Attorneys provide free consultations as a way of helping both the prospective client and the attorney assess the merits of the potential case. So what do you need to know to have a great experience and get the most out of your consultation? Uplift law provides the answers you seek.
Bring the proper documentation
It kind of goes without saying, but it’s extremely important that you bring any and all relevant documents with you to the consultation. An attorney is only as good as the information you provide. They rely on you to provide accurate and essential details. Nothing in terms of information should be left out of the process of gathering relevant information for your case. This is why it is important that you be upfront about everything, because should an attorney take your case, and unflattering information comes out during negotiations, or during trial, it could hinder our efforts to fight on your behalf.
How Long Do Free Consultations last?
The typical consultation lasts approximately 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the case and what documentation you bring with you. We provide both English and Spanish consultations and can do them over ZOOM or phone as a precaution against Covid-19.
Not all free consultations are created equal
Just because something is offered as free doesn’t mean it’s good. Below are a few warning signs that a “free consultation” is more trouble than it’s worth.
- You are rushed and or quickly interviewed.
- After the initial intake process, you don’t speak to an actual attorney about your case.
- They don’t listen to what you have to say.
- It takes weeks and weeks for anyone from the law firm to contact you. This is especially damaging for your case as time is of the essence.
