Who is the Primary Attorney?
The primary attorney is the lawyer who actually does the majority of work on the case. Some firms will prominently display one attorney on their advertisements as the face of the firm. But when it comes time to actually do the work on the case, you are handed off to a less experienced attorney. Firms that do this will often claim you are getting the benefit of a team of lawyers and that the guy who is all over the ads will closely supervise the case. The reality is that your primary attorney is someone you were not thinking of when you decided to check out that firm.
