If I hire an attorney, what am I responsible for doing and what does my attorney take care of?

Your responsibilities as a client are usually spelled out in the retainer agreement.  Generally, you are to cooperate with your attorney by following his or her instructions, including to keep your attorney apprised of your condition if you are injured and are still under treatment.

Your attorney’s responsibilities are expressed in the written agreement.  Your attorney is responsible for handling the legalities of your case and keeps you abreast of any developments that occur.  If your case involves litigation, your attorney will be responsible for litigating the case to conclusion.
