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.

Will Someone Go To Jail On A First Offense Felony Dui In Ca That Killed Two People?
I Was Reading This Article And I Started Wondering Whats Going To Happen To His Girl? Im In No Way Related To Them Or Know Them. Its Sad To Think What Can Happen In An Instant. But I Dont Think She Should Get Away With A Easy Sentence Because It Killed 2 People.
If for some reason this was charged as felony DUI (which is a DUI and driving which causes bodily injury to another), there would be a minimum five day jail sentence (that is minimum--more could be imposed). However, if, in fact, the driver was DUI, it is improbable that this would be charged as anything less than vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated (Pen C 191.5). There is actually no minimum sentence for that offense, but some substantial time in custody is usual. The maximum sentence is either 10 years in prison (if there was also gross negligence), or 4 years in prison (if there was not).
Statutory Versus Case Law?
Whats The Difference Between Statutory Law And Case Law?
Statutes are created by the legislature. Case law is the law that is created by judges who try to interpret the statutory law and make it fit within the constitution.
Someone, who I cannot remember, but it was a famous person said once that, "there are 2 things you never want to see being made, sausages, and laws."
If you remember your 4th grade school, you were taught how a person writes a law, proposes a "bill" to the legislature and if the houses of the legislature agree, it goes to the govenor (or president) to be signed, if signed it becomes law. Also, that the US has a three branch government, the legislature, to make the laws, the executive, to execute the laws, and the judicial branch, to keep the legislature and the executive branches within the constitution by deciding if the laws are proper, and if they are being applied in a constitutional manner.

When I Was In Jail, I Became Sick And Still Need Medical Attention. What Kind Of Lawyer Should I Use To Sue?
I Do Know That This Jail Has Been Sued. This Place Is Supposed To Be Shut Down. They Throw You In Asbestos-Filled Cells With Illegal Immigrants. This Place Is Over Populated, And They Have Even Fed Us Pigeon! I Have A Form That Needs To Be Filled, And I Have No Idea How To Do This Myself. I Seriously Need Lawyer Assistance, But I Don'T Know Who To Ask. This Jail Is Located In Phoenix, Arizona. There Is Something Set Aside Called &Quot;Hart Vs. Hill.&Quot; I Have An &Quot;Inmate Legal Service&Quot; Form To Take Action Against Durango Jail. People Have Done This, Successfully, But I Don'T Know Who Can Help Me. I Would Love Some Advice! Help!
Well, since there are no asbestos-filled cells in the united states that feed inmates pigeon, I might suggest contacting a fictional lawyer. They are the most qualified at handling cases like this.
Durango jail is operating with full authorization of the state and has a licensed medical facility staffed 24 hours per day as required by law. You would not have a case simply because you got sick while you were there. You would need to prove that your illness is directly caused by their gross negligence or willful misconduct, and that they failed to respond with appropriate medical attention after you followed proper procedures to bring the illness to their attention. I have no idea why you bother mentioning illegal immigrants. They have nothing to do with anything.
Your inmate legal service form is fine...if you are still locked up. You are not still locked up, however, so this form will do nothing for you. You could always try contacting a lawyer who specializes in litigation, but I will be very surprised if you find one willing to take your case on contingency since your chances of winning are almost non-existent.
Note to Tippy's Mom: Although I find the irony quite amusing, the word is spelled "retarded".
Note to Ms. Kitty: Malpractice lawyers only handle cases against doctors, hospitals, and medical clinics, not jails.
Asbestos lawyer? They have asbestos lawyers where you are from?
Are You Emploed As A Lawyer? How Long Did It Take You To Get Work And Did You Have To Re-Locate?
Not a lawyer but husband works for a prestigious law firm in Los Angeles. The really good firms pick from the cream of the crop from prime law schools (Harvard, Yale, Stanford...).
It took a co-worker's daughter about 9 months to find work with a law firm. She went to law school in San Diego.
