Law Offices of Francisco G. Medina Dec. 17, 2019

How long have you been practicing in the field of acci­dent and injury law? How much of your law practice is devoted to accident and injury law? Have you previously represented people with injuries similar to mine?  If so, please tell me about their cases. How much trial experience do you have? Do you have investigators and expert witnesses who will help in cases with my type of injury? Can you refer me to a physician who can provide treatment for my injuries? Can you help me with my property damage claim? Are you a member of the Houston Trial Lawyers Association? Are you a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association? Are you a member of the American Association for Justice? Are you AV Preeminent® rated by Martindale-Hubbell? Are you admitted to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court? Have you ever served as an assistant district attorney? If the insurance company doesn’t offer a fair settlement, are you willing to fight for what is fair and full compensation for my injuries­? Will you evaluate my case for me without cost or obligation? Will you handle my case on a percentage fee basis? If I can’t come to your office, will you come to my home or office? Will you discuss my case with me over the telephone? Will you personally handle my case or do your turn my file over to a junior attorney?
