Full Disclosure - Why Telling Your Attorney EVERYTHING Is Critical in Charlotte Divorce Cases
Your initial consultation with an attorney can be intimidating. As the old saying goes, “We’ve heard it all.”A consultation is a private, confidential meeting. Attorneys are not permitted to reveal what is discussed during the consultation or to even confirm the firm met with you.
The primary reason for this consultation being confidential is so you are free to disclose all information to the attorney, whether you believe it is important or not.
It is in your best interests to disclose as much information to your attorney as possible. One of the worst situations that can arise during the Attorney-Client relationship is when the attorney learns something new about the situation that could have an enormous impact upon the case, which could have been avoided if the client had provided that information to the attorney sooner.
Attorneys at Miller Bowles Cushing stress the importance of your initial consultation. Partner Chris Miller says “Our goal is that you will leave your consultation feeling educated about the law and legal process as it applies to your situation, and with an understanding of your options for protecting your legal rights. In order for Miller Bowles Cushing to best advise you about how the law applies to your life, it is very important that you fully disclose the facts of your situation to the attorney.”
