Hiring the Right Attorney for Your Case in Florida

Hiring An Attorney For Your Case In Florida - Hiring the Right Attorney for Your Case in Florida

There is logic to hiring an attorney. You want someone with the legal expertise and experience to fight for your right to compensation and justice. They also need to be sensitive to your experiences and understand how much trust you place in them.   

Florida has interesting laws, including the ones that forbid you to sing in a swimsuit on the beach or park your vehicle at an intersection. Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne, P.A. will defend you vigorously if you do choose to sing at the beach, even though we are more focused on personal injury law for, amongst others, auto accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and defective products. 

We offer contingent fee contracts and will charge no fees or costs unless we win your case. The initial consultation with our lawyers is free, and anything we discuss is deemed confidential. We share what you need to consider when choosing a lawyer for your case in Florida.

Consulting a Local Attorney for Florida Cases

Having a local attorney is crucial, as they know local and state laws and are aware of unwritten rules that could impact a case. The Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne team is very familiar with Florida cases as we practice law in South Florida. We have been devoted to protecting and seeking justice for Florida families for over forty years. Our legal success stories include:

Why Choosing the Right Attorney Matters

We rely on word-of-mouth referrals from past clients as choosing the right attorney matters.

The Role of Experience in Attorney Selection

Experience matters in attorney selection. Richard K. Slinkman, Esq. of Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne, is not only knowledgeable about personal injury law, he is experienced in commercial law and was admitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit more than twenty-five years ago. His experience and knowledge benefit all the firm’s clients. 

An experienced attorney will have a legal workstyle that adapts to the nature of each case. They will be patient in negotiations for an insurance company settlement but fight with determination for clients in a court case.  

Navigating Attorney Contracts in Florida

It is always best to have a written representation agreement with your attorney. Contingency fee cases like those offered by Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne must be in writing under American Bar Association (ABA) rules. A written agreement holds everyone accountable and should clearly state a client’s legal issue, the nature of the attorney’s legal representation, the hourly rate or fixed fee, and any additional costs or fees.  

Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification on issues you are concerned about when navigating your attorney contract, especially regarding fees. You should be comfortable enough with your preferred lawyer to be clear about your expectations and have them included in the contract.
