4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a legal representative for any reason, you need to work closely with them as a way to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Listed here are four important approaches to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything 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 another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular 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 should enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, whenever. In reality, because you may have to discuss last minute details or be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important so that you can convince the legal court that you just both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the 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.

Looking For A Good Child/Custody Lawyer In Or Around Killeen, Tx.?
My Stepson'S Birth Mother Has Just Been Investigated For Child Abuse (She Still Is His Primary Custodial Parent). Cps Said (Even Though There Were 2 Witnesses To Abuse Marks On His Body) That They Have Seen No Evidence Of Child Abuse Other Than His (My Stepsons) Word. I Believe That They Did Not Do A Very Good Job Of The Investigation And Closed It Because They Are &Quot;Overworked&Quot;. She Now Knows That He Has Talked To Cps And Has Acused Her Of Abusing Him So When He Goes Back To Live With Her In 2 Weeks She Will More Than Likely Punish Him Greatly For What He Has Said About Her. He Is Scared To Death Of Her And I Am Desperate To Help Him But We Do Not Have The Money For An Attorney. Can Anyone Give Me A Heads Up As To Where We Could Turn For Help?
Below are some legal directories that might help locate a lawyer:
Should I Get An Lawyer Involved To End Things With This Project Management ?
We Met This Realtor At A Family Party And After Much Talk We Ended Buying Some Properties In Florida That He Agreed To Manage Since We Live Out Of State. After A Year Of Unsatisfied Service From Him We Were Toying With The Idea Of Changing But Being A Friend Of The Family It Seemed A Touchy Subject. The Irony Is That He Decided To Drop Us Last Year. But That Is Not The Issue Here.
Working Toward Reconciling Last Year'S Expenses We Discovered A Few Inconsistencies. For Example:
Lawn Care Charges For The Month Went Up But We No Longer Got Copies Of The Original Receipt But Rather One From His Management Company. Later We Found Out That He Talked One Of Our Tenants Into Cutting The Lawn And Discounting $90 From His Monthly Rent And Proceeded To Discontinued The Services From The Original Lawn Care Company Without Notifying Us. While That Alone Is A Violation Of The Lease Agreement, That Is Not My Main Issue. He Then Proceeded To Invoice Us $100 For This Service Every Month.
Another Example Is A Charge For Cleaning One Of The Units. While Talking To The Tenant, The Cleanup Was Done By Herself And He Agreed To Deduct The Amount From Her Monthly Rent Charge (All This Without Our Knowledge). When I Requested A Copy Of The Invoice He Sent Me What Appeared To Be A Homemade Generated Invoice With A Legitimate Company Logo, Etc. I Am In The Process Of Proving That This Invoice Was Forged.
My Question Is: Should I Hire A Lawyer And Go After Him And Maybe His Real Estate License? Should I Notify His Remax Office Of This? What Are My Options And What Would You Recommend We Do.
You don't need a lawyer. You can file the complaints yourself. First Google Realtors Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. He may have violated Article 2 that says in part "...shall avoid misrepresentation, or concealment ..." Now you are prepared to file two complaints. One with the local association of Realtors. You can also file a complaint with the state at www.myfloridalicense.com.
How Does A Defense Lawyer Defend A Guilty Person?
How Would They Sleep At Night If That Guilty Person Were To Get Off After Doing A Heinous Crime?
I Would Find It Hard To Defend Them And Have That Job, So I'M Just Wondering How They Do It And Sleep At Night And Not Be Ashamed.
I'M Watching Crime And Punishment Right Now And Watching The Defense Lawyer Try And Smear A Rape Victim Got Me Wondering.
Different defense lawyers approach it different ways. The ones I know have an incredible belief in the constitution and the right to a fair trial that is guaranteed to *everyone,* guilty or not. Even if they have individual clients they may not care for particularly, that person still has rights and it is the lawyer's job to protect those rights. There's nothing shameful in that.
Keep in mind that anything you see in the movies or on TV is 100% fiction - there are laws in place to protect rape victims (in most instances in most jurisdictions) so it's pretty unlikely a real lawyer would even attempt to "smear" a rape victim.
Ok So I My B/F (We'Ll Call Him Bob) Has A Medical Case That He Believes Is Worth Taking To A Court Room.
This Is The What Happen When He Was 17 On Of His Testicals Became Swollen So He Went To The Doctor And They Gave Him A Medication For It But It Was The Wrong Medication That Caused It Become Even More Swollen He Went Back To The Doctors And They Gave Him Another Medication That Brought The Swelling Down But Now His Testical Is 2 Times Smaller The The Other And Has Possibly Became Sterile Because Of It
Also It Happened About 4 Years Ago
We Want To Know If He Was To Take It To The Court Room If He Would Have A Fighting Chance?
You can have a consultation with an attorney if you'd like to ascertain the likelihood of success of a case like this but it doesn't seem too promising to me. Malpractice doesn't mean that a doctor made a mistake. The law recognizes that doctors, like any one else, make mistakes. Malpractice means that the patient received care that was below the ordinary standards (and ordinary standards include the possibility of an honest mistake). Malpractice usually involves gross negligence or abnormally bad treatment by the physician, not just choosing a medication that didn't work as well as it should. Now if the doctor prescribed a totally inappropriate medication (for example prescribed an anti-coagulant for someone with a bleeding ulcer and caused the person to almost bleed to death) then there are grounds for suit. But to prescribe Drug 1 instead of Drug 2 (both drugs being medications for a bleeding ulcer) and drug 1 didn't work as effectively as drug 2 later did.... no, that was not negligence, that was a calculated risk and the doctor may even be able to justify why he used drug1 instead of drug 2 because of side effects, risk etc.
Would I Be A Good Lawyer? What Kind?
I Am Sixteen And Recently I Have Started Thinking About Someday Becoming A Lawyer. I Am On My School'S Newspaper And I Love Writing Essays And Papers. I Know Most Lawyers Don'T Actually Go To Court, But I Would Call Myself Argumentative, Defensive, Logical, Confident, Opinionated And I Never Back Down From A Fight. Next Year I Am Going To Be On My School'S Debate Team. I Often Play The Devil'S Advocate And I Am Good At Critical Reading. I Am Really Passionate About People'S Rights (Mainly Because Of My Journalistic Background). Also, I Was Wondering What Most Lawyers Major In Before Going To Law School.
Good lawyers are not argumentative or defensive. There ARE a number of lawyer who are argumentative and defensive but they are the bad lawyers. Their fellow lawyers despise them. And judges consider them to be substandard.
GOOD lawyers are persuasive and professional. Any disagreeable idiot can argue. And only insecure people get defensive. And only people who would cut off their noses to spite their faces "never back down from a fight." These are very very poor traits - and, regardless of what you want to be when you grow up, I would suggest you work on these issues to become more emotionally mature.
It takes a very special level of skill and charisma to professionally persuade someone else to agree with your way of thinking. Good attorneys need to be able to place the needs of their clients over their own pride otherwise the consequences can be horrific. (I am dealing with one such attorney who gave her client advice that was really bad because this attorney is an argumentative, defensive, "never back down from a fight" bit$h. And because her client followed her advice, the prosecutor ended up making the client a co-defendant in a felony child abuse case - rather than the witness that the prosecutor initially wanted her to be.)
The majors vary wildly. It depends entirely on the individual student and his/her aptitude and interests.
In Nj Regarding Simple Assault Dv Charge?
The Da Or The Police Pressed Charges On An Accused Simple Assault Labled Domestic Violence. The Vicim Did Not Press Charges Nor Wanted A Restrainin Order. Can The Victim Tell The Prosecutor To Drop The Charges Or Will The Prosecutor Refuse And Just Try The Defendant. The Police Have Pictures As Evidence. Also What Will Happen To The Defendant For A First Offense. The Defendant And Victim Are Expecting A Child.
>The victim did not press charges nor wanted a restraining order.
Yeah well that isn't how DV charges are handled your abuser didn't just wrong you they wronged the State. The people of the State have decided on a zero tolerance attitude towards DV there are no "simple DV charges" all of them are serious especially if there are substantiated injuries no matter how minor.
>Also what will happen to the defendant for a first offense.
In cases of DV there is generally no first offense slap on the back of the hand he will loose his right to own firearms will be ordered to attend counseling pay fines and court costs and may get jail time. In addition the State may keep the restraining order in place for 6 months to a year and it works BOTH ways you can get arrested along with your bf if you make any contact pregnant women get thrown in jail all the time.
>Can the victim tell the prosecutor to drop the charges
SURE but they'll totally ignore you if they have enough evidence they will very probably proceed with the State's case people are sick and tired of hearing the screaming and yelling that accompanies DV if you didn't report it then you were making enough noise to annoy the neighbors
