4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a legal representative at all, you need to work closely together 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 ways to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, whenever. In fact, because you may want to discuss last second details or be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for just about any crime, it's important so that you can convince the court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood 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 must win your case.

Undergraduate Major For Intellectual Property Law?
I'M No Expert In Law At All But I Have Heard That The People In Intellectual Property Law Usually Had An Undergraduate Major In Engineering, Computer Science, Math, Physics, Etc. Is This Something That Is Greatly Preferred Or Does The Undergraduate Major Make Little Difference Like For Most Types Of Law. My Girlfriend Is Applying To Law Schools Soon And She Is A Marketing/Legal Studies Major. She Said She Was Interested In That Type Of Law But Is That Something That Is Out Of Reach Due To Her Majors? Thanks!
Intellectual property law covers trademarks, copyrights, and patents. If you want to take the patent bar then you need to have an undergraduate science degree or take a specific number of science courses demonstrating proficiency in the sciences. She can practice IP law but she will not be able to handle patent cases without admission to the patent bar.
A lot of people pursued IP law careers because the salaries were high. But the market has generally slowed down for IP lawyers and people have even been pursuing LLMs to make themselves more competitive. Maybe, she should consider working for the United States Patent and Trademark office to see whether she actually likes the work before investing into an expensive law school education.

Family Lawyer...? Advice To Become One?

On The Side Also...Just Wondering What It Would Take, Any Advice, Majors To Choose, Schools In California, Etc...Any Help Please? Thanks
Family law isn't what you're thinking of. You're thinking of a general practitioner who hopes his clients are all families. If you think more about it, it's going to be very hard for you to be such a lawyer to that many families. A few of them, sure. But not your whole practice.
Mainly, you need to understand areas of law better.
Family law deals with divorce, adoption, child custody, etc.
Then you've got all sorts of business law.
Then you've got civil litigation.
Lawyers either specialize in one or more related areas, or they are a general practitioner willing to do everything, but not great at everything.
If you want to be general, then focus on business in school. That requries the most technical skill. The most book learning. All the other stuff you basically learn on the job. Might as well keep doing what you're doing. Psych's an easy major so it'll prop up your GPA. Business isn't known to be that hard either. Help you get into a better law school that way.
Just try and get into the most prestigious law school you can. Follow the US News rankings cuz that's what everyone does.
Does Any Know An Good Traffic Lawyer In Philadelphia?
I Have 3000$ Worth Of Traffic Tickets And I'M Looking For A Good Traffic Lawyer To Chop It Down
Since you are looking only to get a lawyer to chop it down, I assume you are actually guilty of the violations. If so, it may not be worth hiring a lawyer. If you have no defense to the tickets, they aren't likely to take much off the fines. Then, when you add the lawyer's fee back in, you may wind up paying pretty much the same amount anyway.
Now, it would be a different matter if you have a good case that you shouldn't have gotten most of the tickets. If a lawyer can demonstrate that you have a serious defense, then you can probably get the fines reduced significantly, and it makes a lot of sense to hire someone to do that. But if you are just hoping to get a discount on tickets you deserved, save the money you would have paid to a lawyer and work out a payment schedule.
This may not be what you wanted to hear, but I hope it helps.
Immigration Attorney---How Likely Are They To Be Successful?
I'M Very Close With One Of My Older Nieces, Who Is In Her Mid20s. She Has Been Married To A Very Sweet Hispanic Man For 4 Years And They Have 2 Children Together.
He Is Not Legal, And I Think Its So Very Sad Because He Has Very Big Dreams And A Lot Of Talent At Different Things But He Is Unable To Put Them To Use. Hes A Very Hard Worker And Working A Tough Job For Little Money To Help Support His Family....
I Recently Inherited A Large Sum Of Money From My Great-Grandfather, And Was Wondering.......I Know Immgration Attorneys Are Very Expensive. If I Got One For My Nieces Husband, Would That Make It Easier For Him To Be Legal? Or Would I Just Be Throwing My Money Into A Black Hole? Id Love To Make Their Lives More Comfortable And Easy...
Is he a visa overstayer or really illegal? If he is a visa overstayer your niece can (and should have) sponsored him for a greencard long ago. If she doesn't earn enough for the income requirement you could be the financial cosponsor.
If he came illegally into the US he will have to leave at some point and get something called I-601 waiver in order to come back. This is the process where an immigration lawyer is really advisable. If you go for this, you should make sure that whomever you pay has a lot of experience with this particular process. There are chances to get him legal, but it's not guaranteed.
I'd recommend that you and also your niece and husband spend some serious time understanding the legal situation. This can include consulting with one or several immigration lawyers. Some give a free first consult. This should give you a much better idea what is and what should be going on, and it will also allow you to judge the immigration lawyer you choose eventually (not everybody is competent). Look up AILA lawyer, that should give you a shot at finding a decent one.
