4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To If you want a legal representative for any reason, you should work closely along with them to be able to win your case. Irrespective of how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - particularly information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should help them 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 punctually, whenever. In fact, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the case 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 any sort of crime, it's important so as to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Trouble With A Lawyer?
I Consulted With A Lawyer About Litigation. His Initial Estimation Was $20,000 And 60 Months. So I Paid That Amount To Contract With Him. Seven Months Later He Requested Additional Retainer Of $10,000 Partly Because The Volume Of My E-Mail Evidence Was More Than He Had Expected, And I Paid Him. Four Months Later He Requested Me To Cover Another Cost Of $7,500 For Him To Consult With An Expert, And I Paid Him. After He Received A Report From The Expert, He Advised Me Either To Withdraw Voluntarily Or To Pay $200,000 Or More. Since Then He Has Not Given Any Answers To My Questions. Are There Any Other Options?
Litigation is expensive. When you retain a lawyer, they will make an "estimate" of the time required to work on your case. The initial $20,000 was based on his hourly rate times the number of hours to review, file, pleadings, depositions and in court. The addle $10,000 for the numerous e-mails could be expected and also for the $7,500 for the expert, since they never do this for free.
But,,,after he got the experts report back, now he wants you to withdraw voluntarily, which sounds like your case is not winnable, so wants out.
To go from $30,000 to now $200,000 more does bear some questions that he needs to answer. Does he need to hire more lawyers to handle this, since this is so complicated, he needs help and cant do alone? Is it for more experts?
"Technically" he must continue to represent you, till you either fire the lawyer or w/draw from this case.
If you feel he did not represent you correctly or question some of the things he has done, then you can file a complaint with the supreme court in the state where you live. The site will have a place where they will have a form to fill out on your complaint.
NO lawyer can tell you if you will win a case, since many times many factors can come into play, that could affect the outcome of your case. But,,,,many lawyers can tell you if they "believe" it is winnable or not, and if after this point, he realizes, your case is most likely a loser, suggest you stop the flow of money.

How Much Alimony Might I Owe?
We Have No Children But She Does Not Work. We Are Renters And Only Have 1 Car. I Make About 2000 A Month. Would It Be Reasonable To Expect That If I Pay Alimony, It Will Be Less Than 800 A Month?
Alimony is a state specific formula, so without knowing what state you reside in we would be unable to assist you. Even then, some states make alimony mandatory for the rest of your life regardless of circumstances while other states you must be married at least 5 to 10 years before alimony can be awarded. However, some states have provisions for situations like yours were temporary alimony or maintenance is paid to the spouse who is not working while he/she looks for work. Be sure to ask the court to take her earning potential (if she had a job) into account and to have it court-ordered that she must look for and obtain a job. All in all, you should really speak to a licensed attorney in your state about your concerns so you can find out specifically how your state would handle your situation.
In the meanwhile, if you follow the link below and click on your appropriate state, you will find a short summary of the divorce laws and alimony practices of your state. Please remember that each state is specific and this is only a summary. You will need to speak to an attorney to find out more in depth details.
While you are at the website, you might want to do some research on alimony and other topics that you may be facing in relation to your divorce to learn what you can now.

Advice For Me?
I can't answer for myself, but my father is a lawyer and I am planning on taking the LSAT, and I know a lot about his practice, so I can answer for him
1. Founder/owner of his own company (don't want to give name!) in NYC
2. Bachelor's degree: Brandeis. Masters degree in Philosophy: McGill. J.D.: NYU
3. Depends, but usually you intern in college if you can, go on to law school and intern/work during the summer when in law school as a paralegal, pass the bar exam, get an entry-level job at a law firm. If you do well you will move up the ranks of that law firm (or transfer to another firm and move up the ranks there)
4. Average salary for an attorney is about $57,000, but you can make much more than that (members of my family who are in law make $1 million+). It also depends where you work (what city) and what type of law you practice. Management of companies/enterprises: $128,610; Federal Government: $119,240; Legal services: $108,100; Local Government: $78,810; State Government: $75,840
5. Everyone will always need lawyers, so this profession won't be going away any time soon. However, many more people are going to law school than they have in past years, so getting a job will be competitive
6. It totally depends on what sort of law you work in. Lots of phone calls, e-mails and meetings.
7. He would probably say he loves trying a case--it's exciting and interesting, and he's great at what he does
8. Would probably say the stress of working so hard
9. Important personality traits: definitely being able to think very, very fast on your feet. Being able to twist facts around so they suit your argument. Ability to write and research well. Well-organized. Very hard worker.
10. Advice/how you should prepare: Getting hired by a good law firm is really contingent upon what law school you go to, which in turn depends basically only on your LSAT and GPA (and the quality of your undergraduate institution, though to a lesser extent.) Get into a good college, work extremely hard, and ace your LSAT.
Is It Ever Justifiable To Openly Defy The Law? Should Young People Defer To Their Elders' Wishes?...?
I Need To Some Answers From These Questions Asked In My Final Assessment In Antigone:
1.) Is It Ever Justifiable To Openly Defy The Law?
2.) Should Young People Defer To Their Elders' Wishes?
3.) Does A Leader Have The Right To Make Sweeping Judgemetns Over Reason?
1) I'd say yes, but always be prepared to face the consequences. Remember, the best way to prove a law is wrong, is to demonstrate it to others by example.
2) Again I'd say yes, but preferably the elders make informed decisions, after listening to reasonable arguments, and usually these arguments are made without pouting.
3) I'd say no, in most cases, but the trouble is that we can't always see the big picture, and its even more unfortunate when important parts of that picture have to remain secret.
