A History of Excellent Service, Beginning with Our Founder

In 1981, Joel DuBoff hung out his shingle as the president and founder of DuBoff& Associates, Chartered. Bringing with him years of experience as a member of the U.S. Army Legal Unit and Assistant U.S. Attorney, as well as his education from the National Law Center of the George Washington University law school, he quickly earned an outstanding reputation as a trial attorney with an aggressive zeal for every one of his clients.

This dedication did not vanish at the courtroom door. Joel also earned a reputation as a lawyer who cares, showing exceptional compassion and understanding for his clients during every phase of the legal process.

Over the years, DuBoff & Associates, Chartered has grown in size and reputation. Our attorneys currently bring more than 50 years of combined experience in our main practice areas: personal injury and auto accidents. When we say that we will fight for you, we mean it. We have a reputation of fighting for our clients, taking the other side to court if necessary. But we don’t just fight for our clients; we fight well, and we fight hard. We are real trial lawyers.

But then above all, we have grown in our commitment to the original mission of our founder. We are the law firm that cares—and as a result, we have forged lifelong relationships with clients and the communities we serve.

Choosing the Best Personal Injury Lawyer

One of the most significant things you can do to support your personal injury case is to choose the right legal representation, and by hiring the very best attorney for the job you’ll be able to reap the benefits of the expertise and support that’s needed for more optimal outcomes.

There are always going to be many factors and considerations you’ll have to take into account when it comes to hiring your attorney, but the process of deciphering your best options is many times straightforward. There’s no denying how rigorous researching and interviewing can be when it comes to these types of hiring decisions, so we’ve provided the following factors to help you better understand if a certain lawyer is a perfect choice for your case.

We are more than confident in the capabilities of all our attorneys, and by going through this article we are confident you’ll be even more rest assured that we have what it takes to provide your case with the utmost, professional care that drives the most favorable results.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about how our firm can help you and your case. We know you’ll have plenty of questions after going through the following list of things to look for in your personal injury attorney, so we’re always available to talk and help you schedule a free consultation.

We fully understand how important your case is to you, so we advise you to consider the following factors/criteria when you’re looking for a personal injury attorney:

Hire an Attorney That Exclusively Focuses on Personal Injury Law

You’re undoubtedly going to come across some law firms and lawyers who try to do it all, so it’s important to hone in on an attorney who primarily focuses on specific areas of the law, in this case, personal injury law. The main reason for this is because personal injury law is very intricate and many times entails specialized practices and rules, so you’re never going to want to hire a ‘Jack of all trades, but Master of None’. When it comes down to it, you’ll always be risking the overall quality of your legal representation when you choose an attorney who isn’t a personal injury law expert.

Here at DuBoff & Associates, we specialize in serving injury and accident victims throughout Maryland, Virginia and the D.C. Metro Area. Some of our more popular practice areas include bicycle accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, product liability, medical malpractice and so much more within personal injury law!

Choose a Firm That Has A Successful Trial Track Record

There are countless lawyers out there who claim to exclusively deal with personal injury cases, but in reality, they’ve never been inside a courtroom. This is because they’ll take on your case and then put pressure on you to settle for a meager amount from insurance companies.

There’s no denying how aggressive insurance companies are, and they know which lawyers and firms are more than willing to take cases to trial, and which lawyers tend to settle quickly. This is sometimes an overlooked aspect of personal injury law, but it really is crucial to hire an attorney who has ample experience taking cases to trial because you’ll ultimately be putting your case at a huge disadvantage without this type of legal experience supporting you.

Select an Attorney with A Track Record of High Settlements and Verdicts

Personal injury cases always affect you and your family, and they’re so crucial because these types of cases are your opportunity to be rightfully compensated for all the damages a specific injury created. If you’re undergoing a serious injury, it’s imperative that you hire an attorney who you know can deliver a large settlement.

Not every case is worth $1 million and more, but you shouldn’t be afraid to ask prospective attorneys about their biggest cases and reach out for past client referrals. By going through an attorney’s past, you’ll get a much better indication as to their previous accomplishments and overall track record, which will help you decipher if the attorney can deliver the type of settlement or trial verdict you’re after.

Choose an Attorney with The Resources to Take Your Case Seriously

One of the many reasons why you should always choose a personal injury expert is because these types of cases will many times require rigorous investigations that are expensive to prepare and conduct. Countless personal injury cases will require attorneys to devote a lot of time solely to one case, and attorneys will many times need to have the resources available to hire all types of medical experts, economists, accident reconstructionists, rehabilitation specialists and life care planners to collaborate with on your behalf.

There are many instances in which properly preparing a personal injury case can exceed $100,000, so you’ll want to ensure that your attorney has the necessary financial resources to successfully prepare your case.


Select an Attorney Who Is Willing to Utilize A Contingency Fee for Your Case

A contingency fee essentially entails an agreement that you’ll not pay attorney fees unless you recover compensation for your case’s damages. You can be more rest assured in your attorney’s confidence and belief in your case when you hire someone who consents to work for a contingency fee.

Our Clients Are Our Family

We are dedicated to representing injury victims and fighting to recover the full compensation they deserve. If your injuries seemed relatively minor, you may not think that you need legal representation. Your injuries may not be visible on the surface. However, just because you cannot see them does not mean they are not there. Many times, the repercussions of an accident are felt but not seen.

It can be particularly difficult to determine the extent of your injuries after an auto accident. Those involved in minor collisions with little-to-no surface-level impacts can sustain just as many injuries as victims of major crashes—if not more. Many of these injuries take time to surface; what seemed like a minor fender bender can turn into a lifetime of issues and draining medical bills.

At DuBoff & Associates, Chartered, we have the experience that you need in order to recover the compensation that you deserve. If you have been injured in an auto accident due to someone else’s negligence, the law is on your side. The other side can and should be brought to justice by paying you for the injuries and other damages they caused you. We can build an aggressive case for you, preparing it for trial from the moment you say, “Go.” If we need to take a case to trial, our competitors know that we will, and they know that we will fight hard. As one of our clients, you become a part of our family, and we will fight for you with the very passion and compassion that our families instill in us.

We also have successfully recovered compensation for victims of other accidents that, although not as common, can be equally as life-changing as car and other auto accidents. We have seen victims of premises liability cases, such as slip and fall injuries and injuries sustained from improper premises security. We have fought for clients who have been up against corporate giants, such as in medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. We are not afraid to take on the cases that others shy away from.
