4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need an attorney at all, you must work closely together to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information the other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they should enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or even be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with just about any crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

What Does A Family Attorney Actually Do?
I Want To Be A Lawyer When I Grow Up. I Don'T Know If I Can Handle The Pressure Of A Murder Case. Yeah I Know Lawyers Are Pressured In All Types Of Cases. I Want To Work With Families. I Want To Help Parents Get Their Kids And Make Sure They Have A Fair Share On Weeks And Weekends. I Want To Settle Out Divorces. I Think Divorce Is A Horrible Thing To Happen To A Family. I Have A Lot Of Friends Whose Parents Are Divorced And It Makes Me Sad To Hear Them Wish Either Parent Was Around. Most Of Them Aren'T Because Of Domestic/Child Abuse, The Marriage Just Didn'T Work Out Anymore. But If It Was Because Of Domestic/Child Abuse I Would Want To Handle That Too.
Is There A Specific Attorney Name Or Is It Just A Family Attorney. Also Is Their Pay Just As Good? Will A Afford A Benz? Lol
First of all, very few lawyers represent people charged with murder. So unless you plan to become a high powered defense attorney and take on big bear cases like that you will never even touch a murder case in your entire career, even as a criminal defense attorney.
And to be honest, I actually believed that criminal defense clients were easier to deal with than family law clients. Criminal law clients were always much more appreciative, whereas a lot of nasty divorce case clients are so jaded by their love gone sour dispute, that they are unreasonable and difficult to reason with. Many will just want to litigate forever and nit pick every little thing just to try and punish their ex. This also harms their children, if they have any, and they get caught in the middle. But because they are so jaded, they don't even think about that, and don't want to listen to anybody's advice to knock it off. And it is not like the only lawyers are criminal defense or family law attorneys. There are a ton of different practice areas you could go into other than those.
And family attorneys do not represent people for domestic child abuse. If you wanted to do that, you would be a criminal prosecutor, because child abuse is a crime. If you choose to become a criminal prosecutor, you are a state employee, you do not get to pick your cases. They are assigned to you, although you can get into a niche, and they may assign you primarily certain types of cases. You also cannot do any legal work on the side if you are a prosecutor. If a prosecutor did that, they could be disbarred. So you would have to pick and choose which one you would rather, and if you choose to be a prosecutor, you got to be hired by a DA's office. DA positions have actually become very competitive to get these days, so that isn't a for sure bet, but you can increase the likelihood by doing internships, and working in the courthouse and try to network, etc.
As far as I know, family law salaries can vary significantly depending on how hard you work, how many clients you have, possibly how wealthy they are, and thus how much they are willing to pay for your services, but it all depends, like most areas of law.

Divorce Without Lawyers???
My Husband And I Are Ready To Get Divorced (We Lived Seperate For Two Years) And Have Two Children, We A Pretty Much On The Same Page On Everything.
My Question Is If I Have The Right To Take Him Back To Court To Modify Child Support If His Income Increases Later On (Which Will Most Likley Happen). Or If I Will Be Stuck With The Agreement We Make At This Point? Also What Would Be My Rights If I Find Out He Was Hiding Assets During The Time Of Our Agreement?
You need a lawyer. I'm sorry but when it comes to kids his "word" will never be good enough. He may be an awesome dad, who loves his kiddos, but if he loves them HE will insist on a lawyer. You may think you are on the same page, but one little thing can throw that into the wind and then where will you be. Get a lawyer. It doesn't have to be nasty. You are just protecting them...and you. This is especially important if you think he's hiding assets. This tells me that some part of you doesn't trust him now. Why would you second guess your gut?

Do All Lawyers Make A Lot?
What About An Immigration Lawyer?
Immigration law is one of the specialties with the lowest average incomes, but that doesn't mean that there aren't lawyers making a very good living from a successful immigration practice. There are also lawyers running pro-bono shopfront clinics for minimum wage illegals in West LA or South Houston who aren't earning much more than their clients.
Just to edit CJ's comment about lawyers in public service.....
In my county a prosecutor (Deputy DA I) starts at about $55k a year, and caps out at about $130k a year (Deputy DA III), and a Public Defender (Deputy PD I) starts out at about $62k a year, and caps out at $145k (Deputy PD III)
Traffic Attorney Good Or Bad Idea?
I Have Gotten A Ticket For Going 15 Over Yesterday And I Have Heard About Gettin Traffic Attorneys Are Good Ways To Deal With Tickets.
I Contacted A Local One And They Said Their Price For My Circumstance Would Be $150 And Thats For Them To Take Care Of All The Paperwork And Represent Me In Court.
Is This A Good Idea? Are There Any Other Fees That Could Be Charged Im Not Aware Of?
Also I Have Taken Drivers Ed Over A Year Ago. Am I Eligible To Take It Again In The State Of Texas?
They Didn'T Write An Amount On The Ticket, But From What I Figured They Would Charge Me About $200 Not Including The Court Fee And Then There Is The Insurance Raise.
I Just Want To Spend As Little Money As Possible. Seeing As I Am A College Student And Out Of Work.
Any Other Good Ways To Deal With This Would Be Much Appreciated!
The $150 goes to the Attorney.
You will also have to pay a fine (usually the same or slightly higher) than you would have paid anyway.
In exchange, the court will change the nature of the violation so you don't get points on your license. This saves you money in the long run, but costs cash up front.
