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.

I Am Looking For An Attorney To Sue A Health Insurance Company On A Contingency Basis?
My Health Insurance Company Haa Falsely Deemed A Procedure That I'Ve Had 2 Years Ago A Pre-Existing Conidtion. My Medical Provider Is Now Suing Me And They Won'T Pay.
I Am Unemployed And Cannot Afford An Attorney On An Hourly Basis. Is There Is Anyone Out There Who Will Take My Case On A Contigency Basis?
OK, let me just tell you right off the bat - if you can't find an attorney to take your case on a contingency basis, it's because either you have a VERY weak case, OR, your case isn't worth enough money for his 40% to make it worth his while.
And a few other things . . .regardless of insurance, you are ALWAYS responsible to your medical provider, for services you contracted, whether the insurance pays or not. Your provider is going to win this lawsuit. They'll garnish your wages, if you ever get a job again, and attach your assets, until the debt plus court costs plus interest is paid off, or until you file bankruptcy.
Without having any details on the condition or the preexistance, I'd just like to point out, that many people are under the mistaken impression that "preEXISTING" and "preDIAGNOSED" are the same thing. They aren't. If your condition existed - whether or not it was diagnosed officially - before you purchased the insurance, it IS preexisting.
The way to AVOID preexisting condition problems, is to NOT go without health insurance. If you have had health insurance for 10 years before buying this policy, it wouldn't have been a problem. But, many, many people WAIT until AFTER they have symptoms to buy the insurance, and lie about not having symptoms, and try to pretend that it's not preexisting. Then, when they get caught (because the doctor says the condition took at least six months to develop, or whatever), and the insurance company denies the claim, they get all bent.
About What Does An Attorney Charge?
Estimate On What An Attorney Would Charge To File Like Motions, Continuances And Objections To Motions For Court? Does An Attorney Normally Charge Per Item Filed In Your Case? About How Much Does An Attorney Charge To Do This?
Fees vary pretty widely. Lawyers should be very up front about their fee structure before beginning to represent you.
Typically, there are a few kinds of fee structures, Hourly fees, Hourly fees with retainers, Contingency fees, and Flat fees.
Hourly fees can run between around $125-300 depending on the experience level of the lawyer or the firm he or she works for.
Retainers are large advance sums paid to a lawyer to guarantee his availability. When work is needed hourly fees are deducted from the retainer. Typical retainers are about $3000.
Contingency fees are payments from whatever a lawyer is able to recover for you in a lawsuit. Typical amounts are between 20-30%.
Flat fees are per item fees, and can vary depending on experience level and complexity of the project.
Sometimes lawyers will charge more for specialized work, such as actually conducting a trial (i.e., 20% contingency fee in settlement, 30% in jury verdict). Also keep in mind expenses such as attorney travel will also be added to your fees.
You can find local attorney listings by contacting your county or state bar association, which should have a website and hotline as well as looking at organizations like findlaw.
Is It Legal For Insurance To Take My Check From Insurance After Wreck?
I Had A Wreck A Couple Weeks Ago And Told Me I Could Come Pick Up My Check Today From Insurance. When I Got There To Fill Out The Paperwork And Pick Up The Check They Told Me It Wasn'T Ready And That They Will Have To Send It To The Car Dealer (Express Credit Auto) So They Can Take Out What I Owe And They Give Me Whats Left Which I Do Not Have A Car Now And The Check Was To Get Me Another Car, Which I Told Them And All They Said Was To Use What Is Left To Get Another Car By Them. Which I Just Want My Check So I Can Get My Car, I Told Them I Will Still Be Paying My Bill For The Car But They Then Said It Is Illegal For The Insurance To Give Me The Check When They Hold The Lien To The Car. I Don'T Know What The Legal Side Is, Can Anyone Help Me??
Yes, if your car is totaled, and the title reflects a "first secured party of interest," that means the car is collateral on a car loan. And the insurance company is required to protect their interests.
Sometimes they will send one settlement check with two payees listed, and sometimes they will issue two checks, one to you and the other to the loan company. To do that, they would need to contact the loan company to get the pay-off balance on the loan.
You need to find out what the pay-off balance is today on your car loan, and compare that to the amount of the settlement proceeds. You will get any money that is in excess of the pay-off balance on the car loan. If the pay-off balance is MORE than the settlement, then you get nothing. In that case, we would say you are "underwater" on your car loan.
If you are "underwater," then check and see if you have any GAP insurance to help you.
How To Waive Property Damage And Personal Injury Liability For Minors.?
If I'M A Minor, And I'M Doing Small Jobs (Lets Say, Hanging Christmastime Lights For A Neighbor) And I Want To Protect Myself From Them Suing My Parents Or Me For Any Damages That May Occur, Or Protect Them From Having To Pay For Any Self Injury That May Occur To Me Wail I Am Working, Is There A Waiver Or Contract Of Some Sort That Can Protect Me And My Client From Both Of Those Things Without Having To Pay For Insurance?
Much Appreciated :)
Yes. You can have them sign a waiver saying as much. Also, fun fact, parents are not liable for the torts (personal injury or property damage) of their children. Generally these are drafted by lawyers, but for something small like this, you can simply write a note that says the above and have the client sign it. Unfortunately, as a minor, you cannot legally waive harm that may come to you because minors cannot bind themselves to a contract.

Can A Juvenile Be Convicted With Only A Confession He Mad As Evidence?
Can A Juvenile Be Convicted Of A Crime If He Said He Did It In A Interview And Then Said He Didnt Do It With The Confession As The Only Evidence
Juvenile law is different from adult law in that no jury hears the case and judges the defendant. Juvenile cases, unless the kid is being tried as an adult, are heard only by the judge, and the judge decides the case and the sentencing. If a kid confesses something, and then retracts the confession it would be up to the judge to decide if the confession was accurate, or perhaps coerced, in which case the confession may not stand.
