What Should I Discuss During My Initial Consultation?
The Purpose of an Initial Consultation
In the midst of a workers’ compensation claim, you’ll want to hire an experienced attorney to assist with your case. With the help of a lawyer, you will have a resource to ask questions, build your case, and protect your rights throughout the process.
You may be wondering how to find the best attorney for your situation. Many workers’ compensation lawyers (including the team at Alvandi Law Group, are available for initial consultations. The purpose of a consultation is to discuss the details of your claim with someone who is familiar with the workers’ compensation system before actually hiring someone, so you can feel confident in your choice. A consultation is also a good platform for asking any questions you have about your own claim, or workers’ compensation in general.
So, what should you discuss with your workers’ compensation attorney during an initial consultation to ensure you get the most out of the discussion?
Prepare in Advance
Before you pick up the phone and call a workers’ compensation attorney, you should gather all of the information you have about your claim and think about why you are calling. Compile all of the:
- Medical records
- Job documents
- Witness contact information
- And other information related to your case
A consultation is not only an opportunity for you to meet a lawyer, it is also an opportunity for the lawyer to meet you — providing comprehensive information will facilitate the process.

Ask the Lawyer About Their Practice
One purpose of a consultation is for the attorney to learn about your case, but another purpose is for you to learn about the attorney. If you decide to pursue a claim, you will be working with your lawyer for a while, and will want to choose a firm you are comfortable with.
Questions you can ask a workers’ compensation attorney to learn more about them include:
- Do you practice workers’ compensation law exclusively?
- Have you had any cases that are similar to my situation in the past?
- What is your in-trial experience?
I've dealt with Veronica Estrada on several cases, and I must say her work is one of a kind. There is never an issue when certain things need to get taken care of on a case. Prompt responses are always given from this office. I don't think they know what lag even means. I highly recommend this office for anyone in need of representation and wants that personal touch. No one does it better.- Daniel
What can I say... Great firm! Beautiful office! Knowledgeable staff. Sheila kept me up to date with my case. I recently had a deposition and the office is amazing. From the receptionist to my attorney Meagan. It feels great to have a team by my side helping me from beginning to end.- Carlos
Alvandi Law Group took my workers' comp case when others did not want to give me the time of day, My work was giving me the runaround and did not want to send me to a doctor. The attorneys' office quickly sent me out to a doctor. I had many many questions and Sheila and Veronica have been very patient with me in answering them. They have helped me get benefits while I am out of work.- Junior
This law group is the best. I have been dealing with Michelle Espino and she is a very attentive and sweet person. I was originally dealing with another law group for a year and never once seen a doctor. When I told her about my problem, she was quick to help me out and she even got me a doctors appt within a week. I highly recommend this law firm. They have relieved a great deal of stress I have been going through.- Anonymous
