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.

Are You A Realtor Or Real Estate Attorney?
I Discovered That My Landlord Has Not Paid Taxes And Assessments Since Dec. 2008 On The Property That I'Ve Rented For 2 Years. My Gut Is Telling Me He'S Going To Foreclose And I'M Trying To Find Out What My Rights Are As A Renter. If The House Does Go Into Foreclosure, Will I Get My Security Deposit Back? How Long Will I Be Able To Stay In The Property After I Get Notice Of The Foreclosure? I Live In California. Any Advice Would Greatly Be Appreciated!
Consult a California attorney. Laws vary from state to state, but here in Florida, and in your situation, a tax certificate will be sold shortly as real property taxes are unpaid, and after a year, the home will be sold on the court house steps. In reality, many renters are simply "squatting" in these homes that are destined for either foreclosure, or tax sale, and that may mean in your state that time is on your side, and you can live rent free for a time. Remember; your money is always best in your account during these tough times in real estate.
Legal Advise - California Family Court/Law?
I Have Been Paying Child Support For The Majority Of My 15 Year Olds Life. She Has Come To Live With Me Full Time, And Her Mother And I Need To Stop The Child Support Garnishment. She Is Totally On Board And Will Sign Anything To Do This But I Dont Know What Paperwork To Submit To The Courts. We Have Never Done This Before Without A Conflict. Do I Still Need To File A Declaration? Pleae Help. She Has Been Signing The Checks Over To Me Thus Far, But It Is A Hassle Always Having To Meet Her To Get The Money, And The Bank Doesnt Like Me Depositing Checks Made Out To Her From Me Going Back Into My Bank
Thank You I Will Give The Best Answer To You If You Can Help Me Out
You do absolutely need to go back to court to have the child support order rescinded and one enacted against the mother of the child (support is the right of the child no matter if the non-custodial parent is male or female). Family court will give you the forms but you will still have a court date. You can also accomplish this fairly quickly as far as stopping the payment.
Good for the two of you for having a good enough relationship to do this - you have a lucky kid.
Can I Get Charged For Missing A Legal Consultation Appointment?
I Set Up A Consultation With An Attorney A Couple Days Ago Via Phone And Gave The Law Office My Name And Number, But Decided To Meet With A Different Attorney Instead. Is There Someway That They Can Charge Me (They Charge $165.00 An Hour For A Consultation) For Missing The Appointment Without Calling In Advance? All They Have Is My Name And Number (Which Means They Could Probably Get Other Information Pretty Easily). Or Am I Just Being Completely Paranoid?
Yes, you can get charged for missing a legal consultation. I am a paralegal and I've hunted down people with only their name. We have our ways, databases and legal subscriptions. If a good paralegal knows enough about your situation, and any other information such as who and what the consultation was about, they can get your address.
However, with that said, if they didn't ask for your full information, they probably don't charge for missed appointments. Not all law firms charge for the missed time. It takes too much effort to chase down non-clients.
I Have Been Going To My Dr. For 3 Years Now And Trust Her Completely. She Has Had Me On Seroquel And Wellbutrin For 2 Years And Just Decided To Up My Dosage Of Wellbutrin (Against My Wishes). I Didn'T Have A Reason To Raise The Dose, She Just Said She Wanted To. Well After 1 Week Of Taking The Higher Dose I Had A Seizure (Thank Goodness I Wasn&Quot;T Driving My Son Anywhere!!!) I Fell Off A Really High Chair And Broke My Nose, Lacerated It Resulting In Many Stitches And A Nasty (Soon To Be) Scar And Had A Concussion. When I Went In To See Her After This Event She Said She Knew She Shouldn'T Have Increased The Dose With My Past Medical History Of Bulima (I Guess The Pdr Says Not To Give To Bulima Patients) And She Said That She Also Has Had Another Pt. Have A Seizure At The Higher Dose Too. And The Pdr Says That The Higher Dose Has A High Risk Of Seziures. Should I Sue? I'Ve Racked Up A Lot Of Bills, Had To Drop Out Of School B/C Of The Concussion And Missed 1 Month Of Work.
I'm sorry you had to go through this. Medical malpractice is a negligence issue. However, instead of holding the doctor to an "ordinary reasonable person" standard, we hold them to the standard of the average member of the local medical community, or in the case of a specialist, to the National Standard.
Where it gets tricky is that you MUST present expert testimony to prove a medical malpractice case. Your expert must be knowledgeable about psych meds, must say that your doctor made a choice that was unreasonable, and that didn't meet the medical standard for whatever level your doctor is to be held to.
It's sometimes very difficult to find a doctor who is willing to testify against another doctor, and it can get very expensive. Look in the yellow pages for an attorney who handles med mal, and see if they will give you a no-charge consultation. If you have a good case, they may take it on contingency. Otherwise, this is going to get expensive for you.
Good luck. Namaste.
