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.

Where Can I Find An Attorney To File A Class Action Suit Against The Criminal Organizations Of Ebay And Paypal
I Have Conclusive Proof Of Criminal Fraud Perpetrated By These Companies,Besides Whats Already Available Online,Check These Links Www.Paypalwarning.Com Www.Paypalsucks.Com
not having read the links, i wish to point out 2 things:
1. it is VERY difficult to find an attorney to work on a class action lawsuit! why? well, they just love big retainers, ya know?
2. since they want a cut of the settlement, to do one, they must know that they have a class of people that were wronged that will join as plaintiffs.
i head through the grapevine that paypal is owned by the man that opened eBay. if that's true, i'll bet is is secret information. but it makes sense.
paypal is getting big because everyone is so fearful of identity theft. paypal acts like an umbrella so that your personal account information and numbers are hidden, but for that service, there is rather a hefty, if you ask me, price to pay (fees for everything).
you would not need a private attorney to prosecute them if they commit CRIMES. crime prosecution is handled by the district attorney for the location that the wrongful parties have their offices in (registered addresses, usually). paypal is, in essence, a bank, which are controlled by BIG banking laws.
you'd only need a private lawyer if it must be a CIVIL action. do you have enough people that these so-called crimes were committed against to prosecute or sue in civil court?
How Can I Find Free Lawyers?
I Am Looking At Possibly Sue Case And Need One. Any Websites Good?
Why would a lawyer work for free? They will occasionally do what's called pro bono work, but only for something important.
If you are suing for injury or something along those lines, the attorneys usually don't get paid until the case settles. But you have to have a good case because they are taking a risk.
It's probably better to ask around for recommendations from people. A lot of our clients come from word of mouth, but also websites and the phone book.
Legal aid won't help if you are suing someone else, but they might refer you to a low cost lawyer. They will help people who are poor defend against a lawsuit.
What Would Be The Ethical Things For A Defense Lawyer To Do In The Following Situation?
A Defense Lawyer Is Defending Someone Accused Of A Violent Crime Such As Rape, Murder, Or Assault, And The Lawyer Knows The Client Is Guilty Because The Client Confessed To Him Or He Has Access To Evidence That Clearly Shows The Client Is Guitly.
Is It Unethical For The Lawyer To Try To Get The Client Declared &Quot;Not Guilty&Quot; So He Can Walk Free Unpunished, Or Is The Attorney'S Only Obligation To His Client?
Or Does The Attorney Have A Moral And Ethical Obligation To Society To Insure The Guilty Party Is Punished?
What Is The Bigger Purpose: Defending The Client Or Defending Society?
Look at it this way: If the prosecution doesn't have enough evidence to convict a person, and that person has exercised his right to remain silent when speaking to the police, should the authorities be able to lay a charge with the expectation that the accused will talk to his lawyer, and expect that they'll be able to rely on those statements to the lawyer in court?
It completely undermines the right to remain silent and the right to counsel, if your statements to your lawyer are fair game for making out a case against you.
That said, such knowledge isn't without a consequence. If an accused confesses to his lawyer, that lawyer's duty to the court prevents him from being able to adduce evidence of things he knows not to be true. Thus, alibi evidence is off the table, evidence that somebody else is the guilty party is off the table...basically, any evidence that the accused is innocent cannot be adduced, because the defence lawyer would be knowingly misleading the court, and thus violating his duty.
Still, the lawyer still has a duty to challenge the prosecution's case against the accused. If the prosecution doesn't have the witnesses and/or physical evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, the court cannot convict, and it's the defence lawyer's duty to see that the court realizes that it cannot convict.
It it's not an admission, but physical evidence in the lawyer's possession, then other obligations kick in. A lawyer can't conceal evidence. (There are some grey areas if he intends to bring it up in court himself, but he can't just take the murder weapon and hide it away.) In Canada, at least, there's a practice trick called the 'brown bagging'. If a defendant brings you the murder weapon and tells you to deal with it (and refuses to take it away himself)...defence counsel can't just bring it to the police himself; it would be easy enough for the police to zero in on the suspect just by watching who he represents in court. Instead, defence counsel should put the object into a paper bag, retain another lawyer (thus invoking privilege with the other lawyer), and have the other lawyer bring the object to the police, telling them only that it might be relevant to some investigation.
I Need Some Consultation Regarding This Legal Situation..?
Someone I Know And His Friend, Have Been Arrested For Carrying Heroin In Their Car. This Guy I Know, Which We'Ll Call &Quot;John&Quot;. John Was Driving The Car, This Car Belongs To His Friend'S Mom. He Was Begged By His Friend To Drive Him To Pa, And Was Arrested On The Way There. Now The Mom Of John'S Friend Went John'S Girlfriend To Retrieve John'S Identification Proof Of Address And Work And She Did Not Consult John'S Mom About Actions. Can I Please Get Some Ideas About What To Do And The Reasons For Why The Friend'S Mom Took The Actions She Did, And If She Was Right Or Wrong On Doing So.
As far as I know there's no reason John's friend's mom should need this information, I would suggest not making it available to her. John needs to seek legal counsel as soon as possible about what his options are. If he is found to have not been aware that he was transporting an illegal substance he should be okay but I wouldn't give out any information unless his attorney advises it's okay. In either case, legal counsel should be his first step because they can walk him through everything he'll need to know. He should make sure to ask as many questions as possible about his options. Best of luck!
My Wife'S Lawyer Is Abusing The System. My Lawyer Won'T Do Anything About It. I Know There Is A Lot Of Paperwork, But It Seems For A 6 Month Marriage 3 Faxes A Day For Over A Year Is A Bit Much. Not To Mention The Excuses They Give To Bring My Lawyer And I Into Court At Least Once A Month On Stupid, Unrelated Motions. This Is Only An Effort To Rack Up My Lawyer Fees. I Talked To My Lawyer And His Response Is &Quot;I Don'T Want To Rock The Boat With The Judge&Quot;... But I'M Up To 12K. Getting A New Lawyer Is Out Of The Question As I Have Noooooo Money ( It'S All Going To Her, The House And Bils Right Now.) And He'S Working &Quot;Pro-Bono&Quot; If You Will Until After The Final Hearing... What Can I Do Or Say?
I just watched an in-law go through something like this.
It was just horrible. As I understand it, he ended up with 200$ a month left over to put a roof over his head and feed himself after he pays monthly debts and child support and has been draining his retirement fund to survive. It ain't workin' out so well for him. She has the house and child support.
The only thing that seems rational to me is to think up a good case to plead directly to your wife. She is losing money, too, since she probably being charged out the whazoo for legal services.
Sit down and do some numbers of what it is costing right now to do this with lawyers, and project some numbers of how ridiculous it could get in future at this rate. Is there a way you can convince your wife that you can decide on a divorce settlement where she will get MORE than she would if she proceeded with the lawyer? And hopefully, so you won't get any deeper in debt? I don't know if kids, or child support or claims to future earnings is part of the deal...if there is a way where she can see that NOT bankrupting you is in her future interest, like you agreeing to pay for something, anything, that might be of value to her? I imagine your relationship with her is pretty tense right now, but if you can be really, really genuine and slightly (but not sickeningly) pitiful, she might soften and go for a signed agreement from you.
And yes, 3 faxes a day for over a year does indeed sound like too much for a 6 month marriage. I can only think that you have a lot of assets still to be milked dry.
Geez, I wish there were a Better Lawyers Bureau, like there is a Better Business Bureau, where people could post their warnings against loser lawyers.
Car Accident Question!!! Tired Of Waiting For Lawyer?
Late July 06 I Was In A Car Accident With A Man And His Wife Who Ran A Red Light And Hit The Passenger Side Of My Car. He Hit The Whole Side Of My Car And Broke The Axle And Ruined Just The Whole Car Out Of Whack! I Had A Witness Who Stopped To Help He Was Going The Opposite Way Of Me So We Had The Same Green Light And Stayed With Me Until The Cops Came. He Did Get A Ticket For Running The Light. I Did Go To The Hospital And Went To Physical Therapy For My Back And I Got A Hold Of A Lawyer, They Said The Car Was Fully Insured But It Wasnt His Car And His Name Wasnt On The Insurance Coverage And Theres Really Nothign They Can Do!!! Is That Really Serious!!! This @#$$# Ruined My Car And He Doesnt Have To Pay For Nething????!! The Lawyer Takes Forever Getting Back At Me So What Should I Do?? Help Please! I Havent Driven That Car Cause Im Waiting For It To Get Fixed And The Passenger Door Cant Even Open Its Getting The Transmission Redone $650.00 Had The Right Wheel Axle Thingy$225!!!
The majority of P.I. lawyers don't get involved in the property damage aspect of claims b/c there's no money in it for them...they don't get the kickbacks from the shops like they do from the doctors.......
Whether the other guy has insurance or not isn't an excuse for not mitigating your damages. If you have insurance to cover your car then you better well get your car fixed...you're hurting no one but yourself.
As for the guys insurance....just b/c there's a valid insurance card in the vehicle doesn't make the insurance policy valid. Every insurance policy is different, and yes the insurance can deny coverage if someone other than the NAMED INSURED or LISTED DRIVER(S) is driving the vehicle...there are some policies out there that are that strict.
If your state is a state that allows the actions of the driver to be imputed to the registered owner of the car...you're gonna have to pursue the registered owner in civil court. If you're barred from pursuing the registered owner, you'll have to pursue the driver in civil court or their insurance company. The driver may have a valid policy that covers your accident, but you or your insurance company will have to find this out.
