Litigation is a possibility present in everybody's personal, professional or business life. We start every commercial or professional enterprise in order to achieve success while complying with the law. However, sometimes our business is affected by a judicial claim. Our litigious ecosystem demands an expert that can conduct legal analysis in order to successfully avoid or face a judicial claim. However, a lawyer will only be able to effectively assist you if provided with all pertinent information. The attorney client privilege is meant to generate the requisite trust for you to share all information with counsel. Everything said to the lawyer from the moment you reach out to him for legal counsel to the end of trial is confidential. Tell your attorney everything relevant and he will be in a better position to represent you.
A judicial or administrative proceeding is conducted in an adversarial setting. That is, each party must make its case and persuade the judge or official. It is not enough to have the truth on your side; you need to prove it. Full cooperation with your attorney is of the essence: tell your story and don’t leave anything out; provide every document in a timely manner; keep your attorney informed of any development; trust your attorney. Do the foregoing, and your chances of winning will increase.
