Preparing For Your Initial Consultation

The initial consultation with a lawyer is an opportunity for you to become acquainted with the attorney and convey your concerns regarding the factual circumstances surrounding your specific matter.  It is an opportunity for the attorney to make an initial evaluation of the facts that you have presented and offer guidance as to the applicable laws governing your specific situation. 

It is important to come to your consultation prepared.  For some individuals, it is effective to draft an outline, including specific questions, relating to your matter and present them to your attorney at the time of your consultation.

To assist you in this process, we have provided Client Questionnaires, as they may relate to your Family Law matter or Civil Litigation matter.  These forms are to be used as informational purposes only and may be downloaded for your use and presented to your attorney at the time of your consultation.
It is important to note that your initial consultation with a lawyer, even if prior to retaining that lawyer, is protected by the attorney-client privilege and rules of confidentiality.  Therefore, all information discussed at your initial consultation will be strictly confidential.

If you wish to discuss your matter with an experienced attorney, contact the Law Offices of Sonya A. Bouma PLC for your consultation:  (209) 527-8700.  You may also contact us via our website.
