4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want an attorney for any excuse, you should work closely with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Listed here are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're going to reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. The truth is, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with just about any crime, it's important to be able to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Suggestions For A Good Employment Law Attorney In Phoenix?
I Am Currently Out Of Work Due To A Mental Illness Which Has Been Magnified By How My Manager Treats Me. She Is A Trigger To My Episodes And Often Accuses Me Of Things I Have Not Done (Which Can Be Proven). She Called Me The Other Day, While I Am On Disability, To Tell Me That There Is A Rumor I Posted Something On Facebook About My Employer. (Which Is Also Not True And I Can Prove). 1. Can I File Any Charges For Harrassment Or Negligent Infliction Of Emotional Distress? 2. Is She Supposed To Be Calling Me While I Am Out? I Never Asked Her To Call (As She Is A Huge Reason I Am Not Able To Work In Those Conditions.) Thanks.
I Have Been Told To Consult With An Atty, So I Was Wondering If There Were Any Suggestions? Thanks Very Much.
Forget about going to HR - HR works for the COMPANY, not the employees. Don't even waste your time - forget about HR.
Do you have money to pay for a retainer?!?
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Employment Law for employEES. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
Go to the Court that is associated with your type of matter. For example, if your matter is regarding traffic law, go hang out by Traffic Court (also DUI Court). Ask attorneys that you might see there for their business cards - ask the clerks/secretaries there for names of lawyers. (DON'T make a nuisance of yourself there!)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
Look for another job - ASAP.
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
I Need To Find A Lawyer, By A Specific Name, In Alabama. Is There A Database Online That I Can Search?
My thought also was the Alabama Bar Association. Here is something else that might pan out. Try using "ZABASEARCH.COM". This is a free site that compiles data from public utility sites ( water, electricity, driver's licenses, tax bases, etc). Since you have the individual's name, type in what you know and hit the search bar. Anything in the base will come up and you can refine your search.
Best of luck and I hope this is useful to you
I Need Some Legal Advice For My Younger Brother In A Wheelchair.?
To Give Everyone Some Background, My Younger Brother, John, Was Born With A Form Of Muscular Dystrophy Called Spinal Muscular Atrophy Or Sma For Short. This Disease Causes The Muscles In The Body To Slowly Shut Down. From His Lower Jaw Down, His Muscles Over The Years Have Just Given Out On Him, To Lift A Plastic Fork Could Take As Long As 5-10 Minutes With Both Hands If Indeed Who Can Do It. He Sleeps On 3-4 Different Machines At Night To Help Him Breathe. He Also Has A Feeding Tube In His Stomach To Give Nourishment As He Doesn'T Have The Capability Of Not Chocking His Own Saliva, Let Alone Eating. He Has Been In A Wheelchair Since The Age Of 1.
Now 13, He Has The Muscular Capability Of A 2-3 Month Old Infant. However, This Hasn'T Stopped Him From Wanting To Be Like Everyone Else. After Being Home Schooled His Whole Life, He Decided Last Year That He Wanted To Be Able To Go To School With His Friends. So He Started School Several Months Ago, And Is Excelling, When He Is Able To Go.
From Day One, A Very Mean, Impatient, And Careless Bus Driver Has Hurt Him By Driving Carelessly, Harassed Him, Will Not Listen To Anything That He Says. He Is Very Fragile, And Is Not Able To Even Lift His Own Head Up If It Falls To The Side, Let Alone Try To Make Himself Safe With This Woman Driving. She Hits Curbs And Takes The Turns So Fast That His Head Is Constantly Falling From One Side To The Other. This Has Been Going On For Awhile Now, But The School Staff With The Exception Of Several Staff Members Who Work Closely With These Kids With The Special Needs Take The Drivers Side. When It Was Brought To Their Attention That There Were Problems, The Supervisor Called In The Driver, Who Denied Everything And Said My Brother Was Lying. The Staff Members Who Work With The Special Needs Children Have Heard The Same Report From Other Kids Of Being Yelled At, Harassed, And Physically Injured From Other Children, And Have At Times Witnessed It. Yet The School Will Not Assign Another Driver To The Route, And Defend This Woman By Saying She Is One Of Their Best Drivers.
We Have Been Taking Him Every Morning Since Then When We Can In Our Wheel Chair Van, But The Transmission Recently Has Gone Out And His Only Option Is To Ride The Bus.
My Mother Was Called To The School Today Because My Brother Was In Tears After Again Being Mistreated By This Woman. It Was Raining This Morning, So To Protect His Electric Wheelchair, My Mother Covered Him Up So Everything Would Stay Dry, As The Slightest Bit Of Water Will Cause His Chair To Malfunction. Once On The Bus, The Driver Removed The Cover Against My Brother'S Wishes, And Hit The Button To Turn Off His Chair Accidentally. When He Asked Her Turn It Back On, She Remarked &Quot;It Was Probably You That Did It, I Know Nothing About This Wheelchair.&Quot; When My Mother Got The School My Brother Was In Tears, He Was Soaking Wet From The Rain, As Was His Chair, And They Could Not Get Him Off The Bus.
Again, She Has Hurt Other Students, Both Verbally And Physically. Once We Get The New Van We Will Start Taking Him Again, But This Could Be Months. I Understand That All The Buses Have Cameras On Them, But They Have No Audio, And Many Times The Cameras Are Not Even On.
We Have Pleaded With The Transportation Supervisor, And Nothing Has Been Done. My Family Wants To Take Legal Action Against The Driver And The School. What Kind Of Lawyer Would We Seek? Also, What Sort Of Charges Can Be Brought Up On Them? Something Needs To Be Done Before My Brother, Or Someone Else'S Child Gets Seriously Injured.
Thank You In Advance For Your Help.
Have you gone to the superintendent of the school to complain and describe what has happened? Check with your state to see the wire tapping law and if you have one where one party to a conversation can tape or if you have to have permission of everyone taped. If it is enough for one party to agree, put a tape recorder on the student to go to school and arrange for a sibling or someone else to turn off the tape and to put it back on for the way home. That way it is recorded what happened on the bus. However, in some states recording others is illegal. Like in Ohio and Arkansas, one can tape, but in PA or FL they cannot tape any audio without getting permission. ou should be able to look up your state on the internet and run it down on wire tapping law. You need to check with your state.
Another thing you can do is ask that your student be assigned a personal aide. His handicap should require one. The federal handicap law and many state laws require that a student be permitted to attend school and must be provided with whatever is necessary to enable the student to be in the least restrictive environment.
You go to the superintendent (assuming you are in the US) and tell him/her what is happening and that the child has been placed at risk. Tell them that the law requires that the school provide what help he needs to be in the least restrictive environment and he does fine at school but he needs some help with the bus and with classes and needs a personal aide provided by the school. You should get one. If not, contact an attorney who works with special needs situations. It is a specialty. . You could contact the state bar association to ask about any experts in school law and in special needs law.
If your child required a private school with overnight care and even in another state, the state would be required to provide it if that is how he would have to learn. or that is my understanding of it. This is not a legal opinion. You need a licensed attorney in your state but not just any attorney is familiar with what you need so look for one well versed in special needs law. You might try the state teachers association -- like the "state" education association or "state" teachers association and ask them about their attorney and contact them to see about special needs attorneys. They work with school law every day and have a good handle on school law and the attorneys who work with law.
If you pesonally know a special needs teacher and can talk privately, they might be able to give you some advice (off the record). You should get a copy of the law about special needs. Americans with Disabilities Act, I believe is the federal law. The state law may be a section number. You may be able to find it on the internet by looking up special needs law.
Parents need to know their rights as they are the ones who need to stand up for the kids. Many teachers would love to help defend them and help but they can't as their jobs may be on the line so parents need to take this all the way to the school board if the superintendent doesn't do anything. And then they need to go to court to require proper placement and the help the student needs. if the child were hurt, you could sue the driver and the school (where the money is likely to be - though no public scohol has enough money).
Good luck to you. There is no way that this driver should be driving so fast as to take curbs, though it can happen. But should not be messing with the kid's wheelchair. There really should be an aide looking out for the child and it would assist the driver too. it is difficult for a driver to deal with driving a bus and taking care of a special needs child. it isn't fair to expect that and an aide should be there to assist. Think about a driver having to drive and pay attention to traffic and having 20 or more kids behind them and being responsible for what the kids do as well as driving and getting everyone on or off the bus, including handicapped students. Not fair for driver or the student. The charter schools and private schools take money away from public schools and make it more difficult to have the staff needed. Parents have to make sure the needs are met by the schools.
Good luck again.
