What to Bring to your First Meeting with a Lawyer
At Velletta & Company, our number one goal is to provide each of our clients with exceptional customer service. This starts right from the very first meeting. Throughout your matter, you may find yourself in our office or in contact with us quite frequently and we want to make sure we start the relationship off on the right foot!
Here are 5 things that you as the client can bring to make the process go even smoother.
- Two pieces of photo ID.
We need to confirm that you are you! Your ID is necessary for us to have relevant information about you that relates to the case such as your legal name, drivers license #, etc. Examples of acceptable ID include Driver’s License, Passports and Medical Services Card (with photo ID).
- Pen & Paper
We will cover a number of things in our first meeting and there may be certain steps or documentation that we need you to follow through with—so note-taking in our meetings is always encouraged! Whether it is a pen and paper or notes on your cell phone—anything works.
- A List of Questions
Before your meeting write down any questions you may have. We are happy to answer them all and to help you understand the process that will take place. We want to make sure the process is as stress-free for you as possible.
- Relevant Documents
Bring any documents you currently have relating to your case. These may be a range of things and will vary based on your case. But the general rule of thumb is that if it has any relevance at all to your case, bring it in.
- Method of Payment
Please ensure that you bring a method of payment with you. We will notify you before the meeting of our consultation or retainer fees if they apply.
By bringing these 5 items with you to your first meeting we can ensure the process goes even smoother for both parties involved. We can also dive right into the details of your case and begin the steps necessary to ensure the best outcome possible!
