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.

Can You Be A Prosecuting And Defense Attorney?
Not In The Same Case, Of Course! Lol (Although That Would Be Interesting)
I'Ve Been Watching A Lot Of Pheonix Wright (Not Playing, Because I'M Poor) Games Lately, And I'Ve Just Been Wondering If You Could Have Both Jobs. Ie. Sometimes You Defend And Other Times You Prosecute.
Sorry If This Is A Weird Question, This Is What I Think About.
It would be impossible to be both a prosecutor and defense attorney in the same jurisdiction at the same time. Ethical obligations would not allow it. As a prosecutor you would be privy to information that a defense attorney would not normally be privy to, and vice versa.
Generally, being a prosecutor is a full time job that would not allow you to be a defense attorney as well. However, there are part-time prosecutor positions that afford attorney's the opportunity to do private work on the side. Most often, those part time prosecutors practice civil law as well (ex. wills, estates, elder law, etc.).
It is conceivable that one could be a part time prosecutor in one jurisdiction and do some criminal defense work in another jurisdiction. I guess one could work part time as a US attorney, prosecuting federal crimes and still do some private criminal defense at the local level, for example.
Ok, I Was Arrested On October 3Rd For Domectic Violence And Possesion Of Analogues, The Analogue Was Xanax, Which Was Given To Me By My Mother For A Panic Attack, But The Police Took Me In For That, Which Is Understandable Due To It Not Being My Prescription, Because Mine Ran Out And Wasn't Filled Yet, But The Domesti Violence Was For Me Pushing My Father A Month Before, The Officers Asked If I Ever Done Anything And My Father Just Said He Pushed Me, And Said It Was A Month Prior, But They Still Arrested Me For It, Is It Legal To Do So? Or What? I'm Now On Probation For A Year, Pleaded No Contest For The Possession, Which Was Dropped To Attempted Possesion And Plead Guilty To The Domestic, Hich Will Now Remain On My Record, Any Help To Resolve This And Possibly Have It Removed Would Be Greatful.
Well, it is a little too late to figure out what you can do now as you've already plead and you're on probation. They can arrest for a push or a shove a month prior, but it's not typical unless your dad wanted to press charges. (At least that's what I've experienced here in CA-- there needs to be visible proof something happened like bruises or scratches.) You should talk to a lawyer about the possibility of getting your record sealed or expunged; if you don't currently have one, you can try the Legal Aid Society. Word to the wise-- law enforcement prosecutes elder abuse just as fiercely as child abuse in some areas, and it doesn't have to be physical violence (financial abuse counts as well) so you may want to either improve your relationship with your dad or stay away for a bit.
18Th Century French Divorce Laws...?
If A French Couple Got Divorced In The Early 18Th Century, Would Their Children Still Be Legitimate? What Would Happen If The Woman Remarried But Then Divorced Again And Remarried Her First Ex-Husband?
Since Catholicism was the major religion in France in the early 1700's, there was, technically, no such thing as divorce; the best a couple could hope for was an annulment, which was based on the premise that there was some impediment at the time the marriage took place and therefore wasn't a real marriage to begin with.
Grounds for annulment included, but were not limited to, impotence on the part of the husband, non-consummation of the marriage, and the old standby, beloved by royalty and nobility since the Middle Ages, consaguinity, which meant that the couple were too closely related by blood for the marriage to be valid. This last option was quite elastic; Eleanor of Aquitaine secured her divorce from Louis VII of France on these grounds, then promptly turned around and married Henry II of England, to whom she was even more closely related by blood.
Annulment dissolved the marriage (or, rather, ended what was considered an invalid marriage and thus no real marriage to start with--yeah, it's complicated, I know), but, unfortunately, it also rendered any children of the said marriage illegitimate. Since the grounds for the annulment claimed, in most cases, too close a blood relationship between husband and wife, they wouldn't be remarrying at all.
Now, under the (much) later Napleonic Code, which was based on Roman rather than Frankish and church law, divorce became much easier. Children of divorced parents weren't tarred with the brush of illegitimacy, and if a couple chose to remarry following an intervening marriage on the part of either party, I don't think anyone particularly cared. It might have been considered bad form socially, but to the best of my knowledge, there were no legal penalties attached to such a thing.

Okay First Off Im 16,I Live In Ohio. Do Not Judge Me, I Really Really Need Help
Just Yesterday I Went To Cvs And Stole A Bottle Of Vodka, Then I Went To Giant Eagle And Stole Cough Syrup, Then I Went To Macys And Stole Some Candy. Then My Friend And I Went Into The Mall Bathroom And Ate It And Drank Some Vodka. The Lady From Macys Came In And Told Me That She Saw Us On Camera And Told Us To Come Back To The Back Room So She Can Question Us. So I Did, She Emptied Our Bag And Saw That We Had A Bottle, And That We Were Intoxicated, And That We Had Un Used Cough Syrup. Along With A Few Chocolate Bars. We Only Stole About 10 Dollars Worth Of Things From Macys. And She Gave Me The Civil Demand Notice And Told Us To Pay 200 Dollars.I Didnt Really Think That Was Neccesary Tho. So The Cops Came Took Us To The Station And Verbally Announced That We Were Under Arrest. He Did Not Read Us Our Rights , And Put Me Into A Jail Cell. What I Want To Know Is, Can I Screw Them Over For Not Reading Us Our Rights? And For The Civil Demand, We Didnt Steal Enough To Have To Pay 200 Dollars. Can You Please Help Me? I Need A Lawyers Assistance Please!
you are a damn IDIOT, that is NOT being judgmental that is stating a fact, maybe a bit harsh but a fact none-the-less........
you are a thief, you got caught, the $200.00 is NOTHING compared to what they could have demanded in restitution... now you will pay court cost, a fine, restitution, will be required to do a class, possibly get counseling, and will do community service.... the fine, cost and restitution will be closer to $1000.00 than to the $200.00... how much you stole is irrelevant, if you are caught shoplifting a 5 cent piece of bubblegum they could demand just as much.
then you are going to get hit with court cost, fine, counseling, alcohol training, community service, and inability to get a drivers license until you are 18 due to the underage-drinking charge that is going to be coming along... another $1500.00 to $2000.00....
you are absolutely correct you do need a lawyers assistance. that is going to cost you (or your family) another $1000.00 to $2000.00.....
you have been watching too much TV, the police are NOT required to give you your Miranda Rights in the situation you have described....
you can NOT screw the police over, however you have screwed yourself and your family over, as well as costing them the better part of $5000.00.
Social Services Laws.?
Is There A Ny State Law That States That A Person Cannot Allow Someone Else To Put Their Money In A Bank Account?
A Friend Of Mine, Was Unable To Get Their Own Bank Account, And My Other Friend Who Is On Social Services Allowed Them To Put Their Money In Their Account So That It Would Be In A Safe Place. None Of That Money Was Theirs.
A Question Came Up From Social Services And It Was Clearly Explained That This Money Was Not The Person'S Who Was On Social Services. A Letter Was Even Sent To Them And Everything Was Resolved. So They Thought.
About 4 Months Later, The Person Got A Letter From Social Services Stating That They Were Being Investigated. They Called Them Up To Find Out Why And They Said It Was Because Of The Bank Account. Is There Any Law That Says A Person Is Now Allowed To Put Money In Someone Else'S Account If They Agree To It?
It is not illegal but it is foolish. The person receiving social services must prove their income, so your friend must be able to prove that the money was not hers. Anyone receiving social services should know that their bank accounts will be checked and any question must be answered.
But, it is not illegal unless it was done for the purpose of hiding money for the other party.
I Dont Have A Job And Need Help With Legal Advice. Where Do I Turn As A Resident Alian?
You need legal advice. you are also a Resident Alien.
It depends on the advice sought. If you live in a metropolitan area, one can usually find legal aid in clinic types places. Again you question is so GLOBAL that it is hard to answer. You should re-frame your question or give additional details. (is it criminal, family court, tenant-landlors laws, what?)
