Ways Your Lawyer Should Communicate With You
When you were involved in an accident on your way to Lucky Peak Dam, the Idaho Botanical Garden, or the Discovery Center of Idaho, you called an attorney to help get compensation for medical bills and vehicle repairs. Although you know your lawyer is busy, you feel he should respond to you in a timely manner, and you’re correct.
When a lawyer fails to communicate with his client, he is in violation of a code of ethics to which he is required to adhere. If he fails to do so, you may be able to file a legal malpractice suit against him.
Ways Your Lawyer Can Communicate With You
Your lawyer has a variety of methods from which to choose in regards to communicating with you. Here, we discuss a few of them:
- Letters. Your attorney can send correspondence through the mail regarding your case. Typically, this type of communication is used when showing clients paperwork that pertains to the case. However, your lawyer can also inform you of matters related to your case through this method.
- Email. An attorney has rights to talk to you via email. This type of communication is actually beneficial for both you and the lawyer, as it provides you with a written account of what the attorney has said to you. Additionally, the lawyer has documentation that he has been in communication with you.
- Phone. Perhaps the most common form of interaction, the phone is a means by which the lawyer can discuss up-to-the minute details about the case and receive immediate response. This is typically the most popular form of communication for divorce and accidents.
