  4. Having a good rapport with your attorney is of the utmost importance for effective advocacy. It is crucial that you address your concerns with your attorney and allow them the opportunity to explain there actions/ inaction. What you might perceive as your attorney not doing a good job, may simply be a case of miscommunication or defense strategy. If you remain uncomfortable with your attorney after communicating with them and voicing your concerns, you always have the option of retaining new counsel.
