Getting the most out of your meeting with a solicitor
If you’re seeking advice from a solicitor, it’s always sensible to do some preparation ahead of any meeting. Think carefully about the details of your case - the more preparation you do before the meeting, the more you'll get out of it. Make a list of the main points you want to make or the questions you want to ask. Gather any paperwork that might be relevant and put it in some kind of order so you can refer to it quickly. This will make it quicker and easier for your solicitor to understand your circumstances and give you proper advice.
