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.

Car Accident - Can I File A Lawsuit?
Last Sunday I Was T-Boned In The Process Of Making A Left Turn Out Of A Driveway, There Was A Passenger In The Car. I Was Told By My Insurance That It’S My Fault For The Time Being, Even Though It’S Been Acknowledged Through Police Reports The Other Driver Was Speeding, On Her Cellphone And Had Time To React Otherwise. There Were No Skid Marks, And Two Bystanders Said She Didn’T Even Attempt To Hit The Brakes.
The process of filing a car accident lawsuit takes longer than most people realize but motorists should know that each state has its own statute of limitations regarding how long a person has to file a lawsuit. The average time limit across the country for filing a car accident lawsuit is within two years of the accident occurring.
The first step in filing a car accident lawsuit is to contact and hire an automotive attorney. The attorney will be able to file the lawsuit against the defendant in the case and then head to the pre-litigation stage. During pre-litigation the attorney will process all of the damages that occurred and attempt to settle with the defendant out of court to avoid a lengthy trial process. It is quite possible for the attorney and the plaintiff to earn more money if the case is settled out of court.
The next step in filing a car accident lawsuit, while still in the pre-litigation phase, is to collect any and all medical records, medical billing records, repair estimates to the vehicle, loss of wages and any other documents pertinent to the case. This process can take more than one month in total time to complete and once it is finished the lawyer can demand a settlement from the insurance company of the defendant. If the insurance company does not decide to settle with the plaintiff then the plaintiff’s attorney will issue the formal lawsuit to the court. Once the personal injury lawsuit is filed with the court a trial date is set. The date is usually set for one year from the date of the lawsuit being filed.
How Do I Go About Finding The Legal Name Of Business In Brooklyn. For Litigation Reasons?
My Car Was Damaged In The Kings Plaza Parking Mall In Brooklyn And I Want To Sue For Damages.
Two ways to approach this. All businesses are listed with the court house, in some areas it's called "assumed names". This is open records and you can research this, possibly on the internet. This will give you the name of the person who listed the business. Secondly, tax rolls are also open record, and sometimes available online. With the address, you be able to find out who pays taxes on the property. Good Luck.
How Do Lawyers (Specifically Criminal Defense Attorneys) Use Computers In Their Career Field?
I Am A Freshman In College, And I'M Going To College To Eventually Become A Criminal Defense Attorney. In My Computers Class, We Have To Give A Presentation On How Computers Are Used In Our Career Field. I'M Hoping Some People, Or Even True Lawyers, Could Give Me Some Advice. Thanks!
#1 use: word processing
#2 use: research
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. If you possibly can, change your major asap.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

How Is A Judge (Family Law) Able To Remove Herself Off A Case? Why Would This Happen?
We Have Been With This Judge For Over The Course Of 2 Yrs Now And We Recently Had A Hearing. At The Point Of Checking In With The Clerk, She Let Us Know Then That The Judge Has Removed Herslef From Our Case And We Are Now With A Different Judge!!! Wow. Why And How Is This Possible?????
+ Please Only Answer If You Know The Reason. No Smart Allic Comments Please. This Is My Sons Life I Am Talking About. Thanx In Advance! +
There are several reasons why a judge removes herself from a case. The judge could have discovered a conflict of interest. The judge may have a schedule conflict. The court system in your jurisdiction may have rotating duties for judges.
If there is a family law case complicated enough that there are repeated appearances over two years, litigants in that case should have been represented by attorneys. If your son is a party in that case, have your son ask his attorney why the judge removed herself from the case. If your son is a minor in this case, and you are a party, ask your attorney. You may also ask the minor's attorney ad litem why the judge removed herself.
