4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want a legal representative for any excuse, you should work closely along with them so that you can win your case. Irrespective of how competent these are, they're gonna need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're planning to reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - particularly information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they need to help them win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, each time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last second details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important so as to prove to the court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Majoring In Business Law?
So I Really Am Considering Becoming A Business Lawyer. So I Want To Major In Econ. But Honestly Can Someone Tell Me Where I Will End Up With That Degree.. I Mean I Know I Have To Get Into The Under Grad Program At Some University, Then Take The Lsat Get Into A Law School, Then Take The Bar Exam, But Then What? I Just Made Everything Sound Easy, But I Know It Is Very Very Hard.
I Mean I Want To Work In Big Corporations Such As Chanel Or Gucci Or Yahoo.. So Can One Who Becomes A Business Lawyer End Up In The Companies Like Those?
You will "major" in looking for employment. The reality is the economy, which has dramatically changed. Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years....
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)

My Husband And I Bought A Used Bmw 6 Months Ago With Your Standard 30 Day Warranty On Engine And Drivetrain. The Second Day We Had It The Transmission Was Slipping Out Of Gear. We Took It To The Dealer And He Has Done Nothing Even With Legal Action Pending. Recently We Have Had To File Ch 13,And Unfortunately This Guy Repo'D The Car 1 Day Before Our Case Was Filed. This Was 3 Months Ago And This Guy Refuses To Return The Car And Our Attornies Now Say They Will Have To File A Motion And Seek Sanctions Against Him. Is There A Way To Still Hold Him Accountable For The Repair Of The Transmission Which He Refused Against His Written Contract. The Estimated Cost Is 3000.00. We Have Already Put 5000.00 Dollars Towards This Car And The Total Price Was 8500.00. Thanx
Kitty, You already have legal counsel. Since you are involved in a bankruptcy proceeding everything you do should be done after consultation with your attorney. Use the expertise at your fingertips and for which you are already paying. Best of Luck.
Wills And Power Of Attorney?
If My Mum Has Power Of Attorney For My Nana, Can Another Member Of Family Make A Will For My Nana, Who Has Dementia, Without Anyone Else Knowing?
If your mother has power of attorney for her mother, she can make all decisions regarding her mother while she (nana) is alive.
Re a will, nobody can make a will for another person, ever. The will has to be signed in the presence of 2 other witnesses, so nobody can falsify the signature. If someone else is trying to make a will in her name, they are comitting a crime.
Social Security Law Question?
In 2011 I Got A Settlement For A Workman'S Comp Injury That Happened In 2010. This Was Delayed Because I Had An Mva In 2011. I Earned $22,800 And A Settlement For $13,000 That Year . I Was Approved Fro Ssdi Back To The Mva And Back Paid Until That Time For $13,000. In 2012 I Tried To Work Before I Was Ever Approved For Ssdi I Earned $6000, Got $8000 In Sick Pay ( I Paid For Through Work) I Was Approved For Ssdi Back To My Mva Because Of Some Serious Injuries That Prevent Me From Maybe Ever Working Again. I Am Worried I May Have To Pay It Back. The Car That Hit Me Had Almost No Insurance I Have Had Tremendous Medical Expenses And Had To Pay People To Care For Me. I Was Very Self Sufficient Before The Accident And The Injury. I Even Finished School Which Would Have Given Me An Income Of Almost 70K Annually. If I Could Work I Would Not Want Ssdi.
You asked about the law; I am answering your question. Just because you don't like my answer doesn't mean that my answer is incorrect. You are required by law to report the receipt of worker's comp but you should know that already - you were certainly advised of reporting responsibilities when you filed and again in the award letter you received from social security. Ignorance of your reporting instructions is not an acceptable excuse; it merely means that you failed to read the material and letters you have received from social security which clearly indicates what it is you are required to report.
Under federal law social security plus worker's comp cannot exceed 80% of your average monthly wages. When someone receives a worker's comp lump-sum settlement it is prorated by social security in determining what the reduction in your social security benefit amount will be.
You are also required to report work activity. The $8000 won't be held against you because only earnings from work activity count but if you worked and earned over $1040 a month it is an indication that your claim shouldn't have been approved in the first place unless you reported it and they determined that it constituted an unsuccessful work attempt.
You need to report the two events immediately to prevent increasing the amount of any overpayment - if there is an overpayment. Do it now cuz if you don't IRS will - and the overpayment, if there is one, will be even greater than it already is. Those earnings will show up on social security's earnings records for you and the IRS reports any income to social security when a form 1099 is filed or a W2 form.
There is no excuse for your failure to report changes you are required to report because you were provided with the information. If you are overpaid it is your fault and you will be required to repay the overpayment. Social Security will receive any future IRS refunds otherwise due you and if there is an outstanding overpayment when you someday become re-entitled to benefits (even if it's age 62 at retirement) they will collect it then.
When you are advised of the overpayment you will be given 60 days in which to file an appeal and/or a waiver request. Like it or not social security doesn't accept not knowing what you are required to report as an acceptable excuse and you will be found to have been at fault in having caused the overpayment to happen. When a person is at fault in having caused the overpayment the overpayment can't be waived.
Perhaps in the future you will take the time to read any correspondence you receive from social security in its entirety.
My Daughter Was Charged With 5Th Degree Larceny. Should I Hire A Lawyer For Juvenile Court?
My Daughter Is 15 Years Old And Was Charged With 6Th Degree Larceny. She Has A Court Date In Juvenile Court And I Am Not Sure If I Need To Hire A Lawyer. We Are Not Contesting The Charges And I Do Hope This Is A Good Life Lesson For Her.
You definately should see a lawyer.
The lawyer may recommend pleading " not guilty" so he can get less penalty for her.
He may be able to get a diversion ( no criminal record), or...........This is his business to help get juveniles alternative penalties.
Definately see a lawyer; the first visit is usually free.
