4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal representative at all, you need to work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important methods to help your legal team help you 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 anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - especially information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any sort of crime, it's important so that you can convince the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

You could find a court appointed attorney; pro-bono attorney [free; not court appointed]; or hire an attorney with first discussing terms of repayment; possibly financing fees; maybe they would reduce their fee according to your income.
Ask questions first.

I Need To File A Appeal Aginst Judge And The Attorney Fees Are To Run Anywhere From $3000 To $5000?
That sounds about right for the retainer. Any types of appeals are a very expensive and time consuming process, so do not be surprised if the final bill exceeds $25,000. Depends quite a bit on what you are appealing, and whether it is state or federal courts. I've seen legal bills for an appeal run over $250,000, and that was in a state court, not federal.
Looking For Some Legal Advice. Please Help!?
Okay, So My Dad Has Had Me For The Past Year And Recently They Gad A Court Hearing Where They Asked Me Who Id Rather Live With But My Mom Was There And In Fear I Said Nothing, Not Wanting To Hurt My Mom. Im Now Living Back With My Mom And Id Rather Live Back With My Dad.... My Dads All For It And Says He'Ll Do What It Takes. So How Do We Approach This? My Friend Suggested Making An Anonymous Tip To Cps And Then Just Telling Them In Secrecy That I Want To Live With My Dad.... But This Seems A Bit Cruel. So Please Help! Any Suggestions Will Be Much Appreciated!
You, personally, must write a letter to the court telling what you did, it is called an error of omission and saying what you really want.. You need to have some good reasons for why you want to live with your Dad so you better talk to him or a counselor about that. Why you were not told what to expect in court and helped to say what you wanted and not be intimidated by the circumstances is just stupid. You give the letter to your Dad to take to his lawyer who must reopen the physical custody hearing and ask for a new date to rehear the matter. You also must talk to your mother about your feelings and about going back to live with your Dad, you might want to do this with a counselor or CPS agent or social worker present who can help keep everyone calm and let you get what you have to say said. This process is going to take a few months at least but it will work if everything comes out up front and honest. Going to CPS behind your mothers back is the dumbest thing you could do unless you are actually being physically harmed when in her care.
Why Is The Washout Or Look-Back Period For The Ga Dui Law Not Considered Ex Post Facto?
Why Is The Washout Or Look-Back Period (10 Years) For The 2008 Amended Dui Law (O.C.G.A. Section 40-6-391) Not Considered An Ex Post Facto Law For Cases That Occured Before 2008 Under The Five Year Look Back Period?
More Specifically, If You Had A Dui On July 2, 1998 And Get Another On July 1, 2008, Prosecutors Consider This Your Second Offense. Even Though Under The Old Law, The Look Back Expired In 2003. It Seems To Me That Using The Law In This Manner Is In Direct Violation Of Having An Ex Post Factor Law.
However, The 2008 Amended Law States That It Takes Effect For Offenses On Or After July 1, 2008. This Statement Applies To All Sections Within This Law, But Prosecutors Are Using The Look Back Period To Increase Punishments For Convictions Prior To This Date. When One Looks At The Words On Or After, These Words Does Not Mean Or Equate To The Word Prior. I Could Not Find Anything In The State Of Georgia That Addresses This Issue Either As An Official Opinion Or Under The Rule Of Law.
It Would Make Sense To Prosecute Offenders Of This Law In The Following Manner:
1) If One Is Convicted Of Dui Prior To July 1, 2008, The Look Back Period Of 5 Years From The Prior Law Shall Be Used Up To But Not Past July 1, 2008. (If The Look Back Period Has Already Expired Under The Previous Law, It Should Not Be Considered An Offense Under The Amended Law.)
Example: John Doe Was Convicted For Dui On January 2, 2003 (1St Offense Under Old Law). January 2, 2008 His Look Back Period Expires Under The Old Law. John Doe Gets Convicted Of Another Dui On July 2, 2008, In Which He Is Sentenced As A First Offender (Even Though Its Truly His Second).
2)Every Conviction On Or After July 1, 2008 Will The Look Back Period Of 10 Years.
Example: John Doe Gets Convicted Of Another Dui On July 2, 2008, In Which He Is Sentenced As A First Offender. John Doe Gets Convicted Of Another Dui On July 1, 2018, In Which He Is Sentenced As A Second Offender.
I Would Like To Believe That One Would Be Charged/Sentenced As A 1St Offender Under These Circumstances Stated Above But They Are Not. Could Someone Explain Why This Is The Case And Why The Law Is Not Considered An Ex Post Facto Law?
It appears that the law is properly written but the prosecutors are pushing the envelope. One would hope some judges note the ex post facto effect, and force compliance with the Constitution. However, Article I, Section 9 limits Congress, not the Georgia Legislatur, so there may be some wrangling necessary.
The definition of an ex post facto law comes from Calder v. Bull in 1798 in the opinion written by Justice Chase:
"1st. Every law that makes an action done before the passing of the law, and which was innocent when done, criminal; and punishes such action. 2d. Every law that aggravates a crime, or makes it greater than it was, when committed. 3d. Every law that changes the punishment, and inflicts a greater punishment, than the law annexed to the crime, when committed. 4th. Every law that alters the legal rules of evidence, and receives less, or different, testimony, than the law required at the time of the commission of the offense, in order to convict the offender."
There can be argument made that this law does not fit that definition. If it modifies the look-back period for crimes committed after its effective date, and those crimes were STILL crimes in that lookback period, and their punishment is not changed, it may not even fit the 2nd case cited. But this is a matter for the courts, and perhaps prosecutors are in fact doing due diligence to make a case that forces the issue. Laws are not declared unconstituytional by review, most of the time, but rather by a court case challenging them.
What Is The Salary For A 25Th Year Securities Lawyer At A Large Law Firm?
Apparently A 1St Year Associate Makes 160 Grand I Was Wondering What A 25Th Year Securities Partner At A Major Law Firm Makes
Not all 1st year associates make $160k p/yr and a 25th year partner gets bonuses and profit sharing based upon how the firm is doing financially in addition to their annual salary. There is no set amount based on senority.
