4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To If you want a legal representative at all, you should work closely along with them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Listed here are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they need to assist them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, every time. In fact, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

How Do I Find A Lawyer In My Area That Won'T Charge Me My First Born?
A Lawyer For Medical Malpractice
Your #1 concern is to make sure the medical bills get paid.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Medical Malpractice matters. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account? (Usually personal injury matters are paid AT THE END, on a "contingency" (percentage) basis.)
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
And be patient - medical malpractice cases can take 1 - 2 years or longer, sometimes.
Don't sign ANYTHING until you have consulted with an Attorney FIRST!!!
My guess is about 10% of medical malpractice matters end up in Court. BUT, when you go to a law office for a case, the attorney will immediately start preparing the matter as if it IS going to go to Court. Because they don't know for sure. So they start preparing the documents, etc. as though the case will go to Court.
This is very similar to a chess game - but this "game" is played out by the two sides involved in the matter. I have seen MANY medical malpractice cases get settled the day before the matter was scheduled for Court It is usually resolved by the attorneys playing out their chess moves.
I assure you, if I was injured in a medical malpractice matter, I would get an attorney to settle my case. But, then, I have worked with attorneys that do Medical Malpractice matters - and I know how hard they work.
One thing I want to make you aware of: When someone has been involved in a medical malpratice matter, a "clock" starts ticking. If you wait too long, nothing will be able to be done for you. My suggestion is to call a lawyer asap.
DON'T SIGN ANYTHING without consulting with an attorney first! Those insurance companies will try to trick you - beware.
Sometimes, medical malpractice matters DO take years to resolve. Ask your attorney how long it will take.
Good luck to you.

Who Are America's Top Lawyer?
Who Are America's Top Lawyer
Me. Oh yeah...
In reality, judges are lawyers too, so one could say the 9 people at the top of the US Supreme Court. Or you could say the lawyers that teach law in the prestigious schools.
It depends on your definition of "top". There are a lot of damn good lawyers.
What Is The Actual Fallacy In This Common Argument About Domestic Violence?
Not All Perpetrators Of Domestic Violence Are Men, Many Are Women.
Lots Of Women Are Prompted By Their Lawyers To Appeal To &Quot;Men Are Bad; Med Are Wife Beaters&Quot; In Order To Make A Case.
Therefore, Those Women Are Probably Lying. Not All Men Are Bad.
(I Have Seen This Argument Here On Ya)
I would say this:
"Lots of women are [prompted by their lawyers] to appeal to "men are bad; med are wife beaters" in order to make a case.
Therefore, those [women are probably lying.]"
This argument, to me, is stating that all women who come into the court room with a domestic violence case can not be trusted because they are "being coached" by their lawyers. So the only way to fight this "probability" is to assume all women are liars. This idea, of course stems back all the way through history, thanks to the bible, reinforcing ideas that women are lying, evil creatures, and if enforced, might cause actual criminals to get away with the crime, just because it's his word agents hers, and his word is considered to be worth two of hers.
The sections in the  is what I assume the obvious folly is in this statement.
Seeking A New Attorney, But Highly Recommended Attorney Is In The Same Firm/Office.?
I Have An Attorney Who I Think Is Pretty Complacent And Not Representing Us As Strong Or As Aggressive As I Believe She Should. I Have Heard From A Judge Who Is A Friend Of The Family That Another Attorney Does Real Well In The Court Room. The Down Side Is The New Attorney Is In The Same Office/Firm As The First One... Is It Ethical And Acceptable For Me To Switch Attorneys To One In The Same Firm/Office.
Have you discussed this with your attorney? Your current attorney cannot meet your needs if you fail to communicate with him/her. Before heading down that path, you should at the very least schedule a meeting with the attorney and express your concerns. I can tell you from experience that it is not advisable to change counsel in the middle of litigation. Things get sloppy, even within the same firm. If after you express your concerns and see no improvement, you will still need to speak with your attorney about transferring the case. Some firms have a no-transfer policy and fire you as a client on the spot. Our firm allows this, but I know of firms that do not. They take it as an insult. Yes, there are pompous firms out there LOL.
As a paralegal, I advocate attorney communication. Tell him/her your needs, your concerns and give the attorney a chance to work for you. They can't do that if you just decide one day to fire them. If it doesn't work out, I would recommend speaking to both attorneys regarding the transfer of the file. It happens in our firm because each attorney does specialize in something different. I'm just saying don't get your heart set on it. Not all firms allow it and this new attorney may have too large a case load.
**CAVEAT** I have 1-2 users that intentionally troll my answers to do nothing but automatically rate my answers with a thumbs down regardless of how accurate my answer is. My answer is NOT LEGAL advice and contains information easily found through Internet research. The unauthorized practice of law is defined as giving legal advice and/or representation TO CLIENTS. My answer in no way forms a client relationship. I am not an attorney.
Paralegals are not licensed to practice in any state, nor are paralegals regulated by any legal body. Registration is voluntary in a few states. Please do your research and know more about the paralegal profession before accusing anyone of committing UPL or ignorantly stating that a paralegal license (which no US paralegal has because it does not exist) or education can be revoked.
Living In Southern California And Need A Divorce Lawyer But Cant Afford One?
Ok This Is For A Friend But Not Me.
She Is Attempting To File For Divorce But The Paperwork Is To Confusing And She Also Cannot Find Her Now Ex. She Cant Afford To Pay For Her Legal Services Her Self, And She Has Also Attempted To Go To The Local Self Help Center At Our Court House But They Dont Do Much Else Then Give Her The Paperwork And Tell Her To Refill It Out. What Other Resources Does She Have? She Is Located In La County.
Have your friend call up local lawyers and explain her problem and ask them what it would cost to just have them do the bare minimum and just tell her what she needs to know.In fact show up and ask in person ..they could be sitting there bored..and knowing they are not going to make a fortune doing nothing might just take the five or ten Min's to help her. Normally an attorney would charge by the hour, for advice or instructions , but that is also in an ongoing relationship. I think she could find one that was willing to just charge her a small fee to file papers for her. The reason I say that is that is exactly what I did...and I found a lawyer who did it for me or i should say told me what to do ... by the way...he only charged me 76 dollars..I too was in L.A. co...my ex was also missing ..so a fee for an ad in the newspaper will be needed ..not much!!..and I guess that is very nice of a person.
Hope you can be as lucky!!!
ps. if your friend cannot even afford less than a hundred dollars for a serious thing like divorce ..she has much bigger things to worry about than a divorce.This is not a put down in any way just comon sense. I wish her the best!!
