4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you really need a lawyer for any excuse, you have to work closely using them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're planning to need your help. Listed here are four important strategies to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most importantly information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All 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. In fact, because you may want to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Legal Immigration Advice?
Im In Need Of Some Legal Advice Concerning A Green Card Holder Marrying An Alien. Not, Not The Type From Mars. Anyway, I've Gotten To A Point I'm Really Getting Fed Up With All The Procedures And Paperwork And Forms To Fill Out, Tht Im Considering Just Leaving This Country.
Here Goes, Iv Bn Here For 5 Yrs On A Green Card. I've Also Left My Fiancee Back Home While She Was Studyin Medicine. Shes's Done Now, And Has Graduated. I'v Also Finished My 5 Yrs Here Makin Me Elligible For Us Citizenship. I Sent The Paperwork This Weekend. Now Im Lookin To Bring My Fiancee Over Here. Rmbr, Its Bn 5 Long Yrs, N Im Lookin To Get Her Here Real Fast(Legally Of Course).
Now I Knw The Spouse Visa Is A Possibility, But Im Not Citizen Yet. God Knws Il B Citizen After A Yr Or So.
The Fiancee Visa Is A Possibility, Once Again, Im Stil A Green Card Holder.
Is There Anything Else I Can Try? I Dont Care If The Paperwork Takes Forever, Just As Long As Shes Here With Me Soon. Any Help Is Appreciated. N Please, If U Have Nothin To Say, Please Dont. I Cant Be Stretched Any More. Thank You. Perhaps I Shud Look Into Goin To Uk Or Something. Iv Always Liked Europe.
Only US citizens can file I-129F for an alien fiancee, so that option is out of the window at the moment.
You could file for a spousal visa as a green card holder, and once your citizenship is approved, you can have the I-130 application upgraded to get an immediate visa number. Still, you'd be looking at 8-10 months on top of the time it takes for your N-400 to be approved.
Because you're not a citizen, any route she pursues to enter the US based on you is going to be slow. It would be faster for her to look at her own ways of entering the country if you wanted to get it done fast, such as through a student visa. A work visa is always a hard thing to go after, they are all gone on the same day they are made available. Unless she already has a job offer it's going to be tough.
If you're originally from the UK, it is easier going back to the UK and getting married and being together. However, the time away from the US is always going to hold you back from citizenship and you're still eventually going to face the same time frame problems of not being a citizen when it comes to petitioning for an alien relative.
It's a toss up between waiting for your N-400 to be approved and then filing I-129F for a fiancee visa, or get started on an I-130 now and upgrade it when your N-400 is approved. It's going to be pretty much the same time frame either way.
Can You Help With Business Law?
True Or False...
1. Nella Offers To Sell Her Crop Of Strawberries, Which Have Just Been Picked, To Morgan’S Market. Since She Does Not Specify A Time Limit For Acceptance, Morgan’S Can Accept The Offer The Following Week, As Long As Nella Has Not Revoked It
2. Under The Ucc, The Mirror Image Rule Applies Strictly
3. A Letter Of Intent Summarizes Progress Made During Business Negotiations, But It Does Not Necessarily Create A Binding Contract.
1) -- True.
2) -- The 2-207 Statute is a bit confusing.
However, the Uniform Commercial Code generally governs the law of transaction. --
This is how the Mirror image law works:
The mirror image rule and its application to contract law states that an OFFER and ACCEPTANCE must mirror each other or no contract is formed.
So, in order for a contract to be formed, an ACCEPTANCE of an offer must be absolute, unconditional, and identical with the terms of the offer.
So if a person makes an OFFER and the person to whom the OFFER is made accepts CONDITIONALLY or introduces a new term to the acceptance this allows for rejection of the offer and serves as a counter offer which then said COUNTER OFFER must be ACCEPTED before a contract can result.
So in regards to the offer in the first question about the strawberries this is a mirror image as no conditions were introduced.
A letter of intent is an interim agreement that summarizes the main points of a proposed deal, or confirms that a certain course of action is going to be taken. Thus, Normally, it does NOT constitute a **definitive contract** but merely signifies a genuine interest in reaching the final agreement subject to due diligence, additional information, or fulfillment of certain conditions.
Hope that helps,

How Do I Approach This??
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: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
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! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. 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.....Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
**Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.)
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities.<<<<<<<<<<<<
(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.)
What To Major In Before Law School?
I Know For A Fact That I Want To Go To Law School. I Am Only Seventeen But Law Has Been Something I Have Always Been Interested In. I Want To Eventually Become A Lawyer For A Large Corporation. What Are Some Majors That I Should Look Into For College?
Which Out Of These Two Options Should I Do In High School Now In Senior Year: Psychology, Sociology Or Constitutional Law, (P.S. I Can Only Choose One Of Those Three)
You should probably go with constitutional law, since it is law, and it is a subject you will likely be dealing with considering large corps and government work together a lot.
As for courses during undergrad, think of it like this. The law is all about specifics and details. In every major, or grad school focus as well, there are these things called requirements. You want to always get the requirements before they are due. The sooner the better. The way you check this is to go to the chosen university website, find the law school link to their law school, then discover the corporate law department, I recommend you shoot for the stars, you are very young, and have alot of time to invest, go for a top five corporate law school in the nation, one might even be in your state, if money is an issue, that is going to be important.
Once you are in the right website, they will have phone numbers for you to contact, if you want to talk to someone. Would you want to do, is find the list of undergraduate requirements for the corporate law school degree that you that you intend to acquire. Once you have that list you find a major in undergraduate University that will give you a useful degree even if you don't make it through law school. there are certain courses that are intended to 'prepare' you for law school - you should know these are pretty much 101 courses and don't really get you ready for squat. you need to know exactly what you are going to need to know. that is going to be from professionals that don't 'cookie cut' your education - if you don't know what that means, you should learn it.
The reason I say this is because many people want to go to law school and get useless undergraduate degrees then find out they cannot make it through law and are stuck at the age of 24 without a useless university degree , so what you want to do is make the most of the time you do put into school. You will do that by getting a very useful undergraduate degree apparently biology and computer science degrees a pretty popular, but all of that is up to you . Just remember what you need to do is going to be get a useful undergraduate degree, that means a degree that will pay you over 60 - 200,000 dollars a year if you would get a job just using that degree and also remember you have to get certain prerequisites that are listed in the website of the University grad school you are going to. I know lots of people say there are no prerequisites for law school - let me tell you this now - that's bs. you will need to be as savvy and intelligent as you can in order to compete at the corporate law level - than means - science, math, some engineering to deal with contractors trying to stiff your company - history to understand the tricks that have been pulled in the past - etc etc...
best of luck to you, corporate law is cut throat - and remember, this is opinion. -

YOU and YOUR GRANDMOTHER need to see an elder law attorney and have her draft a Last Will and Testament" with her wishes to be carried out when she passes away. This can get very complicated. In our state, if your grandmother went into a nursing home, her house would not be able to be sold or transferred title to anyone until the nursing home fees are paid upon her death. So, be careful not to put any money into her house, as it is her house and the state's financial assurance if a nursing home gets involved during her last days on earth.
This is why you need an elder law attorney. Also, you could very well buy her house for $10.00. But, in our state, the "Look Back" is 7 years, so any transfer in title during that time can very well be undone by the state.
So, see that elder attorney as soon as possible. The perfect scenario is that she dies in her sleep at home and the will protects you so you inherit her estate. But, again, laws vary from state to state and that is why is is ultra important for you to take the time to follow through with your grandmother;s wishes BEFORE she dies, by way of a Last Will and Testament. Really.
