4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal representative for any reason, you must work closely using them in order to win your case. Regardless how competent these are, they're likely to need your help. Listed here are four important ways to help your legal team allow 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 anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of all the information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should help them win. 3. Show Up Early For Many Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, whenever. In fact, because you may need to discuss very last minute details or be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any type of crime, it's important in order to prove to a legal court which you both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for a rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

What Is The Title Name Of An Attorney That Handles Foreclosures?
Real estate attorney.
In some states a foreclosure is really a trustee sale and a trustee will handle the process. Many trustees are attorneys.
The easiest way to know who handles the bulk of the deals in your area is to look at the Notices Of Default (NOD) in your county. Each notice will have a contact person for that NOD. Those are the people who are handling the transactions in that area. If a name comes up a lot then you know they handle most of the business.
In California Does A Person Have To Pay Taxes On A (Physical) Personal Injury Settlement?
I'M Not Sure What A 1099 Form Is Or If And When I Will Have To File It For My (Physical Personal Injury) Settlement. Any Info Or Input Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
No, CA conforms to Federal law in this area... compensatory damage money for personal injury is not taxable income. However, punitive damages and lost wages ARE income for both Fed & CA
You should not send a 1099, as that is required of payers, not payees. If you do receive a 1099misc, the amount should be in box 3 NOT box 7. You then show it on 1040 line 21 and then deduct the same amount from AGI on line 36.
Any lost wages should be reported by the payer on form W2 with deductions for Social Sec. & Medicare.

Do You Think I Can Make It Into Something Other Than A Mickey Mouse Law School?
Particularly I Am Interested In Cuny School Of Law, But I Would Love General Feedback.
You will get into some law school, and your thinking is correct. Go to a top (20) law school or don't go at all. There's a good possibility that you will be in a worse financial state than if you never attended law school at all. For further reading, check out these blogs. Admission committees would not share this information with you, and if possible, they would downplay the negative factors such as "oh, you'll be paying back your loans with your first job" or "you can always do something with your law degree other than law." These blogs debunk those myths. Even the Wall Street Journal has stated that "a law degree is not necessarily a license to print money these days."
Please take the time to read every blog. I was exposed to this information before going to law school, but I ignored the advice thinking that I would be one of the few who would succeed. It's been years now since graduating from law school and I am in a position where I would not rather be. Enjoy reading!
How Can I Get An Epipen For My First Aid Kit?
I Would Like To Get An Epipen (Epinephrin Auto-Injector) For My First Aid Kit But I Don'T Have A Prescription. I Am Only Interested In Legal Ways Of Getting One. Perhaps Someone Knows Of A Company In Another Country That Doesn'T Require A Prescription And That Ships To The United States.
I Want One Because I Have Never Been Stung By A Bee And I Don'T Want To Find Out That I'M Allergic While I'M Camping In The Middle Of Nowhere. It Also Seems To Be A Good Thing To Keep Around In Case Someone Unknowingly Eats Shellfish, Peanuts, Etc. And Doesn'T Have Their Own Epipen With Them.
Or, Would It Be Possible For Me To Get A Prescription Because My Father Is Allergic To Bees?
Thanks For Any Help.
Unfortunately, even if you purchase the Epi-Pen through another country, having it in the US without a prescription still makes it illegal. Best thing to do is have allergy tests done at your doctor's office and to put Benadryl in your First Aid Kit for allergic reactions.
If someone you are with has a severe allergy, they should be reminded to bring along their EpiPen. And, also remember that if they do use their EpiPen, it doesn't replace the need to go to the Emergency Room.
"EpiPen is manufactured by DEY L.P. EpiPens are commonly carried by persons with severe allergies and a risk of anaphylactic shock because they can be self-administered and are very fast-acting. In the UK and US, EpiPens are regulated medical devices and require a medical prescription. In Canada, EpiPens may be purchased without a prescription, but they are kept behind pharmacy counters."
"Q: Do I need a prescription to buy EpiPen/EpiPen Jr.?
A: No. EpiPen/EpiPen Jr. is available for purchase without a prescription in Canada. However, it is kept behind the pharmacy counter and a prescription may be required in order to receive reimbursement from certain insurance providers."
Public Lawyer Or Private Lawyer?
Okay I Have A Misdemeanor Case & I'M Undecided If I'M Going To Get My Own Private Lawyer Or Just Go To A Local One. I Mean What Are The Advantages? And Dis Advantages? They Are As Good As The Private Ones Right?
a public lawyer? do you mean public defender? No. those guys roll over and take the easy way out. They do however have a lot of experience with criminal cases. Find a decent lawyer with a lot of criminal law background. If this is your first offense you should be fine. While the public defender is cheap they generally do not spend a great deal of time on your case.
How Do Traffic Defense Attorneys Work Their Craft?
My Son Got A Speeding Ticket (100Mph) On His Way To Las Vegas New Year'S Eve. We Have Prepaid Legal. The Attorney Said, She Knows The Judge And Just Pay Her $140. And The Citation Will Be Dropped, No Record, And Insurance Company Not Notified. She Didn'T Even Want To Hear His Excuse (Actually He Lacked One).
No magic necessary.
Most people that go in are offered a reduced fine, regardless of if they have an attorney or not. The average prosecutor has a very heavy case load. Plea bargaining is cheaper and less time consuming than going to court.
