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 Live In Illinois
First of all this is not legal advice, I don't know know Illinois law specifically so these are more or less general observations.
I suspect the reason none of the lawyers want your case is because this is such a small amount and they don't stand to make that much. It's about the money and not the law as far as they are concerned. It stinks, but if you play this right you're better off without one anyway.
A lawyer will take a good size chunk of any settlement you get so you can afford to negotiate down and do as well or even better by yourself. You can also use the mercenary nature of lawyers to your advantage.
If this was somehow related to the transit company, like on one of their vehicles, or she attacked you while on duty, then I would go after the transit company. She was one of their employees and they are responsible for an employee's action while they are work.
File a small claims action against the transit company, there is usually a fee for this because the business has to be served with the court papers, usually by a sheriff's deputy. It's very dramatic.
Anyway this means that they will have to show up in court to defend themselves, either by showing up themselves or sending a lawyer to handle it. That can be expensive, plus they have no guarantee that they will win which means that could be out what your asking plus the lawyers fees. If you have a decent case and we'll assume that you do, they will most likely contact you to settle out of court. You could raise your amount to include missed work, expenses and probably double it then let them back the amount down to get what you wanted.
You can always take the woman who attacked you to small claims too, the problem is that it may be hard to collect any judgement that you win. She most likely won't have a lawyer and with no job, no money.
Like I said earlier, not legal advice but what I would be doing.
Good luck and hope this helps.
Can You Help Me With The Legal Aid As I'M Trying To Build A Lawsuit And Defense For A Friends Court Case?
Theres A False Picture Being Painted Of Whats Really Happened And Slander As Well As Defimation Of Charactor According To The Charges Being Instated And Accused Of And I'M Financially Strapped! So I'M Needing As Much Help/Input As Possible To Be Solid With Proceeding Into This Matter !
What state are you in? What do you mean by charges? If it's a criminal case and your friend cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for him (public defender).
If you're in CA and the "slander" and or "defamation" was told to a police officer, during the course of an investigation, then your friend can't win. A recent case came out that said those statements are covered by Civil Code 47 (or 45) - the litigation privilege.
What Is The Difference Between A Lawyer And An Attorney?
I Watch Law & Order Alot And I'M Taking A Business Law Class Too But I Still Have Trouble Knowing The Difference Between A Lawyer And An Attorney. I Think They Mean The Same Thing: A Legal Professional Hired To Represent Someone In A Criminal Case. I Was Thinking Of Writing A Novel About A Lawyer Whom Takes Up A Murder Case But Must Find Evidence To Defend The Person Charged With The Crime And To Make Matters Worse He Is Being Targeted As Someone Has Put Out A Hit On Him. Just An Idea I Came Up With For A Legal Suspense Novel. Haven'T Written Anything Yet Though But Got Some Ideas.
Perhaps no other profession has as many variations in titles than that of lawyer. The titles attorney, lawyer, barrister and Esquire are frequently used, sometimes interchangeably, in the field of law. However, by definition, each has a unique meaning.
Generally speaking, an attorney, or attorney-at-law, is a person who is a member of the legal profession. An attorney is qualified and licensed to represent a client in court. By most definitions, an attorney may act on the client’s behalf and plead or defend a case in legal proceedings. The English word attorney has French origins, where it meant “a person acting for another as an agent or deputy.”
A lawyer, by definition, is someone who is trained in the field of law and provides advice and aid on legal matters. Because a lawyer also conducts suits in court proceedings and represents clients in various legal instances, the term has expanded to overlap the definition of attorney. In the U.S., attorney and lawyer are normally considered synonyms. The term lawyer has Middle English roots.

Thank You For Any Answers! (10 Points For Best)
hmm..sorry you're going through this. When I got divorced my husband and I were not fighting over anything so neither of us had lawyers. We just signed some papers and a few weeks later we were divorced. BUT..my mom divorced my dad about 20 years ago and she didn't have a lawyer. He spent all his money on a very expensive lawyer (yet couldn't pay child support). My mom said she felt all alone because she was standing at her table by herself..while he stood at the other table with his head held high and his expensive attorney by his side.
HOWEVER..once my mom began to tell her story (of his physical abuse) she said she didn't feel alone anymore. She just spoke what she knew and what she experienced and she kept her eyes on the judge. She paid no attention to her soon to be ex husband. She just kept her eyes forward...and it helped her a lot. HIS lawyer asked her a few questions and she answered them to the best of her ability..and soon enough it was all over.
Much Much Does An Attorney Charge For A Dwi Case?
The Case Is In Jersey, I Haven'T Had Any Priors, I Passed The Breathaliser Test At The Station (Under0.8%) I Had A 0.6%. Only Other Ticket Is Careless Driving.
You should be able to find an attorney that doesn't charge for the initial consultation. After that, it can vary greatly depending on the circumstances.
Generally, the more work he puts into your case, the more you get charged.
Could One Of You Recommend A Good Brain Injury Lawyer?
I'D Like To Keep The Details Private...
Well, if the question is simply where can you find a good brain injury lawyer, I would say look online or for a medical malpractice attorney. I haven't heard of the Brain Injury Association, but it sounds like a group of loosely affiliated trial attorneys. Start local, but there are some good resources available online as well.
