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.

I Need Some Free Legal Advice.?
In the UK you can get free legal advice at the Citizens' Advice Bureau, this is mainly with less serious legal issues such as consumer affairs, noisy neighbours etc.
Most solicitors will give you 30 minutes' free consulation with them so you can then know whether or not it's the right thing to proceed with whatever legal action you want to take.
What'S The Difference Between An Attorney, Paralegal, And Lawyer?? (No This Isnt A Joke, Sorry.)?
I Just Dont Know The Difference Between These Three.
Attorney and Lawyer are the same. After graduating from college, they must be accepted into a Law School, and upon graduation pass a State Bar Exam in each state they will practice law in.
A Paralegal is a person trained in legal research and practices, however it is illegal for them to solicit or practice law, and they can not represent "clients" in a Court of Law. Why aren't the folks that advertise for "cheap Paralegal divorces..." getting in trouble? They are selling "legal typing services"
Will Law Firms Hire An Attorney As A Paralegal Or Legal Assistant?
I Graduated With Honors From A Top Tier Law School A Few Years Ago And Passed The Bar On The First Attempt. However, For Whatever Reason (Maybe The Economy), I Have Yet To Secure A Full-Time, Permanent Position As An Attorney. My Loans Are Accruing Interest, And I Have No Benefits.
I Have Applied For Numerous Non-Legal Positions; However, I Can Never Get An Interview (Perhaps I'M Over-Qualified Or They Feel There Will Be A Lack Of Commitment). I Have Even Considered &Quot;Dumbing Down&Quot; My Resume To Just Show My Undergraduate Degree. The Problem Is That I Would Have Several Years Of Unexplained Time.
However, I Really Do Want To Practice Law And Remain In The Field Of Law. Consequently, Another Thought That Has Crossed My Mind Is To Work As A Paralegal Or Legal Assistant. I Would Get Paid More Than I Am Making Now, And I Would Have Benefits. Most Importantly, I Would Still Obtain Some Sort Of Legal Experience (Issue Spotting, Research And Writing). I Could Work As A Paralegal Or Assistant Until I Find An Attorney Position, Or The Position Could Get My Foot In The Door Into That Particular Firm.
Any Thoughts Or Advice? Also, How Could I Convince A Recruiting Partner To Hire An Attorney As A Paralegal Or Legal Assistant?
Thank You In Advance!
Been there, done that. Dumbed down the resume and left off the JD. It did get me a job, but not in law.
I practiced law for a number of years and I am now working as a paralegal. But probably because I did solo practice and handled everything, they figured I knew the paralegal part of things. That's the problem with law school, you learn to think like a lawyer, but you don't learn how to practice law.
You can certainly apply for the jobs. My small family firm was very excited that I had been to law school. It also helped that I'm a pro at medical issues.
I suggest you learn Spanish. It will make you more employable as a paralegal and even as a lawyer.
If it makes you feel better, when I got out of law school, unemployment was 10% and even our valedictorian had trouble getting a job. There's a lot of competition.
While you are waiting, try volunteering at Victim/Witness Assistance programs, Legal Aid, or other low cost legal programs. Then you have real experience to put on a resume.
To convince a partner, tell them you want to understand all aspects of law and working as a paralegal will help you know the big picture. Tell them you hope to gain invaluable experience and that you hope to move up through the firm.
The big concern, if it's a small firm, is that you will leave when you get enough background to get a job as a lawyer. I'm not licensed in my current state, so they don't have that concern.
Edit: I'm not earning pauper's wages, I'm the highest paid paralegal on staff and started as the highest. I'm no disbarred, I'm just licensed in another state. Like someone else mentioned, there's no reciprocity between my states and I also don't care to practice law any more.
Attorney For Child Support In Las Vegas?
Anybody Knows Any Good Attorney For Child Support In Las Vegas?
I found a website that lets you post a question to their attorneys for free. You'll get up to 4 responses by email. Go to www.lawguru.com, select your state and the category of law.
You do need to act pretty fast though because it gets twice as hard to enforce child support actions once he leaves the state. I know 'cause I was in GA and my ex moved to TX and the state couldn't do a darn thing for me.
I finally had to use a private collection agency to enforce it. They had lawyers standing by to sue him for it. They took a third but it was better to get something after 17 years of zero. I used www.childsupportrecovery.com. They could be useful if he gets ordered to pay and then doesn't. Save the info for later on if you need it.
Also, look for a single mom support group in your area. They are a wealth of resources and assistance!
Looking For Attorney To Sue Car Dealership Who Sold Me Non Existed Product?
What Kind Of Lawyer Do I Need To Sue Car Dealer Who Sold Me Non Existed Product And Messed With My Car? Also Not Getting It Done On Promise Date And Time! Please Help Me.
Sorry to hear...
The backup camera thing is no big deal. I would have asked for a refund. Then, it would be up to you to try them again later or go to another place that specializes in aftermarket add-ons. They may not have offered you a refund, but it seems you didn't demand one and they were willing to make things right, one way or another. No case there. No damage to you.
The body repair to a brand new vehicle is unfortunate and decreases the value of the car. You should have demanded to see and photgraph the damage and a police report could have been fiiled. There was a collision involved. They also owe you car rental for any additional days you were without your car due to the collision.
They may try to convince you that you have no case in court. That's irrelevant. If you take them to court, they'll need to pay a lawyer. They'd be better off paying you a little less. Know this, don't get angry or emotional, but never back down from your position. Even if the argument can't be resolved on that visit, stay calm and don't back down. Tell them we're going to need to get this resolved eventually. Talk to them again later or ask how you can contact the owner, etc...
They would definitely bring a lawyer to court and you would definitely lose without one. They owe you at least a thousand dollars because a repaired car body is not as good as new. But, you did not properly collect information and a lawyer would probably charge you as much as you won in court anyway.... if you won. Also, the law is a fuzzy on repairing the car being good enough, even if it was brand new. But, in reality, they owe you something and they know it.
You may be able to get your backup camera for free or with a nice discount if you start talking about the car no longer being as new or going to court, but that's probably the best you're going to do, unfortunately. Without being able to show a photo of the damage and describing exactly how it was repaired, you have little chance of winning if you actually go to court. Your best shot is to bluff and try to get that backup cam for free. Don't be overly aggressive and anger them, but stay calm and sure of the fact they owe you something and you both know it. Stay polite, even kind, but never back down from that position.
You could also demand some car rental money for any additional days in the shop due to the collision... or have them add that to your back-up cam discount. You could ask things like who hit your car and who is their insurance company. Their insurance would be responsible for your car rental expenses due to the collision and any extra days in the shop. If they won't tell you who hit your car, tell them you'll have to call the police and get to the bottom of this then. If they want to take care of things for their employee, without insurance being involved or cover the employee under their insurance... Then, tell them you feel for them and that's fine with you, but kindly pay up or give you the number to their insurance company. Otherwise, you'll have to file a police report about this collision and try to figure out who's responsible for your car rental.
