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.

How Much Does A Lawyer/Attorney Make Fresh Out Of Law School As A Starting Salary?
I Heard From Various Individuals That Law School Is Not Even Worth It. Once You Get Into Law School, An Incredible Amount Of Debt Gets Racked Up, Thus Decreasing Your Actual Salary Once Starting The Profession. Also I Have Heard That Once You Actually Graduate From Law School And Become A Certified Lawyer/Attorney, It Is Incredibly Hard To Find A Job At A Law Firm As Law Firms Are Really Doing You A Favor By Hiring You. Is This True? I Have Also Heard That Once You Start Working For A Law Firm, You Only Make About $30-40K A Year, With Huge Amounts Of Debt Piled On.
I Really Enjoy Law And Find It Incredibly Interesting But These Shortcomings Of Being A(N) Lawyer/Attorney Makes Me Want To Look Elsewhere For A Career.
I Need To Know Are These Sayings True Or Not? (Please Answer In Complex Detail):
1) Are Law Firms Really Doing You A Favor By Hiring You And Is Finding A Job Difficult?
2) Is The Starting Salary For A(N) Lawyer/Attorney $30-$40K And If So, How Long Does It Take To Finally Start Earning Six Figures After Continuing The Profession?
Thank You In Advance!
Here are my stats:
I am a licensed attorney who went to a top-100 law school. I graduated in the top half of my class. I have a unique specialization - tax - that most attorneys don't want to touch, and will soon have advanced licenses in addition my law license for tax practice.
I owe $120,000 in law school debt alone. I had a full scholarship for undergrad, so I had no student debt going in to law school. Most kids aren't that lucky.
I currently make $48,000 at an accounting firm. I'm not even technically working as an attorney. I do legal research, write memos, call and write letters to the IRS and state taxing bodies, but I don't have JD on my business card or any indication on my work correspondence that I'm a lawyer. It's frustrating and mildly humiliating.
My friends and classmates make between $40,000 and $110,000. The one making $40k works as a county prosecutor, and she only works 40-45 hours a week. Two making around $60,000 work as civil litigators, one in PI, one in general litigation, both work 60-70 hours a week. The one making $110,000 works at a large firm in their tax department, not by her own choice. She works 80 hours a week. She has literally not had a day off since she started work last August. Not Thanksgiving, not Christmas, not even her birthday. She has not had a single day where she did not work and bill time.
You make good money as a lawyer one of two ways - (1) go to a good school, land in the top of your class, and work for a large law firm, working like a slave; (2) get experience in a small or mid-sized firm and then get to the point where you open your own office and build a client base that generates good revenue. As a point of personal advice, you actually have more net worth doing the latter than the former. Most big-shot lawyers I know are in debt up to their eyeballs. They're awful at managing money, so even though they can have huge salaries they're still just as broke as they were starting out as a first-year associate. Debt is your worst enemy.

Can Someone Please Help Me With My Legal Research?
I'M Doing Research Regarding The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Issue Is Whether Or Not A Caregiver Is Allowed To Give His/Her Qualified Patient An Ingestible Form Of Marijuana Due To Complications That Prevent Him From Smoking It.
So Far, I Know That It Is Legal But I Only Found Out Because Of The Q&Amp;A At The Michigan.Gov Website But I Still Can'T Find Any Cases To Back It Up. Can Someone Please Help Me By Giving Me Key Terms To Type In The Westlaw Database? I'Ve Been Searching For Hours :(.
I authored the brief that resulted in what was for a time the leading Michigan Court of Appeals case on medical marihuana in Michigan (People v Redden). The Westlaw search query that you want to use is "medical +2 (marijuana marihuana) +2 act & ingest!" (without the quotes).
This search query brings back 8 cases, including the case People v Carruthers, 301 Mich App 590; 837 NW2d 16 (2013). In Carruthers, the Michigan Court of Appeals held that using marijuana brownies violated the law because they did not contain "usable marijuana" under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Court reasoned as follows:
“By excluding resin from the definition of ‘usable marihuana,’ as contrasted with the definition of ‘marihuana,’ and defining ‘usable marihuana’ to mean only ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant, and any mixture or preparation thereof,’ MCL 333.26423(k) (emphasis added), the drafters clearly expressed their intent not to include resin, or a mixture or preparation of resin, within the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ They therefore expressed their intent not to include a mixture or preparation of an extract of resin. Consequently, an edible product made with THC extracted from resin is excluded from the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ Rather, under the plain language of the MMMA, the only ‘mixture or preparation’ that falls within the definition of ‘usable marihuana’ is a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
So to answer your question, the manner in which the marijuana is ingested into the body is not the determinative inquiry. Rather, the dispositive question is whether an ingestible contains "usable marijuana" as defined by the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. My understanding is that ingestibles are generally created using resin, which Carruthers says violates the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. According to the holding in Carruthers, an ingestible would not violate the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act if but only if it constituted "a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
I would also offer the following two caveats. First, be careful relying on legal opinions such as the Q&A at the michigan.gov website because it is impossible to determine who wrote the content or when it was last updated, and it will not constitute a defense if the information is incorrect, which appears to be the case in this instance. Second, the Michigan appellate courts have essentially eviscerated the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act and continue to do so with extremely narrow interpretations of that law. So always be sure to err on the side of caution by drawing the most conservative conclusions that you can when interpreting this law or the cases that construe it. While this is not what most medical marihuana clients / users want to hear, it is the reality under the current Michigan judiciary. I hope this of help. Good Luck with your research.
When A School Searches You Can You Refuse To Comply Until You Speak With A Parent Or Lawyer?
I Know That A School Can Search You Or Your Belongings Without Probable Cause. All They Need Is Reasonable Cause. But I Was Wondering If You Told Them That You Refuse To Comply With Them Until You Speak With A Lawyer Or Parent If They Could Do Anything. Isn'T It A Persons Right To A Fair Trial With Legal Representation? Thank You For Answering.
They are under no duty to wait for a lawyer - not even the police have that duty. As for your parents - better check with them before you pull this kind of stunt. If one of your parents gets pulled out of work because you've decided to "stand on your rights" to hide your cell phone, my guess is that you're a dead duck.
Schools have the right to search you and your belongings for contraband. If you will not cooperate, they can call the police and have you subdued.
A school search does not fall under the right to a fair trial - best start reading Supreme Court decisions, little lawyer.

Sexual offences, a few directly apply to minors
Oh and criminal negligence and failure to provide necessities, sections 219, and 215 respectively.
