Why it is important to discuss your case thoroughly with your attorney
It is important to thoroughly discuss all aspects of your case (even those which you think are simple) with your attorney before deciding which parts you want to do yourself and which ones the attorney will assist you with. It is equally important to realize that there may be important issues presented by your case of which you are not even aware. You could be at serious legal risk about an issue you do not even realize exists. If you do not discuss all potential legal issues with your attorney, how will you know?
Never make assumptions about the law that applies to your case. The law programs you have seen on TV are rarely accurate, and just because you’ve “seen it on TV,” does not mean it is correct, or even “legal.” “Law and Order” takes place in New York, it is often inaccurate in regard to New York state law and procedures, it is completely unreliable when dealing with California law. The only way you can be sure is to talk it over with a qualified and licensed attorney.
Sometimes new issues will pop up after your case is started. If they do, it is important to advise your attorney and discuss them, so that you know the potential legal consequences. Remember that your attorney can only advise you on matters you tell him/her about, so it is essential that you provide complete information about your case.
Remember, you and your attorney are working as a team. That means good communication and a clear understanding of each person’s assignments is essential.
