4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want a lawyer for any reason, you must work closely along with them to be able to win your case. No matter how competent they may be, they're gonna need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal directly to them. Privilege means what you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information other side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, each and every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to a legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward enhancing your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Personal Injury Settlement?
Both Me And My Daughter Was In A Accident. I Am Done With Treatment And Ready To Settle, But She Still Need More Treatment. The Insurance Company Sent Me A Form To Sign &Quot;Release Of All Claims&Quot;. I Need To Make Sure This Is Not Closing My Daughter Portion Out. We Both Are Listed Under The Same Claim Number Cause She Is A Minor. Can Anyone Tell Me Is This The Way It Works An If This The Title Of The Claim Form. I Guess The Title Is Freaking Me Out Since It Says All Claims. Although The First Page Of The Coversheet Says. Enclosed Is Our Release Of All Claims In Settlement Of Your Claim. I Just Want To Make Sure I Am Not Signing Off On My Daughter Claims. Any Advice This Is All New To Me.
1 claim number gets assigned to the entire claim. That means all injuries, property damage and every single expense related to that claim has the same claim number. The claim number applies to that entire file.
Your claim is separate from your daughters claim.
Since she is a minor, you will have to sign a parents and guardians release for her. In some states,minors claim has to go before a judge and get court approval.
If the amount on the final release is the same amount you and the adjuster agreed to for the settlement of your claim then it's pretty clear that the final release applies to your claim only.
Call the adjuster up and the adjuster can explain how the minor child's claim will be handled. It can vary by state.
Qualities In A Lawyer?
I Was Thinking About Pursuing The Career Of Being A Lawyer, But Im Not 100%
Here'S Some Qualities That I Have. Are These Interests And Qualities Good For A Lawyer?
-Love History And Politics
-Likes Working Alone /Small Groups
-Persuasive/Never Give In To Other Side
I think you watch too much TV. Being a Lawyer is NOT about: debating, liking to work alone, AND especially never giving in to the other side. If you want to be successful at Law, you need to be able to mediate between two differing sides, AND you need to like to work with people.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. ANd the legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are still in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (>>I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

For Those Who Import Products From Factories In China, Who Carries The Product Liability Insurance?
For Those Who Import Products From Factories In China, Who Carries The Product Liability Insurance? The Factory? The Importer? Both? This Would Cover Manufacturing Defects Only.
You BOTH carry the product liability coverage, but the product liability doesn't cover manufacturing defects. Otherwise, you'd have no incentive to do the job right.
If the actual manufacturer doesn't carry product liability coverage, you'll have a bear of a time buying product liability coverage to cover your product here in the states. ESPECIALLY because of the tendency for China's manufacturers to play fast and loose with the product specs.

Legal Aid Says There Is A Conflict???
I Filed For Custody Of My 2 Girls And Was Attempting To Go Through Legal Aid.. When I Showed Up For My Appt This Morning They Told Me Legal Aid Called And Said They Could Take My Case Cause There Was A Conflict. Can Anyone Tell Me What That Means? My Ex Doesnt Use Legal Aid He Has A Private Attorney So It Cant Be That. Please Help? Does Anyone Know Where Else I Can Get Legal Assistance?
Your chances of getting an unbiased judgement in your area is probably not possible.
Because the whole affair seems to be public knowledge and , your husband has already looked into most areas of legal support in the custody hearing , then again when there was the deaths.
It seems that to obtain justice , the case needs to be heard in a different district ,, Simpkly because you are having trouble finding legal aid in your area.
If they would simply notify you by letter , that there is a conflict of intrest, that would support your desire to move the proceedings to a different community..
In this way the denial of legal aid can become an advantage to you , and not a detriment
Get it in writing, and ask for a referral outside your community,
With a letter of denial in your hand. other doors should open for you.
Evidence, and the collection of documebts are what a judge will be looking at, Gather up as much paperwork as you can, keep a daily diary of your activities in the pursute of justice, If it is written down it carries more weight
You are in the right, and if the system weorks, you will recieve justice, ,
You need to collect data and dates and it should all be usefull to point out what has happened, since, memmory fails us , and emotions run high , but a piece iof paper can be sequenced , and a conclusion drawn.
Legal aid outside of the immediate area may be an avenue to look at. The legal aid dept should be able to referr you to another separate legal aid area, to determine if this is the situation, that wouuld not be any conflict of interest, since they are noty advising you at all just referring you to another attorney for an evaluation.
