4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need a legal representative for any excuse, you need to work closely using them in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Listed here are four important ways to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - particularly information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to help them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, every time. The truth is, because you may want to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Modifying Shared Parenting Plan?
My Ex And I Have Shared Parenting Where We Are Both Deemed Residential Parents- We Share Our Daughter Week To Week; One Week With Dad, One Week With Me. To Avoid A Very Long Story, This Plan Has Been Effective As Of Last Year 2008 For Our 6 Year Old Daughter And I Truthfully Have Regretted Every Moment Of Agreeing To This Spp With Our Divorce. I Have Been Reading Some &Quot;Ohio Laws&Quot; For Modifying Shared Parenting Plans, But I Wasn'T Sure If Anyone Else Has Had Experience With Changing Their Plans Or Not- I Want To Get The Spp Modified Where My Ex Only Sees Her Every Other Weekend And A Day Or Two Through The Week. I Just Don'T Think A 6 Year Old Girl Should Be A Part From Her Mother Like This- And Why My Deadbeat Attorney Didn'T Fight For Me Or Why I Didn'T Just Fire The B$@$#%@#%, I Can'T Go Back, But Now I Want To Look Forward To See What I Can Do. My Ex Works Is The Kind Of Man That Could Fool A Blind Man- Meaning, People Think He'S God Because He Is In The Military (But He'S Truly A Manipulator) And I Am A Hardworking, Well Educated, Self-Supporting Mother. I Am Financially Capable Of Hiring An Attorney, But I Want To Go In Fully Prepared And Research All I Can Before I Make That Decision.
continue to do your research and also call around to different lawyers and get some advice, most first visits are free or you can do a phone consult....
Your ex might agree to a modified plan, depending on your situation?
Is the plan working out great for him and your daughter right now?
Sometimes modifying the plan could make the other parent insecure about child support, so if you approached the subject and he knew money was not a motive, that might make it easier to compromise...
I do not have experience with changing the plan and do not know anyone personally who has done this, to be able to tell you the outcome.....Good luck....:)

Is Money Received From A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Taxable?
"A wrongful death lawsuit is the legal term applied to a lawsuit that claims that someone died as a result of the negligent, wrongful and/or intentional acts of another. The lawsuit consists of two parts, a survival action and a wrongful death action. The survival action allows recovery for the deceased persons injuries until death. These damages may include conscious pain and suffering, medical bills up until death, and any lost wages from injury up until death. Punitive damages may also be recoverable. Any proceeds recoverable under this part of the case will get distributed to the heirs in accordance with the deceased person's Will. If their is no Will, there is a law which determines how much each heir can recover.
The wrongful death action is the part of the case that allows the heirs of the deceased to recover for their losses that are associated with the death. These losses typically include the economic value of the loss of guidance, advice, support as well as lost companionship and security. Lost wages are also recoverable. However, the mental anguish for losing a loved one is not recoverable under this act. Some examples of these economic losses are:
*Lost earnings of the deceased person
*Lost care, guidance, advice and support
*Lost inheritance in some cases
*Hospital expenses after death
*Lost prospective earning capacity
*Lost value of household chores
*NOT RECOVERABLE: grief, mental anguish, etc...
Wrongful death recovery is not part of the estate and is distributed without regard to decedents' Last Will and Testament. In addition, wrongful death proceeds are not taxable. The survival proceeds are part of the decedents estate and their may be tax consequences involved for the estate."
I Really Want To Know What Lawyers Do?
Ermm... Well Im In Yr 8 And Im Not Sure What I Want To Be When Im Older. I Was Just Wondering What Exactly Do Lawyers Do And Is It Hard Work. Also I Dont Want To Be Defending Murderers, Im Not Sure How It Works. Also If U Have Any Experience, Being A Lawyer, Just Say How U Found It Or Find It And What You Think Is Good And Bad About It. Plz Also Tell Me If U Need To Get Really Good Grades
There are many different kinds of lawyers, and most are not criminal lawyer who work in court rooms defending criminals like you see on TV.
Essentially, the law is very complex and not everyone has the time or critical thinking abilities to read, understand, apply and examine it. A lawyer's job is to do just that so that their clients don't have to. Individuals, companies and governments hire lawyers to tell them about the law.
This is about the simplest definition I could give that basically encompasses all types of lawyers. I would suggest you thinking about what you want to study specifically (criminal law, family law, business law, intellectual property law, etc.) and then get a book about careers in that field.
To get into a decent law school you do need to get good grades. If you're only in secondary school, though, you don't have to worry much yet. You can only enter law school after you already have a bachelor's degree in some other subject, unless you're a child prodigy or something!
After a bachelor's degree and law degree, you then have to get accepted into the BAR (not the place where you buy beer! The bureau that certifies practising lawyers and judges) and get licensed to practise in your state/province/county.
To get into law school, you do need good grades from your previous university studies, but you also need very good critical thinking skills. You will eventually have to take an LSAT exam. You can even check online now for practise/example exams to see what kind of skills you'll need.
Is A Lawyer Who Practices Law Solo Considered A Law Firm?
I Noticed That Many Lawyers Who Practice Solo Use The Term &Quot;Law Firm&Quot; On Their Website. Is A Single Lawyer Considered A Law Firm? On Wikipedia It Says It Is But On A Dictionary Website It Says That It'S A Firm Of &Quot;Lawyers&Quot; Which Is Obviously Plural. Which Is It?
If a lawyer has formed a legal entity (e.g., corporation, professional corporation, limited liability company, etc.), even if it only has one licensed/practicing attorney, then the entity may still be considered a "law firm."
