4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To If you want a legal representative for any reason, you should work closely with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Listed below 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 - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - especially information one other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to assist them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each time. The truth is, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or even be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important so as to convince a legal court that you simply both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Need Serious (Quick) Help, Legal Question, Self Representation, Divorce And Child Custody?
This Is A Long Question, But Please Take The Time To Read It.
I'Ll Start From The Beginning, I Have Been Married For A Few Years, The Relationship Started Getting Very Rocky As Soon As He Moved Me Away From My Family And Surrounded Me With His, This Is When I Think He Felt Like He Had Me Trapped, I Was Married To Him, Pregnant With His Child And Away From Anyone I Knew. He Began To Be Very Controlling. We Have A Little Girl Now, Who Is The Light Of My Life, And Whom I Love More Than Words Can Possibly Express. Recently Some Of My Family Came To Live With Us, And Even Though He Didn'T Like It, He'S Scared Of Everyone Except Me And Never Had The Balls To Tell Them To Leave. I Have Been A Stay-At-Home Mom Since My Daughter Was Born, That Was A Decision We Both Made. I, However, Wanted To Go To School, My Husband Didn'T Like This Idea. When My Family Was Here Though, I Was Less Scared And Enrolled Myself In Ged Classes And Made Plans To Attend College. I'D Asked My Husband For A Divorce Before, And He'D Made It Very Clear That He Didn'T Want One And He Would Contest It. I Didn'T Have Enough Money For A Lawyer For A Contested Divorce, So My Plan Was To Stick It Out Until I Graduated In A Couple Years And Then Leave Him. I Never Had Access To The Bank Account Or Any Of The Money Other Than The Cash He Would Reluctantly Give Me For Groceries. He Became Very Uncomfortable When It Became Clear That I Was Serious About Getting My Education And Also Because I Now Had Someone Around To Stand Up For Me Other Than Myself. We Got In A Huge Fight And Again I Asked For A Divorce, He Again Said No, But Started To Drain Our Bank Account Of The Few Thousand Dollars We Had In There, Behind My Back And Unbeknownst To Me. He Hired A Lawyer, Had Some Papers Drawn Up, Including Divorce Papers, But Also A Restraining Order Against Me, Preventing Me From Having Custody Of My Daughter (On The Grounds That I Would Somehow Drive 400 Miles To The Rest Of My Family, With The Car That He Knew Had No Gas, But Then Not Have Enough Money To Provide Her With Basic Necessities Once I Arrived), All Of This Behind My Back. I Was Served These Papers On The 30Th Of Last Month, They Took My Daughter Away, And I Have Been Frantically Trying To Find Legal Help Ever Since. On The Restraining Order, It Said That I Have A Hearing On Monday The 13Th And That This Is Going To Be Held In A Town I'Ve Never Heard Of, About An Hour An A Half Away, Apparently There Is Only One Chancellery Judge In The Area And He Serves 7 Counties, I Guess This Was His Soonest Available Date. I Have Talked To Every Lawyer In Town (Which Is Only 3) But All Need At Least A Grand To Do Anything For Me. One Promised To Let Me Make Payments, But After Waiting A Week For An Appointment And Selling Things To Get The $150 Consultation Fee, Told Me That He Would Need Almost 2 Grand Up Front. I Tried Everything I Could Think Of To Get The Money, Called Everyone I Knew, But No Luck. There Is One Legal Aid Service In This Area, I'Ve Been Calling And Leaving Messages For Them Almost Everyday Since She Was Taken Away But So Far They Have No Returned One Call. I Went To Their Office And Was Just Given An Extension Number To Try On The Number I'D Already Been Calling, Left A New Message For This Person, Still No Return Calls, I Guess They Are Very Busy. I'Ve Tried To Obtain A Court Advocate, But The People In My County Won'T Drive That Far, And I Can'T Get A Hold Of Anyone In The County The Hearing Is Being Held In Until Monday, Which Is Obviously Too Late. So, It Looks Like I'M Going To Be Walking In There Alone, Representing Myself. I Have Two Family Witnesses That Have Seen Him Be Violent Towards Me, They'Ve Also Seen Him Be Extremely Neglectful Of My Child. I Have Pictures Of My Daughter'S Living Conditions Now (She Is Staying With My Husband And His Mother), Which Are Deplorable And Dangerous. I'Ve Called Dcs, But I'Ve Been Told They Will Not Investigate Since There We Are Involved In This Court Thing And There Is Really Nothing I Can Do About It. I May Be Still Able To Obtain A Picture Of A Bruise That He Left On Me, He Deleted It From My Phone, But I'Ve Been Told With The Right Software It May Be Recoverable (I'M Waiting On A Cell Phone Data Cable I Ordered To Arrive, Hopefully Sometime Today). My Case Is Very Good, The Problem Is, He Has A Lawyer And I Don'T. I Don'T Know What Kind Of Lies They Are Going To Make Up, And I Have No One To Question Him And Trip Him Up In His Lies. I Don'T Know The Legal Procedures For Submitting Evidence, Or Asking Questions, Or Anything Really. I Have No Court Experience. Even If You Don'T Have Much Law Knowledge, If You'Ve Been Through Anything Like This And Can Tell Me What It'S Like And What To Expect, I Would Really Appreciate It. If You Do Have Some Law Knowledge, That'S Even Better Because I Desperately Need It.
You are in a tough situation. It looks as though you may need to represent yourself.
Here's what you do.
1- Sit down and document the marriage from beginning until now. Write everything down, try to remember dates, names, places. Find as much evidence as possible, pictures, emails, texts, receipts.
2- Bring all the evidence you can to prove you are a good mother. EVERYTHING. All the things you own of your child's. All the information you know. Bring signed statements from your child's doctor, dentist, daycare provider, all attesting to your character.
3- Demand that an investigation be done into the living conditions of your daughter, and ask that a judge also investigate you. To show and prove you are a responsible person and there is no evidence to show otherwise.
Here's the deal, likely if you have no convictions of any kind, you will get your daughter back.
After that's dealt with. FIND A LAWYER. Go to legal aid. You can't do this without one.
Probate Attorney- What's The Cost / And Purpose? ?
How Much Does It Usually Cost To Use A Probate Attourney. My Mom Passed Away And Left Money To Myself And Sister. Is It Necessary To Use An Attourney Or Is An Accountant Ok? How Long Should A Inheritence Take To Settle Through Probate Court And How Can An Attourney Speed Things Up? Finally, If My Sister Is Executer Of The Estate , Would It Be Wise And Should I Alone Use An Attourney?
The length of time: almost always takes one year. Second, the cost of the probate lawyer varies with the size and complexity of the estate. Usually, "complexity" is defined by claims against the estate and the amount of assets to be included in the estate for tax purposes. The mortgage debt on your mom's home needs to be paid off before any distribution. I realize that your late mom have sold her home due to age or she may have a medical debt. There are multiple issues. Most important, I hope you and your sister work together to divide the physical property. That there is high level of compromise between you. If the estate is a 7 figure or a modest estate then the ability to settle between the two of you will vary if compromise is not exercised. The executor should have approx. 5 certified copies of the death certificate. The government grows more complex with each decade. "Be prepared" would be my motto. Sorry for your loss and I hope all goes well over the next year.

Oral Binding Contract? Lawyers If Possible.?
I Live In Florida, With One Of The Worst Housing Markets. I Have A Home That I Am Still Paying On. The Mortgage Payments Have Gotten To High For Me To Control So I Wanted To Sell It. Well I Found A Buyer. This Buyer Wanted To Rent The Place For A Year Then After The Year Purchase It. Well We Agreed But Nothing Was Signed. Well Thinking That Everything Will Go Through And Not Wanting To Sleep On The Street I Found An Apartment And Signed A 1 Year Lease To It. After This The House Went To Signing And They Backed Out Of The Deal. Now I Am Stuck Paying For An Apartment And My Mortgage. Is There Anyway I Can Fight This I Mean I Know It Was Stupid On My Part To Rent Out A Place But What Else Was I Suppose To Do? Is There Anyway I Can Sue Them Or Something? Please I Cannot Afford Two Places. Be Specific.
You can't sue them, they violated no contract, you suffered no loss. No loss that was their fault anyway. Even with a contract it is really hard to force a sale, there are lots of loopholes for buyers.
A Question About Legal Rights?
Ok Call Me Immature Or W/E But I Just Wanna Know What'S Legal And What I Can Do In This Situation.
Im Turning 18 In Less Than 2 Months. My Grandparents Are My Guardians, My Dad Isn'T. Alot Of My Stuff Is At My Dads, Which Ive Been Coming Over And Cleaning It Out Since I Don'T Live There Anymore And My Dad And Step Mom Are Moving Out. My Dad Doesn'T Care What I Take Since Everything I Own Is Pretty Much Teen Stuff N Stuff I Grew Up With, Which Obviously Shouldn'T Matter To Him.
But I Know One Thing We Might Possibly Be Feuding Over.. And Thats My Ps3 (Which Brings To My Top Sentence About This Question May Being Stupid And Immature Over A Dumb Ps3), But Honestly Im Only 17 And Im Not Gonna Spend $300 On A Ps3. Since I Already Know That When He Was My Guardian Everything I Owned Was His, But Now Since Hes Not My Guardian And Im Also Almost 18, Im Wondering If I Can Legally Take It.
Yes He Bought It, But It Was A Gift For Me For My Bday. So Im Asking If I Wait Till Im 18 Im Wondering If It Would Be Mine Since It Was Gift To Me? I Mean For Example If You Are Reading This And You Happen To Be Over 18, And Your Friend Buys You A Bday Or Xmas Gift, After A While Its Still Legally Theirs? No..
So Yea, Im Asking Can You Legally Take Something That Was A Gift To You At The Age Of 18 And Them Not Being Your Guardian Anymore?
Exercising your legal right is never a question of maturity... I'm a UK Law Student
I am uncertain as to exactly how it would work in the US, but I would imagine it is fairly similar to the UK. When he was your guardian, you are correct that he has a title to any of your property for you are his legal responsibility and any material thing assosciated with you therefore comes under his realm of legal responsibility. However, as soon as he is no longer your guardian, your possessions no longer become subject to his legal influence, they essentially are yours independent of him. As the intent of the PS3 was as a gift (if you were to move out in a years time, you would expect to take it with you) it would seem only reasonable that it is your proprerty and so can be withdrawn from his property at his convenience.
The period for which you resided with him, yet he was not your guardian, might permit you rights equal to that of a lodger (you are merely staying with him). In such a case, it would seem entirely unjust and unreasonable for the property owner to state a claim over the possessions of their lodger merely due to that fact that their possessions are located on that property.
Simple answer to you question... I would be very surprised if you couldn't justifiably take it.
How Do You Get Legal Assistance In Canada When Legal Aid Turns You Down For Assistance?
I Am Seeking Legal Assistance For A Drug Conspiracy Case. I Have Had My Lawyers Quit Because They Refuse To Challenge The Bogus Drug Evidence Being Used Against Me. We Have Proof Of Perjury Of Witnesses, Corruption Of Evidence And Numerous Illegal Acts On Behalf Of The Rcmp And Other Governments Agents.
You don't. Your own lawyers refused to work with you probably because you are so much smarter than them and know more about the law than they do. After all, they only spent years learning the law ... they weren't simply born with that knowlege as you were. You are not eligible for Legal Aid? Well, that's the way the cookie crumbles. Act as your own lawyer, you are bound to blow all those fakers out of the water. By the way, do you know who it was that said, "The person who acts as his own lawyer has a fool for a client"??
