Benefits of Choosing a Bilingual Law Firm
No translation errors

Therefore, you want someone that will understand everything you’re saying from the very beginning to have a smooth process.
In addition, there will be no trouble with testimonies and a need to have a translator. Hiring a bilingual firm guarantees that there is no wrong translation, especially when it deals with the importance of being able to tell the plaintiff’s story correctly. Even if you are an English speaker, if there is a witness that happens to only speak Spanish, you will have someone on your side that will be able to communicate effectively with that individual.
Although you could pay for an interpreter, language is a funny thing. There are a lot of nuances in language, especially in the Spanish language. Here at The Carlson Law Firm, we have attorneys that are fluent and native Spanish-speaking attorneys that will be able to distinguish the context of what you’re trying to say and will be able to represent your story the way that you are wanting it to be told.
In addition, our bilingual attorney can help with important documents, such as medical documents, thank you letters, etc. The ability to translate and overall experience here at The Carlson Law Firm will be easier when you have someone speaking the language you are most comfortable in.
