Sandoval Law Firm, PLLC is Fully Bilingual, English and Spanish Attorney and Staff.
At Sandoval Law Firm, PLLC, we are proud Texans with a Hispanic/Latino heritage. For over 17 years, I, Attorney Hector Sandoval have served English and Spanish speaking clients all over the country. Sandoval Law Firm, PLLC currently has cases all over the State of Texas and we firmly believe that a large part of our success is our ability to communicate with our clients in their own language. Why? Because relationships between attorney and clients are built on trust and confidence! If communications are lost in translation, you can never fully develop that trusting relationship.
The Role of Language On your Personal Injury Case
The facts of a personal injury case can be very complicated and difficult to explain and understand without having a thorough discussion about the incident and describing all the events with great detail. If your lawyer doesn’t take the time to understand how you were injured, if he can’t speak your language, how can you expect that your best interests are going to be protected? Getting a complete understanding of the incident and the goals you have for your case can be complicated if your lawyer doesn’t speak your language.
Many law firms invest in hiring bilingual secretaries and assistants to help them communicate with new clients but, very often, the lawyer still lacks the capability of speaking directly with the client, asking him/her important questions or, making sure that both the strengths and weaknesses of the case are known early.
Further, I have seen first-hand how important details can get lost when you are using an interpreter to communicate. Even in depositions, where an interpreter is provided to assist a client in answering the questions from the other side’s lawyer, I very often have to interrupt the deposition to make sure that what was actually said is taken down correctly on the record.
The point is, language matters and anyone that says differently is ignoring the truth.
Find a Lawyer That Speaks Your Language?
How likely would it be that an English only speaking client would choose to hire a firm that has a lawyer that only speaks Chinese, Japanese or Greek? It is very unlikely! Why? Because you cannot build the trust and confidence that you need from the firm or its lawyers.
Don’t settle for speaking with a firm about your personal injury case where you are going to be required to communicate with your lawyer through a legal assistant or secretary. You deserve better!
We’re Not Just A Hispanic Law Firm
More than 75% of the client’s that I have represented in my career have been English only speaking clients. I have handled thousands of cases against one of the oldest industries in the United States, the American railroad companies.
We speak English, we speak American, we speak Texan, we speak Spanish and, We get the job done!
