What To Expect At the Initial Consultation
The initial consultation is one of the most extremely important meetings with your attorney. This is the opportunity for both the lawyer and client to establish the relationship and to have an open and honest discussion about the charges, possible defenses, witness issues and the facts of the case. The most important thing is to be prepared to have an open and honest discussion. Most criminal defense attorneys do not judge clients. We surely don’t. We have seen it all. However, honesty can sometimes make the difference between winning and losing a case. The second most important thing to expect at the initial consultation is establishing a working relationship between the client and the attorney. Here, at the Kia Law Firm, we believe that the relationship between us is a special one. We need to establish trust and confidence with each other. We want you to feel safe with our assessment and our strategic planning of your defense. You need to feel comfortable that we have taken over your problem and are helping you receive the goals you wish to desire. We trust that with a great working relationship with each other, we can move to dismiss or reduce charges and to do our work professionally and with expediency.
