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.

I Need Legal Advice Please?
I Am Looking For Someone To Tell Me What Kind Of Forms To File In A District Court. I Need To Request Discovery And I Need To Petition The Court To Subpoena Other Records That I Know Exist But They Will Not Include In Discovery. I Am A Single Mother Of Three Very Small Children, Lost My Job And Have No Income To Pay An Attorney Otherwise I Would. Been On The Phone For Almost A Week Trying To Reach Free Legal Aid....What A Joke Can'T Even Get An Answer After Spending Countless Hours On Hold. Can Someone Please Tell Me By Telling Me How To Petition The Court To Subpoena Records An How To Request Discovery? This Case Is In A Michigan District Court. Please Do Not Leave Disparaging Remarks As I Can Only Take So Much Before I Lose My Mind. Thanks!
Most district courts have some form of pro se law clerk that should be able to provide you with assistance regarding administrative procedures of the court and might be able to provide you with some guidance on how to proceed with your petition. They cannot provide you with legal advice, only guidance with court procedure so I don't know if that will be helpful enough for you.
I don't know which legal aid programs you have tried to contact but I've included a link below to an online pdf listing of most of the legal aid and service programs recognized by the Michigan State Bar. I don't recommend you insist on speaking with an attorney when you contact them as that may only further delay having your matter addressed. As long as you can schedule an intake meeting, that should be sufficient and all of the personnel there are bound by attorney client privilege, not just the attorneys themselves.
You may also want to try utilizing the pro bono services of one of the six Michigan law schools. I've provided a link below outlining the programs and providing contact information.

Do You Need A Lawyer For First Time Dui?
I Recently Got Charged With Dui In Kentucky, With A Bac Of 0.18.
Is It Necessary To Spend The Extra Money To Get A Lawyer? What Can A Lawyer Do For Me?
I got a DUI with the exact same BAC back in 2006. I live in Arizona. I paid for a lawyer and honestly the only thing she could get knocked down was my jail term from 3 to 2 days. Was it worth it to pay her $400? Not really. She literally was in court with me for 15 min and that was it. I looked up DUI laws in your state
First offense Kentucky DUI Cases are punished as follows:
* Fine: $200.00-$500.00 (plus statutory service fee of $250.00 and other miscellaneous costs.)
* Jail: 48 hours to 30 days. Under Kentucky law for a first offender, either a fine or jail must be imposed.
* Community Service: In lieu of a fine or imprisonment or both, an offender can apply to the judge for permission to enter a community labor program for not less than 48 hours nor more than 30 days.
* License Suspension: For Kentucky residents 21 and over when arrested, a District Judge can impose a license suspension between 30 and 120 days. A hardship license is available if the suspension is more than 30 days. Drivers under 21 will be suspended for 30 days to six months and can have a hardship license. After the license suspension and completion of alcohol treatment, drivers may be reinstated.
* Alcohol and Drug Assessment and Treatment: Ninety days.
Any non-Kentucky driver's home state licensing agency (DMV, DPS, etc.)
The difference between getting a lawyer or not could mean you either paying a fine or going to jail. Since it is such a high BAC (called "extreme" here) I would get a lawyer. At least you're lucky though ,here I got jail AND a $2500 fine. You don't want to spend one more day in jail than you have to. Good luck.
Divorce, Child Custody And Child Support .?
Hi Everyone, Ok So Its A Quite Long Story. My Girlfriend Has A Little Daughter (3Years Old) With Her Ex Husband. She Didn'T Fight For Any Custody Because She Was Scared Of Taking Lawyers And Didn'T Have Any Family Here To Help And Support Her During The Process. So, Her Ex Husband Has The Full Custody He Doesn'T Give Her Any Child Support Or Anything Like That. The Matter Is That The Child Lives In My Place With Me And My Girlfriend, She Is There Almost 24/7 And Its Her Mom That Is Taking Care Of Her.
While She Is Taking Care Of Her Daughter She Cant Have Or Find A Job.. And Still The Ex-Husband Doesn'T Give Any Kind Of Child Support Or Pay For The Room (Rent) Or Anything He Should At Least Put Her In Day Car So The Little Girl Mom Will Be Able To Work And Get Her Own Money... So I Feel Like It Is Very Unfair.
I Have To Go Now, Or I Am Going To Be Late In Class But Do You Think Something Can Be Done With The Law To Fix This ?
Thank You In Advance For Your Answers.
And Sorry For My Grammar Mistake Or Misspellings English Is Not My First Language.
Your girlfriend will not receive any kind of child support as long as the ex has legal custody, no matter how much time the child spends with her. She must go back to court and seek custody if she wants to have the child and be able to seek support payments. (Unless somehow the dad could be convinced to make the exchange without fighting over it) Then it is simple to get the courts to sign off on the new arrangement.
However, if she has to go to court to fight for custody, her living with you could be a black mark against her...because live in arrangements rather than marriage is not nearly as stable...and stability is one of the things the courts want for the child. It is not a moral judgment, but a practical one.
For your and her information, I will list the other factors that a judge must take into consideration when deciding custody.
(1) the wishes of the party or parties as to custody;
(2) the reasonable preference of the child, if the court deems the child to be of sufficient age to express preference;
(3) the child's primary caretaker;
(4) the intimacy of the relationship between each party and the child;
(5) the interaction and interrelationship of the child with a party or parties, siblings, and any other person who may significantly affect the child's best interests;
(6) the child's adjustment to home, school, and community;
(7) the length of time the child has lived in a stable, satisfactory environment and the desirability of maintaining continuity;
(8) the permanence, as a family unit, of the existing or proposed custodial home;
(9) the mental and physical health of all individuals involved; except that
as disability, defined in section 363A.03, of a proposed custodian or the child shall not be determinative of the custody of the child, unless the proposed custodial arrangement is not in the best interest of the child
(10) the capacity and disposition of the parties to give the child love, affection, and guidance, and to continue educating and raising the child in the child's culture, religion, or creed, if any;
(11) the child's cultural background; and
(12) the effect on the child of the actions of an abuser, if related to domestic abuse as defined in section 518B.01, that has occurred between the parents or the parties.
