Top RW Lynch Member Attorney John F. Mifka

Top RW Lynch Member Attorney John MifkaOur new Top RW Lynch Member Attorney John F. Mifka has over 35 years of experience as a Personal Injury Trial Lawyer. He has an LL.M. in Trial Advocacy and is a National Board of Trial Advocacy Certified Attorney. 

John Mifka’s personal injury caseload focuses on motor vehicle, slip/trip and fall accidents as well as product liability, medical malpractice, construction accidents and wrongful death cases, predominantly venued in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

John has offices in Marlton, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is also licensed to practice law in Florida and the District of Columbia. 

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

John Mifka: From the moment I began practicing law, I started building up my practice the old fashioned way. I focused on in-person networking in all kinds of social environments. This included sports bars, community groups, country clubs etc. I still subscribe to that method of marketing to the extent that one’s busy practice affords the time to do it.

Since 2005, I’ve consistently supplemented my years of personal networking efforts with RW Lynch’s Marketing Program. The quantity and quality of calls received along with the timely personal service received from all staff assigned to my account are the reasons for my success with their program.

How does RW Lynch contribute to growing your business?

John Mifka: Calls from prospective personal injury clients come in consistently. Cases are signed up frequently enough compared to some other marketing services that I had tried before becoming a RW Lynch client.

I have come to clearly understand and experience that if you follow up with each potential client in a timely manner, you will unquestionably enhance the likelihood that your caseload will increase accordingly, while investing less time and effort than what’s required with other types of marketing.

What type of personal injury cases do you receive through the Injury HelpLine?

John Mifka: I’m pleased to say that I have received Injury HelpLine® calls from prospective clients in all the areas of personal injury that I handle. That includes the main areas of medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, fall down accidents and defective products. I also get workers compensation calls, but I refer those cases out to other attorneys.

The size of the cases I became involved in over the years with RW Lynch range from the smaller type case of $25,000-100,000$ to the larger size cases in excess of $1,000,000.

What is the most important benefit of the Program for your law firm?

John Mifka: In my experience, there quite simply isn’t another source that gives you access to prospective clients the way RW Lynch does. The exclusivity with regard to the geographical area and the call delivery system make it so easy for an attorney to build up his or her practice. I didn’t get nearly the amount of contacts or phone calls from prospective clients from other sources that I tried.

What are your recommendations for an Attorney who has just joined the Program?

Number one – respond to those calls in a timely manner. Be as accessible as possible, so that if the call comes in live, you’re available. At the very least, make someone from your office available to take those calls.

This is almost as important as my first recommendation: I would have a protocol in effect that provides follow-up calls in a timely manner. Same day preferred, and maybe even a second call that same day if called for, and even possibly the following day or two, depending on what is reasonably called for.

And, if you run into any glitches trying to reach a caller or prospective client, contact RW Lynch. Talk to your Account Executive. He or she will address it right away, if not within minutes, then within hours.

Lastly, make sure you stay in contact with past Injury HelpLine® clients and their friends and family. They can be a continuing source of practice growth for years to come.
