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.

Since your are (I presume) legally married to a US citizen and both your children were born in the US, then I suspect you have a lot more Rights than you realize. If you can, talk with an attorney.
Edit: As poohcat said, there are free alternatives in many areas. Family Services, free legal advice to aliens (legal and otherwise) etc. Start walking your fingers through the Yellow and White Pages. You seem to have an excellent handle on English and that is going to help you immensely.
What'S The Average Time Frame For Attorneys To Settle With Insurance Companies?
Not Quite 4 Months Ago, I Hired An Attorney Because I Had Been Rear-Ended And The Repair Estimate Was Close To $7,000. For Therapy And Diagnosis/Prognosis, I Had Maybe 6 Doctor/Chiropractor Visits Over The Course Of The Next Month. Now, I'M Waiting To Hear Whether The Insurance Company Will Accept Our Demand.
Anyway, That'S The Background Information About The Accident And Hiring A Lawyer. How Long Do Physical Injury Accident Cases Take To Settle?
I take it by your note that you've finished treatment. If so, then the insurance company will evaluate your claim to determine how much to pay you.
You said you're waiting to hear whether they'll accept the demand...so has your attorney presented them with a demand? If so, it should be resolved rather soon. They'll need to review your medical records from the treatment you received, which your attorney should have provided them. If it was only 6 chiro visits over the course of a month, that's pretty easy to evaluate.
From the time he sent the demand, the insurance company should reply no later than a month with an offer, if not sooner. I would keep in touch with your attorney as to how much longer it will take.
As A Rape Victim, What Sort Of Lawyer Should I Seek For Legal Advice?
All I Can Find Is &Quot;Assault And Battery&Quot; And &Quot;Sexual Harassment&Quot; As Far As Attorneys Go.
I'M Looking For Some Advice And Some Answers To Questions I Have About My Case Such As,
-If This Goes To Court, How Will My Case Hold Up?
-With The Information I Have, How Likely Is It That He Will Be Prosecuted?
-What Is The Legal System Like, And What Would Court Be Like?
I Really Want This To Go To Court, And I Really Want Him To Be Prosecuted Because I Am Not The Only Victim.
By The Way, I Live In Oregon.
Contact a local sexual assault/rape/women's crisis center in your area and ask for a referral to an attorney who can answer your questions. If there is a law school nearby you might want to contact them. They sometimes offer law clinics often at low or no cost to people having legal questions on a range of questions including yours.
You want the case to go to court. Some prosecutors offices have victim advocates. You may want to contact the DA's office and inquire about it. The sexual assault/rape/women's crisis center I mentioned earlier may be able to provide advocacy services for you
A couple of things about going to court in a criminal manner. Understand the decision to do so is not yours. As a victim you are not a party you do not having in a criminal matter. The case is between the state and the alleged offender. The police determine if they have probable cause to make an arrest. The prosecutors office perhaps with the involvement of a grand jury determines if enough evidence exists to bring an indictment against the alleged offender; and then whether they believe there is sufficient evidence to win a conviction and thus justify going to trial.
Let me say in advance of any trial or verdict if the state fails to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt as is required in a criminal prosecution it does not mean you were not raped. It is not a complete exoneration for the perpetrator although the media and his entourage will see it that way. A not guilty verdict in the American system is not a finding of innocence. Trial courts in the US do not make determinations of innocence only of guilt. What a not guilty finding means is that the state didn't prove to level of proof required by law. It does not mean the incident (the rape) didn't occur
Even after a not guilty in a criminal trial you can still a civil action against the rapist and generally if a preponderance of the evidence is in your favor you will win. A preponderance means who have a majority of the evidence in your favor. Or your evidence weighs at least an iota or a scintilla more than his. Now a few states may require clear and convincing evidence in some civil actions. It's a more stringent test than the preponderance one but not nearly as strict as the beyond the reasonable doubt one of criminal prosecutions.
good luck and also if you need any help dealing with emotional trauma from the effects of the rape or anything related to it ask for referrals for social workers or other appropriate resoures from the rape/sexual assault center

Question On Legal Cases... Who Is The Law Firm Representing?
Hi, No Knowledge Here Of Legal Info. Really A Simple Question. I Have An Article From The Daily Deal And I Have To Figure Out Weil, Gotshal And Manges Is The Debtor Counsel For Who... Aleris International?
Daily Deal, Pe Backed Aleris Rolls Into Ch 11
A Steep Drop In Demand For Its Products And Liquidity Constraints Have Flattened Aleris International Inc., Which On Thursday, Feb. 12, Became The Largest Private Equity-Owned Company This Year To Tumble Into Bankruptcy.

&Quot;We Have Moved Aggressively To Reduce Our Costs And Eliminate Capacity To Offset The Negative Effects Of The Global Economic Slowdown,&Quot; Said Aleris Chairman And Ceo Steven J. Demetriou In A Statement. &Quot;However, Given The Unpredictability Of The Speed And Severity Of The Downturn Over The Last Few Months, These Actions Were Not Sufficient To Counter The Combination Of Challenges Aleris Faces, Including A Sharp Deterioration In Demand For Our Products By The Automotive, Housing, And General Industrial Products Sectors And An Unprecedented Decline In Aluminum Prices Which Limited Our Borrowing Ability.&Quot;
Aleris Will Fund Its Operations During The Bankruptcy With A Dip That Includes A $500 Million Term Loan Led By Prepetition Lender Deutsche Bank Ag And Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.

Stephen Karotkin Of Weil, Gotshal & Manges Llp Is Debtor Counsel. Paul Heath Of Richards, Layton & Finger Pa Is Debtor Co-Counsel. Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson Llp Is Special Financing, Corporate, Tax And Litigation Counsel.
You are correct. The "debtor" is the company that filed for bankruptcy, in this case Aleris International Inc. "Debtor counsel" is the law firm that represents the debtor in the Bankruptcy Court.
If Your Pastor Or Priest Were Running A Drug/Numbers Operation Would You Notify The Elders Or Law Enforcement?
For Example If You Thought Your Pastor Or Clergy Was Involved With A Drugs Or Numbers Racket Would Or Should One First Go To The Church Elders Or To The Proper Authorities In Law Enforcement? Or Would You Just Leave Well Enough Alone And Say Nothing?
If I only thought he was, I would notify the elders. If I knew he was, I would notify both the elders and the police.
