4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you really need a lawyer at all, you should work closely using them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're gonna need your help. Here are four important ways to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - especially information the other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they have to assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Many Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you may need to discuss last second details or be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in just about any crime, it's important in order to prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any 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 should win your case.

Charged With Felony, Not Yet Convicted.?
So Long Story Short I Got Charged With A Felony..Iv Never Really Been In Trouble Except For A Seat Belt Ticket. What Happened Was I Was At This Semi Abandoned House At A Party There And I Drank Waaay Too Much, Like Almost A 5Th. People At This Party Were Pretty Much Destroying The Place And **** And Someone Threw Some Dvd'S Out Of A Window Into The Snow, When I Left I Guess I Must Have Saw Them Outside And Took Like 20 Of Them. I Think Someone Helped Me Pick Them Up Too. I Know This Was An Absolutely Wrong Thing To Do And Feel Like A Complete Idiot But As Much As The Law Says I Deserve To Be Charged With A Felony I Really Dont Think That They Courts Should. I Am Going To Be Completely Fuuucked For The Rest Of My Life! Im Only 22 And Took One Year Of College And Was Going To Go Back This Fall But Someone Was Telling Me If Your An Fellon You Cannot Get Financial Aid Or Student Loans, This Is Awful! Im Also An Avid Hunter And So Is My Family, So I'Ll Never Be Able To Go Rifle Hunting Again Or Go To My Grandpas And Other Family'S Houses Because They All Own Guns. This Sucks So Bad, But I Guess I Should Have Thought About That First Right? Oh Well, I Hope I Can Get This Dropped Down To A Misdemeanor Or Somehting..I Would Take Absolutely Anything Besides A Felony! What Do You Think My Changes At That Are? Poor Or What?
A felony charge is ridiculous for that. Hire a criminal lawyer. He/she should be able to at least have the charge dropped down to a misdemeanor. That's how the game is played. They overcharge you and then get you to plead guilty to a lesser charge so they can avoid a trial. You might try calling the DA yourself and talking to him but don't admit to theft.
Having said that, you might want do do some web surfing first and see what constitutes felony theft in the state where you live. It's usually based on the value of the stolen items. Twenty used CDs is worth what? $150? I think there's a good chance that it's not even a felony where you live. If so then it was a bogus charge. I live in Alaska where the stolen property must be worth at least $500 for it to be a felony.
I think your chances might be very good. They probably overcharged you to force you get a lawyer ($$$$) which is punishment enough but your lawyer may be able to get the charges dropped altogether. The CDs were thrown out a window into the snow. They were obviously discarded and you salvaged a few.
ADDENDUM: I just checked Michigan laws. Misdemeanor theft goes up to $1000. Check out the link below. The state has obviously overcharged you. There's no way they could convict you of a felony even if you walked out of someone's house with all those items if they were brand new. From what you've told us the total value of the property is probably less than $200 which puts it into a lower class of misdemeanor in Michigan. And that only applies if it's actually theft.
Please Explain The Following Legal Question:?
With The Exception Of Prostitution In Carson City Nevada Prostitution Is Illegal In The Us But
Live Web Sex Shows Are Legal
Phone Sex Is Legal
Being A Porn Star Is Legal
Going To A Strip Club And Have Someone Dry Hump You Is Legal
Technically You Could Pay Someone For You To Deficate On Them And That Is Legal

But 2 Consenting Adults Of Sound Mind And Of Their Own Free Will Can Not Engage In Sex For Financial Gain
Prostitution is not legal in Carson City. It is illegal in all three of Nevada's major cities (Las Vegas, Reno and Carson City). It is legal in most other countries in Nevada at this time.
You are correct in saying that other activities that might be sexually stimulating are legal, although this is a rather broad concept when you think about it (there's a huge amount of stuff that could be sexually stimulating in some way, shape, or form). Material solely delivered through "the press" is also protected under the first amendment.
It's basically the way the USA had drawn the line on morality vs people's freedom. Some countries say that prostitution is fine and you can do it without any problems, others do not. Some ban pornography as well. Basically it depends, like with most issues, where you draw the line.
That said, I think the USA's position on prostitution is overly restrictive and just gives criminals control of the whole thing. We know from experience in other countries that legalising it usually gives good results- e.g. in Australia, most states have decriminalised it and several states there have converted it to a legal, regulated business that one can be officially licensed to carry out, and this hasn't caused those states to descend into hotbeds of sin. It hasn't entirely eliminated illegal prostitution but it has reduced it substantially.

Legal Defense Question?
Bob Has A Knife In His Hand And He Is Standing In A Bucket Of Cement And Cannot Move. He Shouts To Carl, Who Is 15 Feet Away, &Quot;I'M Going To Kill You!&Quot; Carl Pulls Out A Gun And Shoots Bob Dead. Carl Is Charged With Murder. If You Are The Defense Counsel, What Argument Could You Make That Carl Has Exercised Justified Use Of Force?
Key question is did Carl know Bob could not move and as the other poster pointed out knew he did not have any skills as a knife thrower. The key to self defense is, at least in most states; the person who raises the self defense must be in imminent and danger of serious harm or death. The standard is: would a reasonable person in Carl's situation believe the danger was imminent and serious.
Some jurisdiction also require a person, before he uses deadly force to retreat, unless they are at home or there is no place to retreat. If that is all the facts you have; Carl is in serious trouble for using excessive force. In real life, he would be looking at about 5 to 10 years in most states if he gets convicted.
What Makes A Will Legal?
Is It Worth Money To Purchase &Quot;Online&Quot; Will Kits Or Is The Legitimacy Of A Will Based On It Being Witnessed And Notarized?
Note that any beneficiary designations on your accounts will override anything in a will. It is extremely important that you go over your checking/savings, brokerage, 401K, etc.
We did our own will for free.
I went to the library (bookstores also have it) and found a book called
Quicken Wills and Trusts.
It had a cd in it with forms you could fill out and print.
I read the book. Got smart, then filled out the forms.
Took them along with a witness back to the library to get them notorized for free.
Went to walmart to buy a $19 fire proof box. Leave the key in the box. Don't hide it.
Told family that I kept the box in the closet with will papers.
IF you have real assets, please consult a professional.
But... reading the book will give you an idea of what you want
And it could save you time and money at a lawyers office.
All we had besides accounts was a house and a couple of cars (nothing serious) enough to make it worthwhile paying $1,000 to $3,000 for a lawyer to draw up a will.
What Are Some Of The Differences Between A Criminal Trial And A Civil Trial?
Why Do We Have Different Standards In A Civil Law Case Vs. A Criminal Law Case?
Civil (tort) laws other wise known as non criminal law.
In civil law, a private party (e.g., a corporation or individual person) files the lawsuit and becomes the plaintiff. In criminal law, the litigation is always filed by the government, who is called the prosecution.
