4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a lawyer for any excuse, you should work closely with them in order to win your case. No matter how competent they can be, they're going to need your help. Listed here are four important ways to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal to them. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - most importantly information another side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should assist 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, when you are promptly, each time. Actually, because you may want to discuss last second details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any kind of crime, it's important so as to prove to the court that you just both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Legal Information, I Need Help?
I Had Sex With A Girl And Recorded It Without Her Knowing And I Showed My Friends And Then Deleted It, She Found Out I Showed People And Now She Wants To Press Charges, The Texts I Have Send Her Prove I Showed People And That There Was A Video, What Charges Can She Press On Me Or Can She Not At All? Need Help Asap
it depends on where you are, how old you and she were at the time..
the circumstances.. ( drugs/alcohol.. obviously voluntary by both parties .. did you edit the recording her house or someplace where she expected privacy.. did she specifically ask about anyone finding out.. )
how badly her reputation is damaged, does she still get hassled, and is she changing school / jobs / moving away.. phych help?
You can be charged with all kinds of stuff, but it depends on the jurisidiction, everyplace has some different laws
-- violation of privacy, violation of federal wiretapping
-- sexual offense / lifetime registration as a sex offender
-- statutory rape, sexual assault (just talking or touching can be assault) - the act of sex may not be the crime..
-- unlawful gains did you profit, either in reputation or with tangible 'stuff' when you showed this; did she lose reputation or 'stuff'
-- besmirched reputation / slander - why did you show it, even truth can be a crime if shared for malicious reasons
-- loss of future cohabitation/income .. her social background; was she in an arranged marraige that is now ruined, has her church (or equivalent) made her an outcast,.. does this movie make her less likely to be employed or less likely to marry the man of her intent?
like I said - every place has different laws and variations. If you are in a really strict community, (or if she sues you from a really strict place) .. and if she can get a really good lawyer.. they can charge you with anything except the Lindbergh kidnapping. (old-time reference)
-- teens are getting branded a lifetime sex offenders for just 'sexting'.
- that guy in NJ/Rutgers University taped his room mate having sex. The room mate later committed suicide. The guy who taped it already got expelled from school ( means all student loan money was wasted- still needs to be repaid) , did a month in jail (20 days + good behavior) ; but the criminal prosecutor is still trying to get more charges, and the family wants to sue for wrongful death.
If you have already been contacted by police or legal officials, then don't delete or destroy anything. that can be considered 'spoilation'. If you intentionally destroy evidence you know the authorities ( police, court, any legal official) wants, then the other person can say anything they want and you can't prove you didn't do even worse things. Plus you get more charges for destroying evidence. If nobody from the court/police has spoken to you, it may not be a concern.
If nothing else, you should apologize - genuinely, and do what you can to put a stop to all the gossip and sharing of files/ texts for good.
Remember that 'deleted' files can usually be recovered if enough smarts / resources are spent trying to recover them. Nothing is 100% non-recoverable.. just really-really hard to recover.
Get a lawyer if you haven't already done so, but don't make a big public deal out of it. Once the news hears what you have done, you will be branded as a horrible person.
(I'm not sure - but I'm not judging you )
What Forms Does The Superior Court Clerk Commonly Provide? For Family Law?
Summons? Sheriff'S Entry Of Service? Verification? Acknowledgement Of Service?
Trying To Find Out Which Forms I Need To Bring To The Clerk To File An Entire Petition For Legitimation. I'M In Georgia, But Anything You Know Will Be Appreciated
You will have to ask the clerk's office, read the rules of court, and/or find a manual for filing legitimation petitions in your local library or legal library, if it is open to the public. You can ask a lawyer, of course, but I assume you can't afford one.
There is a form that must be filed with any pleading filed in Superior Court, which you can find at the link below. No other forms appear to be available online. In most courts, the clerk provides you with the summons when the case is filed. Be sure to keep copies of all documents before you file. You will receive a docket number on the summons, and that must be placed on all other documents. The summons will probably have a section for the rest of the service-related information, which are alternative ways to serve the defendant/respondent, except for the verification.
Criminal Justice Lawyers: What Exactly Do They Do?
I Need To Know Their Duties And Responisbilites For A Project I'M Working On. Anything You Know About It Would Be A Ton Of Help! ;-). Thanks A Bunch:]
Oh Ps. I Need To Know What Recommended High Schol Courses Are Nessecary If Im Looking To Go Into This Field Of Work.
This is almost impossible to answer because Criminal Justice is a huge field. Basically all court cases are either criminal or civil. While Civil is somewhat bigger, criminal justice makes up a major part of the justice system.
Second even if you brake the lawyers who work in the criminal justice system down to the most basic job, you are still left with at least two: Criminal defense attorneies and Criminal prosectioning attory.
Defense attorneies: Defend the people that the police arrest for crimes.
The Prosecution: tries to prove that the police arrested the right person, beyond all reasonable doubt.
But again this is the extermly most simple terms and discribtion of what they do. There is an extreme difference between what a defense lawyer in traffic court does vs. what a defense lawyer in fedural court or on a murder trial does.
But to your question about what is nessecary if you are in high school and looking to work in that field. Really nothing. You still have to go to college, your grades and LSAT (the test for law school) are the most important thing. Even what you major in highschool does not matter that much as long as it is a serious course. English, History are among the best because you have to do a lot of writing which law schools like. But they really don't care that much about your major in college (unless it is something where there is very little writting like Art or Gym) and law school don't care about high school at all. You can be the worst HS student if your college GPA is 3.8-4.0 and LSAT is 175-180 law schools will be all over you.
How Can I Become A Divorce Lawyer Or Be Involved In Family Court?
I'Ve Always Looked Into Law And I Think Becoming A Divorce Lawyer Will Be Best. What Schooling And Test,Exams,Courses Are Requiered? And Same With Family Court?
To become a divorce lawyer you need to go to school and get your law degree. To be involved in family court you need to go to family court and get involved.
Let me ask you a question that may help.
How does anyone get involved in anything?
Depending on what aspect of family court you want to get involved with and to what degree, the amount of training and or schooling will vary.
You could become a janitor and clean the courtroom with little or no training but if you want to become a lawyer you need to start with basic 101 college stuff. While in college they will let you know what else you need to do.
Why Is It Better To Work For A Smaller Law Firm?
1) You will get to do real lawyer's work much sooner. In a small general practice firm, you will probably end up in court, and writing the actual motions and responses in your first month, taking depositions within three to six months, and so forth. Your cases will likely be smaller, so that the consequences aren't as severe if you screw up, but you will be doing a lot of independent work. You won't be completely on your own, if the supervising attorneys have any conscience (or brains), but you will not be locked in a library doing issue research without even knowing any of the facts of the case.
2) The downside is that you will make less money, usually, and have to do a lot of your own scut work, some of which you can't bill the clients for. The upside is that your hours will likely be far more manageable at a smalll firm, and you will make friends with other lawyers in town quicker, since you will actually be seeing them in court, and making deals with them on the telephone, etc.
In short, at a small firm, you will quickly feel like a real lawyer, and act like one, rather than being a galley slave to a "senior partner."
Nurse Or Lawyer ??? Please Help !!!?
So I'Ve Been Lately Disheartened To Pursue My Childhood Dream Of Becoming A Lawyer. I Do Not Want To Go To Law School In Vain. I Know That The Demand For Lawyers Is Very Low. I Have Wanted To Become A Lawyer Since I Was Younger. I Am Now A Senior In High School Thinking Of Reconsidering My Life Goal. My Question To All Of You Is : Should I Go To School To Become A Lawyer Or An Ob/Gyn Nurse Practitioner ?
You want to be a lawyer, so go for it. Demand for lawyers isn't low, but most people can't afford them. Consider starting your own law practice and make it affordable.
You could do it this way: Get your undergrad degree in nursing, a BSN. You will get to take some elective courses, so you can take things to prep for law school, such as logic, psychology, political science, and business.
Once you're ready to apply for grad school, you'll know whether you really want to continue on in nursing, or whether it's still law for you. And if you are one of the ones who isn't snapped up by a law firm, you'll have the nursing to fall back on. On the other hand, your knowledge of nursing will give you an edge if you go into medicine/healthcare-related law.
