How to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

Hiring a personal injury attorney begins with gathering knowledge. It ends with signing a service agreement after a successful consultation. In case you are wondering, the definition of a consult is "a meeting with an expert or professional in order to seek advice." The experienced and highly capable personal injury attorneys at Johnson Law have created a basic guide for how to be best prepared for your consultation. We never want you left wondering "What should I be doing?". You can find more information on specific personal injury topics by looking over our services page or reading our blog posts.

STEP 0: Just Call Us

No work is needed before you call us (971-205-3266), and our personal injury consultations are free. A legal assistant will help walk you through the process and answer any questions we can. If we can’t help you we will point you in the right direction. We will immediately connect you with an attorney for a phone consultation. Alternatively, we can do in-person and Zoom consultations. If no attorneys are available we will work with you to schedule a consultation as soon as possible.

However, if you want to be well informed and prepared, keep on reading.

STEP 1: Prepare

Help yourself by having the following available when you call:

  1. Pen and paper
  2. Incident details
  3. Injury and treatment details
  4. Names of companies and/or individuals involved
  5. Your contact information

STEP 2: Contact Us

During normal business hours (M-F 9:00 - 17:00 PST) call us: (971)-205-3266

After normal business hours use our contact form (located at the bottom of this page) or call and leave a voicemail. We will get back to you the next business day.

STEP 3: Be Heard

Currently, we are initially conducting phone consultations to reduce the risk to our staff and clients. If possible you will immediately be connected with a lawyer, and if none are available we will schedule a time that works for you. Once connected with an attorney you can tell your story. Our experienced lawyers will walk you through the process and answer any questions you have. If we are unable to take on your case we will refer to an attorney who can.


STEP 4: Choose A Location

After a successful phone consult, we will schedule a time for you to come in, meet us, and review the necessary paperwork. We believe it is important to meet clients in-person to build a quality working relationship. You can see maps of where we have our offices located (Hillsboro, Portland, and Vancouver) near the bottom of this page. Select the one best for you. If you will need any particular accommodations please let us know.

STEP 5: Retain

As part of the in-person meeting we will go over the legal services agreement. Then when ready both attorney and client will sign the agreement. This is the point at which we will officially transition from being an attorney to YOUR attorney. You now have leveled the playing field and have someone fighting for you. Congratulations on your future success.
