4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a legal representative at all, you have to work closely together as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're going to reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should assist them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important in order to convince the court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

How Do You Find The Best Lawyer For Your Case?
Where Do You Look, Ask, Etc.?
That's the best question I've seen in a long time, but the answer isn't pleasant. There is no easy way, and the game is rigged to keep it that way.
There are no "consumer reports" on lawyers or doctors, and their professional associations fight to keep it that way. You must rely on word-of-mouth, ridiculous advertisements, and time spent doing things the hard way. You didn't mention civil or criminal, and there are some differences.
Lawyers are kind of like employees, and if you have the time and means, you should "interview" several of them to see if they pass your requirements. Many states have guidelines concerning this: a lawyer may be required to provide a free consultation (usually 1/2 hour) to meet with you and you tell him what you want and he tells you about himself.
If it's a criminal case, then you want to know specific things: is he qualified to appear in the court hearing your case, has he handled similar cases to yours, and did he win or lose. These are all public records, but they are somewhat hard to find and hard to understand by yourself. Your best bet may be to (get this) hire a lawyer or at least a paralegal to do this research for you. They have access to the databases containing the records, and they understand what they are looking for.
Finally, bear in mind that most lawyers are not completely corrupt. They usually will tell you if they feel it might not be a good fit, or they think someone else might have a better chance of helping you.
What Do I Say?I Have To Meet An Influential Lady Tomorrow To Help Find A Job,Or Internship At A Law Firm?
I Am Broke, And I Don'T Know If I Should Be Looking For A Job, A Part Time Job Or Just For An Internship Since Am A Law Student.What Do I Do?She'S A Former First Lady Of Ghana.
As a law student, your primary duty is to your education. So, you do not want to do any work which will infringe on the major time needed to study. The very, very best job for a law student is with a law firm. That way you can actually see what you are studying in real life.
As for the decision of the type of work. You may not be able to do justice in your education if you work full time. Unless the full time is only during the summer break. If you work for a law firm, you may want to work on a part-time or per hour basis. Offering to work part-time/per hour whenever the firm needed you, on their call, may be helpful to the law firm who needs someone but not on a regular basis.
While internships for law students are great, remember they pay nothing. So you need to decide if you can afford to work for free.
What you should say to the First Lady of Ghana is "I am honored to meet you". Do not expect her to be able to find you a job, she may only be able to get you an initial interview. Be grateful for whatever she offers. If she does get you in, remember the thank you note and that your work will reflect of your mentor. Good luck.
Can I Get Charged For Missing A Legal Consultation Appointment?
I Set Up A Consultation With An Attorney A Couple Days Ago Via Phone And Gave The Law Office My Name And Number, But Decided To Meet With A Different Attorney Instead. Is There Someway That They Can Charge Me (They Charge $165.00 An Hour For A Consultation) For Missing The Appointment Without Calling In Advance? All They Have Is My Name And Number (Which Means They Could Probably Get Other Information Pretty Easily). Or Am I Just Being Completely Paranoid?
Yes, you can get charged for missing a legal consultation. I am a paralegal and I've hunted down people with only their name. We have our ways, databases and legal subscriptions. If a good paralegal knows enough about your situation, and any other information such as who and what the consultation was about, they can get your address.
However, with that said, if they didn't ask for your full information, they probably don't charge for missed appointments. Not all law firms charge for the missed time. It takes too much effort to chase down non-clients.
I Have Been Going To My Dr. For 3 Years Now And Trust Her Completely. She Has Had Me On Seroquel And Wellbutrin For 2 Years And Just Decided To Up My Dosage Of Wellbutrin (Against My Wishes). I Didn'T Have A Reason To Raise The Dose, She Just Said She Wanted To. Well After 1 Week Of Taking The Higher Dose I Had A Seizure (Thank Goodness I Wasn&Quot;T Driving My Son Anywhere!!!) I Fell Off A Really High Chair And Broke My Nose, Lacerated It Resulting In Many Stitches And A Nasty (Soon To Be) Scar And Had A Concussion. When I Went In To See Her After This Event She Said She Knew She Shouldn'T Have Increased The Dose With My Past Medical History Of Bulima (I Guess The Pdr Says Not To Give To Bulima Patients) And She Said That She Also Has Had Another Pt. Have A Seizure At The Higher Dose Too. And The Pdr Says That The Higher Dose Has A High Risk Of Seziures. Should I Sue? I'Ve Racked Up A Lot Of Bills, Had To Drop Out Of School B/C Of The Concussion And Missed 1 Month Of Work.
I'm sorry you had to go through this. Medical malpractice is a negligence issue. However, instead of holding the doctor to an "ordinary reasonable person" standard, we hold them to the standard of the average member of the local medical community, or in the case of a specialist, to the National Standard.
Where it gets tricky is that you MUST present expert testimony to prove a medical malpractice case. Your expert must be knowledgeable about psych meds, must say that your doctor made a choice that was unreasonable, and that didn't meet the medical standard for whatever level your doctor is to be held to.
It's sometimes very difficult to find a doctor who is willing to testify against another doctor, and it can get very expensive. Look in the yellow pages for an attorney who handles med mal, and see if they will give you a no-charge consultation. If you have a good case, they may take it on contingency. Otherwise, this is going to get expensive for you.
Good luck. Namaste.
EDIT: thumbs down? This is straight out of my Torts text - what more do you people want?!?
How Can I Get A Retainer Fee Waived?
I Have Tried Low Cost Legal Help With No Success. I Can Get A Different Lawyer, But Can'T Afford One Until I Can Get My Job Reinstated. Please Help!!!
Find a hungrier lawyer who's willing to work on contingency. If your case prospects suck, I don't see that happening.
Lawyers need to eat too.
A Couple Questions For Good Lawyers.?
What Are The Qualities Of The Best Lawyer Ever Born (Hypothetically)?
Does A Person Have To Get Straight A'S, Go To Harvard, And Then Harvard Law School To Become A Great Lawyer?
Why Are Lawyers Portrayed Negatively In Parts Of Our Society?
A good lawyer will question everything. He or she can not make assumptions unless based on irrefutable fact. A good lawyer always seeks plausible alternative answers, not just the most obvious ones.
You do not have to go to Harvard, get straight As or graduate from Harvard Law School to be a great lawyer.
Lawyers are portrayed negatively because of a false perception that they price gouge their clients, overcharge them for work that could be done more cheaply by paralegals. They are also held in low esteem because they will represent clients who are sometimes shunned, rejected or cast out by society as rapists, killers and Ponzi scheme operators. They are also falsely perceived by ill-informed people as being willing to say or do anything for a price. Hence the old joke: What the difference between a prostitute and a lawyer? " There are some things a prostitute will not do for money."
