4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want an attorney at all, you need to work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Here are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal in their mind. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information one other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they should assist them to win. 3. Arrive Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, each time. Actually, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important so as to convince the legal court that you simply both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along 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.

Going To Give My Deposition For A Slip And Fall Case....Any Help, Or Hints??
Speak with your lawyer, not a bunch of strangers! Your lawyer is being paid to represent you (that includes being paid on contingency), so he should earn his money. Your lawyer should have already made arrangements for a deposition preparation session to prepare you for the deposition. In a simple slip and fall case, deposition preparation can take as little as a couple of hours.
More importantly, because we are not your lawyers, anything we tell you here would be discoverable at your deposition! One of the first questions you will be asked after you are sworn in is "what did you do to prepare for your deposition?" and your posting at Yahoo answers should be part of any truthful response.
How Do I Know About My Dui Hearing Date, Police Report After 1St Offense. Any Website For Lawyer Ratings ?
I Was Arrested For 1St Offense Dui After A Single Car Accident In Ca. No Body Was Hurt In It.I Was Taken To Hospital & Released In 2 Hours From There. There Officer Gave Me Pink Receipt For Dui Suspended Licence Which Says I Can Apply For My Dmv Hearing In 10 Days. Can Somebody Tell Me Are There Any Criminal Charges Against Me. I Have Hired A Lawyer Who Says That He Has Filed For My Dmv Hearing But He Did Not Give Me Any Date(Saying It Will Probably Happen In One Month).Also How Can I Know About My Court Hearing Date & My Police Report. My Lawyer Seems To Be Very Secretive Saying I Dont Have To Worry About It & It Will Take About 6 Months.
You can call the county clerk(criminal office) about any court dates.
Yes criminal charges were filed against you. That DMV hearing is probably about you obtaining some kind of restricted license until your case is finalized.
They probably ran a blood test and determined your alcohol level while you were in the hospital. Find out what it was and whether you were over the limit. If you were over the limit the only argument you can make is that the machine/labs were faulty.
Family Law Normal Practice Regarding Communication With Oposing Attorney?
I Will Try And Make This Short And Not A Long Extensive Account Of The Entire Case, However There Are Things I Need To Present In This Question That Requires A Brief Background.
Facts.. The Father Of My Children Has Committed Some Extreme Emotion Abuse, Physical, Sexual Abuse. These Things Came To Light After The Children Refused To See Him
The Non Custodial Parent Is Trying To Reduce Child Support.. Which Is Important To Me But The Least Of My Concerns At The Time. The Non Custodial Is Trying To Enforce Visitation Even Though He Has Not Seen The Kids In Two Years, The Children Would Be In Harms Way Even With Supervised Visitation.. Emotionally.
I Have An Attorney That I Assumed Was Doing The Right Thing.. He Was Playing Defense On What The Opponent Was Going To Pull And See If The Opposing Attorney Was Going To Go Through With A Request For Sexual/Physiological Evaluation Which Would Include A Poly Graph..
There Came A Time Over The Weekend That The Non Custodial Showed Up At A Sporting Event.. Taunting The Children In My Opinion. My Little Ones Age 10 Were Terrified. I Had To Leave The Event. The Non Custodial Was Tape Recording Me And My Children, I Assume To Provoke Me Into Words Spoken That Would Be In His Favor To Make Me Look Bad.. I Didn'T Fall For It.. I Simply Asked The Non Custodial To Leave Due To My Daughters Emotional State By Having Him There.
Today On Monday, I Asked My Attorney To Schedule Emergency Hearing To Cease Visitation.. Which Was In The Works But Taking Some Time For A Regular Hearing With Judge That The Court System Is Back Logged And May Take Time.. And My Attorney Was Dragging His Feat On It.... I Need This Hearing Now To Halt Further Damage To My Kids, At Least Temp Order To Temporary Suspend Visitation.
I Was Very Confused Why My Attorney Today Wanted To Consult The Opposing Attorney To Find Out What The Non Custodial Parent Intentions Were To Be... Why Does An Attorney Confer With Opposing Attorney And Perhaps Let Him Onto Our Strategy? Is This Normal Practice? I Feel That This Contact With The Opposing Attorney Would Alert Him To My Emergency Hearing With Judge.. Not A Restraining Order.Herringboning To Keep The Non Custodial Away From Emotionally Harming The Children Until Final Hearing.. I Am Confused By What Would It Accomplish To Communicate Witt Opposing Attorney L Feel That Would Give Much Info One Our Strategy
What Are The Ethics And Normal Practice For Attorneys To Confer On Each Motion, Each Event Of Dispute.

I Need Legal Thoughts On The Procedure Of Family Law And If It Is Normal To Confer With Opposing Attorney. I Am Not Spiting The Non Custodial.. We Were Never Married And The Kids Have Disclosed Horrifying Events That Have Taken Place. The Kids Are In Therapy.
Please Give A Legal Basis Opposing Side In Communication With The Other Attorney.
Thank You In Advance. Help And Opinions Desperately Needed.
The best advice I can give is to communicate your concerns with your attorney. I would not trust any legal advice I received here, as it's likely from lay people rather than attorneys.

Are Dui Laws Out Of Control?
Is It Just Me, Or Do You Think Duis Are Blown Out Of Proportion And Nothing More Than A Revenue Generating Machine For The City And State Governments?
I Drive All The Time At Levels I Know To Be Above .08. I Drive Better Then Because I’M Much More Cognizant Of My Fellow Drivers, Road Conditions And Speed Limits As I Know The Added Consequences Of Not Adhering To Each. As Such, I’Ve Never Been Pulled Over Or Received A Dui For Driving In An Intoxicated State.
Surely There Should Be Some Reasonable Limit At Which There Should Be A Penalty For Driving Above. But, .08 Is Only Equivalent To Having 3 - 4 Beers For A 150 Lb Man. That’S Nothing. Nothing. The Yappy Woman On Her Cell Phone Or Guy With Blaring His Radio Puts His Fellow Drivers In More Danger. Wouldn’T A More Reasonable Limit Be .12 - .15?
Note: I Don’T Give A Good Goddamn About Your “Friend” Killed By A Drunk Driver Any More Than I Care About Some Stupid Kid Who Played With A Gun And Accidentally Killed His Friend When Formulating An Opinion On Gun Laws. Each Represent A Minority. Considering Either Isn’T Away To Arrive A Reasoned, Thoughtful Conclusion.
Yes and no. I don't think that their is anything wrong with the law as it is. However, I have pulled over a number of people above the legal limit, and most of them are those people who had two glasses of wine or two bottles of beer in an hour. Are they drunk? No, not really, but according to the law they are.
The problem with the law that I do not like, is that our judical system, at least here in Indiana, sends most of these men/women to prison with no treatment. I believe that all drug and alcohol abusers should get at least one chance at rehab. These people have problems that prison isn't going to solve, it only delays it. If they violate the conditions of rehab or are re-arrested for drugs or alcohol, then yes, send them to prison. But I believe they should be sent some place first to help them defeat their problem versus just trying to sweep it under the rug.
This is one of the main reasons that our jails/prisons are overcrowded. And who is paying for it, the taxpayer.
What Is A Reasonable Retainer For A Divorce Attorney?
Going Through Divorce Now. I Have A Top Attorney And He Only Wanted $500 Down (At $175/Hr) But My Wife'S Attorney Wants $2500 In Advance (Then $150/Hr). Does This Seem Fishy To Anyone Else?
Possibly your wife's attorney didn't really want the case, so he made the retainer fee high, so she couldn't afford the initial down payment, or he felt she was not a good "credit risk" depending on her employment, so he is trying to get some of his money up front. In your case, your attorney may feel you are more credible and good for the payments. or....your wife's attorney doesn't have that many clients, and needs the instant cash!
