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.

Should I Seek A Lawyer In A Slip And Fall?
I Recently Slipped On Some Water At The Store And Fell On My Hip Which Was Recently Replaced ( 2 Years Ago). As I Fell A Chip Rack Fell On Top Of Me Causing Some Major Bruising On My Arm. Ive Been In Pain For A Few Days Now, My Hip Was X Rayed And Looks To Not Be Broken. It Is Bruised And Possibly Torn Muscle. I Dont See The Ortho For A Few Days Yet. My Husband Has Already Missed Days Off Work And Ive Had To Pay For The X Ray And Doctor Visit. I Do Have Health Insurance But That Doesnt Cover Lost Wages For My Husband Or The Expensive Co Pays. I Am A Stay At Home Mom And Even Though I Dont Get Paid, Im Not Able To Properly Care For My Children As I Can Barely Walk. Im Not A Litigious Person But The Stores Insurance Company Is Calling And I Dont Want To Get Screwed Either?
Need To Know Info
1. Slipped On Water , Didnt Trip Or Cause Myself To Fall
2. Cashier Witnessed The Incident
3. Filled Out An Incident Report At The Store
What Should I Do??
A lawyers fee is usually 33% plus expenses of any settlement you get.
The insurance company does not add more to the settlement to cover the lawyers fee.
You decide to hire the attorney - so it becomes your job to pay him.
A claim is evaluated based on the injury itself. Having a lawyer does not make the claim worth more, just means a piece of the pie goes to him. So instead of the pie being divided by 2 ( you and the medical providers) it gets divided by 3 (you, medical providers and attorney). Just to break even - the attorney has to get 33-40% more than you could have gotten on your own.
So, you have to decide - is it worth giving 33-40% of any settlement you get to an attorney?
Or you could talk to the insurance company and see what they do. Feel them out. If you think that you can work it out with them great. If you feel like you can't and it's worth it to give a very large chunk of any settlement you get to an attorney -you can hire one at any time.
It's your choice if you want to hire an attorney or not. And it's your responsibility to pay him. So, if it's worth it to you to spend the money or give a large chunk of your settlement to an attorney - then hire one. Only you can decide what you want to do.
Hope you get better soon.
Officers Do You Like Or Dislike Defense Lawyers?
My Law Professor, Is An Ex Prosecutor, And Now A Defense Lawyer. I Have Asked Him Many Questions About Defending Murders And Rapist, And Does That Effect Him. He States He Cannot Let It, In Order To Do His Job Correctly. Personally, I Do Not Think I Could Defend A Client That I Knew Murdered Or Raped Someone. This Is Just Me Though. My Question Is As Leo's Do You Tend To Have A Negative Perspective Of Defense Lawyers? Especially, The One That Defend Heinous Criminals?
Absolutely not, everyone that is arrested is entitled to a competent representation under the United States Constitution, and LEO's know that defense attorneys are just doing their job, like the LEO is.
The attorneys that LEO's tend to dislike are the sneaky attorneys that bend the law to the point of breaking it in representing their client.
How would you feel if you were accused of a heinous crime and couldn't find an attorney to represent you? Or if someone framed you for a crime that you didn't commit. And an attorney wouldn't represent you because of the crime that you had committed.
Attorney's who defend people convicted of heinous crimes are often appointed by the Court because the defendant cannot afford legal representation, and in doing so, they must separate the person from the crime, they are accused of committing, and defend that person to the best of their ability. That is why in most jurisdictions, death penalty cases are required to be tried with 2 defense attorneys for the accused. This because of the added burden of the death penalty.
Child Legal Rights? Custody?
So My Parents Are Getting Divorced And My Mom Wants To Move To Start Over. We Currently Live In California And My Dad Is Not Letting Us Go Willingly. So We Have To Have A Child Custody Evaluator/ Child Mediator And We Discovered Through Out Own Experience And That Of Others That She Is Biased. She Seemed Biased In The Session With Me And My Two 12- Year Old Sibilings, And She Said Some Very Innapropriate Things To Us And My Mother. I Am 16 Years Old And I Would Really Do Well With This Move And It Would Be Good For Me. At What Age Am I Legally Allowed To Decide Which Parent I'D Like To Live With (Custody)? I Believe In California It Is 18, But I Really Need Help Getting The Ok To Move There. Any Suggestions Or Legal Tips Is Greatly Appreciated. What Can We Do To Try And Get The Court To Approve The Move Without The Consent Of The Father. He Really Wasnt A Very Actively Involved Dad But He'S Put On A Good Show For The Court And Child Custody Evaluator. We Really Need Help And Any Info That We Could Use To Be Able To Move Is So Appreciated. Many Thanks!
At your age the Court will give great weight to your wishes regarding custody. The 12 year olds' wishes will also be considered, but not as much. But Courts like to keep children together, so your testimony will be a big factor.
If you aren't offered the opportunity to talk to the Judge, your mother should request that you be allowed to do so, in private. Just tell the Judge the truth, be very polite, and try not to be nervous. Don't say really mean things about your Dad, but make it clear that he hasn't been very interested in you in the past and you think that he would lose interest again as soon as the custody issue is settled.
You're going with your Mom, I expect. Good luck.
