Have you heard the saying “communication is key?” This is something that people say in many aspects in life, but it is something that is definitely true. When someone is looking for an attorney to help them with an important legal matter, they have to consider the communication between themselves and their counsel. As a client, you should be able to communicate with your lawyer throughout the entire process from hiring to conclusion.
Open communication can make things like asking questions and addressing your concerns much easier. During the process of selecting a lawyer, you should be able to ask them about their experience, if they have handled similar cases, and what they charge. You can also ask the attorney about their history winning cases like yours. All of these factors can help you make your decision.
If you have retained an attorney, the communication should still remain very important. There may be updates throughout the case. You have the right to ask about these and any other concerns you may have regarding your situation.
The biggest thing open communication provides is trust. Without trust, an attorney-client relationship may not be as successful as it possibly could be. Unfortunately, not all attorneys are open to the communication required to build trust. This is a time when there is so much at stake for a client, especially in medical malpractice matters. You need to be able to trust the attorney representing your case and know that they have your best interests in mind.
