Do I Have To Go To My Lawyer’s Office for an Initial Consult?
Not always. Some attorneys want you to come to the office for an initial consultation. This allows you to become familiar with your lawyer and get to know them on a very personal level. You can also bring any documents they will need to review, such as medical bills or a pain journal.
However, in the age of COVID-19, lawyers have started using technology to get to know their clients. Zoom calls, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, and other platforms allow people to connect easily and discuss matters in-depth.
At Anderson Injury Lawyers, we encourage you to call us or reach out via our website’s contact form. We offer a free initial consultation. If a phone is more comfortable for you, then we can give you a call. If a video meeting is preferred, then we will hop on our computer for a meeting. Any documents we need to see can be scanned or mailed to us.
When Will I Have To Go To My Lawyer’s Office?
In reality, you don’t need to come to the office much at all. We may have an initial contract that needs to be signed, but a good attorney can work with your schedule to make that happen.
Will I Have To Go To Court in Person?
If your case goes to court, you may have to appear in person. However, your attorney can represent you at hearings and conferences. This allows you to focus on your tasks while your attorney handles the legal matters.
If your case works toward a settlement, you won’t have to appear unless we go to mediation. Your attorney can do most of the negotiations via email, phone, and video calls. Then, the best lawyers will keep you updated at each step. If we do go to mediation, you will want to be present to accept or reject an offer and sign documents, if necessary.
Work With the Right Lawyer To Avoid In-Person Meetings
While some attorneys want to meet with you out of tradition, Anderson Injury Lawyers knows you are too busy to make a trip to our offices frequently. We will make sure you only have to come in when necessary.
