4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you really need a legal professional for any excuse, you must work closely along with them in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Allow me to share 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 - regardless of what information you're likely to reveal directly to them. Privilege means anything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most especially information the other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they should enable them to win. 3. Appear Early For Many Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are promptly, every time. The truth is, because you might need to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in just about any crime, it's important in order to convince the legal court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. As an example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

What Criminal Charge Is She Facing?
So A Couple Weeks Ago My Friend Was Arrested For Theft. The Story As I Know It Is A Friend Of Hers Robbed Someone. Packed Things In A Bag And In Pockets Then Got In My Friends Car. My Friend And Her Fiance Claim They Knew Nothing Until After The Fact. They All Ended Up Arrested For Theft. The Police Told Her If She Worked With Them They Would Lower The Charge To Being An Accessory. Also A Bowl With Week Res Was Found Along With A Bong. She Is In Md. What Kind Of Charges Would She Be Facing And What The Punishment For That.
In MD, residue of marijuana is still Possession of Marijuana, however weak, and the Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (the bong) get grouped together in that charge, both misdemeanors, probation at most unless she has a history.
The rest of your question is a little harder because of what 'robbed someone' means. It sounds like you are describing more of a "burglary". That is that dude entered someplace he wasn't supposed to be without permission and stole items belonging to someone else. Pretty large felony and hes facing 5-20 depending on whether someone was home or he was armed. Your friend has a slightly better chance of saying they didn't know what was going on, but it really looks like a 'getaway driver' scenario to me...and a jury as well.
Now if dude actually "robbed" someone, that is taking property directly from a persons immediate control through force, fear, stealth, or threat of violence while armed or unarmed, it will be harder for you friend to protest her innocence. You can't really be sitting in a car watching someone get robbed and not know whats going on, much less driving away with the robber and saying, "What? It all looked innocent to me!" If that was the case, shes an accomplice meaning she deserves the same sentence as the guy who went hands on to do the crime. Not good, that's also a felony, with 5-20 depending on weapons or injury to victim.
If she's really lucky, the dude "just" broke into a car or took something from a place where he was legally allowed to be, and is only being charged with theft. Theft is taking property that is not in someones immediate control without right with the intent of depriving the lawful owner of that same property.
Depending on the dollar amount of the property taken, it can be a misdemeanor or a felony and your friend has a fair chance of protesting her innocence.
All that being said, years of experience tells me that this crime was done in order to obtain drugs, or to steal property to sell for drug money and your friend and her fiance were in on the whole thing or had a good idea of what the dude they were giving a ride too was up too. They have any money problems? Have they started acting a little different or gotten a new contact? Weed is whatever, but if they have started messing with something harder, it might have grabbed onto them. If they are going this messed up for weed money alone, I don't see there relationship outlasting their drug habit.
If your friend has a chance of turning out alright, tell her and her fiance to cooperate and help the police nail the main guy and they should be able to get probation. Watch yourself around her, she's not telling you the whole truth either.
I Need Help Finding A Lawyer!?
Okay As Of Last Year My Mother Was Hit By A Car...And Killed. The Kid Who Was Driving The Car 19Yr Old In A Bmw ... Struck Her. The Street Lights Were Not Working Where The Accident Happened. There Was Skid Marks Down The Road, She Was Thrown 25+ Feet From The Site Where She Was Hit. The Police Let The Kid Off Free, No Tickets Nothing. But As Of Yesterday, They Would Not Let Me Get The Police Report. I Was Told That An Attorney Would Be The Only Person Available To Get It.
My Grandparents Had To Pay $19,000 For Her Funeral Expenses. Shouldnt The Insurance Have Covered It?
Anyways Im Located In Connecticut. I'M Not Sure What Kind Of Lawyer I Would Need To Find. Im Looking Within The Watertown/Waterbury/Naugatuck ... And Surrounding Areas. Please Help Me!!! I Really Would Like Justice. Im Not Money Hungry, I Just Want My Grandparents To Get Their Money Back, Im Not Trying To Be Selfish!
E-mail or write to the lawyer referral program of the county bar association where you're looking. Also talk to the Legal Aid office there. It could be where you are, but better where the accident was. Remember that, as a rule, you have to sue where the defendant is located, and the lawyer has to be admitted to the bar in that state. Are you in CT but the accident happened in NY?
You will need a tort lawyer - wrongful death. There may also be some official misconduct involved - it looks suspicious that the police let the kid off without any charges, and that they refused to give you the report. Such reports are public records, and there is a right, but never a requirement that you have a lawyer. Don't believe anyone who tells you anything different. Are the kid's parents important? Judging by the car, at least rich. Brace yourself for an uphill battle.
You can try to obtain a copy of the police report by writing to the town clerk. You can also try to obtain any records of criminal charges, or their absence, from the municipal court, and from the criminal part or division of the county court. There may be a charge for copying.

A Public Defender IS a lawyer. They work for the state (or county) and are assigned to defend criminal defendants who cannot afford an attorney. You may request a Public Defender at your arraignment (1st court hearing) & if you qualify, one will be appointed.
Otherwise, you can find a criminal defense attorney (that you will have to pay for) through the yellow pages, local business internet searches, your local Bar Association, or word of mouth.
Why Is It So Hard To Find Law Firms To Take On New Cases In Texas
1) Texas recently passed a new law banning recovery of pain and suffering damages of more than $250,000. With actual damages added in, the total that a lawyer could recover for you would be maybe $350,000. If the lawyer gets 30%, that's $105,000. But a lawsuit against a tobacco manufacturer requires investing a lot of firm resources, paying expert witnesses a lot of money, doing serious investigation, and many other expenses. A lawsuit like that can cost a firm a million bucks, easy. So, in Texas, it's no longer profitable to sue for tobacco cases.
2) In states where it is still profitable, it is done through a class action suit. That way, a lawyer can spend that million bucks in research, and recover 200 million in damages, to be spread out among maybe 20-30,000 different plaintiffs. These suits are initiated by lawyers--not by the plaintiffs. You will have a lot of difficulty finding a lawyer anywhere in America who will represent you alone, without any other plaintiffs, in a tobacco case.

Hows The Best Way To Find A Divorce Attorney?? Or Do You Know Any Very Powerfull Ones Around Lacrosse Wisconsin And If You Do Whats Their Name??
Be aware that a divorce attorney is very expensive especially if one drag out the proceedings by requesting a lot of continuances. I ended up paying $40,000 for my divorce which lasted over a course of 4 years because my attorney kept requesting continuances once we appeared in court.
If you select an attorney, ask him/her for a list of clients and call them to find out how the attorney services were to them.
