4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To If you want an attorney for any excuse, you must work closely along with them so that you can win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Listed here are 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 - no matter what information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is saved 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 check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they should help them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, each time. In reality, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a great 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 convince the court that you both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

What Do Lawyers Cost?
I Am A Small Business Owner And It Seems It Would Be Impossible To Be Insured For Everything.
I Fear Getting Sued For Something Minor And Being Held Responsible For Attorney Fees.
Can You Tell Me What Lawyers Charge Say For A Slip And Fall Or Something Else That A Small Business May Be Sued For? I Do Not Fear The Damages I Fear The Lawyers Fees. I Would Like To Know More About This So I Can Have A Better Understanding Of The Threats I Face.
I Live In Ma Which Is Not Business Friendly And If I Got The Wrong Judge I Suspect I Could Lose My Shirt.
I Have Not Been Sued For Anything Before However I Do Fear This.
Thank You !
Slip and fall should be covered under your premises liability insurance. In that case the insurance company hires and pays for the lawyer.
On the other hand, if you are sued for something like breach of contract the lawyer fees would be on you. Good lawyers in big cities will run $200-$350/hr and up.
Don't let the fear of legal fees keep you from running your business. The chances of getting sued are small. I have practiced law for 35 years and have never seen a small business owner go broke paying his lawyer.
Can A Family Hire An Attorney To Locate Their Deceased Family Will?
Do Estate Planning Lawyers Often This Kind Of Service? The State Is Nj And The Family Is Guessing Used A Lawyer Located In The County Where He Resided.
How do you know there is one? Check with a lawyer to see what happens without a will. Most states have laws which automatically set who inherits without a will. Otherwise, hire a PI. A lawyer will just do that and add his own fee on top of it.
Be A Lawyer,Is A Lucrative Profession???

Which Major Is Best For Law School?
I Am Either Going To Major In Marketing Or Administration. Which Is Most Desirable By Law Schools And Why?
Law schools generally don't care what you majored in. I just graduated from law school in May and we had all kinds of majors in our class (religion, political science, business, math, engineering, etc.). A lot of people who think they want to go to law school do political science or history. The problem with those types of majors though, is that if you change your mind about law school or can't get in, you have limited options for other employment. If you go with something like engineering, finance, marketing, or any other "in demand" field, you at least have a degree that can get you a good paying job after you graduate if law school ends up not being your thing.
I majored in Business Admin in undergrad and got a pretty good job with a large company when I graduated. As a benefit of my employment I was able to go to law school at night and have the company pay for it. I probably wouldn't have been able to make that happen with some of the other majors out there.
Question About Legal Separation Here...?
My Husband Filed For A Legal Separation A Few Years Ago When I Was In An Accident And Under A Lot Of Mental Stress. I Signed Some Paper That I Didn'T Understand That Was Given To Me By My Brother.
Neither Of Us Have Heard Anything About It Since. We Have Been Living Together With Only About 40 Days Separation In The Last 3 Years.
Are We Legally Married Or Separated? Am I Considered His Wife? Is There A Way For Me To Find Out? He Has No Idea And Did Not Use A Lawyer..
First of all, I'm not a lawyer.
Being legally separated is not the same as being divorced. It means that two people who are married are living apart and the legal separation describes the conditions of them living apart. Mostly it would involve how expenses are shared and how children are cared for. So, you would still be married even if you were legally separated. If that were the case there should be some written court order describing the terms of your living arrangement.
But it's possible that the legal separation process was not completed. Ask your husband if he submitted any papers to the court and which court he was dealing with. Check with that court.

By The Way I Live In Texas =)
Immigration law is a specialty practice of law, just like contracts law, personal injury law or constitutional law - if you want to be come an immigration attorney, you would get an undergraduate degree, then apply to a law school. The law schools in Texas, Arizona, Florida, and California are places (for obvious reasons) where "immigration law" tracks are popular and readily available.
Your choice of an undergraduate degree isn't as important as some people might tell you. It is NOT necessary to major in anything called "pre-law". What is more important is that you earn very good grades, as the better law schools are all highly selective when it comes to admissions. Sure, Yale accepts only 7.3% of its law school applicants, but even the University of Wyoming accepts only slightly more than 1/4 of the students who apply for admission.
You will want to focus on a major that gives you exposure to a broad range of disciplines - law schools like to see applicants with psychology, philosophy, government and business courses on their transcripts. Don't discount courses like mathematics, which you might not see as relevant - trust me, lawyers spend a lot of time working with numbers, and if you ever hope to manage your own practice, you'll need both business and math expertise.
Law schools also like to see themselves as training empathic people who want to serve and improve their communities - this means you should take advantage of opportunities to involve yourself in social programs, whether it's mentoring disadvantaged students, working with the hungry and homeless, job training, senior citizens, whatever. You should do these things throughout your college years, not just in high school.
Law school is usually a 3-year program, so you're looking at 4 years for an undergraduate, plus another 3 for the JD (juris doctorate). You'll need to take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) near the end of your junior year as an undergrad, so that you'll have your scores in hand when you apply to law school as a senior. It's also worth noting that many (but certainly not all) law school applicants take time off between their undergraduate degree and their law school application - some law schools place a premium on work experience, especially if it's at all related to the study or application of the law.
Law school is an intense graduate program, which will challenge you to think about things in a whole new way. Many schools use a somewhat unique training approach called "the Socratic method", where the emphasis is on self-discovery gained while pondering "deep" questions, rather than taking notes as your professors lecture. Some people love it, some people hate it, some universities find it old-fashioned and don't bother with it. You'll do best in law school if you like to think more than follow instructions.
Law school, like every other professional graduate program (medicine, dentistry, etc) is an expensive endeavor. There are plenty of loans available, but most law school students leave law school burdened with heavy debt. The most recent figures put the average debt around $54,000 for state university schools and $83,000 for private law schools. Unfortunately, these debt loads turn many students away from some of the lower-paying community service-type law practices.
I hope this helped you - good luck!
