4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a legal professional at all, you should work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Listed here are four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most especially 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 all the data they need to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each and every time. In fact, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with just about any crime, it's important to be able to convince the court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

What Is The Exact Phrasing Of The Law Of &Quot;Finders Keepers&Quot;?
I Am Preparing For My Court Case Next Monday And Think This Piece Of Information Could Be Crucial To My Case. Its A Long Case So I'Ll Give You The Short And Sweet Version:
1) I Found A Small Black Dog In My Backyard.
2) My Neighbor Seems To Think It Belongs To Him.
3) He Claims It Answers To The Name &Quot;Shadow,&Quot; But After Numerous Tests, I Disagree. *I'M Planning On Doing The Test In Court To Wow The Jury*
4) Also If The Dog Happened To Be His At One Point In Time, By The Law Of Finders Keepers, It Is Now Mine.
5) The Neighbor Has A Wife And Two Small Kids, So I Think He Would Be Too Busy To Adequately Take Care Of The Dog.
So As You Can See I'Ve Got A Pretty Solid Case Here, But I Really Want To Drive It Home With The Exact Legal Definition Of Finders Keepers, Which Has Been Hard To Find. Any Lawyers Or Law And Order Buffs Out There?
Wish Me Luck.
I always thought it was called "Stealing By Finding".
Probate Attorneys In New York
How Can I Find A Probate Attorney That Either Works On Contingency, Offers A Payment Plan Or Can Request The Other Party To Pay The Attorney Fees And Court Costs.
What type of probate matter is this? If you are looking for a probate attorney, it is unlikely you will find one that will work on a contingency basis unless you are expecting to receive a substantial sum of money if they are successful. And even then it is unlikely because probate matters such as contesting wills are very difficult cases to win.
Many attorneys will allow you to pay the fees over time, as long as you pay the "hard costs" (meaning money they have to put out up front) as they are incurred. The only way to find this out is to ask them. They should also give you a consultation for no charge. This is where they review the facts of your case and give you an opinion of the likelihood of success and tell you whether they are willing to represent you.
If you win, there is a possibility that the opposing party could be required to pay attorneys fees or at least costs, but again, this is probate court and it is much different than a regular lawsuit. An opposing party who wins is not going to volunteer to pay your fees and costs.
You don't say WHERE in new York you are located so folks probably cannot give you a referral until they know that.

Need Real Estate Lawyers Help!!!?
My Ex Husband And I Bought A Home In 2009. Shortly After, We Divorced And Neither One Of Us Were Sure We Could Afford The House, We Were Young. His Aunt And Uncle Decided They Would Move In And Take Over The Payments Until They Could Get A Loan To Buy The House. The Uncle Had Filed Bankruptcy And Lost Their Home And The Aunt Is A Stay At Home Mother. The Uncle Wrote Up A Contract And All 4 Of Us Signed It. It Was Never Notarized Or Nor Was An Attorney Present. Since Then, They Haven'T Been Able To Get A Loan. My Ex Husband And I Decided To Ask Them To Find Another Place And I Would Move Into The House And Make The Payments. Was The Contract Legal And Do I Have A Right To Move Back Into The House? Also, They Missed A Payment In November And It Affected Our Credit. The Contract Also Says They Will Pay More Then The Monthly Payment Amount Of $600 A Month, But They Have Just Been Paying $580 Which Is The Minimum Monthly Payment.
You don't say what state/country you are in -- each jurisdiction has different rules for real estate contracts, so without consulting with a qualified local real estate attorney you aren't going to get a reliable answer here -- seek local help NOW to enforce what you can and get yourselves back on track here.
The bottom line is your contract MAY be enforceable, and it may be simply VOID, but it could be somewhere in the middle and there could be equitable issues that would make things difficult for you! Hire qualified local help!

WHAT country are you in?
In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take classes/seminars etc. to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with "school"!)
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
