Our Firm: Pocrass & De Los Reyes LLP

We believe that obtaining justice for you is an important part of your recovery and helps you move forward with your life.

Resources to Fund Your Case
At Pocrass & De Los Reyes we work on a contingency basis. This means you pay us nothing until your case is resolved. It also means that our compensation is tied to the compensation we recover for you.
A lawsuit must be prepared with the expectation that it is going to go to trial. Court costs, investigation, trial materials, and the cost of experts to testify on your behalf make a lawsuit very expensive. It is critical that your accident attorney have the financial resources to fund your case. Our ongoing achievements in court and in settlement conferences provide us with the necessary resources to represent you fully and effectively.
Many of our cases come to us through referrals from other attorneys who may not have the resources or legal practice background to assist their client.
We are honored by the trust these attorneys place in us. As required by State Bar Rule 2-200 and other rules of professional conduct, Pocrass & De Los Reyes pay referral fees to attorneys who send us their clients. However, these fees never come out of the client’s compensation.

How To Select An Accident Attorney
When most people realize they need an accident attorney they are frequently exhausted from recovering from their injuries and attempting to reclaim their lives. Finding the right attorney can be an overwhelming task. But the attorney you choose will directly affect the results you get.
Below is a checklist of items that can help you select the best accident attorney for you:
- Does the attorney have experience in your type of case?
Just as you would not go to an eye doctor for a heart transplant, you want an attorney who has extensive experience in your type of case.
- Is the attorney a trial lawyer and experienced in the court room?
Check the attorney’s verdicts and settlements on his website. Does he have significant verdicts? Though there are many good reasons to settle a case, you want an attorney who is not afraid to take your case to court if necessary.
- Check the attorney’s bio on his website.
Look for honors he has earned and at the professional organizations in which he is involved.
- Check the attorney’s discipline record on the State Bar of California website.
- Ask who will actually be handling your case.
In some offices your case could be given to a young attorney with little experience. You want to make sure that the attorney you are talking with is the attorney who is going to be actively managing your case.
- When you first contacted the attorney, did he get back to you promptly?
- How comfortable are you with the attorney when you met with him?
You want an attorney who listens to you and is willing to answer your questions in a way that you understand. You should not feel rushed or confused.
- Are you comfortable with the office staff?
In addition to the attorney, you will be working with his staff. They should be courteous and helpful.
