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.

Business Studies To Become A Lawyer?
Umm, Well I Want To Become A Lawyer, And I Said I Wanted To Do Business Studies For My Gcse. My Sister Said It Was Important To Be A Lawyer, And Almost Every Person That Didn'T Take Business Studies Wish They Did It... Is It That Important?! =O
Business is a good major for any field, legal or otherwise. If you don't have a business major, at least a business minor would be a big help.
Most people I know who go to law school were either business or history majors.
Are Lawyers In Canada Subject To Regular Drug Testings?
I'M Looking To Become A Lawyer But I Smoke Marijuana And I Was Wondering If Lawyers In Canada Have To Go Through Regular Drug Screenings.
And If They Do, How Often?
No. There's no required drug screening. It is conceivable that, if you ended up in disciplinary proceedings, conditions on continued practice could include drug screenings (specifics would vary by Province), but this is not the default scenario - essentially, until somebody has a reason to believe that you're on drugs and they're causing a problem, there would not be any such tests.
About the other answerer saying that a Court can order it for no reason...no. Firstly, Courts don't typically concern themselves overly with disciplining lawyers. That isn't to say that a judge won't call out a lawyer who isn't all there - most often it's alcohol-related - but the judge will do so without feeling the need to order a test. It would be arguable as to whether or not a Canadian judge has the power to order such a test even with reasonable and probable grounds, but even if it could be ordered - by a judge or by the Provincial Law Society - it would most certainly not be something that could be ordered with "no reason". That would raise serious Charter issues.
In the employment context, it's a little different. Employers can, under certain circumstances, require employees to undergo drug testing. But that's contractual in nature; an employee is entitled to refuse, though - in the situations where the employer is so entitled - that would be just cause for dismissal. A judicial order to undergo a test is not something that can be declined (thus, there would be tests to be satisfied under the Charter before such an order could be made), and there's no proviso in any Provincial Law Society's regulations that I've seen for administrative random drug testing as a condition of maintaining one's license. I could envision a Law Society making it a condition of continued practice that lawyers submit for random drug testing (this avoids the Charter concerns by offering a way out)...but such a provision simply isn't there, and if it weren't truly random, then a duty of fairness would apply in the decision-making process leading up to the testing, which is why "no reason" is absolutely out.
Frankly, you wouldn't be the only one. Alcohol does tend to be a lawyer's demon of choice, but when I was in law school I played on a softball team with other law students, several of whom would periodically vanish during at-bats and come back with a rather distinct scent on them...suffice it to say we weren't a highly competitive team.
I'M Looking For An Online Database Regarding Lawyers?
Is There A Website Where I Can Look Up Lawyers That Will Tell Me Whether Or Not They Are Good? Like Maybe A Public Records Search Of Their Cases, So I Can Review Their Performance And Determine Whether Or Not I Should Retain Their Services?
Yeah, Martindale has a AV rating for lawyers. Probably the best site if you are looking for ratings. Link below..

Ive Called Children Protective Services And Nothing, Even After My 9 Year Old Has Told Them Things. Please Help...Feel Free To Email Me..Thank You
You need to consult an attorney licensed to practice in West Virginia. As was suggested earlier, try the Legal Aid office, and also consider contacting the law school there in West Virginia. Many law schools offer free legal clinics where 3rd year law students, under the supervision of licensed attorneys, provide legal advice and assistance to those unable to pay.
If that doesn't work, you will have to retain the services of a private attorney. It will be expensive, but the price is worth it.. after all, your children are worth it aren't they?
For a referral, contact your local or state bar association.
Need Legal Advice For Ebay Transaction. Privacy Is Invaded- Please Help?
I Once Sold An Item On Ebay. I Soon Found Out That I Was Out Of Stock And Notified The Purchaser And Returned His/Her Money Promptly. About Two Weeks Later I Was Able To Find The Same Product And Put It On As An Auction Again. This Bidder That Previously Bought The Item Contact Me And Said They Would Bid On My New Item To The Max To Win It Then Would Pay The Original Price From Last Time Via Message. I Quickly Blocked That Bidder And Erased His Bids. He Created New Accounts And Again Bid On My Item Again. I Canceled Those Bids Too.
After The Auction Ended....And He Didn'T Win The Item, So I’M Guessing He Was Upset.
He Located My Phone Number And Has Been Calling From Private Non-Stop. He Messaged Me On Facebook And Is Complaining About This Item That I Didn'T Have In Stock. Pretty Much I Feel That He Has Invaded My Privacy And Don'T Know How Much He Knows About Me.
I Believe His Actions Are Not Correct. What Can I Do To Stop Him Of Doing This And Continuing These Acts Other Than Finding Another Of This Item And Selling It To Him?
Legally Is There Anything I Can Do?
Can I Message Him Scaring Him In Any Certain Way Because I Don'T Know What He May Know. I'M Pretty Sure He Knows Where I Live Too.
When he won the auction on eBay you and he had a valid contract for you to sell him a specific item for a specific price. He fulfilled his side of the contract by paying you. You then violated the contract by not shipping him the item.
Now, you went ahead and refunded his money, but that's not necessarily the end of it. Let's say you agreed to sell him a widget for $50. After you breached the contract he was only able to find the same widget for $60. Your breach of contract has cost him $10. In theory he could successfully sue you in small claims court for that $10. Is he "likely" to do so? Probably not, but that does not change the fact that you ARE legally in the wrong.
That the widget is available now for $60 from YOU, when YOU breached the contract to sell it to him for $50 just makes it worse.
What he is doing by repeatedly phoning you etc is not illegal. YOU breached the contract, and caused him financial damage - having to pay more for the widget - by doing so. He is perfectly within his rights to take all legal methods to try to enforce his contract and get you to fulfill your legally binding obligation.
This is no different from me going into a store, seeing a gallon of milk for $3.99, taking it to the register and handing the clerk the money, and her handing it back and saying "No, today it's going to cost you $4.99".
The person who quoted the law about "annoying telephone calls" is missing the point. You have a LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT with him. It is not harassment for him to try to enforce it.
Incidentally, not only are you in breach of your contract with the buyer, you are in breach of the eBay terms and conditions, as well.....
"While using eBay sites, services and tools, you will not:
...fail to deliver items purchased from you, unless the buyer fails to meet the posted terms,
...manipulate the price of any item"
By not shipping it you violated the first rule I've quoted, and by now offering to sell it to him for more than he already won it for you are violating the second one.
Asbestos Lawyers Taking My Money?
I Have Had Asbestos Case With These Ga. Lawyers For 20Yrs. On My Husband (Died Asbestosis)And Cancer Everywhere. He Was 35Yrs.Old Then. They Have Given Some Money, And Said The Rest Are In Bankrupt. The Checks I Got Did Not Have A Company Name Except Where The Law.Office Had Printed. I Want To See The Original Checks They Deducted My Money From. His Secretary Told Me I Was Getting $40 To $50 Thousand March 1991, Promised, I Might Have Gotten 15 In All From Different Com.? Through The Yrs.I Am In Tenn.He Is In Ga. I Just Want To Know If I Have Been Taken Advantage Of Or How Can I Find Out.
yes you have...You have know way of knowing how many checks or how much money the companies have paid your lawyers. You will never see all of the checks. They will only show you the checks that they have deducted there 33% from. You have probably been shafted for about 35 to 45 thousand. You need to get another lawyer that you trust. He will have to uncover the case with your other lawyer. This will cost you another 33% but might get you a few thousand dollars. It will be hard to find a lawyer to take on another lawyer!! Sorry, sounds like you should have picked a better attorney!
