Writing down questions you want to ask a lawyer during an initial consult can ensure that you get all of the info you need during this meeting.

Concluding the three-part blog Initial Consults: How to Prepare to Meet with a Personal Injury Attorney¸ here, we will provide some final thoughts on how accident victims can prepare for their initial consults with lawyers if they are able to do so.

Prep Tip 4: Think of/Write Down Questions You Have for the Lawyer

Just as a lawyer will be asking you questions about the accident or event that caused your injury, you will have the opportunity during the initial consult to ask the attorney questions about:

  • His or her experience
  • What you should expect from the case and the legal process. 

To make sure that you do not forget any of the questions you may have thought of, it can be helpful to write down all of your questions ahead of time so you are prepared when you meet with the attorney face to face.

Some examples of questions that you may want to ask during the initial consult include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • How many years of experience do you have litigating personal injury cases?
  • Do you have specific experience with cases like mine? If so, please describe this experience.
  • Can you provide me with former clients’ contact info so I can get their feedback regarding your services and their experiences with you?
  • What are your fees?
  • How often will I hear from you/get updates regarding my case? And how will these updates be provided (Phone calls? Emails? Mailed letters?)?
  • Should I expect a trial in my case?
  • How long will it take to resolve my case?
  • What else do you need from me to get my case started?
