If you prepare yourself before a meeting with your Lawyer, you are more likely to have a quick, efficient and productive meeting. Most Lawyers charge by the hour so if you save time for your Lawyer, you will save yourself money. Check with your Lawyer before a meeting if there is any documentation that you need to bring in. Make sure you bring everything that you need with you and be punctual!

Your Lawyer is there to help you and give you advice. They can only do this is they know the truth. If you hide important information, it may end up costing you both time and money!
3. Prepare for phone calls
Before you contact your Lawyer, consider what you wish to discuss and make notes. Get any paperwork that you may need ready. These simple steps will save you time when talking to your Lawyer. If your Lawyer charges you by the hour, then this will save you money and reduce your legal fee's!
