4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want an attorney for any excuse, you should work closely along with them in order to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - particularly information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, every time. In fact, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important in order to convince the legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

As A Homebuyer, Is It Worth Hiring A Real Estate Attorney?
I Asked A Previous Question About Taxes And Escrow And Noticed That A Few Responders Recommended Seeking Advice From A Real Estate Attorney. I'M Still Very Early In The Buying Process For A Home That Would Cost Less Than $200K. From A Cost Perspective, Does It Make Sense To Retain An Attorney? What Are The Advantages?
There are no advantages to contacting an attorney at all. In a few states your closing agent is an attorney. They make sure your documents are in order, but most of the work is done by a paralegal clerk not by the attorney. They make sure that the paper work going to the title company is what the title company need to close the transaction.
You can go direct to a tile company that have their own closing attorneys. This will reduce your closing cost by a small amount.
If you live in a state like California, we rely on escrows to close loans and make sure all documents are in order, the same as an attorney in states that require closing agents to be attorneys. Again you can always go direct to a title company and use their escrow officers within the title company, this might save a few dollars.
You don't need an attorney unless you reside in a state that require an attorney for closing purposes.
I hope this has been of some use to you, good luck.
Commercial Real Estate, I Was Defrauded By The Leasing Agent. How Can I Report Him And Change My Lease?
I Signed A Lease For A Certain Square Footage And A $1 Per Sq Foot.
I Questioned The Size In The Beginning And Was Told Commercial Measurements Are Different From Residential, (I Don'T Know What I Am Talking About) They Measure To The Drip Line And The Guy Measured Again And Was Sure He Was Correct. I Chose The Place For The Size And Now I Am Struggling As I Need About Another 300 Sq Ft (3 Months Into The Lease) I Paid A Commercial Appraisor To Remeasure The Building And I Am 300 Sq Ft Short. I Am Paying For 2300 And Only Have 2000. The Original Leasing Agent Came Back Out And Remeasured The Building And Said He Was About Right, The Lease Says Approx. I Asked To See His Measurements And He Said He Would Email Them To Me And Now He Will Not Return My Calls Or Show Me His Measurements, But Left A Message Saying The Landlord Will Give Me $100 Off The Rent Each Month Thats It, Or I Can Get Out Of My Lease And Move. I Have Spend $1,000'S Of Dollars On Advertising, Signs Etc And If I Move I Do Not Have The Money To Spend Another $10K On All This Stuff. Is There Anything I Can Do? Can I At Least Report The Agent For Fraud So He Won'T Screw Someone Else?
Thanks For Your Help
"The devil is in the details". The answer may very well be in one of the provisions of your lease. Commercial leases can vary depending on if it is a standalone space or on a floor of a building with other spaces sharing common areas. At the risk of saying hindsight is 20/20, you should have gotten this clarified BEFORE you signed the lease.
My recommendation is for you to request a meeting with your landlord and show him the results of the measurements and request the reduction in rent. Follow that up with a letter documenting the meeting and the request. If the Landlord continues to deny you, then you will need to hire an attorney to review your lease, review the measurements and then hopefully will only need a letter to the landlord threatening litigation to get your rent reduced accordingly. However, the attorney may advise you after reading the lease that you have no legal recourse. Again, it really depends how the lease is written.
As far as the agent, you can file a complaint with the Department of Real Estate but proving fraud is difficult. You would have to have overwhelming evidence that the agent knowingly leased you the space at 2300 feet when in fact he KNEW it was only 2,000. Most DRE's have limited manpower to investigate this and in the scheme of things this doesn't rank as an extremely large fraud if in fact there is fraud.
Does Any One If The Prepaid Legal Services On Line Are Scams?
Is It Worth Using Them Or Do You Scam You? How Do You Know If They Are For Real?
Lawyers are licensed in specific states, not for the whole world. In most cases, you are being offered only advice, not representation, and the advice can be from anyone. Look at this site and you will see that over half of the answers are dead wrong and most of the rest are incomplete or misleading. That is what you would be getting. You would do better getting advice from your bartender. There are legitimate pre-paid legal services, but they tend to be local or regional. They offer very limited services for the most part and ultimately will save very little money.
About A Year Ago I Was Involved In A Car Accident. It Was My Fault,But The Damage Was Very Minor.The Person I Hit With My Car Was Fine,But Now She Filled An Injury Claim.My Insurance Knew The Whole Thing From The Beginning.I Was Wondering,Who Pays The Money,The Insurance Or Me?Or Do We Split ?
Your company will pay the claim up to the liability limits that you have. They have a duty to try to settle the claim at or below your limits so that you don't have to pay anything out of pocket.
I doubt you have anything to worry about as the average injury settlement is well below most minimum policy limits.
I'M Looking Into A Home Based Business Thats Legal With Low Start Up Cost. Any Ideas??
Hi Live In Canada And I'M Researching A Viable, Ethical, Home Based Business. There Are Lots Of Scams Out There, I'M Just Trying To Sift Through The Garbage. Hopefully Can Help Me And Give Me Some Good Advise On This Matter.
I don't know what you like to do, so I can only tell you what my husband and I started over six years ago and point you out to some others to take a look at that I know are really good. Ours well supports our family as well as a major funding source for our non-profit organization that we started up a while back with part of the income we earned. As well as it's a funding source for other non-profit organizations.
Anyhow, we got involved in the telecommunications industry.
With a world wide company that's over 15 years old. We've been featured in several magazines like USA Today, Success, Fortune etc. Inc 500 rated us the 22nd fastest growing company. They offer services that people use every day and pay for anyway, but now they can have a lower cost. Services such as local and long distance phones, Internet, digital phones, video phones (you can see the person your taking to live)VOIP, Satallite tv, and all the major cellular phone companies like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Alltell, Nextell etc. have partnered up with them too.
How many people do you know, or know of, that uses or has one or more of these services? How would you feel if you could save people money on services that they're most likely already using, if not you can offer them the service, and everytime they pay their bills each month, you make a percentage off these bills every single month. Huge income opportunity. It's incredible how much money is involved in this industry.
If you'd like more information feel free to email me and I'll be happy to pass it along to you.

Where Does One Look For A Pro Bono Lawyer In Tenn. That Would Take A High Profile Criminal Case. Case.?
Call your closest legal aide office or your state's BAR association and ask for criminal legal referral.
No top notch attorney is going to take on a criminal case for free unless its something that will give them great press.
