Your attorney should not speak in legalese.
Finding an attorney who doesn't use complex legal jargon and is a “real person” can be difficult. You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and they should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.
Your attorney should be accessible.
You deserve a responsive legal team that communicates regularly and promptly returns your calls. Although legal matters can take time, you should feel confident in the progress of your case.
Your attorney should be realistic about costs and outcomes.
You want a favorable outcome as efficiently as possible. It is essential that your attorney set realistic expectations about the costs you should expect, concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.
