4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a legal representative at all, you must work closely together so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're planning to need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they have to help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in just about any crime, it's important in order to prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood 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 ought to win your case.

How To Find A Lawyer?
Best Bet Would Be To Start Flipping Through Phone Books, Right?
But What Type Of Lawyer Covers Suits To Newspapers And Can Protect My Assets Against Any Further Police Investigation.
(Vague I Know, But This Is Kind Of Complicated)
You're right, this is a pretty vague question, but I'll give it my best shot.
The fact that you mentioned a police investigation suggests to me that you probably have a criminal case on your hands, but it's difficult to say because the details were so vague.
If you're looking for a lawyer, the yellow pages is a good place to start, because you're guaranteed to find a local firm. Many credible firms are also listed online for your convenience. And if you're really in a rut, there are often lawyer referral services: Give them a call, and if you explain the basics of your case (maybe a little more detailed than what you mentioned here), they'll find a member lawyer who can assist you. Several lawyers are members of a referral service, including myself and all of my colleagues at our firm.
Once you have found a lawyer, arrange for an initial consultation to get a feel for how they see your case, and to determine if they are the right attorney for your case.(Most lawyers offer free 30 min to 1 hr consultation sessions). If you decide the lawyer is not what you're looking for, you can keep looking using this advice until you find the right attorney.
My Ex And I Decided On A Custody Plan. I Got All The Paper Work From His Lawyer In The Mail On Friday I Dont Completely Understand It All And According To His Lawyer I Cant Ask Him Becuase He Represents My Ex. I Talked To My Tax Lady Cause The Papers Say I Can Claim Her As A Dependent This Year And He Can Claim Head Of Household, But He Has To Have Her A Certain Amount Of Days To Do That, She Was Born In July And Resides With Me In October We Started The 50/50 Custody, My Question Is If I Called Like Legal Aid Or Some Place That Offers Free Lawyers Would They Sit Down And Explain Everything To Me I'M Not Looking For Someone To Represent Me, Just Look Things Over Cause I Dont Think Its Very Fair He Could Claim Head Of Household When She Was With Me Most The Year Until Half The Time This Month. I'M Just Confused. He Already Got Off Easy And Only Has To Pay 55 Dollars A Month In Child Support...Help!
It is true your ex's attorney cannot explain what the papers mean - that would be a violation of his/her cannon of ethics. You should definately call Legal Aid. They will likely give you legal advice, not tax advice, but they may be able to help you negotiate your position as head-of-household. Divorce will probably be one of the hardest things you will go through in life. Good luck and remember, this too shall pass.
What Do International Lawyers Do And, In General, How Much Are They Paid?

Is It Hard To Be A Lawyer?
Is It Hard To Be A Lawyer? If So Why Is It And How Many Hours A Week Do You Guys Work And How Much Do You Guys Get Paid A Year? Please Be Descriptive And Detailed To Be Chosen As Best Answer
Being a lawyer is hard work, generally for not a whole lot of pay, especially starting out. First you have to have a 4 year degree then you have to get into law school. Law school lasts 3 years and let me tell you, it is no walk in the park. After that you have to pass your states BAR exam which is probably the hardest exam you can take in the US. It is brutal. If you get a law job you can always expect to put in at least 60 hours a week. If you want a really well paying job, you will put in 80 hours a week. If you are top of your class you might get a good job out of law school, but if not you can expect to get about 40k starting out. There are A LOT of different types of lawyers. To really answer your question with any more detail would require that you say what type of lawyer you wish to be. One thing for certain though, if you want to be a lawyer you had better be a good writer. Like best in your classes in college kind of writer because being a lawyer is 98% writing.
Why Don'T Lawyer Charge Honestly Like 30 $ An Hour?
Lawyers Only Go To School For 3 Years After College, They Take A Bar Exam That Never Need To Be Taken Again (Most Of Them Are Not Even Board Certified) And Use Difficult To Verify Billable Hours To Earn An Income.
When A Legislature Payed By Tax Payer Legislate A Law, The Law Is Payed For By Tax Payer So The Lawyer Role Should Be To Help The Citizen Navigate Through The Laws. And Wining A Law Suit Should Be Based On Merit Only!
Just Like The Income Of Physicians And Hospitals That Are Regulated Why Can The Government Regulate Law Practice To 30 To 50 $ Per Hours . Their Education Background Is No More Than A Master Degree Level.
Bernie Madoff Appointed Trustee Thus Far Billed The Tax Payer Over 9 Million Dollars, Is This Ethical!

Once the lawyers in practice -he's got business expenses to pay: building. secretary, phones, computer equipment, research database/legal books, malpractice insurance, advertising, business cards etc.
In many areas of law - fees are regulated. For example, some states cap workers compensation attorney fees at 25%.
A bankruptcy trustee is paid a % of what he collects. Therefore, he has an incentive to aggressively pursue recovery of as much money as possible. If the Madoff lawyer has been paid 9 million that's because that is the % of what he's collected.
Many family docs charge $98.00 for an office visit. In that time - the doc spends less than 10 mins examining and speaking with you. But lets assume that the doc is slow - assuming that he see's 5 patients an hour at $98.00 per patient: his hourly charge is $498.00. So at $250 an hour = an attorney's fees are much cheaper and the attorney will spend more than 10 mins working on your case or discussing your legal matters.
I'm not saying there is not room for litigation reform. There is. But $30 an hour is unrealistic.
