A Guide on How to Find the Best Personal Injury Lawyer Tailored to Your Needs

When it comes to securing a favorable outcome in a personal injury case, the phrase "you get what you pay for" rings particularly true. You may find yourself asking, "How do I find the best personal injury lawyer?" But before you can answer that question, you need to define what "best" means in the context of your unique situation. Is it their win-loss record? Or perhaps their ability to resolve cases without the need for a time-consuming trial? In this post, we'll explore what factors contribute to identifying the best personal injury lawyer for your needs, and why van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim fit these criteria so well—especially for residents of Philadelphia and the greater Pennsylvania area.

Defining "Best"

The term "best" is subjective and largely dependent on what you specifically require from your legal representation. Do you need someone with deep experience in slip and fall accidents, or is your case centered around medical malpractice? Different lawyers excel in different sub-disciplines within the field of personal injury law.

While a legal degree is the baseline requirement, the attorney you choose should have additional qualifications that align with the complexities of your case. Look for someone who is a member of reputable legal associations, perhaps even someone who has received accolades from these organizations. But remember, while academic excellence is noteworthy, practical experience in Pennsylvania courts holds substantial weight as well.


With the complex maze of Pennsylvania's legal system, experience is invaluable. Ask potential attorneys about their experience with cases similar to yours. Additionally, inquire about their familiarity with Philadelphia's local ordinances and state laws. A lawyer who has a strong track record dealing with insurance companies, judges, and other lawyers in Philadelphia can provide you with a distinct advantage.

Client Testimonials

Another key factor in making your decision should be the experiences of past clients. Client reviews and testimonials give you an idea of how effectively the lawyer communicates, their ability to generate favorable outcomes, and their overall level of professionalism.
