The most important thing to bring with you is a list of questions you have for your attorney.
The more information you can obtain up-front, the better. Consider bringing documentation of income, expenses, assets, and debts, including such things as deeds to real estate, certificates of title to motor vehicles, business formation and operating documents, tax returns, financial statements, retirement, investment and bank account statements, credit card statements, and the like. If you do not have these documents just write down as much information as you can remember.
Depending on the case you may also consider writing down examples and specific instances of problems that need to be addressed, potential witnesses, and the contact information for the opposing party.
