4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want an attorney for any reason, you need to work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal in their mind. 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 - most especially information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, each time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last second details or even be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for just about any crime, it's important to be able to convince the court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Real Estate Law In California / New Jersey?
Here Is My Situation, I Found A House In Nj It Is A Short Sale Been Listed For About 16 Months , So I Contacted The Agent In Nj And Advised Her That Im Interested So I Gave Her My Agents Info In Ca. So My Agent Wrote An Offer With A Ca Application. And Sent It To The Listing Agent . We Waited And Waited And Waited And The Listing Agent Never Returned Our Calls After That. However My Offer Was Submitted. I Have Gotten A Hold With The Selling Bank, And They Said That They Have Accepted My Offer... A Couple Of Days Ago I Called The Bank Ago And They Said That There Is Another Person That Wants To Make An Offer, And The Listing Agent Said That Im Not Interested In The Property Any More. (Not True) The Reason That I Think She Is Doing This So She Does Not Have To Share The Commission With My Agent . Now I Made The Offer On April 14Th And I Only Have Till June 30Th So I Can Get My 8000 Credit. And Now I Cant Make An Offer On Another House That Will Allow Me To Get The Credit. So I Have A Case Against Both Agent (Listing, And Mine) Note: My Agent Not Writing The Write Contract. And The Listing Agent For Not Returning My Calls, For Saying That Im Not Interested To Purchase The House And Her Take My Accepted Offer Off, And For Not Communicating With The Home Owner At All. And For Overwriting My Offer With A Different Buyer.
Your offer was not valid, it is not legal for a CA real estate agent to sell real estate in NJ, they have to have a NJ license to do that.
You can't get the tax credit no matter what you do, you had to be under contract by 4/30, obviously that did not happen.
Need To Know Min/Max Sentences For My Friend Arrested For Felony Dui And Felony Evasion Recently.?
My Friend Was Arrested Over The Weekend For Felony Dui (23152) And Felony Evasion (2800.2). Info On The Internet Has Been Difficult To String Together As To What His Minimum And Maximum Penalties Would Be For These Offenses. I Know That He Ran Several Stop Signs And Was Driving Fast (50Mph In Residential). He Ended Up Shot In The Chest With A Taser Briefly Hospitalized Before Being Booked. All In California.
Quick answers are not necessarily correct answers.
Veh C 23152 is not felony DUI. Felony DUI requires injury to somebody other than the driver. (Veh. Code sec. 23153.) If this is a 23152, and he has no prior in the past 10 years, the maximum sentence is 6 months in jail. The maximum sentence for felony DUI is three years in prison. (Veh C sec. 23554.)
The maximum sentence for felony evading, which is the statute you cited (Veh C sec. 2800.2) is three years. If this is a misdemeanor DUI and a felony evading, the maximum would be three years in prison and six months in jail. If it is a felony DUI, because of the way consecutive sentences are calculated in California, the total maximum sentence would be four years, four months, in prison.
Nothing even close to 15 years could be imposed in this case, and the more likely outcome would be probation with some time in county jail.
Is This Grounds For A Medical Malpractice Law Suit?
Last January I Went To See A Doctor Regarding Unwanted Weight Loss And Flu Like Symptoms. She Set Me Up For A Ct Scan Of My Abdomen And A Colonoscopy And Gave Me A Prescription. Her Office Called About A Week Later Saying The Doctor Wanted To See Me Asap So I Went Right In. She Told Me I Had A Tumor On My Bladder That Was About An Inch In Diameter And To Prepare My Life For Radiation And Chemotherapy And See A Urologist Immediately Which I Did. Both Tests Were Negative. I Returned To The Same Doctor And Told Her The Prescription She Had Given Me Caused Severe Diarrhea,Stomach Pain And More Weight Loss And I Didn'T Want To Use It Any Longer. She Argued With Me In The Same Manner A Two Year Old Child Might Argue With Their Parents And Insisted I Take The Medication Three Times A Day Everyday. I Later Learned The Prescription She Had Given Me Was A Laxative That Goes By The Brand Name Of Miralax. By This Time My Normal Weight Of 120 Pounds Had Dropped To 98 Pounds, None Of My Clothes Fit And I Was Wearing Adult Diapers 24/7. I'M A Retired Woman Without Insurance So All These Medical Expenses Were Mostly Out Of Pocket And It Became Necessary For Me To Purchase Medicaid Which Cost 35% Of My Retirement Income Which Literally Broke Me. I'M Still Having Stomach Aches And Loosing Weight But Have No Money Left To Pay Further Medical Costs. I Picked Up A Copy Of My Medical Records To See What This Ding-Dong Doc Had To Say And Found She Had Authored My Records To Say She Prescribed Two Does A Day Rather Than Two. I'D Been Fortunate Enough To Have Never Experienced Being Sick Before Meeting This Doctor. I'M At A Loss As What To Do Next. Your Answers Are Greatly Appreciated.
This is arguably malpractice -- wrong diagnosis. But you are unlikely to have enough money damages to make the case worthwhile for any attorney to take your cases. Pursuing a malpractice case would be a waste of your time.
You also said you had to purchase "Medicaid." Medicaid is a government program for low income persons. You can't purchase it. If you purchased some sort of medical insurance, perhaps it would help with your medical expenses. If you are retired, and over 65, you are presumably eligible for Medicare, which would also help with your medical expenses.
I suggest you find a source of information -- perhaps your county health department -- who could refer you to the assistance and services you need.
If U Cant Afford A Lawyer In A Child Support Case , Do U Have To Speak For Urself ? ?
The Judge Asked Me If I Would Like A Lawyer To Help Me With My Case I Told Her Yes But I Can'T Afford A Lawyer But Can The Court Give Me A Legal Aid And She Told Me No That I Either Have To Provide My Own Attorney Or Have To Speak For Myself
You are only entitled to free legal representation in criminal prosecutions, not civil cases such as child support. If you can't afford an attorney, ask the court clerk's office for a listing of free or low-cost legal services in the area for low-income people. Most counties throughout the U.S. have non-profit organizations that offer help to low-income litigants. Some courts also have free legal assistance for family law matters (note that they are generally for advice only & will NOT actually represent you in court). Try contacting the local bar association as well...they may be able to refer you to local attorneys who offer pro bono (free) or low cost services to people in your situation.
If you absolutely can't find an attorney you can afford, then yes you'll have to represent yourself.
Why Does The Standard Of Proof In Criminal Law Cases Set Such A High Bar In Comparison To Civil Law Cases?
Because the penalties are so much more severe in criminal cases than in civil cases.
For example, civil cases can never end with a penalty of imprisonment -- an extremely severe penalty.
@ All: Arizona Law: Perfectly Legal ... But Will It Work?
The First Good Critique I Have Seen From A Doubter Of The Arizona Law Comes From My Friend Bill West, Who Used To Be A Top Federal Immigration Official In Florida. Bill Agrees With Me That There Is No Valid Legal Objection To The New State Statute. His Reservation Is Practical: In Most Cases Involving Brief Police Stops To Investigate Criminal Activity That Is Not Particularly Serious, It Won'T Work; And In Most Cases Involving Arrests For Serious Offenses, It Is Superfluous.
As Usual, The Problem Is The Federal Government. As Bill Explains It To Me, He Doesn'T Think The Law Will Work Because:
The Immigration System – That Record System That Arizona Law Enforcement Officers Are Supposed To Rely Upon To &Quot;Verify&Quot; Illegal Status Under 8 Usc 1373(C) – Is Unreliable And Ineffective....Http://Libertypost.Org/Cgi-Bin/Readart.Cgi?Artnum=288448
i have some small reservations about the act, though nothing to do with the legality of it but more to be with the practical side of applying it. (and i'm just throwing them out there for you all to consider as 'what may happens')
firstly as you have already mentioned the whole thing rests on the support and information given to the people on the ground, and as already mentioned by you, that is lacking or at least not 100% reliable.
secondly, sooner or later a latino-american citizen or organisation will take this act to court on racial discrimination lines, (because plenty of Mexican-American citizens will be stopped again and again)
now to stop this happening there are two main 'work arounds'
1) you simply have the act but don't use it
2) you ensure that non latinos are also checked - while the vast majority of illegals in Arizona are Mexican/South American a small minority will be from Europe, Africa/West Indies, Asia etc.
which means in practise the people on the ground having to work to a quota system,
i.e for every 100 people you stop, 90 can be south of the border 'looking' - 7-8 can be black and 2-3 White/Asian etc.
(and they will base any quota figure on previous statistics of people deported from Arizona in any given year, what percentage came from south of the Border, Europe etc, etc, if 100% of all illegals returned in one year happen to be from south of the border then so be it, but the fact is it won't because there will always be a few who mess things up)
What this allows, is for the state to present proof in court that it this act is not anti-Mexican/Latino, because they will be have stats that will say, for example
in the first 3 months of the year, we stopped X amount of people of these we found 1000 illegals, of this figure 900 were from nations south of the border, 90 were from African Nations and the rest from Europe and Asia. (thus the state shows it is being even handed and the state can not be held legally responsible if the bulk of the illegals happen to be from Mexico)
So my reservation is, should Arizona adopt a quota system, how will the white citizens of the state feel when they are being stopped, purely so some cop can meet his quota?
(the act is about finding illegal immigrants, it doesn't specify that they have to be mexican, and several European nations have very similar acts that all end up on the quota system sooner or later)
