4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a lawyer at all, you have to work closely using them so that you can win your case. Regardless how competent they can be, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important methods to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest And Up Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're going to reveal to them. Privilege means everything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know everything in advance - especially information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuous and factual account of most information related to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they must assist them to win. 3. Turn 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, by being on time, whenever. Actually, because you may have to discuss eleventh hour details or even be extra prepared for the case you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for just about any crime, it's important in order to prove to the court which you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward enhancing your life. As an 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 together with your legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

What Is The Best Field Of Law?
I Am Thinking Of Law School And Was Wondering If Anyone Had Opinions On Which Was The Best Field Of Law...
For Fun Daily Work?
For Time With Family?
For Most Overall Fullfillment?
My husband is an attorney and he has friends in all areas of law. Most are unhappy with their career choice. The ones who are happy are almost all in criminal law (ie. District Attorney or Public Defender.) Public employees tend to have a decent salary, great benefits, and unless you are in trial, reasonable hours. The L.A. Public Defender starts at about $60k and after 15 years, you'll make about $110k. Not the "gobs of money" you think about, but a decent living.
The public sector criminal attorneys are the people who went to law school knowing what they wanted to do and did it. This is the best reason to go to law school.
Too many people go to law school not out of a burning passion for law but because it was a professional program and they thought they'd make good money.
Unless you are in the public sector and fighting for a cause, law is a business like any other. At the "big firms" Senior Partners can make seven figures -- but that's after 20 years of 80 hour work weeks.
The most lucrative field is Patent Law but you've got to have quite a bit of undergraduate science and pass a special Patent Law exam on top of the bar exam to practice in Patent Courts.
Intellectual Property pays more on average than other forms of civil law.
Having your own practice can help you balance work/life issues and can also be quite lucrative. But some people who do this barely squeak out a living. Again, it boils down to your business skills.
If you really want to be a lawyer -- go! Don't let anyone hold you back. But, if you're just searching for a profession, think twice about law. Almost every private sector lawyer I know (including my husband) wishes they had picked another path.

Help With Legal Advice During A Divorce?
I Am 20 Years Old And My Parents Recently Got Divorced. My Father Wants Both My Little Sister And Little Brother, But For The Time Being, My Mom Is Taking Care Of The Kids. She Has No Job, But Lives On Interest Of The Market. My Dad Has Yet To Pay Any Child Support, He Has Not Payed Any Bills, Or Even Helped Out For The Matter. And He Took The Tax Return They Were Supposed To Split And Deposited It In An Account Where It Cannot Be Touched. He Seems That He Is 20 Steps Ahead Of My Mom, And I Want To Help Her Out. My Father Is Doing Anything He Can To Get My Mothers Money, Even If It Is The Dirtiest Way Possible. He Is Finding Loopholes In The System That My Mom Had No Idea About. It Seems That He Had Been Planning This Divorce Far Long Before My Mother Kicked Him Out. So I Need Help On Figuring Out What I Can Do For My Mom. If Anybody Has Any Advice What I Can Do, Or Any Cards That I Can Play, Let Me Know Please. I Want My Dad To Suffer, Financially And Emotionally, Like He Is Making My Mom Do Now.
My best advice is to stay out of it.
Your mom's got you sucked into taking sides, where a good parent would want to make sure you weren't hurt by the divorce and that you still had plenty of time and love for and from both parents. A good mother doesn't ask or want her son to start acting like the new man of the family - she wants his father in his life as a role model even if she's not in love with him anymore. I have custody of my daughter. My ex-wife hasn't paid child support for the past year. She hasn't paid her half for braces. You know what I tell my daughter about her mother? That her mother loves her, and that I want her to have a good relationship with her mother.
You don't actually know what your dad has paid and hasn't. My ex-wife told my kids I paid no support while I was paying $2000/month. She kicked them out, kept the money, and made up a sob story about me and evil lawyers and courts and Swiss bank accounts and secret mistresses. They believed her. You don't know who was supposed to get the tax refund or how it was supposed to be handled unless you've read the divorce decree, and you don't actually know what he's done with it unless you have the password to his bank account online. All I can tell from your post is that he made most of the money that was taxed, so he probably deserves most of the refund.
If your dad has moved out, he's not supposed to pay bills other than child support after a divorce.
It sounds like both your parents were unhappy with each other. Your mother kicked your father out and now says the divorce was his plan? That doesn't make sense.
Believe me, your father is suffering financially just like your mother. That's the nature of divorce. You suddenly have to support two households on the same income you were using to support one. So you cut back. We divorced people have all been through it and survived. So will your mom.
And believe me, your father is suffering emotionally because of your taking sides. Nothing hurts worse than that. You can't even imagine until you've raised kids and been divorced, which I wouldn't wish on you.
Attorney'S General'S Office?
Iwas Wondering How Would I Be Able To Find A Attorney That Can Give Me Some Advice On Out Standing Payday Loans???? Any Help With This Please???
To find an attorney who specializes in predatory lending practices (i.e., payday loans), you can start by using the Lawyer Referral Locator from the American Bar Association (ABA). I have included the link below for your review. Please note, however, that you should check with your state bar association in your state to confirm whether the attorney you have located has not been disbarred or disciplined for poor practice of the law.

How Can Peopel Become Divorce Attorneys?
Criminal Attorneys, Tax Attorneys, Corporate Attorneys, Injury Attorneys, And All The Other Types Are Cool In My Book. These Are All Very Interesting Fields And If I Was To Be An Attorney I Would Pick One Of These.
But How Can Someone Who Graduated From Law School Choose To Work As A Divorce Attorney? It Must Be So Sad Dealing With All Those Cases. True, As A Criminal Attorney You May Have To Defend Someone Who You Know Deserves To Go To Jail Or As An Injury Attorney You May Have To Deal With Crybabies Who Don'T Really Deserve The Millions Of Dollars They Are Getting.
But To Work As A Divorce Attorney Just Seems So Wrong. I Mean, How Could Someone Be The One That'S Helping To Break Apart A Family? It Just Seems So Sad And Wrong To Me.
I think you're looking at it from the wrong perspective. When people come to see a divorce attorney, then have already made the decision to split up (in most cases). The divorce attorney fights to keep things even in a situation where emotions are running very high. Sure, there are blood-sucking leaches out there who call themselves divorce attorneys, but I believe them to be the exception, not the rule.
I am in law school now, and I plan to practice family law. My goal is to help people apprach divorce with a sense of fairness, and above all else to help them work out enough of their differences to understand that if children are involved, the children need both of them. I think the children need an advocate when Mom and Dad are splittingup.
When a marriage isn't working, few people these days are willing to put in the effort that it takes to really fix things. If it's oging to happen, I feel that an ethical attorney can make this traumatic time better for all involved. Divorce does not have to be adversarial.
