Should I Work With a Big or Small Law Firm?

It’s a common misconception that bigger is better. Sometimes people think that if the firm is so large they must attract the best talent, right? That’s not necessarily true. There are exceptional attorneys across the country, at both small and large firms alike. But there are some things that set small firms apart from the rest.

Personal Experience

When looking at different attorneys and law offices to reach out to, ask them if you’ll be working with the same people for the duration of your case. At Loscalzo & Loscalzo, appreciate the fact that we’re able to get to know our clients on a personal level and have that one-on-one time with them.

If you choose to work with a larger firm, it can be common for your case to pass hands within the firm. This means you may not always be working with the same attorney and you might be meeting with a different lawyer every time you call with a question or when you show up to court about your case.

Location, Location, Location

When choosing a firm to work with, consider if they are familiar with your geographic location. Will the firm you choose truly understand the laws and rules associated with where you live? Do they know the laws in and out, front and back, and know how to best defend you in a court of law in your city or state?

We believe choosing a local firm like Loscalzo & Loscalzo will help your case. Our firm has been working cases in Manhattan for over 100 years. We’ve devoted ourselves to helping our clients and we fully understand our local, city, and state laws.


Sure, working with a large firm might sound great, that they have endless resources and multiple attorneys on staff. But are they worth the extra cost? Working with a large firm costs you more at the end of the day to help pay for their rent, their secretaries, and billing you for multiple levels of attorney reviews.

On the other hand, when you choose to work with a small firm, they can be more nimble, quick, and pay close attention to you. This often means more hands-on time with your case, and less overhead costs you pay for out of your pocket.

At Loscalzo & Loscalzo, P.C., we care about each and every one of our clients. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and help you receive the compensation you deserve. Contact us at (646) 846-4776 to discuss your case with us today.
