4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you really need a legal representative for any reason, you have to work closely using them so that you can win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're gonna reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - especially information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all the information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, each and every time. In reality, because you may have to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important so as to prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and are making strides toward improving your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Majors To Become A Criminal Lawyer?
I Was Originally Planning On Double Majoring In Communication Studies And Political Science W/ A Minor In Arabic Because I Wanted To Be A Journalist. Now, I'M Not Really Sure. I Have Found Criminal Law To Be Extremely Interesting. But I Don'T Want To Limit Myself To One Career, So I Wanted To Keep The Same Majors As I Had Previously Planned. But Would Those Majors Make It Impossible For Me To Get Into Law School? Should I Change It To Psychology? Or Does My Choice In Major Not Really Matter?
And On Top Of That, I'M Not 100% That I Want To Be A Criminal Lawyer Or Even A Lawyer Period. Which Is Why I Was Thinking That Poli Sci Would Be Broad Enough To Give Me That Option.
Any Suggestions? I'M Worried. Thanks
There is no set major for potential law students. Lots do Political Science, English, or Business, but there is no such requirement. I had a blind law school classmate with a Ph.D in Computer Programming I think; a 70 year old retired teacher; business majors; accountants; businessmen; finance; history majors; it goes on. The point is to be able to express yourself clearly and do heavy reading and analysis.

Just How Depressing Is It Being A Lawyer?
****, I Don'T Know How You Could Be Depressed As A Lawyer Making 6 Digits. I Probably Have The Wrong Perception, But What Drains The Human Soul In This Spirit Binding Profession? The Studying? The Social Aspect (If There Is One)? Dealing With Dozens Of Rapists And Serial Killers Per Year? I Was Considering A Profession Here But Wow, Judging By All These Comments, What The Hell?
I am a lawyer and have been one for 23 yrs. There are good and bad parts of the profession, and if it helps I will share them.
Becoming a lawyer takes a 4 yr college degree and then three years of law school (or 3-4 if you go nights Year round instead of days only 9 months a year). Private schools cost more than public schools so if cost is an object - and in my opinion it should be - go to a public law school. In most cases the public law schools are just as good or better than private ones and they cost a fraction of what private schools do. In my state (Florida) the University of Florida and Florida State are the best law schools and their Bar pass rates are as high or higher than the other schools. They are well run, their alumni love the school and support it w/ scholarship dollars and job connections for graduates so consider a state school. If possible, decide what state you think you want to live in when you get out and practice b/c the law schools are geared a lot more to your state's laws (since 90% of your practice will likely be in State, rather than Federal courts) so it is a huge plus to have gone to a law school in the state where you want to stay and practice. It's been a long time since I was in law school and I am sure tuition is not cheap, but no graduate program is and if you go to a state/public school, you will be fine. MAKE SURE YOUR SCHOOL IS ABA APPROVED. Some private law schools are not and this can make it hard or impossible to sit for a Bar exam. About 99.5% of law schools are ABA approved but check to be sure.
Once you have a law degree, you can do anything w/ it and are not cornered into doing criminal work w/ alleged rapists, etc. if that isn't your thing. If you like criminal law but don't want to represent people accused of crimes, become a prosecutor. Other options are civil lawyers (I am one) and representing people who are either suing folks or getting sued (I represent people who get sued for causing accidents, etc). Other lawyers I know do financial planning, wills, estates, family law, adoptions, work for non-profits, grant writing, politics, analyzing laws for companies, mergers & acquisitions, civil rights, teaching, running hospitals and companies - and about 1,000 other things.
I like practicing law. It teaches you to analyze and that opens lots of doors so that you can do what interests you. Since I got out, a lot has changed financially in law and salaries in general fields like litigation have come down some though other specialties (like tax law,etc) remain in very high demand and command big salaries. Chances are you won't get filthy rich but that you can make a decent living doing it if you are honest and care about your clients.
The bad side: sometimes your clients don't understand and appreciate how hard it is to do your job. The solution is just educating them if you want to.
All in all it's still a good field. Don't write it off b/c of a few comments made by people not in the field. If you are interested, considering interning for the court system, a law firm or public defender or prosecutor's office. Find out if you like it before you make a commitment to 3 yrs of law school. I think you will like it. Good luck/

Dealership Forced Me And Several Other Employees To Lease Vehicles We Did Not Want / Threat Of Termination?
Two Weeks After Starting Job I Was Forced To Sign A Lease For A New Vehicle I Did Not Want Or Need. Dealer Told Me Which Vehicle. Later Found Vehicle Leased Appeared As New But Had 1100 Miles And Was Theft Recovered Vehicle. Not Disclosed. I Had To Sign Up Under Threat Of Termination. 10 Mo Later Terminated For No Reason Anyway. I Can'T Find The Law That Prevents Employer Coercion In Nebraska. Did This Same Thing To 5 Other Employees. Help!
Check with a LABOR attorney. There must be a statute in the Nebraska Labor Laws to protect you for being forced to lease an expensive car. This can't go unpunished.
Also, file a complaint with your local DMV since your car is a theft recovery which was not disclosed to you. As well as being forced into a lease as a requirement for being hired. And what about the other 5? Are you still in contact with them? Have them do the same. The DMV will investigate this dealer's practices. If your claims can be substantiated, they could fine the dealer, close it down temporarily or withdraw its license to sell in Nebraska. Good luck.
