The Importance of a Good Interviewing Technique:

The objective of a first interview with a client is to get as much information from them in order to ascertain what their legal problem is, whether they have a case and how you can use your legal skills to solve their problem.

Having an interview with a lawyer can be extremely uncomfortable for a person, especially if they have not had any previous dealings with one.[1] The client may be reluctant to reveal everything to the lawyer, so it is their job to make the client feel at ease and be willing to tell their story.

Do you have any questions?

The interview ends with the dreaded question; "do you have any questions?" It's in that moment that your mind goes blank, you forget everything you wanted to ask and you sit there like a stunned mullet thinking do I ask a stupid question or is it better to say no?  And then after the interview you spend the next few hours stressing over the decision you made.
