4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you need a lawyer for any excuse, you need to work closely together as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they can be, they're likely to need your help. Here are four important methods to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they should help them win. 3. Arrive Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court which you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Do Most Lawyers Offer Free Initial Consultation?
Is This A Common Practice By All Lawyers? Is It Offered By Well-Established Law Firms As Well As Lawyers Who Are Just Starting Out In The Profession And Looking For New Clients?
It depends on your situation--there are many reasons why you might need to hire a lawyer. But really, any lawyer should be willing to meet with you and talk a bit about your situation without charge so that you can decide whether nor not to hire him.
During this meeting, the lawyer may give you some free advice, a general assessment of your case and perhaps suggest a general strategy so you can get a sense of whether you want to hire him. You shouldn't have to pay for this meeting.
The best attorneys seem to be pretty generous with free advice and initial impressions. They know it can lead to more business.
But I'd expect any advice to be kind of general and nonspecific, for several reasons. First, the attorney probably needs to fully understand your situation and all of the facts before giving specific advice. Depending on your situation, this could take more time than available during an initial consultation. Also, from a professional liability standpoint, an attorney may be reluctant to provide specific legal advice without a written agreement in place (in fact, this is a legal requirement in many states). Finally, attorneys get paid for giving advice--its how they make a living. If they told you everything you need to know free of charge, they wouldn't be in business very long.
So, for example, in an initial consultation you are more likely to get advice like "don't sign anything without legal review," "don't talk to the cops without an attorney present" or an assessment of your case, like "wrongful termination cases like this are tough." But the attorney shouldn't charge for this.
How To Get A Dui Dismissed Or Dropedo With A 0.08% Alcohol Level For The First Time?
The most common reason DUI charges are dismissed are issues with the accuracy of the tests that were used to test you BAC. Here is a law article that goes over some issues that can come into question after a DUI arrest and can factor into the final decision by the judge: http://www.tandvlaw.com/articles/strateg... But a DUI is a very serious offense and not something-like a traffic ticket-in which you can fairly easily get defense driving. For a first offense DUI you are probably looking at a hefty fine, alcohol education classes, license suspension, and community service. Here is another article that goes over punishments for first offense DUIs: http://www.tandvlaw.com/articles/punishm... If you have a clean background, the fact that your BAC was fairly low should be factored into the sentencing. But as far as being dismissed, there would have to be an issue with the arrest, testing, etc. procedures.

Is This Legal (Please Help Me With This)?
My Husband And I Have Been Separated A Year Now. Everything We Purchased Within The Union Of Our Marriage Including All My Personal Things Are In Storage. Right After We Separated I Had Nervous Break Down So He Took Care Of Moving For Me. He Was The Provider And Its Real Hard For Me To Get Back On My Feet But Anyway He Wants Me To Pay Half Of The Storage Fee Before I Can Get My Daughter And My Things. He Doesnt Pay Alimony And I Really Cant Afford A Lawyer Trying To Go Through Legal Aid But They Are Giving Me The Run Around. Please If Anybody Know Where I Can Go To Get Legal Help I Am Open To Suggestions. I Am Really Not Worried About My Things My Child Wants Her Things.
When you rent a storage area, there is a contract that is signed. Is the contract in his name, or in yours? Have you signed any kind of agreement with the storage company?
If it is in his name only, you should contact your local law enforcement and explain the situation to them. They should be able to retrieve your items for you. If your husband wants you to pay half of the storage costs, he would need to pursue a claim in conciliation (small claims) court.
You don't say what state you're in, so I can't give you a link to your state's bar association, but every state has a state bar association that will offer you a list of attorneys who will help you at no charge. You can find the phone number by using Yahoo or google and searching for "bar association" and "Idaho" (substitute whatever state you're in).
If you and your husband are not working toward a reconciliation, you should probably pursue finalizing your divorce sooner rather than later, for many reasons - including the fact that you will likely be awarded maintenance (alimony) and child support. In addition, there is nothing currently that is keeping your husband from running up additional debt, which the court may split between the two of you when you do divorce. You really do need to speak with an attorney licensed in your state about all these issues.
Good luck to you.
Should I Contact A Labor Attorney?
When I Was Hired For My Recent Job-Part Of My Contract Required Me To Move To The Town Where The Job Was And I Did. I Uprooted My Family And Moved. Then-About A Week Ago, My Boss Told Me That They Were Moving Me Back To The Corporate Office (An Hour Away) And Giving Me A Different Distict (Which Requires Travel Up To 75% Of The Time) To Oversee-With No Increase In Pay. I Told Them I Just Couldnt Do That Since I Just Moved And I Have 3 Kids, To Which They Responded I Either Take The Other Position Or Resign All Together. I Subsequently Resigned But Now I Am Stuck In The Town Where There Are No Other Jobs That Pay What I Was Making Before. Do I Have A Case To Sue This Company So They Can Help Me Move Back To My Original Town?
Since you resigned probably not. If they would have terminated you that would have been a different story.
Now if on your letter of resignation you stated the reason you was having to resign was because of the way the company was moving you, and since you had recently moved at the Company's request you were not financially able to move again so soon without the company paying the moving expenses.
If you put something along those lines on your letter of resignation you might have a case. Hope you kept a copy of your letter of resignation.
Intellectual Property Laws/Rights?
What Is The Statute That Protects Intellectal Property Before Filing For The Actual Copyright, Trademarks, And All That. I Ask Because I Am In The Proces Of Creating A Website That Uses A Software Program But I Am Ready To Launch It But Until All The Paperwork Is Done And Accepted I Want To Add A Disclaimer To My Website That Says It Is Protected By Intellectual Property Statute But I Can'T Find Out Exactly Where It Is From
There is no such thing as an encompassing "intellectual property statute." For example, the Copyright Act governs copyright law, and the Lanham Act governs federal trademark law. You will need to be more specific if you want to give proper notice of your intellectual property rights.
A proper copyright notice includes a circle-c symbol, the year of first publication, and the name of the copyright owner.
A proper trademark notice for an unregistered trademark is a TM symbol.
