Your lawyer is not a mind reader, and neither are you, but there are certain things you should know about them before hiring them. Learning what questions to ask, how to behave, and what’s to say to a lawyer, is definitely important. Still, you should be able to discuss some things with your lawyer openly and freely, like cgmp violations. Here are some things you should know and facts that will definitely come in handy next time you find yourself in this situation to talk to your lawyer.

1. Find Out More About Their Experience
It’s really important that you ask your lawyer about their previous experience. As a client you should be aware whether your lawyer is particularly experienced or not, as this may determine your own course of actions. Even though their experience will not necessarily affect the outcome of your decision whether or not you would hire them, you should still be aware of the level of their experience. Therefore before you even consider hiring a particular lawyer, make sure that you have discussed not only their level of experience, but the amount of effort they are willing to put in this case.
