4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you want a lawyer for any excuse, you need to work closely along with them as a way to win your case. Irrespective of how competent they may be, they're going to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're planning to reveal directly to them. Privilege means everything you say is kept in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - particularly 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 pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they have to enable them to win. 3. Show Up Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, each and every time. In reality, because you may want to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been involved in just about any crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court that you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward enhancing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and included in the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely along with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you need to win your case.

How Do You Report A Lawyer That Commited Fraud?
I'M Involved In A Case Where The Attorney Committed Fraud And I Want To Report Them To The Ca Bar Association. Where And How I Do That?
Confused, filing will be easier than getting much action unless it's an attorney that the BAR doesn't like. There's a brotherhood as is found with doctors, police officers and other highly specialized professions. But here's the skinny for California, There's a link for the complaint form in the source box. The BAR is usually used for unethical behavior. Your first stop may be a meeting with your local district attorney or prosecuting attorney. This is the honcho that will handle the criminal indictments in any particular county. If the target of your wrath IS THE prosecuting attorney, a meeting with your state's Attorney General may be in order as the office of prosecutor is an elected position of the public trust.
You should register a complaint with the State Bar if you believe that your lawyer acted improperly, but not just because there is some disagreement between you, or you believe he or she did a poor job. For such a disagreement, you should pursue alternative methods of settling attorney-client disputes, when available.
All lawyers who practice in California must live up to ethical standards imposed by the California Supreme Court and the state legislature. As an arm of the California Supreme Court, the State Bar investigates and prosecutes complaints against lawyers.
Depending on the seriousness of the offense, a lawyer can be given a warning, put on probation, suspended from practicing law for a period of time, or disbarred - prohibited from practicing law in California.
The bar has limited authority to discipline lawyers for such behavior as rudeness or making a single honest mistake. It is limited by law to complaints about unethical behavior as defined in the Rules of Professional Conduct and/or the State Bar Act.
If you believe that your lawyer acted unethically, you should file a complaint. The complaint form should be mailed to the State Bar at the address indicated. Be sure to follow the instructions.
Some things you should know about filing a complaint:
* There is no fee to file a complaint.
* You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to file a complaint.
* When you register a complaint, you should supply photocopies of any papers, such as letters or canceled checks that relate to the problem.
* The State Bar will send you postcard when your complaint form has been received.
* Your complaint will be input into the computer system and a State Bar lawyer will read it to determine how the complaint will proceed. This process can take from two to three weeks.
* Your complaint will then be assigned to a staff member to conduct an investigation.
* You will be informed of the status of the investigation by a State Bar representative.
* At the end of the investigation you will be informed in writing if your complaint will proceed to prosecution in the State Bar Court or if it will be closed.

Question About Employment Law!?
You Hired Someone To Paint The Outside Your House, Trim Your Bushes And Trees, Plant The Garden, And Stain Your Redwood Deck While You Took An Extended Trip To Florida. While You Were Gone, The Person You Hired Stumbled Over Your Paint And Fell Off The Deck And Broke Their Leg. They Were Unable To Work For 3 Months. They Wanted You To Pay Them Worker'S Compensation For Their Injuries Since They Were Employed By You. If The Guy Correct? Should You Pay For Worker'S Compensation?
worker's compensation does NOT apply under these circumstances,
the injured person was NOT an employee, this is NOT a question about employment law
the painter/handy-person was a contractor working in a home, NOT an employee.
the home owners liability insurance should cover this but it would probably pay very little....
this is why you should only hire contractors who are licensed and insured....
the "guy" is NOT correct, workers compensation would not/does not apply, if the home owners liability insurance did not pay (or had limits) then the "guy" that was injured would have to sue in civil court for lost wages, medical cost, etcetera....
Is There Any Legal Services In Il. That Will Help Me Fight For My Rights As A Father?
I Dont Have Money To Get A Lawyer And My Ex Knows It.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I'm in Oregon but you should do a google search for legal services in your area. We used to have legal aid here but they don't cover that kind of thing anymore. You could also represent yourself and go to court to explain what you need to. If your honest and a good father, try to get as many character witnesses as possible, friends, family (hers even better), but more than that, teachers, daycare providers, coaches and anyone else who has seen you interact with the kids. Unless your unfit you will be awarded visitation and if she's unfit than maybe even custody. I know it's not as easy as it sounds but it's all I have. Good luck to you children really need both parents in their lives if possible. God Bless.
How To Get A Law Passed?
I Want To Get A Law Passed - Natonwide. I Know I Probably Have To Start W/ Just My State But I'M Completely Uneducated In This Area. Where To Start? What To Read?
Links? Personal Experience?
And This Law I Want Passed Is Bc Of Something That Happened To Someone'S Child - I Don'T Want The Anonymity Of That Child To Be Let Out In The Process. Are They Going To What The &Quot;Why&Quot; Answered??
To get a federal law passed, it must be proposed by the House or Senate and signed by the President (or vetoed, and the veto overridden).
Therefore, the only way to get into the system would be by contacting your state's Senator or Representative in Congress. Make sure you have good notes on what you want to accomplish and how it will be done.
State laws need to go through your state's congress (or some states allow laws to be placed on the ballot). The best way to do this would be to contact your local senator or representative and speak with them about what you want. Again, have good notes on what you want to accomplish and how to do it.
State representatives are generally more approachable, so I would start there (on the local level) and try to drum up support.
Good luck in your endeavors.

Can You Plz Defiane Child Abuse?
My Dad Hits Me And My Friends Say That This Is Child Abuse...
( I Also Want To Be A Lawyer So This Is Helpful Thanx )
According to the home schooling mother reference dictionary:
Child abuse can be displayed with a variety of behaviors:
yelling, slapping, hitting, name-calling, swearing, touching, sexual advances, sexual violence, beating, or neglect.
It can be demonstrated in deprivation of food, clothing, shelter, medical care, privacy, or safety.
(There's other stuff, but I'm writing this "off the cuff.")
Although child abuse is rarely "intentional", in my experience there are some indicators that might predict the event:
1.) Parents who are trying to teach their child "once and for all" that a behavior is wrong might become overly aggressive in their training techniques.
2.) Parents who are "over-stressed" by events in their lives and cannot balance the responsibilities of parenting with the other events in their lives.
3.) Parents who lack the skills of patience and communication.
4.) Parents with personality disorders that cause them to want to use, harm, and/or abuse children.
I don't see spanking as a form of child abuse. Many states allow corporal punishment -- even in the schools. I think abuse is expressed through spanking, though, when a parent is trying to make a "once and for all" adjustment in the child's behavior, or when the parent -- out of frustration or anger -- is harsh or cruel or causes physical or emotional damage to the child.
It's impossible to know from your post whether your Dad is slapping your hand or whether he may be hauling off and backhanding you across the room. One might be controlled and appropriate... the other would be assault. In the remaining spectrum are various degrees of behaviors from kind to cruel.
If you feel that you are being treated in an abusive way by ANY adult, you should talk with your school guidance counselor or nurse or contact the police. You have a right to get intervention from professionals where your safety and well-being are concerned. Family relationships can be difficult things to work through. Get advice from someone who can help you.
