Play for His Client’s Case

A lawyer’s job is to provide legal advice, discuss the options, and listen to the problems that you might be facing and take necessary actions according to it. A lawyer will take your instructions about things that you want from the case or the outcome from the situation and then helps you to under the law according to your lawsuit. Not just that, there is also some unpaid overtime lawyer who is always offering their clients the best service.

So, many of you may not know about the roles a lawyer will play for you; they have so many duties and responsibilities for the society and his client. So let us talk about some of them.

Following all the instructions properly

As your lawyer, he should take correct and proper instructions while considering the things that you want from the case. He must give you accurate legal advice regarding the case and listen to you.

The most important things that a lawyer wants from you is your honesty. You must be honest with your lawyer. You should give the proper and correct information to your lawyer because, depending on that pieces of information and evidence, he will provide you with the advice. Depending on the situation, a lawyer may give you advice instantly, and if the case is critical, he might take some time to research to offer you the best advice. He has to provide you with the information in all of your situations, and you have to listen to your lawyer’s advice if you want the best outcome from the case.

Maintaining confidentiality

Most of the conversation and talk you will have will be confidential and only remains between you two. The meaning of this lawyer-client confidentially is the conversion between two of you will remain secret, and your lawyer cannot be able to share it with anyone.

But there is some particular time when a lawyer can share or have to share the information's, and those are:
  • If the conversations are needed for specific law
  • If the conversation can prevent a serious crime from happening.
  • If you have some information or your client is going to your someone’s life at risk or if you are at risk.
  • Avoid conflicts of interest
Sometimes a lawyer may not want to work for you if you do something like:
If you acted on behalf of others or if you pretend to be someone else. Or if you have been in a bad situation and taking your case might affect his reputations, then a lawyer might not like to take your case. 
  • If you go to a lawyer and it turns out he is already working for someone that involved in your case. Then he might reject your claim because he can’t be able to provide the best service for both of you.
  • Sometimes a lawyer can avoid your case because you and your lawyer's options are clashing.
  • So if it seems like your lawyer has a conflict of interest, then you should let him know.

Effective communication and manner

He has to keep effective communication with you. While working in your case, a lawyer has to be careful about his communication process. Giving a regular update of your case is another of his duty.

Your lawyer also should be honest with you, and his main concern must be the best interest of his clients. He has to be the one who will know the strength and weaknesses of the case and able to act accordingly. But if you did not like his way of wording things, you can also make complaints.
