4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want a lawyer for any reason, you need to work closely along with them so that you can win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important ways to help your legal team allow you to 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 everything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most importantly information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, every time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last minute details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Need A Child Custody Lawyer?
Been Helping Take Care Of My Son Since I Found Out About Him (She Didn'T Tell Me Until He Was 3 1/2 That He Was Possibly Mine) She Of Course Has Custody Because Of South Dakota Laws And I Would Need To Go To Court To Get Any Rights. Just Today She Told Me She Is Getting Married In Aug Then Moving Out Of State And Taking My Son. I Need A Lawyer But Can'T Afford One Right Now Would I Be Able To Get Free Legal Help In South Dakota. I Am In The Military And Make Decent Money But Have A Lot Of Bills And Money Is Tight And Child Support Will Make It Tighter (She Was Living In My House For 6 Months With My Son And Just Moved Out And Lost Her Job And Filled For Child Support In Early Dec They Want Me To Pay 700$ A Month Based Off My Income Including My Bah And Bas And 19000 In Back Support) So Yes Back To What I Asked Is There A Way For Me To Get Free Legal Help Making About 40000 A Year In Pay?
Generally speaking, legal aid goes by your income, not your bills. They don't care about your bills, just what amount of money you have coming in. If you have a normal income, you won't qualify for legal aid. You have to be at or below poverty level to qualify. I know, because I have legal aid myself.
But the reality is, even if you qualified for legal aid, they don't generally offer representation for custody/support/visitation cases. They simply send you paperwork in the mail, explaining rights. Or in some cases, they offer a consultation over the phone. The physical (in court) representation is almost always reserved for what they consider priority cases. Restraining orders, domestic violence, etc.
I had legal representation for free through legal aid for my restraining order hearings, every year. My lawyer got me a lifetime RO against my ex, & she OFFERED to represent me if my psychotic, crazy, abusive ex ever tried to file for rights to my child. So the only reason I would get free representation for my visitation/family court issue, is because my lawyer has known me for a couple of years now, & she has represented me, & KNOWS that my ex is a SERIOUS, LIFE THREATENING DANGER to my child. If he wasn't, then I wouldn't have an attorney. But I have one "on retainer" BECAUSE it's a safety matter.
Your situation doesn't sound at all like safety, but typical custody/support/visitation cases.... which are a dime a dozen. There are SOOOOO many of them, that legal aid cannot possibly offer free representation for family court cases, without any extenuating circumstances.
Your best bet if to try to get a free consultation with a lawyer in your area, find out their hourly rate... see if they will let you make payments.
What Is The Deference Between The Contracts Manager And The Legal Advisor In A Construction Company?
Is It Necessary That The Contracts Manager In A Construction Company Must Be An Engineer , Or He Could Be A Lawer?
a contracts manager needn't be a lawyer. paralegals can be contract managers. and the contract manager needn't be an engineer. a legal advisor has to be a lawyer because if they are giving legal advice and aren't, then they are practicing law without a license.
File Grievance With Count Bar Association?
We Had A Terrible Experience With Our Bankruptcy Attorney. After Months Of Unanswered Calls And Emails, We Decided To Dismiss Our Case Because We Were Not Comfortable With The Information We Had Been Given. We Then Received A Nasty Correspondence From The Partner. We Want To Report The Firm, What Is The Best Courtse Of Action?
And If We File A Grievance, Will We Need To Appear In Court?
Filing a Complaint against an Attorney is not subject to any Court appearances, etc.
It is strictly done within the Bar Association by their Grievance Committee and is done in private.
Just turn over all of the information you have in the matter (saving copies for yourself) - stating that you feel that you have a "grievance" against the firm/attorney, along with your reasons, and let the Bar Association Grievance committee do the rest.
They will notify you in due time or before to get further information as the inquiry develops.
Legal Advice- Serious Help?
Ok, My Girlfriend Is 17 And I'M 18. She Is In A Really Bad Situation With Her Family. Her Mom And Dad Are Divorced With Joint Custody.

Dhs Is Involved But Isn'T Doing Anything Right Now Because The Tulsa, Ok Dhs Is One Of The Worst In The Nation And She'S Too Old I Think. It'S 1 Year Until 18 And Idk If She'S Going To Be Okay. Ill Take Care Of Her Or Do Whatever I Can.... Help? Advice Please? Her Mom Is Okay With Me But Her Dad Isn'T. Her Dad Controls My Girlfriends Mom So That Sucks Too. What Do I Do?
Her dad cant' force her to be in a mental hospital. If she is there, then it's because she needs to be there. Because it's very expensive, they would not being doing that except because they really care about her.
But I can't say the same for you.
Running away is illegal and she will be arrested and either put back in the hospital or in juvenile. If you or your family helps her, they are committing a crime.
You aren't allowed to do anything. She is not too old. She is a legal child, that means they can be involved.
You aren't taking care of her, let the professionals take care of h er.
You need to back off and let things settle down. Do NOT encourage her to run away. She will just get bad and end up in mental trouble again.
She is allowed to do as her parents say. You are allowed to visit her with parental permission, but not otherwise. You are not allowed to have sexual contact with her (anything past first base) because she is not able to consent due to her mental status.
I'm sure she has you convinced they are all evil, but she has problems and she is getting the help she needs. Don't make her go back to where she was when this happened. Work with her parents to help her, not against them.
YOu could both end up in jail.
Basically I'M Looking For A Comprehensive Database On Paleontology, Featuring The History Of Life Start To Finish, Palaeos.Com Was The Best For This Sort Of Information, But Now It'S Shut Down, So Now I Have To Use A Lower Quality Replica Site (Palaeos.Org) Are There Any Good Databases Out There On The Subject, Preferably Presenting Free Documents Such As Published Papers Ect.....
"are there any good databases out there on the subject, preferably presenting free documents such as published papers ect....."
Websites tend to be put together by enthusiastic amateurs or students. Palaeos, for example, was originally the work of a lawyer and an unemployed philosopher and, had they known how much effort was going to be involved, they probably wouldn't have started at all. Professional paleontologists tend to be too busy with other things, and unable to cope with producing ambitious websites. As another amateur, responsible for putting together Mesozoic Eucynodonts, I have good reason for knowing no professional researcher would have managed that. (A number have told me so.)
There are lots of databases about of varying quality and reliability, but I don't know of anything quite as outrageous as Palaeos turned out to be. Like mine, they tend to be more specialized; on cynodonts, pterosaurs, ammonites or whatever.
Some journals provide archives of published papers, but you have to keep in mind there are dull but important issues involved such as the financial viability of the journal, copyright legislation and so on. Acta Palaeontologica Polonica and the American Museum of Natural History publications come readily to mind. Another useful source can simply be contacting the corresponding author. Polite enquiries and short expressions of interest are often (but not always) productive. They might be Lord only knows quite where in Patagonia or Inner Mongolia, or perhaps simply don't have a pdf!
Should you really feel the need for a thoroughly comprehensive database, then you're allowed to try compiling one. However, you'll need to find lots and lots and ever so many lots of time and plenty of patience. Oh, and don't expect to have much of a social life!
What Things Should I Ask Our Be Aware Ifetc When Dealing With A Small Business Lawyer?
I'M Hiring A Lawyer To Negotiate A Least.. If You Have Experience With This Can You Help Me With Which Questions I Should Ask Or What I Should Avoid Or ?? .. Thanks
Well, the questions are different depending on whether you're the landlord or the tenant. While you don't specifically state it in your question, the tenor of the question indicates that you're the tenant. Before you hire an attorney, decide what's important to you, and how the attorney can help you to that end. Among the dozens of issues important to commercial tenants, here are the ones that I see come up repeatedly. Initial term; leasing fee (flat or based on gross sales); common area fees; costs of operation (also known as the type of "net" lease...commonly triple net which means the tenant is responsible for all monthly expenses); termination by landlord; termination by tenant; term after initial contract expires; required annual disclosures (if lease based on gross OR if parking allotments are made by gross sales pro rata). There are MANY more. You have to figure out what is important to you, then let the attorney tell you how he/she can make that happen. Good luck.
