4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a legal professional at all, you must work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Listed below are four important ways to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could check out 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 should enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, whenever. In fact, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Calling All Family/Custody Lawyers. ?
Ok Here Is The Story. I Lived In Massachusetts For A While. I Lived Two Streets Away From My Daughters Father And He Hardly Ever Came To See Her. In Order For Him To Spend Time With Her Me And Him Went To A Notary Place Where We Signed A Paper Saying That He Would Come Get Her Every Other Weekend And Spend The Weekend With Her. I Would Get Calls From His Girlfriend Who Would Tell Me That He Left And Left Her With My Daughter. So I Would Have To Go Pick Her Up. I Put Him On Child Support. But He Didn'T Start Paying That Til She Was 4. Anyway When She Was Three I Decided To Move To Puerto Rico Because As I Said He Wasn'T Helping Me Out At All And I Had No Family In Massachusetts. A Year Later When He Started To Work And Pay His Child Support He Asked If She Could Go Visit Him For Summer Vacation. I Said Yes. I Wanted My Daughter To Have A Relationship With Her Dad And I Never Spoke Bad About Him To Her So She Was Excited To Go. She Goes On This Vacation To See Him In Massachusetts And One Night I Got A Drunken Call From Him Telling Me That I Would Never See My Daughter Again And That He Was Going To Steal Her And What Not. Well I Did Get Her Back. My Daughter Came Back Telling Me That He And His Girlfriend Would Roll A Green Leaf Up Everyday And Smoke It In Front Of Her, She Also Said That He Would Drink Beer And She Would Say Papi Please Don'T Drink . Needless To Say When The Next Summer Came Along I Did Not Allow Her To Go. She Is Now 6 And I'M Planning On Moving To Pennsylvania. Well He Asked Me This Year To Take Her Again For The Summer. I Said Yes, Because He Has Apologized For That Incident And Says He Hasn'T Been Drinking And He Also Got A New Apartment Where She Can Have. A Room To Her Self. So She Is Supposed To Be Set To Spend Vaca With Him On May 27. But I Got A Letter He Wrote To Child Support Saying That He Needed Them To Stop His Payments Cause He Got A New Apartment And Our Daughter Would Be Living With Him From Now On.
First: DO NOT SEND THE CHILD TO HIM FOR THE SUMMER!!!
Second: Is the only agreement about custody/visitation the one you two signed with a notary? If there is no court ordered custody agreement, he has as much right to keep her when you send her to him for the summer as you have to pick up and move with her whenever you want.
Third: Respond to the document you got from child support telling them that you have primary physical custody and the child will not be living with him. If he wants to have his child support lowered/adjusted, he will have to file court documents to get a court-ordered visitation/custody schedule and if he doesn't return her when he is legally supposed to, the cops should go looking for him.
Fourth: Good luck.
Legal Question About Slipping And Falling In Public Place?
I Was At A Local Bar Shooting Pool With Family And Friend. I Had Drank Around 5 Or 6 All Night So I Was Fine With The Beer. It Was About 30 Minutes Before Closing Time And I Was Walking From Pool Tablr To Sit Down, Cause My Shot Was Done, Then I Slipped On Liquid That Was On Floor And About Passed Out With Pain, A Couple People Helped Me Up And To The Bar To Set Down. Then My Family And Friend Helped Me Home. I Went To The Er A Day And Half Later And Said I Had Tore Legiements And Sprained My Left Knee. I May Have To Have Surgery To Fix My Knee. How Do I Go About Suing This Bar??
"Slip and Fall" lawsuits in public places are based on negligence. To prevail, you'll have to prove that the owner of the bar 'knew" about the spilled liquid on the floor and failed to clean it up within a reasonable period of time PLUS, you'll have to prove your injury; i.e., if only your feelings were hurt, you would have no case. But if you had actual medical bills, you would have a chance for recovery.
You, of course, were negligent by drinking and that too will be taken into account. Depending on the state the accident happened in, if its your fault at all, you'll won't be allowed to recover a penny based on contributory negligence.
However, most states abide by a "comparative negligence doctrine." This means that the amount of your recovery will be reduced by "your" degree of fault. For example, if you file suit and the jury concludes that your intoxication deemed you 60% at fault, then your damages would be reduced by 60%. So if your medical bills were 10K, you would recover 4K (60 percent of 10K).
Hope that helps. I've attached a link that explains contributory negligence v. comparative negligence.
Where Can I Find More Information About The Asbestos Cancer Mesothelioma?
Where Can I Find A Good Personal Injury Lawyer Or A Good Lawyer Who Specializes In Mesothelioma And Personal Injury Structured Settlements?
If You Were A Lawyer...?
Would You Rather Be A Defense Lawyer Or A Prosecutor? And Please Explain Why. Thanks.
Though i spend most of my time defending people IRL lol,
if i were a lawyer, i would rather prosecute;
The reason being, not because i think that the accused do not deserve defense, but because (whereas it concerns rapists, pedophiles, murderers etc) I'd rather remove them from society, then have to be the one charged with the job of keeping them in it.
Besides, though i believe and understand that everyone deserves defense, and am one that is all for grace and second changes, i also could not rationalise defending someone that i knew was guilty of commiting a horrific crime.
Though i believe in Grace, i also believe in consequences. As well as believe in justice.
"Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent-- the Lord detests them both." Proverbs 17:15
"When men have a dispute, they are to take it to court and the judges will decide the case, acquitting the innocent and condemning the guilty." Deuteronomy 25:1
*edit* frankm: um, that's kind of an ignorant assumption. maybe some are, but not all lawyers are liars.
How To Change Power Of Attorney?
I Am A Home Health Nurse And The Woman I Care For Fell The Other Night And Broke Her Clavicle. Her Doctors The Past Couple Of Days Have Been Going Against Her Wishes And Being Extremely Rude To Her And Myself. The Biggest Point Here, She Is Mentally All Together, And She Asked To Not Have Her Daughter Called Because She Would Like To Do It Herself. The Doctors Decided To Do It Anyway. She Is Her Poa And Decided It Would Be Best If Her Personal Nurse Who Knows Her Best Should Know Nothing The Doctors &Amp; Nurses Are Giving Her, Ordering For Her (Rehab Which She Wants At Home But They Decided To Go To A Clinic), Changing All Of Her Medication, She Can'T Function Here. Now Her Daughter Lives About 600 Miles Away.
We Talked In Length And She Wants To Change Her Poa To Myself Or Another Woman Who Works For Her. How Do We Go About This?
Give your patient the phone, and have her call her lawyer, or an elder law attorney. Since she is legally an adult, she should be able to get this legal advice from the appropriate professional. Try and get her to contact her own attorney- they ethically work for her, and will have her previous information.This can be a dicey situation, since she gave POA to someone. Just get her in touch with her own attorney.
Make sure you stay out of this. It's far too easy for people to turn on you, and it's never a safe place to get between a client and their family. they could trash your reputation in a heartbeat and report you for theft- even if it's not true, it would taint your reputation. Don't take it up with your agency, either, or you would be fired. They don't want to be a target, either.
