How to Work With Your Lawyer

September 23rd, 2022

1.Get organized. Prepare detailed written notes outlining your legal problem or questions. Provide the lawyer all the details,Guest Posting and let he or she decide what is important to your case.

2.Complete and honest disclosure of all facts. It is very important that you provide a complete and honest description of your problem, including information that may be favorable, unfavorable, or embarrassing. Leaving out a minor fact or detail could have a huge negative impact on your case. Only if you fully disclose the facts about your situation can an attorney properly advise you. Remember that there are strict rules that require an attorney to keep your information confidential.

3.Discuss fees. Your attorney will be ready to discuss fees at the first meeting, and you should be ready to do the same. You can and should negotiate fees and discuss payment plans with your attorney. Get your agreement in writing and keep a copy for your file. Most disputes about fees happen because there is no written record of an agreement.

4.Ask a lawyer questions. In order for your attorney to serve you better, you must understand all aspects of your case and the legal process. Understanding the process will help you understand how the lawyer is working and what type of information is needed on your case. But remember, you are paying for your attorney’s time. It is more cost effective to ask several questions at once instead of calling your attorney every time one question comes to mind. You may be charged for each call depending on your fee agreement.

5.Understand what you sign. Before you sign a document, ask your attorney to fully explain to your satisfaction any document. What can be clear and routine to an attorney can be confusing to people without formal legal training.

6.Keep your own records. Ask for copies of all letters and documents prepared on your case. You should also keep the written fee agreement between you and your attorney in the file. You may have to access this information at some point in the future so it is important to maintain records.

7.Legal advice. Give careful and thoughtful consideration to what your attorney advises. The attorney’s judgments are based on legal training and experience. Remember that lawyers cannot work magic. No attorney wins every case, and sometimes the best legal advice may not be what you want to hear. Your attorney will provide advice that has your best legal interests in mind. The central focus of any case is the facts. Each side will have facts that contribute to the outcome of the case. It is the lawyer’s responsibility to make you aware of the potential outcome of your case based on the facts.

What to Look For in a Traffic Attorney

March 14th, 2022

Almost all of us have gotten a traffic ticket before. Speeding, illegal turn, running a stop sign, driving in the HOV lanes, whatever it is, when you get the ticket the first thing you think of is how high your insurance rates are going to go and how much it is going to cost you. And then you talk to a buddy who says he fought his ticket and got it dismissed. And then you talk to someone else who says you are an idiot if you don’t fight your traffic ticket because they can be beat.

But you know nothing about traffic ticket defense and don’t feel like going to court, to look like an idiot or otherwise. So you consider hiring a traffic attorney. And let’s say you are in Seattle, for example, so you Google “Seattle traffic attorney.” And you get 1.5 million hits. And you know going into it you feel a little uneasy. Some of your friends have had great success working with an attorney, and some have had terrible experiences. So what should you look for in a good Seattle traffic attorney? Here are five things that might help.

First, you need someone that doesn’t claim that they will definitively be able to beat your traffic ticket. While that sounds a little counter intuitive (we all want someone that can win, after all), it makes sense when you think about it. Traffic law, like all other areas of the law, is predicated on two things – the law and the facts. If the law is on your side, but not the facts, you could lose. If the facts are on your side but not the facts, you could also lose. And if nothing is on your side, you might lose. But you never know until you get the opportunity to look at everything. So, a major red flag is that your potential traffic lawyer claims to have an unusually high rate of success.

Second, though, you do need someone that has as a major part of their practice traffic law. Don’t ask the attorney who put together your will to go in there and take care of your speeding ticket. He might be able to do it eventually, but like any other area of the law, there is a certain amount of specialized knowledge involved in the practice of traffic ticket law.

Third, don’t necessarily look for the cheapest traffic lawyer. For the most part, they are pretty cheap overall. For example, in Seattle I’ve seen charges anywhere from $175 to $350 for a simple traffic ticket. So shelling that out to have someone help is usually worth the payment (plus you don’t have to go to court, take off work, etc.). The thing is with paying a little more money is that you usually get better service. A smaller fee means that attorney needs to take on more cases to pay the rent. Fewer cases means more attention on you.
