When you meet with an attorney for any reason, you should ask questions that will help you determine if the attorney is right for you and able to meet your needs. Wrongful death claims can be particularly difficult to discuss, simply because you are likely in the midst of grieving the loss of your loved one.
If you are in this situation, you will need an experienced Wisconsin wrongful death attorney who is both sympathetic to your needs and able to present the strongest wrongful death claim possible on your behalf.
First, ask about an attorney’s experience. Has he or she handled many wrongful death claims? Has he or she filed wrongful death claims in situations similar to yours? After all, you may not want to hire a medical malpractice attorney if your loved one was killed in a car accident. How many years has he or she been practicing law? Does he focus his practice on wrongful death claims and related matters, or are wrongful death claims just one of the many different types of cases that he handles. You have the right to ask for references or client testimonials from the attorney so that you can get another person’s opinion of the attorney’s ability to represent your interests.
Next, you will want to ensure that your attorney has adequate time to spend on your case. You can ask about the types and number of cases that an attorney handles, whether the attorney is available on nights or weekends if those times are best for you, and whether you can communicate with the attorney via email or by phone. Will the attorney return your calls, or will you only be able to talk to the attorney’s assistant? How long will it take for the attorney to return your call or respond to your email?

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
