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.

Legal Advice That Is Free?
I Need Some Free Legal Advice.. Stupid Other Online Sites Say Free Yet After You Type The Question You Have To Pay! Its Really Annoying! Help
Depending on the type of question you have, there are free services in every state.
I would start by looking up the nearest Legal Aid office. If there isn't one close to you, I would type "legal services <your state> pro bono," into google. You should find some sort of list of organizations that provide free legal services.
Added later: Thanks for adding more info. It does help.
(1) You should do what I suggested above and instead of looking for a phone number, look for an email address.
(2) You definitely have a case against the contractors. If they were paid for work they did not do, then they can be sued.
(3) When dealing with contractors, NEVER pay all the money up front. Work out a deal where you give money at the start and then incrementally as the work gets done.
Can You Study Law And Become A Lawyer After Studying History At University?
I Live In The Uk And I'M Planning To Go To University In The Uk As Well. I'M 16 At The Moment So I Still Have A Year Or So To Decide What I Want To Study, Where, And What Professions I Could Go Into From My Degree.
I Really Enjoy Learning About History And It'S Always Fascinated Me From An Early Age. The Only Problem Is That Just Studying History By Itself Doesn'T Lead Into Many Professions Thus I'Ve Come Up With The Idea Of Perhaps Studying Law And Becoming A Lawyer. I'M Also Pretty Good At English So The Intellectual Aspects Of Law Wouldn'T Be A Problem For Me.
My Question Is, Can I Study History At University And Then Study Law At A Graduate College Or Do I Have To Read A Law Degree?
Ignore that last answer, they don't know the way that the U.K education system works.
In short yes, you can. You do your undergraduate degree in history. And following that you need to do a conversion course which is a one year course that will prepare you to do law. It is an intense year and it costs A LOT it's £11,000 I believe for the one year.
And then after that if you want to become a solicitor then you need too do "The Bar" which is another year. I would suggest that you just do law. It will be cheaper and you will get to your destination faster.
Child Custody Case And Determining Factors?
Currently Involved In A Custody Case. Some Things Have Come To Light And I Have A Few Questions For People Who Have Gone Through A Battle Before. Does The Parents Moral Values Play A Role In Determining Custody? If Contact Is Being Restricted And / Or Monitored Is That Taken Into Account?
The moral values: It depends.
Restricted contact: It depends.
One thing I hated about my family law class during law school was that family law is not black and white. There is never a bright legal line (unless the situation is really extreme). Just about everything related to family law is all about the shades of gray.
Moral values are irrelevant unless they represent an obvious and extreme risk to the child's physical or mental health. So, if the other parent is slutting around - the court is not going to care unless the parent is exposing the child to sex acts. If the slutting around is happening behind closed doors, it is likely going to be considered irrelevant. Likewise, if the parent is partying: If the child isn't being exposed to the parties it will be irrelevant.
And candidly, even if there is blow back on the child, the court will often just order the parent to curtail the behavior rather than change custody.
A parent unilaterally stopping visitation without a really good reason is more likely to raise the eyebrows of any judge.
Best Law Firm For Mega Millions Winner?
Do Certain Firms Excel At Assisting Mega Millions Winners?
What do you need a lawyer for? Tax-wise, coming into a large sum of money isn't rocket science. Any tax preparer will be able to help you file correctly. Unless what you're asking is for a law firm to help you weasel out of the tax payment.
Also, expect to change your phone number... a *lot*. Because the identities of the winners are public, you'll be hounded, for the rest of your life, by people trying to get you to invest in their crazy ideas or to help save the whales or whatever. Because of *that*, actually, what you might want to consider doing is see a lawyer about maybe finding some homeless dude, send *him* forward with the winning ticket (after setting up all the contracts with him, of course), and then have him transfer all of the winnings to you (except for a few thousand for him for his troubles). That way, you'd stay off of the radar of the investment-seekers...
What Is Usually Done With The First Visit With A Divorce Attorney?
Do mean what happens at the first visit?
You and the Attorney have a general discussion about divorce in your State, including your grounds for the divorce. The Attorney advises you about State laws concerning custody/visitation/spousal support/child support, division of assets and debts.
He/she will give you an estimate of how many hours he/she "predicts" he/she will need to work on your divorce, including preparation time, time in Court, time on the telephone, any and all time spent. He/she will quote you an hourly rate (in my area about $275 an hour), explain the billing procedure - usually monthly. If the Attorney has paraprofessionals (who cannot, by law, give legal advice) their hourly for all they do is much lower than the Attorney's rate.
The Attorney will ask you for a retainer and will bill hours against the retainer until the retainer is gone. In some cases the Attorney then begins to bill you monthly. Sometimes the Attorney requests another retainer. The minimum retainer in my area is $3,000.
Then you either sign a retainer agreement and pay the retainer (money) or you decide to seek another Attorney or - in some cases - not file for divorce.
In general, the "moneyed party" (the party with the better income) is asked to pay for the legal fees of the other party. Unless there is a huge difference in income/assets this is usually denied by the Judge.
Pregnet With My Boyfriends Baby, And Not Legaly Separated Or Divorced Form My Husband.?
About 10 Months Ago I Finally Got The Courage To Leave My Husband Of 5 Years. The Marrage Has Been Over For The Last 2 Years. We Have 2 Beautiful Girls Together. Well For The Last 10 Months I Have Been With My Boyfriend, He Has Been My Rock And My Night And Shinning Armor Thew This Whole Emoshional Roller Coaster With My Husband. Well Just 2 Weeks Ago I Found Out That My Boyfriend And I Are Going To Have A Baby. My Boyfriend Is So Excieted And I'M Really Nerves. Well My Boyfriend Wants Me To Move In With Him Not Work Just Stay Home With The Kids. This Is What I Have Always Wanted To Be A Stay At Home Mom To Raise My Kids. Well My Husband Has Told Me That He Wants To Take The Kids And Run. Well My Questions Is Do You Think My Husband Can Take My Kids From Me Due To We Are Not Leagly Seperated Or Divorced And Pregnet With My Boyfriend Baby?
“do you think my husband can take my kids from me due to we are not leagly seperated or divorced and pregnet with my boyfriend baby?”
Can he get custody merely because you’re pregnant with another man’s child? No.
Is it going to end up being a battle because you’ve moved his children in with this man? It very well could. It depends on how much he wants to push it, if he can dig up any dirt on the man, etc.
I do think you need to reconsider quitting your job, because when you go to court your income will be ZERO. You can’t support your children with zero income. Yes, boyfriend will be providing for you, but still YOUR income will be zero. Boyfriend is not obligated to support your kids and at any time he could ‘remove’ his support (I know, you’re sure he won’t do that, but he can).
I’d highly suggest that you talk to a local attorney before you do anything.
By the way, if your husband is threatening to take the kids and run, then you need to get a temporary custody order, because if you don’t have that he can waltz right into the school/babysitter/etc and pick them up (without a temporary custody order, he has just as much right as you do to pick up those children).
