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.

Father'S Visitation Rights......?
I Am Asking This Under My Wife'S Log On.....I Lost A Battle For Visitation Rights To My Son Due To Having A Really Bad Attorney....I Pay Child Support, Paid My Ex'S Mediation Fees, Paid Half Of The Medical Bills For My Son, Paid For The Paternity Test....I Did Everything I Was Supposed To Do....Her Defense Was My Irresponsibility Due To My Age (I Am 23, She Is 33) And She Said In Court That I Was A Convicted Felon (Burglary Charge When I Was 13 Years Old) And My Attorney Did Not Say A Word To Defend Me....Sooooo....I Got Only Every Other Weekend Visitation (No Holiday, Birthdays, Father'S Day, Nothing) And She Got Sole Parental Responsibility.....We Were Not Married (In Case Anyone Asks), It Was A One Night Stand But I Am Trying To Take Repsponsibility And Be In My Son'S Life.....The Question Is.....Should I File For A Modification Of Final Judgment???? I Want My Son!!!
I am an attorney and have done family law, so I'll give you some answers based on my experience. First, maybe you did have a bad attorney, but you got a pretty standard deal. The only thing I can see which might not be standard is paying the mom's mediation fees, but that's minor. As far as your attorney not jumping up and defending you when the other attorney said that you were a convicted felon, don't worry about it. The judge is not stupid. The judge probably had paperwork indicating that you were thirteen when it happened, and it was a burglary, and that's why your attorney didn't explain that. As far as the amount of visitation time you got, every other weekend, I would say that is probably because your son is still a baby. If the judge thought that you were convicted of child molestation or something, you would have gotten no visitation. Regarding filing for modification of visitation, most states have a minimum amount of time which must go by before you can file for a modification. And actually, most couples do not follow their visitation order to the letter anyway. If you faithfully and responsibly visit your son and show this mom, who it sounds like you barely know, that you are going to be a good parent, maybe you can work something out with her informally. Most moms of toddlers would be THRILLED to have someone they trusted show up to take the child to the park, to the zoo, whatever.
I applaud you that you are determined to be a good dad to this little guy. I now know many, many of these one-night stand kind of mom and dad and baby situations, and actually they can work out great. A lot of these dads are really stepping up to the plate and being dads to these kids. And it seems like it might be an advantage that the mom and dad don't have a dating history. There aren't a lot of hard feelings. Keep on doing what you are doing. This little boy needs you.
Need Legal Advice But I Dont Have Money?
Does Anyone Know A Family Court Lawyer I Can Talk To, Just For Legal Advice? I Don'T Have Any Money To Speak Of. However, I Really Need To Know My Rights So I Can Handle My Case Legally.
You need to find your nearest legal aid. Lawyers do not provide legal advice for nothing, just as butchers and bakers and candlestick makers don't provide their product for free.
I'm sure you'll see several people advising "most lawyers will provide a free 1 hour consultation", since that's the prevailing myth. In fact, a lawyer will meet with you to discuss how they can help you, they will not advise you on how to handle your own case.

What Should I Study For Criminal Law?
I Am Among The Top 10% Of High School Students In My Nation For Writing. I'M Also A Good Public Speaker And Have A Gift For 'Disguising Anxiety And Appearing Natural'.
However, I Was Thinking Of Becoming A Criminal Lawyer. The Company My Sister Is Already Employed At Does Not Offer Any Criminal Law Services. So, I'M Going To Have To Study Harder To Get Into A Bigger, More Developed Company.
Any Suggestions On What I Should Study? I'M Taking English, Legal Studies And Cambridge History. For Sciences I'M Taking Accounting, Biology, Chemistry And Physics. I'M Planning On Trying Out For Premier Debating Too.

The reality is the economy, which has dramatically changed. Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years....
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
