4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional for any excuse, you have to work closely together to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - especially information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, each time. In reality, because you may need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing 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 neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Lawsit For Back Injury And Medical Records...Is The Insurance Company Entitled To All My Records?
I Was Injured(Back And Neck) By Someone Elses Negligence. Is Their Insurance Company Entitled To All Of My Medical Records, Or Only The Ones Pertaining To My Back/Neck Injury? I Dont Think Its Thier Business How Much I Weigh, My Blood Pressure,My Allergies, My Cholestorol, My Gyn History, Or Unrelated Medical Problems I Had Years Ago That Are Not Related To This Injury. Would My Medical Records Be Read In Court If It Went To Court? Would The Whole Jury Be Seeing What Type Of Birth Control I Use, How Long My Periods Last, Etc??
? I Will Also Add That My Atty Is A Friend Of My Family, I Would Prefer He Not See My Gyn Records Lol
Yes, they're entitled to ALL the records, to see if there's any possible way, your current claim could be related to a prior medical condition or injury. YOU don't get to pick and choose which records the insurance company can see.
No one will take YOUR word for it, that other medical records are irrelevant. Think about that!
You cannot win a lawsuit, in court, without those records being given to the judge, jury, and ALL involved parties. Of course, your COMPLETE medical records wouldn't be read in court - that could take MONTHS, if you see the doctor a lot! BUT, they will be reviewed in depth, by your attorney, and the insurance company's attorney, and any RELEVANT parts, in their opinion, would be presented to the court.
If you don't want your friend to see your gyn records, you need to get a different lawyer. He won't be able to represent you fairly, with only SOME information.
My Friend Is In A Really Bad Marriage Right Now Her Husband Has Been Known To Hit Her And Be Very Mentally Abusive. She Came By Today And Ask Me To Go To Her County And File For Divorce With Her Because He Has Been Taking A Flash Light And A Gun And Searching Every Inch Of The House Everyday Like Ten Times A Day. He Is On Drugs Or Something But She Cant Even Sleep So She Is Staying With Me For A While. What Would Be The Best Way For Her To Go About This She Is Scared That He Will Try To Come Over Here And Hurt Her And My Family. He Is A Pshyco Andvery Capiable Of It. So My Question Is What Should She Do And Can She File For Divorce In A Different County From Where They Live. Will A Restraining Order Really Work For Her If She Lives Here. Please Any Advice Would Be Great.
My advice is both for her safety and yours - monday morning, go to your police department and ask about filing an order of protection.. usually one can be filed at the courthouse and can be granted immediately.. at my courthouse there was a "legal advocate" who helped fill out the papers and stood with me before the judge. I was in and out with one in a matter of hours... Then she will need to go to the police dept where she lived, where she works, and any other places listed in the order of protection and have them make a copy of it to keep on file. She needs to keep this with her at all times.
Immediately she needs to contact a Women's abuse shelter (listed in the phone book) and go there.. they have security and a safe place for her.. trust me, these women know how to provide for her safety and to help her with counseling, and help her get back on her feet.
But, she needs to leave your home. I know it's harsh, but many times husbands fly off and attack the people that are housing the wife because in his mind, if you weren't there, she'd be home and it's your fault. You don't want us to read about your family on the news.. you've seen it yourself too often.. Be her friend.. but don't risk your family for her..
And, the women's shelter is experienced in how to help her with this.. Best of luck and you, your family, and your friend are in my prayers.
Can I Become A Lawyer In Ga, With A Felony ?
Hello I Was Wondering If I Could Become A Lawyer In Ga If I Had A Felony Back When I Was 21 (28 Now) In The State Of Va.
They Were 2 Class C Felonies For Having The Possesion Of Stolen Items. Would Any 1 Know?
Here is something I know a lot about...I had a criminal record when I became a lawyer...
Felonies make it harder...but they don't completely preclude it...I'm assuming that you haven't yet started law school, so you have some time to work on it...Here is my advice...
The first thing I would do is get a therapist...start going to "work out" your issues...whether you need it or not...this will be something you can tell the character and fitness committee...
In addition, volunteer....a lot....do a bunch of community service activities...and everyplace that you do these activities...get to know the people in charge...get them to like you so you can get references from them...again...this will help a lot later...
Finally...absolutely...pay any restitution that you haven't already paid...make sure that you keep your nose completely clean...vote in every election...
One last tip...if you can get those convictions expunged...do it...if not...that's okay...but it's better if they're expunged...
In any case, when planning your future, expect not to be licensed for at least a year or two out of law school...this means you're going to want to get employment that doesn't require a license...a clerkship or associate with a firm, etc...
Do I Need A Lawyer To Start A Small Business?
My Best Friend And I Have An Invention That We Want To Patent. It Is Fairly Unique And Uses New Technology, But I Do Not Want To Go Into The Specifics Until We Patent It. We Can Make The Product At Fairly Low Cost And Assemble It From Home Without Having To Hire Any Employees. We Also Have Our Own Website (She Is Computer Science Major) And What We Believe To Be A Good Marketing Strategy. We Have Enough Money To Make The Product And Pay For A Patent, But From What I Have Heard The Legal Fee For Lawyers Will Be Way Out Of Our Budgets. We Are Both Young (And In College) And Neither Of Us Want To Risk Going Into Debt If There Is Anyway To Avoid It, But We Do Not Want To Wait For Our Idea To Be Stolen By Someone Else Either.
So In Short After Getting A Patent Can We Not Simply Buy Material, Assemble, And Sell Our Invention Ourselves? Please Be As Detailed As Possible.
The first thing you should do is document your idea (ie. write it down). Not just a sentence or two. You should write something called a patent disclosure. It doesn’t need to be a novel, but take some time to think through some of the details, including how your device is made. And even if you can’t draw more than stick figures, make a few sketches. Ideally, this is done in a bound notebook with pre-number pages which are available in any office supply or stationary store. The written description should enable someone with expertise in the field, to make and use your product. Every time you work on your device, note it in your notebook, with dates. Update your notebook with new entries relating to any new developments, analyses, tests, results and descriptions of prototypes. Have at least one independent party witness your notebook entries with their signature and date.
When you are ready to file a patent application, hiring a patent attorney is probably your best bet. If you funds are limited, you can consider filing on your own. In addition, you may want to file a provisional patent application with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (www.uspto.gov). The provisional application fee is only $110. The provisional application will give you 1 year before you need to file a full application. So, it doesn't replace the application, just delays the expense of a full application. If you can afford it, it would be best to use a patent attorney for the provisional application as well. You can do it yourself but it is important that you prepare the application in the proper way and with good attention to detail. There are many books on the process. One good one; "Patent it yourself" by Pressman.
You may want to to find out if someone has already patented your idea. You can do some searching yourself for free at the USPTO search site: http://patft.uspto.gov/
If you find searching difficult or confusing, you can pay a patent attorney or patent agent (generally cheaper) to conduct a search, but that may cost several hundred to a few thousand depending on the area of your invention.
As for the rest of your project, you need some good advisors. Ask a business professor at your school for help or a reference if you don't know any business people. Good luck
Divorce Decree Wording Question?
It Says In The Divorce Decree That I Must Carry Health Insurance For My Ex Wife Until The Policy Terminates Or Insurance Becomes Available To Her. What Exactly Does That Mean? I Would Ask My Lawyer But God Knows How Much A Simple Question Would Cost Me. Can I Terminate The Policy When It Expires At The End Of The Year?
This type of situation only arises when there is a dispute on the division of wealth in a divorce and the wife is less financially endowed than you. It means that she has to have adequate medical and health insurance cover which she is presently obtaining under your cover say for family "husband wife and kids" which means that with the divorce she continues to get benefits from it, even though paid by you.. It is part of an alimony settlement. Option is to get her her own cover, and since it is in the divorce papers, you cannot terminate the policy when it expires because she is entitled to claim under it unless she has her own. Cheaper than a lawyer, more practical and within the law is her own cover :) You can get that clause legally set aside by mutual agreement with the wife through your lawyer, if she can support herself on the issue of health. The only time a lawyer is beneficial is when the partners no longer can talk to each other and money becomes a "supportive issue".
