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.

Do I Really Need A Immigration Lawyer?
So, Im Mexican, I Was Brought To The Us When I Was 12 Years Old, Im 20 Now And I Have A 3 Year Old Daughter, I Got Married 4 Months Ago. My Wife Wants To Help Me Fix My Immigration Status But Everybody Has Tell Me That I Have To Go To Mexico During The Proceadure. Do I Really Need A Lawyer? Is He Gonna Make My Time In Mexico Less? What Benefits Do I Get From Having A Lawyer?
NO! you don't need a lawyer.
If you came to america with your passport and visa and over stayed!! You can fix your status easily! they just want to talk and everything it's all right in the finish!
If you came without visa or passport!! Man forget you don't have how to claim status and in this case I would search for a lawyer because it will be a pain.
If you have a visa and passport and over stayed illegally it's VERY EASY to adjust status because immigration just want to know that you didn't came to the USA to get married and obtain a green card!! because you were so young when you came.... So don't worry the process it's easy in this case it's just a matter of filling forms and always tell the truth because you can be denied not because you are illegal but for not telling the truth!
In your case you came as a child to the USA so it's nothing you have to say to make it better! say always the truth and you will be 100% fine.... if you lie you can get yourself the right to them deny your petition.
Having your passport File you petition forms for adjustment of status which it's kind expensive $1.050 dollars+ the medical fees 300 to 500 dollars total cost depend which doctor you choose but you have to do this analysis with the doctor pointed by the immigration office.
File you adjustment of status petition which will take around 4 to 6 months to receive a date to an interview that you will need to bring your documents, analysis sealed and they will take your fingerprints and in not time you will receive your green card by mail at home.
Never leave the country because your entry will be denied for 10 years not matter if you are married and have a baby and then you will need to apply to another process to forgiveness for been an illegal which it's expensive kind 5 thousand dollars the all process and maybe it will work .... maybe not! but don't leave unless you adjust your immigration status first. If you have your passport and visa you will be fine!
Can A Divorce Lawyer Fire A Client While The Client Has Other Non Related Criminal Charges Pending?
The Person I'M Askin' About Has A Divorce Lawyer. The Divorce Lawyer Tried Once To Fire The Client Because He Wasn'T Getting Enough Info (Phone Numbers) But They Came To An Agreement, And The Lawyer Stayed.
Friday, 1 Week B4 The Freaking Divorce Hearing, The Lawyer Wants To Fire The Client Because The Retainer Money Is Low. The Client Can Pay Up The Retainer, But The Lawyer Doesn'T Want The Money.
So There'S Ex Parte Friday. The Plan At This Point Is To Bring Plenty Of Cash To Top Up The Retainer To The Hearing, And Then Talk To The Judge, See If He Will Not Let The Lawyer Quit.
Now The Person With The Lawyer (My Family Member) Has Pressing Criminal Charges.. He Doesn'T Even Want His Divorce Lawyer Knowing About The Criminal Charges, But Isn'T That Another Possible Reason The Judge Won'T Remove The Lawyer From The Case?
A lawyer can fire a client anytime he wants and vice versa. Just tell the judge your lawyer quit and you need time to get a new one.
A judge can not tell a lawyer to stay or go. The lawyer is an independent business man.
Question Concerning Fathers Visitation Rights?
Let Me Start Off By Saying I Have Two Boys - 4 And 5 Years Old, From A Previous Relationship. I Have Sole Custody Of Them But Their Father Has Court Ordered Visitation Rights. He Gets Them Every Other Fri. Well, My Boys Had Been Begging Me To Get Them Signed Up For Soccer. To Make Sure That Their Father Wouldnt Interfere With This I Asked Him,&Quot; If I Sign Up The Boys For Soccer Is It Alright If You Just Come To Their Games Saturday Morning And Take Them After That? &Quot; He Agreed. Now As Soon As I Sign Them Up He Says &Quot; Nope Thats Not Going To Fly. Im Coming On My Assigned Day And Time &Quot; He Lives About An Hour Away And The Kids Have To Start Soccer At 8 15 In The Morning. He Also Relies On Rides From Friends Since Hes On His Second Dui Charge. So, He Cant And Will Not Take Them. My Question Is What Can I Do ? If I Just Dont Answer The Door When He Comes Fri, Can I Get In Trouble? Is There Something I Can Get From The Courthouse Or Should I Contact My Lawyer? It Seems Like Such A Big Hassle Even Though All My Kids Want To Do Is Play Soccer. I Don'T Want To Argue With Him And Make Things Difficult. I Told Him He Could Make Up The Time With Them, So Im Not Denying Him From Seeing His Boys. My Kids Have Been Looking Forward To This And I Dont Want Their Dad To Ruin It Just Because He Enjoys Getting Under My Skin. Its Also Court Ordered That He Pays Child Support But He Hasnt Paid In 5 Months Yet I Still Allow Him Visitation. Thanks For The Help :)
No you will not get into trouble, take your sons to soccer. You have made an effort to give the father reasonable visitation time. That is what the court orders when you have full custody. It's not your fault or the children's that the father is a loser with no license. No judge in his right mind would ever side with him over a mother that cares for her children and they want to be involved in sports.
If you ask me the man's a loser and lucky he has any rights at all. The most you'll get is a letter in the mail asking you to make sure he is able to get reasonable parenting time, answer that letter with exactly what you have provided in this question and they will laugh him out of the building.
I hope I helped
Is This A Case Of Medical Negligence An Is There An Attorney That Will Sue On My Behalf?
My Grandmother Is 90Yrs Old And Suffers From Dementia. A Few Months Ago My Aunts And Uncles Agreed To Take Shifts In Caring For Her At Her Home. A Few Weeks Afterward They (The Aunts And Uncles) Got Into An Argument About Her (My Grandmother) Care, And One Of Her Children, Presented A False Power Of Attorney, Took Her To A Psychiatric Hospital For The Elderly. Now My Grandmother Had Never Been Violent Or Problematic Before This Indecent, But After One Night There She Was Confused, Violent, And &Quot;Wanted To Go Home.&Quot; When My Mother Found Out About This She Gave The Hospital Her Valid Power Of Attorney And Had Her Released. The Very Night My Grandmother Was Released She Was Still Confused And Violent So My Mother Had No Choice But To Take Her Back To The Hospital. The Next Week My Mother Had A Meeting With One Of The Doctors Of That Hospital (To See About Putting My Grandmother In A Nursing Home). At That Very Meeting The Doctor Told My Mother That My Grandmother &Quot;Would Have To Be At This Hospital For 7 Days, And We Would Have To Put Her On Medication 'Black Labeled' By The Fda.&Quot; After The 7 Days The Doctor Changed His Mind And Wanted To Keep My Grandmother For Another 20 Days. When My Mother Disagreed To His Proposal,L He Presented Her With A Blackmail That If My Grandmother Was Taken From His Care He Would Make It Impossible For Her To Be Admitted To A Nursing Home. Despite What The Doctor Had Said My Mother Took My Grandmother From Under His Care, And Tried To Have Her Admitted To Multiple Nursing Homes. When The Nursing Homes Would Not Admit My Grandmother They Said That She Would Have To Be Readmitted To The Hospital We Had Taken Her From Because Of What The Doctor Had Put In Her Medical File.
(Sorry For The Punctuation).
I believe any attorney can win that case. It is a no brainier. Try to get proof of what he said, even if it means having another meeting with a tape recorder in your pocket.
mnwoman...it is the point that the grandmother came back violent...they don't have good medical care. Many places that deal with the elderly have proof of abuse to patients. Point it you need to loko at it other than just facts but individually
Construction Law - Submittals?
I Work For An Electrical/Low Voltage Contractor. I Am Working On A Project For The City And With Past History With Working With The City, They Have Never Wanted To Own Up To Any Changes And Expect The Contractor To Pay For Everything.
I Recently Submitted A Submittal Package On Light Fixtures And The City Reviewed Them And Approved Them. I Ordered The Material And Had It Stored In Our Warehouse For Installation. 1 Day Before Some 8&Quot; Recessed Trough Fixtures Needed To Be Installed The City Told Me They Wanted Louver Lenses And Not Acrylic. I Told Them This Change Would Come At A Cost, Since Louver Packages Tend To Cost More Per Fixture And They Claimed I Was In The Wrong, Because They Intended For A Louver Fixture Even Though The Submittals They Approved Clearly Displays An Acrylic Lens.
Another Issue That Resulted With The Same Fixtures Is The Length Of Some Of Them. The Fixtures Come In 2', 3', And 4' Sections, Or They Come In 6' And 8' Sections By Combining 2 Fixture Housings. They Claimed In An Addendum Before My Bid Was Due &Quot;The Fixtures Should Fit The Maximum Possible Length According To The Specifications&Quot;, But The Specifications I Received Didn'T Have A Specific Length, Only Said What Wall They Should Be Placed On. I Had 6' And 8' Sections Clearly Displayed In My Package That Was Approved. We Come To Find Out The 8' Section Won'T Fit And They Want 7' (3' And 4' Section) And Are Claiming I Am In The Wrong. On The Other Spectrum, The Distributor Gave My Vendor The Wrong Pricing For These Fixtures And Said They Will Own Up To The Original Mistake, But I Will Have To Purchase Full Priced Fixtures For Any Changes In Work. What Was Originally An 8' Fixture For $300 Would Now Cost $530 For A 7' Fixture.
What I Am Asking Is, How Much Weight Does My Submittal Package Have That I Turned In? The Project Was Only $20K, But The Change From An 8' To 7' Fixture Will Cost $1500 And We Would Take A Huge Loss On The Project. It Seems Wrong That The Contractor Has To Take The Hit When Both The Distributor And Owner Made Very Large Mistakes On This Job.
Any Insight Will Help.
If it was specified, the party falling short of the spec is financially responsible. Your submittal package should have binding language that reflects that concept.
You mention "huge loss", but $1500 may be the cost of securing your future shortlisting in projects with this client, going forward. If I told you that I (as an agent) could *guarantee the successful close* of this deal at the price you had otherwise bid, would you pay me for that service? If no, then the answer is simple:walk away.
I have always padded my bids for municipalities and government projects, especially when I see that they don't have much experience in my specific industry; it is unfortunate that the general "impedance mismatch" between consumer and supplier in these situations incurs a lot of babysitting. The extra compensation makes it more palatable.
