A: PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS WOULDN’T CALL A DOCTOR FOR A DIAGNOSIS VIA THE PHONE/EMAIL YET THEY DON’T REALIZE THEY ARE DOING THE SAME THING WHEN THEY CALL/EMAIL A LAWYER TO ANSWER TO A LEGAL QUESTION.
IN MOST INSTANCES A LAWYER SHOULD NOT ANSWER A QUESTION WITHOUT GETTING ALL THE INFORMATION. I USUALLY TELL PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS TO WRITE OUT A DETAILED SUMMARY BEFORE THEY SEE A LAWYER SO THAT THEY DO NOT FORGET ANYTHING AND SINCE LAWYERS CHARGE FOR TIME IT WOULD TAKE THE ATTORNEY MINUTES TO READ A SUMMARY RATHER THAN HAVING TO PLAY SECRETARY AND WRITING EVERYTHING DOWN FOR AN HOUR.
IF A LAWYER DOES NOT HAVE ALL THE INFO THAT LAWYER CAN NOT GIVE AN ACCURATE ANSWER. JUNK IN, JUNK OUT.
HOWEVER, WITH THE LIMITED INFO I HAVE I WOULD SUGGEST CONTACTING THE LAWYER WHO REPRESENTED HIM. HE HAS THE FULL FILE AND IS THE BEST PERSON TO ADDRESS ISSUES YOU AND YOUR SON MAY HAVE.
