4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need an attorney at all, you must work closely with them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Listed here 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 going to reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information the other side could discover 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 because of the data they need to assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, each time. In fact, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any sort of crime, it's important so that you can convince the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along 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 Need Some Advice About Law School?
I Have A 3.30 From A State University. Major In Cellular And Molecular Biology, And Two Minors One In Chemistry And One In Biomedical Physics. I Am A Smart Guy, But I Have A Hard Time With Tests, Always Have. That's Why My Gpa Is So Low And That's Why I Just Scored A 146 On My Lsat. I Don't Think Retaking It Will Help But, I Think I Will Have Too. I Did Undergraduate Research In A Lab Here At My University, Studying Hepatitis C, I Also Worked For That Same Lab As A Laboratory Manager. I Did A Lot Of Ec's As Well, Biological Honors Society, Mentoring Program (I Can Teach It, I Just Can't Take The Tests, When I Take Tests, I Second Guess Myself, And My Mind Finds Ways To Qualify Every Possible Solution As Correct). I Was Able To Keep My Gpa Above 3.00 Because Of The Short Answer Type Questions, That I Can Answer Well, It's Just Multiple Choice That Screws Me. And Too Be Honest, I Don't See My Problem As A Real World Problem, I Just Over Think Every Question, Leaving Me Picking The Wrong One. Any Who, I Could Use Some Advice. Should I Just Retake The Lsat, Even Though I Likely Wont Do Any Better. Should I Just Go To A Sub Par Law School, Maybe Try To Transfer Up? I Can Use The Things I Learn, But I Just Have A Hard Time With Multiple Choice Tests.
I would strongly advise against going to a sub-par law school, because very few good schools would let you transfer up. At my law school, it was known that they would take the top three students from one other law school in town (which was far from sub-par) at the end of the first year to replace some of those who dropped out from our program, but I never saw a student from a non-ABA accredited law school be able to move up.
I have to wonder why you are going to Law School at all. You haven't said a thing about an interest in the law in your lengthy posting. Keep in mind that your whole legal career depends not only on your being able to get past the LSAT, but on being able to pass the Bar exam. If you have that much trouble with tests, you might want to rethink your goals.

1. Ideally you would have taken photos of the damage to both cars at the time of the incident. So as in the case of a dispute some months later you have some evidence to support your case.
2. This is the website for legal aid in WA - http://www.justice.wa.gov.au/L/legal_aid... The cost for initial legal advice (usually about half an hour) is $20 or $5 concession.
3. The best thing you can do is get some cheap legal aid as I informed you in point (2). Good luck
Successful, Insane Lawsuits?
How Do You Win A Ridiculous Lawsuit Such As A Woman Suing Mcdonald'S For Millions Of Dollars For Spilling Hot Coffee On Herself? Have Any Of You Had Any Similar Experiences?
First - never believe everything you read.
For example, your opinion might change if you learned that:
1. McDonalds had previously received numerous complaints from CHILDRENS hospitals regarding scalding of children.
2. McDonalds had already determined that the coffee was dangerously hot, and if drunk at the temperature set in their stores, it would not only be undrinkable, but could cause serious permanent injuries to people who drink it (this was not merely hot coffee).
3. McDonalds had decided that the time lost in re-setting thermostats was not worth the money. HENCE, the big damages.
4. McDonalds coffee is now substantially less hot than it was before the woman (who suffered third-degree burns, incidentally, requiring skin grafts and reconstructive surgery). Its still plenty hot -- and can give you first degree burns, but not third degree, debilitating burns.
Ok, so what about the really ridiculous lawsuits?
How about someone who falls off ladder, and then blames ladder company? Happens hundreds of times a year. But the fact is, that ladder companies win 85% of those lawsuits. Although rarely successful, the ladder companies spend tens of thousands of dollars on each case to defend the frivolous lawsuit.
There are other ridiculous lawsuits.
But who is to blame?
The problem is, lawyers know that, if they sue, insurance companies will often settle for the costs of defense, rather than spend that money on a defense and still POSSIBLY lose. For example, if it will cost $50-$100k to defend a lawsuit (these numbers are real), then it makes sense to settle for $50,000-$100,000 (you would have spent it anyway on lawyers and experts) and KNOW you will not lose more.
Is it the fault of the plaintiffs? No. In a capitalist society, the profit motive is pure. You cannot blame the plaintiff for following the profit motive.
Is it the fault of the trial lawyer? No. They know that if they settle the case for $75,000 (middle number), they get $25,000. They know that 97% of all lawsuits filed result in a settlement.
Is it the fault of the defense attorney? No, he is trying to defend the company.
Is it the fault of the law? No, because someone who is really hurt due to someone else's negligence should be made whole (you broke it, you fix it).
Whose fault is it? You bet - its the insurer. An insurance policy has two parts -- defense (they must provide a lawyer( and indemnity (payment for damages). Because they continue to settle stupid lawsuits, it provides the incentive for plaintiffs to continue to seek lawyers, and lawyers to file suit. If they would put more emphasis of defense, and trust that juries will do the right thing (which almost always happens), then lawyers will be far more reluctant to spend lots of their own money with a good chance of getting nothing back (plaintiff lawyers do not get paid unless the "win", whihc is almost guaranteed with insurers settling all the time).
Should I Hire A Traffic Lawyer?
I Live In Miami Dade And I Recieved Over A Span Of 2 Months 3 Driving With Suspended Licese Citations...Am I Better Off Just Paying A Lawyer To Handle The Court Cases For Me , Or Should I Just Go Into Court Representing Myself?
if you are fool enough to miss the point after the first ticket you are probably fool enough to fight it still. why waste your money on a lawyer or waste your time fighting it?
