4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want a lawyer for any reason, you have to work closely with them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team enable you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means whatever you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most importantly information another side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or be extra ready for the case you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to convince the court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Needing A Great Real Estate Lawyer?
If Anyone Knows Of A Great Real Estate Lawyer Please Let Me Know. I Need Help From A Lawyer Against Our Homeowner'S Association. I Also Live In Boynton Beach, Fl (West Palm Beach). Thank You
You need a trial lawyer with real estate trial experience. Not a real estate lawyer.
To find one, go to the local Court Clerk's Office and CASUALLY ask one of the desk clerks, what trial attorney files a bunch of cases. Or, at the Clerk's office ask to see some cases with homeowner's associations as Defendants. Look at the case files, see who won and the name of the attorney that won.
Go to a big real estate office and ask what trial attorney they use.
Inexpensive Family Lawyers In Houston?
I Am Wanting To Modify My Divorce Decree From 6 Years Ago, Especially The Child Visitation Part. I Am Also Looking To Maybe Gain Custodial Custody Of The Child (Who Is 15) As Of Now, My Ex Wife And I Share Joint Custody.
We Do Not Have A Lot Of Money, And Was Wondering If Anyone Knew Of A Inexpensive Lawyer In The Houston Area, Or One That Takes Payments.
I Have Gone Online, And Looked For Places That Have Legal Aid Services, But Looks Like The Wait Time On That Is Enormous, And We Don'T Have A Lot Of Time.
Thank You In Advance.
The term 'inexpensive lawyer' is an oxymoron. Seriously, though, you might try contacting legal aid. If they can't help financially, they may be able to point you in the right direction. I wish you the best of luck. I recently went through a similar thing in Oklahoma. I know it is difficult. God bless!
Looking For Good Child Custody Lawyer For Father Of Three?

Children Are 5 And Under. Need Good Lawyer Who Can Help Stop Any More Visits From Happening. He Lives In North East Kansas. Does Not Have Much Money For Lawyer. Mother And Boyfriend Under Investigation For Abuse And Both Take Drugs. She Has Threathed To Run With Them (She Was On The Run When He Was Trying To Get Supervised Visits And No One Could Find Her).
Best thing to do is call around and look for lawyers that will accept payment plans. I have attached a link that you can use to search a custody lawyer in Kansas. Look over several websites and make a decision based upon the information presented on their websites. Many times you can find information relating to your particular case thus making that attorney a good fit for your situation.
I Am Looking For A Pro Bono Lawyer For A Civil Matter In Ill. Where Do I Begin My Search?
I Am Looking For A Pro Bono Lawyer In Ill That Deals With Civil Matters (Harassment And Etc.)
Harassment isn't really a civil matter in most circumstances...
Civil lawyers rarely work pro bono, because civil cases generally result in monetary damages, so their fees come from the settlement/award.
Try Illinois Legal Aid. At the very least, they'll be able to refer you to low-cost lawyers at the private bar if your case is not appropriate for legal aid. There's also a ton of legal self-help info on their website.
Is This A Case Of Medical Negligence An Is There An Attorney That Will Sue On My Behalf?
My Grandmother Is 90Yrs Old And Suffers From Dementia. A Few Months Ago My Aunts And Uncles Agreed To Take Shifts In Caring For Her At Her Home. A Few Weeks Afterward They (The Aunts And Uncles) Got Into An Argument About Her (My Grandmother) Care, And One Of Her Children, Presented A False Power Of Attorney, Took Her To A Psychiatric Hospital For The Elderly. Now My Grandmother Had Never Been Violent Or Problematic Before This Indecent, But After One Night There She Was Confused, Violent, And &Quot;Wanted To Go Home.&Quot; When My Mother Found Out About This She Gave The Hospital Her Valid Power Of Attorney And Had Her Released. The Very Night My Grandmother Was Released She Was Still Confused And Violent So My Mother Had No Choice But To Take Her Back To The Hospital. The Next Week My Mother Had A Meeting With One Of The Doctors Of That Hospital (To See About Putting My Grandmother In A Nursing Home). At That Very Meeting The Doctor Told My Mother That My Grandmother &Quot;Would Have To Be At This Hospital For 7 Days, And We Would Have To Put Her On Medication 'Black Labeled' By The Fda.&Quot; After The 7 Days The Doctor Changed His Mind And Wanted To Keep My Grandmother For Another 20 Days. When My Mother Disagreed To His Proposal,L He Presented Her With A Blackmail That If My Grandmother Was Taken From His Care He Would Make It Impossible For Her To Be Admitted To A Nursing Home. Despite What The Doctor Had Said My Mother Took My Grandmother From Under His Care, And Tried To Have Her Admitted To Multiple Nursing Homes. When The Nursing Homes Would Not Admit My Grandmother They Said That She Would Have To Be Readmitted To The Hospital We Had Taken Her From Because Of What The Doctor Had Put In Her Medical File.
(Sorry For The Punctuation).
I believe any attorney can win that case. It is a no brainier. Try to get proof of what he said, even if it means having another meeting with a tape recorder in your pocket.
mnwoman...it is the point that the grandmother came back violent...they don't have good medical care. Many places that deal with the elderly have proof of abuse to patients. Point it you need to loko at it other than just facts but individually
Construction Law - Submittals?
I Work For An Electrical/Low Voltage Contractor. I Am Working On A Project For The City And With Past History With Working With The City, They Have Never Wanted To Own Up To Any Changes And Expect The Contractor To Pay For Everything.
I Recently Submitted A Submittal Package On Light Fixtures And The City Reviewed Them And Approved Them. I Ordered The Material And Had It Stored In Our Warehouse For Installation. 1 Day Before Some 8&Quot; Recessed Trough Fixtures Needed To Be Installed The City Told Me They Wanted Louver Lenses And Not Acrylic. I Told Them This Change Would Come At A Cost, Since Louver Packages Tend To Cost More Per Fixture And They Claimed I Was In The Wrong, Because They Intended For A Louver Fixture Even Though The Submittals They Approved Clearly Displays An Acrylic Lens.
Another Issue That Resulted With The Same Fixtures Is The Length Of Some Of Them. The Fixtures Come In 2', 3', And 4' Sections, Or They Come In 6' And 8' Sections By Combining 2 Fixture Housings. They Claimed In An Addendum Before My Bid Was Due &Quot;The Fixtures Should Fit The Maximum Possible Length According To The Specifications&Quot;, But The Specifications I Received Didn'T Have A Specific Length, Only Said What Wall They Should Be Placed On. I Had 6' And 8' Sections Clearly Displayed In My Package That Was Approved. We Come To Find Out The 8' Section Won'T Fit And They Want 7' (3' And 4' Section) And Are Claiming I Am In The Wrong. On The Other Spectrum, The Distributor Gave My Vendor The Wrong Pricing For These Fixtures And Said They Will Own Up To The Original Mistake, But I Will Have To Purchase Full Priced Fixtures For Any Changes In Work. What Was Originally An 8' Fixture For $300 Would Now Cost $530 For A 7' Fixture.
What I Am Asking Is, How Much Weight Does My Submittal Package Have That I Turned In? The Project Was Only $20K, But The Change From An 8' To 7' Fixture Will Cost $1500 And We Would Take A Huge Loss On The Project. It Seems Wrong That The Contractor Has To Take The Hit When Both The Distributor And Owner Made Very Large Mistakes On This Job.
Any Insight Will Help.
If it was specified, the party falling short of the spec is financially responsible. Your submittal package should have binding language that reflects that concept.
You mention "huge loss", but $1500 may be the cost of securing your future shortlisting in projects with this client, going forward. If I told you that I (as an agent) could *guarantee the successful close* of this deal at the price you had otherwise bid, would you pay me for that service? If no, then the answer is simple:walk away.
I have always padded my bids for municipalities and government projects, especially when I see that they don't have much experience in my specific industry; it is unfortunate that the general "impedance mismatch" between consumer and supplier in these situations incurs a lot of babysitting. The extra compensation makes it more palatable.
