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.

Who Likes Lawyers?
More Specifically, Who Really Likes Trial Lawyers? You Know, The Guys On Tv Commercials All The Time Asking If You'Ve Recently Been In A Wreck, Been Hurt, Etc.
Some lawyers are honest and hardworking individuals trying to help people and support their families. They fight each day and put up with a lot of crap to pass laws that benefit you and get you money to pay your bills when you've been taken advantage of by insurance companies, businesses or joe schmo. Other lawyers are not so good. All they're interested in is themselves. Unfortunately all you hear about (or care about) are the ones that take advantage of people. There's good guys and bad guys in every line of work.
Yes those commercials are annoying but they have to advertise and get your attention to get business like everyone else does. What commercials do you really remember? The ones that are simple or the ones that are over the top and annoying?
Who Is The Best Criminal Defense Lawyer In Nyc? A Friend Is Being Charged Under Rico And Needs And Answer.?
RICO violations can be complicated, and dealing with every legal issue is overwhelming to most people. What your cousin needs is an attorney with a sophisticated understanding of federal and state RICO laws, as well as a successful track record. There is one firm I highly recommend, and another I think might help as well.
I’ve heard some really good things about The Blanch Law Firm’s Civil/RICO practice. They’re criminal defense attorneys spent years in different district attorneys’ offices and they have an “insider’s” understanding of areas of the law such as RICO. They understand how RICO investigations work and how government officials collect information. Overall, they’re a very experienced criminal defense firm with the highest rankings on Martindale-Hubbell (a law firm registry). Various clients had positive comments about the firm, and their attorneys (Ryan Blanch, Lawrence J. Fredella, Edward J McQuat, Douglas M. Schneider, Gregory L. Smith and Kimberly Summers) have represented both small and large criminal defense cases.
Another attorney who has some experience is Jared J. Scharf. He personally handles or supervises every aspect of every case from beginning to end with the assistance of Adam L. Scharf. Also, they do not accept new cases that will diminish their ability to provide focused attention and high-quality advocacy to their existing clients.
Studying Family Law.....?
I Am About To Start My Bachelors In Political Science, And I Have An Associates In Criminal Justice, But After Thinking Long And Hard I Would Like To Practice Family Law. How Can I Go About It, What Would Be The Ideal Courses To Take, Or Just Simply Any Advice Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
If you want to practice law you would have to go to Law School.

I would suggest going to law school and doing the courses that are related to family law.
I Am A 22 Year Old Unemployed Single Mother In The Middle Of A Divorce, I Need A Pro-Bono Attorney.?
My Divorce Was Supposed To Be Uncontested, But My Husband Showed Up At The Hearing With An Attorney, So I Got A 30 Day Continuence. Legal Aid Is Not Being Very Helpful, My Husband Has Not Paid Child Support In 2 Years, And I Need Legal Help, But Can'T Afford To Pay A Lawyer. Is There Any Other Agency That Can Help Someone Like Me? Any Help Or Advice Would Be Appreciated.
I was divorced a few years ago. My ex-wife used legal aid while I hired a lawyer at $200/hr. She was represented by a couple different kids straight out of law school (they changed in the middle of the divorce).
In the end, she paid no attorney's fees while I paid over $10,000 to my attorney, plus the courts charged me a little for her attorney. But, she got no money from our home, no part of any of my retirment or savings accounts. I also pay a fair amount for child support, but pretty minimal compared to some of my friends that didn't find a good attorney. I don't get as much time with my kids as I would like, but quite a bit more than my ex wanted me to have and more than any of my divorced friends. Towards the end of the divorce proceedings I agreed to a couple of things I think I could have won, but at that point I was feeling bad for my ex.
(Now for those of you that are feeling bad for my ex-wife, please know that she cheated on me (I never strayed), left me for her new boyfriend, and initiated the divorce. I also still buy my son school clothes, bicycles, sports equipment and pay his school activity fees)
Here's my point. If there is ANY way on this planet you can get a decent attorney, get one. They are worth their weight in gold if the stakes are high enough. I would suggest finding a female family practice attorney that might sympathize with you, scraping together a small retainer ($500?) and offering a payment plan if that's all you can manage. Look for an attorney that does some guardianship and child work for the county (they'll be familiar with the local judiciary and might be sympathetic to your cause).
Question For Lawyers Who Practice Civil Law?
What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Profession, And What Do You Like Least About Your Profession?
Least? Lack of job security - there are no available jobs in this field.
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Is My Personal Injury Award Public Record?
How Can I Find Out If My Personal Injury Settlement Is Public Record, Where Anyone Can Find Out About It, Or If It Is Confidential And Permanently Sealed? I Certainly Hope It Is Sealed Because These Days It Seems Like Everybody Knows Everything About Every Person, And These Things Should Not Be Public Knowledge.
There are EXACTLY 3 possibilities.
1. You settled out of court and the settlement contains a confidentiality agreement.
2. The judge ordered the record sealed. You would know if they did.
3. The award is public record.
