- How many nursing home abuse, neglect, injury or wrongful death cases have the attorney tried to verdict?
- Is the attorney willing to have the incident investigated within five days of being retained, and will the attorney advance the funds to hire a private investigator or other necessary experts?
- If the attorney is unavailable when you call, who will answer your questions?
- Does the attorney work with a registered nurse?
- Does the attorney have the highest rating (AV rating) from Martindale-Hubbell, which rates lawyers nationally?
