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.

Anyone Know Discrimination Lawyers In Ohio?
I Am Looking For A Discrimination Lawyer In Ohio. Hopefully Close To The Bucyrus, Ohio Area. I Heard There Are Lawyers For Discrimination That You Don'T Have To Get Paid Until The Defendant Does. I Was Hoping Someone Would Have Some Informationf On Lawyers Like That. Please Help Me This Is An Emergancy. Thank You
Do google search for discrimination lawyers, bucyrus ohio and you find quite a few. Or you could call the bar association and ask for names.
What you are talking about are lawyers who take cases on "contingency", meaning if you win, both of you get paid and if you lose, no one gets paid. These are usually with personal injury cases.
But, be advised, you will need to talk to a lawyer in person to see if your case is valid or not. Also, you will need to find out if they do contingency or if you will have to pay them a retainer.
Mother-In-Law Issues, Need Some Advice?
When I Was 15 Yrs Old I Started A Relationship With Who Is Now My Husband. Its Been 8 Yrs And We'Re Going Strong. 7 Yrs Ago When I Was 16, We Got In An Arguement With My Hubby'S Mother And Her Boyfriend (They Are Still Together Also) We Were Told Never To Speak To Them Again. And To Act Like They Were Dead. We'Ve Tried Rekindling The Relationship But They Wanted Nothing To Do With Us. My Hubby Has Two Brothers Who Get Along With Thier Mother, One Is Married One Has A Girlfriend. The Two (Wife - Girlfriend) Get Along Very Well With Her And Have Come To Me Asking Me Questions About The Arguement, And Trying To Get Information From Me, So They Can Bring It Back To Her. Neither Of The Brothers And Their Spouses Are Very Close To Us Anymore. But One Ended Up Talking My Hubby Into Calling His Mom, Which He Did, And Now Things Are Like Nothing Ever Happened. But She Still Won'T Talk To Me. I'Ve Sent Her An Email Asking If She Wanted To Speak To Me Or If She Just Wanted To Stay In Contact With Her Son. There Was No Response. I Don'T Know What To Do About This. Because It Seems Like Everything Is Turning Out To Be My Fault, (Which It Wasn'T) And No One In His Family Wants Anything To Do With Me But Will Speak To My Hubby. She Has Sent My Hubby Emails Stating Very Clearly That She Wants To Meet With Him And Only Him. Have Any Advice. Thank You In Advance.
My advice is that you and your hubby sit down and have a long good chat. I understand that he would want a relationship with his mother but it will not work without you being involved too. It does not mean that you and her have to be best buddy's but excluding you is not acceptable. It comes down to this...your husband needs to stay on your side. He needs to nicely but firmly let his mother know that you are his wife and family and that you come first. That he wants a relationship with her but she is going to need to accept that you are his wife and that you must not be excluded. He can explain it does not mean she needs to call and chat with you on the phone about how her day was or anything like that. Bottom line he needs to get across is that he is a package deal. And if she can not be nice to you then he will not be a part of it. I know it seems firm but I believe it is the only way things will work out. Otherwise his family will start causing problems with your marriage if only on a subconscious level, it will start to happen. I have seen these situation happen many times. In marriages when the husband makes sure it is clear that the wife is first, the marriages last and in the ones where he lets the mother have this control they end. (It is control in that she is controlling how and when she sees him and it all revolves around excluding you).
Important point is that it has to be your husband who talks to her about this, not you. If you were to say the same thing it will look like you are bossing your husband around and then backfire on you. And because he is the son he needs to do it. Of course you have to talk together first and make sure you are both on the same page. I hope that he chooses you. Good-luck.
Do I Need A Disability Lawyer?
I Went To See My Orthopedic Dr. And He Put Me On Restrictions. My Boss Told Me The Next Day When I Was Supposed To Work That I Couldn'T Work Anymore And I Had To Take A Fmla. They Denied My Claim. They Said The Dr. Did Not Completely Fill Out The Paperwork. The Dr. Could Not Fill Out All Of The Paperwork Since He Can Not Do Anything Further For Me. I Am Currently Waiting To See A Rhumyetologist To Find Out What Is Wrong With Me. I Was Told By My Boss That I Would Have To Resign If I Could Not Perform My Job Duties. I Have Been Off Of Work For Three Weeks With No Pay And Rent Is Going To Be Due. I Need Some Advice On What Next. I Applied For Unemployment Today But Was Wondering If I Should Get A Disability Lawyer?
You, go talk to a lawyer, this is BS, we have laws for this, do not resign do not sign anything. also you can`t draw unemployment because your disabled, sign up for disability payments, and go to your nearest SRS office for help, you can get a food card, help with housing from HUD, and medicaid to help with doctor bills. your company is just trying to get you to walk off the job, they should change your job duties so you can keep working or put you on disability leave. Hey! good luck and God bless you, I hope you get well, and do ok.

The minimum amount for SS is 674....as long as you are paying for housing (even to a friend or relative, you should get your SSDI supplemented by SSI to be 674, plus a state supplement if there is one.
on SSD, there is a dependent benefit....that amount should be split between the kids..
did you apply for food stamps? utility assistance? these add to you total income..you could get a couple hundred for food and 50-100 for utilities..or more
you need to be on the section 8 housing list--if its even open
have you checked with the VA, don't they at least have a social worker to help you
legal aid may help--but they barely pay attention most of the time

Personal Injury Settlement Recieved As A Minor?
I'M Currently 17 And A Senior In Highschool. My Birthday Is In A Week And I Will Obviously Be Turning 18. When I Was About 8 Years Old I Was In A Car Accident Leaving Me To Suffer With 4 Herniated Discs In My Back. My Mother Filed Suit Against The Middle Aged Male That Hit Us From Behind. My Mother Decided To Keep The Exact Amount Of Money I Was Compensated A Secret From Me All These Years. I Get Along Very Well With My Mother So I'M Assuming She Didn'T Tell Me Because She Wanted Me To Do Well In School And Not Have The Mind-Set Of Relying On The Amount Of Money To Get Me Through Life Instead Of A Good Education.
Due To The Fact That I'M Turning 18 In A Week, I Started To Wonder How Much Money I Was Actually Compensated. So, I Decided To Do My Own Research On The Internet. After Hours Of Searching, I Finally Found The Court Case File And Newspaper Articles. Supposedly I Received $250,000 As A Result Of The Accident.
I Know My Mother Well Enough To Assume That She Would Not Place The Total Amount Of Money In A Simple Savings Account. I Also Know That She Wouldn'T In Any Way Invest All Of It In The Same Place.
Basically My Question Simply Is:
How Do I Find Out For A Fact How Much Money I Recieved? The Money Is Probably Split Up Into Various Investments And More Than Likely It Is Not All In The Same Place. How Do I Find Out Where All My Money Is And Find Out The Numerous Investments That The Money As A Whole Is Divided Up Into? Who Would I Consider Contacting To Find Out All This Information?
Please Do Not Answer With The Following Statements:
1) &Quot;Set Up A Consultation With An Attorney&Quot; *[I Do Not Want To Pay An Attorney To Only Find Out That I Have Approxmently $15,000]
2)&Quot; Just Ask Your Mother, She Will Tell You&Quot;.
*[No Matter What The Situation Is, My Mother Will Not Tell Me The Exact Amount Of Money In Fear That I Will Drop Out Of School And Give Up On College.
Thank You For Your Help And Understanding!
If your mother will not tell you the specifics then when you turn 18 you may actually need to consult an attorney to find out all the details...
Court records can show the amount awarded to you but many times will not show how the money was to be distributed to you.
In many states when a minor is awarded a settlement and it involves that settlement being paid by an insurance company(such as for auto accidents) it is often placed in to an Annuity and divided into payments that begin when the minor turns 18 years old. The Payments can be made annually or they can be large amounts paid at age 18 then again at age 21 and the final full payment at age 24 depending on what the Attorney and the insurance company set up the payments as.
Once you turn 18 you may be able to contact the Attorney that handled the case and find out all the information since the case does pertain to you.
