4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want a lawyer for any excuse, you must work closely with them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies 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 planning to reveal for them. Privilege means whatever you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to help them win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, whenever. The truth is, because you may want to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Question For Employment Lawyers About Wrongful Sexual Harassment?
As Of Tuesday 8/18/09 I Was Suspended From Work For Serious Charges As My Boss Put It. Yesterday I Reported To The Office For A Conference Call With The Head Of Human Resources And Found Out The Charges Were About Sexual Harassment On An Associate I Work With. So Here Is My Story. There Is An Associate I Work With As I'Ve Mentioned Above. She Has Accused Me Of Making Sexual Advances Toward Her,If Not More In The Work Place. She Says She Has 4 Witness' That Witnessed These Events At Work. Although From Personally Being There,None Of These Witness' Were Ever Around When She Spoke To Me When Passed Through That Area On A Patrol Or To Respond To A Call In That Area. As Of Lately,Rumors Have Spread Very Quickly Through The Store About The Two Of Us Having Sex,Me Being Obsessed With Her,Constantly Asking Her Out On Dates,And The List Goes On. So I Began Ignoring Her And Any Calls She Made Completely. Soon After,It Got To The Point Where Whenever She Ran Into On Patrol,She Would Ask Questions Like,Have I Done Something Wrong To You?, Why Don'T You Talk To Me?, What Happened To You And Why Have You Changed? I Have Reported Every One Of These Incidents To My Fellow Lp Officers In The Camera Room Every Time It Happened. From That Point On, She Started Staring At Me Every Time I Passed By Or Was In The Area. So I Asked My Fellow Lpo To Watch Her On The Camera,He Said &Quot;Dude,This Is Starting To Look Like Border Line Obsession.&Quot; The More I Ignored Her The Harder She Tried To Get My Attention. So When Things Didn'T Go Her Way,She Played The Sexual Harassment Card. So,I Denied All Accusations At My Meeting And They Thought It Was A Load Of B.S. After Doing A Little Investigating Of My Own,I Found Out Not Only Was She Married,But As Done This To Few Lp Officers Before I Got There. So She'S Been Known For Doing This. As For Her Witness' I Is Her Sister-In-Law And The Other 3 Are Very Good Friends Of Hers And Knew About This As Well And Are Lying For Her Now. This Has Happened To A Friend Of Mine A Few Months Ago. They Took The Same Steps With Him Even Though The Women Both Consented To The Sexual Joking. They Fired Him For Sexual Harassment ,But When He Got The Letter Of Termination,It Never Once Mentioned That Was There Reason For Termination But It'S On His Record Now. And Now The Same Thing Is Being Done To Me. The Company Never Did An Investigation On Him And Probably Won'T With Me Even Though I Have Quite A Bit Of Proof. And My Last But Not Least My Company Plays Favorites And I Don'T Think It'S Fair When I Am Literally The Only African-American Male Working In The Entire Store. So My Question Is,Since I Will Be Terminated Very Soon From Sexual Harassment,Do I Have Enough To Put Up A Fight In The Matter And Is This Something That May Be Worth Pursuing In Court? This Has Gone For Too Long And Something Needs To Be Done About It Since Our Company Won'T Defend Us. I Have Also Found Out From Another Reliable Source That I Was Also Accused Of Threatening To Beat My Co-Worker With A Baton If I Ever Caught Him Talking To Her Again
Thanks In Advance For Your Answers
You know, when you think about it, SHE was sexually harassing YOU! Man it galls me that only men are punished for this. Women are more than capable of it too, and she clearly was doing it to you, including creating a hostile work environment through slander.
While many states are considered "at-will" (meaning you can be fired for no reason at all at a whim) one of the exceptions is sexual harassment and defamation of character. It may be possible to sue for wrongful termination. It may also be possible to sue her individually for defamation and collect damages as a result of the loss of employment. I don't know what state you are, but your local department of labor might have some more specific advice and/or options. Get in touch with them and retain an attorney for yourself.
EDIT: If race seems to be an issue here (that is, they are being biased against your word because they are racist) heck, go for it. Race is also a exception to at-will too. This is CA's labor department link, and may be useful to you: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/HowToFileDisc...
Are You Impressed By Attorneys?
That They Got Into Law School, Endured It, And Are Now Attorneys?
Why Or Why Not?
I'm guessing you are planning to be or are one. Well I'm currently doing a Law degree and I am fascinated by attorneys and lawyers to be honest.
It requires dedication and an awful lot of hard work. And no not all lawyers are liars like the other answerer said. My lecturer is a human rights lawyer and she sure isn't a liar, there are good lawyers as well.
Have a nice day :)
Child Support. Any Lawyer'S Form Texas On Her?
My Youngest Daughter Is 21. Ex Never Payed Child Support. Now They Are Taking It Out Of His Check. Who Does That Money Really Belong To? My Daughter'S Or Me? (When I Do Get It I Do Buy Stuff For My Daughter'S.)
I don't need to be a lawyer to answer this. The money goes to the legal guardian of the child, normally a parent, to be used exclusively for the child's needs. By exclusively I mean that a parent may apply a portion of it to rent for the child's residence, and to a common household food bill, etc. but must supply the child with goods and services such as shelter food clothing, etc, that equal the entire amount of the check PLUS the parent's own contribution to the child's needs.
The only question here is "who is the child's legal guardian or parent?" That is the person who gets te money and who must spend the money properly.
If Gov Blag Is Impeached, Which It Looks Like Is A Done Deal, Then Will Attorney General Holder?
Go After Him To Prosecute Him For The Transgressions? If So, Will Rahm And Other Ex- Illinois Politicians Have To Take The Stand And Be Questioned? If So, What Might This Open Up In Regards To The Illinois Political System Under The Rule Of Gov Blag?
I get the feeling that he will get off with a slap on the hand...just to keep him shut up
Divorcing And Can't Afford An Attorney!?
I Am Going Through A Divorce And I Cannot Afford An Attorney But My Estranged Husband Has One. The Process Has Come To The Intial Status Conference And I'm Lost And Of Course I Am Going Through It Emotionally. Look I Am Not Looking To Get Rich But We Have A Child Together And Bills , The Whole Nine...I Am Not Trying To Get Screwed Any Further Than I Already Have. So What Does All This Mean For Me When It Comes To Going Through This All By Myself?
Well not all divorces need a lawyer, however since your hubby has one its essential you get one as well, otherwise you will get taken.
Try legal aid, or get a free consult with an atty in your area, most offer 30 min free consults. I have heard of some lawyers postponing their fees/charges and demanding the spouse pay for them in the divorce. That way they had the legal representation they needed, but they did not have to pay for it.
You will get child support, do not agree to anything. Let the court order it, that way its in the divorce papers. If he chooses to not pay the court ordered child support then the courts can get him for not following their orders. If you do this all by written agreement, not in the courts, then you have no leg to stand on when he doesn't pay.
You can also request alimony, its clear he makes more money than you, so you should get alimony to help you get back on your feet.
Also, all debts, assets, etc. are usually split 50/50 in most states. This means you are not responsible for all the bills, he has to pay half if your state is a community property state. Good luck.
