4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You If you want an attorney at all, you have to work closely together to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important strategies to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could find out about 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 have to enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are promptly, each time. The truth is, because you may have to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important to be able to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Help Finding A Texas Law!!!! Attorneys And Perjury.?
I Am Looking For A Specific Law In The State Of Texas That Would Entail The Following:
Texas Law Requires Your Attorney To See To It That You Tell The Truth. Your Attny Cannot And Will Condone Any Testimony By Which You Are Less Than Truthful.
If Someone Can Help Me Find The Specific Law That Covers This Area, That Woudl Be Great.
You are probably thinking of Rule 3.03(a)(5) of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, which states, in pertinent part: "A lawyer shall not knowingly . . . offer or use evidence that the lawyer knows to be false." You can find this at www.txethics.org. This is not a law, but a rule of professional conduct, the violation of which can give rise to disciplinary proceedings. Of course, the person who gives the false evidence is also guilty of perjury, which is a felony.
Is There Any Organization Or Help A Low Income Parent Can Get To Help With Child Custody.Legal Aid Was No Help?
I Have A Friend Who Has A Child Custody Hearing July 19Th And Deposition This Friday. She Can Not Afford An Attorney But The Father Makes Almost 100K A Year And Can Afford One. I'M Afraid Of Her Just Getting Push Around And Bullied The Fathers Attorney.Legal Aid Of Broward County Florida Said They Will Not Take The Case. Is There Anything Else She Can Do Or Any Other Organization She Could Contact That Could Help Her Or Give Her Free Legal Advice?
In a normal situation like this there is nothing to be done....however, if she was mentally or physically abused by this man the local violence shelter might...repeat...MIGHT...be willing to represent her and then ask for lawyer fees from the father.
i would have her call them and see what can be done...they can always reschedule the deposition....and to be honest I have never HEARD of a deposition of the other parent in a child custody case. It sounds to me like they are trying to fish for quotes like "has he ever harmed the child"...well no....Okay, no need to explain further.....has he always provided for you and the child while you were together....well not recently, NO I said while you were together...well yes.....
etc....they want sound bites. I would seek help soon.
Attorney & Lawyers Help? Recommendations?
What Type Of Attorney Would I Need? This Is The Situation. We Are A General Contractor And Have A Contract With A Client For A Commercial Shopping Plaza. We Have Performed The Work. Well, The Client Has Filed Bankruptcy And Owe's Us Around 80K And Left For India For 2 Weeks. The Client Keeps Blowing Us Off. This Has Been Going On For Almost A Year. What Type Of Attorney Would I Go To?
If he filed BK, there probably isnt much you can do. What you SHOULD have done was file a mechanic's lien on the property so you would have some priority to be paid out of the bankrupt estate. It might not be too late to file that lien now. You need to speak with an attorney who handles bankruptcy for creditors.

February 24, 2009 - "Vaccine Court: Autism Debate Continues"
The family of 10-year-old Bailey Banks won their case quietly and without fanfare in June of 2007, but the ruling has only now come to public attention. In the remarkably clear and eloquent decision, Special Master Richard Abell ruled that the Banks had successfully demonstrated that "the MMR vaccine at issue actually caused the conditions from which Bailey suffered and continues to suffer."
Bailey's diagnosis is Pervasive Developmental Disorder -- Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) which has been recognized as an autism spectrum disorder by CDC, HRSA and the other federal health agencies since at least the 1990s.
In his conclusion, Special Master Abell ruled that Petitioners had proven that the MMR had directly caused a brain inflammation illness called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) which, in turn, had caused the autism spectrum disorder PDD-NOS in the child:
The Court found that Bailey's ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. It is well-understood that the vaccination at issue can cause ADEM, and the Court found, based upon a full reading and hearing of the pertinent facts in this case, that it did actually cause the ADEM. Furthermore, Bailey's ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD [an autism spectrum disorder]. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was... a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay.
The Bailey decision is not an isolated ruling. We now know of at least two other successful ADEM cases argued in Vaccine Court. More significantly, an explosive investigation by CBS News has found that since 1988, the vaccine court has awarded money judgments, often in the millions of dollars, to thirteen hundred and twenty two families whose children suffered brain damage from vaccines. In many of these cases, the government paid out awards following a judicial finding that vaccine injury lead to the child's autism spectrum disorder. In each of these cases, the plaintiffs' attorneys made the same tactical decision made by Bailey Bank's lawyer, electing to opt out of the highly charged Omnibus Autism Proceedings and argue their autism cases in the regular vaccine court. In many other successful cases, attorneys elected to steer clear of the hot button autism issue altogether and seek recovery instead for the underlying brain damage that caused their client's autism.
Medical records associated with these proceedings clearly tell the tale. In perhaps hundreds of these cases, the children have all the classic symptoms of regressive autism; following vaccination a perfectly healthy child experiences high fever, seizures, and other illnesses, then gradually, over about three months, loses language, the ability to make eye contact, becomes "over-focused" and engages in stereotypical head banging and screaming and then suffers developmental delays characteristic of autism. Many of these children had received the autism diagnosis. Yet the radioactive word "autism" appears nowhere in the decision.
Should I Stick With The Custody Agreement?
My Boyfriend And I Have An 18 Month Old Son Together. We Recently Split Up At The Beginning Of The Month. We Already Have A Custody Agreement In Place From Last Year. I Have Physical Custody And I Am The Custodial Parent. The Agreement Says That He Goes To His Dad'S House Every Other Weekend, Friday-Sunday Night. And One Weekend Out Of The Month He Stays Until Monday Night. I Have Agreed To Let Him Go Every Weekend To His Dad'S. His Dad Really Wants To Be A Part Of His Life, But I Have Heard That It Makes Me Look Bad To The Courts. Although I Do Not Understand This, My Question Is Should I Just Stick With The Written Agreement Or Continue To Let My Ex Get Him Every Weekend? Keep In Mind Our Split Is Fresh And I'M Honestly Scared He Might Be Doing It To Get Custody Away From Me For Some Reason.
I went through a custody battle three years after my divorce. One thing you should keep in mind is that a child truly needs the balance of two parents, no matter which parent he or she lives with.
As long as the child is with you during the week most of the time and you are the primary caregiver, I feel that there will be no problems. If you feel that he is trying to take this child from you, remember, YOU DO NOT OWN THE CHILD!! NEITHER DOES HE!! The one who will suffer most in a custody battle is the child. Please keep this in mind as things unfold. I hope you and your ex are in communication. This can help to prevent any ugly battles in court.
For the first three years after our divorce, we had joint custody. I, however, was the primary caregiver (my son was with me about 70% of the time). When it came time for elementary school, his mother took me to court and sued for full custody. The judge threw it out of court so she appealed. She won the appeal maybe because she is the mother or because my business took so much of my time even though it did not interfere with my ability or efforts to give him proper care and there was nothing I could do. (I don't understand the appeals courts)
As long as you are giving proper care to your child and not abusing him or yourself, he will not be able to take custody. The fact that you are willing to grant him extra time with the child also is in your favor.
My son has always been in my life, even after that bitter court session. He has always looked to me for guidance and still from time to time does. He is now 32 and lives in Japan (as do I) but most of all, we are best friends.
