Once you choose the lawyer who is going to represent your interests, there are certain things that you should expect as a client. First, you are owed the utmost duty of confidentiality and your lawyer’s strict adherence to ethical rules, including one that requires an attorney to zealously advocate for his or her client. You should expect to be reasonably informed about the status and important events in your case, and you should expect to participate in important decision-making on various issues related to your case.
You should also expect to fully understand the fee arrangements, how your lawyer’s time is being dedicated to your case, and the corresponding cost to you for your lawyer’s services. You should expect, in general, to be well informed and prepared about one of the most difficult processes that you may go through during your entire life.
