How to Hire a Wrongful Death Attorney in New Jersey
Proudly serving all of New Jersey
One of the last things any family usually considers after a member passes away is if they should hire a wrongful death attorney. Unfortunately grieving families are often taken advantage of by unscrupulous insurance providers, other attorneys and companies who wish to absolve themselves of any wrongdoing. If your loved one died and you believe their death could have been prevented you should contact an attorney at our firm at (609) 240-0040 for a free consultation.
You should contact an attorney, or several, to get a feel for what sort of legal rights you can pursue following the death of a loved one. All wrongful death lawyers in New Jersey should provide you with some sort of guidance at the very least. Here at Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. we provide free legal advice and a case evaluation which not many other law firms do. Our attorneys have years of experience handling wrongful death cases throughout New Jersey from our office in Princeton.
While contacting lawyers you should be aware of several things that can help you make a reasoned decision. Your wrongful death lawyers should be courteous and professional when speaking with you and should always be able to be reached. The staff at the law office should equally be helpful in directing your concerns and questions. The lawyers who work for the firm should have significant wrongful death experience, especially in New Jersey's complex legal system, and should outline everything that occurs during a wrongful death case and all potential outcomes.
The law firm you hire should have significant case histories that you can learn about in general and should have a fairly good success rate. Some law firms will refuse to divulge any information about past successes. You should always hire a firm that is absolutely upfront with you about your case and their experience in handling similar cases. In New Jersey there are several specific laws surrounding wrongful death lawsuits and your attorney should be experienced in dealing with their particular nuances. They should also be up to date with any new or pending legislation that may affect your case.
In addition, your potential law firm should be entirely upfront about the fees that you will pay them to represent you and your family. Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. work most New Jersey wrongful death cases on a contingent fee basis only. A contingent fee is a preset percentage of a successfully won case. These fees allow people to hire us immediately and mean that we take cases we truly believe in. If we are unsuccessful in winning your case for you then we are not paid these contingent fees at all.
Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. have years of experience handling cases throughout New Jersey from our Princeton office.

We are open about all possible outcomes of each and every case that we handle.
