4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want a lawyer at all, you must work closely with them as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - especially information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they must help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being promptly, each and every time. In reality, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate 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 which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Why Would A President And His Attorney General Place Thousands Of Weapons In Criminal Hands Of Another Country?

What Are Various Reasons President Obama And Attorney General Holder Would Want To Arm Criminals In Our Neighboring Country Of Mexico.
Because he sold out to the Federal Reserve, Wachovia was busted for laundering money in 2009 and became "Wells Fargo" I guess we are supposed to forget. 400 Billion dollars in Laundering money and 20 thousand lives lost. And now Holder and Obama are sending Guns down there.
It was reported by alternative media (of course, who else?) that the gun problems in Mexico were actually a result of the billions of dollars cartels make per year, with the help of our largest financial institutions who are more than happy to launder their drug money, and the fact that they will stop at nothing to acquire the weapons. As it turns out, most of the guns being smuggled into Mexico come from countries other than the United States, including Russia and China.
Difference Between Law Schools?
I’M A College Sophomore, And I’M Considering Law School After Graduation. Currently In New York For College But I’M Originally From The West Coast. The Two Schools That I’M Shooting For Is Either Stanford Or Berkeley. Stanford Is Ranked Higher But Is There Any Difference Between The Two Schools. Will It Be Easier To Get Jobs From Stanford? How Important Is Rank?
As a practicing California attorney and Stanford law alum, I can tell you that the difference with respect to job prospects after graduation is very minimal. While its true that some firms simply don’t hire graduates of lower ranked schools, Stanford and Boalt Hall (Berkeley’s Law School) have consistently been ranked in the top 10 schools in the country. Any firm recruiting at Stanford will also be recruiting at Boalt. You will earn the same and your work will also be evaluated the same.
The one area where going to a higher ranked school may have an impact is if you decide to practice very far away (geographically) from the location of your law school.
My friends from law school who wanted to practice in New York or DC had no problems finding jobs. Similarly, while my firm mostly hires graduates from CA schools, new associates from Yale, Harvard, Columbia, NYU, etc. is not uncommon. However, we don't have associates from other highly ranked but non-elite law school from outside California. While I know for a fact Boalt grads are practicing out east, it just seems to me that fewer Boalt grads move east. This may be attributed to a greater personal desire from Stanford grads to practice east or it may be a result of Stanford’s higher ranking. If it can be attributed to Stanford's rank, then its a very minimal bump. I still think that a JD from Boalt will not harm you in anyway. My hunch is that your academic record in school and how well you interview will have a bigger impact on your job prospects than whether your law degree says Stanford or Boalt. Now, I’m not in a position to make hiring decisions, but I’ve been at the same firm for 5 years and I’ve had discussions with partners who do make hiring decisions.
Law students sometimes place too much emphasis on which school they go to. Once you get into practice, you will find out that the law school you attended is most helpful in securing your first job. After that, your work performance will determine if you will be invited to stay at that firm, advance toward partner track, or if your work product will allow you to secure positions at larger and more prestigious firms. While my firm does not hire new law graduates from any school ranked lower than 30, we have several attorneys in the firm from lower ranked schools that came to us as lateral hires from other firms. Usually, they are very competent attorneys with proven track records. While rankings are important, your job prospects will ultimately be dictated by your abilities.
Ah, yes from the poster below I can see how my answer might give you the impression that ranking does not matter. My comment deals with differences in rank within the top 10 law schools.The law student below is absolutely correct when he says rankings matter. They do and thats just a fact of the legal profession.

Which Of The Following Is (Are) Legal Proof Of Insurance?
`$35,000 Cash Deposit To The Dmv
`Dmv Certificate Of Self-Insurance
`Insurance Policy Card From Your Insuracne Company.
`All Of The Above
- $35K cash deposit to DMV is never a "legal proof of insurance," the DMV wouldn't take a $35K cash deposit.
- DMV will not provide you a certificate of self insurance.
- Insurance policy card from your insurance company is the ONLY legal proof of insurance. And the insurance must be valid. Of course most likely the police and DMV will not make sure it's valid - but if it is not - and you are involved in an accident - you will be considered an uninsured motorist.
Need Help Regarding Felony Charges. Yes Again.?
2 Months Ago, My Former Friend'S Dad Got In An Accident, In Which He Was No Longer Able To Work. He Was No Longer To Pay The Bills And Was 2 Months Behind. I Was Nice, So I Loan My Friend 4000 Dollars. He Promised He Would Have Payed Me Once He Received His Income Return. 1 Month Ago, His Friend Told Me He Had Received His Income Return. Right After, I Tried To Get Ahold Of Him, But To No Avail. He Never Answered My Calls Or Was Never Home. At That Time, I Had Arranged To Pay A Deposit And First Months Rent Of An Apartment My Friends And I Were Getting. I Had 3 Days Left To Pay, But I Still Couldn'T Get Ahold Of Him. I Found Out One Day That He Told His Friend That He Was Never Going To Pay Me. This Is When My 4 Friends And I Decided To Break Into His House To At Least Get Some Stuff Of His. One Night, We Drove To His House. When We Got There, We Decided Not To Do It, So My Friend Just Threw 2 Rocks At The Windows. On The Way Out Of The Neighborhood, We Got Stopped.
Boy, I seem to be on a trail with your questions and you keep giving out more details so I have to clarify my answer again and again (this is my third response).
First if you didn’t make your friend sign any legal documents saying that he owed you money then the debt won’t be provable or considered by the court. Between friends a person’s word should be good enough, but I have found that when money is involved all bets are off.
What ever you wrote in your statement and confessed to will probably stick, you should have waited for a lawyer. Did anyone ask for a lawyer or did you just get frightened and wrote those statements. If you did then and didn’t ask for a lawyer first then those statements will hold in court and they will be very hard to break. A good lawyer can do it, but probably not a lawyer from the Public Defender’s Office. You would need to prove that the police were notified you wanted a lawyer and didn’t get you one, or that the confessions were coerced, forced out of you somehow; the mere threat of jail isn’t enough, you were in jail already. The threat of serving time in a prison isn’t strong enough either since you are considered innocent until proven guilty.
The charge of Organized Crime may not stick, unless any of you are members of a gang. You are friends and your relationship as friends is not a criminal one. A good lawyer can make that charge “go away.”
In your two earlier questions you implied that guns were involved, if there were no guns present then that is good, but if you had a screwdriver the prosecutor can call that a weapon similar to a knife. If the knife has tool marks on it that could seem to make it look like it was sharpened then this question of a weapon or not becomes more important.
Your statements are the key to the case and they will be your doom. What ever you wrote and signed in police custody will be what the final decision will hinge on. If no one in your group was a gang member then you can argue your way past the organized crime charge, but you confessed to the others so a trial is a mere formality. If you can’t break those confessions then you will go to jail on attempted burglary (breaking and entering) and burglary to attempt theft (attempted theft). If you confessed that the group of you planned on breaking in and robbing your former friend then that is a conspiracy, although not necessarily a criminal one. Still it will only increase the threat you posed and that will make the charges seem worse and the probably punishment even worse.
The fact that you were leaving doesn’t matter; the fact that you might have intended something else is also immaterial. You confessed, and what ever you wrote on that confession will stay, it will cause you to lose the case, and it will put you in jail.
You have two options. First find a very good lawyer (read that as expensive) who can break those confessions or plead guilty and try to come off as good boys who planned a crime, but realized that it was wrong and you couldn’t do it. You were wanted to repent for that act so you willingly confessed to the police. I doubt if anyone will believe that you were on your way to turn yourself in, but you could try and suggest that to you lawyer and see what he thinks. You may end up confessing your guilt and “throwing yourself on the mercy of the court.” But, don’t do that until after you talk with a lawyer, in fact don’t say anything until you contact a lawyer. Future communication with your friends can be traced and that can be used to say enforce the idea of a conspiracy, so don’t talk with them. Seek legal advice this minute, I mean right after you read this note.

You don't want to get legal advice over the Internet - THAT is NOT a good idea!!!!
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for Lawyers that handle Family Law matters. ALSO, ask for the phone number for your local Legal Aid office.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Attorney. Do NOT tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Lawyer. When you get the Attorney on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they have FREE, initial consultations?
- How much do they charge?
- Do they accept payments on their accounts?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
