DAVID E. RAPOPORT: We believe that just like in any other type of personal injury and wrongful death case, what is in the interest of the airplane crash victims that they get represented by experienced trial lawyers with a track record of success in both trying and settling aviation cases. Unlike other areas of practice, there are not many aviation firms on the plaintiff side. It’s common for experienced lawyers to handle cases not only in their home states but also in other states.

DAVID E. RAPOPORT: They’re able to get admitted to practice for purposes of the case because of their specialized expertise. Finding the qualified aviation attorneys to handle a plane crash case is not an easy thing to do. In my opinion, the key to finding an aviation attorney to prosecute a plane crash case is finding an experienced trial lawyer who has a track record of success in both trying and settling aviation cases.
