4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a lawyer for any excuse, you have to work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're planning to reveal in their mind. Privilege means everything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, every time. Actually, because you may want to discuss last minute details or even be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important so as to convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Can You Get Paid For A Slip And Fall?
Walking In Best Buy Store And Fell On Greasy Substance Injured My Low Back And Ankles
Yes you can definitely get paid for a slip and fall case at Best Buy. If you obtain an attorney and have surgery, the company I'm affiliated with Orchard Legal Funding may be able to advance you funds while you wait for your case to settle. I hope you filed an incident report with Best Buy and have a copy of it as well. Good luck with your case.
How Much Do Attorneys At Law Make Every Year?
I'm Majoring In Law Currently Hoping To Become An Attorney At Law.
I'd To Know The Avg Salary A Lawyer Makes.
As you learn more about the law, you will realize that every answer "depends." Depends on the jurisdiction, depends on where you went to school, depends on your rank at school, depends on what extra activities you engaged in at school (i.e. moot court, law review, etc.), depends on your outside experience, depends on who you know, etc.
If your image of a lawyer is wealth, your wrong. most lawyers spend 80 hours a week+ in offices and walk away with $65 grand a year, not much. If you attend a top-notch school, finish in the top 15% of your class, are a member of moot court and law review, then you can expect to make $130K a year, working 80 hours a week for a large firm.
If you want to go solo, good luck. They work 2x harder. One of the hardest obstacles is setting up your own practice. It costs a lot of money in overhead and retaining new clients is extremely difficult, especially given the competitiveness of law.
You need to specialize, and that takes many years of hard work and experience. A lot of people go to law school expecting a huge paycheck when they get out. Truth is, I was making more money as a waiter before I went to law school, working 1/4 of the time, as I am now as a first year graduate. A nice paycheck can be obtained, but you need to be the best of the best, so-to-speak (Ivy league, top 10%).
Most importantly, don't go into law if all you want to do is to make money. you will be very disappointed and you will hate the work. most people go to law school expecting to make money. When they get out, they either don't make money and hate the work, or they make a liitle money and hate the work. 9 out of 10 lawyers discontiue practicing law within 10 years--something to consider. Harsh reality, but very much the truth.
Have You Ever Used Prepaid Legal Services? What Was Your Experience. ?
A Friend Of Mine Is Dealing With A Child Custody Issue And Considering Using Prepaid Legal Because They Can'T Afford The Retainer To Hire A Lawyer. I'M Just Curious If Anyone Has Ever Used These Services And Can Relate Their Experience.
I never used prepaid legal services because I recognized early on that the financial model is exactly the same as an early HMO. Experience with the HMO showed that when services were flat-rate and communal, the organization developed a culture of trying to get you in and out the door by expending the least amount of effort possible on your problem. Unless your prepaid legal service plan includes a financial incentive for them to work harder on cases that are non-trivial, you should adjust your expectations accordingly.

I Have A Difficult Child Support Case That I Need Legal Representation In Court. Instead Of The Typical Absenteee Dad Case Its The Absentee Mom Case.But Im The Typcial Absentee Mom Either.So If Anyone Can Help I Thank You In Advance
In most states Legal Aid is available for lower income parents who have small children and need a divorce, but it is based on your income so you may or may not qualify. If not, there aren't too many Attorneys that want to work pro bono cases especially in Family Law. You can always pull out the phone book and start calling to ask. Also contact your local welfare or Child protective services office and they may be able to recommend someone. Hope this helps....Good Luck =)
Recipt Check After Checkout - Legal? My Rights?
I Wanted To Find Out What My Rights Are As A Consumer When It Comes To The Recipt Checks That Go On At Locations Like 'Sams Club, Wal-Mar, Bestbuy, And Cosco' When I Exit The Store.
I Would Like To Know If I Have The Right To Refuse The Person That Will Not Let Me Exit Until They Check Off My Receipt. Is There Anything Thats Related To The Concept &Quot; That Upon Completing A 'Trade' The Items Traded Are Now Legally Owned By The Receiver Of Items Received In The Trade&Quot; And Does That Now Give Me Rights Similar To The Forth Amendment Where I Can Refuse A Search?
Interesting. This is a case where the rights of two people or entities overlap, and therefore a court would probably grant that some reasonable compromise is necessary. You have the right to carry on your business without unreasonable interuptions and intrusions on your person and property.
The store, by contrast, has the right to take reasonable precautions to insure the safety and security of their merchandise.
It is unlikely that any court would rule that the practice of asking customers to produce a receipt is an unreasonably invasive practice, and could conceivably rule that the receipt check is part of the entire check-out process. This is especially true in membership clubs like Sams, where you have to sign a membership agreement. Furthermore, the store has the right (depending on the state) to detain people it has probable cause to believe may be attempting to committ theft. Refusing to show your receipt would raise the suspicion that you may be attempting to committ theft, and they might be within their rights to hold you until the situation can be sorted out ("sirbobby's" claim that they cannot hold you is premised on the idea that they could not sucessfully prosecute you for attempted larceny. That much is obvious, but beside the point).
In reality, it is likely that they would not attempt to physically stop you from leaving, with the associated legal liabilities.
However, regardless of what your rights in this case may or may nor be, you must remember that trade is inherantly a voluntary process by law. You can choose not to shop at a given merchant, and by the same token, that merchant can refuse to sell their wares to you. A store may not, of course, discriminate against you on the basis of your race, religion, sex, etc, but outside of that they are perfectly free to say, "We would rather that you do not return to this store."
Therefore, even if we do assume that you have the perfect right not to show your receipt, the store also has the perfect right not to sell to you. Therefore, if you didn't show your receipt, there is not much they can do about it, but the most likely result is that they would politely ask you not to return to their store. The store *is* private property, and yes, they can do that. Furthermore, if they have asked you to stay off of their private property, they can even call the police and have you thrown out if you come back.
All in all, the question of whether you have the right not to show the receipt is a moot point, since the store has an equally valid right not to sell to you in the future.
