When Should You Schedule Your Initial Consultation With an Attorney?

In my opinion, anytime that you are either contemplating legal action or have been served with legal documents is a good time to contact an attorney and schedule a consultation. An initial meeting with an attorney is important for many reasons. Some of which are:

  1. You get to discuss your case with an attorney and find out if you have a case that is worth pursuing.
  2. If the attorney finds that you do have a case that is worth pursuing then you may briefly discuss the possible strengths and weaknesses of your case and the possible courses of actions that you will may to take.
  3. Initial consultations allow you the opportunity to decide if the attorney is the right one for you, as well as for the attorney to decide if he or she will take your case.

You are under no obligation to hire an attorney just because you had a consultation, whether it’s paid for or whether it’s a free. In my opinion, one of the most important things for your case is the attorney-client relationship. You need to feel comfortable with the attorney that has taken your case and the attorney that is representing you. That to me, is the most important thing in any legal action. A consultation can help in determining that with little to no commitment.
