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.

Why Do People Hate Lawyers?
I'M Actually Quite Surprised To Find Out That Lawyers Are Seen In A Negative Light. How Come?
In my experience, lawyers really do care very deeply about justice. But 'justice' to a lawyer has a slightly different meaning from what an ordinary person might regard as 'justice'.
For example, say someone commits murder and is sentenced to life imprisonment. But at their trial, they were denied access to legal representation, some inadmissible evidence was allowed in support of the prosecution case, and the jury was bribed to convict. But he really was guilty, and the sentence reflects the seriousness of the crime.
If you ask most people whether that's a fair outcome, they'll probably say 'yes'. Someone committed a crime and they are being punished for it. Sounds good. But to a lawyer, that reasoning seems perverse. There's nothing fair about that outcome; it's clearly unjust for someone to be convicted in a rigged trial.
In other words, lawyers tend to place value in the processes of our legal system, not just the outcomes. The problem is that, to a layperson, a procedural irregularity in a trial tends to look like a very technical, pedantic argument that has nothing to do with whether the person is actually guilty. And of course lawyers get paid for having these technical arguments, so surely they're just doing it for the money, right? But the reality is that there is a reason behind all of these rules, and it is important to ensure that they are complied with. Regardless of whether someone is actually guilty or not, there is a value in having their case presented competently at a fair trial.
Any Real Estate Lawyers For An Affordable Price?
I Am Looking For A Real Estate Lawyer In Brooklyn, Ny That Can Do A Partion By Sale For Me For An Affordable Price. If You Can Help Or Know Anyone That Could Help Please Let Me Know, Thank You...
Define "affordable". What YOU can afford is very different than what I can afford. Also, going cheap on a lawyer almost will ALWAYS bite you in the end. The reason why they are cheap is because they are not very good and/or have a very bad reputation. Ever heard of the saying "You get what you pay for"?? Going cheap on legal ANYTHING is always a bad idea.
Self Defence (Lawyers/Law Students Only)?
If Someone Is Attacking A Friend Of Yours, You Jump In And Hit The Person To Stop Them From Inflicting Further Damage, Would This Be A Valid Defence Of Self Defence Should You Be Sued By The Party You Hit - Ie. Seeking Damages.
Even in circumstances where the accused has a defence of self defence to a criminal charge, he may still be held liable in the tort of negligence in respect of the same act (Revill v Newbery -  2 WLR 239).
Thus, where an occupier of premises comes across a burglar on his land he cannot act with total disregard to the burglar's safety, any more than one could attack an attacker, and the maxim ex turpi causa non oritur actio (no action will arise from a bad cause) cannot be invoked to provide the occupier or good samaritan with what would amount to a complete defence to the burglars/attackers claim for damages. However, even though such a complete defence may not be available, the courts are likely to reduce the amount of the claimant's award on the ground of contributory negligence. Trespass against the person is another possibility.
The law in the UK and the US are quite similar.
U.S. laws governing self-protection derive from the ancient English common law that held that a medieval Briton was obliged to retreat until his back was literally to a wall or a ditch before he was justified in fighting off an assailant. This so-called "retreat law" has been substantially modified in American courts, which have generally ruled that though a person must attempt to avoid trouble, he is not legally bound to flee if such action would increase his peril. Only Texas law ignores retreat altogether and permits an attacked person to stand and fight it out under any circumstances.
In the US and UK, once the fighting has begun, the law becomes a matter of interpretation. An attacked person is legally permitted to exert only as much force as is necessary to repel the aggressor. The word 'self' in self-defence is rather misleading because any person has a common law right (some might say an obligation) to prevent crime, whether that be to stop an assault, or otherwise.

How Do I Become A Good Lawyer?
After having worked at a Federal Court for years and knowing many good and many not so good attorneys, they key to a sucessful career in law is:
COMMUNICATION #1--if you communicate to your clients, then their happy. You communicate with the courts, i.e. judges, law clerks, etc. then the courts are happy===even if you mess up, people are much more willing to help you fix your mess up's when your communicating & polite about it.
Believe it or not, a low level clerk at the courts can make or break you in that court system. Judges ask their employees what attorneys are jerks and what attorney treat the employees well. Judges will deal with attorneys accordingly, even though most attorney's don't know that..we actually had a judge require an attorney to go to anger management courses before he was allowed back into her courtroom.
ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS #2--you MUST be extremely organized. Court filings have due dates and if they are not filed on time--FORGET IT! Even in the most intese court cases with all the evidence in the world to prove your case, if you file 1 document 10 minutes later then a judge tells you..your whole case could be thrown out.
KNOW THE LAWS that your specializing in--at 13 you probably don't realize all the different specialties that lawyers get into. For example many lawyers don't even step foot in court rooms, however their jobs are based on being lawyers. Especially in real estate law, etc. Most attorneys pick 1 or 2 fields of expertise, i.e. Bankruptcy Law or Divorce Law or Medical Malpractice or Real Estate Law or Probate Law. It would be difficult to become extremely knowledgeable in all these different specialties.
Good luck to you and I hope this gave you an "inside" perspective from a court employee dealing with both good and bad attorney's on a daily basis.
Filing An Assault Charge.?
My Niece Has A 6 Month Old Baby And Had Been On Her Job For 3 Days When This Happened. Thank Goodness She Still Had Her Job After Missing Work Due To Incarceration. My 18 Yr Old Niece Was Getting Off The Public Bus That Take Them To School In Front A Corner Store, When She Got Into An Argument With 2 Girls(Also 18) She Goes To School With. (She'D Argue All The Time At School With These Same Girls). Girl A Ran Up On My Niece And Begun To Physically Fight. Afterwards Continuing To Walk To School My Niece And Girl B Begin To Argue Then Girl B Came Closer And Sprayed Mace (Pepper Spray) Into My Niece Face. Girl B Did It 4 Times Before Punching On My Niece As They Begin To Fight As Well. (With Other Students Standing By Watching And Recording With Cellphones). The Cops Came And Took All 3 To Jail For Disturbing The Peace. We Had To Bond My Niece Out Of Jail And She Had To Go To Court The Next Morning. While In Court The Judge Ask Them Why They Are Fighting My Niece Replied &Quot;Because They Don&Quot;T Like Me&Quot;! The Judge Released My Niece, Girl A And Girl B On There Own Re-Constance And Gave Them Another Court Day And Informed Them If They Were To Get To A Fight Before That Court Date They All Will Do Jail Time And If They Don'T Like Each Other Stay Away. First, I'M Upset That My Niece Nor The Girls Where Able To Explain How They Ended Up In Jail. No Rights Or Wrongs Or Justice. Even Though My Niece Was Jumped And Maced And All Of Them Where Punished Equally To Me That'S Not Justice! A Day Later Her Eyes Are Still Hurting And Her Body Aching. Girl A And B On Facebook Bragging About What They'D Done. Here'S The Question Should She Go To The Doctor, Get A Police Report, Obtain Video Footage And Facebook Posts And File Assault Charges?
One that is messed up, and two I know if someone was physically attacking me i would strike back out of defense but that is just me . Also the cops arrested both because everyone was involved ...AND they were all 18! that is legally an adult so yes she would have gotten arrested for being in a fight as well..Also if the footage shows your Niece striking out at the other two assault charges can be pressed on her as well....Me? I would drop everything and march up to the police station and file a report ...what you could also do is have your Niece go file a restraining order against these girls ..especially if she has to go to school with them.. And yes the other girls probably had bruises or markings as well..our justice system is not always fair but they try to be and in this situation where no one wins ...she should really go get medical assistance !!! if you have a doctors note under your belt that would be VERY use full in court !!! ...and get as much video footage as you can!!! goodluck
