4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal professional for any reason, you have to work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important methods to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All 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 punctually, each time. In fact, because you may need to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court which you 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 cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Can A Person Be Charged At Both The State And Federal Level For A Single Criminal Violation?
If A Person Commits A Crime Which Is A Violation Of State Law (Lets Say Aggravated Assault) Could He Also Be Charged In Federal Court For Something That Is Technically A Different Charge (Lets Say Domestic Assault By An Habitual Offender), Or Would That Be Covered Under Double Jeopardy?
Technically, yes, they can be charged at both levels, since both are sovereign entities. The Supreme Court has allowed both the Feds and the State to prosecute for the same action. So if you murder somebody, are tried at the State level, the Federal Government can still choose to prosecute you, regardless of the verdict, and Double Jeopardy does not apply.
However, the Federal Government almost never steps in, and usually delegates to the States if the State has Jurisdiction. There is a policy called the "Petite Policy", which come from a former US Attorney General, that is basically the written out policy of the US Justice Department that says the Fed. Government will generally stay away from double prosecution, unless the Federal Government has a substantial interest in the outcome, and the State trial left "justice unvindicated". Generally you will only see this type of double prosecution in policy brutality cases, generally against minorities, where Federal Interest is high and a racially based acquittal was reached by the jury.
It is very very rare that the Feds will seek to re-prosecute.
Court Ordered Grandparent Rights?
I Am Estranged From My Mother And Am Wondering If She Will Be Able To Go Through The Courts To See My Future Children. She Also Doesn'T Get Along With My Sister-In-Law And Has Told Me That If They Have A Baby And Don'T Let Her See It She Will Take Them To Court Because She Has A Right As A Grandparent. My Mother Has Been Mentally Abusive To Me My Entire Life; She Is Not A Good Person. Does Anyone Know If She Actually Can Force Us To Let Her See Our Children? We Live In Ny If It Matters....
No, you can prove her unfit.
The U.S. Supreme Court decision from 2000 does not have any impact on the grandparent visitation law of New York State. That case, Troxel v. Granville, involved a broad Washington State statute which permitted:
‘[a]ny person may petition the court for visitation rights at any time,’ and the courts may grant such visitation rights whenever ‘visitation may serve the best interest of the child.’ *** Once the visitation petition has been filed in court and the matter is placed before a judge, a parent’s decision that visitation would not be in the child’s best interest is accorded no deference.
In that case, the grandchildren’s surviving parent would allow visitation to the grandparents with the grandchildren, but for only one day per month. The grandparents petitioned for more time with the grandchildren, two overnight weekends per month and two weeks during the summers. The Court below ignored the fact that the parent of the children assented to visitation prior to the filing of the petition, and placed the burden on the parent to prove it would not be in the best interest of the children. The U.S. Supreme Court compared and contrasted the Washington State law to other State laws for grandparent visitation, which require the grandparent to first be denied visitation by the child’s custodian prior to being able to file such a petition, and which put the burden on the grandparent to show that it is in the child’s best interest, as does New York law. The U.S. Supreme Court, in its majority decision, criticized the Washington State’s Trial Court case as being nothing more than a simple disagreement between the judge and the parent.
Most importantly, the U.S. Supreme Court decision was a very narrow one and made clear:
Because we rest our decision on the sweeping breadth of § 26.10.160(3) and the application of that broad, unlimited power in this case, we do not consider the primary constitutional question passed on by the Washington Supreme Court - - whether the Due Process Clause requires all non-parental visitation statutes to include a showing of harm or potential harm to the child as a condition precedent to granting visitation. We do not, and need not, define today the precise scope of the parental due process right in the visitation context. In this respect, we agree with Justice Kennedy that the constitutionality of any standard for awarding visitation turns on the specific manner in which that standard is applied and that the constitutional protections in this area are best ‘elaborated with care.’ *** Because much state-court adjudication in this context occurs on a case-by-case basis, we would be hesitant to hold that specific non-parental visitation statutes violate the Due Process Clause as a per se matter.
Thus, the New York grandparent visitation statute and case law stands untouched by that decision, because it is: not over broad, as it is limited solely to biological grandparents; it is required to first show that the petitioning grandparent has standing; and only then is best interest of the child considered, and is to be put forth by the petitioning grandparent.
