Relationship Between Attorney And Client

It is very important that when you are looking for an attorney, you find one that you can trust. Trust may be the most important factor on your list of “what am I looking for in an attorney.” Part of an attorney’s job is to analyze your case and tell you what is good about your case and what is bad about your case in determining the reasonableness for your goals. If you want an attorney to tell you whatever you want to hear, just to make you feel better, that does not mean that your goals will be able to be achieved. There are some “rules and procedures” to litigation that may not make logical sense, but it is your attorney’s job to explain this to you at each step in your case. If you feel like your attorney is not in your corner because they are telling you something you do not like, that may be the best attorney you can have; however, you have to be able to differentiate between good legal counsel versus lack of knowledge or incompetence. If you have a good relationship with your attorney and you can trust that person, you will know that even though the advice is contrary to what you want to hear, it is the correct information and a plan “B” strategy needs to be created to get you to as close to your resolution goals as possible.
