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.

I Live In California Is It Possible To Receive Legal Aid For A Divorce? Who Do I Contact.?
I Am Getting A Divorce In Jan And Was Wondering If I Can Get Legal Aid For A Divorce???? I Live In Californai And Who Do I Call?
Yes, you can get legal aid for a divorce in California if you qualify (that is, if your income is low enough to meet the legal aid agency's guidelines) AND if your divorce is in a county served by a legal aid agency that takes divorce cases. Many do not, but some do. For example, if you're in Los Angeles County, try the Harriet Buhai Center for Family Law (first source below); if you're in Santa Clara County, try the Pro Bono Project (second source below).
The third source below is a list of all legal aid and lawyer referral services in California; this is where I found the two examples. Near the top of the page are statewide resources; click the Free Legal Help link for LawHelp California's searchable list by county and case type. Or scroll down the page and look for your county, then look for links to legal aid organizations in that county; the link will take you to the organization's website, where you can see what kinds of cases they handle and get their contact information.
What Happens After You Confess After Asking For A Lawyer?
I Love Law Shows Like The Practice And Having Seen Many Episodes Of Many Such Shows, I Wonder: If I'M Accused Of, Say, Murder, And I Ask For A Lawyer At The Beginning Of The Interrogation, All Questioning Should Be Stopped Right Away. Right?
However, In Law Shows The Interrogation Quite Often Continues After The Cops Gloss Over The Request For A Lawyer. (I'Ve Seen This Happen In The Practice, Day Break, Dexter, Law And Order Etc.) What If I Subsequently Confess To Everything, Giving Many Details The Cops Didn'T Even Know... Would This Confession Be Thrown Out Because It Is Illegally Obtained? If Yes, Would It Subsequently Not Be Very Hard To Try Me Again (Assuming Double Jeopardy Doesn'T Apply) Because The Cops Would Not Only Have To Find Other Evidence That I Committed The Crime, But Wouldn'T They Also Have To Prove That It Wasn'T In Any Way Derived From The Illegally Obtained Confession? ('Fruit From A Poisoned Tree')
The police will only advise you of your Miranda warnings if you are subject to custodial interrogation. That means you can't leave, and they intend to ask you questions. Once you ask for an lawyer, they have to stop asking you questions. No ifs, ands or buts about it.. We all know that in the real world, at that point, the interrogation is over. Unless you have your own attorney in the next room, no public defender is going to appear to give you advice. So, you ask for a lawyer and the detectives get up and leave and a patrol officer or two walk you back down to the lock up. No more talking.
If the police are stupid, they will continue to ask you questions. If you answer them, after having asked for an attorney, whatever you say will likely be suppressed. Of course, it will only get thrown out if you tell that to your lawyer and a pre-Trial motion to suppress evidence is filed.
Now, if you ask for a lawyer, and the police stop talking to you, you can always change your mind. If you decide to start up the conversation again, and you specifically explain that you changed your mind, whatever you say will be admissible. I have had that happen many times, especially on cases with co-defendents. One guy will ask for a lawyer, and end up back downstairs in the cell. When his pals are still "chatting it up" with detectives, he might get nervous that they are blaming it all on him. So, as happens very often, he will ask the turn-key to get in touch with the detectives and tell them he wants to talk. When the interrogation resumes, it is necessary that the investigator document that the defendant changed his mind, and specifically declined legal counsel.
Now, just as a side comment. Don't pay attention to the crap yous ee on TV. None of the TV cop or lawyer shows are anywhere near close to reality. I have taken hundreds of confessions from everything from Library Theft to Murder. Any good detective knows what he/she can or can't do. Once the dirt ball um,,, defendant...asks for an attorney, the conversation is over.
Double jeopardy only attaches if you have been found "Not Guilty". If the case is withdrawn by the prosecution, or dismissed at a Preliminary hearing, "Jeopardy" has not attached. And you can eventually be brought to Trial for those charges. That's another thing that gets a little confusing to people who watch cop and lawyer shows.
Can Someone Explain Lawsuits To Me?
I Know The Guy Who Was Completely Embarassed On The Plane Got $206K For Being Made To Stand In The Back, Just Ticked Him Off.
I'Ve Been Injured In A Car Accident, I Was Ticked Off, Treated Badly, Embarassed To Hell & Back, Facing Bankrupcy, Etc, How Come I'M Not Going To Get That Kind Of Money?
Why Isn'T There Some Set Of Standards For These Things?
A lawsuit requires several things or conditions.
1. Something has to have happened to you of a negative nature, whether injury, insult, object or monetary loss, or other types of subjective or objective harm.
Just being "ticked off" probably would get laughed out of court. The guy at the back of the plane might well have had a civil rights violation, which is a lot more than being ticked off. Public embarassment might qualify depending on degree and nature of the event. Physical injury as the result of a car accident absolutely qualifies for lawsuits.
2. A person's action must be directly responsible for causing the negative event.
If a person does things that lead to your being injured in the legal sense, and you don't contribute to the event in any way, and there is no hint of it being an act of nature / act of God, then there can be an argument for cause and effect relationship between the person's actions and your injury. This is tricky and hard to explain other than to say that if you are a klutz and get hurt, a defense against a lawsuit would be that you are klutz and therefore are more likely to be hurt without anyone's help.
3. There must be a way to assign monetary value to the event or to its result.
Property action: Some jerk drives his car into yours while it is parked. You can file a suit for property damage.
Personal injury: Same jerk drives his car into yours while you are in it, whether parked or moving. You are physically injured by the accident. You can file a suit for personal injury.
Civil Rights violation: Many constitutional laws make certain actions punishable through the courts as personal rights issues. For instance, the guy on the plane. Being told to not stay in a particular area - when there was no safety hazard and no other reason to stay in that area -might have been a civil rights violation.
4. A lawyer must be willing to take your case on hearing its nature. If you run into a raft of lawyers who do not want to take the case, you might reconsider its worthiness as a legal action.
The lawyer files the suit. You become the plaintiff, the person or persons who caused you to experience the event become the defendants. You request some type of damages or corrective behavior or perhaps both. The defendant might try to settle out of court for less money than you requested. Or, you can roll the dice with a jury and see how much they want to award you - if anything.
Can You Ever Truly Trust Another Person?
Or Can You Only Really Only Trust Yourself?
Trust is such an important thing in any relationship of meaning.
I personally was much too trusting when I was a younger man. That trust was so often abused, and people would tell me I was "taken advantage of". That's the thing about trust when you are a decent man. Don't do it too easily, or you might be hurt. But then, if you give someone your advantage, then they really can't "take advantage" of you, can they?
That's the way I see it now; That we all find a time when we somehow "know" that we can trust somone with anything, and know that they will never violate that confidence. So I suppose that before I trust someone completely, I have to have love and respect for them, and hopefully they for me. For that reason, I do not trust often, and that trust is probably the only thing of actual value that I really ever offer a friend, or a lover. When I say the word "value", I do not mean a gift, or something of monetary means, as those things are worthless at the end of one's life. When you give someone your confidence, you are showing them what they mean to you, and how you think of them. Think about what you might say, without words, to a person you allow into your bed. You are telling them that you trust them with your heart and with your body. I cannot think of a more beautiful statement of trust as that...
I tell you, every one of my friends know that I trust them. I SHOW them what they mean to me with my every action. Some would say that this would make me "soft", especially fellow Marines... But I have found something much finer and meaningful than I ever could have found as the young, stupid, arrogant boy that I once was. Every relationship I've ever had, either romantic or otherwise, has hinged on trust.
So to answer your question: Yes, you can trutst another person. In fact, it might be quite nescessary, if the relationship is ever to have depth and meaning. Of course, this is all based on MY experiences, and in no way do I think that this can be applied to any other person's life. I just wanted to share my perspective with you.
Hoping To Become A Corporate Lawyer! (:?
I Am A Freshman At Georgia State University. I Didn'T Do So Hot This Past Semester. I Got A Gpa Of 2.7. I Ended Up Getting A Reality Check And I'M Trying To Get As High A Gpa As Possible! My Goal Is To Graduate From Ga State Within 3 Years! My Major Is Accounting(: And I'M Hoping To Go To Berkeley Or Columbia [Ny] For Law School! Can Anyone Give Me Any Tips To Achieve My Goal Of Becoming A Corporate Lawyer? Any Tips On Lsat Scores, And How To Stay Focused? Anything Would Help!
Hey life is beautiful,
Don't listen to PE2008 - if he really believes that, he has no clue what he's talking about. In-house counsel jobs are extremely sought-after.
As far as how to go into corporate law (which, for the most part, isn't in-house counsel; rather, it's working for a large firm doing corporate litigation), you really do want to go to the best school you can get into.
This most likely means NOT graduating in 3 years. With a poor first semester, you're going to need all the time you can to bring that GPA up as high as possible. For Columbia or (especially) Berkeley, you want at least a 3.75, higher if possible. That's going to be tough if you only have 5 more semesters with which to raise you GPA. I might even suggest going the other way - 5 years to graduate - if you can afford it. That will give you enough time to raise your GPA enough (assuming you do exceptionally well from here on out).
Accounting is a solid major - it gives you a skill set that's in demand right now (JD/CPA is a combo that's very highly sought by corporate firms).
As far as the LSAT goes, you're going to want to break 170 in order to have a decent shot at the top schools. The higher the better. When the time comes to take the exam, make sure to prep for it a decent amount. The average amount of time spent studying for it is 3 months, about 4 hours, 6 days a week. It seems like a lot, but there's a lot riding on it.
