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.

Personal Injury Settlement?
I Have Had A Serious Sensitivity To Nuts (Which I Have Always Called An Allergy So People Will Not Give Me Nuts) That Leaves Me Crippled In Pain For Hours After Eating Them. I Recently Ate A Restaurant That Had A Pecan In My Ceasar Salad, It Was At The Bottom And Broken Before I Knew Anything. Anyway, Later That Evening, I Experienced Swelling Of Throat, Difficulty Breathing And Swallowing. Several Lawyers Say I Have A Great Suit, I Don'T Feel Like I Want To Be Part Of 'Sue America'...So, What Is A Good Settlement? I Have To Carry An Epi-Pen Now For The Rest Of My Life And Can Never Have Anything Touched By Tree Nuts. I Am Terriefied To Eat Out. Epi-Pens Are Not Cheap Either....And You Have To Get A New One Regularly. I Also Have To Have Follow Up Visits With The Doc. What Are Everyones Thoughts On This? The Restaurant Is Claiming Full Responsibility.....?
If you asked explicitly for NO NUTS and they neglected to follow your instructions, then you are entitled for a settlement. You should at least ask for full compensations for all the medical expenses.
What's fair? That is entirely up to you.... Some will settle for just expense reimbursed. Some will want more. Your lawyer should be able to advise you on this. I am pretty sure you are not entitled to millions of dollars, but assuming they neglected to follow your instructions, they should pay you more than just for your actual expenses.
By the way, don't shy away from filing a lawsuit when necessary. Since they are agreeing to their responsibility, you might be able to settle this out of court. However, if their insurance company has to get involved, they might want to go to court. Either way, though, because of the amount of money involved, you might need a lawyer to process this so that there are no open ends. You could hire him on contengency (where he gets percentage) or you could hire him on hourly fees. This is far beyond what I can advise you, since I am now a lawyer. I would; however, certainly consider all these variables.
Do You Think It Is Reasonable For Me To Have My Masters Degree In Law After I Get My Degree In Business?
Do You Think I Will Make Good Money. Will I Be Going To Courts?
A degree in business followed by a law degree makes a very good credential set for a job in business. The money depends on the job you get. It could be a lot or not. But you won't be going to court unless your law degree is followed by a bar exam and admittance as an attorney in your state or country. It is important to decide before you start your law degree program whether you will be taking the bar exam and becoming an attorney. That decision changes the intensity level.

Looks like Jose and Eric are fugitives and probably have warrants out for their arrest.
Eric and Jahaziel were charged late in July. Jahaziel got a court appointed lawyer. Either they ratted out Jose or the cops couldn’t find him until late August. Jose and Eric bonded out at some point early on and then disappeared. When they didn’t show the court went about revoking their bond.
A revoked bond upsets the bail bondsman and they usually have 60 – 120 days to track down the fugitive kids.
Around the first of the year the District Attorney nolle pros’d the charges against Jahaziel. Meaning they didn’t have enough on him specifically and are dropping the charges.
Or equally possible, the District Attorney didn’t want to go forward with those charges without the co-defendants. They do this to get around speedy trial issues. Speedy trial where I am means,
If someone is in custody they must be brought to trial within 5 months of the time of the arraignment or the charges get dismissed.
If the person is out on bail then it is nine months from the time of the arraignment.
The folks were arraigned in August and the speedy trial clock was running. With the nolle pros the state can come back at anytime in the future and direct indict and start the whole thing new. Meaning, an arrest warrant will be issued and the trial starts fresh.
Hope this answers some of your questions.

Lawyer Fees, $10,000?
Case Is Sexual Assault. Lawyer Charges Us $10G. Is This Really How They Charge Here? I'M Just New In States U Know.
I doubt that's the total fee - its probably just a retainer. You could end up paying a lot more than that. You will really, really want to make sure you know exactly how you will be charged and how that $10k will cover and what it will be used for.
Is My Job In Violation Of Labor Laws?
I Currently Work Third Shift And Just Recently Our Supervisor Has Taken Away Our 15-Minute Break Periods, Citing That Due To Work Performance Issues That This Decision Had To Be Made. He Said That &Quot; He Was Doing Us A Favor&Quot; In Giving Us The Breaks. We Work 10-Hour Shifts And At Times, Are Mandated To Stay Up To 2 Hours After We Are Scheduled To Leave Work. I Was Always Told That If We Work More Than Four Hours On A Shift That We Are To Receive 2 15-Minute Breaks As Well As Our 30-Minute Lunch Break. Has My Employer Violated Any Labor Laws? I Reside And Work In Indiana And Thank You In Advance For Your Help.
Not labor laws by the State or Federal government.
However he may have violated contract law for the type of work done and where it is done or Union terms.
I also work 3'rd shift and can have 8, 10 , or 12 hour shifts +30 mins for meal. Our contract with the client only says we must take 30 mins away from our station for meals. Hence the 10.5 hr shift is only paid 10. No breaks are written into the contract, however common sense allows us to take responsible small breaks to limit fatigue.
BTY per the Dept of Labor breaks are not required as mentioned above. This is a per company / contract issue.

Laws and Regulations on This Topic
Federal law does not require lunch or coffee breaks. However, when employers do offer short breaks (usually lasting about 5 to 20 minutes), federal law considers the breaks as compensable work hours that would be included in the sum of hours worked during the work week and considered in determining if overtime was worked. Unauthorized extensions of authorized work breaks need not be counted as hours worked when the employer has expressly and unambiguously communicated to the employee that the authorized break may only last for a specific length of time, that any extension of the break is contrary to the employer's rules, and any extension of the break will be punished.
Bona fide meal periods (typically lasting at least 30 minutes), serve a different purpose than coffee or snack breaks and, thus, are not work time and are not compensable.
