Making copies of paperwork in an organized way saves your attorney time and saves you money. It is recommended that you make a duplicate copy for yourself to make phone conversations during your case more efficient. Take the time to get to know the paralegal, secretary, receptionist working on your case. They are often the front line of defense receiving motions, assisting with discovery, marking and organizing your file and exhibits, and managing billing for your case.
When communicating with your lawyer’s office, it’s helpful to send an email to both the attorney and the key staff member on your case. Copying unnecessary people drives up your bill and often results in less staff members feeling it’s their job to handle your email. Striking good communication with your legal support team is key-provide them with timely information that bears on legal proceedings and secure support system including counselors, physicians, and family members to assist you with the emotional support that you will likely need.
