4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need a legal professional at all, you have to work closely together to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important approaches to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - particularly information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, each and every time. In fact, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any sort of crime, it's important to be able to prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

In California, Can The Family Law Court Make A Parent Take A Pee Test? If Yes, Do You Know The Law That States?
The court does not physically force you to take a urine test. But in California, like most states, family law courts handle child custody cases and divorce settlements. If you do not follow the directives of the court, you likely lose your case.
So, they can direct you to take the test. If you refuse, there will be consequences.
While I can't state the law, I have much experience with family court matters and urine tests.

I Need To Find An Attorney That Handles Death Cases Due To Negligence Of A Nursing Home In The State Of Tennessee. Can Someone Guide Me
In lawyer-speak, you have a personal injury case resulting in "wrongful death." I don't live in Tennessee, so I can't give you any specific names, but there are three ways to find some lawyers to interview. (And let me emphasize that you should be interviewing them first, not just hiring one). In any event, do not take the recommendations of total strangers that you find on Yahoo Answers.
The best recommendation is from either another client or another lawyer. So, if you have a lawyer of any kind, maybe when you bought a house or had a will drawn up, go to him or her and ask for someone who can handle a negligence case. If not, ask your friends and family if they know a lawyer and can get you a recommendation.
The second way to get a name is to go to the bar association in the county where you live or where the claim is. For example, you can get connected with a qualified lawyer in Knoxville, through the Knoxville Bar Association. http://www.knoxbar.org/ Many other counties have something similar.
Your third choice is to go to Martindale-Hubble, which has been around for a zillion years and which lists almost every lawyer there is. At their Web site, you can find lawyers in your area by selecting the "Practice Area" of Personal Injury, and then the sub-category of Wrongful Death. But here is the key: look for lawyers that are rated either AV or BV. The A and B ratings are formed from a combination of how experienced they are and how well regarded they are in the bar. It's not just like school, where A's are always better than B's, because a B lawyer may be just as good as an A, but younger. Either one is excellent, and I am sure you will find several names that way. The V part of the rating means that the lawyer is known to act responsibly with client funds. So, you want either A or B, plus V. http://www.martindale.com/
Once you have a couple of names, go and talk with the lawyers to see if you have a good case, to see what evidence you and he/she might have to get, and to discuss fees. You can pay a lawyer by the hour, but in these cases, most lawyers work on a "contingency" basis, which means that they get a percentage of whatever amount you win in settlement or at trial. You pay nothing if you lose, but you pay a lot if you win. But despite what they tell you, not all lawyers charge the same contingency fee. A lot can depend on how much it will cost to bring this case. Will they have to travel outside the area? Will they have to hire experts (usually, the answer is yes to that one? Was the person in the home so old that it will be difficult to prove he or she would not have lived if there was no negligence? Etc., etc. Fees can be discussed and negotiated. So talk with a couple of lawyers before you commit to any one of them. Do NOT sign an representation agreement until you are satisfied.
Oh, and just to state the obvious: the fee is only part of the consideration. You will have to work closely with this person for months or years. So it is more important to feel that you are in good hands with someone you can trust and deal with. It may be worth agreeing to a larger fee for someone you are sure will do a good job.
Good luck, and I hope this helps.
Need Help/Advice On Settling Bodily Injury Claims?
My Family Was In An Accident. My Husband Was Driving In The Rain And Another Car Hydroplaned And Hit Us. The Other Carrier Accepted Full Responsibility And My Car Has Been Paid For. However, My Husband Hit His Head And Had Neck Injury As Well As Bruises On His Shoulder And Hip Where The Door Came In On Him. My Daughter Was In The Backseat And Was Flung Against The Door Causing Injury To Her Right Shoulder. Both Of Them Treated At E.R. And When The Pain Didn'T Subside They Went To A Chiropractor. My Husband Is Doing Better But My Daughter'S Shoulder Continued To Hurt. She Went To An Ortho Who Diagnosed Her With A Scapular Strain. She Is Going Through Physical Therapy. I Had A Small Cut To My Elbow And Neck Pain. I Treated At E.R. And Then Chiropractor. I Am Done Treating. The Adjuster Has Been Calling Me. My Question Is, Should I Go Ahead And Settle My Bi Claim Or Wait Until My Family Is Done Treating? Also, What Should We Be Looking For In Terms Of Settlement? I Do Not Want To Be Greedy, But I Also Want To Get What Is Normal For These Injuries. Does It Have Something To Do With The Amount Of Medicals? Any Other Factors?
You're not going to be looking at big bucks, without permanent injuries. Additionally, exactly WHAT you are entitled to, is going to depend a WAY LOT on what state you are in. In a no fault state, for example, you can only collect for minor injuries (sounds like that's what everyone has, just muscle soreness, and maybe a few stitches for you) from your own policy.
You probably need to call your agent, and ask what the BI laws are in your state.
There's no average, btw. There's no "three times medical bills" rule. That's a myth. Many states partially or totally discount chiropractor bills, so you can't include them with medical bills, anyway. If there's no scarring, and no stitches, your cut is worth whatever the doctor charged to stick a bandaid on it.
The biggest factors are your state, the policy limits, and your ACTUAL INJURIES.
Help With Texas Labor Laws?
If A Employee Is A Part Time Or Prn Employee And Has A Regular Schedule, Then The Supervisor Schedules Them To Work On A Day Outside Their Normal Schedule And Doesnt Ask Them For Approval First, Can They Be Repremanded For Not Working The Extra Day? What Labor Law Does It Fall Under And Where Can I Find It?
laws are not written that say what is legal, laws are written to say what is NOT legal...
there is no where to find this particular information written in a law or regulation...
in every state the employer sets the schedule, and may change it at any time unless there is a contract in place that specifically states otherwise....
schedule changes and mandatory overtime are legal, the employees approval is not required....
the employee can be disciplined, they could, legally, be fired....
is this the best way to run a business? NO
is it legal? YES
