What is the firm’s communication policy?

Lawyers are very busy; however, that does not mean that your lawyer should leave you hanging for days at a time.

Before you sign on with a lawyer, ask what the firm’s communication policy is. Consider asking the following:

  • Will you receive updates each week or only if something happens in your case?
  • How long will it take for the lawyer to get back to you?
  • Will you be in touch with the lawyer directly or with a paralegal?
  • Is it best to contact the firm through email or over the phone?

You want a lawyer who makes you feel comfortable. You should be able to sit down with your lawyer and ask any question about your case. It is better to ask a question than to worry about things. Communication is necessary for the attorney-client relationship to work best. We welcome your questions and any input you may have about your personal injury claim.
