4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a legal representative for any reason, you must work closely with them to be able to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they need to help them to win. 3. Arrive Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important in order to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Need Advice About Law Please?
My Husband Passed Away Almost One Year Ago. I Have Two Years Old Daughter. I Have A House. My Husband Bought The House Almost 2 Years Ago. The House Is Under My Husband Name. How I Can Transfer The House My Name? Please , I Meed Advice
The law and procedure varies from state to state. Also, it's important to use very specific words when describing things. You say you have "a" house, and your husband bought "the" house. It may sound stupid, but what house did your husband buy? Yours? Did he buy the whole thing or just half of it? I'm sure this is stressful and exhausting, but it's important to be as precise as you can. Otherwise, whoever is helping you may get the facts wrong.
Find a legal aid clinic in your area. If you need help finding one, contact your county's Bar Association and tell them you need "pro bono" or "low bono" help with a probate issue on a house. They can hook you up with someone.
I Hired The Law Firm Of Willy And Nilly, But They Seem Disorganized And Haphazard.?
Should I Hire Another Law Firm?
I would if I were you. You can try my law firm of Yin & Yang. They are very in sync with each other. I wouldn't recommend my mother's law firm of Back & Forth as she just gets the run around from them. And definitely stay away from The Law Firm of Bonnie & Clyde because I've heard they'll rob you blind. Don't go near the firm Gin & Tonic as they are about to be disbarred for problems with drinking. Another good firm is Hunky & Dory...usually things turn out just fine with them. My neighbor should have gone with them. He used the firm of Mumbo & Jumbo and couldn't understand a word they said.
Power Of Attorney?
How Do I Cancel A Power Of Attorney Once I Have S9igned It?
Post a letter to the attorney or attorneys you appointed informing them that you wish to cancel the power with immediate effect. Ask them to return the original and all copies of the power to you (so that these can be destroyed).
Some Questions About Lawsuits/Lawyers?
Let'S Say I Want To Sue Someone Because They Injured Me In A Car Accident. How Does A Lawyer Resolve This Case? It Doesn'T Always Go To Court, Right? How Is Any Case Resolved When It Doesn'T Go To Court? How Often Does It Go To Court?
My guess is about 10% of personal injury matters end up in Court. BUT, when you go to a law office for a personal injury case, the attorney will immediately start preparing the matter as if it IS going to go to Court. Because they don't know for sure. So they start preparing the documents, etc. as though the case will go to Court.
This is very similar to a chess game - but this "game" is played out by the insurance companies. I have seen MANY personal injury cases get settled the day before the matter was scheduled for Court. It is usually resolved by the attorneys playing out their chess moves.
I assure you, if I was injured in a motor vehicle accident, I would get an attorney to settle my case. But, then, I work for attorneys that do Personal Injury matters - and I know how hard they work.
One thing I want to make you aware of: When someone has been involved in a motor vehicle accident, a "clock" starts ticking. If you wait too long, nothing will be able to be done for you. My suggestion is to call a lawyer asap.
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 Personal Injury matters. (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.)
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?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
And be patient - personal injury cases can take 1 - 2 years sometimes.
Good luck to you.

Personal Injury: A Sham On Society Or Something Else?
I Participated In A Mock Negotiation In A Law School Exercise. My Client Was A School Board. The Plaintiff Was A School Child Who Was Injured While On School Property. The Case Law I Found Suggested That Unintentional Acts By The School Board In The Ordinary Course Of Conducting Facilities Does Not Become Liable For Student Injuries. There Is A Lot Of Case Law On Governmental Immunity And Then Even More Case Law Specifically Addressing A School'S Liability. All Of The Law Suggests That Students Are In A Position Of Caveat: Student Beware.
My Classmates Disagreed With The Policy Even Though The Law Supports My Position, Without Question. I Found One Case Where A Child Chopped His Hand Off In A Shop-Class Machine, And The School Was Found To Not Be Liable For Anything.
I Think The Policy Is A Good One. Schools Are Not Run For Profit And The Students And Parents Have As Much Of A Duty To Prevent The Children From Being Injured As The Teachers, Staff And Faculty Do. Do You Agree?
In general, I believe that adults should be held responsible for their own actions. But when adults or institutions hurt an adult through negligence or worse, this principle goes for both parties: the persons or institutions inflicting harm should be responsible for their acts.
But, you're talking about children. In our society we do not hold children (and mentally or physically impaired adults) to the same standards as we hold adults. The standard of care required of adults and institutions to whom we entrust our children are -- and should be -- far stricter in cases of real negligence.
Of course, our laws do sometimes go overboard in awarding personal injury awards and punitive damages. Especially in the cased of punitive damages, I believe there need to be far lower limits than apply currently.
Why Are Drunk Driving Laws So Lenient?
Ok So I Live In Michigan. I Read In The News An Article About A Guy Who Isnt Even 21 Years Old (But Over 18) Who Got His Third Conviction For Drinking And Driving And Didnt Even Serve Any Jail Time? Is Our Justice System Just All Talk When It Comes To The Evils Of Drinking+Driving Or What?
What Kinda Punishment Would Be Expected Of Someone Who Does This? Im Not Sure Exactly What Happened To Him.
Drunk Driving laws shouldnt exist at all...
It is already illegal to negligently kill someone with a vehicle..we don't need another law to cover someone who MAY do this..
Maybe we need laws against DWT, driving while tired...
