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.

Where Can I Find A Affordable Lawyer?
My Friend Is In Jail And His Public Defender Is Nothing Its Like She Don't Even Care. I Need A Lawyer That Will Work With The Price With Me Because My Funds Are Limited. The Judge Is Giving Him Time To Get A Lawyer And I Cant Find Anybody That Will Accept Anything Less Then $500. I Don't Know What To Do. I Mean He's Gonna Pay Me Back When He Gets Out, I Just Wish That I Can Find Somebody That Can Get Him Out. If Anybody That Knows A Lawyer That Will Accept $200-300 Up Front Instead Of $500. I Even Called A Lawyer That Would Only Accept $750. If Anybody Knows Of Any Lawyers In Louisville, Ky Please Let Me Know.
The term "affordable attorney" is an oxymoron. If you join one of the pre-paid legal services (I think Caldwell Legal runs about $14/mo.) they provide legal services at discounted rates for members. Maybe join a service on his behalf and ask them. Not sure if it will work. It's just a thought.
(I am in no way affiliated with any pre-paid legal service plan)

THE LAWYER AND THE DUCK
A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural Tennessee. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.
The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this
field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."
The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."
The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the United States and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own.
The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Tennessee . We settle small disagreements like this; with the "Three Kick Rule."
The lawyer asked, "What is the Three Kick Rule?"
The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up."
The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.
The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney.
His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees.
His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth.
The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.
The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet.
Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old fart. Now it's my turn."
[You'll love this part.............
The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck.
THE BLONDE AND THE LAWYER
A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa."
Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.
The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00."
This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.
The lawyer asks the first question.
"What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"
The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands
it to the lawyer.
"Okay" says the lawyer, "your turn."
She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"
The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with
his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer.
Frustrated, he sends e-mail to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00.
The blonde says, "Thank you", and turns back to get some more sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"
Without a word the blonde shrugs, reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
What Impact Has Technology Had On Legal Research?
What Impact Has Modern Technology Such As Computers, The Internet, Email And Online Databases Had On The Paralegal Profession? In Your Opinion, Have These Technological Advances Been Positive Or Negative? What Tasks Do Paralegals Perform Using Computers? What Are The Advantages Of Computer Assisted Legal Research (Calr) Over Traditional Methods (Going To A Law Library To Locate Cases And Statutes In Books And Other Printed Materials, Going To The Courthouse To File Pleadings In Person Rather Than Filing Them Electronically, Etc.)?
Huge leap in efficiency.
Research that used to take hours or days to do using books and indexes can now be done in minutes from any computer terminal. And with rapid updating, you can have new cases that came out days or weeks ago, rather than waiting months for pocket-parts.
Electronic filing saves time and gas. And electronic copies allow for broader distribution and more permanent records without wasting paper.
Those are just a few of the many benefits. The only downside is that, like all forms of automation, it cuts down on human interaction. Rather than hanging out in the law library and at least seeing other people, we now sit behind computer screens.
But, for the benefits gained, our lack of social interaction in other contexts is no excuse.
Seeking A Workers Comp / Labor Attorney?
In Las Vegas? Clark County.
In all 50 states, there is no reason to hire a workers compensation attorney unless:
1. you were denied workers compensation and you think it should have been approved
2. you were approved for workers comp but you aren't getting the treatment you think you should be.
The amount you get for workers comp is based on a formula based on your injury and permanent disability rating. You don't get extra money for paying an attorney, that comes out of you pocket.

What Kind Of Lawyer Do I Need?
Okay My Life Has Pretty Much Gone Down The Drain...In 2004 My Kids Were Taken From Me It Was A Joke!!! Went Broke Due To Legal Fees...Couldn'T Afford An Appeal.
Right After That In 2006 I Got Accused Of Tampering W/Govt Records And Yes, You Guessed It...Got Reamed By A Public Defender Who Sold Me Down The River And I Wound Up Getting A Bad Bad Deal...8 Years Of Prison. Two And A Half Of Which I Served. It Ruined My Career As A Nurse. I Am Lucky To Have A Halfway Decent Job Teaching As No One Would Hire Me To Answer Phones Even When I First Got Out. Now, I Really Want To Put My Life Back Together And Either Try To Get Back To Nursing Or Start A Business As A Medical Biller. Of Course I Want To Know Of Any Way I Might Be Able To Either Have My Sentence Overturned Or At The Very Least Commuted (Convicted In 2006) And Also I Would Have To Go Plead My Case With State Board And After That Try To Get Dept. Of Health And Human Services To Take Me Off Of Medicare Exclusion.
Where To Start??? Does Anyone Know Of Any Good Lawyers In Texas That May Be Able To Help Or At Least Advise?
In almost every state there are lawyer referral services. You should contact your state bar association and see if they can help give you a list of attorneys who handle this type of case. Then pick one that is reasonable and appears to know what he or she is talking about.
