Meeting With an Attorney: What to Expect

When meeting with an attorney, a person can expect to get legal advice specific to their case and circumstances. Whether you need help with a divorce, estate planning, bankruptcy, a criminal issue, or anything else, you can expect to meet with a knowledgeable attorney at Bononi & Company who specializes in the area of law you need help with. 

We understand that each situation is unique, and as a result, each consultation is unique. 

The purpose of the first consultation is twofold: for the client and the attorney to get acquainted with one another, and for the client to supply the attorney with information that may be useful in the future. It is also an opportunity for the client to discuss their case in depth with the attorney, and for the attorney to give legal advice and options to the client, as well as a timeframe for their case. 

Initial consultations are often used to discuss retainer agreements, costs, and any other information or documents that a client may need to gather for the attorney before continuing. 

It is beneficial for a client to bring any material relevant to the topic for which they are seeking legal counsel, including any legal documents they may already have, to the consultation. 

We at Bononi & Company hope that by the time you leave the office, you will feel much better prepared to confront your case, knowing that you have a team of attorneys on your side.


If you have any questions about the topic discussed in this article, please give us a call at Bononi & Company 724-832-2499.
