Consider again the case of Missy Benevidez. You are a LNC working for an attorney who is considering representation of Missy Benevidez in a claim against ABC Pharmaceuticals. Ms. Benevidez, age 25, has just discovered that she has cervical cancer, which she believes is linked to her mother’s ingestion of DES while she was pregnant with Missy. ABC Pharmaceuticals is the company that produced the DES prescribed by Missy’s mother’s physician 25 years ago. Research has shown that daughters of women who have taken DES during pregnancy have a high risk of contracting cervical cancer in their early 20’s.
Your supervising attorney has asked you to conduct the initial client interview of Ms. Benevidez. Describe the setting you think would be best for the interview and prepare questions for each stage of the initial client interview. Include in your list at least 2-3 background questions, 5 pre-event questions, 5 event questions, and 2-3 post-event questions.
