4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To When you want a legal representative for any reason, you must work closely with them in order to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Listed here are four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're going to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they need to help them win. 3. Show Up Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, every time. In reality, because you may want to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in any type of crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you simply both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

What Is Considered A Good Personal Injury Settlement?
This Was For Injury From A Car Accident In Illinois. I Was Once Told That A Good Settlement Was 1.5X Your Medical Bills. I'M Looking For An &Quot;Adaptable&Quot; Estimate Like The One Above As The Amount Of Injury Can Vary Greatly And The Medical Bills Are A Good Indication Of That.
There is no magic formula for settlement because the value of a settlement is entirely subjective. If you simply take as a rigid formula 1.5 times the medical bills, you might be overlooking other possible avenues of damage calculation. This is emphasized by the fact that if the defendant is willing to settle for 1.5 times your medical bills, you are obviously overlooking some possible recovery (i.e. the defendant only settles if they think they are getting a good deal...so you might be short changing yourself if the defendant is eager to accept 1.5 times the medical bills).
Factors to consider in settlement: possibility of recovery at trail, amount of potential trial recovery, need for the money (willing to take lesser amount now or potential greater amount later), desire to end the litigation early...None of these concerns are adeqquately accounted for in a rigid formula, yet they greatly affect the settlement value of a case.
Looking For Legal Advice From Lawyers?
I Worked For A Company As A Sub-Contractor. They Work For Banks Doing Property Preservation Services.They Owe My Company More Than 10,000 Dollars And Refuse To Pay It All. The First Check They Sent Was Not Endorsed, The Second One Is Not The Right Amount And Has Omissions And The Third One Has Never Arrived. They Have Put My Business Through Financial Hardship As Well As The People Who Work For Me. What Should I Do. I Know I Should Sue Them But For What? Breach Of Contract? Fraud? I Want To Be Compensated For My Losses. Not Only That But I Have Looked Them Up Online And They Have A Lot More Victims Than Me! Help!
Also Please Do Not Comment If You Don'T Have Anything Useful To Tell ( You Know Who You Are). Sorry This Is For People Who Post Their Own Soapbox Opinions I Have Seen One To Many Times. Thanks
It sounds like a garden variety breach of contract claim. There is also probably a violation of your states consumer protection statute, it depends on state law, in my state you can bring consumer to business claims and you can bring business to business claims. The good thing about these statutes is they allow for treble damages and attorney fees. If you did work on the houses, you might be able to put a mechanic's lien on the house. You probably need an attorney to bring a lawsuit, this can be costly. Sometimes a lawyer can resolve the matter cheaply with a few calls and maybe a demand letter. Some lawyers, not all, may take your case if you pay costs and they get a contingency. Good Luck

Does your kids want to see him? I know it sounds like too little too late but sometimes men just need a wake up call and wants to actually be a father to his kids. I would talk to him first find out what his intentions are.

Child Visitation Question..?
I Am The Non Custodial Parent Of A 6 Yr Old Girl. I Have Midweek Visitation Tue And Thu And Every Other Fri/Sat/Sun. I Have Never Missed A Child Support Payment. This Week My Daughter Has Been Ill With The Flu. My Ex Is Demanding That I Miss Work. I Am A Manager Of A Trucking Co About 100 Miles Away From Her And It Is Very Difficult To Just Leave On A Whim. She Is Threatening Me In Various Ways Such As Court And Denying My Visitation. Since She Is The Custodial Parent Is It Her Responsibility To Handle The Time Off When My Daughter Is Sick? Can She Deny Me Visitation Because My Daughter Is Sick?
A sick child shouldn't be taken out, but you could have offered to pay for a sitter her her. There are sick child centers that will watch them in most major cities.
If she gives you any problems with your visitation, here's what to do.
For 20 years I've worked with divorced and single fathers
Part of the problem with getting visitation enforced is knowing what to do to prove your case, and how to remind the judge of their responsibilities. Let me start with the judge.
Always take people with you to court who are not there to testify. Make sure they are sitting where the judge can see them, each equipped with a tablet and pen to take notes. It’s best to use a Court Watch Form designed for this purpose. I have one in the manual at Dads House.
If the judge is not doing his job, using the info from this form, he/her sanctioned and/or removed from the case. You file a complaint with the State Supreme Court at your state capital.
It’s most important that you keep a daily journal of all your activities. There does not need to be any violence for a claim of violence to be filed. She gets a restraining order because she fears him because she has been preventing him from seeing her child. A restraining order can be filed up to a year after a supposed even in most states. With the journal, you can look back and see what you were doing that day and who were witnesses to it, such as being 30 miles away, as was the case with one of my members. Please note that when the mother is unsuccessful in a false allegation og domestic violence, within two years she will progress to child abuse and child sexual abuse allegations.
Many think that all the courts are rigged against dads, but in reality, it is more about attorneys unwilling or lacking the knowledge to truly fight for the father's rights. This is why it is important to learn how to interview and hire the right attorney. It is also important to do as much of the leg work on your own and not pay the attorney to do it.
If you are being denied access, write her a letter notifying her of intent to exercise visitation rights on the specific date as laid out in your order. Make two copies, and sign all three. Mail two of them, one certified and one with Delivery Confirmation (75¢ + postage). If she rejects the one, she still receives the other. If the certified letter comes back, file it unopened. By use of an internet connection, you can print out the Confirmation of Delivery for the other letter.
When you show up, bring witnesses. Do not enter her place alone. If you can record, have someone video record from the car. Check the site below to see if it is illegal to record audio and/or video without the mother knowing. If her state does not have a law either way, than it defaults to the federal ruling, which says one person in a conversation, must know they are being recorded. THAT’S YOU!
In Missouri, it is specifically legal, while in Kansas there is no mention either way. With two different states, if one has a law against it, than you can record phone calls that originated in the state where it’s legal. If it’s legal in her state, than when she calls you, than you can record. I’ve heard of cases where the father lives just across the state line, crossing the state line than calling the mother on his cell phone and recording it.
Now, you can’t just record, you also have to transcribe the conversations your daily journal.
One complaint is that the kids won’t come, but that is likely to be a symptom of Parental Alienation Syndrome.
If you want to learn how to do all this, go to Dads House in Yahoo Groups. There is an educational manual in the file section that can teach you what you need to know. When you sign up, you will receive a link to download the manual in PDF format.
Take the time to learn what you can and should do.
Bird Nest Custody
Lobby Arm of the Fathers Movement
Now, if you want one way to make things less comfortable for her violating the court orders, get a bunch of friends to go picket her home and job. Stay on the public access, unless she works for the government. In those cases you can picket right up near the front door. It can be the most fun you ever had.

I would contact someone with the State Bar of Wisconsin. The State Bar of Wisconsin actually has a very good website regarding custody. You should research there, and if you have questions, contact the state directly and ask them your question. They should have people to help you. The State Bar's website answering your questions about custody is located here:
