Tips on How to Best Work With Your Lawyer

 

1.      Good communication between you and your attorney is the key to a good attorney-client relationship.

2.      Take time before your first appointment to organize and write down all information and facts that you remember.  This will help the attorney understand your problem and it will cut down on the information you may need to return with.  Be as clear, and brief, as possible.

3.      Bring all papers related to the case with you to your first interview/meeting with the attorney.

4.      Be honest and tell the attorney all of the facts.  Your attorney will hold them in strictest confidence and must know everything in order to be able to do the best job possible.

5.      Ask the attorney to analyze the matter and tell you honestly what he or she thinks, including all of the pros and cons of your case.

6.      Avoid unnecessary telephone calls to your attorneys, but do provide updates and/or questions to keep him or her informed.

7.      Consult with an attorney before signing documents or taking any legal action.  Discuss all possible consequences and listen to the advice of your attorney.
