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.

Business Studies To Become A Lawyer?
Umm, Well I Want To Become A Lawyer, And I Said I Wanted To Do Business Studies For My Gcse. My Sister Said It Was Important To Be A Lawyer, And Almost Every Person That Didn'T Take Business Studies Wish They Did It... Is It That Important?! =O
Business is a good major for any field, legal or otherwise. If you don't have a business major, at least a business minor would be a big help.
Most people I know who go to law school were either business or history majors.
Are Lawyers In Canada Subject To Regular Drug Testings?
I'M Looking To Become A Lawyer But I Smoke Marijuana And I Was Wondering If Lawyers In Canada Have To Go Through Regular Drug Screenings.
And If They Do, How Often?
No. There's no required drug screening. It is conceivable that, if you ended up in disciplinary proceedings, conditions on continued practice could include drug screenings (specifics would vary by Province), but this is not the default scenario - essentially, until somebody has a reason to believe that you're on drugs and they're causing a problem, there would not be any such tests.
About the other answerer saying that a Court can order it for no reason...no. Firstly, Courts don't typically concern themselves overly with disciplining lawyers. That isn't to say that a judge won't call out a lawyer who isn't all there - most often it's alcohol-related - but the judge will do so without feeling the need to order a test. It would be arguable as to whether or not a Canadian judge has the power to order such a test even with reasonable and probable grounds, but even if it could be ordered - by a judge or by the Provincial Law Society - it would most certainly not be something that could be ordered with "no reason". That would raise serious Charter issues.
In the employment context, it's a little different. Employers can, under certain circumstances, require employees to undergo drug testing. But that's contractual in nature; an employee is entitled to refuse, though - in the situations where the employer is so entitled - that would be just cause for dismissal. A judicial order to undergo a test is not something that can be declined (thus, there would be tests to be satisfied under the Charter before such an order could be made), and there's no proviso in any Provincial Law Society's regulations that I've seen for administrative random drug testing as a condition of maintaining one's license. I could envision a Law Society making it a condition of continued practice that lawyers submit for random drug testing (this avoids the Charter concerns by offering a way out)...but such a provision simply isn't there, and if it weren't truly random, then a duty of fairness would apply in the decision-making process leading up to the testing, which is why "no reason" is absolutely out.
Frankly, you wouldn't be the only one. Alcohol does tend to be a lawyer's demon of choice, but when I was in law school I played on a softball team with other law students, several of whom would periodically vanish during at-bats and come back with a rather distinct scent on them...suffice it to say we weren't a highly competitive team.

Help With Family Law!?
What Is The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act And Has Your Jurisdiction Adopted It? What Are The Legal Requirements Of A Valid Prenuptial Agreement In Your Jurisdiction? What Factors Can Invalidate A Prenuptial Agreement? Should Prenuptial Agreements Be Compulsory? What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Prenuptial Agreements?
Someone Please Help Me!
UPAA was created to help make uniformity across the states with regard to antenuptual agreements. In Indiana, for example, the UPAA was adopted and codified into law as Ind. Code Sec. 31-11-3.
I don't think prenuptial agreements should be mandatory, but they are a very good idea. They save a lot of expenses in the event of divorce and save the parties from inequitable distribution of property in the event of a divorce, particularly for property and assets acquired before the marriage.
A valid pre-nup does not require consideration in most jurisdictions - just signing, in good faith, by both parties. They can be invalidated or attacked in the same way any contract can (made under duress, fraud in the inducement, etc.)

How To Find Out My Ex Husbands Attorney He Has Hired Regarding Our Child Support Case?
My Ex Husband Won'T Tell Me The Name Of An Attorney He Has Retained In Regards To Our Child Support Case. He Says He Won'T Tell Me The Name And Has Threatened Me With A No Contact Order If I Ask Him Anymore. I Know I Have A Right To Know In Case He Decides To Go To Court. I Have No Monetary Means Of Hiring An Attorney So I Believe I Have A Right To Know. What Are The Steps In Finding The Name? Thank You.
He's lying to you. He's playing you, and you bought it.
Any lawyer worth hiring would tell him to not hire a lawyer. If he does hire a lawyer, that's fine, because it won't matter at all. At least if you live in the us.
Child support is figured on a formula. The best lawyer can't change that.
I'm sure of it. The reason he won't give you the name is because he's lying.
Addition. You don't need to hire a lawyer either. Child support is a formula. It's set. So there's really nothing to argue about. Unless you think that he's going to try to hide income. But really, you can probably find out his true income as well as a lawyer can.
One more thing. No decent lawyer will go along with an attempt to hide income. I suppose there are some sleezy lawyers who might do it.
I Have To Go To Court On Tues For Unpaid Credit Card Bills. Should I Seek Legal Services?
In The Summons It Says I Can Go To Legal Services Beforehand If I Can'T Afford An Attorney. I Have No Job, No Money, No Bank Account And Absolutely No Way Of Paying These Bills. Is It Worth My While To Go? How Can Legal Services Help?
Yes, you should seek free legal help.
Please don't make the mistake of not showing up in court because you have no job, money or no way to pay. Don’t be a no-show in court under any circumstances whatsoever. People often make the huge mistake of not showing up because they think they’d loose anyway or because they can’t afford an attorney. Not showing up is the worst thing you can possibly do. Even if you are frightened....or you're sick with a 102 degree fever...or if you think that you'd loose, show up anyway! If you don't, the other side will get a default judgement and they will get this on THEIR terms. They will tack on all sorts of add-on fees and the amount of the judgment could end up being two or three times the actual amount of the debt.
Bring complete documentation of your living expenses and evidence that you are unemployed. Pay stubs and copies of bills. Sometimes you can get a very sympathetic judge, and he/she might refuse to grant a judgment and will tell you and your creditor to work it out yourselves. Even if the judge grants a judgment against you, you can get much more agreeable terms by showing up and explaining your hardship case.
Or....you can stay at home on the day of the court and watch cable tv instead...and the judge will grant a judgment against you that can be 2 to 3 times the actual amount of the debt.
