I am a General Practice attorney - I handle a wide variety of cases of all types. I am a firm believer that attorneys who specialize are not as effective as those who are general practitioners. The reason for this is simple - if an attorney specializes in one area of the law (personal injury or bankruptcy, for example) the pool of potential clients in his community is smaller. Only so many people will need his or her particular specialty. In response, the attorney must either charge more for his or her services in order to make a living or must process as many clients as he possibly can. Most choose to process more clients, meaning that the time and attention that they can give to each case is reduced. Your case becomes a rush to settle for whatever can be realized quickly - not necessarily the full amount you might receive in the event that the attorney can take his time. I keep my case load small, so that I can devote the attention that each case deserves.
A portion of my practice consists of assiting other attorneys in handling cases that are outside their normal area of expertise.
