How To Make The Most Of Your Solicitors Meeting

Mar 10, 2008
Finding a solicitor can be a daunting process. It can be a particularly difficult process as it is often the case that you find a solicitor for serious matters that you can't deal with on your own. As a result finding a solicitor can be quite a stressful choice. It can be especially stressful because solicitors are generally quite expensive.

So unlike other businesses where you can usually pay the fees for the best in the industry this is likely not to be possible. Nevertheless the industry is extremely well regulated and all solicitors are extremely well qualified. You will of course still want to search around and find out the best one that you can for your budget. It is important to make sure that you know the right questions to ask when you are meeting your solicitor for yourself.

The first thing you need to ask when you meet your solicitor is how long the meeting will last. It is important that you make the most of the time that you have with your solicitor especially bearing in mind that the costs of the meeting are likely to be high. As a result making the most of the time you have is imperative.

Making a list of questions in advance will help you make the most of your time. If you run through the list of questions that you have compiled many of the answers will be straightforward. It is still important that you make a note of the answers so that you can refer to them in the future. It is often the case that you can forget even the most basic of answers when you have come out of the meeting so don't be afraid to take notes.

Many of the answers that you get will be straightforward but if you do not understand an answer that you are given it is crucial that you make the solicitor explain it to you. It will be no help if you come out of the meeting without fully understanding what you have been told. This will only make the whole experience more confusing. This also applies to the questions that your solicitor asks you.

It is important that you are really clear with your answers and that you are brutally honest. If you tell your solicitor something that isn't entirely truthful it is possible that he or she will not be able to advise you fully. If this is the case then you may end up not benefiting from the advice you have paid for because it may not be correct to your circumstances.

If you have documents that you might think are useful to your case then be sure to make these ready for the solicitor. The solicitor should be given anything that might help them so any information that you have should be made available. It is also reasonable to ask your solicitor to provide you with a letter that details the points made at the meeting. This is a very useful way of keeping track on the verbal conversations you have so that you can keep track of what was said and when. The letter should also detail the advice that the solicitor has offered you so that you can be confident that you are taking the right actions.
