4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want an attorney for any excuse, you must work closely together to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss last minute details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea 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 prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Charged With Felony, Not Yet Convicted.?
So Long Story Short I Got Charged With A Felony..Iv Never Really Been In Trouble Except For A Seat Belt Ticket. What Happened Was I Was At This Semi Abandoned House At A Party There And I Drank Waaay Too Much, Like Almost A 5Th. People At This Party Were Pretty Much Destroying The Place And **** And Someone Threw Some Dvd'S Out Of A Window Into The Snow, When I Left I Guess I Must Have Saw Them Outside And Took Like 20 Of Them. I Think Someone Helped Me Pick Them Up Too. I Know This Was An Absolutely Wrong Thing To Do And Feel Like A Complete Idiot But As Much As The Law Says I Deserve To Be Charged With A Felony I Really Dont Think That They Courts Should. I Am Going To Be Completely Fuuucked For The Rest Of My Life! Im Only 22 And Took One Year Of College And Was Going To Go Back This Fall But Someone Was Telling Me If Your An Fellon You Cannot Get Financial Aid Or Student Loans, This Is Awful! Im Also An Avid Hunter And So Is My Family, So I'Ll Never Be Able To Go Rifle Hunting Again Or Go To My Grandpas And Other Family'S Houses Because They All Own Guns. This Sucks So Bad, But I Guess I Should Have Thought About That First Right? Oh Well, I Hope I Can Get This Dropped Down To A Misdemeanor Or Somehting..I Would Take Absolutely Anything Besides A Felony! What Do You Think My Changes At That Are? Poor Or What?
A felony charge is ridiculous for that. Hire a criminal lawyer. He/she should be able to at least have the charge dropped down to a misdemeanor. That's how the game is played. They overcharge you and then get you to plead guilty to a lesser charge so they can avoid a trial. You might try calling the DA yourself and talking to him but don't admit to theft.
Having said that, you might want do do some web surfing first and see what constitutes felony theft in the state where you live. It's usually based on the value of the stolen items. Twenty used CDs is worth what? $150? I think there's a good chance that it's not even a felony where you live. If so then it was a bogus charge. I live in Alaska where the stolen property must be worth at least $500 for it to be a felony.
I think your chances might be very good. They probably overcharged you to force you get a lawyer ($$$$) which is punishment enough but your lawyer may be able to get the charges dropped altogether. The CDs were thrown out a window into the snow. They were obviously discarded and you salvaged a few.
ADDENDUM: I just checked Michigan laws. Misdemeanor theft goes up to $1000. Check out the link below. The state has obviously overcharged you. There's no way they could convict you of a felony even if you walked out of someone's house with all those items if they were brand new. From what you've told us the total value of the property is probably less than $200 which puts it into a lower class of misdemeanor in Michigan. And that only applies if it's actually theft.

But 2 Consenting Adults Of Sound Mind And Of Their Own Free Will Can Not Engage In Sex For Financial Gain
Prostitution is not legal in Carson City. It is illegal in all three of Nevada's major cities (Las Vegas, Reno and Carson City). It is legal in most other countries in Nevada at this time.
You are correct in saying that other activities that might be sexually stimulating are legal, although this is a rather broad concept when you think about it (there's a huge amount of stuff that could be sexually stimulating in some way, shape, or form). Material solely delivered through "the press" is also protected under the first amendment.
It's basically the way the USA had drawn the line on morality vs people's freedom. Some countries say that prostitution is fine and you can do it without any problems, others do not. Some ban pornography as well. Basically it depends, like with most issues, where you draw the line.
That said, I think the USA's position on prostitution is overly restrictive and just gives criminals control of the whole thing. We know from experience in other countries that legalising it usually gives good results- e.g. in Australia, most states have decriminalised it and several states there have converted it to a legal, regulated business that one can be officially licensed to carry out, and this hasn't caused those states to descend into hotbeds of sin. It hasn't entirely eliminated illegal prostitution but it has reduced it substantially.

Contact the local bar association and get the numbers and names from them of specialists in your area. Don't be afraid to ask for references, or success rates either.

What state are you in? Is it your first offense? In my state they have a lawyer referral service. It's lawyers who will take your case for reduced fees. Look in to that. When I was turned down for a public defender for making too much money, they automatically gave me the phone number for the lawyer re feral service.
What Are Approximate $ Damages For Personal Injuries To A 4Y/O Resulting In Surgery To Repair Labia Minora?
While Swimming At A Pool At A Casino Rv Park My 4 Y/O Stepped On A Drainage Cap That Wasn'T Screwed Down, 1 Leg Fell Into The Hole While She Straddled The Cap Resulting In Damages To The Labia Minora, Was Transported To Another Hospital For Surgery That Night To Repair Damages. There Doesn'T Appear To Be Any Major Damage To Ureathra At This Time. I Don'T Really Want To Consult An Attorney, But I Do Want A Fair Settlement & All Expenses For My Child. What Should I Do?
THe owners of the park should be responsible for all medical costs incurred. If you want anything beyond that (which I think you're entitled to- imagining the emotional damage to your daughter now and repercussively in several years from now), you'll need an attorney, but most will offer first consultations for free, to determine if you have a case or not. Some will work on a contigency basis which means you don't pay them until your case is settled.
