4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a legal professional at all, you must work closely with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important ways 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 going to reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - especially information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all information associated with 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. Appear Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, each and every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important so as to prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

In Pennsylvania Does Anyone Know The Property Laws?
When We Moved Into Our House There Were Shrubs/Bushes Next To Our Foundation. We Weren'T Sure If They Belonged To Us Because The Next Door Neighbor Called Them His Bushes.Recently We Had Our Land Surveyed And Found Out That They Were On Our Property. Can We Claim These Bushes As Ours If They Are On Our Property? If So, Can We Also Remove Them If We No Longer Want Them There Or Do We Have To Ask Permission From The Neighbor To Remove Them Since He Claims The Bushes As His?
Law and neighborliness are often at odds.
While the law says that if it is attached to your land it is, basically, yours, simply ripping them up and tossing them is sure to put you at odds with the neighbors for a loooooong time.
Your better approach is to send a copy of the survey to the neighbor and inform them that you want to do some landscaping and YOUR bushes have to go. Ask him if he wants to keep them and perhaps even offer to split the cost of attempting to transplant them this winter when they have the best chance of surviving the move. Give him a tentative date when you plan to do the work and ask him to contact you before then
Once you do that, the proverbial ball is in his corner he either acts and accepts or rejects your offer, but in any case, the bushes are soon gone.

Best Community Service For Law School?
I'M A Student In Buffalo, Ny. I Would Like To Know Which Extra Curricular Things Look Best For Law School. I'M Already A Member Of A National Fraternity, But Really Don'T Have Much Else. I'Ve Been Reading That They Love Diversity And Different Things Like That. I Mean, I'M A Black Guy, But I Dont Think That Will Be Enough. Any Suggestions As Far As What Type Of Community Service Looks The Best Would Be Great. People Who Have Gone Through The Process Too, Would Be Helpful. Thanks
Being URM is the biggest admissions boost out there (other than GPA and LSAT, of course). Without knowing your stats or your goals, I can't say whether your URM-ness will be enough, but generally speaking, URM is the best soft factor you can have on your application, better than volunteer activities or work experience or really anything, save maybe for curing cancer. I'm not even exaggerating all that much.
Law schools do love diversity, and not just racial/ethnic diversity, but diversity of experience. They like to brag about how their students are from a variety of regions in the US and countries around the world. One school even bragged about having three unicyclists matriculating there. Some of the more valuable extracurricular activities are military service, work experience after college, academic awards and honors (dean's list, Fulbright, Rhodes Scholar, etc.), graduate school, Teach for America, being published, starting a non-profit, etc. It doesn't matter what type of community service you do, but if I would pick an overall theme and I would try to assume a leadership role. Law schools love leadership roles. An overall theme is important because it makes the law school think that you have an actual interest and passion for something and that you're not just padding your resume with random activities.
If one of your experiences taught you something that made you a better person or matured you in some way, it'd be good material for your personal statement. Also, as a URM, you should definitely submit a diversity statement. They're not required, but law schools like when URMs write them. It's not always enough to just check a box, I guess. A diversity statement should be about how being black has affected you, your outlook, your life experiences, and so on, and how that could contribute to the overall diversity of the school.
I should add this: GPA, LSAT, and URM are going to be about 98% of your application, but those soft factors begin to matter when you don't have any, and they can provide valuable experiences that will later be of benefit to you when writing your personal statement.
Where Can I Find A Good Constitutional Appeal Lawyer In Louisiana Need Help Asap For Brother?
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
Go to the Court that is associated with your type of matter. For example, if your matter is regarding traffic law, go hang out by Traffic Court (also DUI Court). Ask attorneys that you might see there for their business cards - ask the clerks/secretaries there for names of lawyers. (DON'T make a nuisance of yourself there!)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Do You Think Dogs Deserves Legal Rights?
A legal right is an abstract concept. Animals can not even think abstractly.
Example if a dog comes on your property(trespassing)and eats your cat food(theft) how many years do you lock it up. Or it kills your cat do you execute it ? After trial of course.
With rights come responsibilities. What morons advocating animal rights mean is they want the right to tell you what you can and can not do with your animals. They want power over your property. In the name of compassion for animals of course.
It is a power grab plain and simple.
Help! I Need Legal Advice Regarding Paternity And Divorce!?
I Gave Birth To A Baby On March 15, 2007. I Was Legally Married To My Soon To Be Ex, But He Is Not The Father Of The Baby. In The Hospital, I Was Told That In The State Of Michigan, The Husband Has To Be On The Birth Certificate, Even If He Isn'T The Biological Father. I Want To Have My Husband Removed From The Birth Certificate, And Have No Obligations In Regards To Child Support, And Then Proceed With The Divorce Proceedings. I Don'T Know Where To Start And I'Ve Contacted Various Agencies To Find Out And I Keep Getting The Runaround. Do I Establish Paternity First? Or File For Divorce First? If The Baby'S Biological Father Won'T Submit To A Paternity Test, What Are My Options?? It'S A Big Mess, I Know. But My Husband And I Weren'T Together When I Conceived With My Ex-Boyfriend. Now, The Ex-Bf Is Saying He Won'T Have To Pay Child Support Because He'S Not On The Birth Certificate And He Isn'T Responsible For Anything To Do With Our Son! I Don'T Have Alot Of Money For An Attorney!
There are simular states where the husband would legally be considered the father. I know this happened to me, when I filed for divorce he tried for full custody and I told my attorney he was not the father but it did not matter. Ultimatly my ex signed over his parental rights and my new husband (13 years) adopted my son.
What you need to do is file for divorce, go file for child support and name your ex boyfriend on the papers in family court. He willl have to do one of two things. Either he will submit to paternity to prove he is or isnt' the father. Or if he does not show up, the judge will order a default order.
The hospital I believe was wrong legally you could name anyone to be on the birth certificate Hell you could have name Brad Pitt.
Being on the birth certificate does NOT make you the father, it's just a piece of paper it's what we like to call putive father.
You need to contact the vital satisics office there in your state tell them you were forced to place someone else on the BC and you want to new one issued.
This should help and will get the ball rolling! Good luck
