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.

After Criminal Charges Are Filed Can The Victim Still File A Civil Case?
If Criminal Charges Were Filed And Dismissed (A Misdeamonr). Can The Victim Still File Civil Charges To Regain Loses?
Sure of course you can file a civil suit against a person criminal charges are filed against. However, you still have a statute of limitations issue to deal with so you must make sure that you have timely filed suit in your civil case.
Remember the burden of proof in a criminal case is beyond a reasonable doubt, which is the highest burden of proof. However, in a civil case the burden of proof is preponderance of the evidence which is a much lower burden of proof standard necessary to prove ones case.
Just because the burden of proof was not proved in a criminal case lets say (I know you said the criminal case in your example was dismissed) that does not mean in a civil suit that the proof would not be met. Think about the O.J. Simpson case were the criminal case said he was "Not guilty" (which does not mean he was innocent but only the evidence against him was not proved to the juries satisfaction beyond a reasonable doubt. However, in the civil suit brought against Mr. Simpson he was subsequently found responsible and liable for the deaths of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson. The standard of proof was lower in the civil case.
What Are The Grandparents Rights?
My Brother Has A 2 Year Old Son And The Mom Is Keeping Him From Him Because He Has A New Girlfriend! My Mom Is Getting Fed Up Because She Never Let'S Him Come Over For Anything, We See Him Maybe Once A Moth For Probably About 5 Or 6 Hours And He Has To Be Home Before 8Pm They Lived With Us For A While But When They Broke Up She Left, They Have No Custody Agreements, He Pays Child Support But She Won'T Let Him See The Baby Because &Quot;He Has A Girlfriend&Quot;.. My Parents Are Fed Up And Want To Know If They Can Get A Lawyer And Take Her To Court And Get Some Kind Of Visitation? Please Answer Asap! My Brother Is By No Means A Sucky Parent, He'S Safe Here, Everything! The Only Thing She Has Against Him Is He Is Dating Someone New But It'S Been Almost A Year Now, Can She Legally Keep Him From His Dad Just Because He Has A New Girl?
He needs to go to court and petition for custody/visitation.
This doesn't seem as much as grandparents rights or even father's rights as much as it seems to be a case of child rights.
She cannot keep the child from the father and will have to answer to it in court. He must put his foot down and act swiftly. It is not that difficult to get this rolling in court, even without an attorney. I did it all on my own and ended up with custody.
As far as the grandparents issue, I do not know about every state but many states will not award grandparents visitation if both the child's parents are involved. Yes, there was a time when GP's could get visitation but some courts have moved away from that.
Please, grab your brother by the collar and take him to the courthouse to get this rolling. Tell him for me that he has more rights now than ever before. I think he will find it will turn out better than he thinks.
I Have Some Questions About Legal Issues?
If It Matters, I Live In Kentucky. I'M Not Sure If These Type Of Laws Vary From State To State.
I'Ll Be Turning 16 In Less Than A Month, My Mom And Dad Are Divorced And I Live With My Mom. I Would Like To Cut All Ties With My Dad, Is It True That I'M Allowed To Do That When I Turn 16?
Also, Since My Mom Is My Legal Guardian, Can She Sign For Me To Drop Out Of School Without My Dad'S Consent? And Please Just Answer My Question, I Really Don'T Want A Lecture From Someone Who Knows Nothing About My Situation.
One More Thing, If I Drop Out, Can I Still Get My Permit And License?
Dropping out is not the smartest thing to do. I will give you some practical advice: find some sort of legal aid session and ask a lawyer who knows Kentucky civil law.
If you live near a college, try contacting the Criminal Justice department or the Law degree program and ask if they offer any free legal aid. Otherwise, consult your county's Legal Bar and ask them or ask your church's pastor if there is a lawyer in the congregation that can help.
Unless you get an answer from a lawyer familiar with Kentucky law, you might not get the correct information you need.
What Do You Think Court Border Patrol Should Of Allowed 3 Times The Limit Drunk Driver To Drive?
The U.S. Border Patrol Has The Power To Stop Weapons Of Mass Destruction From Entering The Country And Protecting The Border From Illegal Immigrant Crossings.
That Power Does Not, However, Extend To Policing Erie Streets For Drunken Drivers, An Erie County Judge Has Ruled.
Judge John Garhart Has Thrown Out The Evidence Against A Woman Who Was Detained By A U.S. Border Patrol Agent Who Said He Observed Her Swerving Her Vehicle In Traffic At A Time When Her Blood Alcohol Content Was Measured At More Than Three Times The Legal Limit For Driving, 0.08 Percent.
Garhart Granted A Suppression Motion By The Woman, Corrine Breon, Whose Lawyer, Stephen Sebald, Argued That A U.S. Border Patrol Agent Improperly Detained Her Before Calling Erie Police To Arrest Her.
Garhart Said The Agent, Identified As &Quot;Agent Gregory&Quot; In Court Records, Acted Reasonably And Responsibly And In Good Faith.
&Quot;He Was Nearly Hit By Miss Breon And Was Clearly Concerned, Not Only With Her Welfare, But That Of The Other Citizens Of The Commonwealth.&Quot;
But Garhart Said That The Agent Did Not Have The Authority To Conduct The Stop Either As A Federal Agent Or As A Private Citizen.
Sebald Welcomed The Ruling.
&Quot;It Is The Right Decision. When Law Enforcement Does Not Understand The Parameters Of Authority, It Just Opens Up Pandora'S Box,&Quot; He Said.
The Case Stemmed From A Traffic Incident That Occurred Jan. 16, 2010, On West Eighth Street.
This is outrageous! There is no question as to her guilt. Our legal system has allowed her to get away with drunk driving because there were no police officers in the area to observe her driving drunk? What kind of message is that sending out to our kids? Does she get a free pass when she hits and kills someone while driving drunk as long as she runs away and there are no police officers to observe her doing so? Is she safe at "home base" because she made it to her driveway? What is wrong with you people? I wonder why society is going down the drain!
I am whole-heartedly disgusted with our justice system.
If You Worked In A Law Firm And Were Getting Divorced, Is It Acceptable To Have To Different Lawers In...?
In Your Firm Represent You And Your Spouse? What If You Were Getting Married And You Needed Prenuptial Agreement?
Legally, it's acceptable. It is certainly not advisable. If the divorce is amicable and not terribly involved, I think this would be more acceptable. If not, it would probably not be appropriate.
Most prenups are pretty standard these days. I don't see a conflict in handling one in-house.
Fifth Degree Felony Charge?
A Kid At My School Has Just Been Found Guilty Of 3 Counts Of Trafficking Marijuana. This Is Apparently A Fifth Degree Felony, How Many Years Will He Get? He Is 18.
If it is his first offense he will probably get a plea bargain and deferred sentence. This means if he complies with probation and completes all aspects of his sentence without getting in trouble he will probably get his sentence reduced to a class A misdemeanor or less. The DA generally won't want to ruin this kids life with a felony for a marijuana trafficking charge less involving less than 8oz.
If he already has a criminal record, he will probably get 6 months in jail (and serve 1-2 months of it).
