4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want a legal professional at all, you must work closely together as a way to win your case. No matter how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Listed here 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 - regardless of what information you're going to reveal to them. 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 check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, whenever. The truth is, because you may have to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important so that you can convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and linked to 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.

I'M Lost! Need Legal Advice Please?
I Got Into A Minor Accident That Caused Damages On A Car That I Just Got. Since Im An 18 Year Old College Student Living At Home I Can Only Afford To Have Liability Insurance Which Means That My Insurance Doesnt Want To Do Anything About It, Even If I Clearly Wasn'T At Fault. Now Here Is Why It Gets So Complicated..
The Girl That Hit Me Is A Minor That Has No License Or Even A Permit. She Also Had 2 Little Girls In The Back Seat! She Was Driving Her Moms Car. Her Insurance Says That They Can'T Do Anything Because She Isn'T Under The Insurance Policy. I'Ve Talked To The Mother Of The Girl And She Has Only Lied. Saying Her Daughter Had A Permit &Amp; Then Another Time Telling Me That She Found Out Her Insurance Expired So She Wanted To Fix It On The Side, Even If I Had Already Claimed It To Her Insurance That She Said Was &Quot;Expired&Quot;. Even So I Agreed And Told Her That I Would Be Okay With Fixing It On The &Quot;Side&Quot; Aslong As I Was Assured My Car Would Be As It Was Before The Accident. However, The Day Before We Were Supposed To Meet Up At A Car Shop To Get An Estimate, She Never Texted Me Back. Today, I Messaged Her Again Basically Telling Her That This Is My Last Time Trying To Reach Out Before Having To Take Legal Actions. She Responded By Saying Her Father Died, And She Wasn'T Ignoring Me, &Amp; Again Didn'T Text Back. Ultimately I Just Want My Car Fixed. I'Ve Been Very Nice To This Lady &Amp; Have Given Her Much Patience And Understanding. What Can I Do On A Legal Standpoint? Thank You
Your position from a legal standpoint depends entirely on the information you have on them. For example, if you don’t have anything on her but a phone number and a first name then you’re screwed. I got hit by some old truck without AC when I was 17. We ‘exchanged’ insurance information, but it turned out the guy didn’t actually have insurance and his license plate was registered to a 2002 honda civic. Lucky for him, it took me a few days to figure out that I was totally 100% screwed as if I randomly drove into a wall. From a legal point, I had a very crappy position. I couldn’t prove that I got hit by someone so my insurance spiked and I ended up paying $748 to fix the front 3/4 of my car, a headlight, and a new rim(you know how hard it is to find a singular rim?). His truck was easily worth less than what I paid to fix the body damage the he caused.
Anyway, sorry about that, the answer depends 100% on the information you have. If you have the families insurance information, license plate number, and proof that the child without even a learners permit hit you and pictures from the accident/accident scene, then you can very easily win a case against them. If police got involved immediately after the accident then you wouldn’t have to worry about anything at this point. I’m not exactly sure if you would want to go through with full-on suing them, but if I were you I would make damn sure I communicate to the women that you are able and willing. You don’t have to be the bad guy. Just tell her you want your car fixed while making sure the mother of the child understands you that you WILL have your car fixed 100% either over or under the table.
If you know where they live then I would show up at their front door, respectfully, with a repair estimate from your local collision center.
If you have all their information I said earlier (License plate #, insurance info, pictures of accident) then you could also go to your local municipal court and file a property damage report(you can use this for leverage with the mother).
Bottom line though, you just want your car fixed. I wouldn’t go through all that legal crap unless it is 100% necessary and you lost contact with the family. So, my best suggestions are to stay respectful and get a repair estimate while still expressing your ability to take them to court.
As soon as the guy who hit me drove off I lost a lot of money and my payments went up and up. Best thing to do when you get in a car crash and it is 100% not your fault is to just call the cops and have them record the incident and all related data.
Insurance Not Responsive? Time To Get A Lawyer?
My Roommate And I Were Robbed About Three Months Ago. They Took Several Thousand Dollars Worth Of Things. We Called The Police And Filled Out A Report. Luckily We Also Had Renters' Insurance So We Filed A Claim. We Dont Have Receipts For The Majority Of The Claim But We Do Have Manuals, Pictures, Other Forms Of Evidence For The Items Missing. I Took At Least A Week Compiling This Information Into A Very Thorough Package For The Insurance Hoping To Speed It Up. Since Then, I Have Talked To The Agent On The Claim But Have Gotten Nowhere With Her. Everytime I Call She Comes Up With A New Excuse Of Why It Hasnt Been Finished. Every Week She Says It Will Be Done By The End Of The Day/Week/Whatever But It Never Is. It Has Been About A Month Of This. Up To This Point I Have Been Respectful And Patient With Them Because It Didnt Make Sense To Get Mad But At This Point I Feel It Is Getting Quite Excessive. My Question Is This: Is It Time To Get A Lawyer Involved? Anything Better I Can Do?
mbrcatz has given you the best advice on managing your claim. Each State has rules and regulations on when claims should be settled in a "timely" manner unless the insurance company is able to prove reasonable cause for delay.
You should have been given the claims adjuster's contact number to settle directly with them. Agent's are not licensed to Adjust Claims. Only Claims Adusters.. The scope of an agent's involvement may to determine cause of claim delay and to help mediate any misunderstandings between you and the claims adjuster to help clarify to you that you may not have complied to a certain "hurdle" requirement.
Also, if you did not have the feature Replacement Cost Contents on the policy, then things are Actual Cash Value adjusted (depreciated) vs. Fair Market Value (replacement) which both take time to establish values. Pay out will not exceed the amount of insurance limit reflected in Personal Property / Contents. Please realize, jewelry, cash, and other collectible objects may be subject to a maximum limit pay-out and not necessarily replacement value pay-out due to theft. Consult your policy pages for Maximum limits in Limted Personal Property Coverage section which outlines those figures for theft occurrence
i.e. I have a policy that pays out lump sum for stolen jewelry $1,000 and cash $200. So my claimant who lost approx. $10k cash and $28k jewelry received $1,200 as his claim recovery. It was not a good pay day for him. For the record, he was given the limits of coverage verbally from me as I knew his living style and wealth.

Texas Legal Wills?
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website To Order Texas Legal Wills From?
I can't give you any websites, but I do need to tell you that many of the websites which porport to provide you with do-it-yourself wills are practicing law without a license.
Those who provide you with a pre-printed form with blanks are doing you a disservice.
While it is LEGAL to write your own will, its extremely foolish to do so. The laws of inheritance vary greatly from state to state, and its very difficult for software manufacturers to keep up with the changes in the law... for often the change isn't enacted by the legislature but is a ruling by a court.
When buying a fill-in-the-blank form, you are not availing yourself of the knowledge and experience of an attorney. A simple will shouldn't cost more than $200 to $300, and you will save yourself and your heirs a lot of time and money and headaches.
For a referral to an attorney, contact your local or state bar association.
Foster Care Adoption Lawyer Questions?
I Deleted My Last Question, As It Was Poorly Worded.
We Are Foster-To-Adopt Parents. We Have Had The Child In Our Care For A Year. Both Parents' Rights Have Been Terminated 'Unofficially' By The State At Birth (Abuse/Neglect). To Make It Official In Our State, There Must Be A Tpr Hearing.That Hearing Is Scheduled For This Month. Once That Hearing Is Completed, We (Foster-To-Adopt Parents) Are Required To Find And Hire A Lawyer To Proceed With The Adoption Petition.
So, My Question:
I Know That The Court Determines When The Case Is Scheduled For The Most Part, But Will Our Choice In Lawyers Speed Up Or Significantly Slow Down The Process? Like, If We Pay More Money Or Seek Out A Certain Lawyer Who Claims More Experience/Expediancy, Will That Actually Speed Up The Process, Or Is It All Ultimately The Timing Of The Courts And Not The Lawyer?
Thank You For Any Insight You Can Provide!
If you live in a jurisdiction that falls within a Metro area where it is "just busier" and the court docket is full....then obviously the court can play a huge roll in getting the final hearing scheduled....
In my experience, the lawyer plays a VERY BIG roll in how long it takes. I have seen adoptions finalize within a week of my initial meeting to disclose information on the child/ren....and I have seen others take months; all due to the choice in attorney.
I would ask the worker which attorneys in your area they know of that has completed adoptions.....the worker is aware of some I am sure, whether they will tell you is something entirely different.
Also, you can pay a huge amount of money for a cRaP attorney or a very small sum for an awesome attorney. Their priorities sometimes are not yours so don't think more money=better quality/timeliness.
