4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a lawyer at all, you need to work closely with them as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Listed here are four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most especially information the other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, each time. Actually, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Is It Unethical To Ask For Free Legal Advice From 2 Diff. Lawyers For The Same Legal Problem?
Both Lawyers Give Free Legal Advice: One Through The Internet By Email And The Other Over The Radio Live Or Phone-In Or Through Text Messages.
There are many examples where people hire many lawyers in one case. Multi-national companies hire many big lawyers in a single matter, just to stop them from hiring by the opposite party.
There is no legal as well as ethical problem in your case. And after all there is no 'consideration' involved in your relationship with both of them. You niether have any contractual relationship with them nor there is any "agency" relationship. So go ahead you need not worry about the ethical aspect.
Also you are not bound to disclose to any of them that you are simultaneously seeking advice from someone else.
What Was It Like Having A Social Security Disability Lawyer Working On Your Claim?
I Don'T Feel Like My Disability Attorney Has Been Trying To Win My Case, But I Don'T Know What'S Normal Or What I Should Expect. I Want To Know What Other People Experienced With Their Social Security Disability Lawyer, So I Can See How It Compares To Mine. Here Are Some Questions:
How Many Times Did You Speak With Your Attorney? (I'M Only Interested In How Many Times You Spoke Directly With Your Attorney, Not Their Assistant.)
What Kind Of Information Did Your Lawyer Get From You?
Did He/She Talk To You About Your Past Job Duties Or Have You Fill Out Any Questionnaires?
Did Your Lawyer Or Someone From His/Her Office Help You Fill Out Any Of The Paperwork From The Ssa?
What Did Your Lawyer Do To Prepare You For Your Hearing? Did He Meet With You Beforehand? If So, How Long Before? In General, What Did You Discuss? Did You Go Over Your File Together Or Talk About How You Should Answer The Judges Questions Etc.?
How Involved Was Your Lawyer During Your Actual Hearing? Did He/She Present Any Evidence Or Ask You Any Questions? Did Your Lawyer Ask The Vocational Expert Any Questions?
Anything Else You Can Think Of?
I Really, Really Appreciate Anyone Who Can Take A Few Minutes To Answer My Questions. This Is Very Important To Me.
First there is no reason to retain the services of an attorney until AFTER you've filed the request for a hearing. Once the hearing has been filed there isn't much an attorney can do until close to the time the hearing is held. My sister filed for disability based upon a mental disorder and shortly after she got her attorney he arranged a consultative exam. It was two years before the hearing was held and that was her only contact with him until they were both notified of the hearing.
Many, but not all, of the attorneys send their secretaries or clerks to the social security office to photocopy all of the medical related records in the social security file - don't know what they do now since SS has gone paperless and everything is scanned into the computers. Perhaps they have access via computer.
I can only tell you that people who have an attorney who is familiar with social security disability law and regulations have an edge over those who don't especially if the attorney is aware of the vocational aspects of the law and how they apply to the disabled. Those attorneys can generally provide a strong case taking into account the medical evidence and vocational aspects of the case.
I was allowed into the hearing room for my sister's hearing and her attorney brought up points he wanted the ALJ to consider which wouldn't otherwise have been raised by my sister. The ALJ paid absolutely no attention to the lengthy report the psychiatrist wrote up who set up by my sister's attorney - the ALJ actually said that he thought it was worthless because, obviously, the psychiatrist would say whatever the attorney wanted him to say. But that was that ALJ (I was shocked to tell you the truth) - doesn't mean all ALJs would disspell a report simply because the psychiatrist represented my sister and her attorney.
All in all, if I had a claim pending with social security and filed for a hearing, I would sure get myself an attorney and I would recommend others do so as well.
There were two attorneys who often represented SS and SSI claimants in the six counties my office serviced and I wish I could have told their clients to get someone else - but we couldn't do that - I suspect many a claimant lost benefits because of them. One of them never filed anything on time and claimants actually lost out on appeals because that attorney was supposed to have filed the appeals for them and he never did. Claimants should always file their own appeals.
Questions On Criminal Lawyer
What Type Of Job Is This?
Is This Similar To Defence Lawyer?
What Type Of Crime Do Crimnal Lawyers Deal With?
Criminal lawyers are one of two types. Prosecutors work for a government agency (Federal, state or local) and they prosecute people who are charged with crimes. Defense lawyers defend those folks. Defense lawyers are usually in private practice, either in a firm or on their own but some work for the public defender's office. The type of crimes that a specific lawyer in private practice will defend is up to that lawyer.
Intoxilyzer 5000 Hose Broke During Dui/Dwi Testing In Minnesota. Do I Have A Defense?
I Was Charged With A Dui. I Was Taken Into The Station And Did All The Neccesarily Procedures. My First Test Showed A .286 (No Way I Was That High), The Second Sample On The Test Not Meeting The .02 Agreement, Showed A .263. After The Test, The Officer Noticed The Hose Was Broken, Or Something To That Extent. The Last Test Ending At 2:26 A.M. He Then Was Working On The Machine, Changing The Hose I Believe ( I'M Not An Expert On These Machines). At 3:12 My Final Reported Value Was .23 G/210 L. In The Police Report I Would Have Assumed That The Officer Would Have Noted That The Machine &Quot;Broke&Quot; Ie: Hose Breaking, But There Was No Note Of It In The Police Report. I Know There Is A Lot Of Speculation On The Accuracy Of The Intolyzer... Could There Be Human Error? I Have A Lawyer But Am Looking For Some Information On My Own. It Seems Like The Two Tests, First Being .289 And The Second Going Down To A .23 In A 40 Minute Period Seems Very Strange And Almost Like The Test Was Innacurate. Any Advice/Suggestions Would Be Helpful...
You might have a defense, until the prosecutor plays the footage of your field sobriety test and your breathalyzer test. If, however, in those tests you appear sober then the footage of the officer playing with the machine would likely sway the jury. Juries are confused by breathalyzer machines. The prosecutor may put on an expert witness to testify as to the accuracy of the machine who, ironically, will only confuse the jury more. In the end, the jury will make their determination by what they see in the videotape.
Is Homeland Security And Law Enforcement The Same Thing?
Homeland security is facet of criminal justice policing that primarily focuses on investigation, interception, and detection of external threats (customs, immigration, smuggling, foreign terrorist threat), as opposed to state and local policing that focus on domestic crimes against persons and property. A Bachelor's degree is required for federal special agent positions (very few exceptions) and the maximum age is 37. Any major is acceptable, but CJ, Computer Science, Sociology, Accounting, or Psych may stand you in better stead for most positions. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants, and there are always more applicants than positions. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds, with at least 3 years of substantive employment (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). The same could be said for the Secret Service, their primary duties (outside of protection) involve financial crimes and counterfeiting. Any responsible employment may acceptable, but law enforcement may be beneficial (particularly investigative rather than patrol). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx.
The FBI in particular needs people capable of investigating major frauds and conspiracies involving numerous business and technical occupations and professions; whereas, local police are more oriented to street crime. Federal agents must be capable of understanding and communicating at a level above that usually expected from patrol officers. Federal agencies are looking for people who fit in at all social strata, and the expectations are greater with regard to preparation of reports and affidavits. In my experience, state and local officers have their affidavits written by prosecutors; whereas, federal agents write their own.
Being a military officer will normally be advantageous, and military service usually provides veteran preference in the hiring process. However, enlisted service will not necessarily enhance one’s prospects, unless in a specialized position or exemplary service is documented. Military police assignments will not necessarily provide an advantage over infantry assignments, and the branch of service is not necessarily important. Being a practicing attorney or accountant would also place one in a good position. Forensic computer expertise and language capabilities are valued in all agencies.
You are more likely to be successful if you do not restrict yourself to one agency. Moreover, agents get hired from other agencies regularly. If you have proven yourself in another agency (particularly federal), you will have an advantage for FBI hiring. Being a police officer may be helpful, depending on personal performance, assignments, and agency reputation.
I recommend that people major in psych and minor in CJ (even though I majored in CJ for a BS and PhD, with a Masters in management [sponsored by and on government time]). The academic specialization for a graduate degree is not necessarily important.
GPA (above 3.5 is a plus), testing, physical fitness, work experience, possibly a polygraph, ability to communicate orally and in writing, possibly physical test results, and graduate degrees are what determine who gets hired. And, I repeat, there are always more applicants than there are positions.
There are numerous special agent positions (see list below, not all have full arrest, search, and seizure authority), in what was and I assume still is the 1811 job series (1810 are unarmed investigators without arrest authority). There are also law enforcement related positions in the Dept of Homeland Security and other agencies, such as inspector positions or Border Patrol agents, that could be open to those with 2 years of college or less. And, there are federal police officers within federal agencies (e.g., Dept of Veterans Affairs, Treasury, Federal Protective Service). Agencies:
ATF, Customs and Border Protection (uniform wearing: Border Patrol Agent, Officers), DEA, Dept of Def, Dept of State, Dept of Homeland Sec (ICE, TSA)
Dept of Labor, EPA, FBI, FDA, Fish & Wildlife (few positions, many applicants), Inspector General Offices within departments and/or agencies, IRS, Marshals Service, Secret Svc, Securities Exchange Commission, and each branch of the Armed Forces (some civilian, some active duty).
Apply at as many places as possible, and accept the first offer. Then, if that’s not where you want to be, keep applying to the agency you want.
