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.

Car Accident; Back Injury Claims?
I Was In An Accident About A Month Ago. I Rear-Ended Some Guy'S Car. He Didnt Want To Call The Police Or The Insurance Company. He Said It Wasnt A Big Deal, The Car Was Old Anyways, The Damage Was Minor. We Exchanged Phone Numbers And Agreed To Call Each Other Later And Come Up With A Settlement. He Asked For A Sum Of 300 Dollars And Every Time I Went To Give It To Him, He Wouldnt Want To Meet. So I Stopped Calling, About Three Weeks Later I Get A Letter Saying That He'S Taking Me To Court Cuz Of Back Injury. Can He Make A Case With No Police Report? Should I Notify My Insurance Company? What Should I Do? What Do You Think Might Happen, Can He Really Sue Me For Thousands Of Dollars? Please Give Me Advice I Would Appreciate It.
Well, gosh. The only reason someone like him would get an attorney is to try and threaten you. That's like him trying to sic a pit bull on you. But here's the good news. Personal injury attorneys that would take his case? They're total pushovers.
So, here's what you do.
#1. No one's going to court anytime soon.
If YOU did not report the accident to your insurance company. Pick up the phone and do it now. (Apologizing for a late report is not going to make things any better.) The sooner you get it reported the better. Even IF you had insurance for the date of loss - if you, by your actions, have prejudiced the carrier's ability to handle the claim.....Guess what? They can deny coverage. ooops. You don't want that so...get on the horn.
Now.....when you said you got a letter saying he's taking you to court.......things really are NOT that simple as far as court is concerned. There are filings that have to be done, approvals that need signed, docket scheduling...... and certainly you know - public officials move slower than dirt. And that's just the court part.
In a suit? Suit has to be filed, answered, interrogatories have to be served/answered, discovery has to be served, depositions....
Do ya really think someone wants to go through all that for a simple back injury? This close to the accident?
Like I said - getting an attorney after you is a bullying technique. They want you to get scared.
Hold your poise! No shaking in yer boots, ok ?
Get it reported to your insurance company (keep your fingers crossed coverage will be in order) and let them sic their injury adjusters on the attorney. He will have to WORK for the money he is trying to rip off the other guy for.
Ok, so.....you're calling your insurance company now, right?
It doesn't sound like you need an attorney right now. If you do - and your insurance is in order - your insurance company will provide a defense for you.
Oh - and make a police report. Better late than never. (Btw - that is a requirement of your policy. Shhhhhhh)
What Justification For Requiring Witness In Court To Swear Or Affirm Their Answers Are Truthful?
Yet Attorneys And Law Enforcement In The Field Are Not Held To The Same Standard. Which Allows Twisted Theories To Be Presented As Factual Evidence, And Exculpatory Details Exonerating A Defendant To Be Undisclosed To The Court.
All witnesses, including attorneys and law enforcement, are required to swear or affirm to tell the truth when testifying in court or in depositions.
Theories are not evidence, but may be included in the prosecutor's or defense attorney's arguments.
Exculpatory evidence is admissible. It happens hundreds of times a day in trial courts in every state. If it did not happen in your trial, ask your appellate attorney why such evidence was not offerred.
I Have A Question For An Injury Lawyer......?
I Was The Passenger In A Car Accident In Febuary And Ended Up With A Fractured Hip And Dislocated It Also. I Had To Have Emergency Surgery And Have Pins And Plates Put In. I Am An Army Reservist And I Also Had A Civilian Job. The Doctor Is Says I Pretty Much Cant Do Anything And Now I Have To Have A Full Hip Replacement. I Havent Been Able To Work Since Febuary And The Insurance Company Of The Person At Fault Said They Can Only Offer 250000 Dollars To Cover The First Surgery And The First Surgery Was A Little Over 68000. Im Not Being Compinsated In Any Way Shape Or Form And Its Been Over 2 Months. Im Even Having To Pay Out Of My Own Pocket For The Monthly Doctor Visits. And The Insurance Company Said I Have To Find My Own Sources For The Second Surgery. Im Currently Not Insured. Because Of This Accident I Might Very Well Be Getting A Military Discharge Also. I Havent Had Any Source Of Income Since The Accident Or Anything. Is There More That I Should Be Entitled Too Other Than What The Insurance Company Said They Could Cover? Or Am I Pretty Much Screwed? There Were No Other Cars Involved. The Person At Fault Was The Driver And He Lost Control On The Interstate And Hit Head On Into The Concrete Median..
Ask your lawyer. No insurance company will offer you more than what their paper says, but a lawyer will get that number increased. Of course, the lawyer will also take a substantial chunk of any settlement made, from 30-40% of the total. So if he can't at least double the money, it isn't worth the effort.
Do Disability Lawyers Like To Use Their Own Doctors Or Do They Have To Use A Social Security Doctor?
I Am Getting Help From A Large Firm Lawyer To Get My Social Security Disability And They Are Sending Me To A Doctor Where I Have To Pay $500.00 Up Front. Do You Think They Are Using Their Own Doctors Or Is It A Social Security Doctor? They Said I Have To Pay Cash Up Front To The Doctor.
What you have to remember for disability is this. Have as much documentation from YOUR Dr's I do not know what your disability is but I know with mine I had so much documentation from all the Dr's I went to.
I got every report every film I had op reports physical therapy reports.
The next step was I was to see a Social Security Dr. 2 days before the appointment my lawyers called and said Social Security received all your reports and just issued me Social Security Disability without their Dr looking at me. that is how much documentation I had.
I do not like the idea that your lawyer has a Dr for you to go to for Social Security, but that is just me.
Like I said earlier I do not know what happened toy you but get as much documentation as possible. You are entitled to any and all reports from Dr's you went to EXCEPT a workers comp Dr. But your lawyer can get those and you should ask for a copy of them also.
Hope this helped.
How Do I Locate This Lawyer Who Stole Money From Her Clients?
Why do you want to locate the lawyer? If you aren't a victim, it's none of your business where she is.
If you are a victim, then contact the state bar and they will try to help you get your money back. Do NOT try to contact her personally.
Is An Engineering Or Science Degree Necessary To Practice Intellectual Property Law?
I'M A First Year Law Student With A Background In Web Development. I'Ve Always Been Fascinated By Online Copyright Issues And Media Distribution, So Intellectual Property Seems Like A Good Area To Focus On For My Second And Third Years. However, I'Ve Heard From A Least One Person That Ip Lawyers Are Pretty Much Required To Have Engineering Or Science Degrees. My Undergraduate Work Is In English And Philosophy. Does This Mean I Don'T Have Much Of A Chance As A Copyright Attorney?
No, I know a few lawyers who have come into that field from the entertainment angle. One in particular worked for a major studio before law school.
You really only need to know the tech stuff to a degree. If you are doing patents it would be very useful but IP stuff can cross over into many areas.
Job searching might be a little harder but it is not impossible.
Don't forget to take everything a third year says with a grain of salt. Many of them a very bitter after being in law school for two plus years. Ask a prof in the field to get a better perspective on what you should do to reach your goals.
