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.

What Type Of Attorney Would I Search For To Represent Me In A Landlord/Tenant Case?
I Just Filed A Lawsuit In Justice Court Against My Apartment Complex. I Was Unhappy With The Verdict. I Found Out How To Appeal The Decision But Would Need An Attorney To File An Appeal As It Has To Be Appealed To A Higher Court. What Type Of Attorney Would I Search For For A Landlord Tenant Case That Involved Personal Loss?
Any general litigation attorney...but you can't appeal just because you didn't like the verdict...there has to be a legal reason for the appeal...and since you didn't have an attorney in the first suit, most likely you didn't raise the legal issue before...meaning that you waived it.
A Question About Lawyers?
I Am About To Graduate High School...I Am Interested In Becoming A Lawyer, What Do You Need To Become One? How Easy Or Hard Is It To Land A Job After College? I Have A Previous Criminal History (Misdemeanor For A Stupid Fight, Misdemeanor For Possession Of Weed, And A Misdemeanor For Trespassing And Criminal Threats) But It All Got Erased When I Turned 18. Will That Effect Me In Any Way? Is It Really Worth It To Study For A Lawyer Or Should I Choose Something Else? Because It Seems Like Every Single Job Is Over Populated
Dude - You don't become a lawyer by graduating from college. You have to go to law school for three additional years after college and pass the bar examination. If you don't know what it takes to become a lawyer by the time you graduate high school, you are somewhat behind schedule. Just keep in mind that you have to major in a useful major in college (political science, English, Philosophy, etc.), you have to do really well (at least 3.4 or 3.5 gpa), and you have to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and do well on that. The legal field is really crowded right now and it is difficult to get a starting job. People who do well tend to get jobs though.
I Have A Family Law Case That Was Heard Out Of A County Neither Of Us Live In?
None Of Us Reside In Montgomery County.
I Have Lived In California For A Year.
He Moved To Harris County 6 Months Ago.
This Started As A Protective Order From A Family Violence Case.
The After I Moved ..It Went Into The Custody Hearing.
The Issue Is ...The Texas Order Is Impossible And Inreasonable.
First Of All He Is Allowed To Remove Her From Her Resident State Of California
(As Stated In The Order California Is The Resident State) For 2 Weeks At His Expense.
Even Though He Has A 2009 Assult And
Was Recently On Probation And Had It Revoked For Breaking The Protective Order.
Instead Of Jail They Gave Him The Charge Of Crimincal Mischief.
He Has A Steady 23 Years Of Charges Ranging From Assults To Drugs.
Then He Is To Return Her For Two Weeks.....
After That I Am Ordered To Fly Her To Texas For Two Weeks, At My Ecpense And Fullfill
Another Two Week Visitation To Him. I Am In School....I Am Working ..I Have A Sun In Year Round School
It Is Impossible For Me To Do. I Cannot Miss More Than Two Classes Or I Will Not Get My Certifications.
I Am Not Neccisarily Wanting To Exclude Him Entirely Out Of His Life, But I Don.T Think
He Will Return Her. My Stipulation Is, I Donmt Want Him To Leave Her Resident State And
County With Obvious Good Reason. There Is Domestic Violence Involved And He Refused Help.
The Order Has Said To Give 30 Day Notice Before His First Visit And He Has Also Been Given The
The Authority To Designate When I Have To Go To Texas. Regardless Of My Hardship Which I Did Tell The Judge
The Judge Said &Quot; I Trust You Will Be Able To Find A Way&Quot;
He Provided Notice Before The Order Was Signed...So There Was No Order When Notice Was
Provided. Child Support Informed Me They Will Go From The Date The Order Was Signed,
There Can Not Be A Notice, If There Was No Signed Order To Provide Notice For.
Texas Says He Gave Notice In Court Prior To An Order...And Excepted It Before The Order Was Signed.
California Is Enforcing The Order..
The Judge Kept Saying..&Quot; They Live In California , This Order May Not Even Stick. &Quot;
As They Also Kept Reiterating The Fact We Are California Residents; As They Have Instructed
Me To File For Venue.
As I Do Not Have 8 Grand Retainer For A Cali Attorney, I Have Hired A Paralegal Of 25 Years To
Help Me With This Case. We Are Looking For Technicalities To Help Block This Order And
Keep The Child In The State Of California For Visits. She Is Not Safe Going Back In Texas
With A New Conviction And A Steady Criminal Record Including Assult On Me.....
I Cant Imagine Why Texas Wants To Place Such A Liability On Themselves...
We Were Thinking This Case Wasnt Even Heard Out Of The Correct Court.
We Are Looking For Anything To Keep The Baby Here, In The Home State...
We Qualify Under The &Quot;Uccjea&Quot;
But Is That Enough To Keep Her Here In Her Home State? She Is Not Even Three Years Old..
Relying on the paralegal is a very, very bad idea. Particularly in a situation like this.
Paralegals are not lawyers and they are not allowed to give legal advice. It sounds as though this paralegal is providing you with a pseudo legal representation - something that violates California laws and regulations concerning the practice of law. And, in my experience, the paralegals who engage in this type of work are not particularly good at their jobs.
If you lived in Texas before moving to California and you moved the child without the permission of the father, then Texas probably does have jurisdiction over the child. As far as the "correct county?" Did the three of you formerly live in this county before you moved to California? And you say that a paternity action was started. Was that also in this county? If so, then he has a basis to file in that county.
If your paralegal thinks that this is a basis to get the judgment tossed, your paralegal is an idiot.
Additionally, if you appeared in that county (which you apparently did) then you CONSENTED to the jurisdiction of that court. You can't unring the bell now.
My guess is that the Texas judge was irritated with you for leaving the state without the authorization of the court or the father when an action concerning the child (i.e. paternity) was ongoing. So this caused the judge to decide to put the hardship on you to facilitate visitation.
I'm sorry but you are probably not going to get the outcome you are hoping for - particularly with this paralegal.
Power Of Attorney And Divorce Question?
My X Husband Wants To Give Me A Power Of Attorney. In Case Of Death Or Medical Emergencies He Wants Me To Be His Next Of Kin But He Thinks If He Put'S Me Down As His Next Of Kin On His Insurance Then His Family Will Fight Me About Medical Or Financial Issues.
If He Trusted Them Or Wanted Them In Charge Of His Well Being Then He Would Not Have Ask Me..
Is Poa The Right Way To Go For That ? And Also This Coming Up Reminded Me I Have A Couple Of Those Poa'S Put Away That People Gave Me For Different Reasons Thru The Years.. In The Military Or Different Reasons. Are Those Still Valid If No Other Has Been Given To Someone ? Am I Responsible For Their Affairs Should Something Happen To The Person ? Such As X Who Lives With Girlfriend But Never Married ?
a will goes into effect after he dies powers of attorney expire upon his death and he can appoint you administrator of his estate (personal representative).
A living will his hs statement as to what "drastic measures" he wants taken if he's in a degenerative medical state.
A MEDICAL power of attorney gives you the authority and obligation to make medical decisions in the event he is unable to.
Ideally his estate planning will include all three. As far as being "next of kin" I don't know he can designate that - which is why we have POAs. What he should do is make it clear that you are his POA.
As far as the existing POAs you have if they haven't expired or been revoked - the grantor would send you a letter revoking your POA and should ask for the original back.
Should I Hire A Traffic Lawyer?
Ok...I Live In Ny State...I Ran A Red Light And I Am In The Risk Of Getting My License Suspended If Proven Guilty In My Traffic Hearing....Are My Chances Better To Win If I Hire A Traffic Lawyer To Fight The Case For Me???
As with any criminal offense, go to court without a lawyer and ask to speak to the prosecutor. 99.9% of the time there is a plea bargain offered (plead guilty to reduced charges and both sides avoid a trial). No prosecutor would ever make a better plea bargain offer simply because someone has a lawyer. If the plea bargain offered does not cause a suspension, then you are good. If you don't like the plea bargain offer, you may need to try the case and you definitely should hire a lawyer.
Then again a suspend license is a big deal. Hiring a lawyer will help you navigate the system.
