Ask for an in-person meeting and bring a list of your questions. Make a copy of your list of questions and share it with your lawyer. Take notes in the meeting so you know which topics have been addressed adequately and which need further explanation. Your lawyer may refer to laws or legal concepts you’re unfamiliar with; if so, don’t be embarrassed to ask for clarification. If you try this and your questions are still unanswered, you may want to schedule a consultation with another lawyer and see if that person would be a better fit.
