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.

Question For Employment Lawyers About Wrongful Sexual Harassment?
As Of Tuesday 8/18/09 I Was Suspended From Work For Serious Charges As My Boss Put It. Yesterday I Reported To The Office For A Conference Call With The Head Of Human Resources And Found Out The Charges Were About Sexual Harassment On An Associate I Work With. So Here Is My Story. There Is An Associate I Work With As I'Ve Mentioned Above. She Has Accused Me Of Making Sexual Advances Toward Her,If Not More In The Work Place. She Says She Has 4 Witness' That Witnessed These Events At Work. Although From Personally Being There,None Of These Witness' Were Ever Around When She Spoke To Me When Passed Through That Area On A Patrol Or To Respond To A Call In That Area. As Of Lately,Rumors Have Spread Very Quickly Through The Store About The Two Of Us Having Sex,Me Being Obsessed With Her,Constantly Asking Her Out On Dates,And The List Goes On. So I Began Ignoring Her And Any Calls She Made Completely. Soon After,It Got To The Point Where Whenever She Ran Into On Patrol,She Would Ask Questions Like,Have I Done Something Wrong To You?, Why Don'T You Talk To Me?, What Happened To You And Why Have You Changed? I Have Reported Every One Of These Incidents To My Fellow Lp Officers In The Camera Room Every Time It Happened. From That Point On, She Started Staring At Me Every Time I Passed By Or Was In The Area. So I Asked My Fellow Lpo To Watch Her On The Camera,He Said &Quot;Dude,This Is Starting To Look Like Border Line Obsession.&Quot; The More I Ignored Her The Harder She Tried To Get My Attention. So When Things Didn'T Go Her Way,She Played The Sexual Harassment Card. So,I Denied All Accusations At My Meeting And They Thought It Was A Load Of B.S. After Doing A Little Investigating Of My Own,I Found Out Not Only Was She Married,But As Done This To Few Lp Officers Before I Got There. So She'S Been Known For Doing This. As For Her Witness' I Is Her Sister-In-Law And The Other 3 Are Very Good Friends Of Hers And Knew About This As Well And Are Lying For Her Now. This Has Happened To A Friend Of Mine A Few Months Ago. They Took The Same Steps With Him Even Though The Women Both Consented To The Sexual Joking. They Fired Him For Sexual Harassment ,But When He Got The Letter Of Termination,It Never Once Mentioned That Was There Reason For Termination But It'S On His Record Now. And Now The Same Thing Is Being Done To Me. The Company Never Did An Investigation On Him And Probably Won'T With Me Even Though I Have Quite A Bit Of Proof. And My Last But Not Least My Company Plays Favorites And I Don'T Think It'S Fair When I Am Literally The Only African-American Male Working In The Entire Store. So My Question Is,Since I Will Be Terminated Very Soon From Sexual Harassment,Do I Have Enough To Put Up A Fight In The Matter And Is This Something That May Be Worth Pursuing In Court? This Has Gone For Too Long And Something Needs To Be Done About It Since Our Company Won'T Defend Us. I Have Also Found Out From Another Reliable Source That I Was Also Accused Of Threatening To Beat My Co-Worker With A Baton If I Ever Caught Him Talking To Her Again
Thanks In Advance For Your Answers
You know, when you think about it, SHE was sexually harassing YOU! Man it galls me that only men are punished for this. Women are more than capable of it too, and she clearly was doing it to you, including creating a hostile work environment through slander.
While many states are considered "at-will" (meaning you can be fired for no reason at all at a whim) one of the exceptions is sexual harassment and defamation of character. It may be possible to sue for wrongful termination. It may also be possible to sue her individually for defamation and collect damages as a result of the loss of employment. I don't know what state you are, but your local department of labor might have some more specific advice and/or options. Get in touch with them and retain an attorney for yourself.
EDIT: If race seems to be an issue here (that is, they are being biased against your word because they are racist) heck, go for it. Race is also a exception to at-will too. This is CA's labor department link, and may be useful to you: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/HowToFileDisc...
Are You Impressed By Attorneys?
That They Got Into Law School, Endured It, And Are Now Attorneys?
Why Or Why Not?
I'm guessing you are planning to be or are one. Well I'm currently doing a Law degree and I am fascinated by attorneys and lawyers to be honest.
It requires dedication and an awful lot of hard work. And no not all lawyers are liars like the other answerer said. My lecturer is a human rights lawyer and she sure isn't a liar, there are good lawyers as well.
Have a nice day :)
I Need Some Serious, Honest Legal Advice, Please Help!!?
Ok, This Is A Pretty Long Story, Please Read The Entire Post, Ill Try To Shorten It Down As Much As I Can. First Off, I'M 19 Years Old, At The Times Of The Crimes Talked About Below, I Was 17 And Prior To This I Had No Criminal Record At All. I Live In North Carolina. In June Of 2010 I (Shamefully) Accompanied 4 &Quot;Friends&Quot; While Breaking Into A House. (I Know I Know, Its Terrible) Anyway, Myself Along With These 4 People Broke Into Someones House In The County I Live In. We Got Away With It. So, 2 Weeks Later, We Did It 2 More Times, In Another County. Again, I Know Its Awful And Terrible. The 3 Times This Took Place, I Either Sat In The Vehicle Or Stood Somewhere Outside The House. I Was The &Quot;Look Out Guy&Quot;. A Few Weeks Down The Road, The Police Came To Question One Of The Guys Involved. He Was The &Quot;Leader&Quot; I Guess You Could Say Of The Whole Thing. He Drove The Car, And Did Most Of The Stealing. Turns Out, At One Of The Houses They Broke Into, A Note Signing Him Out Of School Early Was Found In The Driveway Of One Of The Houses. Well, The Police Questioned Him, And To Sum It All Up, He Cracked. Told The Police Everything. They Only Knew Of Us Being Involved In One Home, And He Told Them Of All Three As Well As Everyone Involved. To Save Some Time, I'M Gonna Jump Ahead Here A Little. The Police Found Stolen Goods In His Vehicle As Well As Another Persons Involved Vehicle. As Well As They Found Out That 2 Other People Involved Pawned Several Of The Items., And The Police Recovered Some Pawned Items As Well, With Ticket Stubs Displaying The Names Of Those Who Pawned Them. They Questioned Everyone But Me. Before They Came To Me, I Went To Them. I Called Up The Next County Over'S Sheriffs Office And Told Them Everything. I Even Rode With A Detective, Pointing Out The Houses We Broke Into, In Doing This, I Hoped I Would Help Myself A Little. Turns Out Down The Road, This Did Nothing But Incriminate Me More, And, Get This, The Officer Whom I Rode With Denies Ever Speaking With Me!?!?!?! I'M Gonna Skip Forward Here To Give You The Upshot Of The Whole Mess. In August Of 2011 I Was Charged With 2 Counts Of Misdemeanor B&E And 2 Counts Of Misdemeanor Larceny. Because My &Quot;Friends&Quot; Lied And Said I Went Into The House In The County I Live In 2 Times To Steal Things. I Spent 3 Days In Jail And Was Placed On Probation For 1 Year, And Ordered To Pay $1200. That'S The Value Of The Thins Taken From The House In My County. Whew, Long Story. Fast Forward A Year I Paid Every Penny Back To The County I Live In, And Served A Successful Probation Term. Well At The Tail End Of My Probation Term For My County, I Finally Get Tried For The 2 Houses That Were Broke Into In The County North Of Mine. Well, This Is What Happened. I Get Charged With 2 More Counts Of Misd. B&E And 2 More Counts Misd. Larceny. Placed On Probation For 18 Months And Ordered By The Courts To Pay A Total Of $5,880!!!!!!!!!!! Here'S Where My Problem Occurs And Where The &Quot;Justice Will Be Served&Quot; Saying Starts To Crumble. In All Of This, I Was The Only One Convicted Of Any Crimes, The Only One Placed On Probation And The Only One Ever Ordered To Pay A Cent Back!! Out Of 5 Total People, Just Me! Ready For Another Curve Ball, When The Da Of The County Of Which The 2 Houses Were Broken Into Read Over The Crimes, He Stated That I Was The Least Involved To The Judge, And The Judge Even Read Off Everyone'S Name Who Was Supposed To Be Charged And Held Liable For The Fines. Fast Forward Till Today, June 5,2013. Nothing Has Changed, No One Else Was Charged, The State Put Everything On Me And It Stuck. I Still Owe The Other County Almost Five Thousand Dollars, And Am Still On Probation. My Probation Will Be Checked Over To See If I Am Complying With The Terms In Few Weeks, And I'M Not. Because I Do Not See It As Justice That I Have To Pay Everyone'S Debt To Society Again. So, My Probation Officer Will Likely Violate Me, And I May Go To Jail Right Then. Or I Will Be Given A Court Date, And Have To Defend Myself As To Why I'M Not Complying. My Question To Anyone On Here, Who Knows Anything About Law Or Court Is, What Should I Do?? Plz Help Me Out Here. I Cant See How Any Judge Can See This As Justice!? There Are Probably Things I Left Out, But That'S About All I Can Remember. I By No Means Think I Have A Right To Get Out Of Paying Anything At All To The Other County, But, I Do Not Think I Should Have To Pay Everyone'S Part Again! If You Have Any Sort Of Helpful Info, Please Share It With Me. Thanks For Reading If You Read The Whole Thing, I Know Its A Book.
First off let me say... paragraphs!! That was hard as heck to read.
I agree with the first answer that above all you need a lawyer. You are entitled to court appointed counsel so take it by all means. Quit worrying about the other people involved. You need to worry about yourself and do anything and everything that is required through probation. Violating that is pure stupidity and will only get you in deeper trouble by being defiant. The judge will have no patience for your little protest and you're only going to make things worse for yourself.
From here on out you need to not do anything at all wrong but abide by what the court has imposed. You're in a big mess but stay out of further trouble and someday you can possibly get this far far behind you.
Since there are multiple charges I don't know if it will be possible but hopefully some day you can get this all expunged from your record. But that is gonna be a couple of years off until you can qualify if at all. So in the meantime get with the program and do what has been required. Get a lawyer to help you get this reduced or at least argued to the judge in a more favorable way for you. You're gonna lose in the worst way every time without a lawyer, period.
Here is a link to expungement law in NC that may someday apply to you http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegis... Read over these but I think the law that may apply to you begins at the bottom of page 3 of this link. You can research lots more online too.
Good luck and I hope this helps!
Describe How A Businesses Can Avoid Litigation?
Treat all customers in a consistant and fair manner, if there is a conflict, write a statement of the episode, have rules in writing that everyone signs off on, have people licensed (i.e. real estate leasing agents or food certifications).
What Kinds Of Technology Do Lawyers Use?
I Am Currently Doing A Project At School For My Careers Class, And They Ask Us What Kind Of Technology Our Career Needs. I Have Not Been Able To Find That Much Information About This
First, lawyers use PCs and servers to prepare documents, spreadsheets, etc. So they also use printers, scanners, etc.
Lawyers use databases and large servers to scan and search large numbers of documents for big cases.
Lawyers use Blackberrys for communication
Lawyers use Internet research, like Lexis and Westlaw, to do their research for cases.
Lawyers use PowerPoint to prepare presentations for cases
Lawyers use overhead projectors during trials
Lawyers use special software like FullAuthority to do Tables of Authorities, CiteCheck to make sure case citations are up to date, document management software like iManage or Hummingbird.***:D
Do I Need A Traffic Lawyer?
My License Is Currently Suspended For Driving Without Insurance 2 Years Ago, But I Went Out To Court For That Ticket And Also The Main Ticket (Speeding) And Paid Fines And Showed I Had Insurance. The Sos Lady Said I Could File A Motion To The Judge And Show Documents That I Had Insurance From The Time I Was Pulled Over To Get The Suspension Lifted Maybe, But Do I Need A Traffic Lawyer? My Only Other Option Is To Get An Sr-22 But That Would Raise My Insurance To 2000/Month Which Is Why I'M Trying To Contest This Since I Had Insurance At The Time
if you have proof you had valid insurance when you got the tickets, the judge should lift the suspension. you don't need a lawyer. why didn't you show this proof two years ago? if you had insurance at the time, none of this would have happened. why did it take this long to show you had insurance when you got the tickets?
