What can I expect from my child's lawyer?

The lawyer works for your child, even if you are paying. So the lawyer will speak to your child and make decisions with your child.

You can ask the lawyer to let you know how the case is going. You can also ask questions. But the lawyer is not allowed to share information with you unless your child says the lawyer can.
