    An attorney may, as a matter of policy, first investigate for possible conflicts of interest and obtain a signed agreement before accepting new clients.

    Client Responsibilities

    • Treat the attorney and the attorney's staff with courtesy and consideration
    • Pay the attorney's fee in accordance with any fee agreements you have signed to the extent required by law. If you do not pay the fee, the attorney is not obligated to represent you.
    • Notify the attorney immediately if any contact information has changed. If your address or phone number have changed, the attorney can't reach you.
    • Notify the attorney immediately of any developments that can affect the outcome of your case. This includes any communications you may receive.
    • Be completely honest. If you aren't completely honest with the attorney, the attorney cannot do the best job.
    • Request an explanation from the attorney if you are not satisfied with any development.
    • Keep your requests reasonable. Twelve phone calls per day can keep the attorney from effectively representing you. Most attorneys are good about getting information to you very quickly. If you don't understand a development, ask for clarification. But don't expect an hourly progress report.
    • Be patient.
