You finally set up an appointment with an attorney. What should you bring to your first meeting? Hi, I’m Frank Nunes. I’m a California personal injury trial attorney practicing in the state of California.
It happens all the time. I set a meeting with a client, we pick a date, we pick a time that works, we send a confirming letter and then they say, “Well, what am I supposed to bring with me to the meeting?” And even when you tell them, sometimes they forget, but I’m going to tell you now so you’ll know when you meet with your attorney what to bring. The most important thing you can do is bring down any writings you have that detail the facts or the witnesses or pictures of the collision. Bring that with you. It’s important to bring that with you because typically those are done in close time to the incident, when everything is fresh, when the evidence is still there, memories are still clear, witnesses are still at the scene.
The second thing I like you to bring are pictures of the cars. And as I’ve said in other videos, and I’ll say it again in this video, I like you to bring pictures of the other driver’s car. Why is that so key? You typically will always have access to the car you were in, or that you were driving at the time of the collision. It’s harder for you to get a picture of the other driver’s vehicle before you consult with a lawyer. And that’s what the purpose of consulting with a lawyer is, is to evaluate your claim and looking at the picture of the damage is part of the evaluation. Finally, on a technical note, bring in your insurance policies, all of them. Your health insurance, your car insurance, your disability insurance, any insurance policy you may have.
Just bring them. When in doubt, just throw them in and bring them to the meeting. I will sort through those policies for you. And we will find out what types of coverage’s you have and the terms of your coverage. And this will help you map out what you can expect to do in your personal injury case.
Well, that’s it for today’s video on things to bring with you to the first meeting with an attorney. By the way, if you found this interesting subscribe to our YouTube channel. Why?

We would suggest that if you are looking for an attorney who is honest, straight-forward, and very personable, who will get the most for your injuries, then look no further. Frank Nunes is the attorney for you!
I have worked with a number of attorneys over my 73 years. When I found myself a victim of a rear end auto accident and with Insurance Companies giving me the good old run around treatment, I knew I needed help. Dreading to talk with one of the attorneys I used in the past because I deemed them as big a problem as I was encountering, I decided to look for a new face to represent me. I found Frank Nunes and his staff of professionals, from the moment I met and counseled with them they helped me get my life back on track both physically and legally. If I ever need a counselor for any legal matter in the future, I will be seeking the advice and counsel of Frank Nunes and his staff of professionals.
Thanks, Frank and all your staff, for all your help both personally and legally.
