4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a legal professional at all, you must work closely using them so that you can win your case. Irrespective of how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most especially information other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. In fact, because you may want to discuss last second details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Okay Well My Daughters Grandmother Is Trying To Take Her From Me Because She Never See'S Her. But I Am Not Unfit And I Am Breastfeeding. The Reason She Never See'S Her Is She Makes Lies About Me And Then Kicked Her Son Out For Standing Up For Me. Then Told Her Son Not To Come Back Unless She Had Morgan(My Daughter). Anyway She Is A Very Unfit Person To Even Watch Morgan. They Smoke In Her Home, 9 People Living In This Small Home, And Also She Left Her Newborn In The Car During Winter For An Hour. Is There Any Chance She Could Get Rights Of Any Kind Over My Daughter? I Really Dont Want Her Watching My Baby Or Even Being Near Her.
She has no rights at all!
If your home is in good condition, and your a good parent
your good to go!
Its not a good idea to give her Morgan. Well, she might want poor Morgan to take her anger out on. You can tell she is furious, as youve said "she kicked her son out for standing up for me"
that detail tells a million things:
She is not patient, you have to be very patient with kids..
She is crazy.
She is a bad parent..
You've also mentioned smoking? If she does have any reason which i completly doubt, to take Morgan out of your home you can use this agaist her. Three simple words..
Morgan can develope lung cancer, asthma, and many other difficulties for second hand smoke..You wouldnt want a child developing theese problems you could've advoided.
WHAT A PHYSCO! How do you leave a newborn in the car in the winter. And for an hour! Poor baby couldve died of some hypothermia or something! That lasy shouldnt have kids!!
Honey and your breastfeeding, yyour milk will "dry up". What if poor morgan wants breastmilk? You can get it at the milk bank but its fairly expensive..and who would want some strangers breast milk?
If you cant take care of Morgan talk to someone else. Like Morgan's father..if he is fit for taking care of her then let him take care of morgan. If you give Morgan to that physco...you rather should kill morgan.
Find someone close to you.. who can care for Morgan and can become her legal parent, but tell them that you still want to see Morgan as many times as your want and unsuporvised. They will agree if your unfit because of economical problems..
Look, she has no right to Morgan. AT ALL!
Dont make the biggest mistake of you and your daughters life..
I agree with you completly, i wouldnt want her near my baby either..
Good Luck and god bless you and morgan.
Discuss The Role Of Law And Lawyers In Controlling The Social Behaviour?
Whenever the bull of religious brainwashing fails, there is the complete bull in the news media. If that also fails, we got lawyers. Plus jails, prisons, and even death chambers. Lawyers often become lawmakers, and write laws telling you how to live your life, including laws that could never be enforced. Read Chapter 3 of my book (it is FREE, on-line) for a really scathing analysis that answers your question. Prof. John Kitchin, psychology
Body Injury Claim Against Me.?
So I Was In An Accident About A Year Ago And The Other Party Had Filed For A Boy Injury Claim. It Was A Minor Accident In Which Their Bumper Was Damaged And My Driver'S Side Was Scratched Badly. As Far As I Know And I Saw, The Two People In The Opposite Car Were Pretty Good And It Seemed They Didn'T Have Any Fractures. Alright, So We Met Again In The Court When I Went To Collect My Dl And Even At That Time They Were Pretty Good And Came With Their Lawyer. Now, They Are Still Arguing To Get A Body Injury Claim, Most Probably From My Observation For Soft Tissue Injury As They Seemed Fit At Both The Times I Saw Them.
My Real Problem At This Point Is That Now I Am Switching My Insurance And Terminating My Previous Insurance, With That Body Injury Claim Still On File. The Agent With Whom I Had The Previous Insurance Is Very Reluctant In Cancelling The Policy And Tells Me That Cancelling The Policy Might Have Diverse Effects On The Claim And That The Insurance Company Might Not Fight For Me And Would Easily Pay The Liability Of 25K That I Had. As A Result, The Other Party Might Come After Me Suing Me For More Money. Thus, Cancelling The Insurance And Going To Another Company, The Insurance Company With Whom I Still Have The Claim On File Wouldn'T Try Hard To Help Me. Is It So? What Do You Guys Think About It? Would An Insurance Agency Just Give Up 25K Because I Terminated Their Policy, And So That The Other Party Might Ask For Money And Come After Me Filing A Lawsuit?
And Even If The Amount Crosses The Liability, Does The Insurance Agency Still Defend Me To Come To A Proper Settlement Above The Liability Amount So That The Other Party Might Not Come After My Butt To Grab More Money Once The Liability Has Been Paid To Them.
Please Help Me.....This All Stuff Is Too Confusing.
So many issues. No wonder you are confused.
First, the claim is against your current insurer. The claim goes against the policy in effect at the time of the accident.
So, your agent is right. If your current insurer were to cancel you, that would have a very bad effect on your rates. It is better to change insurers before a cancellation becomes in effect. Even if you receive a NOTICE of cancellation, if you change before the cancellation becomes effective, you can honestly answer application questions that you were NOT cancelled (you voluntarily changed BEFORE cancellation).
Moving on... Your insurer has a duty to defend you. However, if they pay the limits of insurance, they have (as a matter of law) fulfilled all obligations under the policy. Even if a claim is not worth much, it does not take much for defense costs to reach $25k. and often they would rather settle and save defense costs and eliminate the possibility of an adverse verdice
HOWEVER, if they settle the case, they would need to get a release of YOUR liability. The reason for this is that, unless they have resolved YOUR liability, they have breached their fiduciary liability to you. Some states allow them to post the entire $25,000 to retire their obligations, but most would hold that the insurer must either settle/retire your liability (in exchange for payment), or provide a defense.
So, lets say that your state allows the insurer to tender their limits of insurance, can the plaintiff go after you for more? The legal answer is yes. However, unless you are independently wealthy, it is virtually unheard of for plaintiffs lawyers to pursue you in excess of your insurance. They have no interest in garnishing your wages or selling your property. They are after the easy money -- insurance funds. I would not worry about the plaintiffs going after you personally, it is virtually unheard of.
Whether or not you terminate the insurer will make virtually no difference to their defense posture. Some settle easier than others, but with such a small policy, your terminating their insurance will have almost no impact on their litigation strategy.
The reason for this is simple. The insurer's sales and claims departments are completely separate. Even the underwriters do not deal with individual claims. What this means is that the claims people do not know (or care) who you are currently insured by. They follow their own procedures without regard to sales.
This is different when you get into business policies and products liability policies for large companies. But then you are talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars in premiums (if not more), and usually a deductible (or self insured retention) of $25,000 or more. There, the client's views on settlement can (but need not) matter more.

Question For Legal Assistants And Law Clerks!?
I'M Looking To Get Into The Field And Would Love Some Advice: How'D You Get Started? Did You Have Any Education That Helped You Get Into The Field Or Just Start? What Do You Think Of Your Jobs? What Are The Hardest/Easiest Things You Do?
Regarding being a Legal Assistant and/or a Law Clerk: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>>BACHELORS degrees from traditional colleges/universities.
THE hardest thing about this vocational field is finding a job. There are already simply way too many Legal Assistants and Law Clerks. There just are no available jobs in this field.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing; it is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), *myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), *myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Legal Assistant and/or a Law Clerk: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>>BACHELORS<<< degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (>>I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
