Whether you are taking part in a class action lawsuit, or you are contacting a trusted attorney at our law office for a personal injury lawsuit, one thing remains true: you need to be honest with your lawyer. It can be tempting to bend the truth, leave out key facts, or tell your story the way you think will benefit you most. However, not being 100 percent honest with your lawyer will never help you in the long run. As a trusted attorney in New Orleans, serving the Gulf South, Jonathan Andry has heard it all. Nothing you say will shock an experienced lawyer at our firm. You can bring full honesty to your case and we will use this honesty to fight aggressively for your rights. Read on to learn specifically why you should be upfront and honest with your lawyer, no matter what.
1: Everything Is Used In the Court Of Law
An important thing to keep in mind when heading to court is that every single thing that can be used in the case will be used in the case. At the Andry Law Group we are committed to helping you fight against unfair scenarios. This work often involves taking on the giants of the world. When you are fighting powerful corporations or entities, you better believe they will come back with the best defense they possibly can. This means the case is going to be put under the microscope. Every single detail they can dredge up, they absolutely will. If you let us know every detail about your case with complete and total honesty, we have a better chance of building you a case that can withstand their scrutiny. If, however, you withhold information from us, it could be more difficult for us to build you a solid case.
2: Surprises Are Not Good
While you may enjoy having your loved ones throw you a surprise birthday party, there are some situations in which surprises are the very last thing we want to happen. In the court of law, the best cases involve being prepared for everything. If you are not honest with your lawyer, your lawyer runs the risk of being surprised by new information during the case. If you divulge everything to us upfront, we can properly prepare for these details being brought up in court. Remember, a lawyer is trained to handle cases. That means we have the experience needed to construct a compelling case, even when you feel like there is no shot of you winning. We cannot, however, use a crystal ball to see into the future.
3: You Should Trust Your Lawyer
If you do not feel like you can be honest with your lawyer, odds are good you need to pick a new lawyer. Your lawyer should be fighting for you, and you should be confident in that reality. If you do not feel comfortable talking to your lawyer candidly about your case, it is time to look elsewhere. Here at the Andry Law Group, we are completely committed to our clients. We absolutely value your honesty and transparency. You can trust us to work our hardest for your best interest. If you have questions about how much information we need, don’t hesitate to ask us. The best relationship you can have with your lawyer is an open and honest one. By working together, we can help you stand up to your offender.
