A: Yes, if you know what you are looking for. When hiring a civil litigation attorney you should ALWAYS ask about their success in the courtroom with jury verdicts. This is not because your case will absolutely go to trial, it may not, but insurance companies know the lawyers that will go the distance, and know what the lawyer's results are. An attorney should always be willing to point you to specific results that you can then verify. Most of these are publicly available, but in general, there is not one place where you can find them all. Many lawyers have results listed on their website and so you start there, but your inquiry should go deeper.
