4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want an attorney at all, you should work closely along with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're likely to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're planning to reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most especially information another side could learn about 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 data they need to assist them to win. 3. Arrive Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. In fact, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

How Do I Find A Depakote Lawyer?
My Sister Took The Epilepsy Medicine Depakote For Nearly 15 Years In Her Early Twenties - Back Then She Didn'T Realize There Could Be A Risk Of Birth Defects If She Took It While She Was Pregnant. There Was No Warning On The Box And Her Doctor Didn'T Tell Her Anything. Anyways, My Neice Now Has Lots Of Health Issues That We Are Hearing Might Be Because Of The Depakote That My Sister Took. How Do I Find A Lawyer That Specializes In These Types Of Cases? I Live In A Small Town And We Don'T Have A Lot Of Stuff Near Us.
There are some resources out there for people looking for more information on Depakote attorneys or class action lawsuits for Depakote. This issue is really big in the UK right now and is gaining traction in the US. You can get more information on the types of claims that people are trying to make against the manufacturer and how to move forward on some reputable sites.
One that I have seen recently in the news is called Depakote Birth Injury Resources - their website is http://www.depakotebirthinjury.com
Is Finders Fee Illegal?
I Had About 30 Brokers, Agents, And Investors Keep Telling Me And Another Friend That Finders Fee Is Illegal Especially Without A License. I Never Heard Of A Finders Fee License. My Friend Told A Seller That He Can Find A Buyer To Buy His Property For 1% Of What The Price Is. The Seller Agreed. Now That Is When We Started Getting Messages Like That. I Have Called A Attorney In My State And 2 Other States To See What They Had To Say. They All Said That It Is Legal, There Is No Problem With It Because There Is Nothing Illegal For Giving Info To Another Person And Asking For A Percentage If The Deal Goes Through. All Said About The Same Thing. What Does Every One Else Have To Say?
What your friend is proposing sounds an awful lot like what a realtor does for a seller. Part of a realtor's job is to find a willing and able buyer to buy the property.
The people are telling you that you are on thin ground legally and that job is usually done by a licensed realtor and that you need a reator's license to arrange a deal like this.
I think either what you are proposing is illegal or you have done a really poor job of describing what your friend is going to do for the seller. How does it differ from what a realtor does? Are these 'services' in lieu of a realtor or in addition to a realtor?
Going To College For Family Law?
So I Want To Go To College And Be Like A Family Attorney But When I Look At The Categories, Which One Do I Want To Pick? Civil Law Etc.? When I Say College I Mean The Basic Colleges. Just Fyi.
If you are in the US you must earn a bachelors degree before even applying to law school, you must have a law degree to be a lawyer of any type. You can get your bachelors degree in any major that you want.
Family law is civil law, anything not criminal is civil. Regardless, right now you just need to choose a major that interest you (avoid pre law which is not required) and is challenging.
Then note that you do not specialize in law school, you just take a bunch of courses on different subjects and specialize by getting a job in the area you want to practice after you have taken the bar exam, in your case family law.
How Do You Become A Prosecuting Attorney?
See I Want To Become A Prosecuting Attorney And I Am In Freshman Year Of High School Right Now... I Need To Know What I Have To Do In High School And College To Become A Great Prosecuting Attorney... Also Can You Guys Tell Me What Colleges Are Good To Go To?
Thanks In Advance
Usually, the job of prosecuting attorney is an elected position. However, the prosecutor generally hires deputy prosecutors to handle the majority of the cases. For the most part, these are experienced criminal lawyers. My recommendation would be to
1. Go to college and major in pre-law with a minor in Criminal Justice or other field.
2. Go to law school and try to distinguish yourself as much as you can.
3. Get a job with a firm that specializes in criminal defense.
4. Work hard and learn all you can about criminal law.
5. Apply for a position as a deputy prosecutor.
There are lots of good law schools. Harvard probably has the best reputation, but, the school is not as important, in the lost run, as your efforts.
Would You Get A Lawyer If You Get Hurt Seriously On The Job?
My Husband Completely Shattered His Ankle. Now He Needs Pins And Plates In His Leg. I Know Each State Varies On Laws And Regulations. What Would You Do? And Besides That The Company Has Laid Off Most Of Their Nurse Case Managers And Now He Just Had A Case Manager. Is This Normal For A Serious Type Of Injury? He Has To Have An Ankle Replacement. We Live In The State Of Arizona.
I would go to a legal directory and contact maybe a dozen lawyers. Find some that offer free consultations and use the free consultation from each lawyer to get more information. This way you can get the opinion of multiple attorneys for free, and by the time you finish with the 3rd or 4th lawyer you will have a great idea of your options and what you should do. I know employers treat this kind of situation carefully but almost always try to screw you (in my opinion).

Wisconsin Family Court Question Primary Placement?
I Could Give A Lot Of Detail Here But In An Effort To Keep It Simple I Will Just Talk About The Basics. My Ex And I Divorced In 2005, At That Time I Had Agreed For My Son To Live With Her Because I Believed It Would Be Better For Him To Remain With His Half Brother. (She Had A Child From Previous Relations) She Married The Guy She Was Cheating With Barely 6 Mos After Our Divorce. In Short The Guy Is A Terrible Provider. My Son Moved About 5 Times And Probably Went To 5 Different Schools During The Time He Was With Her. This Was Due To Her Dumb *** Husband Not Being Able To Hold A Job And Pay The Bills. In October Of 2009 He Left The State To &Quot;Look Into A Job&Quot; He Took Off To Arizona With Her Having Little Knowledge Of It. She Was Then Evicted From There Rented Property For Rent Not Paid. She Was Basically Homeless With 4 Kids. (She Had 2 More With Him). She Basically Ended Up Staying With Friends For Nearly 6 Mos. To Her Credit She Agreed To A Stipulated Change Of Placement, Changing Primary Placement To Me. (For My Son) In About February Of 2010 She Went To Live In Arizona. For Some Time They Literally Were Living In A Camper. Her Husband Went Through Many Jobs Until In The Summer Of 2011 They Put What They Could In There Car Leaving Everything Else Behind Including A Couple Dogs, And Left In The Middle Of The Night For Wisconsin. Supposedly He Could Not Find Work In Az. Once Back In Wisconsin He Never Found Work Either. In Short They Spent 3 Mos Shacking Up With Friends Before Once Again They Took Off Back To Arizona Because He Supposedly Had A Job Offer. (Just Some Info On The Jack***, He Wont Do Anything That Doesn'T Involve Driving.) Turns Out He Ended Up Driving A Taxi When They Got Back. In Any Case To My Knowledge They Are Now Living In A 2 Bedroom Trailer Home (2 Adults And 3 Kids). Now She Seems To Be Telling My Son She Wants To Get Him Down There Over The Summer. Right Before They Decided To Come Back In 2011 I Was Almost Going To Make Arrangements But It Is Very Obvious To Me There Is No Stability There. Somehow Or Another They Are Now Running Some Sort Of Taxi Service. Knowing Her Husband He Is Probably Doing It Illegally. Like I Said Before He Wont Do Anything That Doesn'T Involve Driving. Id Would Almost Bet That They Will Crash And Burn Before Too Long.
Getting To The Point Here, When We Divorced We Never Had An Actual Visitation Agreement Or Order. It Was Simply Reasonable Time And Notice. That Always Worked Fine When She Was In Wisconsin But 2000 Miles Away Doesn'T Make That So Workable. When We Signed The Stipulated Change Of Placement No Visitation Agreement Was Put Into Place. I Would Also Ad That She Has Paid Me No Child Support Since He Came To Live With Me. The Reason Why Is I Did Not Ask For It, She Was Basically Homeless At The Time And Had 3 Other Kids To Care For. I Am A Person Who Believed Just Cause Something Is Legal To Do Doesnt Make It Morally Corect. To This Day However She Has Not Even Made An Offer To Pay Support. In Fact She Sent My Son A Birthday Card This Year With $20.00 And It Was The Only Thing He Has Ever Really Gotten From Her.
Bottome Line Here Is I Dont Feel It Is A Safe Enviroment For My Son To Be In Down There. I Have Also Had Him In Counseling Where He Had Told The Counselor About Her Husband Being Physically Abusive To Him. Another Reason I Dont Want Him There. I Am Also Quite Sure That If She Got Him There That In August When He Would Have To Come Back That She Would Claim To Not Have The Money To Send Him Back And Try To Put Him In School Down There.
I Know Ive Gave A Lot Of Info Here But Ultimately My Question Is Do Have A Legal Standing O Prevent Him From Going There? Again We Do No Have A Visitation Order So I Would Assume There Is Nothing She Could Try And Inforce. I Would Also Assume She Would Have To File In Wisconsin Court To Get A Visitation Order And Then Get It Inforced. This Is A Rough Situation For Me, I Wan My Son To Be In Contact With His Mother But I Feel She Should Come Up To See Him Given The Situation. Even With That I Am A Little Worried That If She Came Up That She Wouldnt Try To Take Off With Him. I Would Assume Though That Would Be Kidnapping Under Law Because I Have Primary Placement. At The Least It Would Be Interfering With A Placement Order.
I Know This Is Long But If Anyone Could Give Me Some Factual Information I Would Greatly Apreciate It. If Anyone Has Further Questions, Ill Do My Best To Answer Them.
Thanks In Advance.
he court that has jurisdiction is Wisconsin because that is where the child resides. She should have contacted you about visitation first (your agreement is reasonable time and reasonable notice) instead of going to your son and making an assumption that it was okay for him to spend the summer in Arizona. That put your son in a situation that he should have never been put in and the courts won't like that. I assume that you've never disagreed on visitation before which is really amazing so this is new ground for you.
You have every right to talk to her and negotiate. She has no order in place stating that she can just pick up the kid and take him to another state. She made the choice to move away from him.
I would recommend that you talk to her and negotiate with her first if at all possible, explain to her your concerns and tell her you would be willing to allow her to see your son but she needs to come to Wisconsin. (She has friends she can stay with). I would also involve the boy's counselor if he is still seeing a therapist to get her professional opinion on what is in the best interest of the child.
If she just decides to take the child and keep him in Arizona I don't believe it would be considered kidnapping since it is not clear who has legal custody of the child. If you had sole custody, yes, but it sounds like you two just agreed the boy would live with you. I assume that you then have joint custody so she has a legal right to make decisions on his behalf too.
If I were in your position, after I spoke to my ex and tried to resolve it between us, I would initiate a modification of your custody agreement to include a visitation plan based on a substantial change in circumstances such as being in your primary custody and her move so far away. Get something in writing. You can bring up the issue of child support if you want. You can even threaten her that this will be the next step if she doesn't agree to your terms (but I wouldn't recommend it).
You have a strong case for keeping the boy in Wisconsin. Courts don't like to move kids around. You can clearly give him more stability. She should have visitation but it should be in writing so you can take her to court if the boy is abused or if she refuses to return him.
