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.

Do I Have A Legal Case? Help?
I'M A Member At One Of Those Famous Gyms, Yesterday I Went To Workout And I Brought My 2 Yr Old Along To Their &Quot;Daycare&Quot; (2 Hr/ 3 Dlls). About An Hour After One Of The Babysitters Came To Tell Me That My Little One Was Crying, Since It Was Almost 8 Pm, I Thought Maybe She'S Tired, When I Went To Pick Her Up They Gave Me Her Stuff And That Was That. When I Came Home She Was Still Crying, So I Took Off Her Clothes To Check And I Saw Her Elbow Was Very Swollen. We Took Her To Th Er And Found Out That She Has A Fractured Elbow. Today I Found Out That She Will Need To Have Surgery Next Week To Fix It. She Has Health Insurance But I'M Really Upset That None Of The 3 Or 4 Babysitters That Were There Mention Anything About A Fall Or Nothing, I Mean What If She Hit Her Head Or Something More Serious, Now They Have Sec Cameras But I Know It Will Be Impossible To Get The Tape. Now I Spoke With A Lawyer Today And He Said That B/C I Don'T Know Exactly What Happened And B/C Of The Terms & Conditions Of The Contract There'S Not Much I Can Do Except To Send Them A Letter To See If They Will Let Me See The Tape, But That More Likely I Will Never Get To See It.
What Do You Think I Can Do?
A fractured elbow and your attorney is telling you that 'maybe' they'll let you see the tape? Uh-huh!
First, get another attorney, one who specializes in personal injury. This is one of the few times you want a ruthless shark in your corner. Try http://www.martindale.com, which is the site for Martindale-Hubbell, the national attorney listings. Martindale will let you search by specialty (in your case, personal injury), and also by grade (you want someone with an A grade who will work on contingency.) The *attorney*, NOT you, should be the one to write a letter, if any. An attorney who's filing a case could send a subpoena for the tape and they'd *have* to produce it.
If by some chance a really good attorney tells you that he can't sue the gym, then I'd call the police and see if you can file a report for suspected child abuse. (I might do it anyway.) THAT will light a fire under their rear ends. I think it is VERY suspicious that someone came to tell you that 'she's crying and we don't know why', but didn't realize a child had fallen hard enough to fracture her elbow? Something smells here. I'd tell the police you have concerns that your daughter may have been manhandled or otherwise injured by one of the employees, and tell them what happened.
I do think it's imperative that some action be taken, though. My husband is a police sergeant in our city, and one of the worst calls he was ever on was at a daycare. A four year old (admittedly, one who was a very clingy sort) had run up to one of the workers to wrap around his leg. He shoved her away, and she fell backward, hit her head, fractured her skull, and died. Sure, he's in prison now, and it was an aberration, but that doesn't bring the child back. Someone in that daycare is not being responsible, and they need to be stopped before a child is hurt even more seriously than yours.
I was a teacher before I became a paralegal, and I used to run our school daycare one evening a week. I'm telling you now, there's NO reason that a daycare professional should not be aware that a child has fallen and injured him or herself. Someone did, and I'm betting that someone was responsible for the injury and trying to cover it up, thinking that your two year old would not be able to tell you.
I wish you the best of luck and if I could, I'd pass some really heavy bricks for you to lob at these peoples' heads. There's simply no excuse. But I'm so sorry that both you and your daughter have to go through this.
Will Legal Aid Help Me If.....?
I Tell Them There Has Been Physical Abuse In My Marriage? I Am In A Verbally Abusive Marriage And I Live In Michigan. Someone Told Me That If I Tell Legal Aid That My Spouse Had Ever Been Physically Abusive To Me, They Will Not Help Me With Legal Services For A Seperation/Divorce Etc. Does Anyone Know If This Is True?
Legal Aid organizations are terribly under-funded. So, they have to establish priorities for the types of cases they handle. Each one sets different priorities--so, you need to check with your local Legal Aid.
Arizona Has Banned Public Aid To Services That Also Provide Abortions. Religion Interfering With Politics?
Many Citizens Also Oppose Their Taxes Going Toward Military Excursions And Space Exploration, But No Legislature Even Considers Restrictions On Tax Money For Those Purposes. What Is The Justification For Excluding Aid To Health Providers Like Planned Parenthood Because They Also Provide Abortions? Or On Foreign Aid That Includes Information On Birth Control And Abortions? Too Much Kowtowing To Religious Extremists? The Governor Insists Her Signature Reflects The Views Of The Majority Of Citizens. Is That True? Or Just The Views Of A Vocal Minority? And Does It Matter What The Majority Opinion Du Jour Is In A Constitutional Republic?
That abortions are legal and also that tax money does not fund them is the COMPROMISE between The Christian right and the liberal left. You do understand there needs to be compromise? You secularists seem to think only you should have your way.
Question About Japanese Divorce Law?
Something Doesn'T Sound Right About This. Can Someone Please Give Me A Little Insight?
I Have A Close Friend That Was Married In Japan. She Is From The Us And She Married A Japanese Man Almost 20 Years Ago. They Had 2 Kids Together - 10 And 8 Years Old.
She Now Wants A Divorce. They Went Through Separation Proceedings Already, But They Couldn'T Agree On Who Would Keep The Children.
She Is Telling Me That She Is Stuck In Limbo For The Time Being Because If She Does File For Divorce, She Will Lose All Access To Her Children Because She Is Not Japanese. Her Husband Also Has His Parents Living With Him, So Because Of That, He Would Gain Custody Of The Children Because His Parents Are There To Take Care Of Them. She Basically Has 2 Strikes Against Her Right Off The Bat.
She Says Her Only Recourse Is To Wait Until Her Children Of An Age In Which They Can Possibly Influence With Which Parent They Would Stay. I Don'T Know What That Age Is In Japan, So If Someone Knows That, It Would Be Very Helpful As Well. Apparently, There Is Also No Joint Custody In Japan.
Is There No Court Mediation Available Like In The States To Determine These Things Or Is It That Cut And Dry Over There? Something Just Doesn’T Sound Right About This. She Puts 20 Years Into A Marriage And She Is Just Going To Lose All Access To Her Children Because Her Husband Is A Lying, Controlling And Manipulative Jerk? I Realize Life Isn’T Fair, But Seriously?
I'm sorry that your friend is going through this and I can't give you legal answers but being half and formerly living there, I can tell you that culturally this is normal. My guess is that the Japanese side of the family does not want to lose the children as they fear they will move back to America with the mother. I assume that due to Japanese laws, once divorced, your friend will lose her claim to residency unless she became a citizen so that could cause her to move back home and put the fear in the in-laws. For more legal advice, please see the US Embassy of Japan's page on divorce and children custody. It is greatly advised she has someone who can translate legalese for her.
I cannot verify the accuracy but wikipedia states, "Joint custody of children ends upon divorce. In a divorce by agreement, the husband and wife must determine which parent will have custody of each child. In other types of divorce, custody is determined by the mediator or judge, with a strong preference toward custody by the mother (especially with regard to children born after the divorce)."
I don't know enough divorced w/ children families in Japan but I think it's sole custody only but can have mutual agreement for visits.
Starting Salary For Corporate Lawyer?
I Am A U Of Colorado-Boulder Student And I Have Received My Bcomm Degree And Attending Law School At Ucolorado In The Fall. I Am Just Wondering The Avg. Starting Salary Of A Corporate Lawyer With A Jd? (Employment In The Denver Area And 23 Years Old When I Graduate)
Starting salary depends on many things, including location, area of practice, school attended, and quality of applicant. Salaries can range from $50K to $150K. Be prepared to burn the candle at both ends for a long time. There is a lot to learn. You might want to set your sights on the lower numbers as a new attorney does not have a lot of value to an established corporation. Experience is a valuable asset.
There is a good article at the link below.
By the way, and I offer this comment with the best of intentions while living in a glass house, if your question is representative of your writing style, you need to work on it. If I were interviewing to hire an attorney and saw a note like yours, you would immediately be disqualified. I know this is the Internet, but writing is critical for an attorney. Also, all corporate lawyers have JDs. Good luck.
Will I Need A Lawyer?
Will I Need A Laywer To Put My Name On The House To Be Able To Sell It If My Husband Passes Away?
Depends on what state you live in but if he owned that house before you were married you have no rights to it unless he leaves it to you in a will or you are on the title. Sounds like you need to start talking to your husband or getting a divorce attorney.
