4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you want a legal representative for any excuse, you need to work closely using them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could learn about 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 data they need to help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each and every time. The truth is, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

I Need Lawyer Advice?
At Work I Injured Myself, I Was Lifting A Heavy Box And Hurt My Shoulder, Im Not Sure How Bad The Injury Is Yet But Im Finding Out On Monday. Before I Lifted The Box I Told My Boss That It Was Too Heavy And That I Couldnt Do It, He Said You Can Do It, And I Ended Up Injurying Myself. Im Not Sure If I Should File A Lawsuit Or What? Would It Even Be Worth It? What Type Of Compinsation Should I Ask For? Just Wondering. Thanks.
If you are injured on the job and it requires medical attention then your employer must file under Workers Comp. If you did not file an accident/incident report when it happened then file one asap and talk to an attorney as soon as you have a diagnosis of any sort which requires ongoing medical attention or could result in temporary disability either short or long term. The WC system is not called an adversarial system for nothing. The automitic assumption by the employer is that you are a lying cheating malingerer and just out to take them for all you can get so they will be trying to make you out as the dumbest ox they ever hired, a whiner, a shirker, a faker etc, etc,. You might have been employee of the century last week but now you are scum as far as they are concerned. PS the lawyer gets paid out of what ever you get in compensation so you will have little or no expense up front.

I Want To Be A Real Estate Lawyer?
I Want To Be Real Estate Lawyer. I Wanted To Know How Long Is The School Or College For That And How Much They Make A Year
I know real estate lawyers that are rich- and others that are barely getting by.
The best thing would be to find two or three Real Estate lawyers that you might think are doing well and ask them for advise. the money part they may feel is private- I wouldn't ask that- but they may volunteer some earning range when describing the career.
It is very common for professionals to speak with high school or college age people about career choices.
How Long Do You Go To Jail For Drunk Driving?
I was a police officer in California and am now a police officer in Connecticut. Both states, as I know, are similar in that there is no jail time, but is allowed under law, for a first offense. The only confinement is right after arrest with the time spent during booking and/or detoxing. Generally on a first offense any jail time is suspended pending a completion of informal probation (don't have to report to anyone) and an alcohol education class.
Second offenses within a set period (7 yrs?) generally carry a mandatory jail term of a few days with extended probation and license suspension. It becomes a felony with prison time (more than a year) if someone is seriously injured on there is repeated DWI arrests.
It's easy to say don't drink or drive. But give your friends and loved ones a break and get a ride/taxi home. I would hate to wake someday knowing I hurt or killed someone because of my selfish idiotic behavior.
My advice is to forget the lawyer and go the the first arrainment on a first offense and just listen to the Judge and Prosecutor and see what they have to offer. If you don't like it get a lawyer later. You don't have to enter a plea, but if you know what you did you might save some money and take what is on the table.
Can My Attorney Quit?
My Attorney Keeps Threatning To Resign As My Attorney If I Refuse To Settle My Case Out Of Court And Is Making Accuations That Are Not True I Have Never Agreed To Settle For The Amount Offered.And He Insest I Did.Can He Quit My Case?I Want To Go To Court.
Your attorney can file a Motion/Request to Withdraw, which must be noticed-up for a hearing, in which you can (and should) attend. There are really only two reasons we ever withdraw from a case: 1) non-payment; or 2) inability to communicate with client, i.e., disconnected telephone for a period of time and client fails to keep an open line of communication (via e-mail, cell, etc.); or 2) we've forwarded paperwork to our client that needs to be responded too in a timely fashion and the client simply will not respond back to us after several requests (it's impossible to represent a client without an open line of communication).
If I were you, I would:
1. Drop this attorney ASAP! You simply do not want him representing you any longer, as he is not respecting your wishes (within reason), nor probably looking out for your best interests. I have to wonder if you signed any type of "Contingency Fee Agreement" (agreement wherein he gets a percentage of your settlement, as that is the only reason I can rationalize him taking such a harsh stance with you settling before a trial. This is unethical, amongst other things, so long as you did not sign something agreeing to the same and did not completely understand what you were agreeing too!
2. I would call your State's Bar Association to discuss this complaint, as well as find out if he's been in any prior trouble with the Bar Association (many attorneys that do not practice "honorably" have had prior troubles, and not many people know or think to check before they retain counsel.)
3. Start attorney shopping immediately, as well as make sure you have gathered everything you have pertaining to your case so that attorney not only knows what has been done thus far (all pleadings can be obtained from the Court), etc. If you have difficulty with selecting an attorney, the Bar Assocation should also have a list of attorney's who practice in certain areas of law, and they can refer you to one that is compentent in that area.
Good luck, and you were smart to ask questions before caving-in to his demands. At a minimum, you can find an attorney in the phone book that offers a "free consultation", and get his advice before making a decision. He would at least be able to review any sort of "fee agreement" you may have signed with your attorney.
Custody Rights Of Me?
I'M 15. I Live In St. Louis, Missouri.
I'M Trying To Go Live With My Dad In Conyers, Georgia. My Mom Told Me That My Dad Has No Legal Rights To Me Because He Is 200K Behind In Child Support (But He Doesn'T Have To Pay It Anymore). Then Again, My Mom Is A Liar About Many Many Things So It Is Very Hard To Believe What She Says.
Aren'T I Old Enough To Decide Who I Wanna Live With? My Mother Is A Hoarder And She Is A Very Controlling Woman. A Very Angry Woman Too. Never Happy. I Just Went To Court Because My Mom Lied Tothe Police And Told Them I Punched Her. Now I'M On Probation For 6 Months To A Year.
She Has Really Caused Some Damage In My Life. I Cannot Stand Living With Her. She Literally Keeps Me In My House All Day Everyday With No Contact With Friends. (Snuck On My Itouch Right Now If You'Re Wondering How I'M On The Internet) And I'M Slowly Becoming Depressed And She Yells At Me For Being Depressed. I'M So Sick Of Dealing With Her. Nothin Pleases Her.
But Anyways, Would I Be Able To Take Her To Court And Fight For Me Being Able To Live With My Father? What Would I Have To Prove To The Court And How Would I Go About This?
If your father wants custody, he needs to consult his attorney and file the appropriate documents in court. While you are a minor, a judge decides which parent has custody.
While you are a minor, you have no right to sue. An adult (in this case, your father) has to bring a case to court.
Whether or not your father is in arrears in payment of child support does not have any legal bearing on his visitation rights. It may, however, be an indicator to the court that he has not acted as a responsible parent. It might also indicate to the court that, if he cannot afford to pay child support, he certainly would not be able to support a teenager in his home.
Go to your school counselor and tell her about your depression. Ask for a referral for a clinical social worker or psychologist to help you. You are in a very tough situation.
