4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you need a legal representative at all, you need to work closely using them as a way 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 assist 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 in their mind. Privilege means everything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must assist them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, each and every time. In fact, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Which Is A Better Name For A Process Serving Business; The Company ...Or... Moore Legal Services?
I Want It To Be Professional, I Want To Be A Company Law Offices Can Trust. We Have Ordered Business Cards In The Name Of Both And Were Going To See How It Goes. I Need Some Opinions About A Name.
And Actually Since This Is A New Business Does Anyone Have Any Advise For Us With The Process Serving Business?
Dress in a professional manner or a type of uniform
always be polite and on best behavior
don't take anything personally
train, train, train. on the laws related to personal property, trespassing, legal ethics of the job, insurance, liability, policy and procedures manual, vehicle insurance, all related to your Business
smile- will get you there easier
as far as the name i would go with legal services that is what you offer and you can expand the types of service ie messangering, court runs etc.. down the road.
And it sounds more professional. Law offices bill you out to their clients as legal service or outside services
be safe be carful, be profitable -get some accounting and or billing professional to help set up your procedures and policy regarding accounts receivable. you wont be profitable unless the bills get paid.
Lay out what you believe will be costs incurred include your time office time and serving time to see if what you are charging will actually turn a profit. That must include your overhead not just the actual server.
You need the whole enchilada not just the salsa.
Lawyers like to sue it is their bread and butter and they wait till the last minute on so much. Make sure your procedure is to document everything that happens from first contact for services IE person you talked to details of all to pick-up if and when served how many attempts Communication with law office.
Im telling you this because it can make or break the lawyers case. And if it is break there has got to be a fall guy and it wont be the lawyer. Always pay your liability insurance..
As far as sales and marketing you need face time with any one who will talk to you at the firms you are soliciting to. Bring by flyer's, talk to the receptionists, have her put them in the break room or if she will the individual mail slots. Don't forget to bring her some treat candy bar something. Same with bonding with the secretary's that use you. Drop of the bill directly to her with even a lollipop keeps your firm up front in their minds for next time. sounds silly but it works. Kind of a calling card. Stick with it because it does work. the free pens, envelope openers ; etc do too but candy gets them all the time.
The bill needs attorney approval before it gets to accounting leaving it for the Secretary you have just shaved off a week of passing it around the office before it hits the attorneys desk. The Secretary will more than likely sign his name anyways. You get paid faster that way. Turn around on accounts receivable has made or broke numerous service company's in the legal industry. carrying large a/r kills your cash flow then your credit goes. Make the due date 15 days post the actual service you probably wont get it till 30 days. But if you do 30 it will be 60 days before you receive it. I would even go 10 days if you wanted to.
Stay on top of who pays and when. You need to cut off services to any firm who has not paid you by 60 days out. They will take advantage of you if you don't.
Well I hope this find you working your tails off. Good Luck. oh yeah You have to have or develop a thick skin bullet proof if you can. and most of all have a sense of humor. life is too short and lawyers make it shorter if you let them.
Probate Power Of Attorney Ohio Law?
My Brother Has Power Of Attorney Now For My Imcompetant Mother. When She Dies What Do I Need To Do Im A Daughter Of 8 Children My Brother Says He Gets All Mothers Property Doesnt Seem Fair What Can I Do Now To Prepare For This Coming Day?
probate & power of attorney are two different things, he may have power of attorney now, BUT you apply for probate after the person has died, ask your mam if she has made a will, try to see the solicitors who delt with the power of attorney, because even if your mam did leave everything to your brother you can put a stop on the probate, then contest the will, he will still have to split it 8 ways,
Should I Have A Lawyer Create A Contract?
I Just Accepted A Contract Position And Wanted To Create An Informal Contract Spelling Out The Terms Of Our Agreement (Compensation, Travel Agreement, And Living Arrangements). Is This Something A Lawyer Should Do Or Is Any Contract Enforaceable By Law (Self-Made Or Legal)
A contract is not automatically enforceable by law. There are many things that the courts will not enforce in a contract which is why you may want to retain an experienced attorney to negotiate the terms of your employment agreement.
However, generally speaking, the employer is responsible for preparing the employment agreement not the employee, and the employer generally wants to dictate the initial form of employment agreement which is why I find your question somewhat confusing. If you accepted a contract position don't you already have an employment agreement? That is a necessary element if you are a contract and not an at-will employee and it is standard for an employer to have you sign it prior to commencement of your job.
Ask your employer to send you a copy of your employment agreement in advance (perhaps they were planning on just dropping it in your lap and asking you to sign it on your orientation day). If you have any questions or problems with its terms you may, at that point, want to retain an attorney or you can assume that your employer will act in good faith and answer your questions and address any concerns.
Going To Court For Child Support Without A Lawyer?
Do I Really Need A Lawyer The First Time In Court For Child Support
Bring last years tax return , this years pay check stubs and a big bottle of lube.
EDIT: Bullshit aside , Child support is calculated as a % of your income. A lawyer can't do much to change that unless you plan to challenge paternity.
Need A Honest Patent Attorney?
I`M Looking For A Patent Attorney Who Will Help Me With This Idea I Have, And Please Bring Me A Honest One.
I would use the link below to search for patent attorneys and agents in your area. Both attorneys and agents have passed the patent bar and both are usually engineers, but agents have not completed law school, while attorneys have. I would find one that has written and prosecuted a fair number of patent applications, maybe around 50 or more. Ask if you can get a free initial consultation and find out both the fees the attorney/agent will charge you for filing your application, along with the fees the US Patent Office charges.
Filing and keeping a patent in force is fairly expensive. Once you file your application, there will be additional fees for completing responses to US Patent Office rejections, patent office fees for issuing the patent once it is allowed, and fees for keeping your patent in force once it issues. Find out what these fees are, then decide if it is worth the expense.
Mailing your idea to yourself as suggested in a previous answer may help prove your invention date, but it wouldn't prevent others from practicing your invention if they came up with the idea independently (or even if you told them your idea, and you didn't patent it). You must have a patent to prevent others from making and using your invention.
I don't believe that finding an honest patent attorney or agent would be difficult. A bigger concern for the novice inventor is usually the fees and expenses associated with patenting and keeping the patent in force, which can be a surprise for a new inventor.

Your description of events is all very confusing and that is probably the problem.
On a positive note, let me fill you in on standard police procedure. Police show up where there was fight after the fact -> Police didn't see what happened and evidence is limited -> Police charge EVERYBODY who was involved or who admits to striking another person no matter how justified they claim they were ->investigate available evidence, gather it together, make report to State's Attorney.
Contrary to popular belief "self-defense" and "defense of another" are not immunities from being charged. They are defense when you are being tried in court.
Just because you are charged does not mean that you will be convicted. In the next phase of the legal system, there are two "outs." The first is the State's Attorney; he or she will read over your case with the evidence gathered. If he doesn't feel there is any good proof of a crime, he will drop the charges against you ("nolle prosequi"). Sometimes the SA may even meet with you and your lawyer before deciding to do this. If they do decide to continue with the charges, you will be tried for the assault in court. You have time to mount a defense or you can take a plea bargain. How much of a chance do you have if things actually go to trial? There is absolutely NO WAY anyone here can tell you that. I'm not even certain what happened from your version of events. Hire a lawyer or apply for public defender.
