4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want a lawyer at all, you should work closely together to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're planning to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to assist them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, whenever. In reality, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important so as to prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Info On Henry Lawson?

Henry Lawson

Henry Hertzberg Lawson was born on 17 June, 1867 on the goldfields at Grenfell, New South Wales. His father was originally a Norwegian sailor whose name was Neils Larsen. He changed his name to Peter Lawson and became a gold miner. His mother, Louisa (nee Albury) was a very independent lady and she had a great influence on Henry's life. Peter and Louisa had four other children besides Henry - Charles, Peter, Getrude and Henrietta (who died from an illness, in 1879). Henry went to school at Eurunderee and Mudgee but during the few years he was there, he was often picked on by the other children. At the age of nine, he developed an ear infection and became partially deaf. By the time he was fourteen, he was totally deaf. He had a very difficult childhood as the family were very poor. After leaving school early, Lawson helped his father on building projects. His first employment came as an apprentice railway coach painter in 1887, and he was often worried about missing work because he could not hear the alarm to go to work because of his deafness.

His parents separated in 1883 and Lawson moved to Sydney with his mother. In 1887, Louisa bought a newspaper called the Republican and it was here that Lawson's first writing was published. That same year, the Bulletin published Lawson's first poem and in 1888, it published his first short story, "His Father's Mate". On New Year's Eve, 1888, Lawson's father died. In 1890, Lawson travelled to Albany, WA where he wrote for the Albany Observer but returned in September, 1890 and travelled to Brisbane where he accepted a position on the Brisbane newspaper, the Boomerang, in 1891.

Between 1888 and 1892, Lawson published many of his most famous poems like "Andy's Gone with Cattle", "The Roaring Days" and 'The Drover's Wife". In 1892, Lawson walked from Bourke to Hungerford and back and it was during this time that he came to be very conscious of the hardships of bush life. Also in 1892, Lawson met up with Banjo Patterson, another famous Australian writer, to debate their views of life in the bush.

Lawson also worked as a shearer and lived with the other workers. He travelled to New Zealand for seven months where he also worked as a shearer. Offered a position with the Worker, Lawson returned to Sydney. When the Worker reverted to a weekly newspaper, he became first a provincial editor and then a contributor. In 1894 his first collection was published and Lawson met Bertha Bredt who became his wife in 1896. Bertha Bredt was the step daughter of Sydney bookseller and radical, W.H. McNamara as well as the sister-in-law of the politician Jack Lang. Lawson and Bertha had two children, their son Jim, was born 10 February, 1898 and baby Bertha in 1899. They travelled again to New Zealand where both Lawson and Bertha worked as school teachers at a Maori school at Mangamaunu near Kaikoura, in the South Island.

Lawson, always a heavy drinker, had struggled with alchoholism since 1888 but was not troubled by it during his stay in New Zealand despite the solitude. After his return from New Zealand in 1898 however, his alchoholism recurred. Lawson published two more prose collections but was becoming more disenchanted with Australia and in 1900, the family travelled to England, helped financially by Earl Beauchamp, the governor of NSW, David Scott Mitchell and the publisher, George Robertson. They rented a house at Harpeden, 40 km north of London. Lawson continued to write some of his best work in England but by 1902 decided to return to Australia because of financial problems and illness.

After his return from England on 21 May, 1902, Lawson and his wife separated and Lawson became increasingly unstable. Bertha and the two children moved into Bertha's mother's place when he failed to pay the maintenance to her and Bertha issued a summons for him because she was afraid of Lawson's behaviour. On 31 December, the magistrate ordered Henry to pay Bertha 2 pounds weekly. His mother Louisa also suffered mental problems after her publication "Dawn", a woman's magazine with a strong suffragette bias, finally closed in 1905. She died in the Gladesville Hospital for the Insane on 12 August, 1920.

Between 1905 and 1910, Lawson was regularly in prison for non-payment of maintenance and inebriation. He was also in mental and rehabilitation sanatoriums and gradually progressed into a pathetic, dissolute, alcoholic wandering the Sydney streets, begging for money for alchohol. He even tried to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff but survived despite serious injuries. His friends, J. Le Gay Brereton, E.J. Brady and George Robertson, came to his rescue and helped him financially.

Mrs Isabel Byers, who was twenty years older than Lawson, befriended him and constantly provided shelter and food for him from 1904. In 1916, his friends found him a position at Leeton, providing data for the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. Lawson continued to produce his works during the First World War and was well received. On 14 July, 1921, Lawson had a stroke but continued to write about his travels to London. Between 1920 and 1922, the government provided a pension for Lawson. On September 2, 1922, at age 55, Lawson finally died peacefully in his sleep while still writing and was given a state funeral on 4 September, the first writer to be given one. Henry Lawson remains one of Australia's most famous writers and his portrait is on our ten dollar note.

During his life, Lawson lived and wrote in widely different environments and had known life as a bush worker, house painter, telegraph linesman, journalist and rouseabout. Much of what he saw and experienced went into his short stories but his deepest feelings are revealed in his verse. Even in his earliest life, he was haunted by the impermanence of life and his poetry in his day was often criticised as being too melancholy. Lawson did not shrink from reminding people that they must face and endure their lives, although Lawson himself never lost hope.

Legal Or Illegal Life Insurance Policy?
My Friend Says It Is Legal And Accepted To Be Able To Take Out A Life Insurance Policy On An Adult Without Their Knowledge Or Signature And I Say That It Is Not Allowed.

Your friend has been watching way too many murder movies. In holywood it maybe legal, but in the real world it wont happen. Take your friend through this logic:

Insurance companies are all in the busienss of making money, like any other business. Would it be smart to issue policies (obligations to pay) without knowing anything about who you are insuraning? Things like health checks, drivers licenses, social security numbers are all needed to verify that the person is a true person. Other wise someone could theoreticaly take out a life insurance on a non existant person, then claim this person died one day after the contestation period (two years), and be paid the face amount of the policy! That is not a good way for the insurance company to make money... maybe for the person buying the policy, but not the insurance company.

Oh and by the way, there are federal laws against buying insurance on someone without their consent. There are Third party owned life insurance policies... these are very dangerous and most often scams. This is were someone has had a life insurance policy, and "sells" the policy to someone they don't know. there is a transfer of ownership, where the premiums are picked up by the third party, and beneficiary becomes the new owner. There is a federal look back period of three years when it comes to estate taxes, so if the person dies within three years of "selling" the policy the Face Amount of the policy is included in their gross estate. This can cause huge tax problems down the road. If anyone out here reading this is approached by someone who wants to buy your life insurance policy, beware!

Legal Rights Decrimination Against A Handy Caped Person?

It's discrimination if they're doing it because you are disabled.

It sounds like you need to talk to legal aid: They can help you find an attorney to talk to, even if you can't afford an attorney on your own.

You can also try contacting your center for independent living. Here's a resource for finding such a center near you. Part of the problem with the landlord may be communication. Many people don't realize the deaf communicate in a different language (different syntax and grammar) than the hearing. It's called ASL. A center for independent living might help you find an interpreter or other resources in the community.

If you feel you are being discriminated against because you are disabled, you can file a complaint with HUD. Here's info on how to do that:

You don't have to move out right away. In order to evict you, he will have to serve you with written notice and then file in court and you both appear before the judge to give your sides of the case. If the landlord has no legal cause to evict you, then the judge will rule against him. It's very important to get good legal advice on how to proceed. That's why you need to contact legal aid.

--- edited to add ---

Beware advice on the Internet. People will offer it whether they know what they are talking about or not. For example, several people mentioned the ADA, but the ADA only applies to housing if the housing is owned by a government, ie public housing, in which case you'd be dealing with the housing authority, not a landlord.

The correct law in housing cases is usually the Fair Housing Amendments Act.

Contact a real lawyer. You need real help to protect yourself. Call legal aid.

Maryland Child Labor Laws?
I Work At Tgi Fridays.. In Maryland It Says That As A 17 Year Old, 16 When I Got The Job, I Can'T Work For More Then 12 Hours A Day Including School And Work. Like Tonight I Went From School Til 825-245 And Then Work From 5-1130 Totaling More Then 12 Hours. They Over Work Me All The Time And Like Tonight I Got A 15 Minute Break Which Isn'T The Required 30 Minute Break For Working 5 Straight Hours. Is There Something I Can Do To Get Them In Trouble For This? The Only Thing Is That When I Got The Job I Remember Signing A Paper That Said I Wouldn'T Sue Them For Anything.

Restaurants are notorious labor violators, and Maryland in particular in my experience. And you are correct in that your employer is violating the rules because your combined school and work time is 12.8 hours, and yes they must give you 30 minute breaks, not 15.

And it doesn't matter what you signed: Your under 18 and therefore you cannot legally sign a binding document, rendering any such document worthless. Besides, there are rules that prevent employers from tricking or forcing employees into signing their labor rights away. Labor laws stand regardless of anything they make you sign.

First thing to do is point out this problem to your supervisor, and ask if they can trim your hours so it will comply with the rules. If they don't listen, try to move up to next level. If you get nowhere trying to assert your rights, report them to the MD Division of Labor and Industry (see link for contact info). The department rep will give you a summary of what they can do and how to it will affect you. Also note that "at-will" employment in Maryland has it's limits: They cannot fire you for asserting your legal rights according to the regulations.

While you could sue too, there may not be that much money you would be entitled to collect from them.
