4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need an attorney at all, you should work closely along with them so that you can win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're going to 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 - whatever information you're going to reveal in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - especially information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, whenever. The truth is, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so as to convince a legal court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Legal Question About Donations......?
Is It Legal For A Little Girl To Go Door To Door Selling Candy Bars And Ask For Donations So She Can Go On A Missions Trip With Her Church? The Church Isnt Involved With The Donations, Its Something She Wants To Do On Her Own. She Also Wants To Raise Money With A Bake Sale And Advertise It As Donations For Her Trip. Is This Ok?
It's perfectly legal for anybody to sell anything (well, anything that isn't itself illegal) door to door in most places. I'd probably recommend against the candy-bar idea, but that's more for practical reasons than legal ones (buying from a store means you'll not be making much per bar, and any unsold bars will eat into her profits). The bake sale (even a door-to-door bakesale!) idea is great though.
The only thing I'd caution is with regards to asking for donations. To some people, a donation is a very specific term, generally associated with a non-profit organisation or a charity, and after giving the donation, a tax-receipt is generally issued. Obviously, your daughter isn't a registered charity, and won't be able to offer tax-receipts to people who are helping her out. To avoid any complications, it's probably best to make sure that people realise that the money they give her is for her, and not a donation to the church itself.
As an aside, if there are a number of children from the church who will all be trying to raise money for the trip, you might all want to pool together for the fund-raising effort. If you do that, you can probably work out a deal with those candy and chocolate fund-raising companies that schools often work with, and raise more money that way than by buying the candy-bars from stores.
How Confidential Are Free Consultations With Lawyers?
Many Lawyers Can Give Half Hour Free Time -- All I Need.
The information exchanged by you and the lawyer in a prospective client relationship is privileged. Therefore, the lawyer cannot reveal any of the information that you give him, unless you somehow waive the privilege by going on Facebook and blabbing about it.
Attorney / Lawyer / Child Custody / Divorce?
A Family Member Is Going Through A Divorce, Papers Has Not Been File Yet? He Would Like To Know A Good Attorney Lawyer To Help Him. He Said That He Only Makes $11,000.00 Or Less A Year And Has Children. He Said That His Wife Kick Him Out & Put His Stuff On The Street. He Lives In Indianapolis, Indiana; Does Anyone Know Of Any Good Lawyer. He Said He Tried Aid But His Wife Made To Much Money, So They Are Not Willing To Help Him. I Feel He Need To Act Now Before Time Gets Away? Thanks To All That Can Help?
He is going to have to contact the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society.
If his wife kicked him out of the house and he has no place to live, then he has a right to spousal support if his wife makes more money than he does.
I don't think they can hold his wife making more money than he does against him, if that money is not at his disposal.
What I do think happened, is he tried to call them and failed to make an appointment. They will not consult over the phone. You have to go in after making an appointment.
The only other thing he can do is find a family law clinic in the area under the ProBono resources listed here:
After that he's just going to have to go through the yellow pages until he finds the right lawyer. A lot of times courts will award the dependent spouse attorney's fees up front.
Finally, he could possibly have his wife arrested for unlawfully evicting him from the home and putting his stuff out on the streets. Most landlords would go to jail for that. That presumes of course there was no court order giving the wife possession of the marital home.
What Is The Legal Department/Law Firm Employee Structure For Non Attorneys?
I'M A Career Changer And I Want To Know If There Is Possibility For Progression/Career Advancement If You Are Not An Attorney And Work In Legal Departments/Law Firms.
There isn't any. Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, 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 STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. 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 - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>BACHELORS<< 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 (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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 #1 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< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites: http://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.c...
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**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 future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several legal professionals from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing employed legal professionals is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know an employed legal professional, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many legal professionals. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities.
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.
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.

I Got Acrylic Nails For My School Ball But They Are Very Botched. Another Nail Technition Said It Looked Like Theyd Been Done Bya Learner. I Dont Think The Girl Who Did Them Wqs A Learner But If She Was I Wasnt Told.
Im In Perth Australia By The Way.
The Sign On Their Counter Said &Quot;If Your Not Satisfied Your Service Is Free&Quot;
Is It My Legal Right To Go In There And Ask For A Refund And For Them To Remove The Nails?
You probably could, but they would be doing it for customer service reasons, not legal reasons. Why didn't you voice your concerns as soon as they were done and have them corrected? Did you realize they were botched before you talked to the other nail technician, or was it just her opinion that made you feel this way?
Let me guess...this new nail technician is the one you are going to go to if you have your nails redone. Why would she ever have an ulterior motive to trash her competition?
EDIT: You can go back and ask for a refund, but since you did accept the work they have every right to deny it. Next time, if someone does a job you aren't satisfied with make them redo it right then and there - before you pay. You are the customer and you are paying for a service - it's your right.
So what if she is large / intimidating / rude? What is she going to do - hit you? If she won't fix it and tells you that she did a good job, tell her she didn't do good enough and you won't pay for it. Never pay for something you aren't happy with - if you are worried about her, ask for another technician to correct them.
Is There Any Lawyers That Help You Get Your Unpaid Wages From An Employer? If So, Where? Im Located In Dallas?
I Haven'T Been Paid For My Hours Worked At A Previous Employer(A Restaurant In Plano, Tx) And Have Been Trying To Get Paid For So Long Now. They Owe Me Quite A Bit Of Money. I Wouldn'T Be Doing This If It Wasn'T Worth Going After. I Need Someone That Can Help Me Get The Money They Owe Me. Im Frustrated And Fed Up With How Illegal These People Are Being And Not Paying The Money They Owe.
(sigh). A lawyer will cost you FAR more than the amount of your back wages. Try small claims court.
