4 Methods To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you want a lawyer for any reason, you have to work closely using them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they are, they're going to need your help. Here are four important strategies to help your legal team help you win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - no matter what information you're planning to reveal to them. Privilege means whatever you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team needs to know all things in advance - particularly information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a continuing and factual account of information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they need to help them to win. 3. Turn Up Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and get away from wasting the attorney's time, too, because they are on time, every time. In fact, because you may need to discuss last minute details or even be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's smart to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been arrested for any type of crime, it's important in order to prove to the legal court that you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward boosting your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and included in the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely together with your legal team increases your likelihood of absolute success. Try these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

How Do Intellectual Property Laws Work Across Countries?
Let'S Say A Person In A Country A Infringes The Copyright/Trademark/Patent Of A Product Registered In Country B, By Uploading It To An Online Server In Country C. Which Laws Would Apply?
The laws apply somewhat differently in each situation.
Copyright, for example, is fairly standardized across more than 160 countries, under the Bern Convention. Protection in one is protection in all. Patents, on the other hand, are only protected in countries where the applicants paid to have the patents issued. Trademark laws are another animal entirely.
To take the simplest case, the upload by a person in A to a server in C of material with a copyright registered in B would probably violate the laws of all three countries because A, B, C, D do not require registration of copyright to have it enforced. If the copyright owners live in D and have an extradition treaty with A, then the courts in D will put the person in to the prisons in D, assuming that A will extradite. For instance, Sweden protects its own nationals from extradition to the USA, but Canada doesn't.
Why Isn'T There A National Directory Listing Of Doctors Like We Have Martindale-Hubbel For Lawyers In The U.S.?
In Martindale We Can Look Up Where Lawyers Went To School, Where They Practice, What Their Specialties Are, And Even How They Are Rated By Their Peers.
Why Is There No Directory Of Information Like This About Doctors In The U.S.?
Well it depends on what you want to do. There's NPI indexes that list all doctors (and pharmacists, healthcare providers in general) by NPI number, including location of practice, phone, fax, degree type and so on. NPIValidator.com is a good one.
Most insurance providers also have a physician finder specific to the plan network - which searches for in network physicians by location, specialty and so on. Those are usually found on the website of whatever healthcare provider you have.

David, contact the state bar association of your state (google it). Many (if not most) states have pro bono programs, where a number of lawyers volunteer to take so many cases a year for no fee. You should be able to get some help that way.

Why do you want to become an attorney?
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 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)
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.)
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
To be an Attorney, approx cost $150,000+.
Do your research, before you enroll.
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.............
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 field of healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Can Someone Help Me Find Legal Representation For A Property Deed Situation?
I Have A Property That I Purchased Paid For In Full. I Had An Incident Where I Was Concerned For My Saftey Due To Some Personal Issues So I Quick Claimed My Property Into My Alias Name. Later, My Mom Decided She Wanted To Take Over The Property And I Set Up Arrangements And Did A Memorandum Into Her Name That Had Already Been Quick Claimed Over Into The Alias I Used. I Never Registered The Land Contract Portion To Support That Transaction Thouroughly. My Question Is Could That Be Done? Does My Mom Legally Own This Property? I Live In Detroit Michigan. Can Anyone Refer Council In This Matter?
Unless you obtained a court order to use a fictitious name you could have some really serious legal problems, beyond RE law and into criminal law, as you could be charged with fraud.
Your mother doesn't own anything, she can not take over ownership from a nonexistent person. There is no freaking way those documents are notarized unless you also convinced a notary that a little bid of fraud was worth a few years behind bars. At this point I am not even sure you own this either unless you have the appropriate legal documentation to prove you are the "alias". With the owner not being anyone you can legally identify themselves the property is more likely going to owned by the state as abandoned property.
Start with an attorney who specializes in RE, that will at least get you started.
