4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal representative at all, you must work closely using them as a way to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Here are four important approaches to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each and every time. The truth is, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared 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 type of crime, it's important to be able to convince a legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. For 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 chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Are Legal Aid Lawyers Any Good?
Are They Usually Young And Inexperienced?
It depends on the lawyer. Some lawyers are inherently good and some are not.
Young/new lawyers often tend to make up for their lack of experience with their dedication and hard work. On my very first case (before I was actually licensed as an attorney - I was still an intern practicing under my supervising attorney's law license), I read every single case that was related to the case I was working on. I literally spend hundreds of hours on research. I won the case in Superior Court against an attorney with 15 years experience. The defendant appealed and hired a second law firm that specialized in appeals court work. This was my first time in the Appellate Court. And I won again. (And the first law firm I defeated actually offered me a job . . . which I didn't accept.) The defendant appealed to the state's Supreme Court and hired a law firm that specialized in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. I won again.
I am considered a pretty good attorney. Today I have about eight years of experience, and I only work in legal aid because I like the freedom of being able to represent clients who genuinely need help and DESERVE help without having to worry about how that client is going to pay me.
Oklahoma Property Law Question?
I Have Approx. 7 Acres That Has Been Fenced For 20+ Yrs . My Neighbor Has Passed Away And The New Owners Are Trying To Move The Fence. Could You Help Direct Me To The Proper Laws That Address This Issue?
If you can possibly work this out with your new neighbor, then I would work something out with them. If you strongly oppose your new neighbors moving the fence, then you should consult a local real estate attorney. If the fence has been situated in its current position for twenty years, then the land that you have fenced is considered to be owned by you. It is called Boundary Line by Agreement, and if it were to go to court, you most likely would win the case, but again, it is always better to work things out if you can.
A property line may be determined to be different than as was stated on the previous Warranty Deed, and it is known as "Boundary Line By Agreement". If this is your case, the owners have agreed that a certain line will be the property line even though they know it is not the actual deeded property line. When there has been such an agreement and the condition has existed for as you have stated, over twenty years, then the actual legal property line becomes that which they have agreed on previously. This type of problem often happens when one of the agreeing owners sells his property and the new owner wants to move a fence that has existed for years under the previous owner's agreement with the neighbor. Again, if you cannot work things out with your new neighbor, please consult a local attorney. I hope this has helped you. Good luck!
Becoming A Lawyer/Attorney?
So I'M In 10Th Grade And Like Most Others My Age, I'M Thinking About What I Want To Be And The Kind Of Colleges I Want To Apply For. I'M Currently Thinking About Being A Lawyer, Its Well Paid, Doesn'T Require A Ridiculous Amount Of Schooling (7-8 Years), And The Job Itself Appeals To Me (I Can See Myself Working In A Law Office And Courtroom). So I'M Wanting To Know What It Takes To Make A Decent Living As A Lawyer And What I Should Look Into Schooling Wise. I Understand That Law Is A Very Broad Field But What I'M Looking At Is Being A Private Attorney Working For A Firm, I Don'T Care About Being In A Top Firm And Making Tons Of Money ($80,000+ Works For Me). So Is It Necessarily Difficult To Achieve This And Would I Have An Issue Finding A Job? I Haven'T Took The Act/Sats Yet But I Currently Have A 4.0 Gpa And I'M Tied For 1St In My Class (However I See My Gpa Dropping This Year Due To Difficult Classes But I Am Determined To Keep It Above 3.5), I'M In Afjrotc Where I Have Held A Total Of Five Leadership Positions, I'M In The Kitty Hawk Honor Society (Rotc Equivalent To National Honor Society), I'M On Drill Team (Military Competitive Marching), I Used To Be Both A Cub Scout And Boy Scout, And By The End Of My Hs Years I Will Have A 100 Plus Hours Of Community Service And Volunteer Work. Not To Mention I'M Joining The Military After Hs So Would Being A Veteran Help Any? Duke University Currently Appeals To Me (Its In The Top 14 Law Schools) But Is It Unrealistic?
I am a third year law student. So far your resume sounds great! However, schools average your GPA with your LSAT score when considering applications. So until you take the LSAT which you will not do for another 6 years or so there is no way of knowing your chances of getting in Duke until i know that. I have heard that philosophy majors do the best on the LSAT. One caveat, if i were you i would plan on going to the school that offers the biggest scholarship. If you don't plan on working in big law then it doesn't matter if you go to a tier 2 or tier 3 school. Even though 80,000 sounds like a lot, when you have 100,000 + in debt and want to buy a new car or a house that seriously hinders you. I know practicing attorneys who were forced into jobs they didn't want because they had to pay off their debt. My law school charges more than 40,000 a year, but I am on a full scholarship and it feels great to be able to graduate debt free. I am one of the fortunates who has a job when i graduate this May, and if you excel in law school as much as you have in high school I am sure you will have no problem getting a job.
Joining the military will be just another factor they will consider and it looks good, but why are you going to the military instead of undergraduate? if you know you want to be a lawyer go straight to undergrad.

Can A Paroled Father Get Joint Custody?
A Father Has Been Paroled Since July And Wants Joint Custody Of His Son, Can He Get This.
Two different answers here depending upon the type of custody you are asking about. . . Legal or Physical? Note this is based upon CA law. . .
Legal custody is the authority to decide where the child goes to school, religion, vacations, medical care, etc. It is very difficult to get sole Legal custody of a minor child because the court does not like taking away these rights form a parent unless there is a serious harm to the child. So if the parole is for a sex crime, or drugs you may be able to get sole Legal Custody, but otherwise likely not.
Physical custody is who is taking care of the child. It is difficult to get sole Physical custody (not as difficult as legal though). Sole physical custody would mean NO CONTACT by the farther. The court does believe that contact with the farther is in most cases beneficial to the child. If this contact would be harmful to the child would it be limited. The court is likely to limi the contact to visits (either supervised or unsupervised) before they Will remove all contact from one parent.
It will be difficult for you to remove parental rights from a parent unless they have done something that will harm the child. . . Good luck. . . Make sure to love your Son more than you may dislike his father. . .
