4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you need a legal professional for any reason, you have to work closely using them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal in their mind. Privilege means everything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - particularly information the other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they should help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each and every time. In reality, because you might need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Animal Adoption Laws?
Our Dog Opened The Back Door And Took Off About 2 Weeks Ago. She Is Not Known To Do This. We Have Been Searching For Her Extensively And Even Had A Company Send Flyers Out To All Animal Shelters, Vets, Etc.. Today We Walked Through A Shelter And Found Her (Imagine How Excited We Were!). But They Had Already Allowed Her To Be Adopted And Say She Is No Longer Our Dog. We Had Called This Place Numerous Times And Were Told She Wasn'T There And They Should Of Received The Flyer. We Now Have To File An Appeal, Has Anyone Been In This Situation Before? Did You Get Your Animal Back? Is Anyone Familar With The Laws Around This? She Is Our Baby And We Want To Bring Her Home.
you would have to adopt her back at that point
you didnt say what country you are in, but Canada, USA, and England are pretty much the same..
if you loved her you would have gone to the shelter immediately looking for her or would have at least called them to report her missing.. after 72 hours shelters have the legal right to consider themselves the owners of any pets found - this is also for the pets sake - if it were injured it would be suffering because they cannot even treat a pet..
here is a link about the 72 hour law
IF you had reported her missing earlier (to the shelter) - then you MIGHT have a case! assuming this is the shelter that would normally take in strays and is where lost pets should be reported in your area.
Is There A Cap On The Claim Of Healthcare Providers At 50% The Amount Recovered Via Personal Injury Settlement?
For Example, I Am Receiving A $48,000 Settlement To Cover The Healthcare Provided By My Insurance At The Time Of The Event As Well As For Pain And Suffering. According To The Party At Fault'S Insurance Agent, My Healthcare Provider Is Not Allowed To Take More Than 50% Of My Settlement ($24,000), Leaving The Remaining $24,000 To Me.
Does Anyone Know Anything About This? I Would Prefer If Answers Could Be Backed By Some Sort Of Legal Evidence (I.E. Civil Code, Statutes, Laws, Etc).
I don't know of any law that says that.
However, as an insurance adjuster, I have negotiated these types of settlements with health insurance companies in the past. I get the health insurance company to put their agreement to settled their health insurance lien for $24,000 in writing and send that to me. I can then provide a copy of it to the injured person. Usually as part of the agreement, I agree to pay the health insurance provider the $24,000 directly.
Then when I settle up with you (the injured person) I can give you a copy of the agreement from the health insurance provider to settle for $24,000 and a copy of the check issued to the health insurance company for your records.
This is a very common type of settlement with a health insurance company and most are willing to work with me. Usually this agreement is worked out when the health insurance lien is greater than the amount of my coverage.
You will need to ask your adjuster to provide written documentation from the health insurance company showing they agreed to reduce their lien or what ever law/statute he is quoting.
Attorney & Lawyers Help? Recommendations?
What Type Of Attorney Would I Need? This Is The Situation. We Are A General Contractor And Have A Contract With A Client For A Commercial Shopping Plaza. We Have Performed The Work. Well, The Client Has Filed Bankruptcy And Owe's Us Around 80K And Left For India For 2 Weeks. The Client Keeps Blowing Us Off. This Has Been Going On For Almost A Year. What Type Of Attorney Would I Go To?
If he filed BK, there probably isnt much you can do. What you SHOULD have done was file a mechanic's lien on the property so you would have some priority to be paid out of the bankrupt estate. It might not be too late to file that lien now. You need to speak with an attorney who handles bankruptcy for creditors.

February 24, 2009 - "Vaccine Court: Autism Debate Continues"
The family of 10-year-old Bailey Banks won their case quietly and without fanfare in June of 2007, but the ruling has only now come to public attention. In the remarkably clear and eloquent decision, Special Master Richard Abell ruled that the Banks had successfully demonstrated that "the MMR vaccine at issue actually caused the conditions from which Bailey suffered and continues to suffer."
Bailey's diagnosis is Pervasive Developmental Disorder -- Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) which has been recognized as an autism spectrum disorder by CDC, HRSA and the other federal health agencies since at least the 1990s.
In his conclusion, Special Master Abell ruled that Petitioners had proven that the MMR had directly caused a brain inflammation illness called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) which, in turn, had caused the autism spectrum disorder PDD-NOS in the child:
The Court found that Bailey's ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. It is well-understood that the vaccination at issue can cause ADEM, and the Court found, based upon a full reading and hearing of the pertinent facts in this case, that it did actually cause the ADEM. Furthermore, Bailey's ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD [an autism spectrum disorder]. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was... a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay.
The Bailey decision is not an isolated ruling. We now know of at least two other successful ADEM cases argued in Vaccine Court. More significantly, an explosive investigation by CBS News has found that since 1988, the vaccine court has awarded money judgments, often in the millions of dollars, to thirteen hundred and twenty two families whose children suffered brain damage from vaccines. In many of these cases, the government paid out awards following a judicial finding that vaccine injury lead to the child's autism spectrum disorder. In each of these cases, the plaintiffs' attorneys made the same tactical decision made by Bailey Bank's lawyer, electing to opt out of the highly charged Omnibus Autism Proceedings and argue their autism cases in the regular vaccine court. In many other successful cases, attorneys elected to steer clear of the hot button autism issue altogether and seek recovery instead for the underlying brain damage that caused their client's autism.
Medical records associated with these proceedings clearly tell the tale. In perhaps hundreds of these cases, the children have all the classic symptoms of regressive autism; following vaccination a perfectly healthy child experiences high fever, seizures, and other illnesses, then gradually, over about three months, loses language, the ability to make eye contact, becomes "over-focused" and engages in stereotypical head banging and screaming and then suffers developmental delays characteristic of autism. Many of these children had received the autism diagnosis. Yet the radioactive word "autism" appears nowhere in the decision.

Seeking Free Legal Advice. The Nky Bar Offers No Pro Bono Lawyers. Where Can I Get The Advice I Need?
I Live In Kentucky And A Decision Was Made Last Friday Reguarding Custody That I Need To Appeal But I Cannot Afford A Lawyer. I Am Happy To Do Footwork And Paperwork Myself But I Don'T Know What And By When?
As was indicated above, contact legal aid services for Kentucky. You also might investigate to determine if any law schools there have a legal clinic. Legal clinics are staffed by law students under the supervision of an attorney and offer legal services to the indigent.
PLEASE do not contact the listing above for prepaid legal, etc. Among other reasons, generally you can't get help for an existing legal condition, and the payments they make on your behalf to an attorney will not always cover the cost.
