Questions about the attorney-client relationship
The reality is that your decision to work with a specific attorney is dependent upon the key factor of trust. Therefore, for a lawsuit to work well it is important that the client and attorney are able to trust each other. Without the aspect of trust from either party the client’s best interests may be lost. If the attorney does not trust you, they may feel the information being provided is false. Therefore, it is important that if you, as the client, did not understand something your attorney has said, ask.
To understand your potential attorney-client relationship, ask about other people in the office you are likely to be interacting with. These other people may include paralegals, legal secretaries or other assistants.
While your attorney is handling your case, active participation is required on your part. Therefore, ask about the obligations that you have as a client.
