Top RW Lynch Member Attorney Ryan FisherRW Lynch Member Attorney Ryan Fisher has been a trial attorney for 19 years. He focuses his practice on plaintiff personal injury litigation. He is also one of the Partners at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, a Cleveland law firm specializing in auto defect, car and truck accidents, workplace injuries and medical malpractice cases in Ohio and Nationwide. Ryan was happy to answer a few questions about his personal injury practice for us.

How did you decide to become a personal injury lawyer?

Ryan Fisher: I got a job in law school as a law clerk for a firm that did only PI, Workers Compensation and Social Security disability appeals. All these areas of practice had the common theme of representing seriously injured people who were really being taken advantage of by insurance companies, state government or the federal government.

I learned very early that the most disadvantaged in our society are the ones who are also treated the most unfairly. Since learning that sad truth back in the 1980’s the degree to which these folks are taken advantage of has only worsened. Many of their rights are now also being stolen by the legislature under the guise of “tort reform.” For many of these folks we are the only voice that they have.

What has been the most fulfilling aspect of your career so far?

Ryan Fisher: Winning. Nothing is more satisfying than representing a person or family that is desperately in need of help. They may have been rebuked at every turn by the insurance company, defense attorneys and defense doctors, even to the point of being called liars. Winning such case at trial and having a grateful and appreciative client after a long-fought battle is absolutely the most satisfying part of this job.

How do you approach marketing and business development at your firm?

Ryan Fisher: RW Lynch has been an important part of our marketing campaign for years. We have a PR company on retainer that does our publicity, blogging and web site design and maintenance.

We do not do any direct marketing or TV advertising, so we depend to a large extent on RW Lynch to make the phone ring. They have been doing a great job at that for well over ten years for us.

Lawyer to lawyer marketing has also been a major part of our efforts. We also do some radio “infomercials” which have been successful as well.

How does RW Lynch contribute to growing your business?

Ryan Fisher: Before becoming involved with RW Lynch I interviewed about ten companies with various marketing schemes and strategies. RW Lynch was the only one who I felt was completely reputable, had experience and didn’t try to put the “hard sell” on me. Also, their TV ads were very dignified and I wasn’t at all embarrassed to be associated with those ads.

Consistently we get dozens of Injury HelpLine calls a month from prospective clients. While the results vary from month to month, rarely does a month go by without signing up at least one solid case. Many months we sign up multiple cases. Over the years I would estimate that I’ve received well over 10 six-figure cases from RW Lynch referrals.

Would you recommend the RW Lynch program to others and why?

Ryan Fisher: Yes. The RW Lynch Injury Helpline allows small and medium sized injury firms to compete in the marketplace without a seven-figure advertising budget.

Online the Injury Helpline comes up as a sponsored listing on almost every Google search for injury lawyers in my area. The company does a great job getting in touch with me. They connect me to injured people by phone, text and email 24/7 whenever a referral comes in. I think prospective clients like to talk to a lawyer immediately rather than waiting until the next business day.

Top RW Lynch Member Attorney Eric L. JensenRW Lynch Member Attorney Eric Jensen is is a trial lawyer focused on personal injury, automobile accidents, insurance claims, premises liability, and workers’ compensation. He is also a Partner at Graham & Jensen, LLC, a full service boutique law firm located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Eric graciously agreed to sit down with us and answer a few questions.

How did you decide to become a trial lawyer?

Eric Jensen: I never wanted to be a lawyer or a trial lawyer at all. I wanted to be a doctor when I was in school. Eventually, I got to law school and worked as a law clerk for a firm that did a lot of First Amendment work. They were in court quite a bit. They had some pretty wild and interesting cases.

I learned a lot while I was there, but maybe the most important lesson I learned was that I could have success going to court and trying cases. I did not know at the time that would lead me to become a trial lawyer for injury cases, but here I am.

What has been the most fulfilling aspect of your career so far?

Eric Jensen: It sounds trite, but I think most lawyers who work in this area are fulfilled by helping those who truly need it. We can lose sight of it at times, but it is important to keep in perspective that many clients come to us at a time of extreme crisis.

A major injury can send someone’s world into a tailspin. In some cases, we may be the only people in their corner to help them. If we fail them, it can have a profound effect on that their life and well being. That is a serious obligation, and we do not take it lightly. When we can help those people and their families, and “right” some of the “wrong”, it is gratifying.

How do you approach marketing and business development at your firm?

Eric Jensen: Fish don’t just jump in the boat, you have to cast a lot of lines. My partner and I have done many different things over the years, but there is no substitute for a multi-faceted approach with “active/direct” marketing and “passive/indirect” marketing.

Also, getting high quality results and having happy clients always helps. We do quite a bit of in person networking with doctors and other lawyers. Some of the lawyers do exactly what we do and others do not. We get plenty of referrals from other injury lawyers because they know we will prepare a case the way it should be prepared, work with the clients to set their expectations at each step of the process, and we will go try cases when appropriate and necessary.

We round out our marketing approach with call services like RW Lynch, because there are only so many hours in a day, month, and year that you will have available to network in person.

How does RW Lynch contribute to growing your business?

Eric Jensen: We have used RW Lynch for several years and it has helped us grow the business quite a bit. It has provided many cases for us over the years that have been home runs.

It has also provided a tremendous amount of potential client contacts. Keeping in touch with those contacts is sometimes more valuable than the cases themselves.

What are the keys to succeeding with the RW Lynch program?

Eric Jensen: The keys to success in the program are not complicated, but you have to work on them:

1. Answer your phone/return calls – sounds like a no brainer, right? Like I mentioned, fish don’t usually jump in the boat.

2. Be ready, willing, and able to take/refer out a variety of cases – I handle a few different types of injury cases, and if it’s an area I don’t handle I refer it out to other attorneys I know. That way you are providing value to the client and the referral partner, and receiving value once that case resolves.

3. Have patience and listen to the facts – time is a limited resource and sometimes we have the urge to make a quick judgment and pass on a case. I have taken more than one case where at first pass it sounded like a “sorry, you don’t have a case” situation, but after hearing all of the facts it turned out to be something I could help with.

Increase in truck accidents across nation's highways
New research suggests that older commercial truck drivers may be causing danger on the highways.
According to a recent CBS News article, the American trucking industry is struggling with a shortage of drivers. In an effort to compensate, many companies are recruiting retired truck drivers. Ten percent of commercial truck drivers are 65 years old, or older. According to CBS News correspondent Kris Van Cleave, the rules of the roads have not kept up with the times, raising the question:

Is more screening needed for commercial drivers?

  • In the summer of 2009, a semi driven by a 76-year-old rolled on top of three cars, killing ten people.
  • More recently, on Aug. 19 in Newark, New Jersey, a bus was T-boned by another N.J. Transit bus driven by a 70-year-old, killing two people.
  • A couple days later, on Aug. 25, a truck hauling stones driven by a 74-year-old slammed into traffic in a construction zone in Binghamton, New York, injuring ten people.

A CBS News analysis of crash data reveals that in just the last three years, 19 percent increase in accidents involving commercial truck and bus drivers in their 70s, 80s, and 90s. From 2013 to 2015, there were more than 6,636 truck and bus accidents involving elderly drivers in just 12 states.

“The industry is looking for truck drivers. There’s a shortage in truck drivers. So they’re not going to self-regulate. The only way that that could be done is on the federal level,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. James Loftis said.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration deputy administrator Daphne Jefferson acknowledged the increase in older commercial drivers. Her agency is currently studying the trend. She reported to CBS News, “We are not quite at the point yet where we are ready to say one way or another if there needs to be a change in driver rules for, say, drivers over 65.”

RW Lynch would like to congratulate the Legal Marketing Association on 30 years of excellence! Watch their video, A Brief History of Legal Marketing, below to learn the history of how the organization began and some of their major accomplishments.

For 30 years, the Legal Marketing Association has been the voice of legal marketing professionals and attorneys looking to develop their practices. LMA is a not-for-profit professional organization founded in 1985. The organization serves the needs and maintains the professional standards of the men and women involved in marketing, business development, client service and communications within the legal profession.

BalancingActBlogSan Ramon, CA (December 2014) – On December 12 and December 19, 2014, the Injury HelpLine® will be featured on an episode of The Balancing Act® at 7:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime to help educate viewers about the personal injury legal process and how to obtain legal counsel after one has been in an accident.

In the aftermath of an accident, the stress and anxiety that come with it can be overwhelming and even incapacitating at times. Anush Alexander, Vice President of Marketing at the Injury HelpLine® (and RW Lynch, parent company) along with Personal Injury Attorney Eric Jensen, spoke to The Balancing Act’s® host, Julie Moran, about what steps to take after an accident and the importance of seeking legal counsel to protect one’s interests.

While an initial settlement from an insurance company might be tempting, Ms. Alexander and Mr. Jensen will highlight, in this segment, why it may not be in the best interest of the injured person, their future, or their family’s future.

RW Lynch Injury HelpLineThroughout the year, RW Lynch receives letters from happy clients who want to share their experience with other firms that are searching for a reliable way to grow their practice.  This recent letter comes from a client in Los Angeles who has received consistent results from RW Lynch for over 5 years!  The calls he has received from the Injury HelpLine® provides a consistent stream of new business that has helped him grow his personal injury practice:

To Whom it May Concern:

I have been a customer of R. W. Lynch’s Injury Helpline® off and on for the past 5 years. The fees realized from the new cases generated by the Helpline have consistently paid for and exceeded our financial commitment to the advertising. Two of our contracts, both for single call areas, have resulted in six figure fees, including most recently a wrongful death case involving a 26 year old female survived by her elderly father.

While not every call results in a retained client, the HelpLine provides our firm with the knowledge and security of regular in-take calls, expanding our contact base, and the confidence, based on past experience, that we will receive high value cases.
