In this four part series of "How to Help Your Attorney Help You", Attorney at Law Michael S. Davis discusses:
When should I contact an attorney?
What should I look for in an attorney?
What should I bring for my appointment?
What do I tell my attorney?
WHAT SHOULD I BRING FOR MY APPOINTMENT
Cases can range from very minor to very serious. In some cases little more than a summons is needed for the interview process. In other cases it is very important that you bring any paperwork that you have received from the police or the courts in addition to miscellaneous notices you may have received from DMV or other agencies.
Also, you should be prepared to give the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses, victims or others that you are aware of that might be important to your case. This does not only include people who might be favorable to your defense, but those who may testify against you. Sometimes you may not have this information, but where it is available always present it to your attorney. If it is not available at least advise your attorney if you know of witnesses that exist. There may be ways for your attorney to track them down such as through the use of a private investigator or the police.
At the Law Office of Michael S Davis, we would be happy to discuss your situation at no cost and help you determine your best course of action.
