4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Allow You To If you want an attorney for any excuse, you should work closely along with them in order to win your case. No matter how competent these are, they're planning 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 in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - most importantly information the other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information regarding 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 All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, by being on time, each time. In reality, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any kind of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in 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 need to win your case.

Does Anyone Know Where I Can Find An Affordable Attorney In Nyc?
Speeding Ticket Attorney
You USUALLY don't need an Attorney for traffic court. Dress professionally - be organized (take notes). If you are guilty, it is less expensive to just go ahead and pay the fine and be done with it.
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 Traffic Law. (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, belief, and life experiences. 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.)
Is This Medical Malpractice?
In July Of 2003 I Began To Have Anxiety And Mild Depression, When I Was 19 Years Old. My Mother Took Me To An Md (Family Practice) Who First Stated That I Had Low Levels Of Vitamin B12, So I Went In For 2 Weekly Injections, With Little To No Results. She Then Perscribed Me The Drug Effexor Xr 37.5, Which I Began Taking In August 03. My Depression Symptoms Grew Worse, So I Went Back To Her And She Uped The Dosage. In October 2003 I Made An Attempt On My Own Life, And Spent 3 Days In Icu, 2 Days In A Reg. Hospital Room On Suicide Watch, And Then 7 Days In A Psych Facility And Taken Off Of Effexor All Together. My Depression All But Disappeared, And I Have Not Felt Suicidal Even Once Since. I Actually Left The Psych Hospital Skipping.
The Reason I Worry That This Was Possibly Malpractice Is That The Md Has Also Perscribed Both My Mother And My Grandmother Similar Drugs, With Little Consultation And No Recomendation Of Therapy. Also Effoxor Is Not Recommended To People Under 25
No it's not. I'm sure some type of test (maybe blood test) indicated you had low b12, so he treated you for it. She prescribed you effexor...yes, maybe it is recommended for people above age 25, but I think the key word is recommended. It does not say to try as a last resort to other medications. In fact, if it was prescribed to only people over the age of 25, the pharmacist would have said something. As far as upping the dosage...if the pot of water doesn't boil on the 5 setting on the stove...most people turn it up higher. Often any type of depression medication, or anxiety medication for that matter, can in fact increase suicidal idelations...which is clearly written on every box of medication. WIth your doctor not advising you to go see a therapist, I am wondering where that becomes his fault. You obviously went to him rather than a therapist to get prescribed medication, which is what he did. You had that choice all along as I am sure it is common sense to you, and if not you, your mother and family members would have informed you. You choose medication probably because it is quicker. As far as the insurance company not paying...i don't understand. Most of the time doctors and therapists have to do daily or bi-daily reviews with the insurance company when in a residential setting so you know right there whether the insurance company is going to pay or not. I don't understand why now they are saying they won't pay for it. I will admit, I am biased here as I am a therapist. Too many people file medical malpractice, usually settle out of court, although the medical malpractice insurance still pays for it, which drives insurance rates for providers, me included, through the roof. We raise our rates then people ***** because of how expensive office visits are, then turn around and want to suit again. The last part is obviously my opinion, but I do not think you have grounds for medical malpractice.
Personal Injury: A Sham On Society Or Something Else?
I Participated In A Mock Negotiation In A Law School Exercise. My Client Was A School Board. The Plaintiff Was A School Child Who Was Injured While On School Property. The Case Law I Found Suggested That Unintentional Acts By The School Board In The Ordinary Course Of Conducting Facilities Does Not Become Liable For Student Injuries. There Is A Lot Of Case Law On Governmental Immunity And Then Even More Case Law Specifically Addressing A School'S Liability. All Of The Law Suggests That Students Are In A Position Of Caveat: Student Beware.
My Classmates Disagreed With The Policy Even Though The Law Supports My Position, Without Question. I Found One Case Where A Child Chopped His Hand Off In A Shop-Class Machine, And The School Was Found To Not Be Liable For Anything.
I Think The Policy Is A Good One. Schools Are Not Run For Profit And The Students And Parents Have As Much Of A Duty To Prevent The Children From Being Injured As The Teachers, Staff And Faculty Do. Do You Agree?
In general, I believe that adults should be held responsible for their own actions. But when adults or institutions hurt an adult through negligence or worse, this principle goes for both parties: the persons or institutions inflicting harm should be responsible for their acts.
But, you're talking about children. In our society we do not hold children (and mentally or physically impaired adults) to the same standards as we hold adults. The standard of care required of adults and institutions to whom we entrust our children are -- and should be -- far stricter in cases of real negligence.
Of course, our laws do sometimes go overboard in awarding personal injury awards and punitive damages. Especially in the cased of punitive damages, I believe there need to be far lower limits than apply currently.
Why Are Drunk Driving Laws So Lenient?
Ok So I Live In Michigan. I Read In The News An Article About A Guy Who Isnt Even 21 Years Old (But Over 18) Who Got His Third Conviction For Drinking And Driving And Didnt Even Serve Any Jail Time? Is Our Justice System Just All Talk When It Comes To The Evils Of Drinking+Driving Or What?
What Kinda Punishment Would Be Expected Of Someone Who Does This? Im Not Sure Exactly What Happened To Him.
Drunk Driving laws shouldnt exist at all...
It is already illegal to negligently kill someone with a vehicle..we don't need another law to cover someone who MAY do this..
Maybe we need laws against DWT, driving while tired...
