    Default Attorney Wants Me to Come into His Office

    I could just be panicking,
    I called my attorney today just to find out if he received some paper work I emailed and to find out if at all possible how my case was going. The receptionist put me on hold and came back saying my attorney would like me to come in and talk with him. So I set up a date and time.

    My question to you all, is this a bad sign that something is wrong? I only wanted an update on my case and instead of my attorney talking to me over the phone he wants me to come in to talk. It has only been 3 months since I filled the claim.

    I do understand cases like this take time and not sure if this is normal after only three months. My thinking is this is something attorneys do by having there clients come in from time to time for updates.

    Thank you

    The lawyer probably needs to go over some aspect of the case with you. Possibly to ask you some questions to understand the facts better. I would not be concerned about it.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).

    You should've asked the receptionist, it's impossible to guess what's going on without knowing the details of your case.
