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.

Trouble With A Lawyer?
I Consulted With A Lawyer About Litigation. His Initial Estimation Was $20,000 And 60 Months. So I Paid That Amount To Contract With Him. Seven Months Later He Requested Additional Retainer Of $10,000 Partly Because The Volume Of My E-Mail Evidence Was More Than He Had Expected, And I Paid Him. Four Months Later He Requested Me To Cover Another Cost Of $7,500 For Him To Consult With An Expert, And I Paid Him. After He Received A Report From The Expert, He Advised Me Either To Withdraw Voluntarily Or To Pay $200,000 Or More. Since Then He Has Not Given Any Answers To My Questions. Are There Any Other Options?
Litigation is expensive. When you retain a lawyer, they will make an "estimate" of the time required to work on your case. The initial $20,000 was based on his hourly rate times the number of hours to review, file, pleadings, depositions and in court. The addle $10,000 for the numerous e-mails could be expected and also for the $7,500 for the expert, since they never do this for free.
But,,,after he got the experts report back, now he wants you to withdraw voluntarily, which sounds like your case is not winnable, so wants out.
To go from $30,000 to now $200,000 more does bear some questions that he needs to answer. Does he need to hire more lawyers to handle this, since this is so complicated, he needs help and cant do alone? Is it for more experts?
"Technically" he must continue to represent you, till you either fire the lawyer or w/draw from this case.
If you feel he did not represent you correctly or question some of the things he has done, then you can file a complaint with the supreme court in the state where you live. The site will have a place where they will have a form to fill out on your complaint.
NO lawyer can tell you if you will win a case, since many times many factors can come into play, that could affect the outcome of your case. But,,,,many lawyers can tell you if they "believe" it is winnable or not, and if after this point, he realizes, your case is most likely a loser, suggest you stop the flow of money.

When It Comes To Drunk Driving Why Is This?
My Friend Was Caught Drunk Driving For The Second Time ( Here In Michigan ) And Got 90 Days. Another Friend Has Been Caught 4 Times In 6 Years And Has Not Done One Day In Jail. One Is Rich. ( Family Rich ) The Other Is Poor. The Poor Man Goes To Jail And The Rich Man Stays Out Of Jail Because He Hires A High Price Attorney And Has Big Powerful Money To Stay Out Of Jail. The Rich Guys Laughs At The Police When He Sees Them In A Restaurant And Says &Quot; Here I Am And Look! I Still Have My Drivers Lic&Quot;. So Why Is It If You Have Big Bucks You Can Stay Out Of Jail And Keep Driving But It You Make 10 Dollars An Hour You Go To Jail.
It wouldn't surprise me if the "money handling" issue is true. It happens here (florida) too. All the time really. It is sad. Rich people can kill just as many people driving drunk as poor people can. What is the difference?! Maybe your rich friend needs to spend some of that $$$ on AA meetings and quit getting so many DUI's. Either way, tell them both good luck.
Attorney Question About Felony Warrant? Military Member?
First Off I'M Doing This On A Cellphone So I Apologize If Anything Is Messed Up. I Just Got A Brady Background Check The Other Day, Come To Find Out I Have A Bogus Felony Warrant For Rape. I Believe My Ex-Girlfriend Is Trying To Screw My Life Up Because She Found Out That I Got Married. Apparently The Case Was Opened In Sep 2010, On Jan 20, 2012 There Was A Bench Warrant Placed On Me. I'M Not Sure Why It Took So Long For A Warrant, I Think Its Kinda Strange. During Sep 2010 I Was In A Relationship With My Ex-Gf, (Nothing But Consensual Sex) So I'M Not Sure Whats Going On Here. I Broke It Off With Her Because She Was A Nutcase. The Girl Went On A Jealous Rampage When She Found Out I Was Dating Someone Else. So I Assume She Filed A Rape Charge Against Me.
I'M Not Sure What To Do Now. I'M In The Navy And I Haven'T Told My Commanders About The Charge Yet. I Don'T Want To Go To Jail For Something I Didn'T Do. I Have A 25K Bond, And I Live In A Different State. What Should I Do? Btw An Attorney Would Cost $10,000 I Don'T Have That Much. If I End Up Having To Get A Lawyer Can I Counter Sue Her For The After I Get The Charges Dropped?
Here Is Other Credibility Information On This Crazy Chick.
During The Past Two Years The Girl Has Had Two Kids With Two Different People.
Oct-2010 She Went To Jail For Assault On Me.
New Years Eve 2011 My Wife And I Were Getting Drinks At A Country Club, She Came Up To Her And Punched Her In The Face. Charged With Assault.
Also I Have Multiple Facebook Messages From November, 2010 With Her Begging Me To Come Back To Her. Why Would She Want The Person That Supposedly Raped Her To Come Back To Her? Hmmm?
Thank You For Your Answers!
call the state attorney where the charges were filed and forward them all of those messages and other evidence.
all that stuff exonerates you because why would she be contacting you if you raped her
but the best thing to do is to get a cheaper attorney that will just advise you on what direction to take, because this girl might be trying to trick you, she could just be trying to contact you so you go back to the state she is in so the cops can arrest you
Small Claims Legal Advice Needed For A Matter With A Subleaser?
Forgot To Mention -- I Was Not Allowed To Have The Electricity Shut Off Because I Was Not The Owner Of The Property.
For a small claims suit, you will have to file in the county where the property is located, so you will have to travel back to the area once the court date is set, then even if you get a judgment that is not the end of it, you will have to then take that judgment and find her assets if she has any to attach, this can be a tedious process at best, and she maybe what the law calls judgment proof i.e. no assets then no monies to collect
Remember judgment is the easy part collection is the hard part, so you will have to weigh the time and effort to sue this woman versus the potential of not being able to collect on the judgment esp. if she is not paying the rent
You can ask for court fees but it’s up to the judge to award it, and no you do not get monies for missing work to sue the person, not sure about other expenses related to the suit it may part of doing business so to speak
But once again the main thing you must consider is, can I even collect on the judgment? Or are you throwing good money after bad

Get an attorney.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
