New Jersey Divorce Attorney Explains What to Bring When Meeting with your Lawyer

shutterstock_409954129-300x200.jpgAs a dedicated New Jersey Divorce Attorney, I am often asked by clients what they need when meeting with their attorney. I think when someone asks me what should I bring to the meeting, I say to them, "Just yourself. Literally just yourself." The first meeting when you meet with that lawyer, you've got to find that connection. You're not going in there right away and going over your alimony numbers or child support or custody. You're about to turn over your money and your most intimate personal secrets to another human being that you have no idea who that person is. Go make the connection and make sure you know if like them or dislike them.

There's a misconception about lawyers and if are their just be a shark and take you money. You have to get along with this person. This person has to be to you like the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the President. You as the client are the President. I as the lawyer am the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. I make recommendations to you; you will make the ultimate decision after reviewing all the facts and stuff. If somebody comes to sit with me and they like me and respect me with what I'm saying, they'll be back the next day with the paperwork to go through everything else.
