What To Expect During Your First Meeting With A Lawyer

It is only natural to feel a little anxious about what to expect during your first meeting with a lawyer at our firm, especially if you have never met with a lawyer before. Any situation can be made less stressful if you know what to expect, so we are going to walk you through the process.

Here are five things you can expect during your free initial consultation with Terrel B. DoRemus & Associates in Tulsa, Oklahoma:

1. You will be welcomed by our support staff.

First, you will be greeted with a smile from our office staff. We have made our office friendly and inviting, so our clients are immediately put at ease. You have enough on your mind, so we want you to feel "at home" when you come to see us.

Our support staff includes Stephanie, Ricardo and Donna, who will each go out of their way to treat you like family.

2. You will be asked about your situation.

When you meet with our attorney, Terrel DoRemus, he will ask you questions so that he makes sure he understands the situation you are facing and what you have been through, whether it is suffering a serious injury, being charged with a crime or simply needing estate planning advice.

Some questions may be hard to talk about or even think about, but details are necessary in order to figure out the best solution available to you. It is a good idea to write important details down before the appointment, if you are worried about forgetting them.

3. You will have time to ask questions.

In addition to the attorney asking you questions, you can also ask the attorney questions about the law or how the legal process works. We know that the law can be confusing, so we want to make sure that you are fully informed every step of the way.

It might be wise to write questions down and bring them to the meeting so that you make sure that all of your questions have been addressed. You can also take notes during the meeting as your questions are answered.

4. There will be a plan going forward.

At the end of the appointment, you will have an idea of what the next steps will be. You may still have questions because, in many cases, it will be necessary to do more investigating and fact-finding before you will know exactly what to expect in your case. But, you will have a goal in mind and a plan in place for reaching it.

5. Feel free to keep your options open.

Meeting with a lawyer at a free initial consultation doesn't mean that you are stuck with that lawyer for good. If you don't see eye-to-eye about your goals and plans for reaching those, or you simply want to see who else could potentially represent you, feel free to meet with other lawyers as well.

There is nothing to lose with the initial consultation because you are not required to hire us as your law firm or even pay us anything for the meeting.
