legal consultations often do not involve immediate legal representation

Legal consultations can be an important step in any difficult situation. If you are facing problems with bankruptcy, separation, or divorce, legal consultations can help you understand how the legal process will turn out in your situation. Many people don’t fully know what to expect before a legal consultation, however, and this is key to making sure you get the most out of the consultation time.

Most importantly, legal consultations often do not involve immediate legal representation. The purpose of the consultation is to determine if the attorney is the right one to take your case, or if your case is worth pursuing. Generally, a consultation involves a meeting between client and attorney to discuss the facts of the client’s situation, as well as if and how to proceed.

These consultation meetings are completely confidential, even if the attorney does not take on your case. It is important to be honest and open during a consultation, so the attorney has a complete picture of the situation and better able to determine a course of action. Depending on which attorney you choose, legal consultations may or may not be free of charge. These meetings are generally held in person, but in some cases are done over the phone.
