Should I hire my “Uncle Bob’s” divorce lawyer to handle my serious personal injury case?

Just because you know the name of a lawyer, doesn’t mean that is the lawyer you should hire. Would you hire a pediatrician to perform brain surgery? Chances are that you wouldn’t. So, should you hire a lawyer who spends most of his or her time handling divorces or DUI cases to handle your wrongful death or catastrophic accident case? Of course not.
