From the ground up: What do lawyers actually do to build a case?

Building Your Case

Any fan of LA Law knows that lawyers have plenty of meetings, make phone calls and take notes at the start of a case and, voila, 22 minutes of screen time later, the case is resolved.

If only it was that easy. The truth is that behind the scenes, lawyers build cases for their clients brick by brick, starting with who caused your injuries. We collect photos, videos and notes about the scene, obtain police records and conduct witness interviews. Did the weather have something to do with the incident? We get weather and traffic reports, too.

Once the investigation process is underway, we also collect medical, rehab records, photos, income tax records and accountant reports from before and after the incident, to help determine the value of your case.
