4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a legal representative at all, you should work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important ways to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal for 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 - most importantly information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all the information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, whenever. In reality, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or even be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to the court that you simply both regret the actions and are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

What Kind Of Attorney Do I Hire To Sue A Government Agency?
Recently Local Da'S Office Took My Confidential Records (Protected By State Code) And Disclosed To Third Parties. All They Can Do Now Is Say ''Sorry''. I Would Like To Sue Them For That, But I Don'T Know What Kind Of Lawyer Takes A Case Like That. I Looked On The Internet And From Yellow Pages, But All I See Is Criminal/Dui/Divorce/Corporate Etc. What Classification Do They Fall Under? I Don'T Wanna Pay Some Referreal Service A $100 For Such A Simple Piece Of Information, Especially Without Knowing If They'Ll Take My Case.
Where Are All The Sleazy Lawyers With Frivolous Lawsuits When You Need Them?
That's a violation of your rights based on the Open Records act. You need to call around to civil attorney's, or get the name of a good one. If the consultation isn't free tell them to jam it. Anyhow, what usually happens with a good attorney is he tells you whether he can handle it, if not he gets on the phone and gets you to someone who can. That second attorney will owe the first a finders fee when you settle. Good luck.

Your question is unclear? Why do you wish to find a lawyer? To organise a divorce? Any family lawyer can do that. Australia has a no fault divorce - it doesnt matter who "cheated", the marriage is considered over with no one being at fault.

Attorneys And Lawyers Only
One need not be an attorney to read the FTC rules:
You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs.
Here is further information on debt collection violations:
If A Court Denies Me The Right To Appeal, Without Attorney, Can I Sue The State For Violating My Rights?
You don't have the "right" to appeal simply because you want to. You can appeal specific decisions as long as you follow the rules to do so. If you don't follow the rules, you don't have the right to appeal.
You certainly can't sue the state (which is part of the executive branch of government) because you don't like what the judicial branch of government is doing.

In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take classes/seminars etc. to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!)
Previous-poster "daaaave" is correct: You can't practice law without a law degree and a license to practice. daaaave has a good idea: If you are interested in the legal aspects of your work you should contact some construction law attorneys and offer your services as an expert witness. Experts can make great money and from the type of work you would like to do, it seems like it would be right up your alley.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. ANd the legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are still in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
