4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a legal professional for any reason, you must work closely along with them to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - especially information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, each time. The truth is, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can convince the court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Is It Worth Paying A Dui Lawyer?
Is It Worth Paying A Dui Lawyer For Defense? Can They Reduce Charges?
It's the only chance you have of getting the charges reduced. You won't get them reduced on your own.
In my state, the lawyer goes over all the paperwork and evidence for the arrest and looks for errors. And there is a lot of paperwork with a dui arrest. If he can find a big enough mistake then he can try and get the charges reduced.
If you have friends in law enforcement or the court system, ask around and find out who the best dui lawyer in your area is.
But, expect to pay a $5000 retainer to get started. It's not going to be cheap.
Only you can decide if it's worth it.
What Does The Credentials "Esq" And "P.A." Mean In Attorneys? Why The Difference?
Also, Why Are There Two Names: Lawyer And Attorney?, Thanks
Esquire is a title sometimes appended to the end of a lawyers name. Used as an honorific usually in its abbreviated form, especially after the name of an attorney or a consular officer such as John Smith, Esq.
The "PA" stands for "Practicing Attorney" or an individual recognized by law to be actively working at a profession, especially in law.
Lawyer or attorney...no difference...just different words. Somewhat like "fireman" and "firefighter" or "cop" and "policeman."
My Husband Got Suspended Form His Job Until His Court Day And Will Lose His Job And If He Is Convicted Of An Assault Four, Domestic Violence Against Me And Therefore I Lose Income And My Kids Lose Their Insurance. He Has His Arraingment On The 11Th And The D.A. Sent Me Some Papers Asking Different Questions Like How Has This Affected Me And My Family And What Punishement Do I Think He Should Get And If I Am Willing To Testify. (If He Gets Fired, He Doesn'T Have Much Experience And I Know He Wouldn'T Be Able To Get A Better Job Than He Had And That Will Affect Child Support And The Kids' Insurance..He Works For Wal-Mart Distribution Center. If It Wasn'T For That Fact I Wouldn'T Care But I Can'T Afford The Insurance At My Job And I Don'T Qualify For State Assistance, Supoosedly I Make Too Much Money). If I State Those Things And That I Wouldn'T Be Willing To Testify Would There Be A Chance The D.A. Would Drop The Charges? He Lives In Oregon.
I don't know about the legal side of talking to the D.A., but in Oregon child support is based on the kids needs and a set formula. You can see what this is using the child support guideline calculator http://dcs.state.or.us/calculator/. And usually, he has to provide half of the insurance, and pay half of the medical bills not covered by insurance, no matter what his income is.
Nothing is cast in stone until the divorce is final however, and he doesn't have to pay support until then (but they usually make him backpay). My suggestion is to protect yourself and your kids first, worry about the financials later. In Oregon, able bodied workers can find jobs that should allow him to meet his financial obligations, and the state will take it out of his pay directly.
Is Dr Johnson Williams Dugary A Member Of Senegal Bar Association?
Address: 27, Avenue Jean - Jaures Boite Postale 4000050, Dakar Senegal
Why don't you contact the Senegal Bar Association yourself
That is not at all a Senegalese name and lawyers do not use the term Dr in Senegal.
If this is regarding some girl you met online who claims to be a refugee whose dead father left millions in the bank she needs you to help transfer out of the country, you are caught up in a scam that is more than 10 years old. There is no girl, no father, no millions and no lawyer. There is a scammer in an internet cafe looking for men gullible enough to believe this ridiculous story who will eventually send mony and bank account details
The names of the characters change weekly but it's the same long running scam to steal YOUR money and identity
First of all, refugee camps don't have running water and electricity, and they certainly don't have computers with internet access. Second, there are NO refugee camps in Dakar Senegal. Third, the only people who go to refugee camps are the poorest of the poor -- children of millionnaires to do not to refugee camps. Fourth, there is NO way you could transfer anything out of the bank as you are not a legal signatory on the account and this would be theft if you tried to access any of those funds. Fifth, if this person has a lawyer, then they would not have some stranger help them -- why couldn't the lawyer access their money?
I Want A Civil Rights Attorney To Talk To Do You Or Anyone You Know Have Suggestions?

Hi I live in Oklahoma and am a Pre-Paid Legal member I have had a membership for a little over a year now. With my legal plan I have been helped with a traffic ticket , my divorce ,and a debt that I was told I had to pay , but did not owe. With my membership I saved 6000.00 US. Dollars on my divorce, and 1500.00 US. On that debt, and got out of the ticket that would have cost me 250.00 US. Dollars. A Pre-Paid Legal Life Events Legal Plan SM gives you access to quality law firms for $26 a month or less. To sum this up I copped some info. From their web page. Have you ever...
Been overcharged for a repair?
Received a speeding ticket?
Purchased a home?
Tried to return a defective product?
Lost a security deposit?
Signed a contract?
Prepared a will?
Even though most people find themselves in these situations, the majority do not seek the advice or help of a qualified lawyer. Why?
It may cost too much.
They may not know where to begin.
The process is intimidating.
You only get as much justice as you can afford. If you don't know your rights, you simply don't have any! The top 10% of income earners can afford to have a lawyer on retainer and are accustomed to asking their lawyer for advice before making decisions. What about you?

How Come People Always Ask Lawyers Questions That Only Cops Can Answer ?
BUT police officers are NOT attorneys nor lawyers; most often they memorize a list of laws and make up the rest as they go along, or repeat whatever they hear others say without even finding out if it's true or not. That's why they are so respectful of attorneys and lawyers and oftentimes of paralegals, too.
Cops cannot answer legal questions; they are not attorneys nor lawyers and their jobs are to enforce, not to explain legalities... nor can Notary Public personnel answer legal questions or give opinions on law matters to any would-be client or person UNLESS they ARE paralegals or attorneys or lawyers (or judges, for that matter).
Police that specialize in certain crimes are somewhat familiar (or have a working familiarity with) certain aspects of laws governing that area of the crime they specialize in. For example, police that specialize in robbery as opposed to those in homicide or narcotics... just as doctors and even attorneys are now specializing in their particular field of expertise. I work with an attorney specializes in Bankruptcy and Real Estate yet he doesn't know much about Divorce or Family Law; another attorney I often work with specializes in Bankruptcy and Divorce but doesn't know much about Real Estate. I know another attorney who sounds like a medical doctor because of his understanding of anatomy, physiology and medical terms because he specializes in Personal Injury cases; he has somehow managed to attend a few autopsies, too. But, these attorneys do NOT know much about traffic tickets or traffic court and what they know about Landlord/Tenant Court procedures is less than what I know (I used to work with the Legal Aid in organizing LEGAL rent strikes back in the 70s, and I often appeared in court with tenants and affidavits and photos I had taken).
Police REALLY do not make the decision to arrest people unless they KNOW something beforehand or they've consulted with an Assistant District Attorney to explain aspects of the law they suspect are being broken.
Do not rely on television police personnel... it's all a nice fantasy... nice make-believe that REALLY deviates from the truth and reality.
WHO do you think trains police trainees in legal matters? And WHO do you think writes those legal books they read and study from? ATTORNEYS and LAWYERS.
I had one police officer tell me that I couldn't park before 12pm and I politely told him that there was NO such thing as 12am or 12pm... and he actually had the nerve to tell me that I didn't know what I was talking about, and he suggested that I was stupid... he obviously judged me by my long hair (worn in a ponytail, now graying) and I asked him if 12am was during the daylight or night... and he first said, it was during the day and I asked, "REALLY?" and he said, "No, I mean, night..." and I explained that the whole scenario of time not standing still... and suggested that he take the time to call up the Maritime Department and ask. So he asked me, "OK, wise-a.ss, what do you call 12 o'clock at night?" and I said, "I call that 12 midnight and during the day, I call it 12 'noon." The sign was taken away for a couple of days and a new one put up which indicates that there is no parking allowed before 12 'noon! (The neighbors started calling the sign Calico's Sign)
A few days later, he saw me and came over and said he and his friends got into a debate and he actually won a bet at the precinct since he discovered that there is no such thing as 12am or 12pm but there IS a 12 midnight and 12 'noon, as I had told him. (He later discovered that I was his daughter's teacher at the local college and he really felt bad... and even worse when I did his daughter's wedding photos; we've been good friends now for over 18 years).
