4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you really need an attorney for any excuse, you have to work closely together so that you can win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means everything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most especially information one other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, whenever. In reality, because you may want to discuss last minute details or even be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important so as to convince the legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Why Have The Trial Lawyers Not Defended Themselves Against The Political Lies Of Tort Reform?
Why else do you think trial lawyers are the largest capaign donors.
Trial lawyers gave 120 million in campaign contributions in the 2006 congressional elections alone.
Making them the largest donar indusrty group by far.
Compare that 120 million, to other industries that people think donate the most.
Oil indusrty - 20 million
Insurance industry - 30 million
Pharmacutical industry - 20 million
And those are the four largest political donars in the US.
So im not gonna cry for the lawyers.
They aren't donating that 120 million out of the goodness of thier hearts.
Legal Or Illegal Life Insurance Policy?
My Friend Says It Is Legal And Accepted To Be Able To Take Out A Life Insurance Policy On An Adult Without Their Knowledge Or Signature And I Say That It Is Not Allowed.
Your friend has been watching way too many murder movies. In holywood it maybe legal, but in the real world it wont happen. Take your friend through this logic:
Insurance companies are all in the busienss of making money, like any other business. Would it be smart to issue policies (obligations to pay) without knowing anything about who you are insuraning? Things like health checks, drivers licenses, social security numbers are all needed to verify that the person is a true person. Other wise someone could theoreticaly take out a life insurance on a non existant person, then claim this person died one day after the contestation period (two years), and be paid the face amount of the policy! That is not a good way for the insurance company to make money... maybe for the person buying the policy, but not the insurance company.
Oh and by the way, there are federal laws against buying insurance on someone without their consent. There are Third party owned life insurance policies... these are very dangerous and most often scams. This is were someone has had a life insurance policy, and "sells" the policy to someone they don't know. there is a transfer of ownership, where the premiums are picked up by the third party, and beneficiary becomes the new owner. There is a federal look back period of three years when it comes to estate taxes, so if the person dies within three years of "selling" the policy the Face Amount of the policy is included in their gross estate. This can cause huge tax problems down the road. If anyone out here reading this is approached by someone who wants to buy your life insurance policy, beware!

It's discrimination if they're doing it because you are disabled.
It sounds like you need to talk to legal aid: http://www.legal-aid.org/en/home.aspx They can help you find an attorney to talk to, even if you can't afford an attorney on your own.
You can also try contacting your center for independent living. Here's a resource for finding such a center near you. http://www.bcm.edu/ilru/html/publication... Part of the problem with the landlord may be communication. Many people don't realize the deaf communicate in a different language (different syntax and grammar) than the hearing. It's called ASL. A center for independent living might help you find an interpreter or other resources in the community.
If you feel you are being discriminated against because you are disabled, you can file a complaint with HUD. Here's info on how to do that: http://portal.hud.gov/portal/page/portal...
You don't have to move out right away. In order to evict you, he will have to serve you with written notice and then file in court and you both appear before the judge to give your sides of the case. If the landlord has no legal cause to evict you, then the judge will rule against him. It's very important to get good legal advice on how to proceed. That's why you need to contact legal aid.
--- edited to add ---
Beware advice on the Internet. People will offer it whether they know what they are talking about or not. For example, several people mentioned the ADA, but the ADA only applies to housing if the housing is owned by a government, ie public housing, in which case you'd be dealing with the housing authority, not a landlord.
The correct law in housing cases is usually the Fair Housing Amendments Act.
Contact a real lawyer. You need real help to protect yourself. Call legal aid.
First Amendment Versus Constitutional Law?
I'M Doing A Case Trial From The Original Monkey Scopes Trial Back In 1925. I'M A Witness To The Prosecution Team And I'M A Law Expert. I'M Suppose To Talk On Constitutional Laws And That Mr. Scopes Violated The Law And Therefore He Was Brought Up To Trial. But The Opposing Team Is Using The First Amendment (Freedom Of Speech) As A Reason To Why Scopes Taught Evolution.
So My Question, Is There Any Statements Regarding How The First Amendment Cannot Be Brought Up When One Has Violated A Constitutional Law? The Limitations To The First Amendment?
I'Ve Googled And Read Articles On This, And I Found Nothing On It. I'M Not Sure If It'S Because There Aren'T Any Statements About It Or It'S Because I'M A Total Noob With The United States Law And Constitutions.
Answers Are Very Much Appreciated, Please And Thank You.
It was a GRAND WASTE OF TIME.
But what person living in 1925 could not become immersed in a trial that set out to prove if we humans evolved from apes or were created by an Almighty being? This made it a SENSATIONAL trial that garnered the headlines every day in the USA. When the dust settled, however, the trial proved to be unimportant and a grand waste of time,
What most people have lost sight of after 86 years is that the Scopes Monkey Trial was nothing more than a publicity stunt. John Scopes, the teacher, for lack of a better term, was ‘recruited’ to be the defendant in the case by the ACLU. There was no ‘Salem Witch-Hunt’ in Dayton with preachers trolling the hallways of Dayton’s schools hunting for teachers who were violating Tennessee’s Butler Act on teaching evolution. But what person living in 1925 could not become immersed in a trial that set out to prove if we humans evolved from apes or were created by an Almighty being? This made it a SENSATIONAL trial that garnered the headlines every day in the USA.
“The whole idea of suing a teacher for teaching evolution was not conceived by the citizens of Dayton, Tennessee, but rather was promoted by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in New York City. The ACLU advertised in newspapers to locate a teacher in Tennessee who would be willing to test the Butler Act in the courts (with all expenses to be paid by the ACLU). A Dayton resident, George Rappleyea, saw an ACLU advertisement in a Chattanooga newspaper and pressured his friend John Scopes to accept the offer. Unfortunately, Scopes was not a science teacher (he majored in prelaw) and had never actually taught evolution! Scopes was a math teacher and football coach who had merely filled in for the biology teacher (who was ill) for two weeks at the end of the school year. Still, with Scopes' reluctant permission, Rappleyea immediately notified the ACLU that "Professor J.T. Scopes, teacher of science at Rhea County High School, will be arrested and charged with teaching evolution."
It was a jury trial and Scopes was found guilty of teaching evolution theories in violation of Tennessee law, i.e., the Butler Act, and he was fined $100. That is all he was on trial for. In 1926, a year after the guilty verdict, the Tennessee Supreme Court reversed the decision of the Dayton court on a technicality and dismissed the case. The court commented, "Nothing is to be gained by prolonging the life of this bizarre case."
Evolution was viewed more 'cautiously', if not liberally, by southern (Fundamentalist) state governments a year after the trial:
"The Scopes trial by no means ended the debate over the teaching of evolution, but it did represent a significant setback for the anti-evolution forces. Of the fifteen states with anti- evolution legislation pending in 1925, only two states (Arkansas and Mississippi) enacted laws restricting teaching of Darwin's theory."
Other than this, nothing was accomplished. Frankly, it was pretty much a grand waste of time, but it sure made the headlines and stimulated the economy of Dayton, Tennessee.
Ct Security Deposit Laws?
I Lived In An Apartment Rom June 07 To June 08. I Was Never Late On Rent (Except For The Last Month) And Did No Damage To The Apartment.
Rent Was $850/Month
As A Security Deposit I Put Down $1425
I Did Not Pay My Last Months Rent, I Know I Have To Pay 5% Of My Rent ($42.50) Extra For Each Week It Was Late According To The Lease. There Was A 10 Day Grace Period In Which I Would Not Be Penalized For Not Paying Rent In The Begining Of The Month.
This Would Mean That I Would Owe Her (Landlord) $977.50 Including The Late Fees. Even Though I Didn'T Pay Last Months Rent, Is She Still Obligated To Give Me Back The $447.50 That Is Remaining Of My Security?
I Have Been Expecting It. She Was Given My Forwarding Address Prior To My Moving Out.
It Has Been Over 30 Days.
Is It Illegal Of Her To Keep My Remaining Money Or Am I In The Wrong??
she owes you and she is kiting.
.......however.......u indicated when you were there; I presume you were on an annual
lease. IT is possible that in CT, you must
give her a 2 mo written notice instead of
a 1 mo notice.
IS your old unit rented out now?
She can withhold security money if
the unit does not rent out quickly
and the state requires a 2 mo written
she is improperly holding your cash.
IF she is improperly withholding it
you can also ask her for 3x the
amount as a PENALTY ALLOWED IN
ALL STATES.......to motivate landlords to
refund within the 15 days obligation period.
