4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a lawyer for any excuse, you have to work closely along with them as a way to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important methods 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 likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most importantly information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they need to enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each time. In fact, because you may want to discuss last second details or be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Please Help!! Real Estate, Probate, And Attorney Question?
I Live In California. My Grandmother Passed Away 20 Years Ago In 1992. 6 Years Ago My Jerk Uncle Decided To Sue My Mom For My Grandmother'S House. My Mom Passed Away Last Year. I'M An Only Child, And Have To Keep Going To Probate Court To Represent My Dead Mother On Her Behalf.
Now Please Let Me Clarify. The House, Purchased By My Grandparents Was A Land Sale Contract, When Means They (Now I) Will Never Get Title To It Until It Is Completely Paid Off. They Bought It In1962, It Cost $19,000, Mortgage Payments Are Low I Admit, But I Still Owe The Mortgage Co. $8,000. No, There Is No 2Nd Mortgage I Don'T Know About, I'Ve Contacted The Mortgage Company And They Say It'S Not Paid Off Due To &Quot;Impounds&Quot; (Taxes, Insurance, Etc.). Now, I'M Not A Stupid Woman, I'Ve Done The Research, I'M A Pre-Law Student, And According To The Math, The House Should Have Been Paid Off In 1995. Several Attorneys Told My Mom And I That They Wouldn'T Take The Probate Case Against My Uncle, But Would Be More Than Happy To Sue The Mortgage Company, Get The Title In Her Name, The House Paid Off, And Some Money Back, All Without Costing Her A Dime. She Declined, Saying That She Didn'T Want To &Quot;Rock The Boat&Quot; And &Quot;The Mortgage Company Has Been Good With Us.&Quot; Now That She'S Not Here I Must Make This Decision On My Own, And I Plan To Sue Them. I'Ve Nothing Left To Lose.
Back To My Uncle. My Grandmother, 15 Years Before Her Death, Wrote And Had Notarized A Request For Joint Tenancy Agreement, Leaving The House To Only Her And My Mother. In The State Of Ca, This Is Supposed To Be Stronger Than A Will, As Joint Tenancy Is Created In Order To Avoid Probate. Second, My Uncle Has Never Lived In The House, Nor Contributed Financially At All - My Mother And I (Now Just I) Have Paid Everything In Regards To This House, Which I Have Proven To The Court System Through My Bank Statements,Receipts, Mortgage And Ins. Payments, Etc). My Mother And I Have Lived Here My Entire Life (I'M 31) And Since She Was 8 (She Passed Last Year At Age 56).
I Think The Problem Is Is That He Has Had An Attorney Since 2006, And My Mom, Nor I, Could Afford One. Otherwise I Have A Feeling This Convoluted Case Would Be Thrown Out.
Two Weeks Ago, My Uncle'S Attorney Sent A Letter That Placed An Involuntary Lien Against The House. All Documents From His Attorney Still Come Addressed To My Mom, Even Though They Know That She'S Gone. How Can I Stop This Involuntary Lien? Please Help Me! Please.
Also, I'Ve Submitted The Request For Joint Tenancy Into The Probate Court, But It Seems To Have Had No Effect At All. Please Help, And Thank You In Advance.
The joint tenancy does not replace a will and not does void probate. Your uncle is entitled to a portion of his mothers estate, that is clear. You can't remove the lien until he withdraws his claim to his portion of the property or a judge rules on it. A judge is NOT going to award you 100% of the proprety, that would violate the law.
Your mothers estate also has to probate before you have any claim.

Do Attorneys/Lawyers Hire Someone With A Felony Record?
I Have A Felony On My Record From 5 Years Ago That'S Not Violent Or Drug-Related. I'M Good At Office Work So I Applied To Attorneys For Office Positions. I Thought They May Be More Open-Minded To Giving Someone A Second Chance And They Deal With People In Need Of Legal Help And/Or Criminals All The Time So They Wouldn'T Look Down At The Person As Much As Someone Else Might. They'Re Not Law Firms, Just General Practice Attorneys. Does Anyone Know If Lawyers/Attorneys Will Hire Someone With A Felony Record?
Attorneys are like any other employer. I look at the whole person and I would not automatically disqualify someone simply because they had a felony. It would depend on the type of felony, how long ago it occurred and what you have done with you life since then.
If you are qualified and honest about your past and are qualified, you might get the job. If you try to hide it from me, don't count on getting the job.
Hello, My Mom And Me Have Been Having Trouble With Our Landlord. I Was Wondering If Certain Things The Landlord Was Doing Was Legal. We Have Been Renting This House For 12 Years. We Have Had Many Problems With The House Such As Mold In The Basement, Flooding, Leaking Ceilings, Bug Problems, Broken Central Air, And Issues With Neighbors And A Business On The Property. Some Of These Problems We Have Told The Landlord About, And Some We Haven'T. Some Issues Have Been Fixed, But Most Haven'T.
The Nearby Business Recently Got In Trouble With The City And The Cops. I Think They Got In Trouble Because They Weren'T Licensed. My Sister'S Fiance Was The Person Who Notified The City About Them. After The Business And Landlord Got In Trouble, The Landlord Seemed To Want To Double Our Rent. I Don'T Know If He Will Or Not For Certain Though. The Business Owner Was Also Blaming My Mom And Harassing Her One Day.
I Was Just Wondering If There Is Any Legal Action We Could Take, Or If We Should Even Take Legal Action. I Don'T Know What Kind Of Agreement Or Lease We Have With The Landlord. My Mom Signs Some Papers Once Every Year; I Don'T Know The Details About Those Papers Though. I Also Have To Mention That My Mom Is Occasionally Late On Rent. She Pays The Rent Every Month, But She Is Not Consistent With When She Pays It. Sometimes She Pays At The Beginning Of The Month, And Sometimes At The End.
It Would Be Hard For Us To Move Because Most Other Places Are Too Expensive For Us.
there are procedures to try to force repairs, failure to report issues makes you liable for further damage...in most areas, landlord can increase your rent as much as they want each time the lease expires
WHY ARE YOU RENTING A HOUSE IF IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE? a 1 bedroom apartment in good condition would be better...or 2 bedroom if there are too many kids for a 1 bedroom (yes parent/child can share a bedroom, even mom/son). brothers/sisters can share a bedroom....occupancy limits may allow 6 or more in 2 bedrroms
any child at least 14 should be working to help pay for something better.
JUST TO PROVE YOU CAN'T GET BASIC LEGAL ADVICE HERE...YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN WRONG INFO ABOUT THE AC
I actually researched this..ACs that come with the house are landlord responsibility...unless the lease is ending and notice is given prior that the AC will no longer be maintained.
Legal Advice For A Dog Attack?
Last Week I Visited A Friend And Her Boyfriends Dog Was In Front Of Her Door, As I Tried To Walk To The Front Door The Dog Went Behind Me And Bit My Leg. The Owner Of The Dog Is The Boyfriend (Who Witness The Attack & Said &Quot;Oh Well, Not My Problem&Quot;) But My Ex Friend Said She Would Take Full Responsibility For The Attack (At The Time-- And I Also Have This Conversation Via Text Messages). Needless To Say Now She Is Going Back On Her Word. Do I Have The Right To Take Her To Small Claims Court? Not Only Do I Not Have Medical Insurance And Was Admitted To Emergency, Paid Over $100 In Medication, The Dog Ruined A Brand New Pair Of Expensive Pants, Nightmares Of Random Animals Biting Me In The Same Location And The Fear Of Pit Bulls And Other Dogs That Customers Bring To My Current Place Of Employment.
Thanks For The Help.
Well, in this awesome litigious country, you can take people to small claims court for ANYTHING.
But you are asking if you have a case or not. You do.
My suggestion is this: write a demand letter to your friend AND HER BOYFRIEND, asking them for reimbursement for your medical costs and medications. Inform them kindly in this letter that if they refuse, you will be forced to proceed with legal actions - in which you will sue for not only your medical bills, but for pain and suffering as well.
If that doesnt light a fire under their posteriors, then file a small claims action against them.
If You Go To A Great Law School(Top 10 In The Country),What Are The Chances You Will Get Into A Big Law Firm?
If You Attend One Of The Best Law Schools In The Country(Harvard,Stanford Columbia,Etc.)Is It A Good Chance You Would Get A Job At A Top Law Firm?
Take a look at lawschooltransparency.com. That'll give you a good idea about the school's job placement.
The odds aren't bad right now. Anywhere from 30-60% get into biglaw at most top schools. The better ones place more, of course. If you go to Stanford or Yale, the numbers will skew lower because many of them go into prestigious clerkships or academia. They're still great for biglaw, though, and they tend to get a very large number of interviews at OCI (on-campus interviews - a law school's internal recruiting process).
As I said in an answer to your previous question, you probably aren't going HYSC (Harvard, Yale, Stanford or Columbia) with your numbers unless you're URM (African American, Mexican American, Native American, Puerto Rican ancestry), attended one of a few select prestigious undergraduate universities or just have something crazy extraordinary, but you could get into NYU or UPenn. Those feed really well into the NYC legal market, which is doing fairly well. The job offers are nowhere near what they were before the crash, but better than Chicago, LA, and the secondary markets. If you can do median or better at NYU and you don't disqualify yourself at OCI by being a terrible interview, you will probably get some biglaw offer assuming you target New York. The going entry-level pay is around $160,000/year, although some pay more and some pay less. In NYC, that's not much. Your money goes a lot further in Chicago, parts of California, and secondary markets, of course.
