Questions to Bring to Legal Consultations

Working within the legal world can be stressful, especially since many people do not have a lot of experience with the law outside of the occasional traffic ticket. If you need to talk with a lawyer, you might not be sure what questions to ask or where you should start. Here at the Law Office of Melissa Stewart, formerly Groff Law Firm, we want you to feel prepared and confident when it comes to your legal proceedings, starting with the legal consultation. We have compiled a list of questions to bring to your legal consultations that can help you make the most of these appointments, including:

  • How often have you worked on cases that are similar to mine? Experience can mean a world of difference when it comes to your case. Knowing the ins and outs of your particular law case can make a big difference and working with an experienced lawyer like we provide can be a wonderful opportunity.
  • What is your level of experience? There is nothing wrong with interviewing your lawyer! Just like you would interview for a job, a legal consultation is a chance to vet out a lawyer that will work for you.
  • What outcomes do you foresee for my case? Unlike many other fields, there are no two cases that are identical in the legal world. The best you can look for are cases that have similar circumstances and then determine the methods used to gain the outcome. An experienced lawyer can help determine the likely outcomes for your case based on current events as well as past experience. 

These are just some of the questions that you can ask during legal consultations. For more information, please contact our team at the Law Office of Melissa Stewart today!
