Finding the Right Lawyer to Fit Your Needs

Posted by Dev Sethi | Sep 16, 2022 | 0 Comments

When you or a loved one experiences a serious injury or must face an unthinkable tragedy that requires a personal injury attorney, the process can seem overwhelming, especially when you're already dealing with so much.  

Anyone who has been seriously injured in an accident or worse needs the help of a proven personal injury lawyer - an advocate, expert, and representative who can obtain the best possible results for their case and ensure they recover the damages they are owed. 

You deserve an experienced, proven team and need a caring, compassionate attorney to represent you during this difficult, stressful time. Selecting the right lawyer in this situation can be time-consuming, but selecting the right personal injury attorney makes all the difference. 

When finding the right fit for your personal injury representation, here's what to consider when hiring a lawyer.


It can be difficult to search for and sort through all the law firms to find the right lawyer for you. While many personal injury firms have impressive backgrounds and most will tell you “we can help” and “we have your back”, only choose a firm that actually lives this mantra and has made it the foundation of the firm.

Find a firm who is both a capable and compassionate advocate for you as they aggressively fight for your rights. One who will truly be beside you every step of the way, with your best interest in mind at all times. 

The lawyers at Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian are constantly doing everything we can to ensure you are always respected, that your case is resolved quickly, and that you recover the maximum amount of damages you are entitled to. We pride ourselves on legal excellence, having settled successfully 98% of the time, but we're most proud of how deeply we care about our clients. 


Finding a lawyer who will treat you like family and is a best fit for you personally is key. But as important is selecting one who is experienced, competent and knowledgeable in all areas of law. 

You deserve only the best representation during this difficult time, so ensure the firm you choose is highly qualified. There are many ways to tell if your representation really “walks the walk” when it comes to their results and their process.

  • Have they won numerous industry awards and accolades?
  • Do they have both the education and experience?
  • Do they have the skill and sensibilities to serve you effectively?
  • Are they a highly respected and well-connected member of the community?
  • Do they have a dedicated team of assistants, associates, paralegals, experts, and staff to support you?
  • Will they tirelessly and thoughtfully prepare every case as though it was going to trial?
  • What is their case selection process and will you be charged for the case evaluation?

When selecting a personal injury lawyer to represent you in a serious claim, you want to find one with as many victories, multi-million dollar settlements, and record-breaking jury verdicts for injured Arizonans and accident victims as possible. The team at AZ Injury Law is that firm.  

From the moment you retain our legal services, your financial recovery will be our priority and your rights will be our focus, and though we successfully settle 98% of the cases we handle, we will not hesitate to go to court and aggressively fight for you when necessary.


Not all accidents are the same. No two cases are alike. And every client deserves the time, team, and talent dedicated to their unique situation. If legal representation can help you or a loved one recover the damages you are entitled to due to someone else's negligence, you should always expect exceptional counsel, exemplary representation, and effective results.  

If your injury or accident was someone else's fault, will your firm fight for fair compensation? Do they have the expertise or exemplary track record suited for your specific case needs? Are they board-certified, accredited and highly-regarded in their field?  

Offering unparalleled legal assistance and unmatched empathy, AZ Injury Law have been recognized as one of Tucson's best personal injury lawyers for decades, earning many industry accolades, awards, and industry designations as experts in their fields.
