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.

Any Way To Fight These Criminal Charges?
My Fiancee Is Being Charged With 1 Account Of Theft And 2 Accounts Criminal/Graveyard Mischief. Something That Happened Over 3 Years Ago Of Which He Did Not Do. He Was Barely 18 When This Occurred And Got Drunk With Two Buddies And They Went To A Graveyard, He Doesn'T Remember That Night And Didn'T Even Know What Was Going On But One Of The Guys Decided To Rob The Security Building In The Cemetery. I Guess My Fiancee Might Have Cut Himself While With Them And The Police Got His Dna From It. He May Be Guilty For Trespassing But He Did Not Steal Anything Or Knowingly Steal Anything, He Didn'T Even Know Anything Was Stolen Until The Next Day When He Saw The Computers In His Buddy'S Car. He'S Already Served Time For Conspiracy To Commit Theft Two Years For Something He Didn'T Do But He Was Present When Three Under-Aged Kids Decided To Steal And He Knew About It And Stupidly Admitted To It. He'S Served A Year Of House Arrest And Has Three Years Probation - Two Already Served But He'S 21 Now, He'S Grown Up And Left The Crowd He Was In. He Had A Terrible Upbringing And Was Slow To Realize He Didn'T Need To Act Out To Get Attention. He'S Got Two Jobs, A Car, A House And We'Re Getting Married. He'S Paid All His Fees On Time And Has Been No Trouble For The Cops. I'M Curious If There Is Anything I Could Do To Help Him Win This. Is There Any Possible Laws That Would Prevent Them From Charging Him With Something From Over 3 Years Ago? Is There A Law Preventing Them From Using His Dna If It'S Not In A Murder Case? Any Kind Of Law That Could Help Him? He'S Done Stupid Things In His Past, He'S Paid For His Mistakes, He'S A Different Person Now - He'S Cleaned Up, He'S A Good Man But The Past Keeps Biting Him In The ***. Can They 100% Prove He'S Guilty By Having The Dna? There'S No Way To Prove One Of His Friend'S Carried His Dna. He Was Also Intoxicated And Not In The Right State Of Mind, Is That Helpful To Him? If He Turns In The Other Two Guys Who Were Involved Could That Help?
"Is there any possible laws that would prevent them from charging him with something from over 3 years ago?" Possibly. His attorney will want to look into the statute of limitations on these charges and how they apply to this case.
"Is there a law preventing them from using his DNA if it's not in a murder case?" Of course not. The admissibility of evidence has nothing to do with the charge being brought.
"Any kind of law that could help him?" Maybe the statute of limitations on the charges, but it's not likely, considering the prosecutor is familiar with it.
"Can they 100% prove he's guilty by having the DNA?" Possibly. If the DNA sample is his blood on a broken window, for example, that would pretty much seal it.
"He was also intoxicated and not in the right state of mind, is that helpful to him?" Not at all. It's his own fault he was intoxicated. A total acceptance of personal responsibility over ones chosen behavior, without excuses, would be helpful.
"If he turns in the other two guys who were involved could that help?" Maybe. And he could discuss this with his attorney.
However, if I were you, I'd discourage that. It makes both of you a target for retaliation. Plus, would you rather have a man who accepts responsibility for his mistakes, or a child who makes excuses and blames others?
Can Anyone Shed Some Light On Proper Personal Injury Claim Settlement Amounts?
My Mother And Sister Were In An Accident A Few Months Back. A Lady Rear Ended Them While They Were Stopped At A Red Light. She Took Full Responsibility For The Accident.
Damage To The Car Was Not Very Visible To The Naked Eye. Rear Bumper Damage But When We Took It To The Body Shop Vehicle Frame Damage Was Discovered.
Initially The Other Insurance Company Offered $500 For The Car Damage But Bumped It Up To $3000 When They Saw Frame Damage. That Has All Been Paid And What Remains Is The Personal Injury Claim.
One Day'S Worth Of Hospital Bills For My Mom And Sister Ran Nearly $8,000. The Other Insurance Company Classified The Situation As Standard Whip Lash. He Offered To Pay The Outstanding Bills And Give $500 Each For Pain And Suffering And $300 Each For Future Treatment.
I Used Www.Eorthopod.Com To Learn About Whiplash Injuries And Long Term Pain As A Result. Both My Mother And Sister Still Feel Some Pain And I'M Afraid Of Long Term Damage.
A lawyer can not get you 50,000. So, don't even go there. Your claim is worth what it's worth - regardless if you have an attorny or not.
Each claim is evaluated on it's own merits. The injury is what it is. So, we can't tell you what to settle for. I have not seen the photos/estimate of your car, the car that hit you, your mother/sisters medical bills/reports.
If your mom and sister incurred 8000 in meds in 1 hospt trip - that's likely a good 80% diagnostic. If the x-rays, Cat Scan/Mri that were done shows nothing wrong - then those things don't add value to the claim other than the cost of the proceedure.
A whip lash injury is a soft tissue injury. It will resolve itself with time. It is not a permanent injury and it will not cause life long problems. It will usually resolve itself. Although, anti-inflamatories and muscle relaxers can help.
As long as you don't get greedy and think that this is going to solve all your financial problems you should be fine.

Tennessee Service Dog Laws?
I Have Aspergers Syndrome And I Am Training My Own Service Dog To Help When I Have A Breakdown When I Get Over Stimulated In Social Situation. Sometimes I Get So Upset I Pass Out. I Have Been Looking Up Laws Regarding Service Dogs And The Only Laws I Can Find For Tennessee Regard Guide Dogs And Hearing Dogs. Are Psychiatric Service Dogs Allowed In Tennessee And What Are The Laws? I Know The Federal Law Allows It And That Is Why I Began Training And I Read That Federal Law Overrules The State Law But I Am Still Confused. Also Where Can I Go To Get A License For My Dog? I Know You Don'T Have To Have One But Having One Would Make Things A Lot Easier.
So far as I know, TN does not recognize PSDs, nor trainers. So until your dog is fully trained as a service dog (meeting the definition under the ADA) you'll have no rights beyond what a normal pet owner would have. That means you'll have to ask businesses for permission to visit their facilities to train. It also means no venues where food is prepared or served until training is complete.
The federal law does not overrule state law. That is a common misconception. Whichever law grants the greater rights to the person with a disability prevails. Sometimes that is the federal law, and sometimes that is the state law. Consider the protections of the ADA to be the minimum, or the least protection you can count on, but your state might give you more (except not in the case of TN).
Unfortunately, TN has a bad track record with the ADA. The state actually sued for the right to discriminate against its own disabled citizens. They lost in a Supreme Court ruling, but still it tells you something about their attitude about the disabled. As further evidence of TN's backwardness in the area of disability rights, take a look at this gem: http://www.tennessee.gov/attorneygeneral...
(Please note: he is incorrect, the ADA specifically says that "credentials" cannot be required as a condition of public access see: http://www.ada.gov/svcanimb.htm )
A license is just what cities and some counties issue to all dogs, be they pet or service dog. Some states offer special licenses for service dogs, but I don't think that is true of TN and wouldn't matter if it was since they don't recognize PSDs anyway. You can register or certify a dog for a fee, but this is pointless. Certification and registration do not make a dog a service dog. Those schemes are all scams meant to cheat the disabled (and people wanting to pass pets off as service animals). So just skip it. Instead, carry a copy of the "Business Brief" (link above) and the number for the Department of Justice's ADA information line (800 - 514 - 0301).
Here's a free law card you can print out and carry in your wallet. It helps to get it laminated so it lasts longer: http://www.deltasociety.org/Document.Doc... And here's a nice three-fold brochure from the same people that may prove helpful in educating the public: http://www.deltasociety.org/Document.Doc?id=239
What you do need, for your own sake, is to start collecting your own paper trail of documentation. Make sure your doctor mentions recommending your use of a service dog in your medical records. Make sure to discuss with him whether he considers you disabled and for him to make note of that determination in your medical records. Then keep a training log showing when, how long, and what you train your dog in each session.
Should you wind up in a position where you have to prove you are disabled and your dog is trained as a service dog, this is the documentation you really need. Those fake ones don't hold up in court or any place where they actually can require proof. So you might as well collect the real thing and have it ready if you ever need it. It's hard to collect later on down the road after an issue arises, so collect it now, as you go along.
Remember that the ADA does not apply to dogs in training, so your dog must already be trained as a service dog before the ADA gives you any rights to use the dog in public.
These are the notes I've collected on TN, though I'm about to update my notes (they're a bit old): http://servicedogcentral.org/content/node/42
There are others with aspergers and service dogs active on the SDC forum at http://servicedogcentral.org/forum if you are interested in interacting with others who face similar situations.
edited to add:
I thought you might be interested in that Supreme Court case where TN sued for the right to discriminate. Here it is if you'd like to read it for yourself: http://servicedogcentral.org/content/node/248
The answer above mine is just a copy/paste of the law card I gave you a link to. It's much more convenient in it's original form ( http://www.deltasociety.org/Document.Doc?id=346 ) because it's formatted to fit in your wallet. Wish she had given the link for the source of her information instead of just doing a copy/paste and letting it look like she'd written the answer herself.
How Can I Locate A Lawyer That Offers Help For Free?
I Have A Family Member Who Needs A Lawyer Because The One He Has Isn'T Working His Case To His Advantage At All.
Depends on the State or territory and the type of case.
In a criminal case the person can ask the Court to appoint an attorney -- for some states this is the Public Defender in others Legal Aid.
In a civil cases you can go to your state or local bar association as request information as to attorneys who will do work for a discount or Pro Bono (free).
Local (civil) legal aid offices are usually in the White and Yellow pages.
Doing it sooner rather than later is always better.
After Winning My Personal Injury Case In Court The Defendents Filed Bankruptcy. So My Attorney Says.?
He Has Never Sent Any Correspondence Letter Or Anything To Me Since I Won The Case. I'M Pretty Sure That He Put A Lien On Their Assests Before We Took Them To Court. Can An Attorney Find Other Ways To Collect Even After They File Bankruptcy?
personal injury awards are not dischargable in bankruptcy!
Criminal fines and debts -- All court fees and court-ordered judgments related to any criminal activity cannot be discharged -- neither are any judgments or debts incurred as a result of personal injury or death to others caused by your own negligence or criminal activity;
