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.

Elite Law Firms-Criminal Defense, Personal Injury?
Are There Any Elite/Prestigious Personal Injury, Or Criminal Defense Law Firms? How About Civil Litigation [Like, Suing People For, I Don'T Know...Malpractice? Someone Dies In A Factory Explosion?] I'M More Concerned About The First Two Though, Especially Criminal Litigation...Any Firms In New York? California? Canada? Please Make Sure That They Aren'T Mediocre Firms And Are Prestigious [And High Paying]. I'M Just Curious, So Please Don'T Make Spiteful Remarks Like 'Oh, You Only Care About Prestige?' Thanks In Advance. Especially Criminal Defense And Personal Injury [No Corporate Law, Mergers And Acquisitions, Banking, Tax!]
Elite law firms don't do personal injury unless it's a class action - doesn't pay nearly well enough to make it worth their while. Pretty much all of them do white collar criminal defense but no other kinds, again because they don't pay, though the big appellate firms may pick things up on the appeals level. Elite firms go where the money is, which is overwhelmingly corporate law. Many of the top firms have excellent pro bono programs that may pick up the odd criminal case but it's not a real practice area for them.
All this information is easily available on any one of the dozen or so law firm rankings lists and search engines. I won't type out the AmLaw 100 for you.
Personal Injury Compensation Claim - How Do Insurance Companies Calculate The Claim Amount?
Personal injury claims are calculated by adding up the obvious & the incidental:
1. Medical treatment & rehab costs
2. Loss of income during injury rehab
3. Physical & mental distress caused by the injury itself
Insurance companies calculate the final compensation payable to you based on the severity of your injury.
For a simple injury, the compensation is (1.5 x damages cost) + total loss of income resulting from the injury
If the injury is severe, the compensation is (5 x damages cost) + loss of income
Wrongful Death To Trial?
9 Years Ago, Someone I Know Died And His Cause Of Death Went From &Quot;Unknown&Quot; To &Quot;Asthma Attack&Quot;. We Believe He Was Poisoned. The Person Who We Believe Did It Is Locked Up( For Other Reason) And Has Been Since A Couple Of Months After His Death. We Have Strong Evidence To Believe That Said Person Committed Said Crime. Where Do I Start And Who Do I Contact?
Actually there is not enough information for me. But to answer your direct question....Start with the prosecuting attorneys office in the county or region where the death was ruled. IF you have evidence (best evidence would be an independant toxicology report showing abnormal levels of a foriegn substance) and not hearsay (he said, she said) then present it to the DA and let them follow up on it. ONLY the District Attorneys office can reopen a case. Secondly, go to the police who investigated the death and present the same. They can determine if the evidence in the case was not conclusive in the investigation and they can recommend the case be reopened.
If the death was marked as "unknown" then an autopsy should have been done. The toxicoclgy screen would have turned up something abnormal unless a it is a compound used by the body itself (insulin is absorbed after large amounts are injectecd-if not detected in time it is untracable.)

What Do You Say In Adoption/Family Court...?
When The Wife Proves I Ain'T The Biological Father Cause She Like Cheated On Me? And Now The Biological Father Wants To Parent His 3 Month Old Baby Girl And His 2 Year Old Son. But Like Ain'T I The Father Cause I Am Like On The Birth Certifacte And We Are Like Married. Seraperated But Married.
It depends on what you want and what state you live in. (I think you said Texas in your last question.)
If you wish to not be responsible for the children you can give up your parental rights, but if you wish to remain in the children's lives you can fight for the right to remain their father. Most states consider a man who is married to a mother at the time of birth a legal father. (Having your name on the birth certificate is a big plus.) You will need to show the Court that you have supported these children and acted in the capacity of a father to these children and that you intend to continue to do so and that this is in THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILDREN. Know your rights and speak from your heart.
Good luck to you and especially the children!
Texas Legal Definition of a Father:
Legal Definition of “Father”
Texas Family Code §§ 160.102; 160.204
‘’Adjudicated father’’ means a man who has been adjudicated by a court to be the father of a child.
‘’Presumed father’’ means a man who, by operation of law under § 160.204, is recognized as the father of a child
until that status is rebutted or confirmed in a judicial proceeding.
A man is presumed to be the father of a child if:
He is married to the mother of the child and the child is born during the marriage.
He is married to the child’s mother and the child is born before the 301st day after the date the marriage is terminated.
He married the child’s mother before the birth of the child even if the attempted marriage is or could be declared invalid, and the child is born during the invalid marriage or before the 301st day after the date the marriage is terminated.
He married the child’s mother after the birth of the child, regardless of whether the marriage is or could be declared invalid, he voluntarily asserted his paternity of the child, and: » The assertion is in a record filed with the Bureau of Vital Statistics. » He is voluntarily named as the child’s father on the child’s birth certificate. » He promised in a record to support the child as his own.
During the first 2 years of the child’s life, he continuously resided in the household in which the child resided and he represented to others that the child was his own.
Revocation of Claim to Paternity:
Texas Family Code §§ 160.414; 160.307; 160.308; 160.414
A signatory may rescind an acknowledgment of paternity by commencing a proceeding to rescind before the earlier of:
60 days after the effective date of the acknowledgment
The date of the first hearing in a proceeding to which the signatory is a party before a court to adjudicate an
issue relating to the child, including a proceeding that establishes child support After the period for rescission has expired, a signatory of an acknowledgment of paternity may commence a proceeding to challenge the acknowledgment only on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact. The proceeding must be commenced before the fourth anniversary of the date the acknowledgment is filed. A party challenging an acknowledgment of paternity or denial of paternity has the burden of proof.
A registrant [in the putative fathers’ registry] may rescind his registration at any time by sending to the registry a rescission in a record or another manner authenticated by him and witnessed or notarized.
