4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you want a legal professional at all, you have to work closely together as a way to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're planning to need your help. Listed here are four important ways to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to 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 information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, whenever. In fact, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Public Transportation: Bus Slip And Fall?
A Friend Who Was On Her Way To Work One Rainy Night Fell On A Wet Slippery Bus Floor 2 Days Ago In Phoenix, Az And She Is Wondering If She Has A Case. The Bus Driver Did Not File An Incident Report Nor Did She Obtain Any Transit Information. She Is Wondering If There Is Video Footage Will It Help?
Another Factor I'M Concerned About Is That She Let Go Of The Railing To Put Her Glasses In Her Purse When She Fell (She Stated She Slid All The Way To The Back Of The Bus) And The Driver Asked Her If She Was Okay And She Replied, Yes! She Stated She Did Not Take A Seat (There Were Seats Available) Because She Was Drenched From The Heavy Rain. She Went To The Er The Next Day After Work And Was Released With A Sprained Foot/Ankle.
Even If She Is Found To Be Negligent By Letting Go Of The Railing, Does She Still Have A Case Since The Bus Driver Did Not Complete Any Injury Or Incident Protocol?
Any And All Legal Advice Is Greatly Appreciated.
YES YES YES
She fell down. Sue God for Gravity
She slipped Sue the shoe Manufacturer for slippery shoes.
Sue her parents for not teaching her how to walk.
Sue the Bus company for driving in the rain.
Sue the driver for ASKING are you all right. He should have ignored the I am fine and just stopped the bus called an ambulance and filled out paperwork for hours.
Can the citizens of Phoenix sue her for not sitting down? For not holding on for not using common sense?
YES go get a lawyer He will think of something. He will get his pay your friend may get a dollar or two and your taxes will go up to pay for it.
Curious does she have ANY responsibility for her own feet.Using Normal care and caution when walking on a wet surface.
Did she HAVE TO take off her glasses and put them in her purse. Could she have held on with one arm around the pole while doing so.
Does she think she won the lottery?
Where to you think the money comes from to pay her.? YOUR POCKET YOUR TAXES.
If she is so concerned about missing work it is obvious she has not much concern or injury. She is just looking for an extra pay check to cover her not thinking and riding in a safe manner.
Why would the driver complete an INJURY report when she replied I AM OK.
She could have contacted transit IMMEDIATELY when she got home. She WAITED for more than a day
She could of contacted transit and filled in her own report.She choose NOT TO.
. Maybe your friend fell down at home too later. Maybe she slipped BEFORE she got on the bus. She will have a hard time proving the source of injury.
Is There A Way To Find Out If The Company That You Plan On Investing/Buying Stock Is Being Sued /In Litigation
Yes. The SEC requires that lawsuits meeting certain thresholds be disclosed. These will be found in the SEC filings. You will have to hunt a bit for them and the document might say that management does not believe that the suits will have a material impact on operations.
For example, this quote is from the recent Merck 10-Q:
"ProceedingsThe Company is involved in various claims and legal proceedings of a nature considered normal to its business, including product liability, intellectual property, and commercial litigation, as well as additional matters such as antitrust actions."
However, there is then a lengthy discussion of Vioxx-related lawsuits.
Essentially, you will have to go directly to the SEC filings for publicly-traded U.S. companies.
What Exactly Does A District Attorney Do?
What Exactly Does A District Attorney Do? Would I Be Able To Talk To Him/Her About My Case? (I Am The Victim) But Not Sure If I Stand In The Case.
For Information About The Case Read My Other Question. Ty :]
A DA is the prosecutor. He is an elected official and the chief law enforcement officer for your borough or county.
There are hundreds of assistants da's (called ADA). An assistant DA assigned to the court room you are going to will be handling your case.
When they first call the case you stand up and come forward. When they see you are there they pass the case for later. In the in between time of of the many ada's assigned to the court room will talk with you. You can tell them all about how you want to drop the case and they will tell you if they are going to prosecute even if you refuse to cooperate.
So that is the time to talk and that is the time that decisions on the case are made.
having PMDD is not the same as being nuts and on drugs. He is an abuser, make all the excuses you want for him, like your parents do, but you eventually will end up in a hospital or morgue. He has picked you, his sister, to take his uncontrollable age out on. Sounds harsh but I worked way to many cases like yours
Since this in NYC chances are you are going to a special domestic violence court. These ada's handle this kind of stuff hundreds of times a day.
The court facility will likely also have a separate social service unit to assist you with any OPs or other domestic problems you might have.
You don't have to show up for the first hearing. That is an arraignment hearing. The DA's office will notify you, likely via subpoena, when you ado have to show up.
If you want to show at the arraignment and find out if they will drop (I hope they don't) you can.

It all depends on what are you live in. No one can predict the hiring trends, you know? If this is something you want to do, don't let negative people like Mailaccount influence your decision with their propaganda.
With that said, I've taken family law as a paralegal in the state of Texas. I can give you a little insight as to what a divorce attorney does. You will have to do more than just divorces. Let's get that out there right now. Most divorce attorneys are simply "family law" attorneys because with each cases comes a different set of facts. You can't be a divorce attorney without knowledge of other areas. You will have to deal with child support issues, abuse issues, adoptions issues, and the list really goes on.
You have to be strong. People are going to walk into your office and pour the intimate details of their relationships. You will have to have the ability to put aside your personal beliefs and morals and accept that everyone is entitled to legal representation despite how you may personally feel about their situation. You have to be empathetic and caring. When you think about dealing with family law issues, my family law professor said, "Think about the worst cases of abuse you ever saw on television. Then multiply it by ten. That is what used to walk into my office." Is that always the case? No, but he told us some stories that sent shivers down our spine. I recently attended a paralegal seminar and in our class regarding ethics, the attorney disclosed to us that he recently received a signed document in the mail. It had the bloody fingerprints of the wife who was found dead a few days later. These are the type of scenarios you will have to be prepared to face and help your client through.
As for daily routine, you may have a hearing. You might have a mediation. You will be taking phone calls and drafting petitions and will have a large calendar to keep track of. Deadlines are crucial, especially in divorces. There will be a lot of bargaining with other attorneys and trying to find a compromise to what you may think is the stupidest thing in the world. My family law professor said that he and the opposing counsel was so fed up about their clients bickering about a crock pot, that the two attorneys went out on the lunch break and split the costs to an identical crock pot. True story. He keeps the receipt in his wallet to remind him not to go back to family law LOL.
It takes a special person to do family law because the matters you will handle are people's lives. It isn't like suing someone for damages to a car. You will deal with domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse, and plain wackiness. You have to be prepared to accept that you will not be appreciated near as much as you should. You will need to really be able to tell yourself that you are doing a good thing, because the clients won't. They are so wrapped up in their emotional mess, they aren't going to take the time to tell you that you did a good job.
I work as a paralegal and I always tell the "dark side" of the law, because I think people get wrapped up in the money, or the prestige to have that J.D. hanging on the wall. I run into many attorneys that got into law for the wrong reasons. Make sure this is what you want to invest your life in. A great family law attorney needs to be able to rejoice on the small victories to make it through those darker cases. It isn't all bad, but you take the work that pays the bills. There is a lot of adult babysitting that goes along with being a divorce attorney. "Don't post that on Facebook!" "You said what on MySpace?"
One last story about family law before I submit. I was sitting at a volunteer luncheon with a table of family law paralegals. The lady to my right said, "I kid you not. She walked into the office with a box full of sex toys and demanded that my boss get them tested for DNA because she is sure her husband is cheating on her."
So, my advice...know what you're getting into. It is a noble profession and you will be able to help many people, but make sure you have the stomach for everything attached to it.
