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.

I Am Looking For Perferably An Attorney That Can Give Me Some Legal Advice In Regards To Illegal Search Laws?
On 4-5-08 Probation And Parole Came To My Place Of Employment Took Me To My House, Did Not Identify Themselves To Anyone But Myself,Did Not Show A Warrant, And Began Searching. They Specificly Said That They Were There Because They Had Gotten Phone Calls That We Had Illegal Drugs. They Questioned Me Before I Had Been Read My Miranda Rights. They Went Right To Our Bedroom And Began Their Search. They Tried To Question Our 14 Yr. Old Son Without Our Permission.They Asked About My Husbands Safe And I Told Them It Was Not Mine And I Didn'T Even Know The Code To Open It. They Searched Areas That They Knew Were Not Mine. Nobody Supervised The Search They Made Me And My Husband Stay At The Other End Of The Trailer. They Brought 2 Different Agencies With Them, The Sherriffs Office And The Missouri River Drug Task Force And None Of Them Presented Any Type Of Warrant.
Any And All Replys Acknowledgeable And Taken Seriously. Any Answers Are To Have The Same Respect.(Can Give Lots More Info ).
The answers so far are assuming you are on probation/parole. If this is true, and they did, in fact, receive phone calls saying you were involved in narcotics, you are pretty much SOL.
If you're not on probation/parole, then they conducted an illegal search. Anything they found is inadmissible against you, and you may even have cause for a civil suit against the City/County.
When you are on probation/parole, you agree to be subject to search and seizure by law enforcement at any time without a warrant or probable cause. This, in effect, amounts to a waiver of your 4th Amendment rights (although I personally disagree, the word "waiver" has been used in case law).
Therefore, they need no warrant. However, this does not remove all protection. I'm sure there is some case law in your state that says that searches of probationers/parolees cannot be "arbitrary or harrassing" (or similar language). If there were no phone calls, the search may be invalid.
Your story, unfortunately, does not necessarily require that they Mirandize you either. A Miranda reading is not necessary until you are in custody.
"they made me and my husband stay at the other end of the trailer" - HAHA! But seriously, you're not really in custody at this point.
You don't say if they found anything. If they didn't find anything, this isn't really an issue anyway.
How Does A Lawyer Determine If Someone Can Get Alimony Or Maintenance?
Was Married For 7 Years And I Found Out That My Spouse Was Cheating On Me.
The lawyer doesn't determine it. They are merely your representative as to the laws in your jurisdiction.
A judge will decide unless you opt for a mediator and can come to an agreement (also depending on where you live).
Do You Know The Whereabouts Of A Female Criminal Attorney Who Practiced Law In Arlington, Tx.?
Her Name Is Sandra Nohimeck. I Think I Have The Spelling Of Her Last Name Wrong, But It'S Close. Her Office, When I Knew Her Several Years Ago, Was On S. Collins St. In A Building Called Harrison Aviation Located At Arlington Municipal Airport. She Is Gone From There. Apparently She Has Joined A Law Firm, Probably Local, And Is Not Indepently Listed. I Tried Googling Her Name. Nothing. If You Know This Attorney'S Whereabouts, Pleas Answer...................Emergency!!!!!!!.......Thank You
I searched online and could find nothing without the correct spelling of the name. The correct spelling would definitely help. I would try the following: First, contact your local county bar association. http://www.arlingtonbarassociation.com/ If that doesn't help, I would contact the State of Texas Supreme Court Office of Attorney Registration http://www.supreme.courts.state.tx.us
If neither of those work and you still need to find her, you will have to get a little more creative. I would start by trying to get a forwarding address from her prior address.

Major For Law School?
I Am Planning To Go To The U.S For My Undergrad I Want To Major In Psychology....After That I Want To Attend The Best Law School & Become A Lawyer...Is Psychology A Good Major?I Hv Heard People Say That The Major Doesnt Matter But Still...
I am an associate at an AmLaw top ten firm.
Your question is complex. Why do you want to major in psychology? If it is because you are personally interested in it, and you might do something other than go to law school, then go for it. If there's a chance you might want to go into counseling or social work, there's no reason not to major in psych. You can still get into law school -- no law school will hold a non-law related major against you when considering you for admission.
But if you know you're going to law school, and you want to major in the discipline that will be most useful to you, there's truly only one answer to your question. Major in English. Learn to read (i.e., to comprehend and analyze what you are reading). Learn to write (i.e., persuasively, objectively, technically, analytically). Assuming you know how to read and write, learn to read and write better. Concentrate on becoming the best reader and writer you can. That is what will help you as a lawyer more than anything else you might learn as a college student.
If you have an aversion to an English major, then major in philosophy. Sounds "useless" to you? Wrong. Learn to think. Learn to argue. Learn to push contradictory ideas up against each other, and evaluate them. Learn the significance of the context to that evaluation.
Do not concentrate on trying to learn substantive material that you believe will help you in law school. It won't. You will be taught all the substantive material you need while you are in law school. You don't need to understand "political science" to succeed in law school (or as a lawyer); you don't need to know a lot of "history" to succeed in law school (or as a lawyer); you don't need even need to know a lot of LAW to succeed in law school (or as a lawyer). Law school will give you what you need in those respects and, where it does not, you will gather it on your own in your practice of the law.
What you need to know before you show up at law school is how to read, write, and think. In law school, you will be taught to read, write, and think like a lawyer. You can always minor in psych.
This answer is about what you need to succeed in law school, not about what you need to gain admission. As to the latter, your major is unimportant. Approximately 90% of the admissions decision for all the top law schools is a formulaic weighted analysis of your undergraduate GPA combined with your LSAT score.
Corporate Law Firm Internship?
Just Thought That I Would Reach Out More Widely Than Just To My Local Law Firms And Ask If Anyone Works In A Large Corporate Law Firm Or Knows A Family Member Who Does Who Would Be Willing To Take In A 3Rd Year Honors Law Student For An Internship.
It depends on your grades. If you don't have straight A's, forget about getting a job as a lawyer.
