“Hiring a lawyer is so expensive!” 

“Lawyers drag out their cases for money!”

“Lawyers only want money; they don’t care about their clients!”

These are some of the most common myths people have about working with an attorney. One of the most common misconceptions is affordability. Involving a lawyer in an accident case is often considered an expensive affair; however, the truth is that Clark McGehee at Johnson and Ward in Atlanta only gets paid if he wins your case. Mr. McGehee only takes a percentage of the amount awarded by the court or if the case settles. He does not believe in charging an hourly fee or requiring a retainer from his clients. 

Lawyers don’t care about clients – another common myth! Clark McGehee has been helping families get the justice they deserve for over four decades, and each client and every case is equally important to him. Like David to Goliath, he prides himself on fighting for you when your opponent is large and the odds seem stacked against you.

Hiring a lawyer in the event of a minor injury is unnecessary – no matter the extent of the injuries, it is always good to get a lawyer’s perspective to get compensated and seek justice. Moreover, it is often difficult to gauge the extent of injuries right away, and it has been seen in the past that some injuries turn out to be more severe than expected; hence, it is always advisable to consult an experienced personal injury attorney. 

A lawyer will take most of my settlement – this is yet another common misconception people have! Clark McGehee at Johnson and Ward receives a fraction of the settlement you win, and he will ensure he and his team do all the heavy lifting to make a strong case.

Legal processes are too slow and drawn out – the conclusion of a case is not entirely decided by the lawyer working on your case. Several other factors play a part in the duration of a case; for instance, complexity, investigation, and severity, and if the case is in the trial phase, scheduling conflicts might prolong the case duration.

Hence, it is advisable to do thorough research before signing up with a law firm and research their expertise. Clark’s expertise, coupled with his personable, empathetic, and reassuring approach, is why he is regarded as a top lawyer in Atlanta and across the country.
