Preparing to meet with your lawyer

Before meeting with a lawyer, it is helpful to prepare a summary of the facts about your situation. In many cases, it is helpful to create a chronology of events, which can be sent to the lawyer prior to the first meeting so that legal issues can be identified and more meaningful questions can be explored at the meeting. It is also critical that your lawyer knows any particular facts or unique circumstances about either the matter or your business or personal situation that might affect the case. Sometimes this is difficult to determine in advance. If you are in doubt, raise it with your lawyer. The information you give to your lawyer will be privileged. This means that it cannot and will not be disclosed to anyone without your consent.
