It helps to think about your relationship with your lawyer as you would a relationship with your medical doctor. You need to go in from time to time to have a checkup, and occasionally you’ll have a problem that needs some attention. That’s where the similarities stop, since legal proceedings are definitely an entirely different issue. When you’re working with an attorney, it helps to know what to expect from them, and what they need from you.
Most people don’t have much experience in dealing with lawyers. Let’s face it, you don’t really need the services of a lawyer in your everyday life. It’s when things become exceptional that you need legal advice. As a result, communicating with an lawyer can seem like learning to speak another language. You are understandably anxious, worried, and even angry at the situation in which you find yourself. Law is a highly specialized profession, and it’s perfectly okay not to know how to communicate with your lawyer.
