4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a legal representative for any excuse, you should work closely with them in order to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're planning 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 likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most especially information one other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, each and every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or even be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Career Advice? Accounting? Law Enforcement?
I Am A Junior Accounting Major With A Minor In Criminal Justice. I Am Planning On Getting My Masters Degree In Accounting And Getting A Cpa Licence.
I Don'T Really Have A Grasp On What I Would Like To Do Once I Get My Masters And Cpa.
On One Hand, I Want To Have A Job In Some Kind Of Law Enforcement, However The I Feel Like The Salary Wont Be Comparable To What I Could Make With An Accounting Job Once I Have Climbed The Ladder In A Corporate Role. Will Becoming A Higher Rank In As A Police Officer Be Easier With A Masters In Accounting?
So I Guess What I Am Trying To Ask Is Whether Or Not The Salary Differential Should Be The Reason As To Why I Choose To Go With An Accounting Job And Climb The Ropes To Hopefully Be A Senior Accountant Or A Cfo Or Something Along Those Lines Or Go Into Law Enforcement And Climb The Ranks There.??
The FBI hires CPAs to do organized crime and white collar crime investigations. If you want to do law enforcement, that'd be a good way to go, assuming you can meet their criteria for physical and character fitness.
Truthfully, the best way to go as far as pay goes is to go into public accounting and stay in long enough to make partner. In industry, the highest you will go without having someone die while you work there is controller, and those guys usually don't get paid over $70k. The only way to make CFO is if the CFO who's there while you're Controller retires or moves to another company. It's incredibly boring work and you have to contend with a lot more office politics than in public accounting. Last, every CEO in the country will view you as an expense, not an asset, and won't give a crap about you or your work. So far as they're concerned, the only reason they have accountants is because SOX requires them to, and that's usually how they treat you. Where I used to work, they laid off half our accounting department (starting with the old ones) and required us to start working weekends with no bonus or raise so they could hire more sales people and open a call center. Personally, I'd rather mop floors than be back in industry.
A lot of people go the Big-4 route, but for work/life balance and all that, you're better off going with a medium-sized local or regional firm. Big-4, you're pretty much guaranteed to burn out in two years and get stuck doing really specialized stuff you can't take anywhere else. It might sound interesting to work on tax provisions for a Dutch subsidiary until you do it for six months straight and find out no one outside of Deloitte or KPMG needs to know how to do that or wants to pay for you to do it. You could lateral over into industry, but again, that is entirely over-rated.
What Can You Do With A Law Degree Becoming An Attorney?
I'M Wrapping Up My Masters In Economics Soon And I'M Trying To Figure Out What To Do Afterwards. I'M Into Public Policy, Fiscal Analysis, Economic Development, And International Trade/Finance. I'Ve Heard That Econ Has A Pretty Strong Draw Towards Law School, But I Have Little Interest In Becoming A Trial Attorney. What Other Occupations/Fields/Career Paths Can Be Opened Up With Obtaining A Law Degree?
Actually, most attorneys rarely, if ever, go to "trial." Even those attorneys involved in litigation rarely go. The only "trial" attorneys, anymore, are those specializing in criminal law (DAs, ADAs, AUSAs, defense attorneys) and those doing some types of personal injury work.
Almost everyone else is a "transactional" attorney of some sort. They're filing papers with the SEC for a stock deal (ore reviewing the papers for the SEC). They're filing papers with the FTC/DOJ for a merger (or reviewing the papers for the FTC/DOJ). They're doing contract deals--business, real estate, trade. Even litigation attorneys are rarely in court as most cases settle--it's actually too costly to go to "trial."
And there are a plethora of attorneys doing exactly what you have an interest in. You can work as counsel to a Senate/House committee. *Every single* federal agency has attorneys working for it and most are evaluating the policy from a legal standpoint (does it conform to what Congress has mandated, are our rulemaking procedures correct, etc.). Work for the DOJs tax division. Work for the World Bank or IMF. Work for USAID. Work for the State Department.
You can do the areas you've indicated an interest in either from a private firm perspective or a governmental agency perspective. Both will provide several opportunities. After some time spent in either of these, you can go in-house counsel at a corporation doing the kind of work you find interesting.
Here's the one piece of advice I will give you: don't go to law school unless you *know* you want to practice law. This is an unfortunate situation: how will you know you want to practice law unless you go to law school? Can't help you with that one. I just knew.
Here's why I give that advice: law schools are expensive and becoming increasingly so (and those that are affordable are likely to be less well-regarded--although this is not always the case). By the time you graduate, pretty much the only profession that can help you pay back your loans in a timely manner is the legal profession. It used to be that a law degree was helpful for any profession that you chose to go into. While that's still the case, not just "any profession" will give you the salary you need to pay back your loans.
Woohoo for you if you can pay for school without going into debt, however, and what I just said becomes null: you will benefit in almost ANY profession from having a law degree. Doing well in law school shows a commitment to a goal, a degree of perfection, and intelligence. It will be a benefit to you in whatever job you take.
Are Their Any Free Service Online Were I Could Ask A Real Lawyer Questions About Legal Questions For Free?
Doubtful. Lawyers spend lots of time and tens of thousands of dollars gaining legal knowledge, which is the only thing they have to make a living. Would a computer repairman repair a computer for free? No - a lawyer is not going to answer legal questions for free - that is his livelihood and business. He's not just going to give it away.
What Are A Fathers Rights If He Has Had Nothing To Do With His 31Month Old Daughter Since She Was 9Months Old, He Hasn'T Got His Name On Her Birth Certificate Through His Choice And Has Sent 1 Birthday Card Since? Please Dont Judge And Tell Me What U Think Is Right, Im Asking If Anyone Knows For Sure, Thanks :)
Ok I went thru the same thing I had my daughter and her dad didnt even bother with her but as soon as I got a new man then he wanted her.. Al fathers have rights weather they are around or not or if they signed the birth cert I was advised to seek an emergency custody hearing that way you can reamin with custody and then go from there even though he didnt sign he can always request a paternity test to prove he the father.. Like I said your best bet is to contact the courts and see what options you have.. Good Luck and God Bless :)
Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer For Immigrant Purposes(Canada)?
I Want To Immigrate To Canada, I Completely Know The Rules But Decided To Hire A Lawyer Because My First Language Is Not English Or French And I Don'T Want To Have Grammer Errors In My Application!!! Do U Recommend Hiring An Attorney? Do U Know A Good Attorney?
Any Comments Is Appreciated.
This is a link for some immigration lawyers in the Vancouver, BC, area. I couldn't tell you a good one from a bad one but the link gives some guidelines on how to pick a lawyer and also gives the names of some.
That said, I don't know if you would be wiser to pick a lawyer located in Canada or one who specializes in immigration to Canada but is situated in the country you are coming from.
First Time Offender Of Dui In Pa...Help!?
So This Past Weekend I Was Visiting Some Friends Out Of Town. We All Are 21 And Were Doing Some Drinking Throughout The Weekend. On Saturday I Stopped Drinking At 10Pm. Around 2 O'Clock My Ex Calls Me Saying She Was In Trouble And She Needed My Help. I Thought 4 Hrs Since My Last Beer I'M Fine.
So On The Way To Pick Her Up I Missed A Turn And Turned Into A Parking Lot There Were 4 Cops Standing There Nd Jumped In Front Of My Car And Told Me To Stop. Me And My Buddy Were In The Car. I Cooperated To The Fullest, While Being Tested For Dui, Breathalyzer (Which The Officer Didn'T Tell Me What I Blew) Follow Test, Line Test, And Stand On One Foot Test. Apparently I Failed When I Know I Did Everything Correctly. I Was Taken To Station And Got A Blood Test. I Got No Paperwork No Business Card, Nothing. All They Said Was They Would Call Me In 4 Weeks When Results Were In...What Should I Do? I Haven'T Had Anything Serious On My Record Besides A Speeding Ticket In 2 Years (Underage 4 Years Ago, And Disorderly Conduct 2 Years Ago) Freaking Out Please Someone Give Me Advise And Info On How To Go About This!!!
First time DUI is serious,.. but going to jail/being incarcerated is a VERY unlikely outcome. Typically the worst case scenario involves losing your license for a period of time - fines, sometimes mandatory alcohol education courses and this being on your record. (As DUI's are cumulative and each subsequent one results in stiffer punitive and monetary penalties) -- This is important as in many states the 3rd (and sometimes extended to 4th) DUI results in a Felony -- which is quite serious.
Though this is your FIRST, so try not to worry too much. The best thing you can do here is learn never to drive after drinking unless you are ABSOLUTELY positive enough time has passed to be under the legal limit. (Which is impossible to know unless you let 10-12 hours pass in most cases -- or you have a very accurate personal BAC monitor ).
Other than this -- start researching attorney's (lawyers) that handle DUI cases in your area. While you won't need one to stay out of jail on your first offense.. if you/ or your family can afford one it will give you your best chances at mitigating the charge against you. Sometimes you can get it plead down, or dismissed (best case). In other examples there are deferred entry of judgement (pre-trial diversionary programs) for cases like yours where you go through court ordered measures (classes, drug testing, and such) for a period of 6months or so (they all vary) and if you successfully complete the program you DUI charge is dismissed (despite otherwise having been guilty of the charge if you went before the judge/jury).
So try not to worry -- learn a lesson about driving,.. and start looking into attorney's (if you can afford it). Most will offer free consultation based on your case -- the first attorney you contact isn't always the one you should go with, plus the fee's they charge will vary as well. If you do end up going with an attorney don't just pick them based on the 'cheapest' --
You'll be fine,..
