4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you need an attorney for any reason, you have to work closely together as a way to win your case. Irrespective of how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're going to reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, whenever. The truth is, because you might need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Texas Eviction Legal Advice?
I Did Not Pay My Landlord Rent In July Because He Refused To Fix A Sewer Leak, Now In August He Is Filing An Eviction Suit For Non Payment Of Rent. My Court Date Is On The Thursday The 21St, My Question Is Since It Has Been Seven Days Since I Have Been Served, Can I Still Go And Request A Trial By Jury? Thank You For Your Help.
I think you should go to a legal aid clinic where they help people with landlord-tenant issues. I have valuable advice for you from personal experience:
1) Do NOT go to court without an attorney, any attorney. There are judges who will decide against you simply for not knowing courtroom protocol.
2) Expect it to be very, very difficult to find a lawyer who practices this kind of law on the tenant side. In Texas, the laws are tilted so far in favor of landlords that almost no lawyers serve tenants because it would be a losing proposition, plus, it's more lucrative on the other side.
3) Ahead of your court date, spend a day in housing court in your county and watch the protocol in action.
4) You might want to go to court with the money for the rent and explain to the judge that you have withheld rent because the landlord refused to make a repair and it is the only recourse you have as a tenant to your knowledge.
5) Find out if there is a department of buildings and structures department with the state government and see if you have recourse to report him for refusing to make the repair.
6) If all else fails, I have an eviction on my record courtesy of the great state of Texas and let me tell you that nobody will rent to you there with an eviction on your record. They flat WON'T; you want to take the consequences of this seriously. Your better bet might be just to pay the guy, report the guy to the dept. of buildings, dept. of health, whatever, and find out if he'll withdraw the suit if you pay him in full. Make sure you get a "yes" from him in writing, then pay him, then get the confirmation from the court that the case has been dismissed without prejudice, then give notice, pack up, and just before you move, report him (possibly to the Atty general's office).
In the short run, try to find a lawyer.
Can I just say that any state in which I am in the wrong for withholding rent if the landlord refuses to make repairs is a state in which I will not live if I can help it. That essentially suggests that all the contractual obligations are on the tenant's end and none on the landlord's end.
What Are Private Adoption Laws In Louisiana.?
It Would Be A Private Adoption, As In The Mother Would Like To Sign Over Her Legal Rights To My Husband And Myself At Birth. She Has Told Us That We Would Legally Be Able To Do This, As Well As Sign The Birth Certificates As Her Biological Parents. I Am Not Sure If This Is Correct And Looking For Advice. We Are Trying To Avoid Large Adoption Costs By Hiring Attorneys And Adoption Agencies. How Can I Protect Myself As The Mother Of This Unborn Child, In The Event That 2 Years After Birth, The Birth Mother Decides She Wants To Change Her Mind. I Would Like To Have All Legal Rights And To Be The One To Make All Decisions In Raising This Child. I Have Told The Birth Mom That We Could Keep It Open And She Could Have As Much Intereaction With The Child As Possible, But I Still Want The Child To Be Protected. The Birth Mother Is Giving Her Up For A Reason And I Want To Make Sure The Child Is Safe And Well Taken Care Of At All Times. Advice Please!
Sorry you were misinformed on several counts.
It is NOT legal for adoptive couples to sign any original birth certificate in any state. That would be a lie, and it would be theft and deception to the child.
Private adoptions does not mean that large profits are not made. In fact, adoption attorneys make tons of money doing what they do. It just doesn't involve an adoption agency and there are less protections in place for all of the parties.
You say this will be an "open" adoption, yet you say you want the child to be "protected." Protected from whom? I hope you do not see the mother as a threat to the child. I'm sure the mother wants the child to be safe and protected at all times too. Would you feel comfortable sharing those thoughts with her? If not, ask yourself why not. That will be very revealing.
You say there is a "reason." Are you sure that reason isn't that she just does not have the resources to keep her family together? Most mothers really do love and want their babies. Is there anything you could do to help her since that would be in the baby and mother's best interests, instead of encouraging her to relinquish?
You make no mention of the child's father, who has rights equal to the mother's. Adoptions may not legally occur unless BOTH parents voluntarily relinquish their parental rights. One parent may not sign away the rigths for both parents, only for their own.
To proceed legally, you must follow the law every step. Original birth certificates always contain the information detailing the true facts of the birth. That means the parents are the legal parents until relinquishment papers are signed by both of them. Do not think of this as your child until that event happens. If it does, then you need to petition the court to adopt. You need to already have an approved home study completed. Then you need to wait 6-12 months until you can go to court again to try to have it finalized.
Other advice - If for some reason, you cannot adopt this baby, think of it as a good thing for the child. It's one less child who had to be unnecessarily separated from their family. There are many children whose parents' rights have already been terminated. They are already waiting for new homes. You will find them waiting in foster care. There will be little cost or wait once you have been approved to adopt. Hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
reunited adult adoptee
ETA - A few more notes after your last comment
(which was cut off before you finished):
You mentioned her rights have been terminated for her other children. Social workers usually try to place siblings together in the same home whenever possible because that is what is best for them. Parents are given a period of time to complete a court-ordered program to improve their conditions so that their families can be reunited. Does this mother need a drug treatment program or to address another issue first so that she could safely parent again? Perhaps a temporary foster care or temp legal guardianship arrangement could benefit them instead of a permanent adoption?
Hormones change during pregnancy. What a woman thinks she might feel now can totally change once her baby is here. That's the maternal instinct, nature's way of assuring that mothers will nurture their babies with love. All mothers and babies deserve a chance to be alone together before any decision can be made to tell them goodbye. If she does not see her baby, she will live to regret that. A decision need not be made right at birth. In fact, depending on your state, there may be a minimum of X number of days required first. There is no maximum. Thank you for encouraging them to take as much time as they need first. Adoption is nothing to rush into. I agree with you that I cannot think of anything worse than losing a child, let alone several. Mothers never "get over that." Ask other mothers who have walked in her footsteps. Yes, it's very painful, and it can be for the children as well. Relinquishing is an act of desperation when there are no better options available. Nobody really wants to give away their baby. We do not typically give away those we profess to love. If you do end up adopting, please don't ever tell a child "Your mother loved you so much she gave you away." Every adoptee knows that makes no sense.
When the father is unknown, efforts must be made to contact him before a final decree can be granted, such as an ad must be run in the paper where he was last known to have resided advising him of a possible adoption for his child in the event he does not claim his parental rights. You will still need a lawyer to represent you. Look for one who specializes in family law.
Legal Assistance Needed Guardianship?
Long Story Short, Step Granddaughter- Evil Mother - Refuses To Share Her Financials With The Local College Because She Is Not A Good Mother And Never Has Been. Granddaughter Left Her Mother'S House Just 2 Months Short Of Her 18Th Birthday. She Now Lives With Her Maternal Grandmother But, To Get Into College She Either Has To Be Emancipated Or A Legal Adult, They Will Just Not Accept That She Has No Financial Support From Her Mother. I'M Thinking One Of Us Need To Go To Court And Become Her Legal Guardian. But Really Don'T Know How To Get Around This One.
If she is now 18, you can't unless she is mentally incompetent. I'm surprised, if she is 18, that they won't let her apply to college. If she is still a minor, it will still take more than two months and it will expire when she turns 18.
However, for the FAFSA, the assumption is that the parents will support her until she is 24, whether or not they are willing to. That's a federal requirement.
But there are scholarships that do not require a FAFSA. Some of them are specific to the college and some are various groups who offer scholarships. She should contact the financial aid office of the college for advice and get a book on scholarships from the local library and apply for any that she qualifies for. There are thousands.
She can go to college part time and work her way through - community college is cheapest.

This sounds like a personal injury case.
Rather than call someone you don't know, ask friends and co-workers for suggestion for an attorney. Ideally, you will find someone (or a friend of a friend) who has successfully sued someone else for personal injury. This kind of referral is better than cold-calling a law firm you know nothing about.
Also, keep the evidence (the piece of paper) and medical records. Get the contact information for any witnesses.
What is most likely to happen, as it sounds like there was no serious injury, is that a lawyer will write to McDonald's about the case and McDonald's will offer you a settlement (an amount of money) so they don't have to pay still MORE money to get their own lawyers involved.
