4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a legal professional for any reason, you have to work closely together so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - particularly information the other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or even be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any type of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Help Real Estate Law Question....?
Seller And Purchaser Enter Into A Contract For The Sale And Purchase Of Real Property For A Price Of $175,000. The Property Has A Value Of $190,000. The Purchaser Fails To Perform.What Is The Amount Of Money Damages To Be Awarded To The Seller? What Is The Amount Of Money Damages Owned To The Purchaser If The Seller Fails To Perform?
Are you asking what the law says or what would actually happen. For the law it would be costs of either party and the deposit in the buyer failed to perform. In theory they could get the value of the contract (not the appraised value) or possible the appraised value minus actual value for the buyer, but in actual practice it would never happen. This really may not help if this is a textbook question (since I'm kinda vague here) but its an annoying question more interested in what the law kinda says than in reality.
For what would actually happen is they'd probably bicker back and forth for awhile calling each other nasty names and questioning whether one or the other was sired by dogs, or worse. One or both would get lawyers who would send legalistic but vague letters back and forth. They'd both threaten the closing agent with terrible penalties if they released the deposit to either one of them but eventually they'd probably settle for splitting the deposit in some way to mollify them both (anywhere from buyer gets it all to seller gets it all but rarely would I expect more than the deposit to be agreed upon).
How Do I Go About Temporary Guardianship?
I Am A Full Time College Student Who Just Graduated With My First Degree And I Am A Single Parent With Two Boys. My Oldest Is 3 Going On 4 And My Youngest Is 1. I Do Work Part Time, But Is Not Enough To Take Care Of My Little Family. My Mother Wants Full Custody Of My Boys But I Am Just Afraid That If I Give Her Full Custody Of My Boys She Will Cut Off All Relationship With Me And My Boys. I Do Feel That I Can Take Care And Raise My Boys To Be Good Men In The Future, But As Of Right Now I Don'T Have What It Takes To Raise Them. My Degree Is Only A Undergrad Degree And As Of Right Now I Am Looking To Transfer To A University. Once I Am Finished With School And Get A Really Good Job I Will Then Be Ready And Excited To Raise My Boys How I Want To Raise Them. So Until Then I Will Not Give My Mother Full Custody But I Am Looking To Give Her Temporary Guardianship.
Guardianship is a relatively easy procedure. You can get the forms at probate court and fill them out. Your mother takes them in to probate court and files them. They have a hearing and if the guardianship is not contested then they will grant it. It doesn't affect your parental rights but it gives you mother 'custody' in that she can make all medical/educational decisions for the children.
That said, think long and hard about this. Temporary guardianship is for 6 months. At the end of that term, your mother can file for permanent guardianship. That's very similar to custody. Even though you would still have parental rights, she would have 'care and custody' of the children. And she would legally be able to cut off contact with you. That you're fearful she might do that should be a clue that she probably would, as soon as she is legally able to. Also, the only way to dissolve permanent guardianship would be for you to go back into probate court and file to have a hearing. You couldn't just show up and claim your children. The burden of proof would be on you to show that the children would be better off with you. And if they had been with your mother for a couple of years the court would look at the emotional impact of removing them from your mother's care and might deny your request to dissolve the guardianship. Think carefully before you do this. It might be better to work full time to support yourself and your children and go to school part time rather than give your mother guardianship.
Am I Over-Reacting? Domestic Violence?
In April, I Broke Up With My Ex Bf, Long Long Story Short ,He Pulled My Hair (Really Hard) And Threw Me On The Cement With Extreme Force, I Know This May Not Be Him Beating Me, But Its Still Not Right...Right? So My Parents Called The Cops, Since They Havent Heard From Me, And I Pressed Charges For Domestic Violence......I Have A Restraining Order On Him, And Just Got The Letter In The Mail Today For The Court Date For The Domestic Violence Trial....I Was Wondering If Anyone Could Give Me Support, And Tell Me If Im Over Re-Acting? Is Anyone Has Been Through This? Do I Need To Get A Lawyer For This Court Date? Im Soo Lost In What To Do....Also He Was Very Badly Messed Up With Drugs While He Did This To Me, And It Was Always A Violent Relationship
First he's your ex-boyfriend so F- him.
I assume that you didn't want him to pull your hair or throw you on the ground so there is the assault. You have a prior dating relationship so that makes it domestic violence.
Are you over reacting. No. Not in the least. You shouldn't have to wonder if you are over reacting because the prosecutor and the cop that took your report both believe you otherwise he wouldn't be where he is.
Irregardless of how much of a doper he is was or whatever may be the BS excuse for his violence, he is a person that doesn't play well with others. Do yourself and every other woman prince charming has contact with a favor, go to court, testify, tell the truth and don't minimize his actions.
On average it takes a woman 9 attempts to leave a violent relationship. 9 attempts. Some women never make it to 9 before they are killed.
There are so many reasons why you should testify and I can't convince you to. I could tell you that a domestic violence conviction now would prevent him from ever owning a firearm in the future making it a federal offense to even possess ammunition. I could tell you that a conviction in your case will have an impact on any future cases of domestic violence cases he has.
Don't let your emotions play into this. You need to do what's best for you and that is to testify in court against him, maintain whatever orders of protection you have against him and always report violations. The cops and courts have done what they can, you need to empower yourself and do what you can do for you.

When Will First-Year Salaries Go Up Again For First-Year Associates At Major Law Firms?
They Went Up From $120,000 Base + Bonus (Usually $5-$10K Or So) In The Late 1990'S To $140K Base + Bonus In The Early 2000'S, And Then To $160K Base + Bonus Around 2004.
But They Have Been Stuck At That Level Since 2004. A First-Year Associate At A Firm Like Kirkland Or Debevoise Still Starts At $160K + Bonus. Where Is The Raise? Why Aren'T First-Years Starting At $180K + Bonus Or $200K + Bonus?
Remember, We'Re Talking About Some Of The Top Lawschool Grads In The Nation. These Kids Deserve Better Than A 2004-Era Salary. Why Should A New 2010 Grad From Hls Or Stanford Have To Put Up With This?
You are quoting NYC salaries. The typical first year salary for my market (Delaware) for a top tier law firm (such as Skadden or Morgan Lewis) is $140K. It costs more to live in NYC and the salaries are commensurate.
Though I am a lawyer and not at all unbiased, I think first year salaries are absurdly high already given current market conditions and will not raise again until at least 2012. While investment banking hiring has already come back from its trough, transactional law has not. There are no good M&A deals occuring right now to pad the big firm coffers, for example. All the deals are occuring under government scrutiny and thus cannot be fee'd to death. And there is an open revolt among Fortune 100 clients against paying a first year the $400/hour rate to support his $140K salary. Most of my Fortune 100 clients are demanding fixed fee agreements and similar alternative compensation models that cut hard on the junior attorney and staff rates. If you can't get the money from a client, then you can't pay it to an associate.
There is no business reason to start a first year at $200K. Any new grad in this market would be stupid to turn down $140K, the first year cannot recoup the $200K through billables, and there are a plethora of decent lateral candidates about who will accept a position in the $150K range without having to be taught stupid things like how to use PACER. Many firms are taking an honest look and wondering whether they really need a UPENN first year at $160K to run a document review when a Villanova grad in the same city that has two years experience will take $140K and be glad to have gotten it. And a lot of the baby lawyer work is being farmed out to India, meaning you don't need a high body count to get the work done.
Like the European pension system, the golden age of endlessly increasing associate salaries has passed.
If You Fire Your Current Lawyer Before You Get A New One, It Will Be Nearly Impossible To Get Another Lawyer?
This Is What Someone Said In Their Answer To Someone Else, And I Trust The Source So Would Like Clarification. Why (When Applying For Ss Disability) Would It Be Hard To Get Another Lawyer If You Fire Your Current One?
Lawyers expect to be paid for the work they do. They take cases on contingency at the risk they won't be paid if they lose, not because a client decides to switch lawyers. If you switch lawyer once what is to stop you from switching lawyers again. Lawyer 1 works for 2 years and is not paid for his work - why would lawyer 2 also risk not being paid because you decide to hire lawyer 3?
Lawyer 2 if hired before you fire lawyer 1 knows you have a legitimate reason to fire lawyer 1.
I do have a lawyer that helps me with disability related legal issues. I once asked him about the pros and cons of hiring on contingency. He told me that working on contingency takes away the incentive to get a case settled quickly. If the lawyer gets a percentage of your back pay, it suits them better to delay winning your case so the amount of the back pay (and their pay) increases. It is better to negotiate a set amount that they receive win or lose and no matter how long or little it takes.
