you go to court. Delays can be costly.

The demand for legal services around the country is contracting, but that doesn’t mean you should have to worry about the quality of representation. Never settle for second best!

When It Comes To Florida Attorneys, Experience And Case Record Make The Difference

There may be more attorneys in the state of Florida than ever, but that means it’s more important than ever that you find attorneys who can provide you with the highest quality of service along with the best trial case record possible.
