4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you want an attorney for any reason, you need to work closely along with them so that you can win your case. Irrespective of how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - especially information the other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each time. In fact, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or even 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 charged with any sort of crime, it's important so as to convince the legal court that you both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Racist Mom. Need Help! Legal Advice ?
I'M Seventeen Years Old. I'M Currently Living Under My Mother'S House, In The State Of Georgia, Though I Am A Legal Resident Of Florida. It'S Confusing. But I Dropped Out Of High School. Everything Was Okay Until She Found Out I Had A Boyfriend Of A Different Race. She Is Extremely Racist. & Even That Is An Understatement. She Has Told Me Before That She Would Rather Me Date A White Man Who Beat Me, Than Seeing Me With A Decent African American Male. My Boyfriend Is Three Years Older Than Me, He Is 20. But I'Ve Looked Up The Laws For Both Florida & Georgia, In Which Case, In Both States We Are Legally Allowed To Be Together. If I'M Wrong, Please Correct Me ? I Really Need To Know My Rights As A Seventeen Year Old In Both Of These States. My Mother Has Said I Could Leave But If I Do Leave There Will Be Major Consequences. I Talked To A Detective Today & He Said That Since I'M A Drop Out, I Can Leave Her House Without Her Being Able To Do Anything. But I Talked To A Lawyer, & They Said Different. I Just Need To Know If I Can Leave Without Her Being Able To Do Anything. & If I Am Allowed To Leave, What Am I Entitled To ? Clothes Wise ? Cause She Said If I Leave, I Leave With What Is On My Back. Is That Legal. ? Please Help ? :/ :(
Hi, The legal age of majority in Georgia is 18. The legal age of consent (sexual) is 16, You might find this site interesting!! http://www.ageofconsent.com/georgia.htm
I just dealt with a girl in Georgia that was in the exact sesituation as you are. She was 17 but, would be 18 in about 5-7 months (The closer you are to 18 the better). She left home and her parents called the police. They talked to the girl and since she was in a safe home, with responsible adults they did not return her. They told her parents that she was safe and refused to return home. They said that if the parents wanted, they could petition the court for her return then, she would have to go back. However, they did not do that. As far as your boyfriend...for goodness sake, what an awful thing to tell your daughter. I have mixed grand kids and I LOVE them to death. Color does NOT matter. It's what kind of person they are and, if they are good to you, love you, treat you with respect and work and do the things that would promote a great relationship. It's a shame, in this day and time, that someone has such racist views. Yes, you can be together, the age difference is 3 years in almost all states. If she files a petition with the court for your return, you have a voice in the court also. If there was any abuse, etc. you can present that and the court will take it into conisderation. If you truly plan on leaving, I would slowly remove things you want to keep from the home and leave them with someone. If she is paying for your phone, it's hers, The law is the law but, it just depends on what the authorities decide to do in any given situation. What they decide, is what happens...they can go by their instincts when the law is not clear. JOSA

Where To Donate To Zimmerman Legal Defence Fund.?
I Would Like To Donate To The George Zimmerman Defense Fund Because I Think He Is Innocent Of Murder.
"I would like to donate to the George Zimmerman defense fund because I think he is innocent of murder."
Based on what? You haven seen all of the evidence. If you want to make a donation because you want to make sure that he has a fair trial I can understand that. But you are not in a position to proclaim his innocence any more than someone else is in a position to proclaim his guilt.
What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
I Am Trying To Decide If It'S Worth It To Retain A Lawyer.
The Injury Resulted From A Low Impact Rear-End Crash With A Dump Truck (Damage To Car Does Not Look Serious). I Saw A Dr. The Same Day And Was Diagnosed With A Neck Strain. I'M Looking At 3 Weeks Of Physical Therapy. At This Point I'M Not Sure How I Will Recover, But Let'S Assume That I'M Only Looking At 1 Week Of Lost Wages, Medical Expenses Are Covered By Worker'S Comp Because I Was On Company Time, And After The Physical Therapy I Have A Full Recovery.
Is The Case Worth Enough To Retain A Lawyer?
The Accident Happened In Metro Atlanta, Ga. Anyone Have Any Idea What The Insurance Company May Offer, If Anything, For Pain And Suffering?
Many states have a rule that you can pursue both Workers Comp. and a Civil Action. So, I would check with a lawyer for an opinion about the interplay between Workers Comp and a personal injury claim at the courthouse. Remember there are usually time limits on workers comp. Still, I would check out the issues. On the medical issue, you should consider an x-ray or MRI to rule out greater damage than a simple cervical strain. On the other hand, I would not make this accident the center of my life. PI lawyers charge no fee for an initial interview. There are thousands of lawyers who want to represent people with your case.
Can A Divorce Decree Be Changed Regarding Retirement Property?
We Divorced Ten Years Ago And Were Not Verbally Sure About The Division Of My Pera Retirement, So We Simply Wrote Down N/A. Does This Mean That I Get All Of My Retirement?
My job, before retirement, was RETIREMENT... and divorces with QDRO and EDRO's issued to split pensions.
First, ten years ago, if the pension was split, the court would order a Domestic Relations Order (Qualified DRO for private sector) and Eligible DRO for public sector. DRO's were new to pensions
My guess is that your ex agreed to give up the pension during divorce negotiations between the two parties and their attorneys. Maybe got a bigger cut of a savings account, or a car, or whatever... in exchange for leaving the pension as is. Whether there was a split or not, regardless of the N/A, there should be text in the divorce that speaks to Retirement Plans. It should say that you retain your pension, or that it is split and the specifics will be in the DRO issued soon.
THEN the attorney hires actuaries, subpeona's both plans and determines the rules for the split (if one party dies before you both actually hit retirement, etc etc).. and the actuary has to determine if the DRO costs the plan more than the plan would have normally paid out - if there were no DRO. Lots to consider...
My two cents, check the retirement section of the divorce itself... I'm really not sure what document you are looking at that you wrote N/A. The divorces we reviewed were legal documents of at least five pages, that the Judge could sign...
Finally, just because you never did a Domestic Relations Order doesn't mean you are OK. We've had divorces where the EX's attorney advised that a DRO would be issued, we never received it, and at retirement -- had to hold up the retirement paperwork until a DRO is received. Imagine that.. ten years later having to go back to court to complete a divorce order. Not a good thing...
