Personal Injury and Accident Lawyers in Portland, OR
Why should you hire Oregon Auto Accident Attorney Craig Hopkins?
The focus of my practice is helping people who have been personally injured and the families of those who have been killed because of someone else’s negligence. If you are injured, you should consult with an attorney right away to learn about your rights. I have helped many people obtain payment for their injuries, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
What sets me apart is not what I do, but how I do it. As a sole practitioner, I have the flexibility to choose my cases and spend the time to get to know my clients. Finding the right solution to a legal dilemma should be a collaborative effort. Often, there may be more than one way to resolve an issue. Each client’s personal needs and concerns are taken into account in formulating a plan of action. I never take an assembly-line approach to my clients’ personal injury and auto-accident claims.
“Craig is amazing! He answers my questions and comes up with realistic solutions quickly. He isn’t a stuffy lawyer. He is down to earth and honest, but ready for a fight. A 5 star lawyer….” – Cheryl
Why I do what I do
I take pride in “fighting for the little guy.” I take cases I believe in for people I care about. Each case that I select is handled with extreme care and given the amount of time it needs and deserves.
I am genuinely interested in the welfare of my clients. I always try to do more than merely obtain a successful result in a particular case. I am certainly proud of the results I get and the speed with which I get them.
However, I am just as proud of the fact that I return all phone calls immediately and solve every problem I can, whether it is directly related to the case or not. I’ve maintained friendships with many of my clients long after I’ve won or settled their cases. My relationships with them are just as rewarding as my professional accomplishments on their behalf.
Hire an experienced attorney to fight for you
I have achieved outstanding results for many people in Portland. Although personal injury cases do vary, a short consultation with an experienced attorney will determine if you have a case. It is important to do this as soon as possible after an accident, so that evidence can be preserved and witnesses interviewed before memory of the incident can fade. Even if you do not have a case, I will take the time needed to evaluate your circumstances at no cost to you.
If you have been seriously injured in Portland, it is important to consult with an attorney (even if you don’t end up hiring one) before talking to the insurance company of the person who caused the injury. There are many potential traps and pitfalls when dealing directly with an insurance adjuster. Injury victims often end up giving a recorded statement, agreeing to be examined by a company doctor, or signing a release for something that they did not fully understand. As the saying goes, “It’s better to be safe than sorry”.
NO VICTORY = NO ATTORNEY’S FEE
In addition to providing a free initial consultation, you are not charged any attorney fee until I actually win or settle your personal injury case. In short, it costs nothing to consult with a personal injury attorney Portland, OR.
