What should I bring with me?

Make sure that you bring all of the relevant documents that might help us to evaluate your case.  This includes any court documents, letters, pictures, reports, and medical records.


Typically, we will send you a New Client Intake Form when we schedule your appointment.  Completing this Form prior to your meeting will shorten your wait time.  Also, please bring any contact information you have for people that are associated with your case (both for and against).


Who else should come with me?

The Attorney-Client Privilege allows you and your attorney to discuss the gritty details of your case without fear of someone forcing your attorney to disclose anything you have revealed.


At Matthew Harris Law, we take the Attorney-Client Privilege very seriously and hold your information in the strictest of confidences.  If we allow people that aren’t directly related to your case, such as family members and friends, then you may inadvertently waive that privilege and your attorney could be forced to disclose what you have revealed.


So in an effort to preserve your rights, we ask that you not bring family members or friends to your meetings with us.  If you must bring someone else with you, then explain to them why they must sit in the waiting room instead of sitting in the meeting.


Are my children allowed to come to my meeting?

Because much of our practice is devoted to Family Law, we love spending time with kids and truly look forward to helping their legal situations. 


We aren’t like other law firms that prohibit children from the office, but we do encourage you to leave children with a caregiver, if they are not directly involved in the case, during your meeting so we can focus on your legal issues.

When should I make an appointment?

We recommend that you plan to make an appointment 2 days in advance.  This will give us greater flexibility in creating our schedule and allows us to prepare for our meeting.


If you have a pressing matter and need to meet sooner, we will do our absolute best to accommodate your schedule.


How should I dress for our meeting?

If you need to make an appearance in court, we’ll discuss your wardrobe; but until then just dress comfortably and avoid anything with offensive slogans or images.
