Before the meeting, make notes about your legal situation so you can easily go over the important points with the lawyer. Bring the names, addresses and telephone numbers of everyone connected with your case (including witnesses), as well as all papers involved in your case. Some lawyers may ask to see the papers before the meeting. If the one you’re meeting does, fax everything the lawyer requests as quickly as possible so he/she has enough time to go over it all before meeting with you.
