4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you need a legal representative at all, you have to work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important approaches 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 going to reveal to them. Privilege means whatever you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - particularly information the other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, every time. In reality, because you may want to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready 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 arrested for any kind of crime, it's important in order to convince the court which you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Need Legal Help, Looking For Good Employment Law Attorney!?
Hey Does Anyone Know Of A Really Good Employment Law Attorney In The Milwaukee Or West Bend Area? Looking For One To Hear Story At No Charge And Then Decide If It Is A Good Case To Take On.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Employment Law for employEES. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge? (per hour)
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Website Purchase Legal Question?
So I Am Purchasing A Website ( Domain Name+Website+All The Database Assosiated With It), The Guy Selling It Wants Me To Write Up A Contract Specifically Putting A (Indemnification Clause Statement On It), Since I An Not Very Good With Legal Stuff I Was Wondering If I Put That There, If In The Past The Guy Had Any Legal Issue With The Site ( Ex. Law Suits, Owes Money To Someones Or Any Legal Stuff) Would That Means I Would Be Responsible For It After I Buy The Site ? Or Does It Mean After Sale He Is Not Responsible For Anything , I Basically Want To Make Sure That Won'T Hurt Me In Any Way. Please Help. Thanks
When making any business transaction, hire an attorney to draw up the contract. Yes, it may cost you a few hundred bucks, but in the long run, it will save you thousands in litigation costs should any issues arise.
Indemnification clauses are standard in any business purchase agreement, but so are representations and warranties. Yes, you should indemnify the previous owner of any legal issues that arise out of the normal course of business, and you should be responsible for those events. However, the current owner should warranty that he ran the site legally under his ownership and that there is not outstanding litigation (or disclose the outstanding litigation). Your indemnification should be very specific as to what you are holding the previous owner harmless for. It should exclude any issues that arise from his past illegal activities or from his fraud. A properly worded and well thought out indemnification clause should accomplish this - but, again, you need an attorney to verify that it does so under the laws of your state.
As you can see, this is a very complicated legal issue and should be handled by an attorney. Go see an attorney. If you want to save a few bucks, draft the agreement, but have an attorney review it. An improperly drafted agreement could end up being voided in whole or part - which means that any protections that it offered you could be gone just because it wasn't worded properly!

Forced To Drive Under The Influence?
I Live In Tennessee And Recently Had Surgery. My Surgeon Says I Am Not To Go Back To Work Until A Few More Weeks. However, The Std Insurance Says I Need To Go Back To Work Now. They Know I Take Heavy Amounts Of Pain Medication (Loritabs) While Still Recovering. Can They Say I Have To Go To Work And Drive 45 Minutes Each Way During Rush Hour Traffic Knowing That I Am Going To Be Under The Influence Of A Narcotic.
No one is forcing you to drive under the influence. They are telling you to go back to work. How you get there is up to you. If you decide to break the law in order to go back to work, then you must pay the consequences if you are caught.
There are alternatives. If you have public transportation, take that. Get a ride from someone else. Or. if the doctor still thinks you should not go back to work, look into LTD (if you have the benefit).
Do Malpractice Attorneys Disfavor A National Health System?
Seems Like It Would Mean Less Malpractice To Work Off Of.
(America, Of Course)
No, but this is because they are idiots. And WOW is your premise way, way off base if you think a nationalized health care system would mean LESS malpractice.
There is far more medical malpractice in a nationalized-type health care system. (You can Google for the specific data, but, for example, take a look at how long it takes for a patient in a nationalized health care system to get an appointment for a CT-scan or an MRI or to have bypass surgery, etc.) In this country, patients would be suing for wrongful death over these kinds of delays. But in a nationalized health care system, there is no real choice. It comes down to supply and demand - and there are far and away more patients than there are doctors and medical equipment. And unless you are extremely wealthy (and can afford to pay for your doctor out of your own pocket), you are going to wait.
But the attorneys who focus on the initial flush of malpractice are very short sighted. There would INITIALLY be a big bump in malpractice causes of action, but then the doctors would have to be absorbed into the federal system. Once the doctors are federal employees (called "national doctors" in other countries), they can no longer be sued like a private citizen. Qualified immunity protects them - and patients who are treated negligently don't have any real recourse.
[I am continuing to shake my head over so many Americans steadfast belief a nationalized health care system would mean everyone would get a better/higher standard of care. It does not work that way. It cannot work that way. Look at our current federal economic crisis. Where would the money come to pay for health care? Nowhere, is exactly right. The national quality of health care would decline and there would be a six to eighteen month waiting list to have heart bypass surgery the way it is in Canada - rather than a zero to six DAY waiting period in this country. (There is a reason people from Canada come to America every day for bypass surgery - and it isn't because they WANT to pay for the surgery out of their own pockets.)]
Legal Advice About My Mother'S Actions?
A Little History; My Mom Is Extremely Attached To Me And Can'T Cut The Cord. She Is Upset Because After Years Of Being Guilt Tripped Into Staying Home To Help Her Take Care Of My Five Younger Siblings I Am Moving Out. My Boyfriend Lived With Me There In A Little Tiny Studio Which She Agreed To But Now That She Sees I Have Grown More Independent And Stronger Because Of Him She Doesn'T Like It And Is Claiming That Him Living There Was Only A Temporary Thing But She Talked To Us And We Agreed On A Set Rent And So Forth And Agreed For Him To Stay. Now That I Moved She Is Claiming That A Car I Bought Two Years Ago She Helped Pay For And Is Now Saying I Owe Her $1300 Dollars And Until She Gets It Back She Is Keeping My Two Project Cars And A Project Motor I Have As Collateral. As My Mother She Paid For It Like A Gift But Now She Is Upset That I Moved Out And Says I Owe Her. Now With Her Saying All This She Also Says That If I Don'T Pay Her The $1300 Not Only Will She Keep The Cars And Motor She Will Put A Lien On It And Sue My Boyfriend For Damages. I Don'T Even Understand That Statement, What &Quot;Damages&Quot; Can She Possibly Pull Out Of Her *** To Sue Him For Just Because She Doesn'T Like Him??? Please Tell Me What To Do Because I Am At A Loss.
Wow, this is tough and confusing. I would try and contact one of those free lawyer things or free lawyer hotlines. I think stuff like that exsists. There has to be some legal advice out there for small claims. If you get the project cars & motors or whatever, can you put it somewhere? It'd be tricky to "claim" this stuff when you need to keep it on her property.
The only thing I can say is I don't see how she can bring your boyfriend into this. She can't just sue a guy for no reason! Unless theres something your not mentioning?
Try and get legal advice from someone. Good luck.
