4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a legal representative for any excuse, you should work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important ways to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information the other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must help them win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, whenever. The truth is, because you might need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important so as to prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

How Do I Find A Pro-Bono Lawyer (Not Legal Aid) To Help With A Custody Battle?
I Am Going Through A Tough Custody Battle Where Domestic Violence Is Involved, And I Cannot Find Help Anywhere. Is There A Place Besides Legal Aid That You Can Find A Lawyer That Will Do Pro-Bono Work? I Can Explain Further If Needed For Finding A Lawyer Purpose. (I Am In Michigan)
Normally legal aid is the agency that will handle pro-bono type cases. It differs from state to state though. Other than a legal aid office, probably the best source for possible pro-bono would your state's bar association. Most state's bar association has a pro-bono division (or have the phone to give you) where private lawyers have volunteered to do some pro-bono work. You will have to qualify and such but if you do qualify, they will normally assign your case to a private attorney (rather than legal aid) who will do the work without charge to you. You would still be responsible for the costs though.
Please note though that a "tough custody battle" is not something most attorneys want to get involved in when they are not being paid to do it. You may not qualify for pro-bono or your type of case may not be one that pro-bono is done. If you are accepted, once an attorney sees that it is very involved and will cost him/her a lot of time, they may decline to handle the case. Legal aid, or hiring a private attorney, may be your only options.
Can I Be Successful In The Field Of Law As A Minority, Female Attorney?
I Know This Seems Like A Bit Of A Stupid Question. I'Ve Decided That I Want To Go To Law School, But I'M Not Sure Of Which Area Of Law Yet. But Today I Was Talking To One Of My Close Friends, And He Was Telling Me &Quot;You Know, People Are Going To Be Really Reluctant To Hire You. Most People Want A Jewish Male Attorney, And You Being An African American Female, It'S Gonna Be Extra Tough For You.&Quot; Granted, His Father Is A Jewish Male Attorney, So He Could Be A Bit Biased, But Other People Have Told Me The Same Thing. Obviously, Choosing An Attorney Shouldn'T Be Based On Race, But On Skill, But How Will I Have A Chance To Prove Myself If This Really Is True? So I Guess My Question Is, Is This Really True? And If So, How Can I Try To Overcome This To Prove Myself As A Great Attorney?
Also, Please No Rude Or Racist Comments. I Need Serious Answers. Thank You!
I am a white, Roman Catholic female, who was over 40 when I graduated law school.
This issue of being Jewish is just nonsense anymore. Maybe at some time in the 1950s a person's religion was important but not now. Granted there are some law firms who hire by religion, but they are very few and are staffed by the old guys or at those the old thinking guys. Heck, in Chicago we have an active Christian bar association that holds an annual Red Mass at the Cathedral -- it is sold out months before the event.
This is the same bs that the old attorneys, and I mean those who went to law school 1940-1970 preach. They will tell you that you must belong to some organization like Kiwanis (sp), or Chamber or Commerce, or other male oriented old-boy-network to get clients. Again bs. Even members of these organizations will pick the attorney who does the best job for the least amount of money over a fellow member.
Now the issue of being a female is another thing. There is lots and lots of gender discrimination in the field of law. When I went on interviews I would be asked how fast I typed, if I was planning to have kids, was I married -- you know all those allegedly illegal questions.
I worked for a firm with 2 other male attorneys and no support staff. I was put at the reception desk where I answered the phones, typed the one partners notes, and handled about 40 of my own cases. You should have seen the look on the clients faces when they were assigned to the receptionist. Once I learned all I could from this job I went on to open my own firm in competition to this one. They no longer exist.
So you will encounter sex discrimination. Because the profession of law is over 40% female there are lots of others fighting the same thing. There are also woman's bar associations that can help out.
As for race, it really is not an issue in law. At least the profession has come that far. A black lawyer appears to have the same opportunites. I believe that is thanks to the great work done by the black lawyers bar associations.
If you really want to become an attorney and have that calling, go for it. It is the best job you can ever have. Good luck.
Finding A Lawyer To Help With Investing In A Business?
I Have Seen A Few Opportunities Online In My Area From People Looking For $20,000-$30,000 With Me Receiving An Ownership Percentage Of The Company As A Silent Investor. I Would Like To Find A Lawyer To At Least Look Over Whatever It Is That Needs To Be Looked Over To Make Sure Everything Is Legitimate And I Am Not Being Scammed In Some Way, Does Anyone Have Any Experience In Doing Such Things Or Know Which Kind Of Lawyer I Need To Get In Contact With? Thanks
As for finding a lawyer, contact your area's bar association. They can provide a referral. You'll likely need a corporate and/or securities lawyer. Expect to pay handsomely for their time.
I agree with Thomas, though: you won't need one until you've dug into the investment itself and done your "due diligence" with the people and company involved. There are scam investments all over the place that end up being Ponzi schemes or just outright frauds. Most of these people are going to be smooth talkers; they'll get you jazzed as hell about making tons of money. You won't even know you've been robbed until they're already gone and either out of the country or sheltered in bankruptcy. If you have that kind of money to invest, I'd guess you're probably in a country club or something like that. If you spend half an hour in the club's bar or sauna on the weekend, you'd find several people (especially doctors) who got scammed on deals like this.
First, presume that anything that sounds to good to be true probably is. Second, anything that offers rates of return higher than... probably 7 or 8 % will likely be a scam or at least very high risk. Third, limit your investment in these kinds of deals to whatever you'd be willing to take to Vegas and lose on a single bet at a roulette wheel. Fourth, understand there is no quick route to lasting wealth; anyone who says otherwise is trying to sell you something you don't need to be buying.
Wv Legal Aid Concerning Employer Discrimination And Harassment?
Double Standards Towards 3Rd Shift Personel. If There Was A Problem On The Crisis Unit I Worked On We Generally Were The Ones To Get Written Up. Sexual Harrassment, I'Ve Never Been So Embarrassed As I Was When I Came Into Work And Saw Sex Toy Party Price Sheet And Discriptions In The Open Where Clients Or Uninterested Staff Could See The Junk. Also Anonymous Letters Making Acusations Of A Sexual Nature Towards 3Rd Shift Staff And When The Staff In Question Asked The Hr Director To Show Them These Letters We Were Denied. Also Being Denied A Position At A Group Home Where I Worked For 3 1/2 Years Because My Wife Works There When Another Married Couple Work In The Same Home. The Reason For Me Being Denied Going Back To This Location The Hr Director Has Given Me On Several Occasion Was &Quot;Husband And Wives Weren'T Permitted To Work In The Sama Location.&Quot; That Was The Reason That I Transferred To The Crisis Unit To Begin With. Where Do I Go For Help On This?
If you are referring to Legal Aid or Legal Services agencies that provide free legal assistance to qualified individuals then you will probably not be able to receive assistance from those agencies. Your issue of employment discrimination and harassment probably does not qualify as an issue Legal Aid can assist with. Generally, Legal Aid only assists with Family Law issues (custody, PFAs, divorces - and usually the client must be under a certain income level and be a victim of domestic abuse). However you should still contact the agencies to be certain and they will probaby be able to provide you with a Lawyer Referral Service that will refer you to a private attorney who may be able to handle your case.
Beyond that you can also contact private attorneys practicing labor law and employment discrimination and see if they will take your case. You can find attorneys listed in the phone book or on the Martindale-Hubble directory service.
Finally, you can also seek your local state government agencies like the Department of Labor and Attorney General's Office to see if you can file a complaint or take any other action. See the HUD.gov website.
Can A Bill Of Sale Override A Title If The Trailer Is Up For Bidding By The Tax Office?
I Put A Down Payment Down On A Mobile Home In 2008 And Have Been Living In The Home Since Then And Making Monthly Payments To Rent To Own. I Just Found Out The The Mobile Home Went Up For Tax Sale In 2008 And Was Not Bought, And That Bids Are Being Taken On It And If One Is Accepted I Could Loose My Home That I Have Paid More Then The Taxes For. Now The Person I Am Buying The Home From Is Not The Person The Tax Office Has Listed As Owning The Mobile Home But Claim To Have A Title. If I Bid On The Trailer I Am Told That I Will Have A Bill Of Sale On The Trailer, Will The Bill Of Sale Override The Above Person'S Title Or How Does That Work? Also, Will I Be Responsible For Any Back Taxes And Or Any New Taxes?
Thank You, Mrs. Ice
Contact your local legal aid office and see if you can speak to a real estate attorney about your rights in this matter. You could of course pay the taxes on the trailer and then it wouldn't go up for sale. But clearly something is wrong and you need to find out from a local authority.
Anyone Know A Good Cheap Adoption Lawyer In Illinois?
I Was Wondering If Anyone Knew Of A Good Adoption Lawyer In The Champaign Urbana, Bloomington Area That Is Pretty Cheap. I Am Getting Married To The Man Of My Dreams And He Would Love To Adopt Her. He Is Her Daddy He Has Been There Since She Was 3 Months Old. Her Biological Father Is No Where To Be Found But We Really Dont Have That Much Money But I Want Her To Have The Same Lastname As Me And For My Soon To Be Husband To Be On Her Birth Certificate. Can Anyone Help Me Please...
Thanks In Advance
My recommendation is to call around to see what each attorney is charging. There are many websites that you can access to get names of attorneys that handle adoption cases. My wife and I are also considering adopting in a different state and I'm sure I will be going through the same process very soon. I have attached a few good places to start your search.
Attached are the links below. Good luck and I wish you the best.
