4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want a legal representative at all, you must work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent they can be, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important methods to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most especially information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to help them win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, each and every time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last minute details or be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Pre-Paid Legal Services?
So Iw As Offered This Thing About Some Company Called Pre-Paid Legal Services..Everything They Have Told Sounds Too Good To Be True...Everyone &Quot;Supposedly Is Like A Millionaire? I Already Signed Up For It...They Told If I Get People To Sign Up I Get Money For It...I Don'T Have To Sell Anything...They Seem To Have Convinced Me Very Well...But I'M Just A Little Nervous...I Was Just Wondering Has Anybody Ever Tried It? Do They Pay Good? Is There Like A Catch? As A Prospect, And Associate How Was Your Experience...Relating Top Back Then Or Presently?
I have prepaid legal services and I've been very satisfied. The monthly fee is very low, they did a great job helping my wife and I set up our wills and medical directives etc, and they've been very responsive and helpful with a few minor legal issues like traffic tickets or accidents.
As for working for them as a consultant to sell their services: I believe that you get paid on a pure commission basis. If you work full time and you're good at it, you could probably make a living off of it. If you just sell a few memberships per year by talking to friends and family, then you'll make a few bucks in extra spending money. But you won't make any money if you don't do anything. However, its an easy product to sell because its such a great value.
Waiver For Criminal Charge For The Army?
I Had A Incident That Happed In 2000. The Charge Was Dropped. My Recruiter Just Ran My Background On Friday. Tuesday I Go To Meps . Will The Charge Come Up Before Meps? This Never Came On Any Background Before. The Only Thing It Ever Came Up On Is When I Got My Ccw For Nc.
Do You Think It'll Come Up At Meps
sounds like you shouldn't have any problems, of course I don't know what the charges were, there are on occasion issues with "dropped" charges, depending on local laws etc.
PER AR 601-210 PARA 4-4
(1) Persons released from custody or restraint of a court under procedures that do not result in final disposition of the charge are morally disqualified. Examples of such releases are—
(a) Release following plea of any type to the court (including plea of guilty or nolo contendere).
(b) Release on probation without verdict.
(c) Release on person’s own recognizance.
(d) Release following charges that are placed on file.
(e) Any similar disposition, without regard to its technical name, that indicates the person may remain subject to further judicial proceedings in connection with the charges.
(2) In addition, persons who are granted release from charges at any stage of court proceedings if they will apply or be accepted for enlistment in any U.S. Armed Forces are not qualified for enlistment (see para 4–12b). Questionable cases will be referred to USAREC Plans and Policy, through the chain of command. Granting of release from charges is an alternative to further prosecution, indictment, trial, or incarceration in connection with the charge, or proceedings relating to adjudication as a youthful offender or juvenile delinquent.
(3) The above bases for disqualification will be considered removed if the official chiefly responsible for prosecution of the charges submits a signed statement that, under the laws or current practices of the jurisdiction, applicant is not subject to further restraint, custody, control, or prosecution by authorities thereof. Such officials include the district attorney, judge of the court involved, or higher official of the jurisdiction concerned who has responsibility in connection with the case.
It is my experience as a recruiter back in 2000 that many locations "drop" a charge but do not annotate a final disposition on the case in the record, creating more legwork for your Recruiter (if he's done his legwork it shouldn't be a problem)
GOOD LUCK and thanks for going ARMY
Fighting Property Taxes, Do I Need A Lawyer?
I Recently Got A Letter From An Attorney That Said They Can Help Me Lower The Property Taxes On My House Since I Paid Considerably Less For The House Last Year Than The Current Tax Assessment Value. Is There Any Benefit To Using An Attorney For This As Opposed To Just Fighting The Taxes Myself?
be careful, schools and municipalities are loaded with these types of suits since property values tanked. unless it will make a huge difference in your tax tab it may not be worth the hassle. remember, that property will eventually be reassessed, they could come back and nail you anyway,
Do I Need A Lawyer For A Minor Theft Case?
Im The One Who Was Stolen From. I Had A Guy Put His Hands On Me And Steal My Phone. There Will Be An Officer And Me At The Hearing.
The Man Had Prior Convictions For Assault So He Went To Jail. I Am There To Testify And Did Nothing Wrong So Do I Need A Lawyer? Thanks
You'd only need a lawyer if you were suing or were being counter-sued. If you're afraid of something you might say in court could be used against you, then yes. Otherwise, no.
A Question For Lawyers...?
Im Really Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer, So What Should I Know About Law School And Stuff?...Do Enjoy What You Do And Did U Ever Have To Sacrifice Anything To Become One?
First: Why a laywer? Is it to fullfill a true ambition or fulfill a "status" block (i.e., my child is a doctor/lawyer/dentist?). Do it ONLY for the former and rarely for the latter...status is good, but won't carry a career wrought with (1) alcoholism, (2) public scorn/scrutiny and (3) marital strife and (4) inevitable moral/ethical dilemmas and compromises.
Second: What type of law do you want to pratice? I love advocacy and found my niche in the courtroom. I have peers who have no business being in a courtroom as much as I have no business writing a will, securing real estate transactions or providing legal advice to a corporation. Match your desire to your skill set and passions.
Third: Embrace the culture of law. It's not what it appears on TV and in news headlines. The gloss you get on the 5 oclock news or on prime-time TV (even the "news" programs) is not even close to what goes on in the culture of law. Find a firm that you can intern with or do some paralegal/clerical work for. It will enlighten you both positively and negatively.
Fourth: if you do not like to read/write, law school and the following career may prove quite unfulfilling. Even as a litigator...90% of my career is reading/writing. A trial involves 90% reading/writing before you ever step into a courtroom. Your reading/writing skills have to be sharp. If you don't enjoy either...it's hard to "fake" the skills. I see plenty of mediocre attorneys (and former mediocre law students) and it is clear that they fake these skills. They end up hurting their clients and the profession in the long run. It erodes them professionally, emotionally and spiritually as well (hence alcoholism/divorce, etc).
Fifth: You asked of sacrifice. Yes there is sacrifice. To earn the "status" of being a laywer, you have to commit three long years to school - and it is a full-time commitment of your evenings and weekends. Has the sacrifice been worth it? Yes. I love being a litigator. I do criminal defense now and love the challenges it presents. I love defending my clients and giving them the constiutional protections they deserve. I love how the law has helped me in a lot of areas of my life. I better understand contracts i have to sign, how to buy a house/car, how to negotiate nearly everything. I better understand the news I read/watch, I better understand politics. Don't think all lawyers are miserable from what you are reading. I've been happily married to a loving non-lawyer for 8 years. My closest friends are lawyers and are happily married. None of us drink or have drinking problems. That's the majority of us. My lawyer friends with failed marriages and drinking problems would have those problems no matter what they did for a living. The law didn't creat those problems, but could have made existing problems worse because of the demands on lawyers by their bosses (and society).
Sixth: There are some great books about law school (everyone I think reads One-L by Turow, although its a bit unrealistic). A lot of college libraries have such books. Visit a law school and sit through the classes and talk to law students. I used to give tours at my law school and could tell who really wanted to be there and who was just trying to make mom/dad happy.
Last: Work between college and law school. Develop some "real world" experience. It will help you understand the law. You'll come in with better insight and more maturity. It will also help prevent burnout. I flew for the Air Force and also taught high school for between college and law school and was better for it. I barely graduated high school (2.02 GPA, no lie) and then graduated in the top 25% of my law school, who gave me a full-ride scholarship. It was the experience that helped me, and i was more mature and disciplined as well. Good luck to you

The law is the law, no matter where. That means, all of your constitutional rights and liberties are guaranteed in ANY court of law. There may be court procedural rules which define HOW you must apply those laws within the framework of that court. Your best advice should come from an attorney who knows the court rules and procedures.
You can refuse to admit anything you want. You are NOT required, under law, to self-incriminate yourself or to admit to anything. If other courts have found he manufactures things, just present the facts to the court and let the facts stand for themselves. How you go about doing this is dependent on court rules and procedures. It is unwise for you to not to have legal counseling or representation in these matters.
In this case, pleading the 5th has always been viewed as an escape mechanism for the guilty..mobsters in front of a Congressional inquiry often love to use it to prevent themselves from having to admit they have committed crimes. I am fairly certain, this is how it would be viewed in any court, even if it is your right. It is better to respond in the appropriate manner while avoiding admitting to anything. In other words, it might be smart money to be a good politician: give a reply and say nothing, that is what politicians do. Depending on the judge, you may be liable for not answering the questions directly and the judge may be compelled to find you guilty of contempt of court for not giving a direct answer to questions. This is why you need to have proper legal representation, who knows when you should speak and when you should shut up.
