4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a lawyer for any excuse, you must work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most importantly information another side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they need to help them to win. 3. Arrive Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each and every time. The truth is, because you may need to discuss very last minute details or even be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important so that you can convince the court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

I Need Legal Advice And Quick!?
Long Story Short;
Had A Guy Come To Quote Us On A Deck Build
Dog Got Outside And Went To Grab His Keys Dangling In His *** Pocket
Dog Bit ***, From What He Said He Was Ok We Offered Assistance He Insisted He Was Fine
Come 3 Years Later To Now, We Didnt Buy A Deck Because He Wanted Too Much Instead My Dad Built It Himself
So We Figure He Saw This And So Now He Wants To Sue
Alot Of Back And Forth But He Contacted Whoever And We Got A Call From Insurance That He Wants To Go Forward With A Lawsuit
We Recieved A Letter In The Mail
They Want $1 Million Plus Legal Fees
Is This Even Possible To Get 1Mill For An But Nip ?
How Can We Get Around This
Three years after the fact, the statute of limitations may have expired. Also, the $1 million demand is ridiculous. I think whoever is behind the letter is throwing shlt on the wall and seeing if it sticks.
Get yourself an attorney of your own and see what he advises.
Suicide And Public Property Damage Law In California?
First Off, This Is Just Because Of An Argument Some Of My Buddies Got Into, And We Consult The Yahoos For A Final Answer.
If A Minor Decides To Set Themselves On Fire, Say In A Town Plaza, Or Any Public Place, And It'S Not A Protest- Just Suicide, What Happens With Any Property Damages/ Endangerment Of Other People (Because Possibility Of Fire Spreading)? If The Person Dies, Does Their Family Have To Pay A Fee For Any Damage The Fire Caused (Or In Another Case, For Just The Possibility?) Also, What If The Person Survives? Do They Then Go To Jail? Or Forced Into A Mental Hospital?
You can sue the estate of an individual for torts they committed, so yes they could possibly recover. What would happen is anybody who had property damage from it or was injured could file a lawsuit against the estate, and then the estate would be responsible for paying any legal fees for defending the lawsuit as well as any judgement or settlement that it makes. So the family themselves wouldn't have to pay out of their own money, but it would come off the estate so the inheritance of the family and friends would be reduced.
While people could, in theory, sue the estate even if they didn't suffer any injury or damage to property, you have to show damages to recover in a civil case, so they would in all likelihood not recover anything.
If the person survived, they would likely be charged with some sort of a crime depending on the circumstances. If they were charged, they may be incompetent to stand trial in which case they could end up in a psychiatric or mental health facility of some sort. They could also be involuntarily committed regardless of whether or not they were charged if they can show that the person's condition poses a serious threat of bodily harm to themselves or others.
And you didn't ask this, but the fact that it was a protest even if it was wouldn't change anything. Freedom of speech isn't absolute, and you are still responsible for your actions. The only difference it may make is that the person would be more likely to face criminal charges instead of receiving any sort of medical help.
Becoming A Defense Lawyer?
Requirements For Employment?
Salary Starting Out?
I'm assuming you mean criminal defense.
qualifications? A law degree, bar admission, and criminal law clinic and clerkship experience during law school.
requirements for employment? See above.
Salary starting out? It depends on if you are working as a public defender or at a private law firm. As a PD, you could make as little as $35,000 in a low cost of living area, or as much as $80,000 in a high cost of living area. If you graduate at the top of your law school class, you could make six figures at your first job at a large private firm.
Advancement opportunities? Making partner at a law firm or advancing to Public Defender rather than Assistant Public Defender.
Benefits? Depends on the employer. A government job (public defender) will most likely have excellent benefits. A small law firm will most likely have terrible benefits (possibly not even offer you health insurance). A large firm will probably have a good benefits package.
Free Legal Consultation?
I Am Looking For Free Legal Advice In Relation To A Civil Suit Involving An Auto Accident Where I Am Now Being Sued. I Was Not Involved In The Accident In Any Way And It Was Proven At The Time The Criminal Trial Was Supposed To Take Place. The Case Was Thrown Out And I Was Null Processed. My Issue Now Is That The Civil Cases Are Still Wasting My Time And Missing Money From Work. I Feel That The Sworn Statements And Interogatories Are Slanderous Because I Was Not Involved. Coments Such As &Quot; Due To My Lack Of Due Care, Irresponsible, Wreckless.&Quot; I Find These Comments Truly Offensive And Since I'M Bieng Sued Rather Damaging If Believed By A Judge Or Jury. I Wolud Like To Know If I Have Any Legal Recourse Under The Laws For Libel Or Slander. Any Well Informed Opion Will Be Greatly Appreciated.
Get legal representation. I know it will cost money but if you are certain that you will win the civil suit then you can make them pay for attorney's fees. It sounds like this is more complictated than what a yahoo answers can provide. Slander and libel depend on how it has affected you regarding your profession, personal reputation in your community etc. Also, whether it was published or publicly announced in a newspaper or such. The accusations themselves are not slander but if tey were to say you were found responsible when it hasn't been found in the courts system yet, then maybe you would have something. If I were you, I would call your State Bar and ask for a lawyer referal.
My Exhusband Makes Approx. $250K Annually And I Make $48K I Can'T Affort To Pay Child Support?
My 2 Children, 17 And 15, Now Live With Their Father Full Time. He Is Very Spiteful As His Current Life Is Awful With His New Wife. He Currently Earns Approximately $250K Annually And I Only Make $48K Annually. I'M Sure It Doesn'T Matter But His Wife Makes Approximately $150K-$200K Annually. They Live Very Very Well. Expensive Cars, Memberships At The Best Clubs And Trips. I Am Going To Have To Pay $750 Monthly Which, After All Other Living Expenses For Myself, Not Including Clothing, Gas Or Groceries, I Would Be In The Negative $200. I'M Terrified And Don'T Know What To Do. Does Anyone Know Where I Can Turn? I Don'T Have Funds For A Lawyer. Help Please. I'M In Ontario
Contact your local Legal Aid office and see if you can get some help...as the kid's mother you should be liable for helping support them (regardless of what he makes) but if you've been ordered to pay more than you can afford, perhaps an adjustment can be made...otherwise, looks like you'll be getting an additional job to cover the balance...
Personal Injury Accident?
First I Am Not Represented? Second I Received A Called From The Insurance Company Wanting To Settle And See How Things Are Going. I Myself Had Minor Injury But I Am Still Have Flair Up. The Insurance Company Has Offer To Settle With Me. I Ask Her If She Was Willing To Negotiate Since I Have To Have Massages She Only Raised It 300 Dollars. I Am Not Sure Whether I Should Settle For Myself ? I Am Not Seeking Any Treatment From My Primary As I Was Told By Therapist To Continue To Exercise And Stretch Everyday. If I Am Not Receiving Treatment Yet Having Flair Ups Can The Insurance Company Force Me To Settle And Close?
It appears that based on your doctors reports that the insurance company has received, your injury is resolved, thus wanting to settle.
If you do not want to settle now, then just tell the adjuster that you want to wait. Most likely they will "diary" this once a month and call you back to see if ready to settle or not. This is standard.
In most states, you have up to 2 years to settle your injury. So, for instance if this accident happened 6 months ago, you have another 18 months from the date of the accident.
Having a lawyer or not may not change a thing. Since they have made an offer, they most likely have evaluated your injury and based on the amount they offered, is what they "value" the amount of your injury is worth,,,,,,,period.
Now if you were to choose to hire a lawyer, I suggest you make one thing clear and also have in the contract that you must sign with the lawyer. You tell the lawyer the amount the insurance company offered and the lawyer gets paid, only ANY amount over that offer. Since many times, people get lawyers after they make an offer, and then find out that the insurance will not BUDGE, and stay on their offer, thus after the lawyer takes 1/3, you now get 1/3 LESS, since no change.
