How to Prepare for an Initial Consultation
If you have been involved in a personal injury accident, in which another person’s actions directly or indirectly caused you to be injured or incur financial costs and losses, then you could be considering taking legal action, during which you will likely need legal representation. When you schedule an initial interview with a potential attorney, there are particular things you can do to prepare for this initial consultation to make it the most fruitful for you.
Steps for Preparation
In order to save time and make your legal process more efficient, you should consider taking the following steps when preparing for your consultation:
- Collect any documentation of your accident, such as pictures or police records
- Gather receipts that demonstrate that you’ve incurred financial expenses
- Consider what your primary aim is in your lawsuit (financial compensation, or something else?)
- Prepare questions for your consultation in which you can determine an attorney’s “fit” for you
With the right preparation, an initial consultation with an attorney can go more smoothly, allowing you to have the best opportunity to find the most skilled representation for your case with minimal effort.
