4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want an attorney at all, you need to work closely using them in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Here are 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 - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - particularly information other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they have to help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, each and every time. In reality, because you may want to discuss last minute details or even be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any sort of crime, it's important so as to convince the legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

How Do Law Firms Work?
What I Mean Is, Like, What Is A Firm?
What Types Of Firms Are There Because There Are Firms For Accounting.
My Friends Dad Work At A Firm With Like 7 Other Guys In A Small Business Complex. While I Hear That There Are Big Law Firms In Cities That Have Hundreds Of People Working There They Went To Like Yale And Get 100K After A Year On The Job, Right Off The Bat. Clearly My Friends Dad Doesnt Make That Much Lol But Why Doesn'T He Make That Much? Whats So Different About The Firm He Works At And The Firm In The City?
Wow, you sound like my in-laws "why doesn't your firm make more money?" It it a tough question.
The big law firms in the major cities either have been around for a long time or are mergers of firms that were aroung for many years. The importance of that is that in the 1950s and in to the 1970s there were fewer lawyers than there are now by a really large amount. The reasons are that law school was pretty much for the rich, no student loans, and law schools were really selective as to who they let in.
So these big firms begain in an era where they would get more clients. More clients mean that the firm can hire more attorneys. More attorneys means more people who talk about the firm and ... more clients.
Also with lots of attorneys working at a firm you can take on more cases because there is experience in different areas of law. You get a firm with 7 people and even if each one is good at a different type of law, that is only 7 types of a potential of hundreds. So the bigger the firm the more different types of cases and more clients.
Now, a single attorney can and is licensed to do almost every type of law -- except those areas that require an additional test. So, theorethically that attorney could do lots more cases, BUT that is not the way it is in reality. Because of malpractice issues attorneys tend to keep to one area of law -- less cases, less clients.
Finally right now there are lots more attorneys than ever before. In Illinois where I practice we have more lawyers than doctors -- really sad. So just because of the glut of lawyers that firm with 7 people will have fewer clients.
Your friend's dad probably made the decision to stay in a smaller firm (and make less money) because he believed that there are other important things in life besides working. Many attorneys want a life outside the law firm and in a big law firm you are expected to work long hours, weekends, holidays. Your friend's dad was probably able to be their for his family because of that decision to work in a small firm. For many attorneys money is not number one, family is.
Hope this helps.
Advice From Law Enforcer Wives Or Girlfriends Only!!!!?
So There Is This Sheriff And I Have A Big Crush On Him, But He Is Always Busy Working :(....In Person He Is A Great, Funny, Respectable Guy....But On The Phone Very Boring I Have 2 Carry The Conversation And That'S Hard Cause I Run Out Of Things To Say :( We'Ve Been Talking For A Yr And I Wanna Tell Him I Like Him But I Don'T Want It To Be Awkward Between Us If He Doesn'T Feel The Same Way & Im Also Scared Because I Heard That Law Enforcers Can Be Very Controlling....Some Advice Please
Wow! People are really harsh about this...
Here is the deal--ANYBODY can be controlling...not just those in law enforcement. In my experience, I have yet to come across a guy who is in law enforcement who is controlling or ones to the point that some on here have mentioned. Most are very kind, protective and attentive and quite easy-going. It may be tough because their schedules are not always ideal so it takes a lot of understanding on their partner's part but I don't think it's really anything that should deter. In addition, many guys are not phone guys and don't like talking on the phone which is why you probably feel like that about talking to him on the phone. I know my husband is like that because he hates talking on the phone unless he has to. Lastly, people should not judge PO's based on a few bad ones--they are not all cheats and liars. If anything, most of them are really loyal and get very defensive when they are called as such because of the behavior of a few. Divorce rates in law enforcement aren't any higher than in any other occupation, so statistics are misleading and do not tell you the whole truth and what they are truly based on and compared to.
If you like him, then go for it. You've been talking to him for a year now and you won't know anything until you actually try. The worst that can happen is that he doesn't like you. However, don't let misconceptions and stereotypes put you off because though there are guys who may fit them, the majority don't.
Finding Information On Lawyers?
Is There A Website Or Something That Will Give Me Information On Lawyers? I Want To Ensure That I Am Getting Someone Who Will Fight Tooth & Nail On My Behalf. I'D Love To Be Anble To Know What Their Win Vs Loss Ratio Is. How Can I Come By That Information?
If you are looking for an appellate attorney (you don't say what type of case you have), their state appellate court appeals can be word-searched on Lexis or Westlaw, which many public libraries have. Just search by the attorney's name, pull up their appeals, and look at the headnotes for the results for each case. Same for Federal District Court, U.S. Courts of Appeals, and U.S. Supreme court cases. If you have a bankruptcy, intellectual property, or admiralty case you will need to look in other databases, but they are still accessible through West or Lexis. You can also try PACER. This is all public record.
In addition, some state courts' databases are available online going back maybe 10 years, and can be word searched. The age of the database and searchability varies state-to-state, however.
Approximate Cost To Have A Divorce Lawyer Review Divorce Papers?
We Lived In Utah Throughout Our Whole Marriage. We Are Both From California. She Left To Go Live In Ca (Or So I Thought) While I Stayed In Utah. Now She Has Sent Uncontested Divorce Papers Stating That She Has Become A Resident Of Nevada, And Wants Me To Sign. I Don'T Plan To Sign Anything (Yet) And Am Curious To Know About How Much It Would Cost To Have A Divorce Lawyer Review The 10 Papers And Make Any Necessary Tweaks So I Can Get Screwed Over Later On Down The Road. Any Estimates Are Appreciated.
Also, Anyone Have Any Ideas Why She Would Supposedly Become A Nv Resident To Handle The Divorce Instead Of Ut Or Ca? I Don'T Know Anyone She Might Know In Nv And It Just Seems So Weird To Me, Especially Since I Know She Has Been Living With Her Parents In Ca For Part Of The Time. Thanks In Advance.
The average lawyer is $200/hour. Divorce is easy and inexpensive in NV. Just requires you to be a resident. However, if she is not a legal resident, the divorce won't be valid, so I'd enquire as to where she actually has a residence. If she's been living and working in CA during this time period, I can't see how this would work. If she cannot prove employment in NV, she will have to provide a Resident Witness Affidavit that another resident signs stating that he/she has seen her living in Nevada for 6 weeks. This can be obtained fraudulently by anybody needing a buck, which sadly, is a lot of current residents in Las Vegas.
Nevada has the most lenient divorce law in the US. The main advantage I can see for Nevada divorce today is that you get the final decree in 1-3 weeks vs. months in either CA or UT.
