4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want a legal professional for any excuse, you must work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most importantly information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they have to assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, every time. The truth is, because you may want to discuss last second details or be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important in order to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Now.. Exactly What Does This Have To Do With Making Health Care More Affordable?
Trial lawyers are one of the biggest lobbyists for the left. Trial lawyers make their money with outrageous verdicts, which is why trial lawyers don't want tort reform. It will eat into their wallets which would limit their ability to contribute to campaigns and lobby in DC.
So, lets review. Money is the real reason why dems won't reform our current tort laws...now who is the party of the rich?

Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
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)
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.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
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.
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..................

Need Help With Legal Advice?
Some Guy Who Is A Representative Of &Quot;The United Educators, Inc.&Quot; Shows Up At My Door Trying To Sell The Encyclopedia Books To Me. At The Time, I Was Actually Interested In Getting This Set Of Books. Afterwards, I Sign The Contract. Well, I Later Realize That I Changed My Mind About The Books And Wanted To Cancel The Purchase. I Contact Them About 5 Days Later And Somehow, They Have A Rule That I Had To Cancel Within 3 Days Of The Purchase. I Wasn'T Notified Of This And Then They Say It Was In The Contract. I Look And It Was In The Back Of The Contract. I Never Looked In The Back Of The Contract As It Didn'T Say Anything On There To Look In The Back About The Cancellation Process.
Yes, I Understand That It Was My Wrongdoing For Not Looking Through The Whole Contract And Reading It Thoroughly. Well, I Haven'T Received The First Book, They'Ve Already Taken A Payment From Me, And The Arbitrator Of That Company Threatens Me And Says That I Have To Pay Monthly On These Regardless If I Want To Return The Books (If And When I Receive Them). Which Doesn'T Make Sense. I Mean, You Can Buy A Car, Get It Financed And If You Change Your Mind Within A Certain Amount Of Days, You Do Get Penalized A Bit But You Don'T Have To Worry About Paying $15,000 Or What Have You On The Vehicle If It'S No Longer In Your Possession. Also, I Signed This Contract Under My Name And My Husband'S. He Is Currently Deployed And I Have Only Certain Poa'S For Him But Nothing With Using His Name For Opening A Line Of Credit Whatsoever. The Guy Said It Was Fine To Sign It Without The Poa, So I'M Thinking.. Was I Scammed? Can I Use This Against The Seller?
I Feel As Though I Was Cornered On This And Don'T Know What To Do. Anyone Have Advice For Me?
Let me preface that I'm not an attorney so I can't quote legal advice and I'm sure most attorneys will same the same thing so they are not sued. Moving on, The common window for Right of Rescission is typically 3 days with anything. This is the period of time you can withdrawl from the contract without penalty. Some companies off longer like the cell phone companies that allow 14-30 days. In your case, even if he did not go over the entire contract, as long as it's printed, your stuck. On the other hand, is there anything included about a breach of contract fee? This is similar to when you sign on with a utility for a year and cancel early. It's usually the equivilent of 1-3 payments. If not, you then could look at what method you are paying with. If it's being withdrawn from a checking account or debit card, simply file a dispute for non-authorized withdrawl with your bank and start there. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. If you're payment through your credit card, same thing, file a dispute. If that doesnt work, you could ask the bank to close that account and open new one and you have charges that the creditor will not stop.
Regarding the POA, it would specify what authority you are given to do for your husband while he is away.
Lawyer Question About A Personal Injury Case?
I Have A Lawyer Who Just Sent Me A Letter Tell Me That He Will Not Be Able To Work On My Case On A Contigent Basic Fee. It Also Told Me To Seek Another Lawyer If I Think I Have A Case. What Should I Do. Do I Have To Pay The Next Lawyer.
If you already paid the lawyer a retainer fee I guarantee they will send a bill that covers that exact amount so any money you already paid is gone. If they agreed to a contingency fee and now are telling you this it is because they feel your case has a less than 99% chance of winning or being settled. They only take cases they feel they will win. If they are advising to go elsewhere then your case may be a dog. You may get the same answer from the next lawyer but its worth a try, don't tell them about the first lawyer.
I love lawyers. They say if you pay then it is a good case but if they pay and want paid back through your winnings it is suddenly a dog. Good ethical people.
Child Support And Custody Rights?
I Never Went To Court With My Ex To Decide Custody Or Child Support Of Our 2 1/2 Year Old. There Are Different Problems That Keep Arising, And He Is Very Rough With Our Son. They Play With Swords And He Teaches Him Karate, Both Of Which I Think He Is Too Young For. I Now Want To Seek Custody Of My Son, And Get Child Support, But I Have No Clue How To Go About It. What Are My Chances Of Getting Custody If My Ex Is 20 And Still Living At Home With No Clue What He Wants To Do, But He Does Work, And I Am In University, Not Working, But Engaged To A Man That Is In The Air Force? And How Do I Go About Filing For Custody And Child Support?
the only way correct to go through this is with a lawyer; you'll also fair better with a lawyer;; the courts don't care about the miniscule bickering between parents about who's parental style is 'best"; the courts are concerned about the child's right to have both parents present in his/her life, in spite of what ONE parent may 'feel'; IF you are the primary caregiver of this child, chances are that this situation would not change; but your ex has every right to ask for visitation, joint custody, shared parenting;; your presentaion on lifestyle re: married or not can be beneficial & detrimental in both ways;; the fact that he is working while you are not can mean different things to different judges..so, again, 'painting a picture' is the least of their concerns; they truly want the parents to get along, compromise, & work together to raise this child;; if ya can't decide between the 2 of you, they do;; another thing, custody & child support are usually dealt with together ONLY on the first court hearing to 'balance things out' between the 2 ex's (the courts sorta use this as a tool to demonstrate compromising);; they are not taken care of in the same court system, they are separate altogether..good luck, not easy, but you may be better off without the courts if the 2 of you can handle it;; but honestly, ya can't tell him how to raise his son, nor can he tell you..best you can do is compromise for your child's future...if you 2 are not on the same page, expect your child to demonstrate the repurcussions..ya can't force someone to do things your way...be careful & good luck!!
