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.

What Happened To Judge Mablean Ephraim On Divorce Court?
Who'S This New Chick?
This is from http://www.eurweb.com/printable.cfm?id=25782
"At a press conference last week to explain her reasons for leaving the syndicated Fox Television series “Divorce Court,” Judge Mablean Ephriam said the syndicator was unwilling to pay her as much as the other TV judges, and had the nerve to demand that her hairdo not change for the entire season.
“There will be no changes in the current hairstyle to avoid time consuming issues regarding her hair,” Fox was said to have stated during its negotiations – a demand Ephriam found to be very offensive and racially insensitive.
Here were her words at the press conference:
“The requirement also comes very close to a violation, if it does not in fact violate, the Fair Employment Practices Act. An employer cannot demand one to wear a particular hairstyle unless it directly affects or impacts the employee’s ability to perform his or her employment duties. My hairstyle does not meet this criteria, it is, however, a racial and ethnic issue.
“Suddenly, after seven years of a show that has run neck- in- neck with the other top rated court shows, why is my hair an issue. Why, I ask? Because of my ethnicity – African American, Black, *****, whatever term you prefer to use. Because of my genetics (short, curly, hair) which requires the use of chemicals and/or a hot pressing comb to straighten and curlers to style. It cannot be styled by a wash, blow dry and set. Therefore, in Fox’s opinion, it is a time consuming issue.
“I wore a short hairstyle which was my own hair. Due to a misapplication of a chemical process, I lost a substantial amount of hair in season six. Out of my desire to maintain continuity, and the image I had created (for the last five years), I elected to wear a wig last year. Had Fox asked me to maintain a short hairstyle for continuity and for image, it would have been a different issue. But they are saying I must continue to wear the wig because that would expedite the hair styling process. However, my hair has now grown. I had not yet decided what hairstyle I would wear for season eight. If I were to accept their demands, I would have been unable to make that decision.”
Ephriam also said the salary Fox offered her for season eight was substantially less than all of the other court show judges.
“Though I made several offers of reduction from my initial demand, in an effort to reach a settlement, Fox remained firm in its ‘low-ball offer’ and finally, its ‘take-or-leave it offer’ which contained a very small increase from its initial position, coupled with some other unreasonable demands,” she said. “Fox took the position that in order to receive this small increase (which was still unequal); there would be ‘significant production changes.’”
• Tape seven shows per day (sometimes eight), instead of six. “I indicated I could not do this effectively and produce quality shows,” she explains.
• No vacation time during tape schedule. She notes: “My national church convocation in November is the only vacation I take during tape season. Will I now not be allowed to observe my religious practice? This was non-negotiable for me. I believe this infringes on my freedom of religious belief? The other times-off from taping were promotional appearances… at the request of civic groups, schools, churches, women groups, and non-profit organizations such as the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage, which benefits Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s).
Ephraim continued: “There were several other issues related to the tape schedule and taping itself which were unfair to the staff and crew of ‘Divorce Court,’ as well as me. For instance, ‘we no longer will be able to pay for the holiday luncheon’ stated Fox. ‘Divorce Court’ has one catered meal the entire season, the Christmas holiday luncheon, before hiatus. This would be cut out if I were to be paid the small increase. This would not be fair to the staff and crew.
“Not only have I been impacted but my personal assistant Princess and my daughter, Darlene Allen. Darlene was head of the wardrobe department. She too now has been terminated.”
In closing, Ephriam thanks Fox “for the last seven years, for the opportunity, for the exposure. I also thank Fox for refusing to pay me what I know I was worth. It set me free to ascend to higher ground. To go beyond before. I firmly believe that God has a better plan for my life.”
Could be true..or false.

Have You Ever Drove Drunk?
Have You Ever Drove Drunk ? Also How Drunk Where You ?
I have an interesting story about this.
I am firmly against drunk driving, but I have done it ONCE.
It was my uncles birthday and I ended up doing some stupid stuff that is really out of character for me, because he just had a baby, and the celebratory spirit was high, so I drank like twenty Bud Lights and smoked some weed and a couple hits of Salvia Divinorum. Needless to say the Salvia put me a little out there and my Uncles wife's (who was a new mother) motherly instincts kicked in and kicked me out. I was supposed to have spent the night there so I had to get a ride back to my motel from my other uncle, who knew he was going to have to drive so was actually atone sober except for weed he brought and smoked.
Well for some reason we got pulled over and he quite stupidly admitted to having pot on him when the officer asked if their was any drugs or weapons in the vehicle (routine question). So he got arrested and I was sitting there very, very messed up on beer, pot and a hallucinogen more powerful microgram for microgram than LSD when the officer pulled me out too. So I stood there and he asked me if I had any drugs or knew of the drugs my uncle had. I said "No" and he asked if I had been doing any drugs ,and I said "No". I was sure he knew I was lying and was going to give me a breathaliser as I felt as if I was swaying like a tree in a strong wind and kind of thought the road was melting to my left, but the next question he asked was " Are you okay to follow me back to the station?" I was like "Sure thing" and than he handed me the keys. The other funny thing about this story as I did not have a drivers license and I guess he just didn't care to ask, but here I was being handed keys to a car by a cop while drunk off my ***, and high on copious amounts of weed and a couple bowls of salvia. Under fear of arrest I did not offer to speak up about the reality of my highly inebriated state so I took the keys , and when the officer told me to keep up , I said "You betcha sir."
I sat behind the wheel dumbfounded and more than a little nervous. My paranoid and drug addled mind brought back images of the movie Super Troopers and I was running through a number of terrible "gotcha" scenarios that were about to be played out with me as the unwitting victim.
I sat there for what seemed like forever until finally the cop car pulled away, and I started up the engine to follow. Suddenly I froze as all my knowledge of how to drive seemed to magically dissapear under the terrible anxiety of what I was about to under take. Minutes earlier i was running down this same stretch of road yelling as I felt myself be slowly ground down back into the earth to feed the spirit of the over looming trees that seemed to be communicating with me about the transcendental nature of reality. I was freaking out.
A car went ahead of me, than another, than anohter. I started to lose site of the officer and was snapped back to reality. I had to put this ****** in gear!
I popped it into drive and took off. If I had been in a stick shift I probably would have put it right into second. I found myself racing down the road and thinking "Stay between the yellow lines, keep the car ahead of you a safe distance and just follow the flow" , but suddenly in this night of curveballs a fast ball was thrown. The cop started CRUISING! I was like "Does he expect me to follow him like that?" No way was I falling into that trap and I kept my cool and just kept following the flow of traffic. After a couple of minutes I realized the cop was nowhere to be found and I was on my own. I suspiciously eyed other cruisers that passed me by but none seemed to give me gestures or otherwise make any indication they knew what was going on. I was now seriously considering not going to the station and in fact had quite decidedly decided just that, the only problem was I was still pretty lit and I found myself lost even though I was in relatively familiar territory. I drove around for what must have been forty five minutes before I somehow found myself on the same road my motel was on. I pulled in and proceeded to freak out alone in my hotel room for a while and purge the alcohol that was in my system (stick finger down throat). There is really no conclusion to this story but for the hour or so that it was happening it was a very surreal experience. My uncle got out and had to pay a fine and everything was for the most part all right with the world. I however would always wonder if I really was the victim of some bored country cops prank to see how well a guy ballsed out on salvia would make it when handed the keys of car by a cop and told to "Follow me".
What Made Racehorse Haynes Such A Prominent Criminal Defense Attorney In Texas?
Haynes is widely known in the criminal defense realm and though he’s starting to get up there at 80, he’s still out there trying cases. He made a name defending wealthy, high-profile clients against seemingly overwhelming evidence. He had an ego to match. 'Time' magazine once referred to him as one of the top six criminal lawyers in America and shortly before Cullen’s trial, Haynes was asked by a reporter if he was the best criminal defense lawyer in Texas. He barely paused before replying, “I believe I am.” Then, he immodestly added, “I wonder why you restrict it to Texas.”
Another old article from the Wall Street Journal noted the following:
Once, during closing arguments, Mr. Haynes cross-examined a key witness that the prosecution had refused to call by addressing pointed questions to an empty witness chair. His questions were so demanding of answers that 10 jurors voted to, acquit his client. It also quoted another lawyer saying of Haynes, “The reason Haynes is the best lawyer money can buy, is because he does his own detective work, he picks his juries real careful-like, and he isn’t too damned pin-striped to take a wild-fool risk now and again.”
Below I provided a link that is very Interesting, an Interview with Racehorse Haynes....
I've been to the Dallas and other parts of Texas a countless number of times (best friend lives there)...and, many speak highly of Racehorse Haynes..he's a legend.
My Sister Was Married For Twelve Years To This Guy And They Had Two Children. When They Were Like Eight And Ten My Sister And Him Split And She Started Dating A Woman.

it is a form of abuse that occurs the most often between divorced parents. It is sad that he is doing this to thier children. The man needs some counseling. I don't know if anything can be done legally but contact a lawyer and discuss the options
Can Lawyers Work Flexibly?
I Want To Become A Lawyer But Also Want To Have Kids. Is It Possible To Work , Say, 7-3Pm? Or To Come Into The Office At 9Am, Then Pick Up His Kids At 3Pm And Then Finish Work From Home?
Or See Clients In The Morning And Work Do Paperwork And Things At Home?
It depends on the type of lawyer that you are. I know many lawyers that have a morning schedule and are off in the afternoon (as long as they don't have court).
I know some (patent attorneys) that work from home part of the time. I know of one that has a big beautiful office chair that occasionally collects dust. My friend's wife works for a firm where one of the partners works from home a lot! His cases get filed in court but always settle out before they make it to court. I know of one attorney that works between WV and FL and has his Bar in both states.
I setup VPN for an attorney so that he could work from home in the afternoon and evenings and weekends; he wanted to beat traffic home. We were going to make his office electronic records capable until he saw the cost associated with scanning in documents and maintaining the records. He dictated to a .wav file with Dragon Naturally Speaking (Legal and Medical packages) and uploaded the .wav file and the translation to his office. It cut down on some typing for the legal assistants.
He had a legal researcher, who was also an attorney, that worked from home half of the time and never had court. The researcher/attorney had a special needs child and spent a lot of time at home but also did fantastic work and was a really great attorney. The firm I worked with never sent the researcher into court unless it was as co-counsel.
It's possible; you just need to find a job that will employ you in that situation.
