What Differently Sized Law Firms Can Offer You

Spencer Law Group May 26, 2022

If you have been involved in an accident or personal injury, you might assume that hiring a large law firm is the best idea.  Large law firms are certainly spending multi-millions of dollars in advertising to make you believe this.  But is hiring a large law firm really the best choice?

Large law firms may seem enticing with their mega-budget advertising schemes and outsized claims of recovery.  But one thing to keep in mind is:  If your injury occurred locally, how does having thousands of lawyers and offices around the country, sometimes even the world, actually help you?  The answer is, it does not.

Injury claims are handled and litigated according to local rules.  A huge law firm with offices in every state serves no benefit to an individual who is injured in Kentucky.  A large number of lawyers, even in a regional office, generally means less personal attention to each individual client.  A large number of lawyers means a large number of assistants, who generally act as gatekeepers in preventing you from directly interacting with your lawyer.  Slow communication in this setting is an understatement.

In fact, large law firms move more slowly in many different ways because decisions tend to require approval from multiple higher-ranking managers. The simple task of implementing new technology to help work progress may itself be a major ordeal.   

By contrast, small law firms may offer you a more personalized feel but often lack the resources to effectively handle your claim.  Small law firms have fewer support staff to give your case the attention it needs.  A small firm’s overwhelmed lawyers are often hard-pressed for time – time that is required for a thorough review of the issues and careful scrutiny of your claim.     

At Spencer Law Group, we strike a balance between these as the high-performing medium-sized law firm we are.  As a firm that has operated in Lexington, Kentucky for over 30 years, we have every resource at our disposal to deliver excellent results.  Our attorneys are knowledgeable in every facet of personal injury law in Kentucky, from car wrecks to medical negligence, premises liability (slip and fall) to workers compensation and Social Security disability law.  We are small enough to give you the personal attention you deserve but large enough to have experienced attorneys with widespread expertise.  There is truly no issue that we cannot handle – from hiring the expert your case requires to having the knowledgeable support staff needed to quickly resolve your claim.  At Spencer Law Group, our clients have an open line of communication to their individual lawyer.  Our lawyers work directly with you to determine the specifics of your claim and how best to meet your needs.
