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.

Can Anyone Give Me Some Free Legal Advice?
Divorced 5 Yrs Ago And By My Own Mistake I Never Thought To Take My Ex Off My Insurance, My Boss Is Now Holding This Against Me From Either Stating I Am No Longer And Employee So That I Can File For My Umemployment. I Am Out On Sick Leave With Doctors Excuses And My Boss Is Also Refusing To Sign My Short Term Disability Form He Has Also Showed My Dr.'S Excuses To All The Other Employees Stating That They Are Fake (Which They Are Not) And The Insurance Company Is Sending Out A Packet Giving Us The Chance To Remove Any Dependents We Should'Nt Have On Our Policy. My Question Is, Is This Legal What My Boss Is Doing And Do I Have Any Rights In This Matter?There Was No Attempt To Defraud We Never Seperated And Thought We Were Common Law Married.
Can anyone give me some free legal advice?
YES but do you really think it is wise to count on the accuracy and relevance of free legal advice?
how can you claim to be divorced for 5 years and then state that you "thought we were common law married."?
how can they stop you from filing for unemployment?
if you are no longer employed you can file....the state will determine if you qualify and are eligible.
if you have short-term disability insurance file a claim with the insurance company. of course you can NOT be on STD and be eligible for unemployment. just file for everything and let the insurance and state work it out..........
just be sure you are honest with everyone and do not hide any facts. if you are approved for both make sure you let them both know, if you fail to do so and get caught you could be charged with fraud, lose ALL benefits, possibly lose the right to claim benefits in the future and could be held responsible to repay any funds received.
Where Do You Find Cheap Lawyer?
Where Can I Find Cheap Divorce Lawyer In Morris County Area In Nj? I'Ve Been Looking For One For My Friend
You should remember that you get what you pay for. A cheap lawyer might be a lawyer who accepts a really low retainer - but instead of 20 hours worth of work, your friend will get 10 hours worth of work. And it probably won't be quality work.
If your friend is not eligible for free legal representation (check with your county's legal services program), then she might be better off representing herself. A (cheap) bad lawyer can do far more damage than having no lawyer at all.

How Long Can The Court Delay A Trial Date?
What Is Considered A Speedy Trial?
Someone I Know Has Been In Jail Custody Now For 33 Days Now, Just Went To Omnibus Hearing And Now They &Quot;Continued&Quot; The Omnibus Hearing To The Beginning Of September And The Jury Trial, Which Was Supposed To Be At The Beginning Of June, But Now To The Middle Of October.
I Don'T Know Why They Delayed It, I Guess They Just Want More Time To Mess Around.
What Is Frustrating Is That They Delayed The Trial Date When There Is So Much Evidence That The Person I Know Was Hostage And Had To Do What They Were Told Or Else. So It'S Gets Me That Someone Who Is Telling The Truth And Nothing But The Truth, They Still Have To Be In Jail For So Long, And They Have More Than Enough Evidence To Prove That The Person I Know Was Held Hostage And Was Beat.
So I Am Asking Any Attorney On Here If They Know Anything That Can Be Said To Either Have The Trial Set Earlier Or To At Least Have The Person I Know At Least Just Get House Arrest Or Parole/ Probation Until The Trial Date. Or Something To Help.
This Case Is Easy To Prove With All The Evidence There Is. The Law Is Just Taking Their Sweet Time Because They Are Not The Ones Behind Bars When Their The Victim. I Could Settle The Case Myself Right Now There Is So Much Proof. It'S Messed Up What They Are Doing To The Person I Know, They Got A Kid That Needs Them. And It'S Not Their Fault They Were A Victim So Why Do They Have To Be In Jail For So Long.
So Is There Any &Quot;Legal&Quot; Action We Can Take To Actually Have This Be A &Quot;Speedy&Quot; Trial?
A few month's delay IS a speedy trial. I assume he has a lawyer, and that lawyer knows what needs to be done. If the evidence was as clear cut as you suppose, your friend would be out on bail right now, not sitting in jail. It's those with very serious charges and/or those who constitute a flight risk who are held until trial.
I'm guessing your friend isn't a totally upstanding citizen.
Once his case comes to trial, he'll get his day in court

State Divorce Laws: Pennsylvania

If the court discovers it does not have jurisdictional rights to hear the case it will not be accepted or it will eventually be dismissed. The requirements are as follows:
Either spouse must be a resident of the state of Pennsylvania for at least six months prior to filing. A proceeding for divorce or annulment may be brought in the county: 1.where the defendant resides; 2.if the defendant resides outside of this Commonwealth, where the plaintiff resides; 3.of matrimonial domicile, if the plaintiff has continuously resided in the county; 4.prior to six months after the date of final separation and with agreement of the defendant, where the plaintiff resides or, if neither party continues to reside in the county of matrimonial domicile, where either party resides; or 5.after six months after the date of final separation, where either party resides. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3104)
Grounds for Filing: The Complaint for Divorce must declare the appropriate Pennsylvania grounds upon which the divorce is being sought. The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree upon and can substantiate, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court. The divorce grounds are as follows:
Mutual consent.--The court may grant a divorce where it is alleged that the marriage is irretrievably broken and 90 days have elapsed from the date of commencement of an action under this part and an affidavit has been filed by each of the parties evidencing that each of the parties consents to the divorce.
Irretrievable breakdown.-- The court may grant a divorce where a complaint has been filed alleging that the marriage is irretrievably broken and an affidavit has been filed alleging that the parties have lived separate and apart for a period of at least two years and that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
1.Committed willful and malicious desertion, and absence from the habitation of the injured and innocent spouse, without a reasonable cause, for the period of one or more years. 2.Committed adultery. 3.By cruel and barbarous treatment, endangered the life or health of the injured and innocent spouse. 4.Knowingly entered into a bigamous marriage while a former marriage is still subsisting. 5.Been sentenced to imprisonment for a term of two or more years upon conviction of having committed a crime. 6.Offered such indignities to the innocent and injured spouse as to render that spouse's condition intolerable and life burdensome. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3301)
Counseling or Mediation Requirements: The court may order the parties to attend an orientation session to explain the mediation process. Thereafter, should the parties consent to mediation, the court may order them to mediate such issues as it may specify.
The court shall adopt local rules for the administration of the mediation program to include rules regarding qualifications of mediators, confidentiality and any other matter deemed appropriate by the court.
The court shall not order an orientation session or mediation in a case where either party or child of either party is or has been a subject of domestic violence or child abuse at any time during the pendency of an action under this part or within 24 months preceding the filing of any action under this part.
The Supreme Court shall develop model guidelines for implementation of this section and shall consult with experts on mediation and domestic violence in this Commonwealth in the development thereof. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3302 and 5303)
Filing Spouse Title: Plaintiff. The Plaintiff is the spouse who initiates the filing procedure with the family law or domestic relations court.
Non-Filing Spouse Title: Defendant. The Defendant is the spouse who does not file the initial divorce papers, but rather receives them by service.
Court Name: Court of Common Pleas, __________ County, Pennsylvania. This is the Pennsylvania court where the divorce will be filed. The court will assign a case number and have jurisdictional rights to facilitate and grant the orders concerning, but not limited to: property and debt division, support, custody, and visitation. The name of the court is clearly represented at the top of all documents that are filed.
Primary Documents: Complaint for Divorce and Decree of Divorce. These are the essential documents needed to start and finalize a divorce according to Pennsylvania law. There are anywhere from ten to twenty other documents that may be required throughout the filing process. A few other documents that are typically filed during the process are: Affidavit of Verification, Domestic Relations Income and Expense Statement, Notice to File Social Security Numbers, Marital Settlement Agreement , Acknowledgement, and Praecipe to Transmit Record.
Court Clerk's Title: County Clerk's Office of the Court of Common Pleas. The clerk or the clerk's assistants will be the people managing your paperwork with the court. The clerk's office will keep the parties and the lawyers informed throughout the process in regards to additional paperwork that is needed, further requirements, and hearing dates and times.
Property Distribution: Since Pennsylvania is an "equitable distribution" state, the marital property shall be divided in an equitable fashion. Equitable does not mean equal, but rather what is fair. The court will encourage the parties to reach a settlement on property and debt issues otherwise the court will declare the property award.
In an action for divorce or annulment, the court shall, upon request of either party, equitably divide, distribute or assign, in kind or otherwise, the marital property between the parties without regard to marital misconduct in such proportions and in such manner as the court deems just after considering all relevant factors, including: 1.The length of the marriage. 2.Any prior marriage of either party 3.The age, health, station, amount and sources of income, vocational skills, employability, estate, liabilities and needs of each of the parties. 4.The contribution by one party to the education, training or increased earning power of the other party. 5.The opportunity of each party for future acquisitions of capital assets and income. 6.The sources of income of both parties, including, but not limited to, medical, retirement, insurance or other benefits. 7.The contribution or dissipation of each party in the acquisition, preservation, depreciation or appreciation of the marital property, including the contribution of a party as homemaker. 8.The value of the property set apart to each party. 9.The standard of living of the parties established during the marriage. 10.The economic circumstances of each party, including Federal, State and local tax ramifications, at the time the division of property is to become effective. 11.Whether the party will be serving as the custodian of any dependent minor children.
Lien.-The court may impose a lien or charge upon property of a party as security for the payment of alimony or any other award for the other party.
Family home.-The court may award, during the pendency of the action or otherwise, to one or both of the parties the right to reside in the marital residence.
Life insurance.-The court may direct the continued maintenance and beneficiary designations of existing policies insuring the life or health of either party which were originally purchased during the marriage and owned by or within the effective control of either party. Where it is necessary to protect the interests of a party, the court may also direct the purchase of, and beneficiary designations on, a policy insuring the life or health of either party. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3501, 3502, 3505)
Spousal Support: Not all cases involve support from one spouse to the other. The obligation of one spouse to support the other financially for a temporary or permanent basis is decided on a case-by-case basis as agreed to by the parties or at the court's discretion.
Where a divorce decree has been entered, the court may allow alimony, as it deems reasonable, to either party only if it finds that alimony is necessary.

Can Criminal Attorneys Become District Attorneys?
Or Is There A Clause That Says They Can't? Or, Is It Just A Pretty Stupid Thing To Do?
I'm assuming that you mean criminal defense attorneys becoming the politically elected district attorney.
Many assistant district attorneys (not politically elected, but hired by the DA's office) were once criminal defense attorneys, and many politically elected district attorneys were likewise defense attorneys, but the politically elected ones would do well to have prosecution experience, because otherwise it would be a good attack ad by the other side saying that you're only experience in criminal law was defending criminals and not trying to put them in jail.
