When you meet with an attorney be prepared and be ready to ask and answer questions. The attorney will step you through the process, but there are some things you should remember at this stage.

  • Arrive a little bit early so you can relax and compose your thoughts before the meeting.
  • Be honest. Tell the attorney everything that you can think of even if it doesn't seem important to you.
  • Ask all of your questions.
  • Remember that although you have gone to the attorney for help, this is also an audition for them. You do not have to work with this attorney!
