4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need an attorney at all, you must work closely using them to be able to win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're going to need your help. Listed below are four important approaches to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're likely to reveal in their mind. Privilege means what 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 continuing and factual account of all information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they have to help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are by the due date, every time. In reality, because you may have to discuss last minute details or even be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with just about any crime, it's important so that you can convince a legal court that you just both regret the actions and they are making strides toward boosting your life. By way of example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and included in the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

Where Can I Find A Good Lawyer?
I Was Unjustly Fired From Walmart And Am Looking To Take This Matter A Step Further. I Need To Know Where I Can Find Good Legal Representation In The Sacramento/San Francisco Area.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle employment law for employEES. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but SOMETIMES in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney.
When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
-Do they give FREE, initial consultations? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
-Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, and belief. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Looking For Good, Affordable Lawyer For Custody Modification In Columbus, Oh?
Has Anyone Had A Good Experience? I Currently Have A Shared Parenting Agreement, But I Am Looking To Change It To A 50/50 Custody. Or, Is It Difficult To Do Yourself??? Thanks In Advance!
In standard family court few people need or have lawyers. How difficult and drawn out the experience will be depends heavily on how difficult and vengeful a parent/parents want to be about custody.
Almost every county court website has Family Court forms you can download, fill out, and file. A hearing date is set after the other parent has been notified. Millions of people do it every day without an attorney because they can't afford one. Just don't go to court until you've made every attempt to work out some arrangements with the mother first. A judge wants to know you aren't wasting the court's time and that you've tried to be reasonable.
As for affordable attorneys... Good ones will charge roughly $200 to $300 per hour and Yahoo is not a legal referral service. Never get referrals off the net because you don't know who is getting paid to promote or give positive reviews. If you still want an attorney then contact your local and state bar associations for referrals.
Do You Think Your Parents Planned Well When They Had You?
Yes Or No?
Personally I Think My Parents Didn'T Raise Me Well, I Raised Myself. But Anyways, Do You Think Your Parents Were Mature Enough When They Had You, Or Planned Well When They Had You? Why Or Why Not?
My parents were married four years before I was born, and spent a lot of time trying to have kids(!) but my mother had a miscarriage before finally successfully having me. I would say I was definitely planned-for, and they did the best they could raising me. I have a brother who is three years younger than I, and a sister who's eight years younger than I. We all get along well and stay in touch regularly. When we were kids, my folks didn't have much money, so there wasn't much emphasis on material things. We were taught to be creative and amuse ourselves. Recycling hadn't officially been invented, but nothing went to waste around our house. If my mother didn't have a use for something, or it had been used enough for her purposes, it became a toy for us, or part of a creative project. Nobody talked about "crafts" in those days, but we were always making stuff out of odds and ends. I think my parents did pretty well, with some help from my grandparents.
In Ca, Wife Fired Because Pregnancy Disabilities Discrimination, Should She File Case To Eeoc Or Lawyer First?
She Received A Letter Stating &Quot;Disability Expired, You Are Not Eligible For Reinstatement&Quot;. She Was On Pregnancy Disabilities After Baby Born, Then Family Leave, Then Ready To Work And Got A Letter Of Termination. We Are Lost And Broke What Should We Do, Please Suggestion???? Her Job Bartender....
Check with the EEOC. In discrimination cases you'll need the EEOC to issue a "right to sue" letter, if they don't pursue the case themselves. Then you may contact a lawyer and file suit.
If you are required to contact the EEOC and do not (or your lawyer doesn't), your case will be dismissed. It's better to be safe than out of luck.
For Experienced Lawyers/Paralegal?
I'M Going To A Graduate School, Which Was Owned By A Group Of People Until The First Six Months Of 2008. During The Summer Break Of That Same Year We Received A Letter That A New Corporation Had Bought The School.
Since Than We Have Changed The Name Of Our School. We Never Signed Anything At All. The Original Fees And Tuitions Were Set For $475/Unit. However, We Were Informed That The New Owner Increased The Cost/Unit To $628/Unit. Nothing Else Was Said, Written, Published,.... (We Enrolled In 2008, Before The School Changed Owner).
After Registering For The Semester Of Fall 2009 The Registrant Added $630 Detailed As &Quot;Institutional Fee.&Quot;
So My Question Is: Can The School, Without Any Written Agreement, Add Any Amount They Want And Charge The Students For That Amount? Again, We Never Signed Anything Nor We Were Ever Informed Of Any Further Charge By Anybody.
if there is no written agreement - sounds like they can probably do it. however there may be an applicable law or statute. so it is worth checking in to.
Dwi In Texas.....Bad Lawyer!?!?
My Brother Received A Dwi Charge Last Year On October 17, 2009. He Turned 23 On October 28Th. He Got Pulled Over On The Highway For Speeding (I Know, Dumbass!) Coming From Our Mother'S Birthday Party. He Went To Jail And We Bailed Him Out The Next Day. My Mom Got Him A Lawyer (Nunn Law Firm). In This Year Of 2010
He Went To Court In March,He Waited 4 Hours And The Lawyer Rescheduled It.
He Went To Court In April, He Waited 3 Hours And The Lawyer Rescheduled It.
He Went To Court In June, He Waited 4 Hours And The Lawyer Rescheduled It.
He Went To Court In July (Todday) He Waited 3 Hours, The Lawyer Didnt Show Up.....
He Called The Law Firm And They Told Him That His Lawyer Had To Go Somewhere And There Was Another Lawyer Covering For Him. He Waited Another 2 Hours....
He Spoke To The Clerk Lady Lol And She Told Him That His Court Date Was Rescheduled To August And That She Didnt Know Why The Law Firm Didn'T Notify Him...
So Obviously This Is A Bullshit *** Lawyer, My Mom Already Paid Him $1,000 Dollars (My Brother Is Disabled).....The Lawyers Actions Show That He Is Not Capable Of Helping My Brother In The Courtroom.
What Can I Do About This? Do You Think He Could Fire Him And Get His Money Back?
We Couldn'T Afford A New Lawyer :/
Call the law firm and ask to speak to a senior partner. Tell him calmly what you told us.
If that doesn't get action, then say "I am preparing a bar complaint against your firm but thought I would ask one last time if you cannot resolve this matter."
If you don't get action then write a complaint and send it to the State Bar asking for your money back and an explanation. LAWYERS HATE BAR COMPLAINTS!!!
