4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you want a lawyer for any excuse, you must work closely together to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - especially information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, each time. In reality, because you may need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important in order to convince the legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Are Legal Aid Lawyers Any Good?
I Have To Get A Legal Aid Lawyer For A Custody Battle. Are They Still As Good As A Normal Lawyer Where You Pay Them Or Do They Not Care As Much?
All the most talented lawyers start somewhere and legal aid work is their bread and butter when starting out. Saying this some lawyers lack talent on legal aid but if it's a custody battle - it is not criminal. Civil legal aid lawyers are usually 'better" than criminal ones. It's about luck I'm afraid. Some private lawyers have to do a bit of legal aid work on the side as a rule, so you may get an outstanding one.
Unfortunately they have a bad reputation which they usually don't deserve. I sincerely hope you get one of the better ones - but don't worry. A lawyer is a lawyer.
What Is A Fair Amount For A Lawyer To Charge For A 45 Minute Consultation?
I Went To A Lawyer Today For A Consultation And Had To Give A $1000.00 Retainer Up Front. The Receptionist Told Me That It Is Put In A Trust And If I Decide Not To Have The Lawyer Represent Me Then I Would Get Money Back. Okay I Understood That. So At The End Of The Consultation I Am Told That The 45 Minutes He Talked To Me Cost The $1000.00. Wtf! The Best Part Is That The Guy Told Me Stories About Cases He Represented In The Past So It Wasn'T As Though The Whole 45 Minutes Was About Me. Shouldn'T I Pissed? If I Had Known That A Consultation Would Cost $1000 Then I Would Have Known That His Fees In General Would Be Way Too Expensive And I Wouldn'T Have Pursued It In The First Place. Anyone Out There Have An Opinion? Should I Go Back Tomorrow And Have It Out With His Assistant Who Gave Me Wrong Information On The Phone? Thanks For Your Input.
Lawyers charge what the market will bear. When they asked for the retainer, you should have asked 'what is your hourly rate?' That's extremely high, but legal.
What Impact Has Technology Had On Legal Research?
What Impact Has Modern Technology Such As Computers, The Internet, Email And Online Databases Had On The Paralegal Profession? In Your Opinion, Have These Technological Advances Been Positive Or Negative? What Tasks Do Paralegals Perform Using Computers? What Are The Advantages Of Computer Assisted Legal Research (Calr) Over Traditional Methods (Going To A Law Library To Locate Cases And Statutes In Books And Other Printed Materials, Going To The Courthouse To File Pleadings In Person Rather Than Filing Them Electronically, Etc.)?
Huge leap in efficiency.
Research that used to take hours or days to do using books and indexes can now be done in minutes from any computer terminal. And with rapid updating, you can have new cases that came out days or weeks ago, rather than waiting months for pocket-parts.
Electronic filing saves time and gas. And electronic copies allow for broader distribution and more permanent records without wasting paper.
Those are just a few of the many benefits. The only downside is that, like all forms of automation, it cuts down on human interaction. Rather than hanging out in the law library and at least seeing other people, we now sit behind computer screens.
But, for the benefits gained, our lack of social interaction in other contexts is no excuse.
Seeking A Workers Comp / Labor Attorney?
In Las Vegas? Clark County.
In all 50 states, there is no reason to hire a workers compensation attorney unless:
1. you were denied workers compensation and you think it should have been approved
2. you were approved for workers comp but you aren't getting the treatment you think you should be.
The amount you get for workers comp is based on a formula based on your injury and permanent disability rating. You don't get extra money for paying an attorney, that comes out of you pocket.

How Much Do You Think A Legal Assistant/Paralegal/Office Manager Should Be Making On A One Attorney Law Firm? Experience Of 7 Years.?
Working in a oneman firm is the long slow death by ducks. You work all the over time, all the jobs, you never can count on a day off or a vacation. I would want to know what he billed last 3 years and then I would ask for about 20%.
Traveling To Bermuda With A Felony Charge?
This Is Actually For A Relative Of Mine. He Was Curious If You Are Able To Travel To Bermuda With A Felony Charge, He Is On Probation But He Is Only Planning A Trip. Please Only Respond If You'Ve Had Experience With This Situation. We Are Working On Calling Multiple Places Right Now, But Would Like To Know Others Experiences With This Situation. I Know You Can Be Denied Into Canada For Felonies, But I Was Not Sure If Bermuda Had The Same Policies Over Immigration And Border Control. Please Let Me Know, That Would Be Really Great. I Look Forward To Hearing All Your Great Answers.
Also Kind Of Question Just For Me And Anybody Else Searching These Questions!
Are You Allowed To Enter Bermuda With A Old Warrant For Your Arrest, Around 5 Years Old?
We do not use the term "felony change" here in Canada, we refer to those types of offenses as "indictable offenses", therefore I assume you are writing from the US. I was employed in the legal field here in Canada for forty years. You did not specify whether your friend intended to travel by air or by cruise ship. The question about the old warrant is a slightly different legal conundrum. I will attempt to answer both matters together. If a person is taking an aircraft from mainland USA to Bermuda, the pre-screening process at the airport verifies each passenger's status with regard to legal matters/criminal records etc. All names are processed through police computers to determine whether or not if the airline will allow "Mr. X", or, any undesirable passengers will be boarding.
I can assure you that both the felony conviction and the very recent (not "old") warrant from a mere five years ago will both surface...meaning...the airport security will know in advance about both criminal convictions (you did not specify whether or not the "old warrant" was as a result of a minor criminal charge or a small claims court warrant for deliberately failing to attend court on a court date that the person was personally served and yet chose to ignore etc.) no matter what generated the warrant, the airport security staff will view it as "a criminal matter" even though it may have only been a minor criminal offense such as shop lifting at 17 years of age or causing a disturbance 5 years ago etc. Each of the two matters will perk their interest. The question really boils down to; will they allow your friend to board for a short trip to Bermuda (in spite of the criminal record) or not? I cannot answer that. If airport security could verify that the person is definitely only going on a four-day trip and is likely to return to the US then may allow the person to fly (but they will "flag his name") and will most likely monitor him more closely by, as an example, conducting a more detailed baggage search/interview upon his return. They do have some discretion however. Cruise line security is similar. All cruise ship passengers must register in advance and the list of passengers is referred to legally as "the manifest". Again, every name is run through police computers before embarkation and in the case of a "loop cruises" where you depart from New York, head straight to Bermuda and sail right back to New York 7 days later, they may use their discretion to allow a person with a felony conviction to board and may also allow the person with the "alive-and-well" recent outstanding warrant to board a looped cruise or, in the alternative, the person with the outstanding may be arrested at the port of New York and they will then be sent back, in custody, to the jurisdiction which issued the warrant or, the authorities may use some discretion and allow/permit the person to board
the cruise ship and make the arrest after the person disembarks back in New York 7 days later by flagging his/her name.
