4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Enable You To When you need a legal professional at all, you have to work closely along with them to be able to win your case. Regardless how competent they are, they're likely to need your help. Listed below are four important ways 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 gonna reveal for them. Privilege means anything you say is held in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know all things in advance - most especially information one other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they must assist them to win. 3. Appear Early For All Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each time. In reality, because you might need to discuss last second details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any sort of crime, it's important in order to convince the court that you simply both regret the actions and they are making strides toward improving your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

How Easy Is It To Find A Job As A Lawyer After Your Licensed?
I Want To Know If This A Career Where I Wont Struggle To Find A Job When Im Done Going To School.
I will give you credit for asking about this BEFORE you enrolled in law school. I have bad news:
It is almost impossible in this job market.
Please 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. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being 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.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.<<<<<
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.
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 or Information Technology! 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 availability! and scholarships!

Please Help With Probate Attorney!?
Questions 1: Is It Standard Practice To Copy The Client On Actual Documents Filed On Their Behalf In A Probate Case? If Not, Is The Attorney Obligated To Provide Said Copies After The Client Emails A Formal Request? Questions 2: If I Send My Attorney Emails Referencing Important Situations With Tight Deadlines And My Attorney Fails To Reply In Time With The Proposed Deadlines And I Suffer Consequences Due Him Not Responding Accordingly, What Is My Recourse? Questions 3: Is There Anyone, Such As A Court-Appointed Attorney, That Oversees The Actions Of The Probate Attorney? If Yes, Would It Be Beneficial For Me To Contact This Individual Or Would It Just Raise Red-Flags And Complicate Matters Further? Questions 4: Is My Attorney Permitted To Answer Some Questions, But Completely Ignore Others?
Thank You Everyone! I Anxiously Await Your Responses.
if you suffer damage because your lawyer didn't do what they were supposed to, you sue them for mal practice. the judge oversees what happens in probate court. there is no attourney that oversees
what your probate attourney is doing. you need to ask them in person for documents. there is no way for you to prove they ever got your e-mails or read them.
What Signs Do Police Officers Look For When Determining If An Individual Has Been Driving Under The Influence?
Of Alcohol? Also, What Kind Of Tests Do Police Officers Use To Determine Just How Drunk The Individual Is?
If an officer suspects OUIL because of the manner in which the subject is driving the car, he/she follows the vehicle and makes certain observations: steadiness of steering, crossing center line 3 or more times, too slow,or too fast, windows down in winter for example..
That type of driving behavior establishes probable cause to pull the vehicle over. The next thing is to simply ask the driver if he/she has been drinking and note the answer. Often the driver will admit to two or three beverages. Then the officer explains why he pulled the driver over and asks him/her to step out of the vehicle. All the while the subjects movement and speech are carefully observed and noted.
Then follows the field sobriety tests while someone certified on the Breathalyzer is en route with it. Alphabet backwards, stand on one foot while touching your nose, walk a straight line, etc. One thing leads to another as one indicator opens the door for further investigation as probable cause is established.
Since alcohol is excreted by the lungs, the most definitive simple test is analysis of the excreted breath which is reported numerically and establishes an absolute as to how intoxicated the subject is. The suspect may request a blood alcohol level instead in which case is transported to the local ER to have blood obtained and tested. All this evidence is compiled to present a solid case.

I Wont To Go To College To Prepare To Go To Law School To Become A Lawyer. Do I Takr Paralegal Or Legal Class?
Sorry...misread your question the first time with the mispelled word (won't instead of want), so here's an edited answer. To become a lawyer in the US, you will need to earn a bachelors (4-year) degree in any subject, and take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). Being accepted to law school will then be based on your GPA, LSAT score, and admissions application. Again you can choose any major, though you may want to tailor your undergraduate education towards the area of law you are most interested in (e.g. engineering for patent law, business for corporate law, psychology or forensics for criminal law, government or political science for public policy, biology for environmental law, etc).
A Building Which Is About A 70 Years Old Needed A Renovation And The Owner Chose A Particular Contractor To Do The Job. While The Construction Was Going On They Came Across A Material Which Hindered The Work. ( This Material Is Not Included In The Contract Document), But They Went Ahead And Removed The Material. Then One Of The Workers Developed A Medical Problem And When He Was Tested They Found Out That It Was Lead Poisoning. So Three Months Later The Contractor Asked The Owner For Additional Costs That He Spent For Removing The Material. What Should The Architects Decision Be?
Thanks In Advance
Since the material was not included in the contract, the owner of the building may actually be able to sue the construction workers for a breech of contract. It's like if someone comes to fix your door, and then they realize that you needed a new window, and then fixed it and charged you for it without your knowledge.
