4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need an attorney for any reason, you need to work closely using them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Listed here are four important ways 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 going to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. In fact, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important in order to prove to a legal court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Question On Criminal Defense Law.?
Every Time I Bring Up An Interest In Pursuing Law School And A Career In Criminal Law, I Hear The Same Broken Record. People Seem Fixated On The Idea That Criminal Defense Lawyers Rigorously Try Acquit People They Know Are Guilty. I'Ve Never Taken An Ethics Class And I Don'T Know The Laws, But Is This True?
Are Lawyers Supposed To Receive Admissions Of Guilt From Their Client? If A Client Confesses To His/Her Representation, Wouldn'T That Make It Unethical To Submit A Plea Of Not Guilty? For Some Reason, I Have It In My Head That Clients, If Guilty, Are Supposed To Tell Everything But The Dirty Deed For Best Representation. Any Thoughts? Thanks In Advance!
I'M Not Biased For/Against Defense Lawyers. It'S Not My Area Of Interest, But It Is Interesting Area Of Ethics Nonetheless!
There's an old adage that the first client of the criminal defense attorney is the US Constitution.
Most criminal defense lawyers don't care whether their clients are guilty or not. They just want to ensure that the police and the prosecutors have done their jobs properly and ensure the criminal justice system is working. If they lose at trial, but are satisfied the the police and prosecutors did everything by the book, they generally don't take it too hard. If the defense thinks a conviction is imminent, they will generally try a plea bargain to receive a lesser sentence for their client. Before anyone makes any judgment's about the criminal defense attorney "trying to get his client off with a slap on the wrist", they should also realize that the prosecutor has to agree to the deal, and the judge has to approve it. So if anyone is ever upset with a plea bargain, they need to realize that if the judge and prosecutor went along with it, its probably in the state's best interest as well.
But to answer your question, see below.
ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 3.3 Candor Toward The Tribunal
(a) A lawyer shall not knowingly:
(1) make a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal or fail to correct a false statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal by the lawyer;
(2) fail to disclose to the tribunal legal authority in the controlling jurisdiction known to the lawyer to be directly adverse to the position of the client and not disclosed by opposing counsel; or
(3) offer evidence that the lawyer knows to be false. If a lawyer, the lawyer’s client, or a witness called by the lawyer, has offered material evidence and the lawyer comes to know of its falsity, the lawyer shall take reasonable remedial measures, including, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal. A lawyer may refuse to offer evidence, other than the testimony of a defendant in a criminal matter, that the lawyer reasonably believes is false.
(b) A lawyer who represents a client in an adjudicative proceeding and who knows that a person intends to engage, is engaging or has engaged in criminal or fraudulent conduct related to the proceeding shall take reasonable remedial measures, including, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal.
(c) The duties stated in paragraphs (a) and (b) continue to the conclusion of the proceeding, and apply even if compliance requires disclosure of information otherwise protected by Rule 1.6.
So if a client confesses guilt to his lawyer, the above rule prohibits the lawyer from putting the client on the stand (refered to as "subornation of perjury"). If the lawyer knows the client is guilty, and the client doesn't plead guilty, the case goes to trial. At trial, the lawyer can't put the client on the stand, because the lawyer knows the client will lie about his or her innocence once they are on the stand. This is why defense lawyers don't care whether their clients are guilty or not, and why they specifically tell their clients not to tell them if they are guilty or not. They don't want to know, so they can put them on the stand.
Believe it or not, this rule is almost never violated. No lawyer would ever risk losing his license because his or her client is a liar.
And remember, OJ didn't take the stand. Draw your own conclusion....
Do I Need To Talk To A Real Estate Lawyer?
I Put A $5000 Deposit On A Townhouse That I Want To Buy. There Is A Tenant In It, Her Lease Is Not Up Until Novenber. We Were Going To Close By The End Of The Month. I Was Going To Let The Tenant Stay Until Her Lease Is Up. Someone Told Me To Think About It First.
What If When Nov. Comes And She Does Not Want To Leave. And Also, What If She Stops Paying Her Rent. She Has A Little Girl And I Know Sometimes It Can Take Up To A Year To Get People Out.
I Am Afraid Of Losing The House Before I Even Move In.
So, Now I Have Told My Realtor That I Want The Owners To Get Her Out Before The Closing. I Am Willing To Wait Until Nov. When Her Lease Is Up. I Should Also Say That My Mortage Guy Knows Nothing About That Fact That There Is A Tenant In The House. My Realtor Said That It Would Be Better Not To Tell Him.
I Don'T Want To Lose My Deposit. And I Would Like To Buy The House. So Far There Is No Lawers Involved. The Owners Were Not Going To Use A Lawyer. Do I Need To Talk To One?
If you are ever not sure about a real estate transaction talk to a lawyer. Have the lawyer read the lease, you and the tenant both have to honor the current lease. If she doesn't pay then you evict like any landlord, and she has to move out when the lease is up. Your Realtor told you not to tell your lender about the tenant because the property probably has to be "owner occupied" or you pay a higher interest rate. You should also point that out to the attorney, if the lender finds out a tenant is there your payment could go up to about 1% of the homes value each month.
See A Copy Of The Will & Probate Court Records?
Grandma Passed Away And I Never Heard Anything From Our Uncle About What Was Left To Me. How Can I Find Out? If I Was In The Will, Wouldn'T I Have To Be Contacted By The Lawyer Handling The Case?
When a will is before the probate court, it is public information. Some counties have websites which publish the documents filed in probate court.
If you are an heir, you will be contacted (assuming the executor can find you). But it may not be immediately after the death.
Some states allow an executor up to four years after the death to file for probate. After the will is filed for probate, the executor must find and report all assets of the estate. That could be weeks later. Then the executor may liquidate some assets in order to divide them among heirs. Depending on the complexity of the estate, that could be months or years longer.
If you have questions, contact the clerk of the probate court in the county in which you believe the estate might have been filed. Or call your uncle. (Note: An executor does not have to detail his actions to heirs unless instructed to do so by the court.)
If it appears that you are not being treated fairly in this matter, consult your attorney.
Can Anyone Tell Me What Part Of The 3Rd Reich The Child Support Guidelines Were Originally Written In?
The Childsupport Guidelines In The State Of Florida Are Written To Be Deliberately Unfair To The Non Primary Custodial Parent. While I Have No Problem Supporting My Children I Do Know The Difference Between Child Support And Shrew Support. Moreover I Feel The Default Scenario Should Be That Any Father Who Wants Greater Than Forty Percent Of The Overnights Should Be Granted It And The Benefits Of Such An Agreement. Noting How Unfair This System Is I Was Wondering If Anyone Could Tell Me What Part Of The 3Rd Reich They Originated In.
The entire system of child support is totally 1000000000000000% against males. Women always get the kid and the dad is stuck giving the woman thousands of dollars a year. Look at stars and sports figures, they end up giving the woman like $25,000 a month in child support. There is no way in the world it takes $25,000 a month to raise a child. There are women who make a living on child support, 3 kids, 3 different dad's equals about $1500 a month. Most of the time the woman just spends the money on herself. Child support laws are written by liberal democrats and they should all be struck down and rewritten by people with brains.
