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.

Civil Litigation Help Needed?
In June Of 2008 I Received A Letter Which Was Forwarded From My Home Which I Sold In May Of 2008. The Letter Was From An Attorney And Stated That Someone Fell On My Property And To Contact My Insurance. I Thought It Was A Scam But Still Faxed It Over To My Insurance. I Never Heard Anything Else In 2 Years. So It Is 2010 Of November, I Am Now Living In An Apartment And Have Been Since 2008 And I Received A Letter From The Philadelphia, Pa. Gas Company And Water Company And The City Of Phila., Pa Stating That We Are All Defendants In The Case Of A Slip And Fall. Also, My Neighbor Was Named As A Defendant As Well. Ok, So There'S 5-6 Of Us Being Sued By One Person. I Had Never Been Served With Official Papers, Only That Letter From 2 Years Ago. I Have Gotten Advice From 3 Lawyers. One Told Me To Contact My Former Insurance And Find Out What Happened, So I Did. Unfortunately, I Found Out That The Insurance I Carried On The House Does Not Cover Liabilities. So, I Talked To Lawyer #2 He Asks Me To Go Out To Dinner And Talk About It And Asked If I Was Married And All Kinds Of Irrelevant Stuff. So, I Quickly Drop Him And Got To Lawyer #3. I Tell Him Everything And He'S Seems To Be Fine. I Asked What Is The Worst Case Scenario, Can They Garnish My Wages, Or Levy My Bank Account If This Person Is Actually Telling The Truth And Wins, He Skips Around And Doesn'T Answer The Question And Just Says &Quot;You Don'T Want Them To File A Judgment On You.&Quot; So, I Found Out That My State Pennsylvania Doesn'T Not Allow Civil Judgments To Garnish Your Wages, I Have The Exact Legal Number And Paragraph And Blah, Blah That States This So I Felt Better. So, My Question Is Still... &Quot;Can They Levy My Bank Accounts?&Quot; I Can'T Get An Answer And Am So Frustrated. Btw This Woman Claims To Have Fallen On My Property As Well As The House Next To Where I Used To Live. Don'T Know How In The World That Could Happen. Anyway, If Anyone Knows Anything About Civil Litigation That Would Be Great. Lawyer #3, Would Not Give Me A Direct Answer And That Bothers Me. I Just Want To Know If In Fact This Lying Lady Wins, Can They Levy My Bank Accounts. Remind You I Have Still Never Been Served By Her Lawyer. My New Apartment Complex Accepted A Letter And Signed For Me But Lawyer #1 Said That Still Doesn'T Mean I Have Been Served. Is He Correct? I Was Going To Try To Use Defective Service With The Judge To Get Myself Off Of This Nonsense Case. It Has Been Two Years And Had I Been Served I Could Have Been Building My Case By Now. However, They Want To Go Into Arbitration In One Month And I Just Got Notice Of It 2 Years After The Fact. Also, Was Going To Try The Statute Of Limitations. Can I Say This? Right Not I Can'T Seem To Get One Straight Answer Out Of The 3 Lawyers So Far. Please Help.
They Cannot Garnish My Wages In Pennsylvania, I Know This To Be True.
Can They Levy My Back Account?
Should I Use A Lawyer For The Arbitration?
Should I Use The Defective Service As A Defense?
Should I Just Send A Letter And Not Go To The Arbitration?
If She Wins, I Know A Judgment Can Mess Up My Credit, But At This Point I Really Don’T Have The Money For A Lawyer. So Should I Go Pro Se?
You didn't give enough details to make a final judgement call, so I will address some points you may wish to persue.
First, Did you own the home at the exact time and date of the alleged slip and fall?
Was the alleged victim a resident, occupant, visitor, guest or otherwise invited onto the property or was she a tresspasser?
What are the exact date and times of BOTH alleged slip and fall incidents and the exact distance from each other on the two different properties?
Were there any witnesses to the alleged slip and fall incidents in either or both of the incidents?
Was the witness for each the SAME witness?
What is the reason that the plaintiff took so long to send notices?
Do you know the timeframe required by law for the delivery of such notices and did the plaintiff comply? If Not, check the LAW!
In each of the above instances, you have to consider all possibilities and investigate each point.
With any governmental or Law Enforcement organization or agency, the first thing you must do is establish the true identity of the agent, get their information just like a cop would take yours!
You must also establish if the agency they represent allows them to use alternative identies or fake IDs? You must ask and they must disclose!
No matter what you are told, no matter what they put in writing, you have the right to know what LAW they are claiming to act under! They MUST disclose it!
You have a right to representation! Get a Lawyer! Demand they provide you with legal counsel if you are being charged with any crime!
Never tell them anything... Don't answer any questions until you consult an attorney! You should write down ALL of their question and tell them your attorney will answer their questions as soon as you have consulted with him or her.
Everything they tell you... CHECK IT OUT!
Go online, to the library, to an attorneys office and ask to use the library for research!
As for freezing assets, accessing your checking or savings account, taking money out of your accounts for any reason, they need a court order! Ask to see it, and tell the bank that if they can't produce it, you want your account reverted to it's previous status and balance or you will be seeing your attorney in the morning!
If they don't produce one, See an attorney in the morning and persue it!
You MAY have issues with services of process with your new appartment complex being authorized to accept legal process in your 'stead'... did you previously, in your lease, or verbally authorize the appartment complex to accept process for you? If NOT, then THEY may have violates the law... I do not know your location so I cannot assess that issue for now... however, there is such a thing as 'Chain of Custody' that may have some effect on the issue.
Check the administrative laws of your local court for applicability.
ALWAYS! Check, Verify, Authenticate!
ASK QUESTIONS... and demand answers! Always tell them to show you the LAW!

Does A Family/Divorce Lawyer Have To Go To Court?
Many People Told Me I Should Become A Lawyer. I Am Currently Interested In Becoming A Family/Divorce Lawyer, But I Am Not Interested In Going To Court. Does This Field Require You To Go To Court?
Of course they do. Behind criminal lawyers, family lawyers probably spend more time in front of a Judge than anyone. All divorces have to be signed off on by a Judge, plus most divorces include custody disputes, which usually involve a Judge having to make the final decision. Family and divorce law is primarily adversarial, which means going before a Judge.
The only type of lawyers who don't go to court are in-house counsel for large companies who provide legal advice for the company and patent lawyers (which requires having a science or engineering background from college). Every other type of lawyer will be going to court at least occasionally. But family lawyers moreso than most.
Help!! Any Family Law Lawyers Amongst Us? I Need Some Help Interpreting Part Of A Legal Custody Document...?
&Quot;Should Either Parent Require Childcare For Ten Or More Hours While The Child Is In His/Her Physical Care,The Other Parent Shall Have First Option To Provide Such Care&Quot;.
My Daughter Drops Her Toddler At Day Care At 745Am. She Usually Is Able To Pick Her Up Her Baby Before Or At The 10Hr Mark. However Does The Wording Of The Above Custody Order Imply That The Father Has The Legal Right To Pick Up The Baby As Early As He Wants From Day Care Once He Determines That The Baby Will Be In Daycare Over 10Hours
If you have a attorney who handled this or a domestic court to call, you should ask for a clarification. I don't take the order as permission to just take the child. I do see it as the option of the other parent making arrangements to have the child for the period where the other parent would be unable to have the child rather than a placement facility if the child will be away for 10 or more hours as a job or other need, then the father would be able to request to have the child on those time periods. For instance , he may work 11 to 7 and wish to keep his child from 8 to 6 if he wished to rather than have the child in daycare. He may get off weekdays instead of weekends and the care would interfere with days he could have custody to be with his child with quality time. Domestic Relations would be able to help with this and you should have a office in your area. I am not a lawyer, just have had domestic relations classes and lived through it as a child of a divorced family.
