WHAT DOCUMENTS SHOULD YOU BRING WITH YOU?
Starting legal action can be stressful, and most people find that hiring a lawyer is already a stressful situation. You must do your best to prepare for your initial consultation, to get the best out of the process. An initial consultation can be more than a quick meeting; it can help you plan your strategy, see the potential risks and avoid future wear and tear during the legal process.
The most important thing to bring is a pen and a paper. Even if you have studied your legal situation, you can learn many things during the initial consultation. A lawyer can be an invaluable resource: they can ask questions that will help you see the potential risks and benefits during the legal process, and offer advice that will help you. Be prepared to write down any advice the lawyer gives you, and write down any questions the lawyer may need to answer to help you.
When you contact a lawyer to schedule an initial consultation, ask him what information he needs you to take. For example, a financial lawyer will want to see your financial information and a list of your debts. Write a list of what the lawyer requests and prepare all these documents before your consultation. If you do not know what the lawyer you want, put in a folder any accounts, notices, emails or other communications and documents that are relevant to your question of a legal nature.
Before your inquiry, you should write down any questions you have. Do not hesitate to ask what you may consider a “stupid” interrogation. Lawyers do not expect you to understand legal issues, and a good lawyer will be willing to help you understand what to expect and how to participate in the legal process. Remember: understanding your legal action can save you time and money and prevent complications.
Write a description of the situation that has led to you seeking the help of a lawyer. If you are facing an attachment, write a list of missed payments and any communication with your lender. If you are considering a divorce, write down any separation, prior legal procedures, and the events that led to that decision.
