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.

California Contract Law Between Client And Attorney.?
I'Ll Try To Keep It Short And Simple.
I Hired An Attorney To Manage My Case, But 3 Months Later He Recused Himself Saying That I Am Better Off At Seeking Judgement In Small Claims (Which Is Horseradish Because My Medical Bills Already At Substantial)
I Remember Signing A Contract That If He Were Terminated Or No Longer On The Case (One Of The 2 But Possible Both) That He May Collect 45% From The Judgement.
Can He Collect That Fee Even Though He Abandon The Case?
Check your copy of the fee agreement to make sure what you think it says is accurate. If you don't have a copy, contact him & request it. While you're at it, insist he provide you with the entire case file (in CA the file belongs to the client, so he cannot withhold it for any reason nor can he charge you for it).
Chances are, your recollection of the contract is incorrect. 45% is very high...typically, fee agreements top out at 40% & only go that high if the lawyer represents the case all the way through trial (lower % if it settles). Now that your attorney is no longer on the case, he is no longer entitled to a contingency percentage. He may seek compensation for the time/expense he put into the case, however the exact amount would need to be determined by a court or arbitrator. If the fee agreement does actually state he's entitled to 45% even after he is no longer representing you, then you can likely get the entire contract voided on the grounds of unconcionability (i.e., it is so grossly unfair that it should not be enforceable).

You can talk to pretty much any lawyer for a free initial consultation and find out what type of case you have. Plus, many malpractice lawyers only get paid if you win your case. Before you do this, you'd better check with the rest of your family, especially her next of kin (husband or kids) to see if they agree with you.
Can I Do A High Profile Job (Lawyer,Doctor) Even If I'M Diagnosed With Nld/Nvld (Non Vocal Learning Disorder)?
I'M Really Desperate For My Future.
I Am Diagnosed With A Disability But That Isn'T An Excuse To Not Study, I Even Use The Advantages Of This Disorder To It'S Full Potential (Hence I'M Really Good At Theater And Oral Reading).
And I Get Moderately Good Notes--, Well Except For Sewing Where The Teacher Just Tells Us What To Do (Which I Can'T Seem To Form Like A Cryptic Puzzle, Annoying) And Gym (Well Not All Of It, Just The Motor And Teamwork Placed Sports Like Basketball, Soccer Etc).
I have NLD. I work in Education as a Substitute Teacher and Tutor. Working in high-profile careers is possible for people like us, just far more difficult.
What has really helped me is self-accommodating when possible. In my case, that means focusing on small group and 1-on-1 settings.
Ca Dui Laws??
Okay Lets Say You Get Pulled Over For A Possible Dui And You Ask To Go To The Hospital To Get A Blood Test Then You Get A Ticket (Never Go To Jail) Then The Dmv Calls You And Tells You Your Licence Is Going To Be Suspended But You Havnt Been Convicted Of Anything By Any Court. Does The Right To A Quick And Speedy Trial Apply? So Basically If You Dont Get A Trial Set In 45 Days Does That Mean That Your Chances Of A Dismissal Are Good... Thanks Ohh And I Dont Drink (Thank God) So Save The Dont Drink And Drive Comments
Agree with Mikeysco. In California, and in most states, DMV can (and does) take action against you regardless of any criminal proceedings. It's considered a civil matter between you and the DMV. You can request a hearing with the DMV (you usually only have about 10 calendar NOT business days to do so, so definitely get on it!), though they may charge a fee for that (depending on the state - in CA it's about $125). In that hearing, they'll review the evidence against you and you get to try and defend yourself. If you weren't convicted / no charges have been filed, and the blood test comes back low, there's a good chance you could get off, but it's not easy. There are two reasons why:
1. The DMV hearing is a teleconference conducted by a DMV rep who acts as the "judge" and also as the prosecuter. They admit their own agency's evidence against you into the proceeding and then decide if it's good evidence, which is just insane but it is what it is.
2. Civil matters are determine by a "proponderence of the evidence" instead of the more rigorous "by a reasonable doubt" (the criminal version). That means that they just have to decide that you were more likely to have been driving drunk than not (i.e. 51% chance you did it) which is really easy to do. If a blood test came back with any decent amount of alcohol in your system, there's almost nothing you can do - blood tests are the most reliable test to determine alcohol concentration so there's no room for questions about reliability (unlike breath tests which are known to be somewhat unreliable). And DMV can take your license for less than whatever the "legal limit" is (typically .08%). Meaning, if you had .05% or so, they can still take your license. Of course, a criminal court can do the same thing - they usually will try to charge you with a "wet reckless" instead of a DUI if it's below .08% but they will often try to charge you with a crime regardless, so the whole legal limit thing is a misnomer at best.
One thing is for sure, if you get pulled over with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system, you run the risk of both a civil / DMV legal case and a criminal case against you. It's the only situation where you get effectively prosecuted twice and the two cases (civil and criminal) have nothing to do with each other, so if one finds you innocent, it does not mean that the other will.
If you're really in this situation, I wish you luck because it's very messy.
