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.

I Am A Senior Citizen That Own A Property With A Fence That Was There When I Purchased It 21 Years Ago I Have A Tenant Living There With 4 Kids. A Construction Co. Bought The Vacant Lot Next Me And Want To Build A Home. My Dilemma Is That The Fence That Is There Is 12 Inches Over On Their Property. Next Door. They Said They Will Put A New Fence Up If I Allow Them To Put A Temporary 6 Ft Fence 5 Ft. Inside My Property Line To Put Up Scaffolding And Keep It That Way For The Duration Of The Build. He Has Now Threatened An Injunction That Would Allow Him To Do As He Pleases And That The Expences For A Fence Would Come Out Of My Pocket.
The most important thing is that you do your homework or have someone like a friend or relative help you in this matter.
I work in the Film & Entertainment Industry and you see a lot of people who will threaten you with Law Suits. Many of them prey on people being unfamiliar with the Legal System and use it as a form of Intimidation.
In the Entertaiment Industry, you'll see a lot of people throw around threats of Law Suits and taking people to court. For people who have never gone to court, it can be a daunting experience because they're so used to abiding by the law and being good samaritans.
"Legal Bullying" is where someone "threatens to hit you with a Law Suit" to make you flinch or knuckle under. Whether they have the Legal Positioning to do so is another story. However, when you play your cards right, you can delay his project as well by filing on the last day for appeals and such, which can just be as much as a headache to him.
You may want to check if there is any Legal Precedent where the fence having been placed there for a certain amount of time that may allow you to be within your legal rights or where it's possible that the you may not be in as much trouble as he'd like you to think you are if the fence was placed there by a previous owner.
Sometimes people just threaten people with Law Suits even though they have no leverage at all. Sometimes it even turns out that the person threatening you screwed up and isn't on as solid ground as he or she thinks they are.
It is possible that he could have leverage on you if it turns out that your fence really is on that property, but the most important point is not allow yourself to be bullied around.
Although people would like to believe that the Law System is based off of Justice, legal Issues are a lot like poker to see "who has the better hand." It may very well turn out that he has a better hand, but even people with really good poker hands tend to get overconfident and screw up.
Sadly enough, the other aspect of poker that applies to Law is that the people with deep enough pockets can bully other people around because they have the financial backing where they can outlast their weaker rivals.
That's how a lot of people who happen to be on moral or legal ground end up folding or settling because they don't have the finances to support a long or drawn out court battle.
The nice part is that no fence has been set up yet. If it was a product or service where there was failure of payment, then he may have a real case against you.
Pay close attention if he tries to destroy or dismantle the fence without your permission. You might have some leverage regardless of whether it's on his property or not.
Regardless of whatever he is on solid legal ground or not, don't allow yourself to be intimidated or let him steamroll you over. Always pay attention to latest that you have file. I think it's about 10 days before your actual court date that you may submit that you can't make a court date, which will buy you time.
The Legal System isn't really that painful. It's a lot of annoying paperwork, but the Judical System is set up to be as fair as possible. You want the Legal System to work in your favor.
Sadly enough, crooks and criminals who run through the System a lot know the Legal System well, which allows them to exploit every loophole possible. That's something that people who are inexperienced with the law don't take advantage of.
People should really treat the Legal System like a Game of Tennis rather than try to figure out who's on moral ground or Principles. It sounds like logically twisted, but sometimes you need to know how to deal with people who try to manipulate the Law to their own advantage.
As a Senior Citizen, young people will try to intimidate older people who are inexperienced. Age doesn't really factor in as much as people think.
Another reason why people will threaten Senior Citizens is because they don't feel intimidated by older people that aren't physically strong enough to threaten them. That Psychological aspect makes unscrupulous people go after others.
Try seeing if you can appeal for Legal Help from your area. Try visiting Craiglist:
On the right side there's a listing of all 50 States. Click on your state. Find the closest Metropolitan city to where you live and post an Ad in the Legal Section asking for advice or help explaining your case.
There will be Lawyers that are from your area whom you may be able to talk to directly that will have more intimate knowledge and give you qualified Legal Advice that can properly advise you on how to handle this matter.
If you get Legal Counsel, they may be able to find some Legal Loophole or something that works in your favor. Some may request for a Retainer Fee. If that's the case, sometimes coughing up $80.00 is worth the investment if it will save you on stress and worrying if you're in trouble or not as the other person threatening you with a Law Suit claims.
You can also try checking on his Zoning Permits. There are a whole bunch of things you can do to hinder or delay what he's doing raising his own Opportunity Costs. Right now, you don't have to budge or do anything until he gets a court order of some sort.
The burden of proof is on him. However, even then, you are still allowed to postpone or make appeals that can make really annoy the Hell out of him for not choosing a peaceful resolution and trying to intimidate you.
Even if it turns out that you're on his property, think of it like sitting in someone's Reserved Seat and not knowing it was Reserved. Even if he says it's his seat, you don't have to have vacate your seat. You wait until he brings over an actual Authority or Owner of the Establishment to tell you to move off of that seat.
Don't forget that your fence has been there for 21 years. It wasn't done out of malice or spite. It was just there and you had no idea. They can't punish you harshly for not knowing. The Court System isn't going to be mean or nasty. They'll just give their Ruling. Even after they give their ruling, you can then appeal and try to overturn the decision.
The Legal System was set up to try and be fair and as lenient as possible to ensure that Justice is served. You've paid your taxes. You've been paying your mortage on your house for 21 years. You've paid your dues. It's your home. It's time you have the Law start working for you.
Don't let some young whipper snapper dick you around with the Law. You were working your *** off when he was in diapers. You shouldn't be intimidated, you should be ticked off allowing him to think he can walk all over you like that throwing some Legal Jargon at you.
My Mother Passed Away A While Ago And Me And My Sister Both Got Ss Checks. I No Longer Get Mine Bc I Am Above The Legal Age But My Sister, Who Lives With Some Family Members Who Are Not Her Legal Guardians, Still Gets The Check Which Is Taken Away From Her For &Quot;Rent&Quot; And Other Expenses. The Check Is More Than Enough To Cover The
Entire Rent Which I Don'T Believe She, As A
Minor, Should Pay. Can They, Not Being Her Legal Guardians, Legally Take Her Money? Is It Worth A Fight In Court? Does She Have Any Rights Being A Minor?
The only person with legal standing to complain about the relatives taking the check is her legal guardian.
You say that the relatives she is living with are NOT her guardians. That's unusual to begin with. A court will usually appoint the people that the orphan will be living with to be the guardians, and they will get the check.
Breaking A Trust - Negligent Lawyer And Trustee Theft.?
I Was Recently Told That It Is Possible To Contest/Challenge Trust Fund Terms When One Turns 21 In Canada. Is This True? How Hard Would It Be To Do?
I Inherited A Trust From My Father 6 Years Ago. The Former Trustee [My Father'S Sister] Has Already Broken The Trust In My Opinion, She Stole Over 90K From The Trust Fund. She Was Caught And Has To Pay It Back, And Removed From The Position, Another Person At My Father'S Lawyer'S Firm Has Been Assigned As The Trust Officer. The Trust'S Original Terms Are That I Am Not To Receive It Until I Am 40, Which Every Lawyer I'Ve Talked To Has Said That They'Ve Never Seen It That High Before, And Agree That It'S Quite Ridiculous. I Am Currently 28, And I Believe I Am Mature Enough To Handle The Money. I Would Like To Put The Money Towards Furthering My Education And Providing For My Family.
My Father'S Lawyer Is Extremely Uncooperative. He Neglected His Duties By Allowing The Money To Be Stolen. He Has Lied To Me, My Lawyer, And The Rcmp. He Ignores Correspondence, I Do Not Have A Full Accounting Of The Money In The Trust. It Is Impossible To Get Any Information From Him At All. He Only Works 2 Hours A Day And Goes On 'Vacation' Frequently.I Even Went As Far To Call The Bar Society To Complain But They Claimed To Be Able To Do Nothing. I Have Been Fighting With Him For 6 Years And I'M At The End Of My Rope.
Thank You For Your Time.
21 is not an overly meaningful age in Canadian law - the reason it often gets used in trusts is unrelated to capacity of minors. (Has to do with an arcane legal rule against perpetuities...not relevant here.)
To some extent it depends on the nature and terms of the trust, but yes, it is usually possible for adult beneficiaries of a trust to apply to a court to determine (i.e. end) the trust. You'd likely need to hire your own lawyer to do it.
How Has Illegal Immigration Artificially Inflated The Cost Of Goods And Services?
Consider This. With The Exception Of Cartels Such As Opec And The Diamond Industry Consumers Drive Prices On Goods And Services.
Due To The Artificially Lower Cost Of Produce As A Result Of Illegal Immigrant Workers Coupled With Artificially Lower Cost Products Due To Anything-But-Free Trade Agreements, Consumers Have Been Spending More For Other Products And Services Than They Could Normally Afford (For Decades).
How Has Lower Costs On Certain Items Via Illegal Laborers And Broken Trade Agreements Driven Up Costs In Other Areas, Which In Essence Undo The Ill Gotten Savings From Illegal Aliens And Cheap Foreign Labor?
The diamond industry is driven by consumer demand. Diamonds are a commodity, the price fluctuates.
Consider the fact that American citizens are out of jobs because illegal immigrants are taking them. Illegal immigrants don't pay taxes. Working legal citizens do. Illegal immigrants get paid crap, and in turn spend less on the economy. All this well counters the lower production and product cost.
Can Someone Look Up The Definition Of Martial Law On Urban Dictionary For Me? 10 Points?

Please Pick At Least 2-4 Definitions For Me?
The day Martial Law is declared, is the day you wake up and realize that your Constution/bill of Rights/Charter of Rites and Freedoms/etc. is really just about as valuable as that Kleenex you just spunked in... because rites are just privileges, and privileges can be revoked. Your government will do whatever it takes to stay in power, and they got the gunz...
Martial Law can be recognized by the increased presence of men with plexiglass shields and/or sub-machine-guns, a pale green fog that tastes, smells and feels like burning, random acts of hippy clubbing and indiscriminate shooting into crowds.
If your going to "get your loot on" its best to do it during the Preceding state of emergency, because once Martial Law is declared, the party's over. Usually once Martial Law is declared, its best to just stay home, tune into your local state-owned media outlet and do what they say. The punishment for most criminal offenses becomes summary execution, and most of the things you might do out in public become criminal offenses.
Looting = criminal offense = shot on sight
Exercising freedom of speech= criminal offense= disappeared (shot out of sight)
looking like you might be a 'rebel' = criminal offense = a. shot on sight or b. disappeared
On the street after curfew = criminal offense = shot on sight
Looking at the officer the wrong way = criminal offense = shot on sight
If you must go out, try not to wear that 'Rage Against the Machine' tee-shirt, red star...
Martial law is when the National Guard and/or Armed Forces are called upon by a Governor or President to restore order when the problem is too big for local law enforcement authorities.
If there is excessive violence and civil disorder in a certain place that the police are unable to cope with, the governor or president or mayor, may call for the national guard or army to quell the disturbances. The military usually declares a state of martial law. In this situation, a curfew is put in place, looters may be shot on sight if need be. Break the military law and you will be tried by a military court in most cases. This is a most extreme solution to an insurrection or revolution.
Martial law is not going to happen and it didn't even happen during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. I worked New Orleans during Katrina and Martial Law was never declared. Sometimes it is necessary but it's not a threat to the American people. Remember, police officers are tax paying citizens with families also. They are not robots and they can think for themselves. It's not going to happen.
not just some stupid movie.
The suspension of normal civil law and its replacement by strict military control.
Imposed during crises, emergencies or civil unrest.
Military rules ALL.
suspension of rights and freedoms
Iraq, maybe, after the June 30 pseduo handover.
those are all the definitions
