10 Benefits of Hiring a Small Law Firm

Posted Sep 16, 2021 by Matt Boulton

Indiana’s personal injury laws can make you feel lost as you begin the legal process. When it comes to legal representation, people will sometimes consider the services of a larger law firm. However, an accident case requires personal interaction and a level of devotion that a boutique firm such as Boulton Law Group can offer. 

Before you hire a large law firm to handle your case, consider the following benefits of hiring a small law firm to work on your case. 

1. Dedicated attorneys

Even though you may think that the volume of attorneys in a bigger law firm is an advantage, when you need an accident attorney, that is not always an advantage. In some larger law firms, a case may be passed around to different attorneys at different stages. At Boulton Law Group, Matt will be dedicated to your case. This helps to ensure he has a full grasp of the case and will work on it with precision. 

2. Better relationships

Choosing a law firm is a vital decision since you’ll be choosing someone to protect your interests. Working with a smaller firm means you’ll deal with an attorney who will know you the same way they know your case. You can be confident that Matt will likely have handled a similar case in the past. Therefore, he can use his experience to bolster your case.

3. More time to focus on your case

Larger firms may have more lawyers but they may also be bogged down by the high volume. Therefore, they might have less time to spend on one case due to their busy schedule. Lawyers in bigger firms also may not provide one-on-one interaction with their clients. With a smaller firm, you enjoy a unique relationship. Furthermore, small law firms have time to strategize and fight for each case.

4. You are given priority

One thing about big law firms is that they have to take care of hundreds of clients at the same time. Therefore, your case is not the only one they handle. That is not the case with a small firm. A small firm selects cases based on their unique details. So, if a small firm chooses to represent you, they’ll be committed to your success.

5. Personalized treatment

You should always expect a complete focus on your case. A lawyer from a small firm is able to take the time to have a deep understanding of your case. You’ll also receive professional and attentive treatment. Small firm attorneys can give you one-on-one attention since they treat every client as a big fish. The lawyers know the clients by name.

6. Ease of communication

A big law firm has the potential for a breakdown in communication which can lead to misunderstandings. Such misunderstanding is less likely to happen in a small firm since it’s clear who you should be talking to about your case. 

7. Flexibility

A big firm may not be available to handle your case after hours. Smaller law firms are flexible since they only handle select clients. They will also be willing to work according to your schedule. 

8. No upfront charges

Boulton Law Group only requires payment for legal services once the case is won. It is not uncommon for small firms to work on a contingency basis. With the contingency model, we have an incentive to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. 

9. Your case is always important

Whether you have a big or small case, we treat you with dignity, respect and devote time to your case. You’ll be one of the select few in the small law firm and not one of the thousands. 

10. You work directly with the owner of the firm

Anyone can get assigned to your case in a large law firm. Your case may also be handled by a junior-level associate. That is not the case with smaller firms. The goal of hiring a personal injury lawyer is to get top-level representation. If your case is handled by a lawyer who has graduated recently, your case may not have the experience it deserves.

At Boulton Law Group, we treat every client’s case with the attention it deserves. Matt prides himself on a strong work ethic and local relationships. For more information on how we can be of help in your case, get in touch with us today.
