FAQs Frequently Asked Questions by Our Clients

If you meet with a lawyer for the first time about your case, and he makes promises and
guarantees to you about the outcome of your case, without investigating it and getting all
the information, it may create an unjustified expectation, is false advertising and is
unethical. Wisconsin lawyers cannot do that, and you are probably better off not hiring that lawyer.

Q: I just talked with a lawyer for the first time about my recent car crash. He guaranteed me that I would win the case, and then promised me how much I would get. It sounded good. Should I hire him?

A: You should be wary of any lawyer who makes promises and guarantees to you about the outcome of your case the very first time you meet him and before he does any investigation into the facts of your case. Wisconsin’s Rules of Professional Conduct for Attorneys forbids lawyers from making “a false or misleading communication about the lawyer or the lawyer’s services,” and defines a “false or misleading” communication as one which, among other things, “is likely to create an unjustified expectation about results the lawyer can achieve . . . .”
