Initial Client Consultation Following the Dog Bite in McKinney

In this case, the lawyer and the client had known each other for a long time, so there was none of the usual need for trust-building in a first meeting. She was seriously injured and needed help because she was afraid of its possible history and whether it might attack someone else. In cases in which the lawyer and client do not know each other, the lawyer wants to get to know the client first. The attorney answers questions about the process and how it works and gives the client an understanding of what will happen during the case.

Importance of Communicating

The lawyer and the firm want to have robust communication among the attorneys, staff, and the client. They want to make sure the client understands all the way through the process of what is going on in the case, where it sits in the process, and what the next stages are. At that initial stage, the lawyer likely does not know a lot of the facts involved, such as insurance coverage and the extent of injuries. Over time, these issues are figured out. Communicating these developments within the client’s team is critical in case preparation.

Documents Filed After First Meeting with Client

At the first meeting with a client, the only documents that get created are an interview sheet, various authorizations, and a contract between attorney and client. Texas law requires a written contract before a firm can do contingency work for someone. In the McKinney case, medical authorizations also were needed. The interview produced information about the dog, the bites, and location so the investigation could begin.

The investigative work often means gathering other documents, what animal control did, and whether it knew of previous incidents involving the dog. The case also involved attempting to confirm rumors the dog had bitten other people and then tracking down witnesses to those incidences.

McCraw Law Group is an exceptional firm and I could not ask for more than what I received with their services. All of... their staff, from the clerks to the attorneys, were extremely helpful and caring and constantly asked me if I needed anything or if I had any questions or concerns. If you need to have someone on your side and trust them to have your best interests in mind, I would place that trust in The McCraw Law Group.Would I recommend them to my friends and family? I would without a doubt.Would I like to have them on the other side of a courtroom and going against them? Absolutely Not.To the staff that handled my case, I greatly appreciate all of your work and the result speaks for itself. Thank you!read more

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more

They were all so friendly and I would recommend them to anyone.read more
