How many Mesothelioma cases do you have right now?

Should Ask Questions

Attorneys that have lots and lots of clients might have just one goal – get your case resolved as soon as possible so that they can move on to the next case. Look for an attorney with a reasonable (or even small) caseload.  By limiting the number of clients they take, these attorneys can devote substantially more time to your case, which in the end makes them a better attorney, and gives you a better chance of successfully working on your Mesothelioma case.
