4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a legal representative for any excuse, you need to work closely with them as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - especially information one other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must help them win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, each and every time. In fact, because you may want to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important in order to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Pregnancy Advice From In Law??
Ok I Have This Not So Great Mother Inlaw! Now That I Am Pregnant, She Tries To Control Me About Everything, What I Eat Or Do Or Even Wear. She Has Two Daughters And One Son(My Husband). This Is Our First Child! She Already Has One From Both Her Daughters,(2) They Never Took Her Advice Why Does She Insist On Changing Me! I Know What To Do And What Not To! Example Im Drinking Lemonade, And She Will Switch My Drinks To Something She Prefers! And She Does It Infront Of Everyone!!!! Help!!
Oh man, now is the time to put your foot down. My mother in law kept trying to change the name we picked out for our daughter. She finally said she wasn't going to call her that, and I told her, flat out, You will not see her then. Then she said, ok ok, I will call her Emmy (Emma is her name). She now calls her by her real name, and has almost her entire life. I didn't stand for it at all. Turns out her mother picked the names of her children, and she tried to do it with me, HA! The next children we had, she just suggested names, especially middle names, and she never demanded again, because she knew I wouldn't stand for it. If she took my lemonade away, I would make a weird face, get up and get mine back, and if she tried it again, I would just have to say something. Girl, don't let her walk on you, you are a woman, and not even her birth child.
Can I Get Charged For Missing A Legal Consultation Appointment?
I Set Up A Consultation With An Attorney A Couple Days Ago Via Phone And Gave The Law Office My Name And Number, But Decided To Meet With A Different Attorney Instead. Is There Someway That They Can Charge Me (They Charge $165.00 An Hour For A Consultation) For Missing The Appointment Without Calling In Advance? All They Have Is My Name And Number (Which Means They Could Probably Get Other Information Pretty Easily). Or Am I Just Being Completely Paranoid?
Yes, you can get charged for missing a legal consultation. I am a paralegal and I've hunted down people with only their name. We have our ways, databases and legal subscriptions. If a good paralegal knows enough about your situation, and any other information such as who and what the consultation was about, they can get your address.
However, with that said, if they didn't ask for your full information, they probably don't charge for missed appointments. Not all law firms charge for the missed time. It takes too much effort to chase down non-clients.
I Have Been Going To My Dr. For 3 Years Now And Trust Her Completely. She Has Had Me On Seroquel And Wellbutrin For 2 Years And Just Decided To Up My Dosage Of Wellbutrin (Against My Wishes). I Didn'T Have A Reason To Raise The Dose, She Just Said She Wanted To. Well After 1 Week Of Taking The Higher Dose I Had A Seizure (Thank Goodness I Wasn&Quot;T Driving My Son Anywhere!!!) I Fell Off A Really High Chair And Broke My Nose, Lacerated It Resulting In Many Stitches And A Nasty (Soon To Be) Scar And Had A Concussion. When I Went In To See Her After This Event She Said She Knew She Shouldn'T Have Increased The Dose With My Past Medical History Of Bulima (I Guess The Pdr Says Not To Give To Bulima Patients) And She Said That She Also Has Had Another Pt. Have A Seizure At The Higher Dose Too. And The Pdr Says That The Higher Dose Has A High Risk Of Seziures. Should I Sue? I'Ve Racked Up A Lot Of Bills, Had To Drop Out Of School B/C Of The Concussion And Missed 1 Month Of Work.
I'm sorry you had to go through this. Medical malpractice is a negligence issue. However, instead of holding the doctor to an "ordinary reasonable person" standard, we hold them to the standard of the average member of the local medical community, or in the case of a specialist, to the National Standard.
Where it gets tricky is that you MUST present expert testimony to prove a medical malpractice case. Your expert must be knowledgeable about psych meds, must say that your doctor made a choice that was unreasonable, and that didn't meet the medical standard for whatever level your doctor is to be held to.
It's sometimes very difficult to find a doctor who is willing to testify against another doctor, and it can get very expensive. Look in the yellow pages for an attorney who handles med mal, and see if they will give you a no-charge consultation. If you have a good case, they may take it on contingency. Otherwise, this is going to get expensive for you.
Good luck. Namaste.

For Experienced Lawyers/Paralegal?
I'M Going To A Graduate School, Which Was Owned By A Group Of People Until The First Six Months Of 2008. During The Summer Break Of That Same Year We Received A Letter That A New Corporation Had Bought The School.
Since Than We Have Changed The Name Of Our School. We Never Signed Anything At All. The Original Fees And Tuitions Were Set For $475/Unit. However, We Were Informed That The New Owner Increased The Cost/Unit To $628/Unit. Nothing Else Was Said, Written, Published,.... (We Enrolled In 2008, Before The School Changed Owner).
After Registering For The Semester Of Fall 2009 The Registrant Added $630 Detailed As &Quot;Institutional Fee.&Quot;
So My Question Is: Can The School, Without Any Written Agreement, Add Any Amount They Want And Charge The Students For That Amount? Again, We Never Signed Anything Nor We Were Ever Informed Of Any Further Charge By Anybody.
if there is no written agreement - sounds like they can probably do it. however there may be an applicable law or statute. so it is worth checking in to.
Dwi In Texas.....Bad Lawyer!?!?
My Brother Received A Dwi Charge Last Year On October 17, 2009. He Turned 23 On October 28Th. He Got Pulled Over On The Highway For Speeding (I Know, Dumbass!) Coming From Our Mother'S Birthday Party. He Went To Jail And We Bailed Him Out The Next Day. My Mom Got Him A Lawyer (Nunn Law Firm). In This Year Of 2010
He Went To Court In March,He Waited 4 Hours And The Lawyer Rescheduled It.
He Went To Court In April, He Waited 3 Hours And The Lawyer Rescheduled It.
He Went To Court In June, He Waited 4 Hours And The Lawyer Rescheduled It.
He Went To Court In July (Todday) He Waited 3 Hours, The Lawyer Didnt Show Up.....
He Called The Law Firm And They Told Him That His Lawyer Had To Go Somewhere And There Was Another Lawyer Covering For Him. He Waited Another 2 Hours....
He Spoke To The Clerk Lady Lol And She Told Him That His Court Date Was Rescheduled To August And That She Didnt Know Why The Law Firm Didn'T Notify Him...
So Obviously This Is A Bullshit *** Lawyer, My Mom Already Paid Him $1,000 Dollars (My Brother Is Disabled).....The Lawyers Actions Show That He Is Not Capable Of Helping My Brother In The Courtroom.
What Can I Do About This? Do You Think He Could Fire Him And Get His Money Back?
We Couldn'T Afford A New Lawyer :/
Call the law firm and ask to speak to a senior partner. Tell him calmly what you told us.
If that doesn't get action, then say "I am preparing a bar complaint against your firm but thought I would ask one last time if you cannot resolve this matter."
If you don't get action then write a complaint and send it to the State Bar asking for your money back and an explanation. LAWYERS HATE BAR COMPLAINTS!!!
