4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you really need a lawyer at all, you need to work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important ways to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal in their mind. Privilege means anything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know all things in advance - 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 related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the current data they must help them to win. 3. Show Up Early For Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, whenever. Actually, because you might need to discuss last minute details or perhaps be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a great idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any kind of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court that you just both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For instance, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and associated with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together 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.

Generally, you can't sue an employer when it's covered by workers' comp, UNLESS you can show that the employer was negligent.
Call your local Bar Association's lawyer referral service.
Ask for an attorney who does workers comp cases on a contingency basis.
That means that you don't pay the lawyer unless you win.

Can A Divorce Lawyer Fire A Client While The Client Has Other Non Related Criminal Charges Pending?
The Person I'M Askin' About Has A Divorce Lawyer. The Divorce Lawyer Tried Once To Fire The Client Because He Wasn'T Getting Enough Info (Phone Numbers) But They Came To An Agreement, And The Lawyer Stayed.
Friday, 1 Week B4 The Freaking Divorce Hearing, The Lawyer Wants To Fire The Client Because The Retainer Money Is Low. The Client Can Pay Up The Retainer, But The Lawyer Doesn'T Want The Money.
So There'S Ex Parte Friday. The Plan At This Point Is To Bring Plenty Of Cash To Top Up The Retainer To The Hearing, And Then Talk To The Judge, See If He Will Not Let The Lawyer Quit.
Now The Person With The Lawyer (My Family Member) Has Pressing Criminal Charges.. He Doesn'T Even Want His Divorce Lawyer Knowing About The Criminal Charges, But Isn'T That Another Possible Reason The Judge Won'T Remove The Lawyer From The Case?
A lawyer can fire a client anytime he wants and vice versa. Just tell the judge your lawyer quit and you need time to get a new one.
A judge can not tell a lawyer to stay or go. The lawyer is an independent business man.
Question Concerning Fathers Visitation Rights?
Let Me Start Off By Saying I Have Two Boys - 4 And 5 Years Old, From A Previous Relationship. I Have Sole Custody Of Them But Their Father Has Court Ordered Visitation Rights. He Gets Them Every Other Fri. Well, My Boys Had Been Begging Me To Get Them Signed Up For Soccer. To Make Sure That Their Father Wouldnt Interfere With This I Asked Him,&Quot; If I Sign Up The Boys For Soccer Is It Alright If You Just Come To Their Games Saturday Morning And Take Them After That? &Quot; He Agreed. Now As Soon As I Sign Them Up He Says &Quot; Nope Thats Not Going To Fly. Im Coming On My Assigned Day And Time &Quot; He Lives About An Hour Away And The Kids Have To Start Soccer At 8 15 In The Morning. He Also Relies On Rides From Friends Since Hes On His Second Dui Charge. So, He Cant And Will Not Take Them. My Question Is What Can I Do ? If I Just Dont Answer The Door When He Comes Fri, Can I Get In Trouble? Is There Something I Can Get From The Courthouse Or Should I Contact My Lawyer? It Seems Like Such A Big Hassle Even Though All My Kids Want To Do Is Play Soccer. I Don'T Want To Argue With Him And Make Things Difficult. I Told Him He Could Make Up The Time With Them, So Im Not Denying Him From Seeing His Boys. My Kids Have Been Looking Forward To This And I Dont Want Their Dad To Ruin It Just Because He Enjoys Getting Under My Skin. Its Also Court Ordered That He Pays Child Support But He Hasnt Paid In 5 Months Yet I Still Allow Him Visitation. Thanks For The Help :)
No you will not get into trouble, take your sons to soccer. You have made an effort to give the father reasonable visitation time. That is what the court orders when you have full custody. It's not your fault or the children's that the father is a loser with no license. No judge in his right mind would ever side with him over a mother that cares for her children and they want to be involved in sports.
If you ask me the man's a loser and lucky he has any rights at all. The most you'll get is a letter in the mail asking you to make sure he is able to get reasonable parenting time, answer that letter with exactly what you have provided in this question and they will laugh him out of the building.
I hope I helped
People With Knowledge Of Cali Dui Laws....?
My Roommate Just Got A Dui Last Night And I Had To Experience The Chilling 3Am Phone Call.... Anyway, She'S Ok And They Let Me Pick Her Up From The Police Station Instead Of Making Her Spend The Night In Jail. The Thing Is, When She Was 17 Or 18 She Got A Wet & Reckless (She'S 22 Now), She Can'T Remember If She Was A Minor Or Not When She Got It. I'M Thinking If She Was 17 When It Happened It Would Be Wiped Off Her Record & This Will Be Her First & Only Offense, But If Its Still On Her Record, Does Anyone Know The Consequences She Will Face? Will This Count As Her 2Nd Dui? Any Jail Time? She'S Never Been In Trouble With The Law Before Besides Those 2 Times. ...... Please No Rude Comments, I Am Merely Trying To Get Some More Information For Her Until Her Court Date Next Month. Thanks Guys!
Even if she was a minor it is NOT off her record. The idea that your juvenile record disappears all on it's own once you turn 18 is a myth (at least in California). While juvenile records are confidential, unless she petitioned the court to have the record sealed once she turned 18, the record is still there and is still accessible by the prosecutor's office & law enforcement. So yes, anything in her juvenile record can be used as a prior.
However, if she really was charged with a wet & reckless (as opposed to an actual DUI), then it won't count as a prior for DUI purposes. For a first time DUI she will likely be placed on informal probation for a period of 5 years, be sentenced to around 5 days in jail (she can do work alternative instead of actual jail time), and various fines, costs, etc. totaling around $1500-$2000 (plus attorney fees if she hires a private attorney). Depending on what her blood-alcohol level was, this may increase.
Help With Constitutional Law Case!!?
Okay, So I'M In Con Law And For This Oral Thing I Have Been Assigned A Case And Have To Defend It Against Seven Other Students Who Are The &Quot;Court&Quot; All I Front Of The Class. I'M Very Nervous About It Bc I Tend To Be Horrible At Presenting And Gets Easily Nervous.
The Case I Was Assigned Is: Billy Wants To Wear A Shirt With The Confederate Flag On It To School. Should He Be Aloud?
I'M Defending Billy'S Rights So Here'S What I Got.
1.) First Of It Passes The Tinker Test:
-Doesn'T Disrupt Learning.
-Doesn'T Go Against The School Mission. (The School Mission Is Success For Every Student.)
2.) Also I'M Going To Try To Compare It To Another Case Where Students Won The Right To Wear &Quot;Be Happy Not Gay&Quot; Shirts In Response To Day Of Silence. (Some Might Argue That They'Re Total Different Cases, So I'M Worried About That)
3.) It'S The First Amendment. Freedom Of Speech. No Matter How Offensive, It'S Not &Quot;Fighting&Quot; Words, Meaning No Reasonable Average Person Would Go Up To Billy And Be Violent.
So All In All, Do I Have Everything? What Are Your Opinions? Anything That'S Not Bullet Proof And You Can Counter? Any Suggestions? I'M Really Nervous For This Because The Teacher Will Be Part Of The Court And I Have To Be Able To Fight Off His Questions And Defend Billy'S Right. Also, I Can You Suggest Any Similar Cases And What Are You'Re Thoughts?
I take it you are NOT in law school, since you don't know the difference between allowed and aloud.
What makes you think it doesn't disrupt learning? You think a minority kid at that school is going to feel comfortable with a confederate flag? A symbol of the fight for slavery and these days a racist symbol? You think that doesn't go against the school mission? If you are going to defend Billy, you have to respond to those arguments. It is fighting words and free speech in school is not absolute. Or anywhere else for that matter. You can try to argue that it's just a symbol of the south, historical. But you will have to counter that it's often a symbol of racism.
Doing legal work means figuring out the arguments of the other side and coming up with response to those arguments. That's thinking like a lawyer.
