4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you need a legal representative at all, you need to work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - particularly information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should help them to win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Can Anyone Think Of Good Reasons Why Adoption Laws...?
Can Anyone Think Of Good Reasons Why Adoption Laws Must Be Different In Every State Of The U.S.? Wouldn'T It Make More Sense To Have Federal Adoption Laws That Could Be Consistent?
Thank You For Your Thoughts On This Topic.
The federal government is (supposed to be) for the regulation of commerce and relationships among the states. Since adoptions take place within the states, there is no good (read: "constitutional") for the federal government being involved.
It is, then, a by-product of our federalist system. Like drinking ages, speed limits on highways, alcohol sales, marriage laws, and so many other state governed laws, having the federal government regulate this would be viewed as an encroachment on the sovereignty of states.
The federal government has tied tax dollars to following federal guidelines (ala drinking age, for instance, and speed limits), and in that way has managed to make some things more uniform. But I strongly suspect there is little interest in tying tax dollars to a uniform adoption system.
I do think consistency would be really good in this area. But it's hard to see how we might make that work in a federal system.
Emotional Struggle With Legal Questions. . .?
Me And My Current Boyfriend Have Been Together For A Really Long Time. We Broke Up For A Couple Of Weeks And I Truly Thought We Weren'T Ever Going To Get Back Together. I Made The Biggest Mistake Of My Life And Had Sex With Another Guy. He Used A Condom The First Time And The Second Time He Pulled Out. I Was Really Really Wet (I Couldn'T Think Of A Polite Word.) And So It Worries Me That I Might Have Been Ovulating? A Very Short Time After That, Me And My Current Boyfriend Got Back Together. I Had No Symptoms Of Pregnancy Or Anything Before We Got Back Together. My Boyfriend And I Decided We Wanted A Child After Working Out Our Differences And Having A Long Talk. We Then Tried For Many Days To Conceive (About A Week Or A Little Over A Week Before My Period Was Due.) I Took A Pregnancy Test And It Came Out Positive. Could It Be The Other Guy'S? And Yes, My Boyfriend Does Know About All This And He Is There For Me. We Are Together And Will Be Unless The Baby Is Not His. Do You Guys Think I Have Anything To Worry About?
If It Is The Other Guy'S;
-What Last Name Do I Give The Baby? (I Don'T Want To Use My Last Name Because I Recently Found Out That My Dad Isn'T My Real Father And I Don'T Want To Keep Passing On That Name, I Feel Awkward Enough Using It Myself)
-Can I Give The Baby The Other Guy'S Last Name Without His Permission?
-Do I Put Him On The Birth Certificate? (There Is No Possibility Of Anyone Else.)
-If I Do Will He Need To Sign It?
-My Boyfriend Decided To Tell All His Friends And Family Anyway So I'M Guessing They Will Be At The Hospital, How Will I Deal With This If The Baby Isn'T His?
-Any Other Advice?
I Feel Terrible About The Mistake I Made, And I Assure You, He Has Made His Fair Share Too. I Don'T Want To Be Judged, It'S Not Like I Cheated On Him. And No, I'M Not Going To Be Ghetto And Go On Maury. I'M Going Through A Really Tough And Emotional Time Right Now, So Please No Harsh Comments. (I'M 17 Weeks And 2 Days Pregnant.)
The Other Guy Doesn'T Really Want To Be A Father But Says If It Is His, He Will Do What He Has To Do.
My Last Period Was July 3Rd. Me And The Other Guy Had Sex About A Week To A Week And A Half After That. My Current Boyfriend And I Had Sex A Few Days After That With No Protection, Trying To Conceive.
Also My Edd Is April 11Th.
My Current Boyfriend Does Not Want To Raise This Child As His Own If Its Not His, And I Don'T Blame Him. So That'S Out Of The Question.
Yes This Is A Repost, Hopefully More Answers. :(
Due date April 11th suggests conception date July 18th or so.
Period July 3rd, suggests ovulation (if 28-day periods and regular) of about July 17th or 18th. Pretty good agreement.
However, a "week and a half after" and "a few days after that" there's no telling who's the daddy until the baby is tested. It seems that your bf is more likely, but time will tell.
it's a simple test - they swab your mouth, the baby's mouth, and one or more fathers' mouths; send the swabs away, and for a few hundred bucks they'll tell you with 1 in 10 million accuracy who's your daddy. Note that unless the swabs are done by a licensed medical tech who checks everyone's ID, the results are not admissible in court. However, given the answer, unless they think you pulled a fast one on him, who's going to demand a legal test too?
I'm pretty sure you can put whatever name you want on the birth certificate. Most single mothers find it more convenient to use their own last name. It avoids a bit of confusion at schools etc. It's not like he has a copyright to the name "Smith" or whatever if you decide to use that. If you want to, use your mother's last name and eventually change yours legally too.
Not sure how long you can wait to finalize the birth certificate, since a DNA test can take a week or so. BTW, if you can find the blood type of the two daddys and your own, the hosital might be able to give you a rough guess almost immediately if the baby's blood type can rule out one daddy. There's a 50-50 chance it can, unless they have the same blood type.
Worst case, you give the bf's information then ask to change the results and/or do legal name changes when the tests come back. For that, I don't know.
You can put him on the birth certificate or not, I suppose. You can do what you want. He doesn't have to be anywhere near the hospital, or even in the country... What difference does it make? One way or another, he'll know. Your child will probably want to know. If you go after him for support, or he wants the child to know their father, does it really matter what's on the certificate? The court will determine who's the real daddy legally, and what happens in terms of support and visitation if you don't come to a friendly agreement.
If the bf told his family, and didn't tell them the big "But...", that's his problem to deal with. After all, unless the kid comes out the wrong color, what difference does it make? Who will know until the tests come back? For a week or two everyone will think there's a new addition to the family. By then, you probably won't see any of them again anyway and the bf will ahve filled them in with the news.
I found the following link - you have 45 days to amend a birth record in Minnesota, for example. your state may be different.
I'M Thinking About Becoming A Real Estate Lawyer? Any Insight On This?
Question Details: What Is Your Work Week Like? Do You Enjoy Being A Real Estate Lawyer? What Is The Salary Like? What Does Your Student Loans Look Like Now That You Are Practicing, This Is One Of My Concerns. I Know I Have Quite A Few Years Ahead Of Me But I Am Thinking About Practicing In Houston, Texas When I Am Through. Any Insight Will Be Greatly Appreciated.
<Rolls Eyes at the 2 answers above me>
There's no set salary scale for any type of law. If you work for a firm, it depends on how much they'll pay you. Typical first year salary can be anywhere from $30K to $125K. School loans depend on how expensive your school is. State school kids obviously have less debt than those who go to privates. Also depends on if you get any scholarships. Univ of Houston offered me a scholarship even tho I didn't even apply for one. Woulda lowered my costs for attending there more than a regular student.
Real Estate attorneys might do litigation or just transactions. Counsel people on how to set up a real estate deal. Help them sue involving some dispute involving real estate. It's really no different from any other lawyer, just that you focus on real estate issues. My firm does some real estate law, altho we try and stay on the transactional side.
Will This Help Me Get Into Law School?
If I Just Found Out That I Have Some Sort Of Learning Disorder That Makes It Hard To Write Logically, Will That Help Me Get Into Law School? I Am Going To Get Help And This Has Affected My Grades.
If you get it professionally diagnosed and documented and you deal with it law schools may be willing to overlook lower grades from before your diagnosis. This means that starting NOW your grades need to improve substantially and stay improved for the rest of your college career. Logical writing is pretty much the number one thing a lawyer needs to be able to do. Law schools will not be willing to take a chance on you unless you prove that you've learned how to deal with and succeed despite any learning disorder.
You should also keep in mind that even though your college (and possibly your law school) may help you out in terms of things like extra time for exams, etc. this does not happen in the real world. The judge will not grant you a continuance or extend a filing deadline because you have a learning disability. Your coping strategies/medication/therapy need to be rock-solid before you graduate law school.

I Got A Citation In Ks, And I Live In Tx. Can I Hire A Traffic Attorney/Lawyer Through The Phone?
It Is A Speeding Citation, But It Is Not Wreckless Driving. I Want To Contact Some Trusted Attorneys And I Don'T Want To Plead Guilty Whether It Goes On The Record Or Not.
An attorney is going to cost much more than the ticket is going to cost. Are you sure that's what you want to do?
