4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want an attorney at all, you should work closely with them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal to them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, each and every time. In reality, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

What Is The Best Way To Become A Criminal Defense Attorney?
I Know You Can Get Into Law School Regardless Of What Your Major Is In College, But What Do You Think Is The Best Way To Become A Criminal Defense Attorney Is? If There Are Any Out There, Can You Please Explain To Me How You Did It. Also, What Are Some Skills You Must Have To Do This Job? Thanks.
Most entry level jobs in criminal defense are in the public sector with the state and municipal public defenders offices and legal aid offices. Aside from top grades from a top law school which are a plus for any entry level lawyer job, evidence of dedication to public service is helpful. That means you will probably have to close doors to certain private sector jobs like an associate position in a mid-sized or big law firm since you will be doing summer clinical externships offered by public sector employers like the AG's office or legal defense and education funds instead of a summer associateship.
You can also take legal clinics during the regular school year for class credit as they generally service people who cannot otherwise afford legal representation. That can be a good place to pick up practical skills and network with other attorneys in public interest law. If you do enough hours in clinics and externships you will be given an Archibald Murray public service award when you graduate from law school which will help.
It also helps if you you have a good relationship with your clinic professors as many of them have connections with public sector employers including the public defenders office and legal aid.
You really have to have a thick skin, be a self motivated, and independent minded to do well in these positions. They are not for the meek or faint of heart. Other than those personality traits you need the same skills as any litigator, strong writing and oral argument skills and a strong knowledge of procedural rules, rules of evidence and of course criminal law.

Desperate Need Of Legal Advice For My Fiance.?
This May Sound Like A Story Line Right Out Of Jerry Springer. However, Take Me Seriously, For It Is Real Life, My Life. My Fiance And I Have A Two Year Old Son And Are Expecting One On The Way, I Am Four Months Along. During The Summer Of '07, He Cheated On Me. I Took Him Back And Do Not Regret The Decision.
The Girl He Was Intimate With A Few Times Claimed She Was On The Depo Birth Control Shot. Turns Out She'S 6 Months Pregnant. She Says The Only Way He Can See The Baby Is By Marrying Her(She'S Illegall Citizen And Wants Her Papers) . I Have Encouraged My Husband That If The Child Turns Out To Be His After Taking The Paternity Test, To Pursue Joint Or Seek Visitation Rights.
How Does He Go About Pursuing A Pat Test, Child Support, And Visit Rights. She'S In Pa, We In Ny. Is There A Way, If The Baby Is His, That He Can See The Infant, Via Visitation Rights, Even Though Different States? He Doesn'T Want Anything To Do With Her. However, The Baby Needs A Father. Help.
Wellll what a mess.
For starters, I take a dim view of blackmailers. That is precisely what she is doing..blackmailing him.
He has options as long as he has a backbone. He can report her illegal status and do his damndest to get her deported before the child is born. He can also wait till after the child is born, demand DNA tests and then report her illegal status. Baby stays in the U.S. because it will be a U.S. citizen and he can take custody of it. He needs to call ICE asap.
He can't persue anything till parentage is established. If she tries to file for welfare, then welfare can demand the paternity tests. She cannot just blatantly deny him visitation. Although it most likely will take an attorney to force her to comply with visitation through a court order. If he goes that route, he could just petition for full custody. However, YOU have to be willing to also take care of that child. Is he 100% positive this baby is his? Many a man has been conned into false fatherhood. So be careful on that part.
In case you are unaware of this....it is illegal to marry someone just to gain citizenship or permenent residency status.
Check with your local laws about recording her phone conversations. Your finace may record her conversations as long as there isno one else involved in the conversations. If she aaaadmits to her scheme...play it back for her, then advise her the recording will be turned over to the authorities. Not only for the blackmail attempts, but also trying to coerse him into a criminal activity...ie: illegal marriage.
I would not dally on this issue. He needs to take a proactive position to back off her blatant attempts of further criminal behavior. Of which he does NOT NEED to be a party to.
Good luck on this....:)
Need Legal Advice About Va Divorce Laws.?
Married For 19 Months. Moved Into Spouses Home From A Previous Marriage. No Children. Spouse Was Disabled Before The Marriage And Receiving Disability. Since The Separation, Spouse Has Moved And Is Now Renting A Home. Now A Ruling By A Judge Has Ordered Me To Pay Alimony. I Was Told This Could Be For Life. My Lawyers Advice Is To Appeal This. Could This Judge Be Off His Rocker Or In Cahoots With My Ex?
So this is your question? "Could this judge be off his rocker or in cahoots with my ex?" This is "legal advice" about divorce laws?
I guess the answer is yes. Anything is possible.
But if you need legal advice why not ask the person you pay for it, the lawyer.
(However on the information cited the Judge's ruling is not so farfetched as to be impossible. If you were assisting in supporting your husband during the marriage you may have a continuing obligation.)
It seems more likely that you should just follow your attorney's advice, otherwise is't more likely that you are "off your rocker"...you seriously think this is legal advice and that YA can do better tam your lawyer??

Interview more than one attorney who specializes in Employment Law. As part of that process tell them the facts of your situation and you'll be able to choose who you think can do the best job in representing you...also, by interviewing more than one you get the advantage of having a number of lawyers advise you if you have a good case or if you do not have a good case.
