What should I tell my Attorney in a consultation?

Finding an attorney to represent you in court is really important. There are some things that you should discuss with your attorney at a consultation to make sure that he/she is the right person to go ahead with your case.


Be honest

The first and the most important thing you have to do with your attorney is, to be honest. The consultations are confidential. So, you should not hesitate to tell your attorney all the things about you which are directly or indirectly related to the case. 


Tell them the worst things about you

You may wonder why would you tell the person the worst things about you when you hardly know a person. But the truth is that the other party and his/her attorney will definitely bring up the worst habits to make their case stronger. When your lawyer is aware of all the things about you, even drugs, alcohol, or any mental issue. Your attorney can defend you.

In case, you do not tell all the things honestly to your attorney at the consultation, there is a good chance that you may lose your case. By telling everything to your lawyer, you help your lawyer to get prepared for worst-case scenarios. Above all, your attorney will be all prepared to defend you in all these scenarios.
