During a free initial case consultation, it is important for your potential attorney to get a read on your legal situation and the specifics of your case. You will likely start by informing the case analyst about what happened leading up to your alleged offense and arrest, and recall as much as you can about how the police acted, what was said by either side, and the actions that have been taken since then.
In addition to giving the attorney a general idea of the legal situation you are facing, it also gives your potential representative an opportunity to learn more about your mannerisms, ability to recall detail, and general impression that you may give a jury or judge in a criminal case.
After the initial facts of the case have been covered, an attorney will provide you with general information regarding your case, relevant experience, and potential laws, legal issues, and court procedures you may face. The attorney will also likely inform you of some of the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and let you know some potential outcomes that may be possible in your unique situation.
There are a few main points that you may want to bring up, if a case analyst forgets to cover them during your consultation. First, you will want to know a little bit about the firm’s relevant experience and past cases in the area of law you are facing. In addition, you may want to ask questions about a firm’s track record or winning percentage, something you may already have a good read on from past results listings or client testimonials.
If the attorney hasn’t already addressed it, you might want to ask how strong your case is so that you begin with a realistic expectation of the potential results you could face. An honest legal opinion can set you up for success and help you properly prepare for the rest of your case, and it is critical to get a great understanding of your situation as early on as possible.
You also should ask the attorney about potential sentencing options or plea deals that may be available, especially if your chances of achieving an outright case victory aren’t high. Lastly, you will likely want to discuss an attorney’s potential fees, with knowledge that you really get what you pay for when it comes to a defense lawyer. An attorney who seems extremely cheap should raise a few red flags, though you may want to consider a few options and compare attorney’s track records before making your final decision.
If you agree to let an attorney represent you after your initial consultation, you will have to figure out the terms of your representation, as long as the attorney does not have a conflict of interest or another factor that may stop him or her from representing you. Other reasons for not taking a case may include a lack of evidence that would be necessary to get you the results you need or a difference between what you are willing to spend and how much the attorney would need to properly represent you.
