Every once in a while I write about documents we all really should have in place to make things easier for ourselves and our loved ones. Those notes usually include “You might need to see a lawyer about this.” I suspect that tends to help procrastination, right?
So I’m hoping these suggestions will help move things along. They apply whether you are looking for help with a contract, being sued, have a personal injury, are trying to right a wrong, drafting your will or setting up a trust, or helping settle someone’s matters after death. In today’s society, there are many reasons for consulting a lawyer.
1. Gather all documents and information you might need, make copies to give to the lawyer.
Include names of other people who might be involved, with how to contact them.
Remember you can talk to your lawyer and the conversation is confidential. Also remember that if you don’t get questions answered clearly and to your satisfaction, you may need to find another lawyer.
