4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you really need a legal representative for any reason, you must work closely along with them in order to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important strategies to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're planning to reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most especially information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, every time. Actually, because you may need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important in order to convince the legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

What Is A Litigation Lawyer? What Do They Do? Explain To Me Please!?
Lawyers, like doctors, specialize. A litigator is one who presents the case before a judge. Most litigators use law clerks, paralegals, or associates to help prepare their cases.

Constantly looking for work..............
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing; it is in absolute CRISIS!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), *myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), *myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been 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.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
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 (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****<<<<<
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 future 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, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. 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 opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

Can Jag Help Me Find A Divorce Lawyer In My Home Of Record?
I'M Researching Divorce Lawyers, But Have No Recommendations And No Friends Who Have Used A Divorce Lawyer.
First, can you add info about whether you are the service member or your spouse? Also, what's your home of record and are you living in housing on base or in the town surrounding base? The last part is important because if you are living in town, have bought a house, changed your drivers license to that state, etc., you would have to file in the state you are living in now..disregard that if you are still attached to your home of record.
Next, if your spouse is the service member, unless you signed something anything prior to your marriage, you are entitled to at least a part of their military benefits (depending on length of marriage, reasons for divorce (because some states are "fault" based states meaning you can be stripped of certain financial benefits if, for example, you are divorcing due to adultery and you were the responsible party), etc. If you are the service member, definitely speak to the JAG because, while they cannot actively serve as advocates in family law situations (which it seems like you are aware of which is great!), they do advise and can point you in the right direction. As a Marine, it's always funny to see the male JAGs when it's "their week to have the box of tissues" because they really don't know how to handle the tears..they are still great attorneys though, it's just one of the few situations you will ever see male Marines not totally at ease.
Another source you can check with if you are still a resident of your home state is to call the state's bar association to get recommendations. Tell them what kind of lawyer you need but emphasize the service connection because there are usually many prior JAGs that will know the ins and outs of that system. Good luck and if you need any more direction or explanation with anything I said, feel free to email me and I'll help as much as I can.
Top 10 Law Firms In The Us ?
There is no "top" because there is no agreed measure. There is not even any agreed way to measure whether one has "won" a case. You could look for the ones with the most lawyers, or the most income, or the most income per partner, or the one with lawyers licensed in the most states, but unless you know what you mean by "top' there is no way to answer.
Should Stem Cell Research Be Legal?
STEM CELL RESEARCH IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN LEGAL.
The debate is over the question of Public Financing of stem cell research on Human Embryos.
There are other sources of stem cells - from adults, from umbilical cord blood (which does not harm the baby). But none of these are addressed in the current debate.
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BAN ON RESEARCH OF ANY TYPE OF STEM CELLS - only a ban on spending PUBLIC money to kill embryos to harvest their body parts.
