How Long Do Consultations Take?

A typical consultation with a personal injury lawyer may last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the complexity of the case. However, if you feel that more time is needed to discuss your situation thoroughly, you can inquire about extending the consultation duration.

Extending the consultation time may involve scheduling a follow-up meeting or continuing the discussion over the phone or via email. This additional time allows for a more in-depth analysis of your case and ensures that all your questions and concerns are adequately addressed.

After the initial consultation, your lawyer will follow up with you to keep your case moving forward. These processes may include submitting additional documents, providing further details about the incident, or scheduling subsequent meetings with the lawyer.

What Happens After the Consultation?

After the consultation, you will need to make a decision regarding moving forward with the personal injury lawyer’s representation. If you decide to proceed, you will be required to sign a retainer agreement that outlines the terms of the legal representation, including the fees and scope of services.

Once the retainer agreement is signed, the lawyer will commence the necessary steps in the legal process. These steps may include further investigation, gathering additional evidence, negotiating with insurance companies or opposing parties, and eventually pursuing litigation if a settlement cannot be reached.
