Welcome to our weekly Q&A session, where we address the most common questions asked by our clients. Today, we delve into the world of per diem attorneys and shed light on their ability to appear in-person on behalf of clients. This week’s question is: “Can a per diem attorney appear in-person?” Let’s find out!
Client Question: Can a per diem attorney appear in-person?
Answer: Yes, absolutely! One of the primary roles of a per diem attorney is to provide in-person representation for clients. When your regular attorney is unable to attend a court appearance due to scheduling conflicts, multiple appearances on the same day, or any other reason, a per diem attorney can step in and appear in-person on your behalf. They will handle the necessary tasks, such as arguing motions, presenting evidence, and representing your interests before the judge or magistrate.
Client Question: How does the process work when a per diem attorney appears in-person?
Answer: When you engage a per diem attorney for an in-person appearance, they will familiarize themselves with the details of your case, including relevant documents, evidence, and any specific instructions. They will arrive at the designated courthouse or location at the scheduled time, dressed professionally and fully prepared to represent you. The per diem attorney will navigate the court’s procedures, address any motions or arguments, and advocate for your interests throughout the proceedings.
Client Question: Are there any limitations to a per diem attorney’s in-person appearance?
Answer: While per diem attorneys are proficient in handling in-person appearances, it’s important to note that their representation is limited to the specific appearance or task assigned to them. They are not involved in the overall handling of your case and may not be able to provide ongoing representation beyond the assigned appearance. However, their expertise in appearing in court and their ability to focus solely on the assigned task can be valuable in ensuring effective representation.
Client Question: Can a per diem attorney handle high-stakes cases in-person?
Answer: Yes, per diem attorneys are experienced professionals who can handle a variety of cases, including high-stakes matters, in-person. While their role may primarily revolve around appearances, they possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and legal acumen to represent clients effectively in court.
