4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want a legal representative for any excuse, you must work closely together in order to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - regardless of what information you're gonna reveal to them. Privilege means what you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team has to know everything in advance - most importantly information other side could discover and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of most information regarding your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they need to help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For Those Engagements Never be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, whenever. Actually, because you may have to discuss last minute details or be extra prepared for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You May Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court that you both regret the actions and they are making strides toward improving your life. By way of example, if you're facing a DUI, 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 odds of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Career Advice? Accounting? Law Enforcement?
I Am A Junior Accounting Major With A Minor In Criminal Justice. I Am Planning On Getting My Masters Degree In Accounting And Getting A Cpa Licence.
I Don'T Really Have A Grasp On What I Would Like To Do Once I Get My Masters And Cpa.
On One Hand, I Want To Have A Job In Some Kind Of Law Enforcement, However The I Feel Like The Salary Wont Be Comparable To What I Could Make With An Accounting Job Once I Have Climbed The Ladder In A Corporate Role. Will Becoming A Higher Rank In As A Police Officer Be Easier With A Masters In Accounting?
So I Guess What I Am Trying To Ask Is Whether Or Not The Salary Differential Should Be The Reason As To Why I Choose To Go With An Accounting Job And Climb The Ropes To Hopefully Be A Senior Accountant Or A Cfo Or Something Along Those Lines Or Go Into Law Enforcement And Climb The Ranks There.??
The FBI hires CPAs to do organized crime and white collar crime investigations. If you want to do law enforcement, that'd be a good way to go, assuming you can meet their criteria for physical and character fitness.
Truthfully, the best way to go as far as pay goes is to go into public accounting and stay in long enough to make partner. In industry, the highest you will go without having someone die while you work there is controller, and those guys usually don't get paid over $70k. The only way to make CFO is if the CFO who's there while you're Controller retires or moves to another company. It's incredibly boring work and you have to contend with a lot more office politics than in public accounting. Last, every CEO in the country will view you as an expense, not an asset, and won't give a crap about you or your work. So far as they're concerned, the only reason they have accountants is because SOX requires them to, and that's usually how they treat you. Where I used to work, they laid off half our accounting department (starting with the old ones) and required us to start working weekends with no bonus or raise so they could hire more sales people and open a call center. Personally, I'd rather mop floors than be back in industry.
A lot of people go the Big-4 route, but for work/life balance and all that, you're better off going with a medium-sized local or regional firm. Big-4, you're pretty much guaranteed to burn out in two years and get stuck doing really specialized stuff you can't take anywhere else. It might sound interesting to work on tax provisions for a Dutch subsidiary until you do it for six months straight and find out no one outside of Deloitte or KPMG needs to know how to do that or wants to pay for you to do it. You could lateral over into industry, but again, that is entirely over-rated.
What Can You Do With A Law Degree Becoming An Attorney?
I'M Wrapping Up My Masters In Economics Soon And I'M Trying To Figure Out What To Do Afterwards. I'M Into Public Policy, Fiscal Analysis, Economic Development, And International Trade/Finance. I'Ve Heard That Econ Has A Pretty Strong Draw Towards Law School, But I Have Little Interest In Becoming A Trial Attorney. What Other Occupations/Fields/Career Paths Can Be Opened Up With Obtaining A Law Degree?
Actually, most attorneys rarely, if ever, go to "trial." Even those attorneys involved in litigation rarely go. The only "trial" attorneys, anymore, are those specializing in criminal law (DAs, ADAs, AUSAs, defense attorneys) and those doing some types of personal injury work.
Almost everyone else is a "transactional" attorney of some sort. They're filing papers with the SEC for a stock deal (ore reviewing the papers for the SEC). They're filing papers with the FTC/DOJ for a merger (or reviewing the papers for the FTC/DOJ). They're doing contract deals--business, real estate, trade. Even litigation attorneys are rarely in court as most cases settle--it's actually too costly to go to "trial."
And there are a plethora of attorneys doing exactly what you have an interest in. You can work as counsel to a Senate/House committee. *Every single* federal agency has attorneys working for it and most are evaluating the policy from a legal standpoint (does it conform to what Congress has mandated, are our rulemaking procedures correct, etc.). Work for the DOJs tax division. Work for the World Bank or IMF. Work for USAID. Work for the State Department.
You can do the areas you've indicated an interest in either from a private firm perspective or a governmental agency perspective. Both will provide several opportunities. After some time spent in either of these, you can go in-house counsel at a corporation doing the kind of work you find interesting.
Here's the one piece of advice I will give you: don't go to law school unless you *know* you want to practice law. This is an unfortunate situation: how will you know you want to practice law unless you go to law school? Can't help you with that one. I just knew.
Here's why I give that advice: law schools are expensive and becoming increasingly so (and those that are affordable are likely to be less well-regarded--although this is not always the case). By the time you graduate, pretty much the only profession that can help you pay back your loans in a timely manner is the legal profession. It used to be that a law degree was helpful for any profession that you chose to go into. While that's still the case, not just "any profession" will give you the salary you need to pay back your loans.
Woohoo for you if you can pay for school without going into debt, however, and what I just said becomes null: you will benefit in almost ANY profession from having a law degree. Doing well in law school shows a commitment to a goal, a degree of perfection, and intelligence. It will be a benefit to you in whatever job you take.

I Need Help. My Ex-Husband Is Planning To Visit Although He Hasn'T Seen Our 2 Kids In Two Years (3 Visits In 6 Years) And Doesn'T Keep Regular Contact With Them.

Does your kids want to see him? I know it sounds like too little too late but sometimes men just need a wake up call and wants to actually be a father to his kids. I would talk to him first find out what his intentions are.

Missouri Family Law (Child Support Guidelines)?
I Was Just Wondering Where I Could Find Detailed Information On The Missouri Law Regarding Child Support Calculations. I Know In Texas They Have A Maximum Of $7500/Mo Resources That They Can Base Child Support On. Which Means That The Maximum Child Support Paid On 2 Children For Someone'S Whose Resources Are $7500 Or More Is $1875 (Granted There Are No Other Children), Because The State Doesn'T Consider The Other Parent'S Income, Just A Percentage Of The Non-Custodial. However, I Know The Mo Considers Both Parent'S Income And What Not, So I Was Wondering If There Is A Maximum Child Support Obligation That Someone Would Pay For 2 Children. Thanks!
Here is a website which explains how and at what rate Missouri child support is based: http://www.ehow.com/how_6581631_missouri...
