4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want an attorney for any reason, you should work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important ways to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about 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 all the current data they should assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, whenever. In reality, because you might need to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to convince the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

I Want To Become A Criminal Lawyer?
What Are All The Laws A Criminal Layer Should Know Can Someone Please Give Me A Website I Can Find All The Laws Or Codes A Criminal Lawyer Should Know
Lawyers are a dime a dozen, go medical. Heck, there is a shortage of pharmacists and their median wage is $98,000K well above lawyers. Dentists 180,000K median and there is a shortage, and of course a shortage of MDs.
From US News, Poor careers for 2006
Attorney. If starting over, 75 percent of lawyers would choose to do something else. A similar percentage would advise their children not to become lawyers. The work is often contentious, and there's pressure to be unethical. And despite the drama portrayed on TV, real lawyers spend much of their time on painstakingly detailed research. In addition, those fat-salaried law jobs go to only the top few percent of an already high-powered lot.
Many people go to law school hoping to do so-called public-interest law. (In fact, much work not officially labeled as such does serve the public interest.) What they don't teach in law school is that the competition for those jobs is intense. I know one graduate of a Top Three law school, for instance, who also edited a law journal. She applied for a low-paying job at the National Abortion Rights Action League and, despite interviewing very well, didn't get the job.
From the Associated Press, MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A lawmaker who persuaded the Assembly to eliminate all state funding for the University of Wisconsin law school says his reasoning is simple: There's too many lawyers in Wisconsin.
From an ABA study about malpractice claims, More Sole Practicioners: There appears to be an increasing trend toward sole practicioners, due partly to a lack of jobs for new lawyers, but also due to increasing dissatisfaction among experienced lawyers with traditional firms; leading to some claims which could have been avoided with better mentoring.
New Lawyers: Most insurers have noticed that many young lawyers cannot find jobs with established firms, and so are starting their own practices without supervision or mentoring. This is likely to cause an increase in malpractice claims, although the claims may be relatively small in size due to the limited nature of a new lawyers
“In a survey conducted back in 1972 by the American Bar Association, seventy percent of Americans not only didn’t have a lawyer, they didn’t know how to find one. That’s right, thirty years ago the vast majority of people didn’t have a clue on how to find a lawyer. Now it’s almost impossible not to see lawyers everywhere you turn."
Growth of Legal Sector
Lags Broader Economy; Law Schools Proliferate
For graduates of elite law schools, prospects have never been better. Big law firms this year boosted their starting salaries to as high as $160,000. But the majority of law-school graduates are suffering from a supply-and-demand imbalance that's suppressing pay and job growth. The result: Graduates who don't score at the top of their class are struggling to find well-paying jobs to make payments on law-school debts that can exceed $100,000. Some are taking temporary contract work, reviewing documents for as little as $20 an hour, without benefits. And many are blaming their law schools for failing to warn them about the dark side of the job market.
The law degree that Scott Bullock gained in 2005 from Seton Hall University -- where he says he ranked in the top third of his class -- is a "waste," he says. Some former high-school friends are earning considerably more as plumbers and electricians than the $50,000-a-year Mr. Bullock is making as a personal-injury attorney in Manhattan. To boot, he is paying off $118,000 in law-school debt.
A slack in demand appears to be part of the problem. The legal sector, after more than tripling in inflation-adjusted growth between 1970 and 1987, has grown at an average annual inflation-adjusted rate of 1.2% since 1988, or less than half as fast as the broader economy, according to Commerce Department data.
On the supply end, more lawyers are entering the work force, thanks in part to the accreditation of new law schools and an influx of applicants after the dot-com implosion earlier this decade. In the 2005-06 academic year, 43,883 Juris Doctor degrees were awarded, up from 37,909 for 2001-02, according to the American Bar Association. Universities are starting up more law schools in part for prestige but also because they are money makers. Costs are low compared with other graduate schools and classrooms can be large. Since 1995, the number of ABA-accredited schools increased by 11%, to 196.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, the inflation-adjusted average income of sole practitioners has been flat since the mid-1980s. A recent survey showed that out of nearly 600 lawyers at firms of 10 lawyers or fewer in Indiana, wages for the majority only kept pace with inflation or dropped in real terms over the past five years.
Many students "simply cannot earn enough income after graduation to support the debt they incur," wrote Richard Matasar, dean of New York Law

Help With Legal Advice?
If That Is A Possible Option To Fight In Court The Foreclosure Because The Bank Dint Help And Can Make A Deal With Me, Sale The House Somebody Also Cheaper In A Auction, If This Is Not A Discrimination?
You can try to fight it in court but you won't be successful. The bank has no obligation to help you and to make a deal with you, and once they have foreclosed they can sell the house to whomever they want to, at whatever price they want to. It is not discrimination in any way, shape, or form, and there are thousands of other people in the same position.
Can I Get Legal Advice?
I Am 25 Y/O And I Was Trying To Join The Army And I Told The Recruiter I Had A Juvenile And Explained What It Was For. He Told Me Not To Say Anything Because My Record Is Sealed. As Well As I Have A Sub-Facial Cyst On My Face Even Though You Cant See It Unless I Smile He Told Me Not To Smile. Well After Several Day Of Paperwork He Told Me I Ask To Many Damn Questions And To Basically Shut-Up. The Day Of My &Quot;Hot Seat&Quot; He Asked His Commanding Officer About My Juvenile Record So They Had To Look Into It. Well They Did And There Was Something I Didn'T Know About In It. Apparently When I Was 8 I Said Something I Shouldn'T Have And Even Though I Didn'T Go To Court I Received A Felony. The School Has No Record Of This (It Happened At School). And At 7 My Step-Mom Accused Me Of Stealing Something Of $500+ Value And Even Though I Don'T Remember Going To Court I Received Another Felony. After Telling Me &Quot;You Wasted My Time, Get Out Of My Office You Piece Of ****&Quot; And Making Me Walk Home (20+ Miles (I Live In Jacksonville By The Regency Mall And There Office Was By The Orange Park Mall) Which Took Me From 3 Pm- A Little After 1030 Pm) And The Recruiter Told Me To Leave My Phone At Home, And I Didn'T Have Any Money On Me For Anything To Drink. My Family Has No Recollection On The Charge Of Me Stealing At 7 And My Grandmother Said She Heard Something About A Threat I Made At School But She Said It Wasn'T A Terroristic Threat. Now My Question Is There A Way To Join The Military Still? If I Would Have Keep My Mouth Quite Like The Recruiter Told Me Would It Have Been A Big Problem Later Own? And Why Did He Keep Telling Me To Answer No On Everything Even Though I Was Allergic To Bee Stings? And Told Me To Never Say Anything About Breaking My Hand (Told Me It Never Happened). And Told Me To Say I Never Had Surgery Of Any Kind Even Though I Did? Why Was He A Jerk And Why Did He Tell Me To Lie And Get Mad When I Was Trying To Be Honest With Him On Everything So No Surprises Would Pop Up And Me Get Jail Time Or A Fine?
A lot of recruiters are civilians who get paid by the number of recruits. So some will lie, cheat, etc. to get those recruits. There have been a lot of problems with recruiters lying. The worst part is when they lie to recruits - things like telling them they can get out when they want or promising them the job they want. Sadly, even if someone is lied to, they are stuck with joining.
Be fully honest and see what happens. Don't let him talk you into lying.
I also don't believe you. You can't get a felony charge without going to some form of court, especially not as an 8 year old.
If your story is true, you have a lot more problems than this.
Military Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Etc... ????
My Fiancee Is Active Duty Military (Navy). When His Divorce Was Final They Had No Custody Arrangement For The Children, And Now She Is Taking Full Advantage Of This. He Calls 5-6 Times A Week And He Never Gets A Hold Of Her To Talk To His Children. He Has Transferred To Another State And Hasn'T Seen Or Talked To Them In Over 2 Months, And Its Not For The Lack Of Trying. The Only Time He Hears From Her Is When She Asks For More Money &Quot;For The Kids&Quot;. She Is Already Remarried (To The Guy She Cheated On Him With, Whom Also Cheated On His Wife With Her), And He Is In The Navy As Well. There Is No Reason She Should Need More Money To &Quot;Support The Children&Quot;. My Fiancee Would Like To Go To Court To A) Get The Child Support Lowered, B) Get A Custody Arrangement Set Up, And C) Possibly Seek Custody Of The Children. However, He Doesn'T Feel That It Is Possible For Him To Get Any Sort Of Custdoy. The Children Respond Better To Him And He Can Financially Support Them. Any Thoughtsor Suggestions?
Custody is a hard thing. Most states tend to give custody of the children directly to the mother unless the father can prove that the mother is unfit. Being active duty military is even harder. What I would recommend is that he go in and try to atleast get joint custody. Only problem with that is that he and his childrens mother recently live in different states. Maybe the best choice is to ensure that he has written visitation rights. This will make it that if she does not allow him to see the children during the agreed upon dates she may lose custody. As for the child support, he should not care how much he is paying as long as it is going to his children.
