4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need an attorney at all, you have to work closely together as a way to win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're planning to need your help. Here are four important approaches to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - particularly information other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information related to 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 Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss last minute details or even be extra prepared for the case 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 type of crime, it's important so as to prove to the court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

What Is Divorce Court Like?
What Should I Expect? I Have One Baby And I'M Pregnant And He'S Swore Up And Down He Would Do What Ever It Takes(Legally) To Get The Kids And I Know Once He Gets Them He Would Do Whatever It Takes (Legally Or Not) To Make Sure I Never See Them Again. I Want The Kids To See Him As Much As Possible Without Losing Them Myself. I Jus Wanna Know If It'S Possible If I Jus Ask For The Kids And Nothing Else, I Don'T Even Want Child Support. There Is Nothing Anyone Can Say To Make Me Look Like A Bad Mother Except Sometimes When My Baby Throws Temper Tantrums And Put Her In Her Crib And Close The Door Til She Starts Playing Or Falls Asleep. I'M 19 And Very Independant And Very Lost And Confused, And Know Absolutely Nothing About The Processes I Have To Go Through. Any One With The Facts Of The Things That Will Happen?
Divorce court sucks! It is embarrassing and humiliating. There are a lot of people there who are listening to your private business, and it is so degrading. GET A LAWYER. Do whatever it takes to pay for a good one. Men who are in this position make threats and tell you that things are going to get really nasty and dirty. They can be very intimidating. This is a bluff to make you give in. The louder they bark and the more they threaten you the more scared they are. This is a power issue. Stay strong and definitely get child support. I know how you feel right now. You just want your kids, but don't let him off so easy. Get that support and stand up for yourself. Repeat: Get a good lawyer.
Information To Becoming A Lawyer. Please Help Me!?
I'M A 15 Year Old Wanting To Become A Lawyer, And I Was Wondering What Classes Were Needed To Become Lawyer And Classes That Would Help Me Become A Successful Lawyer. I Also Wanted To Know Where Is The Best Place For A Lawyer To Live In? (Wanting To Become A Immigration Lawyer Or Criminal Defense)
To become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three more years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take classes/seminars etc. to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!)
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

I Am Looking To Find A La Firm In The Uk. Martins Blaney Law Firm?
I do not believe that any such firm exists. A Lexis search yields no results. Furthermore, most law firms, in both Britain and the US, do not include "law firm" as part of their title. It's generally a string of parter's names, possibly followed by a corporate identifier like PC or LLC.
Drinking And Driving ?
I Drove Today And I Felt Sobor But I Feel Soooo Guilty And I Think That God Is Going To Punish Me! I Just Need Help Not Think That..
God is not the one you need to worry about he will let you make your own choices, but you also must live with the consequences of your actions.
After I finally went to court after 6-months of court ordered rehab. My D.U.I. ended up costing my over $50,000.00 by the time I added up my lost time at work, lawyers fees, court cost and fines, D.U.I. school and classes and of course the ignition interlock device I had for 8-months.
Don't drink and drive. It's not worth it believe me.
Questions About Lawyers And Doctors?
I Am Interested In Both Professions - A Lawyer In Political Sciences And History, And A Doctor In Anatomy And Saving Peoples Lives. I Have A Few Questions To Maybe Help Me Narrow Down The Two Of Many Choices.
1. Which One Has A Potential For Making The Most Money? Yes, I Know That Doctor Salaries Depend On Number Of Procedures, And It Is Practically The Same Thing With Lawyers, But With Appointments And Court Cases.
2. Relating To Question 1, How Will These Specialties Narrow It Down?
- Corporate Lawyer
- Criminal Lawyer
- Orthopaedic Surgeon
- Sports Medicine Doctor
3. How Are The Working Hours For Both Professions In Relation To Their Salaries? I Know That For Many Lawyers, Their Salaries Grow Yearly. How Often Do Salaries Increase For Doctors?
Don't know about doctors, but as a lawyer can tell you the following:
DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE!!! Many attorneys are being laid off; having their income reduced; firms disbanded; and non payment of bills by clients who have no money. Even the goverment has reduced their hiring of attorneys.
Now as for which attorney specialty pays best- it is not even on your list- it is an Intellectual property/patent attorney. This very specialized field requires an engineering degree. So if money is your major concern- then get engineering then law degree. Plus as this is a RARE combination, and there will be no shortage of inventions or intellectual property disputes in the future this position should remain in the upper strastophere of salary. Corporate law will earn more than criminal law, although criminal law is more exciting as you are in court 24/7, but rarely in court in corporate law which deals primarly in writing documents. Estate planing/Wills is also a good income producing stream for lawyers as every one is going to die and wants to distribute thier assets.
If just looking to make lots of money, would suggest go into accounting and enter fianance carrer or into insurance and work way into management. Both finance and insurance are fields that will be around a long time, so stable income and increasing salary with benefits would be available.
Do I Need To Find A Lawyer?
Recently My Apartment Flooded Due To My Upstairs Neighbor'S Dog Chewing Through Pipes In The Toilet. So My Bathroom Ceiling Caved In, Water Got Everywhere, My Carpet Got Wet, The Apartment Smelled Dirty And Moldy, And It Basically Was A Big Mess. I Felt Like My House Was Not Liveable So I Went To My Mom'S House For A Week. When I Returned My Apartment Was Not Much Better. After A Couple Of Phone Calls From My Mother And Sister To The Landlord I Was Finally Able To Move Into Another Apartment. The Problem Now Is That I Would Like My Landlord To Pay For The Things That Got Damaged Or Wet From The Water Due To Sanitary Conditions. The Total Is About $115. She Stated That She Is Not Responsible For The Costs, Also The Girl Who Lived Above Me Is Mia, So How Can I Get These Costs Covered? Also, Because I Was Out Of Town For A Week And My Landlord Refused To Move Me Into A Hotel, I Feel Like I Should Not Have To Pay For The Week I Was Without An Apartment. Do I Have Reasonable Expectations? The Landlord Is Also Very Rude, Manipulative, And Tries To Take Advantage Of All The College Aged Tenants Which Live In The Building.
that's what renters insurance is for, check your state regulations, i live in pennsylvania and renters are REQUIRED to have renters insurance, if a pennsylvania resident doesn't have renters insurance within 30 days of lease signing, the eviction process begins.
i bring this up because it is also the law that the landlord inform the resident that they must purchase renters insurance, if this is the case in your state, your landlord broke the law, and all the tenants have a right to file a class action lawsuit against him
on a side note, again it varies by state, landlords are also required to pay for alternative housing while your apartment is brought back up to code/fixed. again, this is usually something renters insurance covers though.
