4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal representative at all, you must work closely with them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent these are, 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 - irrespective of what information you're going to reveal in their mind. Privilege means everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, every time. In reality, because you may have to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important so as to prove to the court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Is It Fun Being A Defense Attorney?
I Took A Couple Of Law Classes In College, And I Also Took Debate Classes And I Found Those Classes To Be Fun And Interesting. I Think I Want To Become A Lawyer, And I Know That Lawyers Have To Do Paperwork And Research, And From What I Know About It Seems Fun And Exciting To Me But Is It Really As Exciting As I Think.
There are basically two kinds of attorneys: those who do mostly research and writing and those who spend most of their time negotiating and in the courtroom. Defense attorneys and prosecutors are typically the latter. Young associates at big firms and judicial clerks typically do the former. If you can deal with defending serious pieces of human garbage, being a defense attorney is fun as hell. It's also fun to be a prosecutor. Being a prosecutor or defense attorney is actually one of the easier type of lawyer jobs to get too, mostly because it doesn't pay as much as a private civil attorney would get. Still, all the lawyers I know that do criminal work love it (I've known many).
If you really think you'd like the work, I say go for it. However, keep in mind that it is hard, incredibly stressful work. And you will have to research and write, too. Law school is expensive and brutal. Around one quarter of the students drop out, depending on the school. As a criminal lawyer, you probably won't start at much more than $40-60K per year, depending on where you live. That may not sound bad, but consider that you'll have seven years of college to pay for, which often means hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, and you could be starting at around $60-150K in the private sector depending on your where you live and the size of your firm.

Do You Think This Could Be A Possible Lawsuit?
I Work At A Mall, I Was Loading Some Merchandise For My Company And Had To Go Throught The Loading Zone Of The Mall. There Is Some Construction Going On, There Are A Bunch Of Old Doors And Metal Parts Laying Around With No Signs Of &Quot;Contruction&Quot;, Or &Quot;Caution&Quot; Signs What So Ever. There Was A Huge Pice Of Metal Right By The Doorway Where It Obviously Should Not Have Been. While Walking By My Arm Was Cut On A Very Rusty Piece Of Metal. About A 10Cm Gash, I Was Bleeding Non Stop For About 2 Hours. I Didnt Want It To Get Infected So I Went To A Near-By Hospital To Get A Tetnanus Shot And Get It Cleaned Up. It Did Not Require Stiches However It Hurts And I Feel It Was Very Inconvieniant For Me To Go Through This. Now I Have A Big Bandage Going Around My Arm.
Why? Were you blind when walking through there? Did you not see this stuff? Would a sign saying "construction zone" have alerted you more to the fact that stuff was lying around? Does it take a "caution" sign for you to pay attention to your surroundings?
Wouldn't a little common sense have been more in order?
So you cut your arm and a HUGE piece of metal because there wasn't a "caution" sign posted on it. Like you couldn't see a HUGE piece of metal was there without a caution sign.
And are you not cautious around this type of thing without being told by a sign to be cautious?
So what you should have done was notify your manager/supervisor that you had an injury. They have procedures for such things. Such as seeing you got first aid or medical care.
But no - you continued to bleed for 2 hours and took yourself off to the hospital. So now you have no proof that you were injured at work because you didn't report it.
And by the way - I doubt it was a "gash" if there were no stitches involved.
So, what kind of lawsuit do you have in mind? I've never heard of one being filed for inconvenience.
Yes, I believe a cut on the arm will hurt for a day or two. However, doesn't prevent you from being on the computer - does it?
So, no, I don't think you have a legitimate lawsuit. You didn't report it when it happened. You waited 2 hours and dealt with it on your own. So you can't even prove that it happened at work. You didn't give your employer an opportunity to help you. There weren't even any stitches so you aren't even injured that badly.
Be sure you put "caution" signs around your house so people will not walk blindly into the walls.
How Many People Die From Drunk Driving Every Year?
Drunk driving is no accident.
There were 16,885 alcohol-related fatalities in 2005 – 39 percent of the total traffic fatalities for the year.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), "A motor vehicle crash is considered to be alcohol-related if at least one driver or non-occupant (such as a pedestrian or pedalcyclist) involved in the crash is determined to have had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .01 gram per deciliter (g/dL) or higher. Thus, any fatality that occurs in an alcohol-related crash is considered an alcohol-related fatality. The term 'alcohol-related' does not indicate that a crash or fatality was caused by the presence of alcohol."
Note the last paragraph, and in particular, the last sentence. This would seem to make the statistics below a little misleading since we tend to think that alcohol-related crashes are caused by drunk drivers. But if a sober driver kills an alcohol-impaired pedestrian, it's still considered an alcohol-related crash. Does this invalidate the drunk driving statistics below? No. The statistics reveal that most fatal alcohol-related crashes do indeed involve drunk drivers and far fewer of these fatalities involve intoxicated pedestrians or "bicyclists and other cyclists".
Nationwide in 2005, alcohol was present in 24 percent of the drivers involved in fatal crashes (BAC .01-.07, 4 percent; BAC .08 or greater, 20 percent).
The 16,885 alcohol-related fatalities in 2005 (39% of total traffic fatalities for the year) represent a 5-percent reduction from the 17,732 alcohol related fatalities reported in 1995 (42% of the total).
The 16,885 fatalities in alcohol-related crashes during 2005 represent an average
of one alcohol-related fatality every 31 minutes.
Of the 16,885 people who died in alcohol-related crashes in 2005, 14,539 (86%) were killed in crashes where at least one driver or nonoccupant had a BAC of .08 or higher.
The drunk driving statistics show that raffic fatalities in alcohol-related crashes fell by 0.2 percent, from 16,919 in 2004 to 16,885 in 2005. [Note that this figure for 2004 is higher than what we've shown for 2004 (16,694 deaths) because our data came from preliminary reports. The final government report counted more drunk driving deaths.]
NHTSA estimates that alcohol was involved in 39 percent of fatal crashes and in
7 percent of all crashes in 2005. The national rate of alcohol-related fatalities in
motor vehicle crashes in 2005 was 0.57 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled.
An estimated 254,000 persons were injured in crashes where police reported that alcohol was present — an average of one person injured approximately every 2 minutes.
In 2004, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program
estimated that over 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. This is an arrest rate of 1 for every 139 licensed
drivers in the United States. (2005 data not yet available.)
In 2005, 21 percent of the children age 14 and younger who were killed in motor
vehicle crashes were killed in alcohol-related crashes.
In 2005, a total of 414 (21%) of the fatalities among children age 14 and younger
occurred in crashes involving alcohol. Of those 414 fatalities, more than half (224)
of those killed were passengers in vehicles with drivers with BAC levels of .01 or higher.
Another 48 children age 14 and younger who were killed in traffic crashes in 2005
were pedestrians or pedalcyclists who were struck by drivers with BAC .01 or higher.
The rate of alcohol involvement in fatal crashes is more than 3 times higher
at night as during the day. For all crashes, the alcohol involvement rate is 5 times higher at night.
The highest percentage of drivers in fatal crashes who had BAC levels of .08 or
higher was for drivers ages 21 to 24 followed by the 25 to 34 age group.

I Have A Question About Child Support Through The Attorney General?!?
Ok, So I Filed A Case Against My Childs Father For Child Support Through The Attorney General In Texas. We Have A Court Date Set In September. Well, Out Of No Where...He Called Me And Told Me He Wanted To Send Me Some Money To Help Out. But He Wants Me To Send His Payroll Check And Endorse It To Me On The Back So I Can Cash It. I Thought It Was A Good Thing Because I Can Make A Copy Of It So When We Go To Court I Can Show That He Works And How Much He Earns Per Week. Well My Question Is, Is This A Trick Hes Trying To Pull? Like Will The Judge Dismiss My Case Because Hes Already Giving Me Money? Or Is He Trying To Pull Somthing Over Me? Im Worried...Can Anyone Give Me Advice On What I Should Do?
lol, no. dont worry. he still has to pay support even though theres no order. he will just just be that much less in arrears. Even if he gives you support going to get a court order saves you the worry that all of a sudden hes not just going to stop paying. Then you have to get the order again. Take the support, dont worry, go to court. its not a trick.
He would however have to endorse the check himself. youonly sign your name after he signs his name on the back. Ask him to just send a money order.
