Letter to Attorney/Lawyer Requesting Information on Case Status

It is always important to keep a tab on your legal cases pending in a court of law or any other legal forum, no matter the fact that you have appointed one or more lawyers for handling the case. Sometimes lawyers or their assisting officers may forget to update you on the case, this may lead to problematic situation under certain circumstances.

sample letter to attorney requesting update in your caseWrite a letter to your lawyer enquiring about the case status or you can even write an email regarding this or even you can call over phone directly to find out the status. Though it is advisable that you seek the information in writing by letter or email, so that the lawyer can provide the information after finding out the status and once given in writing he won't be able to deny it later.

(Attorney and Lawyer words are synonyms of each other. Though there is believed to be a small difference in their meaning i.e. Lawyer is a person who has passed the bar exam and when he gets the license to practice law he becomes an Attorney. No need to confuse yourself on this though.)

Following format could be used to write to your lawyer. Fill in the necessary details and modify it as may be necessary.
