4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need a legal representative for any excuse, you should work closely with them as a way to win your case. No matter how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're likely to reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - most especially information the other side could learn about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should assist them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and prevent wasting the attorney's time, too, by being by the due date, each and every time. Actually, because you might need to discuss last minute details or be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for just about any crime, it's important to be able to convince a legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward increasing your life. As an example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

Anyone Have Some Serious Advice About Law School? I'M Starting Classes In A Couple Of Weeks...?
Please, Only Those Who Have Actually Gone Through Law School, Are Currently Enrolled, Were Massive Failures, Or Have Loved Ones In Law School....
Well, you decided to subject yourself to hell on earth - bullshit bootcamp - OK, first thing to keep in mind is that preparing for class and preparing for exams are two different things - and it is only the latter that gets you a grade - so make sure you prioritize as such. Even if it means not being prepared somethimes in class - it will be embarrasing - but who cares... Also, dont let classes like legal writing screw you grade wise - keep repeating the mantra - its only 2 credits - its only 2 credits ..it is a class thrown in to hose you up time wise - dont let it monopolize all your time - because it will ! dont sacrafice 10 credits for a measly 2 credits of legal writing. Dont beleive ANYTHING you professors say about how to do well in law school- they are a bunch of sociopathic misfits thatget their jollys out of watching darwinism play itself out - law school is truly a place where only the strong, smart and a$$holes survive - use the canned briefs - but use the good ones ( west high court case series if you can get it - when you take constitutional law - try to find the TIger Publishing - audio text tour - its a killer audio brief on the older Constitutional Law cases ). To kick a$$ on preparing for class - try to find the treatise/hornbook for your class topic that is written by your casebook author - they will always be a ying-yang kinda thing IE all the hypos posed in your casebook will be answered in the authors treatise exactly - dont waste time cognetly sucking your pipe while pondering the finer points to the law - you have no time for that -- cut to the chase with canned briefs and hornbooks. FOr example - Joshua Dressler has a hornbook, casebook and sum & substance law lecture CD's on Criminal law and Criminal Procedure - they are a very tidy integrated package. For contracts get the concise hornbook for contracts by Hillman / published by west - it is very excellent - I still use it .TO get you going on examsmanship - get the Flemings exam solution CDs for the various class topics - his criminal law and criminal procedure, contracts and torts CDS are excellent ( www.lawprepare.com ). You might also spring for his baby bar review course - for nothing else but his compendum of baby bar first year solved essay exams - IE it is a mountain of torts, contracts criminal law exams all solved and critiqued - they are on ebay frequently ..dont wince at my suggestions - law school is a complete shakedown financially- dont spare the bucks to get you your edge - hope this helps - good luck - OH - about legal writing - it IS important because this is really what being a lawyer is all about - also you need to have writing samples for future employers - so whenever you have take home assignments concerning memoranda, or injunction briefs, motions - do themfor yourself because you are going to need them when you start interviewing - they wont study them too close - but they want to see a couple .. FINALLY - if you think you are slipping behind after your first semester or year - take a reduced load by one class - just tell the law school you have personal business etc. Also- if you are concerned about the course load - get into the schools part time evening program - alot of full timers do this to benefit from the relaxed load - you can still graduate ontime - just will need to go summers ..
Where Can I Find A Texas Probate Attorney To Work Pro Bono Or On A Contingency?
My Grandfather Passed Away In February This Year. My 5 Yr Old Daughter And I Found Out A Few Weeks Later When We Went To Visit Him.
His Sons Hid His Death From Me And In The Process Cheated Grandpa's Friend And I Out Of Over $60,000! ... I Have Papers That Should Let Me Collect $40,000 Of That But I Can't Find An Affordable Attorney.
I Am To The Point Where I Would Hand Somebody $50 If They Could Just Refer Me To The Right Person! (I Would Give Them More If I Had It - But I Don't)
Call one or more of the law schools in Texas and find out who the Professors are that teach the Probate Law classes. One of them should be able to point you to one of their former students who might be inclined to help you, either pro bono or on contingency. A Professor might also give you some information to help you or might even decide to make your case a "class project".

You make NO SENSE AT ALL. I have no idea what you are trying to say.
The government is only required to provide legal assistance free of charge if you are the defendant in a criminal matter, meaning arrested and charge with a crime. The bar association has nothing to do with it.

Is This Legal Malpractice?
I Had A Slip An Fall Case, With A Court Date For Tomorrow. Today I Went Into My Lawyers Office, And Long Story Short, We And A Disagreement, He Asked Me To Leave His Office, And I Refused Because I Had Not Gotten What I Wanted Yet, He Called The Cops, And Made Me Leave, Giving Me A Letter Saying That He Had Dismissed My Case And There Was No Need For Me To Show Up For Court Tomorrow Morning. Can He Do This? What Can I Do?
You must elaborate on the facts, retain another lawyer, and adjourn your hearing. What did you disagree about? Did the lawyer explain why he dismissed the case? Did you have a lawsuit against the state? Did your lawyer file a timely notice of claim? If you have a claim against your lawyer, you should file a grievance against him with the state bar association. Or, consult another attorney about the situation for a possible malpractice action. All of the work that your attorney has done (assuming he has done work) belongs to you and you are entitled to a copy of it. Request in writing the case file and have it reviewed by the aforementioned parties. As for the court date, you yourself can appear at the court date tommorrow and explain to the judge that you have fired your lawyer and get an adjournment until such time as you are able to employ new counsel.

You could get married without the divorce decree, but you would be committing a felony by telling a lie.
The two areas that you are likely to get caught is:
1. When you apply for the marriage license. If she has to present her internal (Ukrainian) passport, there is a stamp that says she is/was married, and you'll need to prove she was divorced.
2. When you apply for an immigration visa to bring her to whatever country you expect to live in eventually - they will require the divorce decree. You won't get around it, as you need to apply for her visa in Ukraine. They will require a copy of her internal (Ukrainian) passport, and they will question the marriage stamp in it (and I hope she's really divorced, because they enter a stamp there too).
Why don't you follow your Muslim beliefs, and her Christian beliefs, and do things honestly or quit quoting your religion since you apparently don't believe in the beliefs of them anyway.
