4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need an attorney for any excuse, you need to work closely together so that you can win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed below are four important ways to help your legal team enable 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 everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, whenever. In fact, because you might need to discuss last second details or be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's a good 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 in order to prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and they are making strides toward improving your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

How Can Dishonest Lawyers Get Away With Stealing People'S Land?
I Know Someone (Person A) Who Had A 'Handshake Agreement' With Person B (A 'Friend' Of Person A) That Was Supposedly A Loan. Person A Did Sign A Document Believing That It Spelled Out The Conditions Of Repayment Of The Loan. After A Made Payments To B For Many Years, B Claimed The Land As His Own And Claimed That The Payments Were Actually Rental Payments. Years Of Court Battles Followed Until A Just Gave Up (He Was Old And Tired).
Also, During Wwii My Mother'S First Husband Was Killed In Fighting, Leaving Her The Sole Parent Of 2 Children. Somehow A Lawyer Cheated Her Out Of Her Home.
On What Legal Ground Do Some Lawyers Do Things Like This? On What Legal Basis Would They Draw Proceedings Out Even If They Have No Legal Claim On The Land?, Do They Have Any Real Legal Standing Or Do They Just Take Advantage Of The Fact That Some People Are Vulnerable And Can'T Fight For Long, If At All?
Person A thinks B is a crook; Person B thinks A is a crook. Because A lost, the attorney is now the crook. The attorney's role is to represent the client to the best of his ability. The attorney does not know for sure who is right. How could he? If the attorney's client told the truth, and no legal basis exists to dispute the other party's claim, the vast majority of attorneys would drop the case. Of course, there are exceptions.
The problem with your argument is you assume: (1) the attorney knows the truth; and; (2) even knowing the truth, no legal basis exists for the claim. In any event, nothing you have stated indicates dishonesty by the attorney.
*** Ok, lets assume the lawyer is a crook. Does the judge know that the lawyer is a crook? In the vast majority of cases, both sides call each other crooks. There is no smoking gun. Instead, you have two sides telling their story. Their story is testimony. Testimony is evidence. Winning is simply having the fact finder (judge or jury) believe the facts as you present them or finding a convincing legal argument.
Anyway, your question is loaded. A dishonest lawyer or client would not win. If dishonesty is established, then the lawyer is sanctioned and the client loses the case. However, first you have to establish that the lawyer or client is dishonest. How do you do that? Without an admission by the dishonest party, dishonesty generally cannot be established.
All evidence conflicts - that doesn't prove dishonesty. Language is inherently ambiguous. A misunderstanding or misstatement doesn't prove dishonesty. While you cast things in black & white, the reality is that even honest people can't get their story straight. Dishonesty can rarely be proven and that is why dishonest people win.
Can You Recommend Florida Probate Attorney With Reasonable Fees?
Have Spoken To A Couple That Seemed Pricey, If Anyone Has Had Experience With A Competent Attorney Who Charges Modest Fees In Florida I'D Appreciate A Recommendation.
Decedent Lived In St. Lucie County But Hearings Should Not Be Required So While I'D Like St. Lucie County Recommendations I'D Also Appreciate Recommendations For Lawyers Across The State.
Probate fees are provided by Florida Statute. Depending on the size of the estate, you should be quoted fees that are close. Estimate 3% of the PROBATED estate will be for attorney fees. In addition, you may have extra-ordinary fees incurred. Of course you can agree to higher or lower attorney fees.
You can get referrals from local bar and the web. Also try a Florida virtual law firm.
Motorcycle Accident - Injury Settlement?
Since I Have Never Been In An Accident, I Am Not Sure What To Expect So I Need Your Help.
A Car Behind Me Hit Me And I Was Thrown Off My Motorcycle. Although I Was Able To Get Up And Did Not Want Or Need To Go To The Emergency Room, I Am Now Feeling It - The Soreness Especially In My Neck, Shoulders, And Back.
A Claim Was Made With An Insurance Company And Thankfully The Other Driver'S Insurance Will Cover All Expenses To Repair My Motorcycle. The Insurance Agent Asked If There Were Any Injuries And I Informed Them That I Was Not Taken To The Emergency Room But That I Plan To Go To The Doctor To Get A Check-Up.
They Made Me An Offer Of Paying My Medical Bills For The Check Up Along With A $500 For The Inconvenience.
Now This Is Where I Need Help -
Some People Have Advised That $500 Is Basically An Insult And That I Should Have Requested For A Better Offer Because My Life Was Endangered And I Was Thrown Off My Motorcycle.
Is This The Best Settlement I Can Get? Should I Have Gotten Or Expected More?
Please Advise - Thanks In Advance.
If you don't want your life to be "endangered" then don't ride motorcycles. The insurance company and the other driver don't owe you for that. You also can't be paid because you "could have died".
They owe you for your actual damages and will give you a little something for pain and suffering. If your only medical bill is a check with your family dr, a prescription or 2 and a few days of soreness - then $500 plus your meds is a good settlement. A visit with your family doc is about $100-$125. Prescriptions usually less than $50. So, $500 for pain and suffering for $175 in bills is not an insult at all. Who ever told you that is an idiot.
There is nothing wrong with telling the company that you want to see how you feel in another 2 weeks. That way, you can take a couple of weeks and see how you feel then. If you're feeling better then go ahead and settle. If you're still having to see the dr, ask them to follow back up with you in another 30 days.
If you are still treating, the insurance company will just continue to follow up with you every 30-60 days - to see how you are feeling and whats going on with your treatment. When you're ready to settle do so.
If your bills are more than a check out then the insurance company will have to have you sign a medical authorization. That form will allow the insurance company to order copies of your medical bills/records. When you are done treating the company orders the bills/records. Once it comes in, they evaluate the information and make an offer. You can accept the offer or counter offer. It's a negotiation. Once you reach an agreement - the company has you sign a release that ends your claim once and for all. In exchange you get the agreed upon amount.
Just call the adjuster and have a conversation with them about the situation and any concerns you have.

Does Any Know An Good Traffic Lawyer In Philadelphia?
I Have 3000$ Worth Of Traffic Tickets And I'M Looking For A Good Traffic Lawyer To Chop It Down
Since you are looking only to get a lawyer to chop it down, I assume you are actually guilty of the violations. If so, it may not be worth hiring a lawyer. If you have no defense to the tickets, they aren't likely to take much off the fines. Then, when you add the lawyer's fee back in, you may wind up paying pretty much the same amount anyway.
Now, it would be a different matter if you have a good case that you shouldn't have gotten most of the tickets. If a lawyer can demonstrate that you have a serious defense, then you can probably get the fines reduced significantly, and it makes a lot of sense to hire someone to do that. But if you are just hoping to get a discount on tickets you deserved, save the money you would have paid to a lawyer and work out a payment schedule.
This may not be what you wanted to hear, but I hope it helps.
Immigration Attorney---How Likely Are They To Be Successful?
I'M Very Close With One Of My Older Nieces, Who Is In Her Mid20s. She Has Been Married To A Very Sweet Hispanic Man For 4 Years And They Have 2 Children Together.
He Is Not Legal, And I Think Its So Very Sad Because He Has Very Big Dreams And A Lot Of Talent At Different Things But He Is Unable To Put Them To Use. Hes A Very Hard Worker And Working A Tough Job For Little Money To Help Support His Family....
I Recently Inherited A Large Sum Of Money From My Great-Grandfather, And Was Wondering.......I Know Immgration Attorneys Are Very Expensive. If I Got One For My Nieces Husband, Would That Make It Easier For Him To Be Legal? Or Would I Just Be Throwing My Money Into A Black Hole? Id Love To Make Their Lives More Comfortable And Easy...
Is he a visa overstayer or really illegal? If he is a visa overstayer your niece can (and should have) sponsored him for a greencard long ago. If she doesn't earn enough for the income requirement you could be the financial cosponsor.
If he came illegally into the US he will have to leave at some point and get something called I-601 waiver in order to come back. This is the process where an immigration lawyer is really advisable. If you go for this, you should make sure that whomever you pay has a lot of experience with this particular process. There are chances to get him legal, but it's not guaranteed.
I'd recommend that you and also your niece and husband spend some serious time understanding the legal situation. This can include consulting with one or several immigration lawyers. Some give a free first consult. This should give you a much better idea what is and what should be going on, and it will also allow you to judge the immigration lawyer you choose eventually (not everybody is competent). Look up AILA lawyer, that should give you a shot at finding a decent one.
