4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you want a legal representative at all, you must work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important strategies to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means what you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most especially information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each time. In fact, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important so as to prove to the legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Child Custody Lawyers?
Anyone Know Approximately What'S Fair Regarding Legal Fees For Divorce/Child Custody Lawyers?
Any Recommendations For Lawyers In Hawaii?
My lawyer cost me over $5000.00. The retainer was $2500.00. The only people who win in a divorce is the lawyers. If the two of you can (and sometimes it's not possible...like with my divorce), try and work out settlement on your own and file by yourself. That's what my sister did. She only paid around $500.00 total....but, she didn't have any kids or child support to deal with. Good luck.
Oh, and the $5000.00 is usually the low standard...my lawyer sucked! You get what you pay for.

I Live In The Us, Washington State To Be Precise, I Don'T Have Much Money To Be Throwing Around At Expensive Lawyers, And I Seem To Never Have Any Clue What My Rights Are. The Problem With This Is, I Constantly Get Walked Over By Companies Who Know I Won'T Take Legal Actions.

I Don'T Understand Any Of This, And I Have Nobody To Turn To About These Types Of Things. I Did Find Some Renter Assistance Page For The Mail Box Key Thing, But What About Other Things That Come Up? How Can I Know What To Do? I Don'T Have Relatives To Ask These Questions. I Can'T Pay For A Lawyer Every Time I Have A Small Legal Question. Where Can I Turn?
Hello game designer. IN england there is a gov funded group called the Citizens Advice Bureau. Basically a self help for the public on legal and other matters. You go there for advice for situations you state is there something similar in the states?. I suggest looking up Consumer rights/law in the library/gov websites. ITs amazing how co-operative firms are if they are told of the law by a client/customer. As they probably now the law yet hope no - one finds out - so they can stiff you. No company likes a complainer - especially if he/she knows the law.They have to follow the rules/law.
Why Are There So Many Commercials On Local Tv By/For Disability Lawyers..?
It Used To Be Only Occasionally, But Now It'S Like You See One, Right After Another Offering Tv Viewers 'Top Benefits For Your Disability Claim..' Are They Just Giving It To Anyone Now..?
It's just the latest way for them to drum up business. What the people don't realize is how much it will COST them to use one of them to get disability. There are a lot of people out there trying to get on disability who aren't really disabled. Just because your back hurts and you can no longer lift 100lbs doesn't make you disabled. Let's face it, if you're over 35, everyone has things they can't do anymore.
The problem is, there are so many lazy folks out there trying to get on it that don't need it, that it's harder for people with legitimate disabilities to get it.
If I Cause An Accident While Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol, Will Me Insurance Pay? Should They Pay?
In the US, the standard auto policy does NOT include an exclusion for accidents that occur while the driver is operating under the influence of anything. But the endorsement DOES exist. I have only ever seen it used on commercial auto policies, and only once, actually, in 21 years.
You can, however, be an excluded driver on the policy, in which case, the insurance doesn't apply - regardless of influence.
Should they pay? Absolutely. The POINT of that coverage, is to pay for the damages of the innocent party. The operator will be "punished" by the rating system. Contracts must be adhered to, and the occasional DUI driver is factored into the rates.
Are YOU covered? Who knows? I don't know what country you are in, or what policy form you have, or if you're an excluded operator. Ask your agent, or read your policy.
Is This A Case Of Medical Negligence An Is There An Attorney That Will Sue On My Behalf?
My Grandmother Is 90Yrs Old And Suffers From Dementia. A Few Months Ago My Aunts And Uncles Agreed To Take Shifts In Caring For Her At Her Home. A Few Weeks Afterward They (The Aunts And Uncles) Got Into An Argument About Her (My Grandmother) Care, And One Of Her Children, Presented A False Power Of Attorney, Took Her To A Psychiatric Hospital For The Elderly. Now My Grandmother Had Never Been Violent Or Problematic Before This Indecent, But After One Night There She Was Confused, Violent, And &Quot;Wanted To Go Home.&Quot; When My Mother Found Out About This She Gave The Hospital Her Valid Power Of Attorney And Had Her Released. The Very Night My Grandmother Was Released She Was Still Confused And Violent So My Mother Had No Choice But To Take Her Back To The Hospital. The Next Week My Mother Had A Meeting With One Of The Doctors Of That Hospital (To See About Putting My Grandmother In A Nursing Home). At That Very Meeting The Doctor Told My Mother That My Grandmother &Quot;Would Have To Be At This Hospital For 7 Days, And We Would Have To Put Her On Medication 'Black Labeled' By The Fda.&Quot; After The 7 Days The Doctor Changed His Mind And Wanted To Keep My Grandmother For Another 20 Days. When My Mother Disagreed To His Proposal,L He Presented Her With A Blackmail That If My Grandmother Was Taken From His Care He Would Make It Impossible For Her To Be Admitted To A Nursing Home. Despite What The Doctor Had Said My Mother Took My Grandmother From Under His Care, And Tried To Have Her Admitted To Multiple Nursing Homes. When The Nursing Homes Would Not Admit My Grandmother They Said That She Would Have To Be Readmitted To The Hospital We Had Taken Her From Because Of What The Doctor Had Put In Her Medical File.
(Sorry For The Punctuation).
I believe any attorney can win that case. It is a no brainier. Try to get proof of what he said, even if it means having another meeting with a tape recorder in your pocket.
mnwoman...it is the point that the grandmother came back violent...they don't have good medical care. Many places that deal with the elderly have proof of abuse to patients. Point it you need to loko at it other than just facts but individually
Construction Law - Submittals?
I Work For An Electrical/Low Voltage Contractor. I Am Working On A Project For The City And With Past History With Working With The City, They Have Never Wanted To Own Up To Any Changes And Expect The Contractor To Pay For Everything.
I Recently Submitted A Submittal Package On Light Fixtures And The City Reviewed Them And Approved Them. I Ordered The Material And Had It Stored In Our Warehouse For Installation. 1 Day Before Some 8&Quot; Recessed Trough Fixtures Needed To Be Installed The City Told Me They Wanted Louver Lenses And Not Acrylic. I Told Them This Change Would Come At A Cost, Since Louver Packages Tend To Cost More Per Fixture And They Claimed I Was In The Wrong, Because They Intended For A Louver Fixture Even Though The Submittals They Approved Clearly Displays An Acrylic Lens.
Another Issue That Resulted With The Same Fixtures Is The Length Of Some Of Them. The Fixtures Come In 2', 3', And 4' Sections, Or They Come In 6' And 8' Sections By Combining 2 Fixture Housings. They Claimed In An Addendum Before My Bid Was Due &Quot;The Fixtures Should Fit The Maximum Possible Length According To The Specifications&Quot;, But The Specifications I Received Didn'T Have A Specific Length, Only Said What Wall They Should Be Placed On. I Had 6' And 8' Sections Clearly Displayed In My Package That Was Approved. We Come To Find Out The 8' Section Won'T Fit And They Want 7' (3' And 4' Section) And Are Claiming I Am In The Wrong. On The Other Spectrum, The Distributor Gave My Vendor The Wrong Pricing For These Fixtures And Said They Will Own Up To The Original Mistake, But I Will Have To Purchase Full Priced Fixtures For Any Changes In Work. What Was Originally An 8' Fixture For $300 Would Now Cost $530 For A 7' Fixture.
What I Am Asking Is, How Much Weight Does My Submittal Package Have That I Turned In? The Project Was Only $20K, But The Change From An 8' To 7' Fixture Will Cost $1500 And We Would Take A Huge Loss On The Project. It Seems Wrong That The Contractor Has To Take The Hit When Both The Distributor And Owner Made Very Large Mistakes On This Job.
Any Insight Will Help.
If it was specified, the party falling short of the spec is financially responsible. Your submittal package should have binding language that reflects that concept.
You mention "huge loss", but $1500 may be the cost of securing your future shortlisting in projects with this client, going forward. If I told you that I (as an agent) could *guarantee the successful close* of this deal at the price you had otherwise bid, would you pay me for that service? If no, then the answer is simple:walk away.
I have always padded my bids for municipalities and government projects, especially when I see that they don't have much experience in my specific industry; it is unfortunate that the general "impedance mismatch" between consumer and supplier in these situations incurs a lot of babysitting. The extra compensation makes it more palatable.
