4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need a legal professional for any excuse, you need to work closely with them in order to win your case. No matter how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever 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 everything 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 information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they need to assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, each time. In reality, because you may need to discuss last minute details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you simply both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Lawsit For Back Injury And Medical Records...Is The Insurance Company Entitled To All My Records?
I Was Injured(Back And Neck) By Someone Elses Negligence. Is Their Insurance Company Entitled To All Of My Medical Records, Or Only The Ones Pertaining To My Back/Neck Injury? I Dont Think Its Thier Business How Much I Weigh, My Blood Pressure,My Allergies, My Cholestorol, My Gyn History, Or Unrelated Medical Problems I Had Years Ago That Are Not Related To This Injury. Would My Medical Records Be Read In Court If It Went To Court? Would The Whole Jury Be Seeing What Type Of Birth Control I Use, How Long My Periods Last, Etc??
? I Will Also Add That My Atty Is A Friend Of My Family, I Would Prefer He Not See My Gyn Records Lol
Yes, they're entitled to ALL the records, to see if there's any possible way, your current claim could be related to a prior medical condition or injury. YOU don't get to pick and choose which records the insurance company can see.
No one will take YOUR word for it, that other medical records are irrelevant. Think about that!
You cannot win a lawsuit, in court, without those records being given to the judge, jury, and ALL involved parties. Of course, your COMPLETE medical records wouldn't be read in court - that could take MONTHS, if you see the doctor a lot! BUT, they will be reviewed in depth, by your attorney, and the insurance company's attorney, and any RELEVANT parts, in their opinion, would be presented to the court.
If you don't want your friend to see your gyn records, you need to get a different lawyer. He won't be able to represent you fairly, with only SOME information.
I Really Need Help From Someone Who Practices Family Law In Pennsylvania!?
I Want To Separate From My Husband But I Cant Even Afford A Place To Live Until I File For Child Support And Alimony. But If I Am Correct, I Don'T Think I Can File For Either Of Those Unless I Am Already Legally Living Somewhere Else Is That Right? What Do I Do?
If you are in danger or being abused go to a women's shelter. If not, make a financial plan. Get a job. You're choosing to be a single mom. You're going to have to go out and support yourself and your children. You can't rely solely on child support and alimony. This is only meant to pay part of the children's expenses. He may or may not pay his child support regularly. If you can't make more than minimum wage you may want to think about applying for section 8 housing now as the waiting list is 2 years long or more (depending on where you live).
You will need money saved up for an attorney unless you feel that you and your husband can work out all the details of the split amicably or through a mediator. If he takes you to court to fight for your kids you better have a plan in mind. Legal aid usually only helps women in domestic violence situations. You may be able to get a pro bono attorney through the state bar association, but it is most likely that you will have to represent yourself and know the laws and procedures of the court thoroughly yourself to do so.
While you're saving money to support yourself look for community resources for anything you don't think you can do for yourself. Look up criteria that judges look at when deciding custody. This is a very serious decision. Don't go about it half-way or you could lose everything that is important to you.
Also, be aware that final divorce decisions can take a year or two. (Sometimes it's just a couple of months, sometimes much longer). You won't receive any child support or alimony until that is decided upon. There will be a pre-trial hearing (assuming your husband and you don't agree). There will be a trial. I cannot stress enough that you cannot count on that money. You don't know what the amount is or whether or not it will get paid or WHEN it will be ordered. There is the possibility of losing custody of your kids. (I don't know the whole situation). If he appears to be able to offer the kids more stability the judge may award him physical custody.
The first step is to get enough money together to retain an attorney ($1500-$2000 at least), money for deposit and first month's rent, living expenses for at least a month.

ok ma'am i hope this helps. legally you can go to small claims for this. small claims court does not require you to have an attorney so it would be cheaper. also small claims caps out at $5,000. So if you have damages over $5K then small claims isnt for you. also if you have a written agreement that she was supposed to do what you said she was supposed to do then you have a strong case and will win. hope this helps.
then all you get componsated for is everything but upkeep. unless the judge believes so i would bring that up in court as well. sounds like you have a very strong case.
Pre Law And Legal Studies?
Are Pre-Law And Legal Studies The Same Thing?
I am a law school graduate and have practiced law.
Pre-law and legal studies differ.
Pre-law describes an educational objective and is not a major. Law schools accept any academic major.
Legal studies is a rather recently developed major whose objective is to teach students something about the law and the legal process. Sometimes it is aimed toward the education of people who seek careers as paralegals. It is not a good major for preparation for law school as it is considered too easy by many law school admission deans and its method of instruction differs from the unique instructional method of law schools.
The best pre-law majors include history, which teaches critical reading, thinking, and writing skills which are similar to those used in the study and practice of law,
and math and engineering which teach analytical thinking and are known for their difficulty.

7. The health and safety of the child;
8. The amount of time that will be available for the child to spend with siblings;

In relation to visitation by a parent, whether either parent previously has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to any criminal offense involving any act that resulted in a child being an abused child or a neglected child; whether either parent, in a case in which a child has been adjudicated an abused child or a neglected child, previously has been determined to be the perpetrator of the abusive or neglectful act that is the basis of the adjudication; and whether there is reason to believe that either parent has acted in a manner resulting in a child being an abused child or a neglected child;

Whether the person, in a case in which a child has been adjudicated an abused child or a neglected child, previously has been determined to be the perpetrator of the abusive or neglectful act that is the basis of the adjudication; whether either parent previously has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to a charge domestic violence and, if so whether he/she caused physical harm to the victim in the commission of the offense; and whether there is reason to believe that the person has acted in a manner resulting in a child being an abused child or a neglected child;
