4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a legal representative for any reason, you have to work closely using them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Listed here are 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 - no matter what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means whatever you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most importantly information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of most information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, each time. Actually, because you may need to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for just about any crime, it's important in order to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

Do Trial Lawyers Have Anything To Lose?
Do They Just File Any Lawsuit That Looks Like They Could Sue For A Large Amount, Without Picking And Choosing Necessarily, In Case They Settle So They Have Nothing To Lose And Just File Away? Or Do They Take A Lot Of Things Into Consideration Like Is It In The Client'S Very Best Interest To Go Through With It, Do They Have Enough Evidence Should It Go To Trial And So Forth?
Trial lawyers have a ton to lose. it costs money to file those papers, they have to pay their legal assistant to draw the papers up, and they do try to do what's best for their client. it depends on the atty's on whether they try to settle or not. some will because they do not like to be in front of the judge, but a lot won't settle unless it's really best because they're not intimidated by the judge. they do have a lot to lose though... money being the biggest. especially if it's an auto accident case because they go off of a contingency fee,meaning they don't get paid if they don't win. this is a really deep question. it could take a lot of time and space to give you a complete answer. but i hope this helped.
Property Management Law?
I Have A Property Manager For My House In Georgia That I Am Renting. It Has Only Been 2 Months Since The Tenants Moved In And They Are Already Saying They Can't Pay The Rent. The Property Manager Received Money To Do A Background Check And Credit Check. I'm Starting To Get Suspicious That The Property Manager Didn't Do A These Checks Even Though She Was Paid For Them. I Asked Her To See Them And She Told Me It Is Against The Law For Me To See Them. I Find That Hard To Believe Since It Is My House The Tenants Are Living In! Can You Please Tell Me The Laws In Georgia Regarding This? Is The Home Owner Allowed To See Cretit Report And Background Info If They Have A Property Manager? Thanks For Any Advice
I am unsure what Georgia law is concerning who can see what. But I know as a former landlord, and someone who dealt with credit issues and tenants with questionable credit histories. Asking for the info UPFRONT is easier than trying to obtain it after the fact. Your property manager should have, at the least, advised you of their scores on their credit reports, so that you could judge for yourself, whether they were credit worthy. My rule of thumb is this, most renters, NOT ALL, have some hinkey credit issues, hence the reason most rent instead of buy. A potential tenant who lies, however, is a bigger credit risk than one who is forthright about it. I will work with someone who has had credit issues in the past and tells me about it, VS I find out about it through the credit check. A release can be signed, and should have been signed by the tenant allowing the release of this information, if not to you directly, then to your property manager, so that a decision could be made concerning one applicants suitability VS another ones. And if she/he is your agent, then it should extend to you by the fact they are acting as your AGENT in this transaction. I suggest a call to the property managers manager/supervisor, the local Realtor board, and a lawyer just OUTSIDE the area in which they are operating (so there is no possibility of a conflict of interest). I would also check to see where the security deposit is being held and make sure I would have access to it, after court proceedings and be ready to lay claim to it and begin eviction proceedings IMMEDIATELY. I know when I was doing this, the first notice needed to be a 3 day Notice to Quit-followed by a copy of that, along with the filing at the courthouse and a Notice to Appear a few days later. I usually tacked the 3 day notice on the door AND mailed it CERTIFIED and kept ALL copies and receipts showing when things were sent, signed for, or not picked up, along with a door service and sometimes a pic of the notice on their door. But mostly, I would start with phone calls. I would keep it polite, professional and most of all, not do it when stressed or p O'ed, as I want compliance not a person in possession of my property with the potential to not only make me lose rent money, but also destroy the property while in possession of it. Trust me, not a good idea to piss off tenants who still have rights to a place. Ask them if they need more time, can they make a partial payment? Maybe the car transmission blew and they had to decide between paying rent on time, or getting the trans fixed so they would still have jobs. Think about it......what would you do? Try to be a tad sympathetic, but not too much, after all, you are an owner, but you also are a human being. Offering a little extra time, keep it short, a week, two weeks? Whatever you think is in order, AFTER you find out WHY they are not paying. If they have some hardship, try and extend some understanding. "I am sorry to hear about your Suzy being sick and you having to miss work. Is she better? Have you returned to work? Would breaking the payment down a little, help you? Can you send me $200 now and then next week another $200?" And so on. If they are bums, they won't send anything, will be unable to send anything at all on short notice and so on. If they are good people, they will make SOME effort to pay a portion, to make a payment plan, and then to stick to it. You can send a letter, affirming your arrangements, ask them to sign and return with to you. You can even state you are not WAIVING any of your rights as a landlord, you can tell them, if they move out by a certain date, and leave the place clean and in good order, you will not pursue a court case against them and so on. There are lots of things you can do. Going to court was never my favorite course of action, but sometimes, a deadbeat would force it. I used the "If you move by" date on one who simply lost his job, had 6 kids and could not pay his rent. He left the place immaculate enough I was able to immediately re-rent the place. Sure I lost 2 months rent (but going to court would not have solved anything) and chances are good, he would have simply had another month to find a place a move and I still would not have gotten any rent for it. This way, the place was left clean, rentable, then turnaround was quicker than going to court and I had no damage and he was quick to leave. Another tenant had tried the not pay rent and stay routine, wouldn't give up a dime, wouldn't pay a portion, wouldn't come to any arrangement and her son was destroying my place. I immediately filed the 3 day, followed on the 4th day with the court date and another notice to vacate and appear with expedited proceedings due to the destruction of property (still took a month to get into court), which I documented, BEFORE filing! Because you are an absentee landlord, this makes it more difficult. No property managers I knew of, woul
My Civil Appeal Is A Complicated Case What Do I Do If I Can'T Afford An Attorney?
My Financial Means Are Limited, And There Were Two Cases Ruled In The Same Manner. (Same District Two Different Court Houses) My Parents Manipulated The Legal System For Their Own Personal Gain. By Then Filing In Two Different Court Houses To Serve Their One Purpose, I Wouldn'T Know Where To Begin.
"My Civil Appeal is a complicated case what do I do if I can't afford an attorney? My financial means are limited, and there were two cases ruled in the same manner.

There is no quick answer to your question. And it would help to know what kind of cases were heard, what the issues were, etc.
You generally have a certain period of time to appeal a final ruling-- 30 days comes to mind, but it varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. And, usually, your trial record will have to show that you made timely objections to the issues of law that you disagreed about and that you exhausted your remedies at the trial level (filing for a reconsideration, for example) in order for you to appeal on those issues. The only other reason to appeal is that the judge's ruling was against the manifest weight of the evidence, but Courts of Appeals do not often overturn a trial court judge for that since the presumption is that he did his job correctly.
You'll have to file your leave to appeal within the allotted time. And then you'll have to present the Court of Appeals for that jurisdiction with your appeal-- including a complete record of your case(s). That means the legal arguments with legal citations to back them up and a complete case file and transcripts from the Court Recorder. If you are poor, you may be able to file "in forma pauperis" ("in the form of a pauper") where the courts will assume the costs of your court record and waive certain formal requirements in filing your papers (doesn't need to be typed, doesn't need to be on particular paper with particular fonts, etc.). Persons filing in forma pauperis are also usually given a great deal of latitude in framing their arguments in their filings.
Appeals practice is a specialty in itself, and many trial lawyers send their appeal's cases to those specialists. So, you are in for a steep learning curve with little chance of success against a trained attorney.

Do I Need A Lawyer For A Petty Theft Charge?
I Was Arrested For Attempting To Steal A $ 1.75 Can Of Beer From Cvs (Really Stupid I Know , Was Really Wasted At The Time And Not Thinking). I Was Arrested And Taken To The Local Precinct And Given A Paper With A Court Date. They Released Within The Hour. I`Ve Never Been Arrested Or Fined For Anything In My Life, Never In Trouble With The Law . Should I Get A Lawyer For The Court Date Or Can I Just Represent My Self ? Is This A Charge That I Can Be Sent To Jail For ?
You don't really a lawyer, but if you think you need one, get one. I doubt that you will be sent to jail, just a fine, and possibly probation.
What Legal Documents Will I Need To Start An Online Clothing Store?
I Set Up My Own Online Clothing/Jewerly Store. But I Dont Want To Publish It Until It Is Legalized And I Had A Few Questions:
-What Legal Documents/Permits/Licenses Do I Need?
-How Old Are You Required To Be To Run An Online Business?
-How Do You Find The Right Ssr?
AS PER THE SITE http://www.youngentrepreneur.com/forum/f...
"While it's hard to give a complete answer without knowing more details about your overall business plan for the clothing store, here are a few thoughts:
The general package of documents you would need for that might include the following:
Incorporation documents - Articles and Bylaws, as well as Shareholder Agreements and instruments setting up voting trusts/irrevocable proxies/etc in the event of multiple owners taking shares.
Generally, city and state business licenses, as well as a Federal EIN.
If you will have employees, you will need employment contract(s), which may need various provisions including nondisclosure.
Depending on the types of clothing sold, certain intellectual property due diligence may need to be performed and documented for (including acquisition of associated IP licenses).
Lastly but not least, you will need uniform commercial code article 2 (sales) contractual instruments to be designed specifically for your business's needs; you would then be able to copy and fill in the blanks of such a contract to suit each order and have a solid sales agreement in place in case anything goes wrong in a given sale.
I would strongly advise against using legalzoom for the formation and/or conducting of any real business, as they only provide the most basic forms and they are very generic in nature and not specific to any one business... This creates ambiguities now, which can cost much more later."
Divorce Amd Custody Hearing.?
I Have An Attorney, So I Filed For Divorce And Full Custody, I Was Also Granted Temporary Custody. Wife Has Been Served And We Are Currently Waiting On A Light Hearing For Custody.The Reason I Asked For Temp.. Custody Was, We Had Arrangements In Sharing Our Son But I Didnt Know Her Living Conditions, Or Where She Was Leaving Our Son While At Work. I Found Her Drug Peraphanelia In Our House Shortly After She Left. And She Threatened To Keep Our Son From Me Once. And Knowing What May Have Been Her Reaction To Getting Served I Was Afraid She May Have Kept Our Son From Me. Can That Full Custody Request Back Fire On Me? What Can I Expect From This Light Hearing On Custody?
In order to get the temporary custody order your lawyer had to file what they call an ex parte application. Once you served your wife with the papers, she has a right to a hearing on the matter.
The real issue is going to be whether you lied to get temporary full custody. If you didn't then I think the temporary orders stay in place with some restrictions on your wife's parenting time and visitation schedules.
This is all something you need to talk to your lawyer about. We all don't know the procedures your court uses, and we certainly do not know all the details; and its a good chance not one of us in Yahoo Land reading this is licensed to give you advice where your hearing is taking place; and even if we were, it would be unethical because you already have a lawyer.
