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.

How Do I Go About In Finding A Free Lawyer?
I Live In Las Vegas, Nv And Want To Take My Sons Mom To Court To Fight Split-Custody Of Our Son
Thanks In Advance
Free lawyers are in the building next to the free trucks and across the street from where you get the free tickets for cruise vacations.
Sorry, that was a cheap attempt at laughs on a serious subject. Custody lawsuits are very expensive. A person who needs representation may contact the local lawyer referral service, Legal Aid, or, if you live in a community with a law school, a law clinic for low-income people. It may be very difficult to find a pro bono attorney in a custody case.
Representing yourself is not an option. Against a party who has an attorney, a pro se litigant has too many obstacles.
If you cannot afford an attorney, at least hire one to consult. That will be $250 an hour or more for a few hours, but it will be far less than having the attorney represent you through the whole process.
The best opportunity would be to sell the car or truck and use the money for an attorney to represent you. Riding the bus, riding a bicycle, and walking is worth it if you win custody of your son.

Malpractice Lawyer Lied To Me?
Let Me Get Something Cleared Up Because My Daughter Is Asking A Question But Not Posting All The Info. I Did A Malpractice Lawsuit Against A City Hospitol Because My Child Almost Died Because Of A Doctors Mistake. She Was On A Vent For A Month,Dialysis Because Her Kidneys Failed,Blood Transfussions,Huge Blood Clots And Her Appendices Were Removed For No Reason And Many More. This Case Has Been Going On For 14 Years. On March Of This Year The Lawyer Called Me And Told Me That They Settled For 420,000.00. At The Time Of The Phone Call I Had 2 Witness That Were Listening On The Phone Call Because I Had Her On The Speaker. Ever Since March I Asked Her To Give Me The County Papers So I Can See And Read What Was Discussed During That Meeting She Had With The Hospitol Lawyers And The The Judge She Continues To Tell Me That There Is No Need For That. Ok I Let Go For Now But On August We Called Her Again And She Asked To Speak To My Daughter But I Had To Be Present Because She Was Still A Minor. Now During This Convo She Again Said My Daughter Would Be Getting 420,000.00 And My Daughter And I Asked Her Again For The Court Papers And Who Was Getting What Out The 420,000.00 And She Still Refused To Answer But We Asked Her Again For The Amount And Once Again She Said 420,000.00. I Didn'T Follow Up Because She Been Our Laywer For A While And I Trusted Her But Yesterday I Received The Power Of Attorney Pappers So She Can Have Power Of Attorney Over The Check So She Can Deduct Her 33 Percent And On The Paper She Gave Me And They Were Not The County Court Papers Just A Paper She Typed Up Said 125,000.00. We Have Never Discussed An Amount Of 125,000.00 And I Don'T Even Know Where That Amount Came From. My Child Still Needs Surgery Due To The Demages They Did To Her. After The Convo With The Lawyer She Came Out And Said That She Should With Draw From Being My Lawyer. How Can A Lawyer Decided Not To Continue Being My Lawyer Because I Asked Her For The County Papers And I Told Her That She Lied To Me And My Child. If She Had Said 125,000.00 From The Begining I Would Never Settle For That Amount After 14 Years. I Would Prefer To Go To Trial...........Let Me Not Forget That I Asked Her To Be Present During The Meetings And She Never Told Me She Was Going To Meet With Them In The First Place. Does Anybody Have Any Suggestions Of What Should I Do?
There are no county papers, the case was settled out of court between the parties and you should be able to see a copy of the settlement agreement that the hospital and Dr.s or who ever you sued signed but there are no "county papers" from the court. It would have been state court anyway. Your lawyer can fire you at any time as a client and to have only gotten $125k for 14 years of work is pitiful. So is the fact that they only settled 400k on your daughter. I hope they also paid all the back hospital bills and will be paying for the continuing medical costs your daughter will no doubt have for the rest of her life.
Legal Defense Laws In Nys ?
I Want To Know If I Get Into A Fight, But I Didn'T Start The Fist First, But I Injured The Guy Pretty Bad.
Would I Get Into Law Troubles ?
I'M Not Over 18.
What Is Legal Defense Then ? Please Explain.
There's a fine line between fighting and self-defense. You have the right to use necessary force to stop the fight but if you intend to fight him you will be charged with assault.
There is no legal defense to a fight. As I already stated you can use necessary force to stop the fight. This would mean you can push them or possibly punch them or walk away, but you can't instigate the fight and you can't continue to fight.
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Adoption Lawyer?
My Husband And I Have Run Into Significant Problems With The Adoption Agency We Have Been Working With For The Past Year, Including Everything From Having Them Post A Portion Of Our Home Study On Their Adoption Site To Texting Us The Birth Of A Baby We Were Set To Adopt Forty-Five Minutes After He Was Born. The Placement Failed In The End, But I Was Still Blown Away By How I Was Told About His Birth. We Are Currently Meeting With Other Agencies And Plan To Move Over To One. With That Said, I Would Like To Know If We Have Rights? Is There A Code Of Ethics For Social Workers? Adoption Agencies? Are There Laws That Protect Adoptive Parents? I Am Interested In Speaking To An Adoption Lawyer Or Someone At The State Or Federal Level? And Would Also Appreciate Any Agency Recommendations You May Have?
What about the rights of the mother and HER baby? Am I right to assume that the mother chose to parent HER baby after all?
Just because you have been approved to adopt doesn't mean you are more entitled to a baby than the child's mother is. A lesson is to be learned here that as potential adopters you are in effect buying a baby even though the adoption agency will 'justify' it's costs. You should also be well aware that mothers can change their minds and parent.
Unless you have absolute prove that the adoption wasn't being handled properly you can't really do anything legally. Did you read the small print?
Anyway all you have to do is use a phone book or google to find a good adoption lawyer.
What Are Some Good Ways That Someone Can Rebuild Their Trust In Another Person? Its Really Important, So Please Help!!!!!!!!
Yes, of course. it sounds important as the situations involved in trust always have importance! Did u lose the honesty with the other person because he lied? did u lose this feel of loyalty maybe because there are events that went on in ur life that make u think twice? it all depends on the situation.
In my case, there was a guy. let's just call him Jesse. we went on and off of the relationship because he would go on and off about his liking me enough to commit without too much physical touch. stuff like that. until this other guy (let's just call him Lucas) came along. Lucas promised he'd love me forever to the point of marrying me. but it was all too fast and i sensed it. he lured me. he played with my heart rather! it all ended badly (and now he likes putting up pics of him and some other girl) Ok well the important thing is I had trust issues with both Jesse and Lucas.
Trust is vital in life. There may be someone in ur life who has betrayed u. It's better for u to walk away (according to most people) but if for some reason u hav to turn to them, make sure they prove their trust. make sure they dont make the same mistakes.
-talk to them
-observe things that ur intuition may be telling u to watch out for
Trust urself! trust begins with u. if we don't trust ourselves, we can't trust anybody.
