4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you need a legal representative at all, you need to work closely along with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - particularly information other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must 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, when you are punctually, each and every time. In reality, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in just about any crime, it's important in order to prove to the court that you just both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

What Area Of Law Should I Go Into?
I'M Working On My Associates In Paralegal Studies(An Accredited School), And I'M Wondering Which Area Of Law I Should Go Into. I'M Thinking About Litigation But I Haven'T Taken Any Other Areas Of Law, So I'M Not Sure Yet.
Any Info From A Paralegal Working In That Field Will Be Great. And Bonus If You Can Give Me Info On Other Areas Of The Law.
Please Actual Answers And Please Answer Based On Your Experience In That Field.
Just Want Some Info On The Different Areas Of Law And What A Paralegal Actually Does.
I'm a commercial construction litigation paralegal in Texas. I handle basic civil litigation, mass multi-party construction litigation, basic collection suits, and administrative claims.
No matter what area of law you enter, you will typically be responsible for knowing your state's civil procedure, filing procedures, filing deadlines, and other administrative tasks. Each paralegal's tasks vary. Some attorneys refuse to let you help and some expect you to draft, edit and do everything except sign the pleading. What you will do will really depend on where you work. Each attorney has different ideas of what a paralegal is and what they do.
I love being a litigation paralegal, but what I do is really unique. Very few of us do construction law. It is a whole different beast. The only other thing I can say is do what you like and be honest with yourself. Choose an area of law that interests you, because it can get boring.
Insurance With A Dwi?
I Recently Got A Dwi, Before Anyone Jumps Down My Throat I Know How Wrong It Is. It Is Truly The Biggest Mistake I Have Ever Made And One That Will Follow Me Forever Probably. That Being Said I Know My Insurance Will Increase For Three Years Following A Dwi. If My Driving Record Is Clean For Those Three Years Will My Insurance Lower At All Or No?
Your insurance will go down after 3 years (well the renewal AFTER your DWI becomes 39 months old). I believe Progressive now writes auto insurance in NJ & with a DWI the only choices you really have are the assigned risk or Progressive. They tend to have lower surcharges for tickets (especially the more serious ones) than other companies. So, it is worth getting a quote with them. They work with Independent agents (also directly online & on the phone) so look in the phone book & find someone close that represents them. They do have pretty high standards for their agents (I know of an agent that they cancelled - the agent is no longer in business).
Sorry, NJ does not expunge your record. I see that they have increased the suspension - used to be 6 months suspension & $1,000 per year for 3 yrs fines to the State to keep your license once you get it back.
Some insurance companies look back 5 years for serious offenses, but can't surcharge for more than 3.
You don't have to worry about an SR22 in NJ, there is no such thing there.
Todd Bertuzzi'S Lawsuit?
I Have Supported This Man 100% Since The 'Incident' But That Is Not The Point.
Can Someone Explain To Me Why The Hell Moore Thinks He Has A Right To Sue The Guy For $38,000,000? If Moore Wins, Bert Can'T Pay Him That... What Happens To Bertuzzi If He Loses The Lawsuit? Jail Time?
Also I Heard Something About His House And A Dollar. Can Someone Tell Me What This Is All About? He Paid Something And Now He Gets To Keep His House? I Am So Confused.
Wasn'T Moore'S Injury Really Minor Or Something? I Am Still Confused On The Small Details.
Can Someone Fill Me In On Some Gaps, Please.
I'M Interested In Seeing How This Goes Down.
No Negative Opinions, Just Answers.
The purpose of increasing the lawsuit for an exorbitant amount is to assess punitive (punishing) damages.
Note that this is a civil suit, and not criminal. The facts do not have to be beyond reasonable doubt. It will be decided by a jury based on the jury's opinions.
Worst case scenario, Bertuzzi loses, and appeals the amount, and will more than likely get it dropped.
The injury was significant as others have said. However, Moore has been able to skate. However due to concussion syndrome is not able to return to hockey. Hence the reason why most of it has not been as cut and dry.
Here's my read of the legal ramifications. Note that I am not a lawyer, just somewhat versed.
In all sports, we are responsible for the safety of others to the extent of what we can control. If you deliver a check to someone, that is generally fine. If he falls funny, and gets a concussion, well there is only so much you could do. In general most collisions are a part of the game / job. Heck, even fighting is unofficially recognized as part of the game.
The point of the lawsuit, is that Bertuzzi's actions went BEYOND the nature of the game.
He chased a guy around the rink for the better part of the game. That shows intent.
Now factor in that threats were made that Moore was a marked man. It could be interpreted that Bertuzzi was stalking. It could now be interpreted as malicious intent.
And finally factor in that Moore had his back or side to him when Bertuzzi hits him, knocking him to the ice. This can be seen as intent to do harm. Plus if Bertuzzi hadn't nailed him, he wouldn't have fallen to the ice and got his neck broken.
Bertuzzi showed malicious intent by stalking, was negligent in the safety for another, by blind siding Moore.
IMO, the criminal charges and results were fine. Even if Bertuzzi hadn't broken Moore's neck, the criminals charges were warranted.
Civil suits aren't as simple though. They only have to show that Bertuzzi was potentially responsible. (Remember OJ... lost without a single piece of proof)
Civil suits can factor in everything beyond facts, and can account for lost wages, long term suffering, the intangible / unaccountable / uncacluble things, etc.
Does anyone know the long term ramifications of extensive concussion syndromes? Look at football players who suffer from extensive concussions. They can barely walk much less function. Is this what Moore has to look forward too?
Bertuzzi's team can try to mitigate the long term concussions issue by showing that Moore suffered from prior concussions.
But that's just my legal expertise, and not the word of an attorney.
An Environmental Lawyer... Is This Really A Profession?
This Sounds To Me Like A Whole New Scam From The Liberal Slash Public Sector..Where Nimrods Can Carve Out Careers In The Name Of A Subjective Platitude And Do Nothing To Add To The Supply Of Goods And Services In Their Life.
They Take Studies From Like-Minded Public-Funded Eternal Students..Perpetuating Their Studies And Turn Them Into
Blackmail On The Business Community..
There Is A Segment Of People Who Feel They Can Create Their Own Purview..Add To That The Legions Of Political Appointed Judges Who Fuel This Mentality..All They Will Do Is Add To The Cost Of Everything..Be Passionate Or At Least Smug In Thinking They Are Smarter Than Everyone Else.
Absolute Scourge..Greenhouse Gasses..Co2..What Is Next Is Human Emmissions Will Be Sued..
These People Need Real Jobs..But They Have Mexicans To Work As Their Slaves When They Need The Services They Are Too Good To Produce.
Yes its a real profession. In fact it works like this. They file a law suit on behalf of a "group" that is "hurt" by the environment. The left wing waco body of government usually a city council or county organization "settles" out of court with big money so the environmental lawyer makes a nice living. Quite a nice scam.
Legal Advice Termination Of Contract?
Im On A 2 Yr Limited Visa Uae, If I Want To Resign And Do Not Complete My Contract, How Much Do I Need To Pay My Employer?
I Signed A Notarized Document Before In My Home Country (Not In Uae) Stating That If I Dont Finished My 2 Yr Contract I Will Need To Pay The Cost Of My Visa And My Employer Always Threatened Us That If We Do Not Finished Our Contract We Need To Pay 8000 Dhs. (Recruitment Cost)
I Was Confused Because I Called The Labour Dept And They Told Me That The Only Contract That Is Legal Is Our Labor Contract (The One We Signed At The Labor Office) Other Contracts Signed Outside Uae Is Not Legal, I Also Asked About The Employment Offer, They Told Me That Employment Offer Is Also A Non Binding Contract If It Is Not Included In The Labor Contract Signed At The Labor Office. I Also Ask Them About The Payment To My Employer They Said The Only Amount I Should Pay Is 45 Days Of My Salary For Not Finishing My Contract Duration. 45 Days Of My Salary Is Just Less Than 4000 Dhs.
I Need To Resigned Bec I Am Not Happy With The Company Anymore But I Do Not Want To Pay The 8000 Dhs, Bec I Dont Have Enough Money, I Can Pay The 45 Days Of My Salary Which Is Less Than 4000 Dhs. What Do I Need To Do If My Company Still Insist That I Need To Pay 8000 Dhs To Have My Visa Cancelled?
They Also Have My Passport And I Know They Will Give Me A Hard Time Returning It.
First, why does the employer have your passport ?
That passport is yours, not theirs, and they should have to return it to you.
You would have to contact the local police about this matter, or if you can, the embassy of your home country.
From what you wrote, the labor department of UAE has told you they cannot and will not enforce contracts signed in other countries, and so the company cannot use the UAE court system to enforce that contract. If the company wants you to pay 8000 dhs, the company will have to sue you in your home country, after you return to your home company.
Did you tell the labor office the company holds your passport and you cannot leave UAE unless the company returns your passport to you ? It might be illegal in UAE for the company to do this !
It sounds like the company you are working for is run by jerks who have so much trouble keeping employees that they use "contracts" to threaten economic hard to keep employees from leaving.
Difference Between Criminal Law Case And Private Law Case?
Criminal cases are ones where a person/persons are charged on the federal level (DUI, Larceny etc), whereas private cases aren't (a neighbor suing for damages to property or parents fighting for child custody).
