Before the first meeting with your lawyer, make notes about your legal situation, so that you can easily go over the important points when dealing with the lawyer. Bring the names, addresses and telephone numbers of everyone connected to your case (including witnesses), as well as all documents connected to your case. Some lawyers may ask to see the documents before the meeting. If the lawyer you see requests it, it is important to send them as soon as possible so he is prepared for your first visit.
Among the things, you should ask the lawyer is whether you will personally work on your case or have another member of the firm handle all or part of it. If you involve a second lawyer and / or another member of the firm, you should also talk to them.
If you do not understand anything the lawyer says, ask for an explanation in simple terms. Find out how long the lawyer who can take your case waits, what steps will be involved in the preparation and in presenting it in a trial (if necessary), what is expected of you in the future preparation of the case, and how the lawyer will charge your services.
