4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you really need an attorney for any excuse, you must work closely along with them so that you can win your case. Regardless of how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Listed below are 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 - no matter what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should help them win. 3. Show Up Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, each time. The truth is, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any type of crime, it's important so as to prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Legal Advice- Immunity Using A Lawyer?
I'Ll Try To Make A Long Story Short.. If It Helps, I Live In Michigan (Not Sure If Laws Involving This Are Federal Or State)
The Story: I Was Charged Back In August For Assault.. The Day That It Happened, I Flead From The Scene, And Went To My Dads House To &Quot;Hide&Quot;. They Knew Exactly Where I Was.. They Showed Up About 15 Minutes After I Did. They Knocked On My Dads Door, And Smelled Marijuana. That Night I Went To Jail For Assault (Not Involving My Dad). The Very Next Day, The Officers Got A Search Warrant, Went Back To My Dads House And Found An Ounce Of Weed In The House, Along With 12 Pot Plants In His Back Yard. Thinking That I &Quot;Set Him Up&Quot;, My Dad Told The Officers It Was All Mine, Thinking He Wouldnt Get Charged With It. Needless To Say, He Got Charged Anyway, For Possession. A Month After His Sentencing, They Came After Me. Instead Of Possession, They Are Trying To Charge Me With Marijuana Manufacturing, Which Is A 4 Year Felony, And Not A Misdemeanor Like His. Anyways, The Only Evidence They Have In This Case Is My Dads Police Report Stating That Its Mine.
The Facts: I Currently Have A Court Appointed Attorney, As Most Of You May Know Is Total ****. He Has Stated If I Bring It To Trial, I Would Lose Since I Cannot Prove Anything. But This Is Not My Question.
My Question: My Dad And I Have Made Ammends, He Is Very Sorry About What He Said, Obviously.. He Has Already Been Charged, He'S Almost Off Probation From It (He Got 6 Months). He'S Not Worried About Getting Charged Again, Since Its Double Jeopardy Etc. He Is Worried About Coming To Court And Stating Something Different Then The Police Report. I Did Some Research, If He Were To Get Charged With A False Police Report, The Crime Is That Of The Charge. Which Would Be A Felony.
In The State Of Michigan, Found Here: Http://Www.Legislature.Mi.Gov/%28S%28Rwcybmi4xivkn1nzwp3a2x55%29%29/Mileg.Aspx?Page=Getmcldocument&Objectname=Mcl-750-411A
I Have Already Discussed With My &Quot;Lawyer&Quot; About My Dad Obtaining Immunity, Which Would Free Him Of Any Prosecution, He Has Stated That Only The Prosecutor Can Offer Immunity, And In A Case Such As Mine, There Is No Chance In Hell He Would Do That, Seeing As It Would Help Me And Not The Courts. They Obviously Want A Conviction. I Have Heard From A Few People (Which Is My Ultimate Question), That By Using A Lawyer To Make A Statement In Court, And If You Remain Silent, They Cannot Prosecute You For Anything The Lawyer Says. However, Someone Else Has Told Me, That They May Not Be Able To Prosecute You For What You Say In Court, But If The Police Report Were To Be Found False In Any Way, Shape Or Form, That They Can Go Back On The Police Report And Charge You Separately That Way. So My Final Question I Guess Is, Is There Any Loopholes, Or A Way That My Dad Can Come Into Court And Tell Them I Had Nothing To Do With His Plants Without Facing A Prosecution For A False Police Report? We Are Both Caught In A Catch-22..
"I have already discussed with my "lawyer" about my dad obtaining immunity.... I have heard from a few people"
Public defenders are, almost without exception, the most experienced trial lawyers in any jurisdiction. In addition, because they are up against the same DA's, in front of the same judges, every day, they know what DA will go for what plea bargain, or under what circumstances he will offer immunity.
I can guarantee you that his legal knowledge and advice is better than what you'll get from people whose knowledge is based on the fact that they've been caught themselves in the past.
"He has ALREADY been charged, he's almost off probation from it (he got 6 months). He's not worried about getting charged again, since its double jeopardy etc."
Wrong. It isn't double jeopardy, and he can be charged with a different crime from the one he was already charged with. If he'd been acquitted on the possession charge, or charged with manufacturing and acquitted, trying him again on those charges would be double jeopardy.
Now, normally a DA must charge all crimes arising from the "same series of bad acts" at one time. This would usually mean that he couldn't charge your father with possession, then come back later and charge him with manufacturing. BUT... When the decision not to charge a more serious crime was based on the accused's own untrue statements, that is an exception to that rule.
Because the DA decided not to charge him with manufacturing based on his testimony that the plants were yours, if the DA becomes satisfied that he lied, and the plants WERE his, the 'same series of bad acts' rule is waived, and your father can be charged with the manufacturing. (AND the false police report)
Your father cannot testify at your trial through a lawyer so as to avoid having to perjure himself, or avoid admitting that he perjured himself in the police report. "You" cannot be required to testify at your own trial, and under some circumstances you can have your lawyer make a statement. however, a lawyer cannot make a statement that he knows, or believes, to be false.
If the DA wants your fathers testimony then he will subpoena him, and put him on the stand. Once there he has three choices.
1) He can testify that the plants were yours. With your own father telling the jury that, you'll probably be convicted.
2) He can admit that they were his. If the jury believes him, you will likely be acquitted. The DA will then almost certainly charge him with manufacturing, and probably with the false police report as well.
3) He can take the 5th, and refuse to testify on the grounds that his testimony might incriminate himself. The DA will introduce the police report as a prior inconsistant statement, since it did 'not' incriminate him. The jury might then convict or acquit, based on what they believe is true.
Be aware that if he takes the fifth, then even if you are convicted, nothing stops the DA from deciding that the two of you were both involved in growing the plants, and charging him anyway.
You are right about one thing, though. The DA wants a conviction. He most likely doesn't really care whether he hangs the plants on you, or on your father, so long as he gets one of you. He's not going to allow you to get off on the basis that the plants were your Dads without then hanging them on him.
Do You Think That People That Have A Dwi Arrest Are Generally Sketchy Or It Depends On Other Circumstances?
I Had One 10 Years Ago, Right Out Of College. Since Then, I Have Gotten An Mba And Earn Six Figures In A Corporate Job And Have Two Kids And A Wife. I Rarely Have More Than One Drink A Week As Getting Drunk, To Me, Was Just A &Quot;College Thing&Quot;
In A Case Like This, Am I A Sketchy Person?
Is This A Really Bad Thing, Could It Be A Problem In The Future, As Far As Climbing Further Up The Corporate Ladder?
your dwi and your success have nothing to do with each other.
one would think that with all that education you should know the answer to your own question. in fact if you were paying attention in your dwi classes you would know that a dwi can happen to anyone AND you don't even need to be drunk to get one.
your one drink a week can land you in the hooskow just as quick. all it takes is one drink to get you a dwi if you are involved in ANY kind of accident (even if it is not your fault it will suddely become your fault) you don't even need to be at .08 to get a dwi. .01 will do it if there is an accident involved.
so no it does not mean a person is sketchy. it can and does happen to everyone. including the cop who got pulled over in roseville california the other day. yup got his just desserts
Need Legal Advice In Real Estate Law?
We Just Purchased A Home And Property In Kentucky And The Previous Owners Have Not Turned Over The Keys To The Home To Us. They Have Moved And Are Residing In A New House, They Still Have A Few Things In An Outbuilding. We Need To Know If We Can Go Ahead And Legally Enter The Premises Without Having A Key?
I'm not a lawyer, so this isn't legal advice. For legal advice, you need to consult with a lawyer. However....
If you purchased the house, it's yours. You don't need a previous owner's permission to enter the house or the outbuilding. (From reading your question a few times, I'm guessing that you didn't get the keys to the outbuilding, not the primary residence.) It's your property. You can do as you wish.
As for the items in the outbuilding, that's a slightly different issue. Again, I'm not a lawyer. However, if the items in the outbuilding were not addressed in the sales contract--if the sales contract didn't mention them at all--then those items transferred with the property.
If the items were addressed in the sales contract--let's say it's a lawnmower and the sales contract either said that the mower did convey or did not convey--then you go by the sales contract. That more frequently occurs with things like drapes, lighting fixtures, and appliances.
As a courtesy, you might contact the sellers and request that they remove any items from the outbuilding. However, as I said above, unless the sales contract specifically states that the items did not convey, then you own them and can do with them as you wish.
Again, for legal advice, check with a lawyer.
Hope that helps.

Not As A Joke But An Intelligent Answer... What Is Trust??
Simple But Complicated Question.. What Is Trust??
Trust is worth the wait, is worth the work. it is having faith in one person and your self, it is about be able to tell someone
anything without fear or hesitation, it is about openess without doubts, it is about respect. it is reliance, and loyality, it is easy to
loose and hard to gain or earn, it something relieved in some but not others, it is something welcomed into relationships of all kinds,
it comes without questions though people question often, without trust would not be the connection amongst family members,
best friends, and partners. Trust is something human nature desires unwillingly trust must come with yourself first then others. trust
is powerful surpassed the define.
