What will I need for the initial consultation with a lawyer?

In order to save time and money, you should bring all relevant papers and information to your first appointment.  The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of people involved and documents such as lease agreements and contracts will help the lawyer understand your particular problem. Be prepared to explain your case completely and clearly -- sometimes writing down the important points in advance will help.
