Working with Your Attorney
- Take notes of what your lawyer tells you.
- Keep these notes and all letters and documents sent to you by your lawyer together in a file or folder.
- Tell the lawyer if any of your personal details change.
- Ask the lawyer questions if you don't understand what has happened or what will happen next.
- Ask the lawyer what it means to agree to "settle" your legal matter instead of going to court (as well as what this means about costs).
