What should I expect during my first meeting with an attorney? This is the first time I’ve decided to hire an attorney, and I’m not sure what to expect.

If you have been in an injury accident in Phoenix Arizona, it is best to seek legal representation with an experienced Phoenix car accident attorney.

Many people have never met with an attorney before and don’t know what to expect. So, what should you expect?

First and foremost, if you truly are meeting with an experienced Phoenix car accident attorney, you should expect the attorney to listen. Something has happened to you that has affected and is affecting your life, your health, and perhaps your ability to work. You are seeking an attorney to help you make sure these things are paid for, or reimbursed. It is important that the attorney understands all of the facts and circumstances and the impacts on your life. So first and foremost, you should expect your attorney to listen.

Once you have explained your circumstances, you should expect your attorney to be able to explain the legal process, how it works, how long it takes, and what is needed from you to be successful in your case. This is where experience comes into play.

Many attorneys simply like to talk.  They do not listen, and as such, there is a great chance that they will miss something.  That does you and your case no good.

Many attorneys believe you are simply seeing them because you want to get money.  However, very often what people want is something more than that.  Your Phoenix personal injury attorney needs to understand that. Many attorneys think that their job is simply to get you to the finish line, but an experienced injury attorney knows that more is required.

At Zachar Law Firm, we believe that in addition to helping your case get to the finish line with the best result, educating you regarding the process, how it works, how long it takes, and what will be expected of you is just as important.  The more you understand, the more you will get out of the process, and the more meaningful the end result will be to you.

These are the things you should expect to talk about in your first meeting with your experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney.
