Choosing the right attorney for your personal injury, workers’ compensation or nursing home abuse case is a tall order.

Tips for talking to prospective lawyers
When you’re talking to a potential lawyer, it’s important that you tell them the unvarnished truth about your case. In return, you’ll learn more about how they operate, and whether they’re a good fit for your needs.
Here’s how to get the most out of your meeting:
- Bring all available documentation: It’s hard for lawyers to tell whether you have a good personal injury case without any documentation. Even if your version of events sounds good, they’ll still want to see photos, police reports and medical reports. This ensures your lawyer has the full picture and can reasonably predict the legal outcome.
- Have a list of questions: When you meet with a lawyer, have a list of questions to ask. This should include the lawyer’s professional opinion about your case, what you can do to bolster your chances and what kind of remedies might be available to you. Don’t hesitate to ask why the lawyer believes this to be true.
- Be honest: When talking to an attorney, it’s very important you are completely honest. Many communications with an attorney are private. If you don’t give your lawyer the full picture from the start, inconvenient truths could come back to haunt you later.
- Inquire about communication: Finally, ask your prospective lawyer how they handle communication. How will you be informed about new case developments? Who will be your point of contact? You’re entitled to updates and answers—make sure your attorney’s style meets your needs.
