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.

Messed Up Parenting Plan??
My Parents Just Recently Divorced, And I'M Fine With It. The Only Problem Is That The Parenting Plan That They Settled With The Court Mandates That My Brother And I Are To Spend Every Other Week Night With A Different Parent And Then Alternate The Weekend. For Example, Monday And Wednesday At Dad'S And Tuesday And Thursday At Mom'S And Then Friday Alternates With The Weekend.
I Have Never Heard Of Anyone Following This Back And Forth Everyday Schedule And Was Just Curious If It Was Common Or One Of My Parents &Quot;Brilliant&Quot; Ideas. I Know That I Am Eighteen And Will Not Be Living At Home For Much Longer, But I Have A 12 Year Old Brother And I Can'T Imagine Going Back And Forth Everyday For Six Or So Years.
Any Thoughts Are Appreciated, I Am Looking For Either Parents Or Children'S Perspectives. Thanks.
Try talking with your parents first.. Try putting it like you would like to spend more time in a row with each parent. Maybe a week on and a week off for example. And then tell them how it is affecting BOTH of you. Let your brother do most of the talking since you will be leaving soon. Then if they don't care to listen...Go to the DCS and tell them that it is affecting you and your brother emotionally and physically, etc all areas.. Also is it written in the divorce records like that? You would think that if it was and it was read by a judge or lawyer they would think about the affect it would have on the children. You are supposed to be taken care of emotionally tooooo. Your parents may be happy with this schedule but it will affect both of you in all areas of your life forever. Your parents have alot going on in all those areas to so they might just need to know how you guys feel!~
I Gave A Lawyer A 3000. Retainer To File An Alimony Modification Due To Loosing My Job. 6 Wks No Action ?
Every Time We Call We Get Charged But No Answers, No Action, No Call Backs, 2 Weeks Ago Lawyer Finally Answered Ans Said &Quot; Ive Got You Messages But Been Busy With Appeal Cant Talk Now But Will Call By 5, Called At 4:30 Saying Still Tied Up To 11 Am Tom Morrow And I'Ll Pull File And Call Then, Its Been A Week, No Returned Call. Every Time I Call We Get Charged For The Call. It Wont Take Long For Her To Use Up The Retainer On Us Just Asking For Info On Petition That Is Not Even Filed Yet??
What a crook. I would terminate the relationship and either bring or have your file sent to another attorney. This one just isn't interested in your case, and without a job you can't afford to be using up money on an incompetent lawyer when there are so many talented and affordable ones out there. This is a really simple filing and there is no excuse for it not to be done by now. It's been six weeks, for heaven's sake. A snail would have carried it to the courthouse by now.
I appreciate that they're busy, but this is unacceptable. They've taken on more work than they can actually do. Write them or pay them a visit at the office, state that this isn't working out and you'll be seeking representation elsewhere, and ask for the file and whatever is left of your retainer.
Honestly, your lawyer should have done this on their own initiative by now and referred you to someone else. The bottom line is that you're paying for a service that you aren't getting. Not cool.
What Are All Teh Different Kind Of Lawyers?
U Know Stuff Like Criminal Defence,Marriage... That All I Got
The list is almost infinite:
Criminal defense, district attorneys or prosecutors;
Matrimonial, Family Law (custody, adoption); Trusts and Estates (Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning); Elder Care; Social Security; Securities; Tort Lawyers (including negligence, malpractice, and intentional torts such as trespass, nuisance); Corporate; Real Estate; Zoning and Planning; Municipal; Commercial Transactions; Tax; Banking; Public Finance; Appellate; Entertainment; Sports; Constitutional; Intellectual Property (Trademark, Copyright, Patent) . . .
The thing is, each has to take the bar exam on which you may be tested on any and all of the above areas. The above are just specialties that some lawyers choose to limit their practices to. Others, especially in small towns, might handle any type of contract or case that comes in the door, so we refer to those types as general practitioners.
Most judges also have to first be lawyers, but not everywhere. For example, in NY State, you don't have to be a lawyer to be a town judge or justice of the peace.
The only difference being that a lawyer is limited to the states in which he or she is admitted to the bar, and certain individual federal courts, but patent lawyers have to take a separate patent bar exam in order to practice before the Patent and Trademark Office.

I Need Legal Advice: Marriage/Divorce?
My Friend Is Married And He And His Wife Are On The Rocks, But That'S Irregardless To This Question. Well, My Friend (The Married Man) Had About $87,900 Saved In An Account That He Had In California.This Money Is Money That He Earned Prior To The Marriage Due To The Line Of Work He Was In,As Well As Some Money He Received From Serving As A Navy Seal.So, He Had This Money, It Was His Money, In His Account, Private, Etc. His Wife Knew About It, Though, Of Course. Well, She Decided To Take That Money And Transfer It Into An Account For Their Newborn Son (For His Life, Under His Ssn) Without Asking The Husband, And She Will Not Give Him Access To The Money Now, Because She Opened The Account On Behalf Of Their Baby Using Her Name.So, Basically, She Stole It- Even Though They Are Married, Etc.Is There Any Legal Action That Can Be Taken On The Husband'S Part To Get That Money Back, Since She Did Not Consult Him First, And/Or Does He Have Any Legal Rights To Gain Access To The Account?
Agree with other Answer - you're not getting the whole story!
If it were to be something like you said, either
1. her name was on the account in order for it to move. It becomes community property and is half hers
2. She forged his name ... that is a crime and he would have recourse. The downside is that that money is "in play" in divorce proceedings ... it will likely go to attorney's fees and /or used to "balance" community property ... or possibly used to support wife and child if she decides she wants to stay in community home.
Oh - those are CA laws - even my scenarios probably aren't much help. They sure are fun, though, aren't they?
