4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Help You When you really need an attorney for any excuse, you need to work closely with them so that you can win your case. Regardless of how competent these are, they're planning to need your help. Allow me to share four important approaches to help your legal team allow you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - whatever information you're gonna reveal in their mind. Privilege means whatever you say is saved in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team must know everything in advance - particularly information other side could check out and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep an ongoing and factual account of all the information pertaining to your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with the data they should help them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and steer clear of wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are by the due date, every time. In fact, because you might need to discuss eleventh hour details or perhaps be extra ready for the way it is you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any sort of crime, it's important so that you can convince the legal court which you both regret the actions and so are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer for any rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the cities the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Lawsuit For Slip And Fall?
I Was Snow Blowing A Guys Driveways And Slipped And Messed My Back Up..I Was Snowblowing Him Out So He Can Go Take Care Of His Business And Plow The Lots..I Need To Know If I Can File A Suit Against Him..Because He Knew The Conditions Of The Weather..And I Immediatley Approached Him That I Had Fell On The Ice And He Didnt Ask If I Was Ok Or If I Needed To Go To The Er..He Is A Business Man Had His Own Plow..Snow Blower..He Was Actually A Friend Of Mine But We Are No Longer Friends..He Told Me That He Would Also Pay Me To Do It I Didnt Get Paid Till This Day...Serious People Only No Smart Remarks Pls
No. This is not a valid basis for a lawsuit.
It is not a basis for a lawsuit that you slipped and fell on a snow covered driveway under these conditions. You indicated that this is "because he knew the conditions of the weather." This is not relevant. You also knew the conditions of the weather.
What exactly did your former friend do that was negligent? (Negligence is a breach of a duty that is owed and that directly causes an injury.) Letting a friend snow blow his driveway is not an act of negligence. Asking a friend to snow blow is not an act of negligence. That he had his own snow blower is also irrelevant. Unless your former friend did something that directly caused your fall, you have no cause of action.
If you tried to take this court, the judge would probably ask you why you hadn't exercised reasonable care to keep yourself from falling while you were engaged in an activity that had you walking and maneuvering on snow and ice-covered surfaces.
My husband often snow blows our neighbor's driveways. He does what he can to wear the proper footwear and wears ice grabbers when necessary. But if he fell while doing someone else's driveway we wouldn't consider suing the neighbor. (With one of our neighbors we might not-so-subtly angle for her to make us a cake - because she owns a bakery and makes the most cakes you have ever imagined but we would never sue her over my hubby being a bit of a klutz.)
If this guy has home owner's insurance you might be able to submit a claim under his policy.
This Question Is For Any Attoney Who Can Clear Up A Few Questions.
My Aunt Filed A Report Against My Grandmother Stating That She Had Trespassed On Her Property. This Was After A Burglary On Her House Which She Accused My Grandmother Of. The Police Department Was Able To Issue A Warrant Simply On Hear Say To Pick My Grandmother Up. She Is Not Being Charged For Breaking And Entering, Just Trespassing. Doesnt A Judge Allow A Warrant To Be Issued? Is This Legal And If So How?
Call legal aid they can help.
Should I Lawyer Up?!?
About Three Weeks Ago I Was In A Car Accident With My Friend(She Was Driving And Lost Control Of The Car At 80Mph. I Was The Passenger And Had A Seat Belt On.) And Got Pretty Beaten Up. I Have A Broken Bone In My Hand And It'S Been Really Problematic(Been In 5 Casts, 6 Sets Of X-Rays, Been Reset 4 Times) And In A Week I Have An Appointment To Decide If It Needs Surgery. My Head Also Hit The Windshield And I Had A Concussion And Was Recently Diagnosed With Post-Concussion Syndrome. The Bills Have Started Coming In And After A Meeting With My Friends Insurance Rep, I'M Feeling Less Than Awesome. Should I Try To Find A Lawyer Now Or Wait? And Do You Think I Could Get A Pro-Bono Lawyer? I'M A Broke College Student.
Any personal injury lawyer will take this case on contingency. The lawyer will go after the insurance company or other party to pay his/her legal bills.
Make sure you have them take the case on "contingency" and it will cost you nothing if the attorney collects nothing. This needs to be spelled out clearly in your attorney-client agreement. You may want to seek to several lawyers before choosing one.
The lawyer will make sure that all - 100% of your medial bills are paid by the person who caused the accident, including their insurance company.
You don't want to wait in this case. And you are not responsible for the bills. A lawyer will have all the bills go to him or her and he/ she will fight to get them paid for you.
You don't need to be negotiating or dealing with this. This is the lawyer's job. This is too much stress for you to work through and getting better.
I would not tell anyone that you are thinking about getting a lawyer, just do it and let the lawyer handle all of this for you. He/she will guide you to make sure you are getting proper treatment, and you may need long term treatment years later and don't know this yet.
No need to further communicate with any other party. Any one who wants to talk to you about any of this, refer them to you lawyer. The lawyer will say this to you too.
Also do not sign any wavers/ agreements/ settlements. Have them be sent to your lawyer for review. They cannot refuse emergency medical treatment if you refuse to sign.
The longer you go w/o legal help the worse the case is for you. If you already did sign something, you can cite that you were "not in your right state of mind" or "signed under duress, for fear of not getting proper treatment" which arguably could be true due to the concussion and stress of your injury.
Check with the state bar (Google "State bar" then your state. Look up lawyers who specialize in personal injury. Find one with no less than 10 years legal experience.).

I Want A Civil Rights Attorney To Talk To Do You Or Anyone You Know Have Suggestions?
I Am In La And Mine Is In Chicago
Hi I live in Oklahoma and am a Pre-Paid Legal member I have had a membership for a little over a year now. With my legal plan I have been helped with a traffic ticket , my divorce ,and a debt that I was told I had to pay , but did not owe. With my membership I saved 6000.00 US. Dollars on my divorce, and 1500.00 US. On that debt, and got out of the ticket that would have cost me 250.00 US. Dollars. A Pre-Paid Legal Life Events Legal Plan SM gives you access to quality law firms for $26 a month or less. To sum this up I copped some info. From their web page. Have you ever...
Been overcharged for a repair?
Received a speeding ticket?
Purchased a home?
Tried to return a defective product?
Lost a security deposit?
Signed a contract?
Prepared a will?
Even though most people find themselves in these situations, the majority do not seek the advice or help of a qualified lawyer. Why?
It may cost too much.
They may not know where to begin.
The process is intimidating.
You only get as much justice as you can afford. If you don't know your rights, you simply don't have any! The top 10% of income earners can afford to have a lawyer on retainer and are accustomed to asking their lawyer for advice before making decisions. What about you?
With Pre-Paid Legal:
You know who to call.
You're treated like the firm's most important client.
A one year membership costs $312 or less.
You are empowered by knowing your legal rights.
Without Pre-Paid Legal:
You may try to handle it yourself.
You'll likely receive as much justice as you can afford.
You may pay hundreds of dollars for ONE HOUR of a lawyer's time.
If you don't know your rights, you don't have any!
Pre-Paid Legal "levels the playing field" in the justice system. With a Pre-Paid legal plan you can say, "I'm going to talk to my lawyer about this." -- and mean it!
You can have your personal legal document of up to 10 pages reviewed by an attorney and receive advice for your protection - BEFORE you sign. Prepare a Living Will BEFORE tragedy strikes. Pre-Paid Legal makes it possible for Pre-Paid Legal members to prepare a Living Will at no additional charge through the Pre-Paid Legal Forms Service Center. Phone Consultations on Unlimited Matters

How Come People Always Ask Lawyers Questions That Only Cops Can Answer ?
BUT police officers are NOT attorneys nor lawyers; most often they memorize a list of laws and make up the rest as they go along, or repeat whatever they hear others say without even finding out if it's true or not. That's why they are so respectful of attorneys and lawyers and oftentimes of paralegals, too.
Cops cannot answer legal questions; they are not attorneys nor lawyers and their jobs are to enforce, not to explain legalities... nor can Notary Public personnel answer legal questions or give opinions on law matters to any would-be client or person UNLESS they ARE paralegals or attorneys or lawyers (or judges, for that matter).
Police that specialize in certain crimes are somewhat familiar (or have a working familiarity with) certain aspects of laws governing that area of the crime they specialize in. For example, police that specialize in robbery as opposed to those in homicide or narcotics... just as doctors and even attorneys are now specializing in their particular field of expertise. I work with an attorney specializes in Bankruptcy and Real Estate yet he doesn't know much about Divorce or Family Law; another attorney I often work with specializes in Bankruptcy and Divorce but doesn't know much about Real Estate. I know another attorney who sounds like a medical doctor because of his understanding of anatomy, physiology and medical terms because he specializes in Personal Injury cases; he has somehow managed to attend a few autopsies, too. But, these attorneys do NOT know much about traffic tickets or traffic court and what they know about Landlord/Tenant Court procedures is less than what I know (I used to work with the Legal Aid in organizing LEGAL rent strikes back in the 70s, and I often appeared in court with tenants and affidavits and photos I had taken).
Police REALLY do not make the decision to arrest people unless they KNOW something beforehand or they've consulted with an Assistant District Attorney to explain aspects of the law they suspect are being broken.
Do not rely on television police personnel... it's all a nice fantasy... nice make-believe that REALLY deviates from the truth and reality.
WHO do you think trains police trainees in legal matters? And WHO do you think writes those legal books they read and study from? ATTORNEYS and LAWYERS.
I had one police officer tell me that I couldn't park before 12pm and I politely told him that there was NO such thing as 12am or 12pm... and he actually had the nerve to tell me that I didn't know what I was talking about, and he suggested that I was stupid... he obviously judged me by my long hair (worn in a ponytail, now graying) and I asked him if 12am was during the daylight or night... and he first said, it was during the day and I asked, "REALLY?" and he said, "No, I mean, night..." and I explained that the whole scenario of time not standing still... and suggested that he take the time to call up the Maritime Department and ask. So he asked me, "OK, wise-a.ss, what do you call 12 o'clock at night?" and I said, "I call that 12 midnight and during the day, I call it 12 'noon." The sign was taken away for a couple of days and a new one put up which indicates that there is no parking allowed before 12 'noon! (The neighbors started calling the sign Calico's Sign)
A few days later, he saw me and came over and said he and his friends got into a debate and he actually won a bet at the precinct since he discovered that there is no such thing as 12am or 12pm but there IS a 12 midnight and 12 'noon, as I had told him. (He later discovered that I was his daughter's teacher at the local college and he really felt bad... and even worse when I did his daughter's wedding photos; we've been good friends now for over 18 years).
