Written by attorney Thomas Patrick Gill Jr.

Why do I have to fill out a questionnaire before being interviewed by a prospective attorney?

Filling out a questionnaire provides the attorney with important information that they will need in conducting the consultation. It's also a method of record keeping for the attorneys so they know who they've met with, what their contact information is and hopefully the attorney is taking notes about what they've discussed during their meeting. Also, you should know that the attorney, whether you hire them or not is bound by attorney-client confidentiality which will protect any sensitive information that you may put in your questionnaire.
