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.

Family Attorney -- What Should I Major In?
My Goal Is To Become A Family Attorney. What Should I Major In Right Now As An Undergraduate? I Have Heard Getting A Bachelors Or Masters In Psychology Is Probably The Best Route.
Most law schools don't care a lot. It couldn't hurt to have a background in family dynamics. Finances also helps because there is a lot of that involved in dividing up families in divorces.
A lot of people going to law school major in the social sciences, so it won't really stand out.
What Is A Business Lawyer?? Need Help With What Exactly They Do And How To Become One.?

Due diligence, also called document review, is the process of reviewing existing legal and business contracts of a business (including corporate documents, agreements and financial statements) for potential problems and issues prior to a proposed transaction, such as a merger or acquisition. The usual goal is to make sure that there is nothing in any of the contracts that would prohibit the sale of the company (or require a third party's consent) and to make sure that the contract will not terminate as a result of the sale. Usually, an associate will catalog the documents he or she has reviewed and write summaries of the key agreements. For example, when a merger is being considered and the acquirer hasn't had the time to read all of the contracts of the company it is considering purchasing, the lawyers will be expected to summarize the agreements. The purpose of due diligence is to give your client the clearest possible picture of the company you're examining, so the client can assess the risks and benefits of going through with the contemplated transaction.
In an initial public offering, due diligence involves reading agreements that are summarized in the deal prospectus—the document given to prospective investors summarizing important information about the company and the deal—to make sure the prospectus is correct. If you are representing an underwriter in a securities offering, you will review documents so that the underwriter can claim to have made a reasonable investigation of the issuer's statements in the offering document. Basically, it's done so that the underwriter will be able to claim the due diligence defense if there is a material misstatement in the offering document. ("I investigated and everything looked fine so don't come after me with a lawsuit because the investors lost their money.")
Do I Need A Lawyer For Family Court?
I'M Accused Of Domestic Violence.
Could I Accuse My Wife For False Accusations.
I Could Get Kicked Out Of The Navy & The Country If Found Guilty.
First question...yes, you need a lawyer.
Second question....yes, if you are able to prove your wife lied to police in making those accusations. That would require that you not only are able to prove it, but that you had pled "Not guilty" and were acquited of the charges.
Third question.....When I was involved with the Navy (dependent) domestic violence was hardly an issue. It might show up in your permanant record, but you would not get kicked out. Nowadays, domestic violence is taken much more seriously; so you might face a great deal of difficulty with the Navy if you are convicted.
Third question, part two.....Out of the country? Not hardly. Unless maybe you're not a US citizen? Then, if you are divorced from your sponsor, AND discharged from the Navy for committing a crime, then I don't imagine you would be able to make much of a case for not being deported.
Which brings us back to the answer to question one....you need a lawyer.
Child Support, Divorce, Legal Advice?
My Husband Moved Out So I Filed For Divorce (Joint Custody, He Pay Me Child Support) He Disagrees With Child Support, And With The Advice From A Legal Aid, Moved Back In.... My Attorney Says I Can Sign Papers With The His Changes, Then File For Child Support Later &Quot;If Need Be&Quot;. We Have Two Boys 14 And 16. As Of Today He Is Providing Financially. Should I Just Bight The Bullet, Keep The Peace In Our Home And Get Our Joint Takes Return?...Haha
Here Is A Email My Attorney Sent Me About My Situation:
Here Is The Written Version Of What We Discussed.
The Divorce Agreement As Modified By Your Husband Does Not Really Address The Issues Of Child Custody, Support, And Property Division Other Than To Say &Quot;We Agree To Agree&Quot;. This Has Pros And Cons. One Is That The Judge May Not Sign It. This Is Unusual But Possible. However, If The Judge Does Sign It, Its Ambiguity May Protect You Ability To Formally Address Child Custody If Husband Does Not Honor Your Verbal Agreement.
To Further Explain, Usually Once A Couple Enters Into A Divorce Agreement, That Agreement Is Final And Cannot Be Changed Unless A Spouse Can Show A Material Change In Circumstance. That Is Why I Recommend Making Sure Your Divorce Agreement Has The Actual Child Custody, Support, And Property Divisions You Want From The Beginning. The Current Version Signed By Your Husband Doesn'T Do That And So Lacks Teeth.
However, Since It Is So Ambiguous, A Judge May Actually Consider Changing It In The Future Without Requiring That You Show The Usual Material Change In Circumstance Because There Is Very Little Evidence In The Agreement As To What The Circumstances Are. In That Sense, It May Lack Teeth But That Might Make It Easier To Add Teeth In The Future.
Let Me Know What You Decide Or If You Have Any Other Questions.
Are you still divorcing or reconciling? The thing about "we agree to agree," as your attorney told you, is that it doesn't give you anything to hold him to. If he just decides not to send you support, you have no dollar amount he owes you, and have to take him back to court to get anything in writing. In the mean time you're on the hook for bills and expenses for your children, with no help from him. If you trust him to actually pay it, go for it, but you're risking a lot at a pretty crucial time in their lives. How will you feel if you can't afford to send them to college because you're still paying your attorney because of all the times you have had to take him back to court?
Personal Injury Lawsuit?
I Was In A Grocery Store Yesterday And Slipped And Fell On Some Liquid On The Floor And Took A Pretty Hard Fall On My Knee. I Got Up And Walked Away Thinking That I Was Fine, But Soon After I Got Home I Had A Lot Of Pain And Returned To The Store To Speak With The Manager. He Spoke With His Higher Up Manager And Confirmed That Sprite Was Spilled And Not Cleaned Up. There Was Also No Caution Sign. I Can Walk On My Leg But With A Limp And Only For Short Periods Of Time On Flat Ground. Going Up Stairs Is Nearly Impossible And Walking For A Long Time Makes The Pain So Much Worse. I'M Going To Get X-Rays Today, But If This Injury Were To Chronically Effect My Ability To Work, Is There Some Kind Of Money That I'M Entitled To For Loss Of Wages And Suffering? I Have A Job Where A Large Portion Of My Income Relies On Tips And With This Injury I Will Be Able To Make Absolutely No Tips. Any Help Or Advice Would Be Greatly Appreciated!!
Yes, you should be covered by the store's insurance coverage, however grocery stores tend to fight these lawsuits quite vigorously because they happen all the time in stores and there's a good amount of fraud in the slip and fall injury market. Remarkably, the worst culprit in a grocery store is the harmless grape. People step on them and they often cause a fall in the produce department.
If the store did not state they would accept a claim from you (typically they will ONLY cover your medical bills...not lost time from work or wages), then I would suggest you speak to an injury attorney to find out what they can do about it.
Most attorneys will allow you to have a first consultation for free, so no worries there and they often take such cases on contingency, so you shouldn't be shelling out anything unless your case wins versus the store.
If so, then the attorney typically takes 30%, 40% or 45% of the settlement, depending upon whether the case is settled before trial, during the trial, or as a result of a judgment by the court respectively.
What Does The District Attorney Of Social Services Do?
I'Ve Never Had A Da Of Social Services At My Door. I Recently Filed For Aid From Social Service Last Week. I'Ve Been On Aid Many Years Ago And It Was Smooth Getting On And I Got A Job And Got Off. The Da Was Knocking At My Door At 8:00 Am This Morning, My Kids Were Sleeping And I Was Unshowered And In My Pajamas. He Told Me He Was At My House Yesterday Same Time, But I Wasn'T There (Taking My Kids To School). I Told Him Through The Screen, &Quot;Can We Reschedule This? My Kids Are Asleep And I Haven'T Had A Chance To Shower And Put Clothes On. He Told Me This, &Quot;Either You Let Me Through This Door Or You Will Have To Reapply.&Quot; He Said He Is On Limited Time Also It Was This Instant Or Else. So I Told Him I Can Reschedule Or Come Back Later. He Then Left And Rudely Said, &Quot;Good Luck!&Quot; Why Was He Being So Mean And Demanding To Come In My House At 8Am? I Don'T Have An Issue With Letting Social Service In. .I'Ve Let Them In Before And No Problems. I'M Not Doing Any Fraud Or Anything. I Have An Active Child Support Case With The D.A.. .Why Would I Be Investigated? I Don'T Have A History Of Anything Or Nothing For Him To Question Me On.
There is no position with the title "District Attorney of Social Services." There is a district attorney, and there is a director of social services. Their paths cross often on official business.
It's impossible to say why this person was at your door at 8:00 AM, but if you have an active child support case with the DA, they must need to discuss it with you. Early or not, you probably should have allowed him to come in.
