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.

To Avoid A Car Accident I Came Close To A Construction Worker...?
Ok So I Avoided A Accident With Another Car I Must Of Came Close To A Construction Workers Car So They Got In The Car And Followed Me And Got My Plate #
I Didn'T Know I Was Being Followed But A Another Car Saw It And Told Me 4-5 Lights Later.
I Was Shocked To Hear It.
Can Anything Happen I Don'T Know..
If So What Should I Do?
I'M Told Since The Police Didnt' See It And No One Got Hurt It Isn'T A Legal Matter.
I'M Worried The Last Thig I Need Is A Ticket Or A Fine As Money Isn'T Good Now.
Plus I Didnt' Have Any Choice I Am Luck I Didnt' Hit Anyone.
I Was Just Avoiding Another Accident.
Thanks For The Help!
Construction zones are a serious issue when you have workers so close to traffic going by at high speeds. It's sad when inconsiderate drivers take the workers lives into their own hands.
As for the offense...
Since an officer didn't see the offense...the officer can't issue the ticket. However, any person that witnessed the event CAN file a warrant for careless driving or reckless endangerment.
This means that person would have to take time to file a police report...then file a warrant for arrest. Many don't want to take the time to do this.
My opinion...but I think everybody was lucky this time and nothing more will occur.
Lesson learned........be more defensive when driving!
Is It Discrimination If I Will Never Date A Lawyer?
I Am Going For Business. I Met The Former President Of Hallmark And We Discussed About Business. He Told Me He Dislikes Lawyer And Would Never Allow A Lawyer To Lease Any Of His Properties. Dealing With Lawyers Recently I Must Agree With Him Because They Are Very Problematic, Greedy And Just Not My Type Of People.
It's not discrimination, per se.
But shutting yourself off to an entire group of people can make you miss out on a lot of good stuff (trust me, I know.) It also kind of depends on the type of lawyer. I used to work for a lawyer that dealt solely in Social Security disability cases. She was trying to get disability benefits for people who were too physically disabled to work - money they needed to pay their electric bills and feed their children. Did she do it for free? No. But she worked her butt of for her clients because they couldn't do it alone.
Corporate litigators, on the other hand...
And by the way, if you're going into business, you're going to meet a LOT of lawyers. Better get used to them.

Anyone Know Of An Exp Family Law Atty?
In Kansas Near Shawnee Mission/Gardner/Surrounding Areas...I Am In Fl But Having To File A Motion In Ks
I would ask a friend that had a good success in family law then get that lawyer for you.
I am sure the same applies in the US as in Canada, the office will have to have a license to practice in the state where you are filing.
You can also just pick up the phone and call any lawyer. They know each other in most cases and can at least refer you.
Will Going To Juvenile Court With A Lawyer Vs Going By Yourself Make A Big Difference?
Will Going To Juvenile Court With A Lawyer Vs Going By Yourself Make A Big Difference?
My Niece Had An Incident At Walmart For Stealing $43 Worth Of Make Up.
She Is 15 And Was Taken Into The Back Room Of Walmart And Was Put There Until Her Parents Came To Pick Her Up. Walmart Called An Officer In And Both Walmart And The Police Officer Took Down My Niece'S And Her Mother'S Information On A Little Note Pad And She Was Released To Her Mother. The Police Officer Also Told Her That She Should Be Expecting A Letter In The Mail With A Court Date.
She Will Be Going To Juvenile Court In Gwinnett County, Ga. Would Going In There With A Lawyer Vs Not Going With A Lawyer Make A Big Difference? This Is Her First Time Getting Into Trouble Like This And Gets Excellent Grades, She Just Gave Into Temptation And Is Currently Being Punished By Her Parents.
Also, The Police Officer Hasn'T Given Her Any Type Of Documentation Regarding The Incident, Or Any Name Tag. Does Anyone Know Why He Hasn'T Given Her Anything?
She wouldn't necessarily get a copy of the officer's report unless she asks for it.
I have to think a judge/DA has a usual course of action re first time teen shoplifting that is not likely to be affected by the intervention of a lawyer unless there is something unique about her situation.
Chances are it's going to involve some community service or mandatory class , a smallish fine or some combination thereof. It's not like they want to take a good student out of school to throw her into Bad Girl Boot Camp!
Btw, a "free consultation" with an attorney will simply be a sales pitch that may make them think she needs a lawyer whether it's true or not. Either make a deal to expressly pay for someone's time/advice or don't bother. Personally, I wouldn't bother. I doubt if her parents goal is to make certain this is not the least bit scary or unpleasant for her, do you think? She'll be fine.
What Does Legal Separation Mean?
Actually both answers are kind of wrong and kind of right. Legal separation starts when a Stipulation and Property Settlement Agreement is signed. This document outlines which bills each party is responsible for (so in some cases, the husband may agree to pay for bills in his wife's name in exchange for something). I've known of couples living together during a legal separation. Usually this happens when you have a financially troubled couple that cannot afford to have two separate residences. They essentially live in separate rooms and do not act as husband and wife. Depending on your state, there is case law that outlines what makes or breaks a separation. For Virginia, a man and woman can live together in a household, legally separated, so long as they do not introduce or extend the other as their spouse, do not have sexual contact, and make it absolutely clear that there is no chance of reconciliation.
Basically, if you are in this situation, I would pay for a consultation with an attorney in your state. This generally costs any where between 75 and 250 dollars depending on the atty. He'll spend one hour with you and can answer any questions you may have regarding what a legal separation means in your state specifically. You will also not be obligated to retain him at that time...so it's worth it.
