4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a lawyer at all, you should work closely together so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Do 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, whenever. In fact, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward enhancing your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

My Appointed Lawyer From Legal Aid Acted Malisously Causing Me To Ow Have An Intervention Order Against Me And No Contact With My Daughter For The Past 6 Months.

My Complaints To The Appropriate Departments Of Government Have Proved Worthless As They Just Handball Me Around And Ultimately Just Waste My Time.
Need Help As I'M Also A Physically Disabled Man Struggling To Fight This Corrupt System.
you are either clueless, and outright liar or a troll.....
there are not court appointed lawyers in the US for family law issues such as custody or visitation.
there is no federal court that deals with family issues, that an attorney is obligated to file in.
if you receive free assistance and want something better pay for it yourself!
this is not about a "corrupt system" this is all about YOU, the fact that you want something done that is not possible, or are a liar, or you're a TROLL wasting our time....
What Is The Difference Between Complex Business Litigation And Commercial Litigation?
Commercial litigation is the handling of disputes in a business setting. The disputes may be minor, or complicated.
Complex business litigation is just that. It usually involves many parties, lots of documents, and a great deal of money. Complex business litigation is a subset of commercial litigation. It is a more specialized practice.
What Is A Law Firm'S Typical Billable Hour Expectations For A Newly Minted Associate Attorney?
A Few Classmates And I Have Debated Over What The Typical Billable Hour Expectations Are From Ca Law Firms Of A New Associate Attorney.
Recently, I Came Across A Job Offer For A 0-1 Yr Experienced Attorney, Which Stated That 200 A Month / 2400 A Year Billable Is Required.
Is This An Unrealistic Expectation For A Firm To Have Of A New Attorney?
Can 200 Billable Hours A Month / 2400 A Year Actually Be Achieved?
Is There Any Type Of Typical Billable Hour Requirement Range That This Falls Outside Or Within?
2,300 to 2,400 billable hours a year is a standard expectation for a first year associate in a big law firm or any regional law firm that pays comparable salary. It is not an unrealistic expectation and if you want to pursue a career as an attorney in a big law firm you have to be willing to put in the hours necessary to achieve that goal. Not every hour at work is billable either. While it varies depending on the ability and efficiency of the associate and the efficiency of those attorneys with whom the associate works, the ratio of billable hours to non-billable hours is usually in the neighborhood of 2:1 to 3:1 which translates into about 3,200-3,600 hours for the year. Associates at big law firms achieve these hours by working late almost every day, coming in on weekends frequently and working while on vacation (hence the term "sweatshop" firm that is attributed to most big law firms). There really are not many jobs in any area where it is reasonable for a person with a professional graduate degree to expect to receive a six figure salary as an entry level employee so the work hour expectation is not that unfair or unrealistic.
As a first year associate, you really have no practical skills as a lawyer to use as a basis for evaluation for most of your first year, so your end of the year performance review relies heavily upon your billable hours. While it is not fatal to your career to fall a hundred hours or so short of 2,400, there is not a lot of flexibility to allow for a favorable performance review if you fall much shorter than that in terms of billable hours.
If those hours seem unpalatable for you then you should seek employment elsewhere such as with a government agency or a smaller firm although there is no guarantee that a smaller firm with lower pay will not have heavy billable hour or work hour requirements, especially given the employment market conditions for lawyers in the current economy which is even worse than the traditionally already bad employment market for entry level attorneys. If you do work at one of these positions your salary will most likely be a fraction of that of a big law firm associate with the median being around 40k (possible lower in this economy).
Property Lawyer Or Major !! I Have A Homework Help!!!?
Susan Has Contracted To Sell Her Home To Bob. Sale Is For $100,000 Cash With No Conditions Except That Title Be Marketable And The Sale To Close On July 20 At Susan’S Attorney’S Office.July 18, Bob Calls Susan And Informs Her That He Had Planned To Buy The Property By A “Loan Assumption” (I.E. Rich Uncle). Rich Uncle, However, Has Refused And Bob Does Not Have The Cash To Go Ahead With The Deal.Bob Further Mentions That He Has Some Other Real Estate Worth About $500,000 And He Could Sell Or Get A Loan Against This Real Estate And Have Enough Cash To Go Ahead With The Deal In The Future.Bob Asks Susan If She Will Extend The Closing For A Month, Until Aug 20.Susan Says No And Informs Bob That She Is Ready, Willing And Able To Perform On July 20.On July 20, No Closing Takes Place.On July 21, Susan Sues Bob For Breach Of Contract.Please Answer :(1) Has Bob Breached The Contract? (B) Does Susan Have The Right To Sue Bob On July 21? (C) If Susan Can Sue Bob On July 21, Any Remedies Availab?
1. Yes, Bob has breached the contract.
2. Yes, Susan DOES have the right to sue BUT must first look to the Restatement 2d (or the laws of her jurisdiction) with respect to contracts for real property & giving the opportunity to cure. Usually, she must give Bob an opportunity to cure of 10 days (sometimes more), but NOT ALWAYS.
3. She can sue for Breach of Contract. But, she will NOT get a remedy that commands Bob to perform - specific performance almost NEVER gets awarded, especially in such a situation. She may be able to settle the debt by either renegotiating the payment terms OR by attaching a security interest in Bob's other property. For this, she must get a written agreement under the new terms AND file a Financing Statement with the local court clerk or county office - the court clerk will know exactly where to file for your jurisdiction. If she does not do BOTH (get a written agreement & file a financing statement) she will not be able to take priority over other creditors who may have an interest in Bob's other property which is not yet perfected.
I Have A Dear Friend Who Is In Desperate Help. She Needs A Probono Lawyer To Help With A Divorce?
She Has Been Physically And Mentally Abused For 26 Years And Finally Has The Courage To End It But Is On Disability And Does Not Have The Money For A Lawyer. She Haas Talked With Legal Aid But I Am Not Confident That They Cannot Help Her Enough. I Would Be So Grateful If Anyone Could Give Me Any Ideas To Help Her. Thank You.
I agree with Glo. If she hasn't done so already, she should contact her local domestic violence agency. Some have lawyers on staff and others can refer to lawyers who will provide divorces pro-bono, or at a reduced rate, a sliding scale, or with payment plans. I work as a counselor at a domestic violence agency and we have lawyers that we can call in favors with.
And don't be too quick to steer her away from legal aid. In our county, our legal aid does a wonderful job with divorces for women who are being abused. They cross train with our agency so that we are trained on legal issues and they are trained on domestic violence issues. It makes them better equipped to go into court and argue for the victim.
Best of luck to your friend and to you as you support her.
