4 Ways To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you need a legal representative for any excuse, you must work closely using them in order to win your case. Irrespective of how competent these are, they're gonna need your help. Allow me to share four important methods 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 for them. Privilege means everything you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know all things in advance - most especially information another side could find out about 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 with all the current data they need to help them win. 3. Arrive Early For All Those Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, by being punctually, every time. Actually, because you may have to discuss very last minute details or perhaps be extra ready for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate Which You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important to be able to convince the court which 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 involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your chances of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you should win your case.

What Is The Best Search Engine For Law Cases...I'Ve Been Using Westlaw And Findlaw?
Using Both Of These Search Engines--I'M Still Not Locating What I Need As Far As Case History. I Don'T Have Access To A Law Library At The Moment And Am Trying To Do Some Research. Many Thanks For Your Answers.
That depends on what jurisdiction you're looking for cases in.
Some states DO have free case law available like California and Alaska.
Low cost case law is also available in some other states.
Lexisone.com offers five years of searchable state and federal appelate case law for free.
There's very little actual searchable case law at Findlaw.
The Internet For Lawyers <>http://www.netforlawyers.com> web site has lots of articles about locating case law for free.
They have also published a book that covers the topic in more detail. <>http://www.netforlawyers.com/prod01.htm>
Can I Ask A Lawyer To Give Their Client A Message?
I Have A Friend In Another City That I Have Been Trying To Reach. Upon Research, I Found Out They Were In Jail! But The Other Day, I Found Out On The Inmate Lookup Site That She Is Out On Bail. I Tried Calling Her But Cannot Reach Her. On The Court Website, It Has The Name And Telephone Number Of Her Attorney. Is It Ok For Me To Call Them And Ask To Give Her A Message? Can They Not Do That Because Of Attorney Client Privilege? Thanks So Much!
You can certainly ask and I would think it very much depends on the individual lawyer on whether they will do it or not. Hopefully they will not mind and pass on a message with your name and number on it. She will probably be pleased you have gone to such effort to find her. Another thing you could do is write her a letter and send it to lawyers office and I am sure it will reach her ok.

Is There A Way To Find Info Regarding A Low Cost Divorce Service?
A Friend Of Mine Who Lives In The State Of Kansas Is Seeking A "No Cost" Or Either A Very Low Cost Divorce Service. Her Husband Is Currently Incarcerated In The Same State And Will Not Contest It.
There Are So Many Online Possibilities To Choose From, So I Thought It Best To Ask If Anyone Knows Of A Highly Credible Source (With Easy To Follow Step-By-Step Instructions) Or Perhaps A Great Legal Adviser Here On Yahoo Answers.
I used an online document prep service: http://www.divorce4her.com/. They prepared the docs for me, then I served them and filed them. It was low cost for what I got, and they guaranteed the documents.
The filing fee is something you cannot get away from, or get "cheaper". It depends on each state and county, your local court house will be able to tell you how much the filing fee is.
Whatever you use, make sure its guaranteed, otherwise you could be putting money out and not getting accurate documents/help in return.
Getting A Divorce Decree?
I Am 16 Years Old And I Do Not Have A Good Relationship With Either Of My Parents, I Am Trying To Get Ahold Of The Divorce Decree So I Know Who Has Custody Rights And So On. Is There Any Possible Way For Me To Get This And If So Please Explain Asap! Thankyou So Much!
I have to say that despite the fact that you need to be 18 years old to be classed as an adult at 16 the DJ may not have put anything in he divorce papers about you as possibly your parents had privately agreed before going to court..........DJs will only make a judgement if the parents don't and only enter it into the paperwork if the children are young children..................as in the magority of places at 16 ys old you can leave home without permission and as long as you are safe, looking after yourself, eating, school/work then no one can force you back home, including the police, they can ask you but can't force you..........so you may not need to find a copy.........divorce paperwork is a public record, however again depending on the laws in the country you are in with regards to data protection you may not be able to see a copy for a number of years .................unless you ask one of your parents who will both have a copy themselves.
Civil/ Human Rights Attorney?
I'M Currently A Sophmore In High School, But For The Past 3 Or 4 Years, I Have Really Had My Set On Becoming A Civil Rights Attorney. I Am Doing Things To Make That Happen, Such As I Joined The Debate Team, I Am Taking Ap English Courses, And Ap History Courses And When Government Classes Become Available (Junior/Senior Year), I Plan On Taking Those.
I Know That In Order To Become A Lawyer Of Any Sort You Need To Have 4 Years Of Undergraduate Schooling And An Additional 3 Years Of Law School And Then Need To Pass A Written Bar Exam Specific To The State You Want To Work In. My Question Is, In Order To Become A Civil Rights Attorney, What Classes Would I Need To Take In Undergraduate School In Order To Be Successful? Political Science I Assume Is One Of Them...?
As stated before, your undergraduate major is not very important. You want to get into law school. Many apply and a few are accepted.
You will set yourself up for success by having two majors, so that you get a very broad education. Pick one tech major such as chemistry, physics, math, economics (the mathematical kind), nuclear engineering. Then, pick a humanities or social science such as English, Latin, philosophy, history, psychology, or political science.
Those who major in a tech field get higher test scores than those who major in one of the humanities or social sciences. The LSAT, which everyone needs to take, is based on logic, and tech majors find logic to be much simpler than other majors. Grades are important, but the LSAT is more important. If you look at the link I provided below, you will see that the few tech majors who go to law school do better than the thousands of political science majors that apply each year.
If you just major in political science, you aren't much different from everyone else. If you have an unusual major and engage in remarkable and unusual activities, you will stand out and go further. One year at our law school, there was a woman who majored in nuclear engineering. She was offered a full scholarship. She had around a 3.0 gpa and better than average test scores, but it was the rarity of her major that got her the attention. She was interested in civil rights law, but chose to go to a top 50 law school.
If you take 2 years off after undergrad to work in the peace corps, you will dramatically improve your application as well.
If you don't want to do all that, you need to get at least a 150 on your LSAT (average) and a 3.0 undergrad gpa to go to a 4th tier law school. The school might not be the greatest, but you will still be a lawyer.
