Consider a brain injury attorney if you are searching for legal assistance after you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury or coma.  The process of choosing an attorney at such time  can seem very complicated.  It may feel simpler to go with someone the family knows or with someone famous who you see on TV.

Yet, hiring the wrong lawyer in these desperate hours can have devastating impacts now and for you or your loved one’s future.

You realize that an attorney’s education, their experience, their knowledge, and their trustworthiness are characteristics you need to explore. In addition to those characteristics, we suggest that you choose a brain injury attorney because such a lawyer not only understands brain injury, but also has the time and dedication needed to work on your case. Lawyers who specialize to the level of being a brain injury attorney, are only working on big cases and thus have the time to treat your case like it is the big case that it is.

Brain injury cases take a long time to resolve.  You will be in contact with your lawyer’s office many times.  If you hire a brain injury attorney, your lawyers will understand not just the legal issues in your case, but the issues of a brain injury.

Make sure that the attorney’s paralegal or legal assistant is understanding and takes the time to listen to your concerns.  Speak to them.

Do they make you feel comfortable?  Do they speak respectfully and at a comfortable pace for you?  Do they make you feel they will be available for you to ask questions?

How easy is it to reach them by phone?  Do you need to leave endless messages or do they call you back quickly?  How long will it take for you to speak with your attorney when you call?  Does the attorney have the time to give your case adequate time and resources?

At the Brain Injury Law Group, S.C., we have one brain injury attorney: Me. We take individualized time with each client.  We limit the number of cases we take on so that we are able to serve each client with the time and attention they deserve.

Brain Injury Attorney paralegals know more.

Nothing is more important in your case than the paralegal who is your constant contact person. Jayne Zabrowski knows brain injury and cares.

When you call our office, you will speak directly to Jayne Zabrowski.  Jayne will always treat you with kindness and respect.  She will pay close attention to the details and ask you many questions.  You will understand not only how much she knows about brain injury, but you will first realize how much she cares.  We treat our office staff with respect and provide them with education and knowledge, so they in turn are able to provide you with exceptional service.

This sentiment was expressed by a client in a letter to our office:

“ Jayne genuinely and skillfully expresses kindness, patience, respect, and empathy.  Through her sensitivity and understand, she has provided me with a listening ear, words of encouragement and often times emails of inspirational stories.   On many occasions, it has been Jayne’s caring nature that has given me the strength to continue on during very difficult times.”

Jayne just is different.  It will only take one phone call to know that.  She has dedicated herself to learning about brain injury as much as I have. What’s more, she listens and believes you when you tell her about your life now.

You are not “just a case” in our office.  We treat each case individually and give you our full dedication.

We promise to be accessible and available to you.   If you would like an experienced, caring, honest, knowledgeable, trustworthy brain injury attorney,  call Brain Injury Law Group, S.C. at  1-800-992-9447.
