Re: Disabled Police Officer Has Questions, Needs Help to Make Decisions
It may be your approach, how did they know you where a cop?
I had contacted three separate NH attorneys and never had any of them contact me back???? Is it me or my being a cop that lawyers don't like or is it because I have little chance???
How do they know if you stand a chance?
If you give to much info from the start they may pre- judge your case as not worth it based on the info you've provided.
You saved them the time of a free consultation.
When you first call an attorney, give basic info only - your contact info and the nature of your case (worker comp, personal injury, ect.)
Don't mention you're a cop or anything that could single you out for discrimination.
Don't go into details with the assistant who answers the phone, ask for an appointment to discuss the details of your case.
The key here is to keep them interested, keep them asking questions - make them schedule an appointment if they want to learn more.
Follow complwyr's advice, apply the principles I mentioned and you should have a positive result.
