4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a lawyer at all, you have to work closely together as a way to win your case. Irrespective of how competent these are, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - especially information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must help them to win. 3. Show 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, by being punctually, whenever. In fact, because you may need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Whats A Felony?
Do You Go To Jail For That. How About A Drug Felony
Traditionally a felony is a more serious crime, a misdemeanor is a less serious offence. In MOST states Felonies are crimes that carry a punishment of more than 1 year, misdemeanors are one year or less, probation may be substituted for all or part of the prison sentence except for the most serious felonies. This is not followed by all states, some have misdemeanors that carry 10 year prison sentences (South Carolina) and there felonies are what the state legislature says are felonies and everything else is a misdemeanor!
Is Being My Own Lawyer Good For Me In A Slip And Fall Case?
Be your own lawyer only if you know more about law and court room procedure than the Lawyer representing the other side. If you don't know as much as the Lawyer for the other side, you will loose, and most likely have to pay for the other sides lawyer fees and court cost.
What Should I Major In If I Want To Be A Real Estate Lawyer?
I Want To Attend A College In The Northeast. Please Give Me The Name Of The College(S) That Have The Major You Mention.
Anything you want...really. Just make good grades and you will get into one law school or another. Property is a standard first year law school course and then you'll find some relevant electives. I don't know of any law schools that get really excited about real estate law (meaning there aren't clinics and special opportunities.) Just spend your summers working in a law office that does real estate and that's about it. Good money, boring work in a mill-like environment. Closing after closing.
Inheriting A Property? Question For A Lawyer?
My Aunt Died Recently And Had Already Paid Off Her House. In Her Will She Named The Executor Of Her Property To Be A Friend Of Hers And 25% Of The Property When It Sells Was Suppose To Have Went To My Father (My Aunt'S Brother) Or Me And My Sister In The Event My Father Passed Away. Well My Father Passed Away About A Year Ago And The House Is Still On The Market For Sell. When My Aunt Died She Didn'T Have Insurance So My Mom Had To Pay For Her Final Expenses Because My Aunt'S Friend Didn'T Have The Money. The House Has Been On The Market For 5 Years Now But My Aunt'S Friend Is Selling The House Too High And Is Getting No Offers. Is There A Limit To How Long They Can Sell The House For Before It Has To Be Auctioned Or Something Since Money Is Owed To Me, My Sister And My Mom? My Mom Is Still Owed Money For My Aunt'S Final Expenses But He (The Executor) Has Only Come Off The Price 3 Times In The Past 5 Years. It'S Like It'S Never Going To Sell. Do I Need To Get With A Lawyer On This?
you said your aunt died "recently" but her house has been on the market for 5 years? if the estate has been open 5 years that seems like too long. You could get a lawyer to try to have the executor removed or to compel him to wrap things up more promptly, but a lawyer is going to charge you a ton of money which would cut significantly into the amount you are supposed to inherit.
As A Pre Law Student, Is It Better To Work For An Law Firm (Llp) Or A Large Corporations Legal Department?
I Am A College Senior Trying To Break Into The Legal Industry. I Want To Go To Law School Soon, And I Don'T Want To Start Off As An Entry Level Attorney With No Experience Giving Employers Another Excuse To Under-Pay Me, So I Figured I Would Utilize My Time In College To Rack Up As Much Experience Points As Possible Either Full Time Or Part Time. Therefore When I Am Ready To Join A Firm I Will Be Well Prepared, And Respected Enough To Be Offered A Decent Salary.
Any Advice Or Experience Sharing Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
The best thing to do is look at people who have your ideal job, then work backwards and see what they did.
It is very unlikely that any experience you gain in college is going to matter to a law firm hiring you after law school. Better that you focus on your grades and maybe one really good volunteering experience that you dedicate four years to - like working at legal aid - so that you can get into a good law school. Once you're in law school, it does matter what school you go to but top 10% is 10% even if you didn't go to Harvard. While you're in law school, get on the law review, do mock trial and make sure that you get an internship in the summer at a law firm (you won't go in-house that's not going to happen). Once you graduate - again, if you're grades are good, the place where you interned should hire you and if not you'll still be able to get a good job.
Most lawyers earn around 80K out of law school (not talking criminal or government lawyers who earn less). You stick with a firm for a few years and your salary will be 150K in no time and then (and only then) will a company look at you for in-house work. You won't get an in-house job out of law school. Sorry. Companies usually hire from the firms that they use for their legal work, once they have worked with a lawyer for a few years, they ask them to come in-house.
Hope that helps. Oh and your loans are with you for the rest of your life, get used to it, unless you go to work for Microsoft or some other place that will pay you ridiculous amounts, you're still looking at (at least!) 10 years of payback.
Child Visitation Appeal?
Would You Appeal A Visitation Case If The Judge Granted That You Cannot Have Standard Visitation, They Are Just Giving Every Other Weekend (No Holidays, Summers)? The Reasoning Behind It Was Because Of A Poor Job History And One Felony Arrest (Burglary) At The Age Of 16. The Father Is Now 23, Steady Job, Married, Has Another Child That He Has Standard Visitation With And A Step Child. Do You See Any Reason Here Not To Grant Standard Visitation?
"Child Visitation Appeal? Would you appeal a visitation case if the judge granted that you cannot have standard visitation, they are just giving every other weekend (no holidays, summers)? The reasoning behind it was because of a poor job history and one felony arrest (burglary) at the age of 16. The father is now 23, steady job, married, has another child that he has standard visitation with and a step child. Do you see any reason here not to grant standard visitation?"
There is no quick answer to your question.
There's no such thing as "standard visitation." The courts decide an appropriate visitation schedule based on a number of factors: including the desires of the child (especially older children), the geographic circumstances particular to the case, the relationship between the children and the parent, the parental fitness of a person to conduct certain visitation, etc. A father seeking more visitation would have to successfully argue that the increased visitation he proposes is in the best interests of the children.
And then, it wouldn't be an "appeal." Generally, the only appealable actions are those that are finally and conclusively adjudicated and ordered as such. Child custody and visitation issues can usually be revisited after either a certain period of time since the last order (say, two years) or upon a showing of a substantial change of circumstances or at any time if there is imminent endangerment to the health and well-being of the children.
The father should ask the custodial parent for the visitation schedule he now desires. If the parties agree, then they should go into court and have the judge order the visitation schedule that has been agreed to.
If the parties don't agree-- as they often don't-- then the father needs to make a motion to modify the judgment of dissolution of marriage (or divorce or whatever it's called in that jurisdiction) to change the visitation. It's not an appeal. It's just a request that the court change the existing order due to the passage of time and a change of circumstances.
If the other party opposes the motion, then testimony and evidence will have to be taken to allow the judge to decide what is in the best interests of the children.
