4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you need a lawyer for any reason, you should work closely along with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important methods to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're going to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - especially information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they have to assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, whenever. Actually, because you may have to discuss last minute details or even be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important so as to convince the legal court which you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Should I Search For A Lawyer?
About Two Weeks Ago My Fiancé Was Verbally Reprimanded Because She &Quot;Uses The Restroom Frequently&Quot; Yet Her Boss Knows That She Has Medical Reasons As To Why She Uses It Often. Well, Today She Was Fired From Her Job And All They Told Her Was That She Was Not Meeting The Job Expectation. That Is It. There Is More Information That She Knows That I Don'T, Or Can'T Remember At This Time. But With That Alone Does Anyone Think We Should Be Looking Into A Lawyer? We Live In Los Angeles If That Makes A Difference. Advice Is Much Appreciated.
David, while it's unfair and not nice at all, I suspect they literally can fire her for going to the bathroom too often because her medical condition requires it.
Unless her medical condition is considered a disability, she's not in a protected class and might lose a law suit.
While I can't say I approve of the business's actions (and lack of tolerance and understanding), from their viewpoint they could be getting rid of someone who is not giving them 8 hours a day but 7.5 because of her needs.
That said, I'm not a lawyer. You can usually talk to one on the phone, explaining the situation and asking if you have a case, for no charge. I'd seek on who advertises that s/he specializes in employment or labor law.
Top 14 Law Schools?? ?
I Want To Attend A T14 Law School. For Financial Reasons I Am Attending Community College. I Plan On Transferring To Uc Berkeley In The Fall. Then Applying To My Choice Schools. Will The Admissions Look Down And Not Really Give Me A Shot Because I Started At A Community College?
Admissions will not look down on you because you started at a community college, particularly if you end up transferring to a high-caliber school such as UC Berkeley. Law schools will care much more about your GPA than where you got it, and they will care about your LSAT score more than your GPA (although having a low GPA will not really be ameliorated by having a high LSAT). For school in the T14, aim for a GPA of 3.6+ (the closer to a 4.0, the better), and an LSAT score of 170+ (172+ is even better).
Rather than worrying about the general "prestige" of your undergrad, if your aim is a T14 school, focus on creating a stellar applicant profile: high GPA, excellent LSAT, well-crafted essay and résumé, and stellar letters of recommendation.
Here are some additional thoughts about how you can create a solid applicant profile:
► Your personal statement. This is the creative essay you will write and include with your application. Many students write about why they want to attend law school; while this is definitely a worthwhile topic, it is not necessarily what you must write about. The personal statement is the one part of the application that you have complete control over, which is why it is also one the most important after your numerical indicators. It shows law schools your writing abilities, judgment in selecting a topic, and ability to engage an audience. The University of Chicago Law School has some great tips on what they look for and what to watch out for an avoid in a personal statement: http://www.law.uchicago.edu/node/1451
► Your letters of recommendation: I would say that these are second in importance to the personal statement, although they are certainly not unimportant by any means. The LORs allow law schools to hear others talk about your academic, personal, and extracurricular achievements and abilities. AdComs can tell a lot from your letters, what is written in them, and who wrote them for you. If it is obvious that you chose someone that doesn't know you at all, simply for the sake of having someone with an impressive title write your letter, then that speaks very poorly of you. If you chose someone who knows you extensively and wrote a glowingly positive letter filled with personal anecdotes, then that speaks highly of your choice. If you (God forbid) chose someone who writes a negative letter, then it calls into question your judgment. As you can see, it is not just about what's in the letter, but also what can be surmised from it that matters. A good letter should be lengthy, overwhelmingly positive, and filled with stories that only someone you have worked with closely would be able to write.
► Your résumé: This will tell law schools a number of things - What you were/are involved in, what you chose to showcase, how far you've risen within the leadership of any groups you are in, what you've done for employment, etc. It essentially tells the story of your life outside of the classroom. This is why it is important--it lets them have a glimpse into an area of your life that may not be addressed elsewhere (unless you choose to discuss a previous job or activity in your personal statement).
► Your transcript: Although your GPA will be the primary element that will be gleaned from your transcript, a number of other things can be surmised as well: Your major (and the relative difficulty of it), your grade trends (did they go up consistently? Did they start high and continue to stay elevated? Did they go down as you went through school?), and your course selection (is your transcript filled with elementary and introductory classes? Did you choose high-level courses?).
Although it is doubtful that any of these elements will hold as much weight as your GPA/LSAT combo, in the event that there are other qualified candidates with your same credentials (or in the event that you are a "splitter"--i.e., someone with a high LSAT but low GPA, or vice-versa), then these "softs" will play a much bigger role, and may even end up playing the determining role in your admissions decision, particularly if you're aiming for elite law schools.
I hope that helped! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Ok So My Parents Recently Got Divorced And I Have Some Questions.....
Info-My Dad Moved Out In To An Apartment And Took My 15 Yr Old Brother With Him.
Question-Is My Dad Allowed To Just Come Over Whenever He Wants? My Moms Lawyer Said She Isn'T Allowed To Change The House Locks But Am I Allowed To Call The Police? Isn'T It Technically Trespassing? He Doent Even Tell My Mom, He Just Shows Up An Goes Inside. He Eats Food Or Takes Something(Like Bowls)He Also Checks The Mail.
Question-My Brother Only Comes Over Once Every Other Week, Shouldn'T I Be Allowed To Have His Room?(It'S Much Bigger)He Shouldn'T Have A Say In It Since He Doesnt Live Here Anymore. My Mom Wants To Do It Too.
Question-Does A 15 Yr Old Boy Even Have A Say In Where He Wants To Live? Don'T The Children Have To Stay With The Mom Until They Are 18? Doesn'T My Da Have To Pay Child Support?(He Isn'T) My Dad Also Isnt Helping With Any Bills Which He Should Do.
Thankyou For Reading Plz Help!
I am assuming they are not divorced as yet or this would all be already sorted out, so more likely he has left and they are separated.if they are divorced then your dad has nil right to enter the house unless invited as being no longer married means he is a stranger in your mothers home.
If the home you live in is their joint matrimonial home and they are just separated then yes the lawyer is correct the laws says she can't change the locks many do or add another lock to stop the other person doing what your dad is doing, but the law says he has a right to go in his own house so unless he is abusive the law/police will do nothing. ( personally if I was your mum I would change the locks)
Your brother lives elsewhere, your mum decides if you have his old room or not, it is up to her, not your dad and not your brother
At 15yrs old of course you have a say, although it is something that your parents should decide along with taking your wishes into consideration and if they fight over you like a possession and are immature about it a judge will decide and it is what is in the best interests of the child the decision should be made.
If one child is living with your dad and one with mum then neither would pay child support they would each look after and support the one child who lives with them, however if your brother is over 18yr then your mum needs to apply to the court for your dad to pay child support for you, your mum could also ask for spousal maintenance, really depends on if she is working or not, able or not to get a job, which would then help with bills.
Really you shouldn't be worrying about all this your parents should be sorting all this out not you....
Specifics On Establishing A Parenting Plan In Washington State?
My 16 Year Old Has Never Had A Parenting Plan As We Were Divorced Before He Was Born. The Child Support Office Said I Will Have To Establish A Parenting Plan To Address His Post High School Support Issues. He Has Plans To Attend College And Will Graduate From Hs In 2011. Does Anyone Know If I Have To Hire A Lawyer For This, As I Don'T Have Much Money. Anyone Have Any Information On This?
This article will provide you with the info for filing and you do not have to have an attorney.~
A change in circumstances.
Paper work from Washington state court website.
Money for the filing fee.
Step1In Washington state, they want you to have a significant change in circumstances in order to change the parenting plan. For example, if your prior spouse is stalking you or has been using drugs, but wasn't before, you could get a parenting plan revision. If you don't have a change in circumstance, stop here. If not, go to step 2.
Step2Go to: http://www.washingtonlawhelp.org and download a parenting plan revision form.
Step3Figure out what you are asking to be changed. Be very specific and figure out why you think it should be changed.
Step4Gather up all of your evidence. If you are getting calls at all hours from your ex, print out a phone log. If you have kept a journal of your ex's bizarre behavior, make a copy for the court. If you have arrest records or anything else that would help your case, get that ready to file with the court. Get certified copies of what you can.
Step5Fill out the form and turn it into your local courthouse. It is 56 dollars if you file the revision in the place where your original plan was written up. It is 200 dollars or more if you file in a different county from where you had your first parenting plan. If you can't afford the filing fee, you can apply for financial assistance.
Step6Get your ex served with papers. You can do this with certified mail, personal service, or a process server. If you can't find the person, hire an investigator or look them up on intellius.com. You may have to leave them a legal notice in the newspaper which is very spendy. File proof of the person being served with the court.
Step7Sit back and wait. Your ex has 20 days to respond if they were served in person. They have 90 days to respond if served by mail. They have 60 days if they were served in another state. They have 20 days if served in your state with a process server.
Step8If the other party responds, prepare for trial. If not, go to the next step.
Step9If the other party does not respond, you automatically win by default. You will then need to file a motion for default form with the court. Be sure that you file this form before a year runs out or you will have to redo all of your paperwork.~
Hiring A Lawyers To Start My Small Business. What'S Best? Llc, Limited, Inc? Please Help!?
I Am Starting A Small Business And Just Spoke With A Lawyer. My Business Is A Lifestyle Consultancy And I Am Trying To Decide Which Would Be Best; And Llc, Llp, Limited, Corps., Inc, Etc. The Lawyer I Spoke With Said It Would Cost About $900 To Start The Business And That We Would Be Required By Law To Have Whichever We Choose; Llp, Llc, Etc On Our Company Website? Is This True?
I do not know if you would be legally obligated to list your company as LLC or Inc. or etc on your web site but it would be a good idea.
If you have the time and the desire to learn, all of your questions can be answered by searching online. Visit your Secretary of state office for starters.
If you are passionate about your new business, you need to learn as much as you can about corporations, LLC's and etc. It will be a very powerful tool for you down the road. You do not need a lawyer in order to form an LLC or a corporation or etc.
$900 is a lot of money you could put towards other expenses for your business if you have the time to learn and file the appropriate paperwork your self.
Maybe a first step would be to do a online search on the terms "LLC vs S-Corp" or "LLC vs Corp", if nothing else, this will give you more of an overview of the differences.
Question About Family Court.?
My Friend Has To Go To Family Court Tomorrow Because One Of Her Friends Ordered A Restraining Order On Her. She'S Really Worried. Who Is Allowed To Be In Court With Her? Does This Court Meeting Mean That The Restraining Order Is Definitely Going Into Effect, Or Will My Friend Have The Opportunity To Have Tell Her Side Of The Story?
Hi, When an order is issued, it is only a temporary order. A court date is set for a hearing to determine if the order should be made permanent. She will certainly have an opportunity to tell the court her side of the story. Tell her to make sure that she is respectful in the courtroom, that she states facts not feelings, and that she convince the court that she is not a threat to the other party. She needs to state that she does not want the TRO and that the Plaintiff is not in harm and that there is no credible threat and no future threat. Tell her not to be worried. This is not a criminal hearing. If she can prove that no abuse or harm was committed the order will be dropped. She can appeal if she wants. Restraining orders go both ways If the order is granted and the person who brought the order on her talks to her, calls her, or contacts her in any way, she can notify the police, show the Pro and the other person can be arrested. Unless the other party is in fear of their physical safety, it could very well be in their best interest to drop the order. It sounds to me like a little 'get even' may be going on here. JOSA
