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.

Whiplash, Personal Injury Settlement Amount?
I Was In An Automobile Accident In March 06, I Was Rear-Ended Taking A Left Hand Turn And The Insurance Company Admitted Liability Imediately. My Car Was Totaled And Was In The Er For Exrays, Ct Scan And Mri'S. And They Were Talking About A Settlement For Physical Therapy Right Away So I Hired And Attorney. My Injury Mostly Has Been Whiplash, I Also Have Cervical Vertigo And Am Still Being Treated Almost A Year Later. I Have Been To Pt And Vestibular Rehabilitation Ostepathic Manipulation As Well. I Have Been Dizzy For Almost A Year As Well As Anxiety And Have Been Following All Of My Doctors Recomendations. I Am Not Trying To Make Quick Cash But I Do Want To Know Some Sorty Of Figure To Ease The Anxiety. My Bills Are Around 10K And Was Out Of Work For 2 Weeks Right After The Accident. Does Any One Have A Figure For A Sincere Personal Injury Amount And Pain And Suffering? I Haven'T Gotten An Amount From My Attorney As Of Yet. Thanks For Your Help!
Since you are still treating and still having problems a year later you will end up with more than someone who only treated for 3 or 4 months (like myself). My settlement was $10,000 and ALL of my medical bills were paid in addition to that. In addition to going to Physical Therapy you may want to consider going to a Chiropractor and getting adjusted, especially if you are dizzy. Make sure you tell him this is due from an Auto Accident and then they will be included in the lawsuit and you won't have to pay for him every time you go. They will bill the insurance company and almost always wait til the suit settles to get theyr payments. Your attorney probably has not put an amount on this because he is trying to determine (along with your doc's) if this is going to be a long-term problem that you will be dealing with. The longer you have your problems, the more money he will be able to get for you. Also, you will be reimbursed for the 2 weeks you missed of work. If you are taking any medications that are not covered, make sure you keep a receipt for them (or get the pharmacy to give you a print out of the payments you made for them) because you can be reimbursed for that also. My attorney told me to get a black & white marble composition book and write down EVERY DAY how I was feeling, any problems I had (like not being able to lift a hamper to bring it to the laundry), any dizzy spells, any days I lost work..etc., etc., and keep a running diary of ever day things. Sometimes things happen and unless you have them written down you won't remember them, especially if you end up going to court becuase the other guys insurance doesn't want to settle. Good luck and I hope your dizzy spells go away. My husband has them (from years of Vertigo) so we know what you are going through.
Question For A Civil Attorney About Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Who Has The Right To Bring An Unlawful Death Suit Against Someone? Does One Have To Be A Family Member, Or Can You Be A Friend Of The Person Who Died? Also, In Order To Bring An Unlawful Death Suit Do You Have To Show How The Death Of That Person Effected You, And/Or The History Of How You Believe That Somehow There Should Be Justice Due To You Regarding The Death Of That Person?
For Example: If Your Young Nephew (20) Dies And You Believe There Was Foul Play Or Negligence On The Part Of The Immediate Family, Could An Uncle Bring An Unlawful Death Suit Against The Mother, Stepfather And Stepbrother? What If The Uncle Had Financially Provided For The Upbringing Of The Nephew Most Of His Life?
It really varies from state to state.
In California, for example, a wrongful death suit would need to be brought by the decedent's personal representative (i.e. the estate executor), or the decedent's surviving spouse, domestic partner, children, children's children if the children are deceased, and persons who can claim through intestate succession.
So, a mere "friend" would not have standing to bring a wrongful death suit, at least not in most states.
And yes, a plaintiff must allege "damages." But usually that is very easy to do, since claims of "loss of consortium" and "loss of emotional support," etc., are acceptable.
Everyone Else Can Find A Lawyer To Represent Them But Me?
This Has To Be The Most Stressful Situation I Ever Had To Encounter In My Life. My Union Has Acted In Bad Faith, Handled My Grievance In An Arbitrary Manner, And Showed Dishonesty Towards Me By Lying About Investigating And Wanting To Help Me. I Went To The Human Relations Commission Where I Live And Have Documented Evidence Of The Company Admitting To Doing Wrong But My Union Wants To Change Policy To Fit The Employer By Telling Me That Managers Are Allowed To Select Shop Stewards For Union Members And That The Shop Steward Who Sold Me Out And Manager Who Wrongfully Terminated Me Through Misrepresentation By The Steward Was Not Wrong . They Threw Out My Grievance And Filed And Made One Up Without Me Knowing It Was Filed, I Never Got A Copy Of It And They Withdrew It For No Reason What So Ever. I Look At Cases Like Vaca Vs. Sipes & Bowen Vs Usps And These People Had No Problem Of Getting A Lawyer To Fight The Unjust That Was Done To Them By Their Union And Employer.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle employment law for employEES. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
-Do they give FREE, initial consultations? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
-Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Help Can Anyone Refer A Top Notch Divorce Lawyer In Houston, Tx?
I Need To Find A Really Strong Divorce And Child Custody Lawyer In Houston But I Don'T Know Anyone To Ask, Please Help Me.
IMO finding a good divorce or personal injury lawyer is fairly difficult. You can save yourself a lot of grief and money by doing some research upfront -- talk to divorce support groups, too.
Family law problems can get quite vicious. In Toronto, Canada, the only floor in the main courthouse where ALL visitors have to go thru a metal detector is the FAMILY (divorce) courts. One lawyer got slugged in the elevator by an adverse party (spouse, or "ex" of his client.)
There is also a tendency for false physical abuse allegations.
If money is also involved, you would do well to read what happened in Redpath vs. Redpath -- private investigators made all the difference, factually.
Good lawyers have to be located by proper research.
Constitutional Law Degree?
I Want To Be A Lawyer When I Am Older. I Am Currently 16. I Was Thinking Of Constitutional Law. What Job Opportunites Are There For Constitutional Law? What Do Constitutional Lawyerd Do?
What Is A Good University For Law? I Was Thinking Georgetown. What Are Other Schools That Are Good.
Constitutional law would be an excellent choice. There are many different types of jobs you could get--including working for an organization or law firm that specializes in civil rights cases, First Amendment cases, etc.
Georgetown is excellent. There are many good choices, however. You probably want to consider law schools in the state you'd like to live in. And, of course, schools in the D.C. area are a good choice for someone who plans to practice constitutional law.
If I Walk In To A High Profile / High Price Lawyers Office And Admittedly State That I Bought A Gun For An Ex?
Con At A Pawn Shop, And Now I Want Out Of This Mess....Will He Call The Cops On Me Or Something Or What...No Backlash ...State Of Texas
Tell the lawyer and give him the gun and just leave. If you already gave it to the ex. I would be very concerned, if he kills someone you will be an part of that crime as he is.
