FAQ

Hiring theRight Personal Injury Attorney

Hiring the right personal injury attorney to represent you is critical and can literally make or break your case.  When meeting with an attorney for the first  time, there are a lot of questions that need to be asked to decipher if an  attorney is a viable fit for your case, and for you personally.   The following are the top ten questions that should be discussed in your first  meeting with a personal injury lawyer:

1. How many years have you practiced law, specifically personal injury?

Your prospective personal injury attorney should not be a novice, but a trained,  seasoned professional. Younger attorneys, although they may be used to  perform some of the work on your case, should not be given full case‐ management authority until they have a little more experience under their belt.

2. Have you taken cases like mine to trial or settlement, and if  so, how many?

An experienced personal injury attorney will have taken several cases like yours  to trial and/or settlement. This answer is an indicator of the prospective  attorney’s skill and success rate.

3. How much of your practice focuses on personal injury cases like mine?

A personal injury attorney should focus a majority of his or her time on the  subject matter involved in your case.  While an attorney who practices  generally, like a family doctor practices generally, can be a very good attorney,  it is important the attorney is competent to represent you in your particular  matter.

4. Will you use other attorneys or paralegals on my case?

Other attorneys and paralegals are often used to perform important tasks, but  should play a limited role. It is important that you ask to meet them and use  your own personal judgment to evaluate them. Even though the subject matter  and law governing your case might be unfamiliar to you, you should not  discount your ability to size‐up potential legal staff.

5. What is your policy regarding returning my phone calls?

The most frequent complaint of clients is unreturned phone calls. Your attorney should have a 24‐hour turnaround on client phone calls, taking into  consideration unforeseeable  circumstances. It’s a good idea to have this policy  written into your retainer agreement with your attorney to ensure compliance.

6. Will you explain to me all of the court procedures, legal concepts, fee arrangements, billing practices, retainer agreements, and payments of costs?

These questions are often time‐consuming, but very important. Your attorney  should explain to you, in detail, all of the above matters thoroughly.

7. What is your method or strategy for handling cases like mine?

An experienced personal injury attorney should have a streamlined process for  “working‐up” cases like yours. The level of detail contained in the attorney’s  process will demonstrate his or her organization skills and familiarity with the  subject matter and law of your case.

8. What is the likelihood of a quick settlement or trial?

Beware of the attorney who promises a quick settlement or trial! However,  your attorney should be able to provide a well‐reasoned estimate of the time  necessary to reach disposition of your case.

9. Do I even have a case?  And if so, what do you think my chances are for  receiving a settlement?

An experienced attorney should be able to inform you if your case is worth  pursuing and/or if there exists a possibility of recovery. Sometimes people are  hurt, injured, or suffer injustice and there is no legal remedy. A good attorney  will provide you with his or her strategy for your case, explaining the steps they  will take and the likelihood of your success at trial or settlement.

10. Do you have a policy of professional liability insurance?

Like doctors, all attorneys, personal injury or otherwise, should maintain a  malpractice insurance policy in the event that mistakes occur on your case. A final note:  No attorney can guarantee a particular outcome.  Also, if your case presents a new area of law or a type of wrong doing that hasn’t been settled by the courts in the past, then it may be difficult to find an attorney  with unique specialization in the area.  One of the most important things to  look for in an attorney, besides competency to handle the matter, is whether  or not you believe you can work effectively with the lawyer.  The relationship,  and your “gut” feeling, will probably be an important part of the hiring process.

My Personal Journey as a Lawyer

My name is Mohamed Doli. I am a lawyer, practicing in the area of civil litigation,  more specifically personal injuries. My story is not intended to brag about  myself but rather a story of Canadian Immigrant success. I see myself as a  successful lawyer having started from ground zero without any form of  support from any source, institutional or otherwise.  I have succeeded because I believed in myself, and refused to accept others’  judgment on me. I believed in myself on two folds: firstly, I have had  confidence in my personal ability to be a capable a lawyer – sharp, tough and  competitive. Secondly, I have had confidence in my community’s ability to  support my practice, as long as, I met their expectation. To that end, I have  received an overwhelming support from my community – “the Somali  Community in Toronto” who are by and large the client base of my firm.

I was born in a remote town in the Northern part of Kenya near the border of  Somalia. My experience in Kenya has prepared me to navigate through the  challenges of the Canadian experience. As Somali in Kenya, discrimination and  exclusion was the order of the day at every societal level, in addition to horrible  atrocities meted out to Somali Kenyans as a collective punishment. As such, the  level of abuse and discrimination that I have survived while in Kenya is mind  boggling.  The Canadian version of discrimination and exclusion I have experienced was more covert and beneath the veil, in many instance.As such, I developed a “will power” that stubbornly ignored or walked over the few ignorant and  misguided individuals who otherwise were bent to abuse their institutional  power of this great nation – known as Canada by creating unwritten and  unauthorized exclusionary policies.  My journey to be a lawyer and a successful business man was not on a silver  plate. It was tough and rough which required a great deal of endurance, as well  as, a “thick skin”. For example, I remember meeting with one of my instructors  in law school, barely three days there.

I will forego to mention her name as she may not be accorded the right to  respond. She called me into her office, and told me on my face that she  believed I was not capable to complete the program in three years. She  recommended that I should switch to part‐time program which will take six  years. She was convinced that my undergrad academic performance was  irrelevant as law school was a “no go zone” for those who spoke English with  an immigrant “accent”. I was not enraged but rather I sympathized with her as  she was out of touch with the “Canadian reality”   I have had a taste of the “Canadian reality” the day I came to Canada on  December 6, 1989 at about 5 pm. I joined a very long line. I was tired. My eyes  were red from many nights of sleepless. I was afraid. Very scared indeed. I am  not sure of what I feared. Certainly the worries of the unknown and the fact  that my home, my history, my identity, everything I stood for was behind me at  many miles away and I was confronted with the beginning of a new reality full  of unknown. My afro‐hair was uncombed and unkept. I was young in my  twenties with high school Diploma.

A Canadian immigration officer atthe airportwas going by checking passports. She took my passport and looked at me. She asked, “why are your eyes red”. I  replied – “I did not sleep for many nights”. She asked me to follow her into a  room. She pointed to a sofa seat in the room – and said, if you do not mind  sleep here. This line is too long and will take many hours to finish. I will wake  you up later when I finish interviewing these potential claimants.   I thanked her and slept. She came back at 11:30 – woke me up – with a cup of  coffee and a donut in her hand and gave it to me. Many may see this as small  gesture of kindness. At that moment, nothing was more valuable to me than  the kindness of that immigration officer, whom I do not know her name to this  date. Equally important was the perception that was left in my psychic about  Canadians as people of compassion and kindness – and of course – we are a  people of compassion and kindness ‐ nothing has changed in my psychic since  that day.

Also, I know that everything is not a bed of roses – far from it. Hard work,  endurance and self confidence are the ticket to success in this country. I have  used the word self‐confidence in this piece repeatedly – and I so do  intentionally for without self confidence, you would easily buckle down to your  knees. While the Somali community was the back bone of my client base, many  from the same community have undermined my practice as they propagated the notion that a Somali lawyer was not good enough to deliver justice for them. In other words,they judged me based on my ethnicity and not my ability.   For those from my own community with a deceased mind – I say – take a deep  breath and shower your mind with fresh air. Besides, Canadian justice is not for  sale – and ability is not colour based but based on individual talent.  Any time I go to Court – specially Provincial Courts – dressed in suite with brief  case in hand – I am being asked by those in Courts or along the Court corridors –  “are you an interpreter?”. Even my fellow Somalis frequently ask me the same  question as others. People who ask me this question have no ill intention at all.  It is an innocent expression, nevertheless, it speaks on the expectation the  society has about members of the Somali Community.   Why would people think I am an interpreter and not a lawyer or detective  based on my Somaliness. I am sure people are not used to seeing Somali lawyers  in Court – and the question that I am asked, is asked on the basis of peoples’  experience. In another episode, I went to a mediation centre for one of my  cases. I went to the receptionist to ask her for my room – and she asked me  “where is your lawyer?”.

I did not take this to be personal – nonetheless, it speaks volumes about the  social status of my community as people outside the Canadian Professional  Institutions despite being in Canada for many years.  I am the only Somali lawyer in private practice in the Province of Ontario, and  also in Canada. There are nearly 200,000 Somalis in Canada. Why have Canadian  law schools failed to produce Somali lawyers? What has prevented Somalis to  study law and become lawyers in this great country? Same goes to Ontario  Medical Schools. I am not aware of any Somali medical doctor in Toronto or  Ontario for this matter. Why?

I have enjoyed practicing law, more so, in the Superior Court of Ontario. Our  Ontario Superior Court judges are remarkable men and women. Very  deferential and very knowledgeable, prudent and fairness oriented. I am very  proud to be an officer of this Court. Finally, I must acknowledge the contribution some members ofthe Somali Community has made to the growth and success of my lawfirm. Special thanks to Suad Aimad, Shukri Jama, Nakrumah, Batula Shiekh, Mohamed Dahir, Musa  Kulow, Brother Said, Hassan Karate. Many have tried to divide us into clans and  sub‐clans.

Many have tried to exploit this perceived differences based on our clan  difference, if any, which I expressly deny. I am proud to say that the entire  Somali clans have treated me as their own thus I am made to feel that I belong  to each clan and thus to all clans. My clients of Somali origin address me as a  brother – and yes from the bottom of my heart, I am your brother, each of you,  and a son of each of our clans.  The love and respect for my community has given me unmatched self‐esteem  for I have discovered the value of my community, and hence my identity as one  based on solid Somali‐Canadian. To be part of the Canadian mosaic is a  significant gift that make me feel that my children and I can be anything we so  desire to be. This is a rare value – and it is a Canadian value. Our youth must  seize this opportunity to be part of the Canadian success as mine which I term  to be a Canadian success and an Immigrant success.  Lastly and not the least, I am successful because I have refused to be defined  by any one. I am my own man – I am a Somali. I am a Canadian. I am an  immigrant. This is how I defined myself – thus I have placed my destiny in my  own hands.
