Why Experience Matters?

Experienced Ohio disability attorneys tested through time

You may notice that law firms place a strong emphasis on their years of experience when talking to potential clients. Have you ever wondered why experience matters when hiring an attorney?

Real experience is one of the most powerful tools in a lawyer’s toolbox. Along with hard work and dedication, an in-depth knowledge of the law, the process, and how settlements and verdicts are reached can make or break a claim. Classroom and textbook learning can only take you so far. Sometimes, what it takes to win a particular case is the know-how that can only come with having handled similar cases before.

At Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, we understand the difference that our legal experience makes for our clients. Our lawyers have more than 150 years of combined experience, most of which they’ve gained right here in Northeastern Ohio. That’s not just a number. It translates into real results.

We know how to handle workers’ compensation, disability, and personal injury cases because we’ve been there before. Our understanding of the law, the process, the area, and whom we’re up against has prepared us to tackle any case that comes our way.

Knowing the Law

Workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability, and personal injury are evolving areas of the law. To be successful, a lawyer needs to know the statutes on the books, both at the state and federal level, as well as the decisions courts have reached over the years in similar cases. This knowledge will inform the way a lawyer approaches a case, from the kinds of witnesses he or she seeks out to the evidence requested from the other side.

The attorneys of Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA have been practicing together in the Mahoning Valley since 1985. Not only have our years of experience given us an in-depth knowledge of Ohio and federal law, but over the years, some of the cases we have handled have even shaped the way the courts have decided such cases.

Where less experienced lawyers might need to spend hours and hours familiarizing themselves with the particulars of a specific practice area, ours know the law and have been a part of it. As a result, we are well-prepared when approaching each case to seek out the relevant information and build an argument that plays to the requirements set out in the law.

Knowing the Process

Our Warren disability lawyers provide legal assistance for the injured in Warren, Ohio.

Filing a lawsuit is far from simple. The process involves hours upon hours of gathering information, completing paperwork, preparing statements, and more. However, attorneys who have been through the process countless times can handle many of these activities with greater accuracy and efficiency, allowing them to devote more of their time to building the substance of their client’s case.

The lawyers of Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA know precisely how lawsuits proceed in Northeastern Ohio. We’ve gone through each step countless times. Our support staff knows the process as well, with many having been with the firm for decades. Because of our experience, we don’t get hung up on procedural issues. That means we can focus on fighting for you.

Knowing the Area

In any lawsuit involving an injury, context matters. Some work sites can be especially hazardous. Some intersections are extraordinarily dangerous for drivers. Knowing the area where an injury or violation occurred helps to put it in context. With this information, a lawyer can already know from which angle to approach a case as soon as it starts.

At Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA, we know Northeastern Ohio. From Youngstown to Akron, from Warren to Salem, from Ravenna to Kent to Alliance and everywhere in between, we’re familiar with practically every corner of the region.

If you were injured on the job working in a local industry, it’s likely that we know the hazards involved that could have led to your accident. If you were injured in a car crash on a notoriously dangerous road, we might have even handled a case for a client in a similar situation. Our years of experience practicing in the Mahoning Valley have given us context for many of the cases that come our way before we’ve even started.

Knowing Whom We’re Up Against

From companies to local officials, the people involved in fighting or processing a lawsuit can act in predictable ways over the years. Experience dealing with the same people in similar cases can prepare a lawyer to tackle future cases from angles that have worked well in the past and to avoid those that have not worked well.

Heller, Maas, Moro & Magill Co., LPA has been an established part of the community in Northeastern Ohio for decades. We know the locals, and they know us. We’re familiar with many employers in the area, their practices, and the tactics they tend to use when challenged in or out of court. We have worked with the court officials who will run the proceedings in a case, as well as the agency officials involved in processing Social Security benefits. We even know other lawyers around the area whom we might be facing in court and how they approach cases. All this knowledge helps us more effectively fight for the compensation you deserve.
