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.

My Younger Brother Was Fired Todaay From His Job. He Works For A Wholesale Club. On Sunday, A Lady Ran Into His Carts That He Was Pulling Back Into The Store. The Lady Went Into The Store And Says He Hit Her But According To Him There Was No Ivestigation By The Management And On Top Of That They Gave The Lady His Home Number And Information, Told Her To Contact Him For Damages To Her Car And Fired Him. The Lady Is Calling Him At Home Demanding To Speak With Him About The Accident. Of Course Because She Has His Phone Number, She Also Has His Address. What Should He Do? I Know It Is Not Legal To Give Out An Employees Personal Information No Matter What So What Step Should He Take Next?
He should contact an attorney immediately.
Stores are required to carry insurance to cover many things, and those types of accidents should fall under their insurance coverage.
Also, giving out personal information about employees in a situation like this is illegal, and he can, I believe, sue his former employer, or at least the idiot who handed out the information, for doing it.
Many states have laws which allow them to fire an employee for any reason, and your state may fall into that category, in which case he has no legal recourse about getting his job back. However, it sounds like the management at the store is trying to put all the blame and responsibility that they should be shouldering onto him, and that is illegal. They are responsible for what happens on their property.
Was he, by chance, working for the Wal-Mart corporation, like at a Sam's Club? I know they are in a lot of trouble and facing lawsuits in many states for their shoddy treatment of employees, and if that's the case here, it does not surprise me one bit.
An attorney will know how to proceed. He can get the ball rolling by sending a letter to your brother's former employer, telling them that he does not intend to pay for something which is covered by their insurance. An attorney can also help him get the woman off his back. She has absolutely no right to harrass him, but I would imagine that she is just acting on what she was told to do by the managers of the store.
In no case should he even talk with the woman if he can help it. Even an innocent admission of being sorry the accident took place can be used later to show that he felt he was responsible for the accident. He needs to get legal representation, and let the attorney speak for him in all things.
If there is a website for your state's Bar Association, and there should be one somewhere on the internet, it should list resources where he can get help either for free or on a sliding scale so that he doesn't have to fork out hundreds of dollars for help.
I am so sorry he is stuck dealing with this. He did nothing wrong. I hope it all works out okay.
Name The Law Firm Where Prince Obama Achieved A Leadership Role Or The University Where He Tenured?
Has Obama Completed His Us Senate Term?
Has He Achieved A Partnership Position At A Law Firm?
Has Prince Obama Achieve Professional Tenure At Any University As A Teacher?
Why Has He Not Completed Any Professional Careers?
Does This Speak Of His Judgment And Credentials?
Well I'm older than Obama and I haven't completed a professional career I'm happy to say. I'm certain you have done your homework, but let me point out a couple of things. Obama who was not born to privilege not only graduated Harvard Law School and became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review.
The University of Chicago Law School provided him with a fellowship and an office in which to write his first book. If you will go to that university's web site you can read a press-release regarding Obama's tenure there. Obama chose to not pursue a tenure track after teaching Constitutional Law for 12 years (think about it... a President who has actually read the Constitution!).
Obama chose instead to do community work and enter public life. While people seem to be routinely pointing out that McCain "served his country" and Obama did not it should be remembered that when Obama came of age there was no war and would not be one for a while. Obama decided to make a difference right where he was.
He ran the very successful voter registration drive "Project Vote" voter registration drive and in 1993 Obama joined Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a 12-attorney law firm specializing in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development.
To move from a law firm to a career in politics is not like quitting one's job as an astronaut to go clean toilets at the Quicky Mart. It is, in many cases, a promotion of sorts. If he had stayed with the law firm long enough to become full partner then his detractors would say he didn't care about anything but money.
So, just to wrap up, "finishing careers" means dying or retiring.
Becoming President of the United States by graduating Harvard Law School through scholarships and student loans, becoming President of the Harvard Law Review, moving on to lecture on law at a prestigious law school and working with a well-known law firm engaged in community activity and running local voter registration drives, becoming such a well-loved State Senator that you are elected to the U. S. Senate within eight years, then becoming the Democratic nominee for President of the United States after only four years in the US Senate may be "not holding a job" to you, but it sure as heck makes my resume look bad.
My Boyfriend Got Into A Car Accident Two Years Ago At The End Of June. His Exgirlfriend Was In The Car With Him And Got A Concussion. The Car Hydroplaned And Flipped But No Other Cars Were Involved In The Accident. She Never Once Approached Him With Medical Bills Asking Him To Help Them Pay For It And They Havent Spoken In Almost 2 Years.
He Got A Summons Today Stating That This Ex Was Holding A Civil Lawsuit Against Him. He Hasnt Gotten All The Information Yet.
What Are The Possibilities Of The Lawsuit?
How Much Would She Possibly Be Able To Get From Him?
He needs to send it to his insurance company as soon as he is served. The company that insured him at the time of the accident.
It sounds like she waited until the statute of limitations was about to run before suing - which generally means she wasn't hurt too badly.
What typically happens, is that the auto insurer will settle with her, inside your policy limits. He will have to do very little other than answer some questions for the lawyer that the insco hires, and possibly be deposed. If she wants more money than he has insurance for, her own car insurance will likely pay that under Underinsured Motorist coverage. She will not get any money from his insurer unless she signs a full release absolving him for all damages.

Need Help Regarding Felony Charges. Yes Again.?
2 Months Ago, My Former Friend'S Dad Got In An Accident, In Which He Was No Longer Able To Work. He Was No Longer To Pay The Bills And Was 2 Months Behind. I Was Nice, So I Loan My Friend 4000 Dollars. He Promised He Would Have Payed Me Once He Received His Income Return. 1 Month Ago, His Friend Told Me He Had Received His Income Return. Right After, I Tried To Get Ahold Of Him, But To No Avail. He Never Answered My Calls Or Was Never Home. At That Time, I Had Arranged To Pay A Deposit And First Months Rent Of An Apartment My Friends And I Were Getting. I Had 3 Days Left To Pay, But I Still Couldn'T Get Ahold Of Him. I Found Out One Day That He Told His Friend That He Was Never Going To Pay Me. This Is When My 4 Friends And I Decided To Break Into His House To At Least Get Some Stuff Of His. One Night, We Drove To His House. When We Got There, We Decided Not To Do It, So My Friend Just Threw 2 Rocks At The Windows. On The Way Out Of The Neighborhood, We Got Stopped.
Boy, I seem to be on a trail with your questions and you keep giving out more details so I have to clarify my answer again and again (this is my third response).
First if you didn’t make your friend sign any legal documents saying that he owed you money then the debt won’t be provable or considered by the court. Between friends a person’s word should be good enough, but I have found that when money is involved all bets are off.
What ever you wrote in your statement and confessed to will probably stick, you should have waited for a lawyer. Did anyone ask for a lawyer or did you just get frightened and wrote those statements. If you did then and didn’t ask for a lawyer first then those statements will hold in court and they will be very hard to break. A good lawyer can do it, but probably not a lawyer from the Public Defender’s Office. You would need to prove that the police were notified you wanted a lawyer and didn’t get you one, or that the confessions were coerced, forced out of you somehow; the mere threat of jail isn’t enough, you were in jail already. The threat of serving time in a prison isn’t strong enough either since you are considered innocent until proven guilty.
The charge of Organized Crime may not stick, unless any of you are members of a gang. You are friends and your relationship as friends is not a criminal one. A good lawyer can make that charge “go away.”
In your two earlier questions you implied that guns were involved, if there were no guns present then that is good, but if you had a screwdriver the prosecutor can call that a weapon similar to a knife. If the knife has tool marks on it that could seem to make it look like it was sharpened then this question of a weapon or not becomes more important.
Your statements are the key to the case and they will be your doom. What ever you wrote and signed in police custody will be what the final decision will hinge on. If no one in your group was a gang member then you can argue your way past the organized crime charge, but you confessed to the others so a trial is a mere formality. If you can’t break those confessions then you will go to jail on attempted burglary (breaking and entering) and burglary to attempt theft (attempted theft). If you confessed that the group of you planned on breaking in and robbing your former friend then that is a conspiracy, although not necessarily a criminal one. Still it will only increase the threat you posed and that will make the charges seem worse and the probably punishment even worse.
The fact that you were leaving doesn’t matter; the fact that you might have intended something else is also immaterial. You confessed, and what ever you wrote on that confession will stay, it will cause you to lose the case, and it will put you in jail.
You have two options. First find a very good lawyer (read that as expensive) who can break those confessions or plead guilty and try to come off as good boys who planned a crime, but realized that it was wrong and you couldn’t do it. You were wanted to repent for that act so you willingly confessed to the police. I doubt if anyone will believe that you were on your way to turn yourself in, but you could try and suggest that to you lawyer and see what he thinks. You may end up confessing your guilt and “throwing yourself on the mercy of the court.” But, don’t do that until after you talk with a lawyer, in fact don’t say anything until you contact a lawyer. Future communication with your friends can be traced and that can be used to say enforce the idea of a conspiracy, so don’t talk with them. Seek legal advice this minute, I mean right after you read this note.

You don't want to get legal advice over the Internet - THAT is NOT a good idea!!!!
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for Lawyers that handle Family Law matters. ALSO, ask for the phone number for your local Legal Aid office.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Attorney. Do NOT tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Lawyer. When you get the Attorney on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they have FREE, initial consultations?
- How much do they charge?
- Do they accept payments on their accounts?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
