4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal representative for any reason, you should work closely along with them to be able to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important ways to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - most importantly information another 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 because of the data they need to assist them to win. 3. Arrive Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, whenever. Actually, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important in order to convince the court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Best Law Firm In The Us?
What Is The Biggest And Best Law Firm In The Us? Please Be Descriptive And Detailed To Be Chosen As Best Answer
The best law firm in terms of actual skill and results depends on the state and the area of practice, but almost of all of the "Big Law" firms are in NYC and Washington DC. Personally, I'd choose a local firm for most things involving a state court, like personal injury, divorce, probate, contracts, etc., but these big-time firms are the go-to firms for huge Federal litigation, planning, and lobbying, and for international transactions. Vault does some surveying every year for this kind of thing, and the top five are:
Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz
Cravath, Swaine, & Moore
Sullivan & Cromwell
David, Polk, & Wardwell
If you're thinking about trying to work for one of these firms, don't even bother finding a house to rent or buy. You'd be better-suited just getting a cot and a wardrobe for your office and sleeping there. Your work hours will basically reduce your time at home to an average of 6 hours a night. I had a professor who worked at Skadden. He told us he quit because after doing a major securities deal, he had been away from his apartment for so long he literally forgot where it was. The only reason he found it was because the dry cleaners he used were on the first floor of his building and he got the receipts from his secretary. After he found out he could earn over $100k a year teaching at a law school working 40-50 hours a week, he bailed. His words were something to the effect of, "I like pizza, beer, ESPN, and hiking. I don't need to work that much to pay for those things."
Is Being A Fraud Investigater A Good Career?
Whats A Day In The Joob?
Do You Regret Being A Fraud Investigater?
Is It A Stressfull Job?
Do You Like It?
You apparently don't know what you are talking about. Every government agency or organization and every type of business in every type of industry investigates fraud. They are NOT "fraud investigators." They do it as part of their regular jobs.
The credit card companies investigate fraud. The banks examiners investigate fraud. Lawyers investigate fraud. CPAs investigate fraud. The FBI investigates fraud. The CIA investigates fraud. The OIG investigates fraud. All mortgage companies investigate fraud. The SSA investigates fraud. The IRS investigates fraud. Every state in the U.S. has a State Attorney's office that investigates fraud. Every state has a state labor board that investigates fraud. The SEC investigates fraud. All state tax auditors investigate fraud. All welfare and government assistance program have people who investigate fraud.
There are thousands and thousands of people with jobs as inspectors, examiners, auditors, administrators, etc., in every phase of government and business who do their regular jobs and sometimes discover fraud. Fraud is generally not something that is known in advance, but is discovered during the normal routine performance of a person's job.
Fraud is a crime and discovering it by an inspection or audit can become a dangerous job as sometimes it leads to criminal charges. And those people don't want to get caught. And, yes, it can be a very stressful job. It's not necessarily a job you would want to have as you could get shot and killed by someone avoiding detection and arrest.
Generally speaking, you should try to avoid jobs that are stressful as they cause high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health problems, and can kill you. Good luck.

Wa State Custody Laws?
Unmarried. Share An Infant Child. Having Relationship Issues. Want To Leave, But A) He Won'T Let Me; B) He'S Threatening To Take Her Away And Making The Separation Ugly.
She'S 4Mths Old
He Is Not On The Birth Certificate, But She Does Have His Last Name (Went To Purchase Her Birth Certificate And Saw That His Name Was Not Listed). To Get His Name Listed, We Need To Have A Notarized Affidavit Of Paternity
He Did Not Know, Nor Has He Filed An Affidavit Of Paternity
On Some Miscellaneous Hospital Documents, He Is Listed As Her Biological Father And I Want To Say That He Signed Something Attesting To That
According To The Pierce County Sheriff'S Department, They Cannot Take Physical Custody Of Her, From The Parent She Is Physically With, To Give To The Other Parent.
If They Are Called Into A Domestic Situation, They Will Take Her From Both Of Us And Put Her Into State Care Until The State Orders Some Type Of Decision.
The Only Thing I Can Do Is File A No Contact Order For The Both Of Us, Until A Parenting Plan Is In Place
Seeing As How He Hasn'T Filed An Affidavit Of Paternity, Nor Is He Listed As Her Father On Her Birth Certificate...What Rights Does He Have? What If I Choose To Leave The State? What Can He Do?
I Do Not Wish For The Situation To Be As Such, But I Won'T Have Him Retaining Physical Custody Of Her If He Won'T Let Me Have Her Back After A Visitation.
She Was A Miracle Surprise Baby For Me. I Wasn'T Supposed To Be Able To Conceive, But I Did. She Is Very Likely To Be The Only Child I Will Have Due To My Age And Fertility Issues. She Is Still Currently Nursing And Refuses To Eat By Any Other Method, Believe Me, Many People Have Tried. So At This Time, Anything Beyond 2.5-3Hrs For A Visit Is Inconceivable. He Thinks That If I Leave Him, He'Ll Just Come Over Every Day And Talk Me Into Coming Back.
He Does Have A Tendency To Get Verbally And Physically Dominant Over Me (Ie Not Letting Me Leave, Taking My Phone And Keys, Blocking Me Into Areas, Pushing), But Wouldn'T Hurt Her. There Is One Report Of Domestic Violence Reported With The Police A Few Years Back, Where He Had Gotten Extremely Drunk And Very Physically Violent Towards Me - But I Had Managed To Leave. My Sister Had Called The Police. They Arrived. My House Was Damaged. He Had A Bite Mark On His Arm From Me From When He Tried To Put Me Into A Choke Hold. They Took A Picture Of His Arm. I Didn'T Go To The Police And File An Actual Report. Nor Did I Go To The Hospital, But I Did See A Chiropractor, And Friends And Family Had Seen Me. I Believe My Mom Took Pictures - But The Bruising Wasn'T Overly Physically Apparent - He Did More Tossing Me Around Like A Rag Doll, And I Had Whiplash From Being Thrown Around. I Forgave Him Because He Was Super Intoxicated (And He Had No Sense Of Reality At That Time), And He Didn'T Touch Liquor After That Until His Birthday In January. He Didn'T Get Violent Towards Me Again. He Did Have The Police Called On Him Because He Threatened The Neighbor, Threw Our Trash Can Into His Yard, As Well As Our Recycling Bin. I Was 5Mths Pregnant; Couldn'T Control The Situation; And The Police Escorted Me Out For My Own Safety. He, Once Again, Hasn'T Touched Liquor.
He Loves Our Daughter, But He'S Not Very Hands On. When He Is Interacting With Her, He Is Phenomenal. But As For He And I, It'S A Very Bi-Polar Relationship, And Has Become Increasingly Toxic Emotionally For Me. I Wouldn'T Mind Him Visiting Her And Etc. I Just Don'T Want Her Used As A Tool, So I Have To Take Measures To Prevent That, And Protect Myself. She Is My Priority.
So Please Post If You Have Any Knowledge Of What I Can Do. I Don'T Need Anyone Stating That I'M Retarded For Staying With Him In The First Place After Our First Physical Domestic Situation, I'M Pretty Aware.
If you two aren't living together and there is no order of visitation, stop letting him see your child immediately as if you don't, he may not give her back and he may file for custody himself.
If you two are living together and your family is not in your city or out of state, when he has gone to work, call your family COLLECT and ask them to come and get you. And then again when he has gone to work, pack up, and take your kid and go home to your family, preferably out-of-state. Unless he has a court order of paternity (with paternity dna test), he can do nothing to stop you and he certainly can't stop a single mother from leaving the state as for all the court knows, you could have slept with a hundred different men (no offense intended).
Don't argue with him and don't tell him (or anyone else) that you are going. Just do it. And make sure you forward all your mail and disconnect all utilities that are in your name or he will just run them up. Also close any bank accounts and credit cards that are in both your names. And don't leave anything behind that he can use against you (think id theft, etc.). (Nearly forgot...wipe the computer you leave behind so he can't track you....3-8 times wiped with eraser should do the trick. Buy a new computer at your end destination (ditto cell phone) and change your email, facebook, etc. accounts.)
Then when he tracks you down, assuming he does, and that he wants his rights, you hire a lawyer and have your sole custody confirmed. And until there is a court order for visitation, don't let him have your child as he won't give her back and may file for custody himself. If you are out-of-state, make sure you are breastfeeding so the judge won't order an overnight visit....that shouldn't take place for the first two years anyway as it is important that the baby bonds with his/her mother. Good luck and God bless.
Addendum: Document all the abuse you have received from him, including the times you have had to call the cops, your trip to the chiropractor, etc. You will need it.
Joint Custody - Pros And Cons?
Please! Need Some Info From Those In This Situation. My Son'S Father Wants Joint Custody (He Has Never Seen Him On A Regular Basis - His Choice, And Now, 6 1/2 Years Later?) I Realize I'M Selfish To Want To Keep My Son With Me, But I Think He'S Selfish As Well. My Son Likes Security - He Likes His Routine - Getting Up An Hour Earlier For School, Getting Home An Hour Later, Sleeping In Different Beds, All That Good Stuff - How Is That Good For A Child? We Had A Parenting Schedule (Which He Followed For About Two Months) 2 Years Ago (We Never Married), And He Is Consistently Late Paying Child Support And Still Owes Arrears. If It'S About The Money, He Can Keep It, But He Says My Son Doesn'T Know Much About His &Quot;Other&Quot; Family. I'M Pretty Sure He'Ll Throw In The Cultural Thing, Too. I Do What I Can And My Son And I Talk About Differences A Lot.
Seriously, If You Have Good Things To Say About It, Let Me Know, But I Definitely Want To Hear About Any Issues. Thank You!
I have joint custody with my ex for are daughter, but he has always been a responsible parent for the most part. He has always seen her very regularly, and even when he lived 2 hours away he would come and get her every friday and keep her till sunday. She was in school and he could not get her through the week then. He moved back to town after about six months away, because he wanted to be able to have her for his whole week. I have had problems with him bring her home if she get sick, because a mother knows how to handle these things mind you his wife has 3 children of her own. She should know how to handle them as well. They brought her home at 2 am one time so I could take her to the hospital( she was extremely ill), because they did not know where the children's hospital was in our area. It is 5 minutes from where we both live, and he grew up here. How do you have 4 kids between you the oldest 8 at the time, and not know where the only children's hospital in the area is. The other hospitals in the area will not even see kids. I also have had trouble getting him to pay for his half of her needs, but that has changed. I don't want you to think my daughters father is a bad guy. He is a good father, but he has his issues, and who doesn't. I am sure he could tell a couple not so shining stories on me too. If they are a good parent who loves their kids and tries to take care of them to the best of their abilities, I think joint custody is awesome. Though you do need to communicate with your ex for this situation to work out. So that the child has a similiar routine at both homes, and the same things are expected of them and the punishment is the same for bad behavior at both homes. If the father is not good with visitation and child support they have now. There is no way I would agree to joint custody. I would tell the father after they show that they can be responsible enough to carry out the previous orders of the court then I would consider it. I would not put my child through that. A father who is in and out of a child's life can be very damaging to their self esteem any ways, by promising things and not carrying through with them. The child wonders what they did to make dad not want to get them or whatever the broken promise was. The child somehow thinks they did something and that is why dad didn't keep their word. When they are older they start to question why other things seem to be more important to their dad than them. It can be very harmful to the child, and by allowing this type of father joint custody you would just open your child up to have their father dissapoint them more often, and make his life very unsettled. I do not think I would be worried about the money, but if he will not pay a court ordered support. Then I doudt he will help you to buy half of all the things a child needs. You can keep track of what they help you purchase or buy themselves, but it is not as easy to track as child support. So yes I think joint custody can be a beautiful thing between 2 responsible parents who are able to communicate with each other for the sake of their child. In your case I would not consider it till the father becomes much more responsible, or I think your child will become very hurt and have a very unstable life. You must have a strick schedule that is followed so as not to interrupte the childs life with joint custody. I have my daughter from one friday after school to the net friday when I send her to school. She then goes to her dad's after school on friday. When the school is closed on a friday she stays with the parent she is with till when school would let out then the other parent picks her up. We have the same bedtimes at both houses and the same meal times and bath times. We have exactly the same schedules at both house. Which we had to discuss at length so that everyone would be happy and able to manage our schedules. It is not easy, but we felt it best for our daughter. Unless you think your ex is responsible enough to handle this, and he clearly does not sound this responsible. Then I would say no for the reasons I already explained. Good Luck and you sound like a wonderful mother who is willing to put your child first.
I Have A Problem , I Cant Trust The People Around Me.In All Diffrent Cases.Eg Work,Relationships,Emotionally,,,What Do You Guys Suggest?? Plz Help
well, Trust is something people gain through their experiences. Your trust towards other people reflects your perception of them. Isn't there anybody really trustworthy? Did all of them hurt you the same to not trust at all? if the answer is yes, then you're case is an extreme case of paranoia. a psychological defence mechanism to prevent future hurts....
but Human beings are not Hurt-proof... you really can get hurt but it depends on you on how deeply you want to be. you can get out of an experience losing trust to only 1 person, but use your wisdom, knowing that 1 person should not change your whole preception in life most especially your Trust issue.
dont worry, though trust is not fixable. you can surely start building a new one with a new person.
