4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional at all, you need to work closely with them so that you can win your case. Irrespective of how competent they are, they're likely 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 - whatever information you're planning to reveal in their mind. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - especially information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, each and every time. In reality, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important to be able to convince the legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely 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.

Car Accident; Back Injury Claims?
I Was In An Accident About A Month Ago. I Rear-Ended Some Guy'S Car. He Didnt Want To Call The Police Or The Insurance Company. He Said It Wasnt A Big Deal, The Car Was Old Anyways, The Damage Was Minor. We Exchanged Phone Numbers And Agreed To Call Each Other Later And Come Up With A Settlement. He Asked For A Sum Of 300 Dollars And Every Time I Went To Give It To Him, He Wouldnt Want To Meet. So I Stopped Calling, About Three Weeks Later I Get A Letter Saying That He'S Taking Me To Court Cuz Of Back Injury. Can He Make A Case With No Police Report? Should I Notify My Insurance Company? What Should I Do? What Do You Think Might Happen, Can He Really Sue Me For Thousands Of Dollars? Please Give Me Advice I Would Appreciate It.
Well, gosh. The only reason someone like him would get an attorney is to try and threaten you. That's like him trying to sic a pit bull on you. But here's the good news. Personal injury attorneys that would take his case? They're total pushovers.
So, here's what you do.
#1. No one's going to court anytime soon.
If YOU did not report the accident to your insurance company. Pick up the phone and do it now. (Apologizing for a late report is not going to make things any better.) The sooner you get it reported the better. Even IF you had insurance for the date of loss - if you, by your actions, have prejudiced the carrier's ability to handle the claim.....Guess what? They can deny coverage. ooops. You don't want that so...get on the horn.
Now.....when you said you got a letter saying he's taking you to court.......things really are NOT that simple as far as court is concerned. There are filings that have to be done, approvals that need signed, docket scheduling...... and certainly you know - public officials move slower than dirt. And that's just the court part.
In a suit? Suit has to be filed, answered, interrogatories have to be served/answered, discovery has to be served, depositions....
Do ya really think someone wants to go through all that for a simple back injury? This close to the accident?
Like I said - getting an attorney after you is a bullying technique. They want you to get scared.
Hold your poise! No shaking in yer boots, ok ?
Get it reported to your insurance company (keep your fingers crossed coverage will be in order) and let them sic their injury adjusters on the attorney. He will have to WORK for the money he is trying to rip off the other guy for.
Ok, so.....you're calling your insurance company now, right?
It doesn't sound like you need an attorney right now. If you do - and your insurance is in order - your insurance company will provide a defense for you.
Oh - and make a police report. Better late than never. (Btw - that is a requirement of your policy. Shhhhhhh)
What Justification For Requiring Witness In Court To Swear Or Affirm Their Answers Are Truthful?
Yet Attorneys And Law Enforcement In The Field Are Not Held To The Same Standard. Which Allows Twisted Theories To Be Presented As Factual Evidence, And Exculpatory Details Exonerating A Defendant To Be Undisclosed To The Court.
All witnesses, including attorneys and law enforcement, are required to swear or affirm to tell the truth when testifying in court or in depositions.
Theories are not evidence, but may be included in the prosecutor's or defense attorney's arguments.
Exculpatory evidence is admissible. It happens hundreds of times a day in trial courts in every state. If it did not happen in your trial, ask your appellate attorney why such evidence was not offerred.
Where Can I Get Some Legal Help For Free?
It does depend on your issue and your situation but yes, look to your local bar association for some help about pro bono legal assistance. You may also benefit from a local law school's legal clinic program -- if there is a law school in your area, contact them about clinic or pro bono representation. Depending upon your issue/situation, most attorneys will at minimum, initially consult with you for no cost. Good luck. (Free often costs more than you'd expect.)
Texas Divorce Question?
I Left My Husband A Few Days Ago With Our 3 Year Old Son. I Told My Husband I Neede A Few Days To Think. I'M Staying At My Dads Which Is An Hour Away. All I Took Was Some Clothes And The Car. Well He'S Taken All Our Money Out Of The Checking Acct And Is Threatening Me With Changing The Locks On The House To Keep Me From Getting Anything Else Out Of There And Taking The Car, Which Is In His Name. He Put Sprint Family Locator On Our Phones Yesterday And Has Been Keepibg Track Of Everywhere I Go. Calling Me All Hours Of The Day And Nite With Threats Abt Making Sure Our Son Doesn'T End Up With Me. Anyway, My Question Is, I'M Seeing A Lawyer Tomorrow Abt Starting The Divorce, And I Would Like To Get A Few Things From My House Today. Just Things I Need. Nothing Big And Nothing That Clearly Isn'T Mine. But I'M Getting Conflicting Advice Abt It My Dad Is Telling Me To Wait Until I'Ve Seen A Lawyer Before Going Up There For Any Reason But Friends Are Saying Go Now. I Already Told My Husband I'D Bring Our Son Up There And He Could Visit With Him While I Got Some Stuff. My Dad Thinks He Might Try To Take Off With My Son. I'M Not Sure He Would But U Never Really Know. Should I Go Today Or Wait Til After I See A Lawyer?
Either wait until you speak with your attorney or try to get a deputy sheriff to go with you to the home to collect what essentials you need. Stop discussing your issue with your 'friends' and do not take advice from them. They are acting on emotion, not common sense. Your dad seems to be the only one who is actually thinking. There is nothing in that house you cannot do without right now....unless you left your next breath there.

Is There Anywhere Online To Print Divorce Or Annulment Forms For Idaho?
I Live In Elko County, Nv And I Cannot Seem To Find Anywhere Online To Print Forms For Divorce Or Annulment ( I Would Prefer Annulment)... Is There A Generic Form? I Keep Looking And The Best I'Ve Found Is That I Need To Go To Elko And Go To The Courthouse To Get The Forms (A 2 Hour Drive)... Is There Anywhere I Can Get Them Online So I Can Already Have Em Filled Out Before I Go?
There are several resources in Nevada for online court forms. There are statewide divorce forms available at the first related source below. It's normally better to use the form provided by the court you are filing in; in your case that's the 4th Judicial District Court in Elko. Their forms are at the second source below - but if you go to that source and select "Domestic Court Forms" you will be directed to LawHelp Nevada (a Legal Services agency) where you have to search for divorce forms. I did that for you; the forms are at the third source below.
Depending on which type of divorce you need (contested or not, with children or not), the forms are actually the same from either source. Some of the forms from the first source can be filled out online and then printed. But the forms at the third source come in a "packet" with explanations and instructions. I suggest you check both sources and see which works best.
You will note that it's not that easy to fill out and file a divorce form. As the form instructions themselves state, it's always better to have a lawyer. If you can't afford one, Nevada has some very good "self-help" resources. Click the fourth source below for links to Elko District Court resources (just scroll down to "Self help, legal research...."). You can also continue scrolling to "Legal aid, free services..." to find legal aid resources that can help you for free or little cost. This page is where I found the forms links, too.
You will also note that there are no annulment forms online. The court may or may not have such a form. You don't have to go there to find out; you can call them. The contact information for the clerk's office is at the last source below. The clerk cannot help you fill out the forms, but can tell you which forms you need, and whether or not there is a form for annulment.
