Naturally you want to be sure any lawyer you work with knows his or her stuff. But after you selected your lawyers you kind of married to him/her for the duration of you legal troubles. You need to try make the best from the lawyer you got  as a dream lawyers are not available. Unless you are  a billionaire. And even in this case your mileage can vary. Lawyers essentially sell their time to the clients. the problem is that they typically are involved in several cases. This constant switching is difficult and diminish the quality of their service. You may notice that they do not remember some critical facts about your case the next time you meet them. that's a sign of troubles.

That means that it may be well worth it to pay more for experience and expertise. But at this point it is you late. you have what you have. If your lawer handed similar cases in the last you are very lucky. If not all your hopes is that he/she will learn on the job. In this case you kind of guinea pig.

Things can take longer than expected for many reasons. The initial estimate can be too optimistic. Government authorities or local officials may move more slowly than anticipated. The action or in action of adversaries or others may change the timetable significantly. But it still reasonable to ask for an estimate of the timeframe of your case at the beginning. And it is reasonable for you to check periodically and ask for the explanation should the original timetable not hold true.

A good lawyer will be keeping you informed of anything significant, so you shouldn't have to ask for information about important development. But if you are feeling that you are left in a dark, don't be afraid to ask. Remember that your lawyer has an ethical duty do to keep your reasonably informed and you you are paying the bills.

It is good to ask a step-by-step plan from your lawyer. It is something that you both can work on and modify, later if the circumstances or fact of the case change. Unless the responsibilities and expectations are laid down clearly for everyone, they may not get accomplished. People may fail to act simply because they did not realize their responsibilities. Or they may fail to act without good reasons in which case you need to know that and may have to consider making adjustments.

Ideally they should be written down. Good lawyers often write a letter or memorandum to you to summarize the services they will provide and steps that ought to be taken. If you don't get such a written summary from your attorney, you might want to consider preparing one yourself and sharing it with  your lawyer during the next meeting.

Key points

You need to make sure that the time slot you bought from your lawyer is used efficiently. But how you know whether your lawyer uses this time? Outside of direct interactions you don't. That depends a lot on the lawyer's ability to communicate and your ability to communicate with the lawyer.  Beware "full cost upfront lawyers". This is a dangerous gambit.

One hour consultation will cost you typically around $350. If you are not prepared this time slot and written list of question considerable part of this timeslot will be typically thrown out of the windows. The way to prepare to your questions is the  same as to prepare to exams.  You study the subject and do you next to ask what is really important. you also you know probably answers. And you need to have supporting documentation.  One way to prepare is to read several books to understand the situation in which your got better and be able to thing in law terms.

Moreover many lawyers are not very good communicators. They might be tired. they might be distracted by other cases, which they consider more important. Yes, they are trained to think clearly and quickly, to survive under pressure. They know the terminology and procedures. But as for the best defense path in your case it depends. But it is their  responsibility to explain the case to you and show all the admissible to court evidence. Doing this with the lawyer actually helps them better understand the case and help to find the line of defense the most beneficial for you.

There are many reasons for the all too common experience of flawed communication between you and your lawyer and both may contribute to the problem. That means that you do need to learn this skills and in order to acquire them you need to read the books that cover this topic. That might help you to communicate effectively with your lawyer, avoid common mistakes, and feel more satisfied with your lawyer. As well as get better results from your experience with the legal profession and the legal system. Here are some vague  recommendation that might or might not be helpful:

What You Should Expect From a Lawyer

From Nolo.com

From How To Work With Your Lawyer Book One The Law in Six MinutesTM Series (Volume 1) Esq., Bryan M. Dench 9781523317301 Amazon

REMEMBER:

When you meet with your lawyer:

If there’s a choice between different courses of action, ask the lawyer for a recommendation. Consider the ramifications, consequences of actions and what might go wrong and ask the lawyer why he's making the recommendation he is making.

If a lawyer tells you you can’t do what you want, you should ask if there's something else you can do to meet or come close to your objective.

It's also possible to get another opinion or advice from another attorney if the advice you get at first disappoints or seems wrong to you. This is not to "shop around" for a lawyer who will tell you what you want to hear, but just to be sure you are getting good advice and understand it and the reasons for it.

People do change lawyers sometimes. It may be a good idea if you’re not happy with your lawyer, do not feel comfortable, or don't feel the lawyer is zealously representing your interests, just be sure that you're doing it for good reasons and not to get a lawyer who will push for what you want, whether warranted and prudent or not.

REMEMBER:

• Know your goals and what you want to accomplish.

• Get your lawyer's advice on whether these are attainable goals. If not, get the lawyer to tell you what you can accomplish.

• Be ready to adjust your expectations if you must.

• Expect creativity and a positive attitude from your lawyer (and if you don't
get that, change lawyers). Don’t settle for only negative responses.

• Be realistic. A good lawyer will help you to understand the reality of your situation, which is the kind of advice you want.

The best book for any person who wants to understand how ... , February 29, 2016

The Tools of Argument: How the Best Lawyers Think, Argue, and Win (Paperback)

The best book for any person who wants to understand how American Courts work! At times we all ask questions like "How can this criminal get off on technicalities if it is obvious that he/she committed crime?", or "How can this be fair?" or "How can a lawyer defend this "bad guy/girl"? This is totally wrong! He/she is a criminal!" The author explains the difference between law and common sense, law and ethics, understanding of crime in legal terms and in laymen words.The book closely examines the logical reasoning of the law professionals , demonstrating the "tricks" used in court rooms. Fascinating reading!!!

WARNING: the book will not prepare you to go to court and defend your case! This is not a "how-to" manual for folks who are planning to go to court. Hire a lawyer if need be.

However, if you want to learn how to present and defend your point (any point, not just legal issues) as an intelligent and convincing person, this book is for you! Chances are, by the time you are done with debating your next case, your opponents will at least respect your opinion (or hate your guts, which still might give you some satisfaction).

This book is for anyone who wants to boost up their skills in logical persuasion, finding loopholes in opponent's logical reasoning.

Lots of interesting and valuable information for a pretty small price! It is written in a short and clear format: each chapter discusses specific idea, giving examples from court cases and average daily life (parent-child, husband-wife, employee-supervisor), concluding with a practical application summary argument vs. counterargument.

So, no reason to read the entire book from beginning to end. One can just pick any chapter and read about how this or that legal (logical) rule can be applied in daily life.

[May 26, 2017] Tips for Working with a Lawyer

Notable quotes:
"... res ipsa loquitur, ..."
May 26, 2017 | litigation.findlaw.com
This article will highlight some of the best tips for working with a lawyer.

Although it may seem like a strained relationship right off the bat, if you can form a solid bond with your legal representative, it may have a big impact on the future success of your case. If you feel comfortable working with your lawyer, and, in turn, your attorney feels comfortable working with you, it can do wonders for your case, not to mention reduce the stress that you will likely be putting on yourself when at trial.

However, like any type of relationship, the relationship that you have when working with a lawyer is a two way street, meaning that your attorney will have to work at it just as much as you will. Lawyers can work on attorney-client relationships in many ways, but perhaps the best means is to keep lines of communication open. A good attorney will always update you with necessary information and also be able to answer questions for you in a timely fashion. In addition, good attorneys will also help you prepare for important moments in your case, like testifying in court or answering questions at a deposition.

As just mentioned, you too will also have a great impact on the working relationship that you have with a lawyer. There are plenty of steps that you can take that will better the workflow and ultimately save you time and money, and may even increase your chances of winning your case.

Pass on pertinent information . After you have gone through the process of selecting and hiring a lawyer to represent you in your case, you should round up every scrap of information that is relevant to your case and give it all to your attorney. Give as much information as possible, even if you think it may not be that pertinent. Lawyers are much like human sieves when it comes to information; they can sort out what will be needed in the lawsuit much better than you will be able to. The information that they find may be used to bolster certain parts of your case. In addition, some types of information can also be used to predict what kinds of arguments will be brought against your case.

Be sure to keep copies of all the information that you give your lawyer, though, in case something terrible happens like a fire at the law office.

Do what is asked . Not only should you do what your lawyer asks you to do, but you should also do it well. At the beginning of your legal representation, your attorney will most likely ask you to write down everything that has happened up until you hired your attorney. They do this for many reasons, but perhaps the most important is to make sure that they file your case on time. Often, if you do not complete this timeline, the lawyer may miss crucial deadlines that could stop your case before it starts.

Get requested information . You will often have better and easier access to certain types of records and information (such as medical histories and reports) than your attorney will. If your lawyer asks you to obtain any of these documents, you should do so as quickly as possible. Remember, the law typically establishes tight deadlines that have harsh consequences if not met.

Respond to your lawyer quickly . As just mentioned, there are numerous deadlines in any case that must be met by your attorney. If your lawyer asks you to do something or get a document, he or she probably has a very good reason for asking you to do so. If you cannot respond in a timely manner to your attorney (perhaps you are working out of town for work for two weeks), be sure to tell your attorney about your situation. It will look much better for your case if your attorney is able to ask for an extension of a deadline rather than just missing it with no explanation.

Know your schedule and tell your attorney. When working with a lawyer on your lawsuit, you will often need to be in attendance or participate in many parts of your case. For example, in a personal injury case, you may be called upon to answer questions at a deposition about the accident that injured you or about the extent of your injuries. These depositions and other procedures are often scheduled months in advance. If your work or personal schedule will call you away from town at a critical time, let your attorney know so that he or she has the opportunity to try to reschedule the procedure.

Be honest . The more open and honest you are with your attorney, the better your case will go. If you were perhaps a little bit tipsy when you were rear-ended by the truck that caused you have severe back pain, you must tell your attorney this. Even if the issue is never brought up during your case, the more that your attorney knows, the better he or she will be able to prepare for your case. It is better for you to be a little embarrassed about telling the truth than it is for your attorney to be blindsided by an argument he never considered before hearing it in court.

Ask for explanations . Sometimes lawyers get so caught up in the legal world that they forget that most people have not heard of words like " res ipsa loquitur, " "mandatory pre-trial arbitration," or " stare decisis. " If you are unfamiliar with what is going on in your case, ask for an explanation from your attorney. The more you understand about what is going on, the more you will be able to make important decisions about your case.

How to Select a Defense Attorney (with Pictures)

  1. Be cautious. Don't be drawn in by flashy marketing schemes or blanket statements that assure success. Be suspicious of any attorney who guarantees you a specific result in a criminal case before making a court appearance and before reviewing all the documents and evidence. No attorney should make promises before the case truly begins.[8]
    • Ask to examine a sample contract before signing with an attorney.
    • Be wary of attorneys who want a large amount of money up front to handle a case only through initial proceedings and not through jury trial. The lawyer should be honest about the likely outcomes of your case and should never make promises about guaranteed outcomes.
  2. Calculate the cost of hiring an attorney. The cost of an attorney is generally based on how complex a case is. Attorneys will typically ask for a retainer (payment) when the defense will most likely require the bringing in of expert witnesses or if there will be extensive motions made. Attorneys have a number of ways of charging for their work. These include flat fees, hourly rates and fees for specific parts of the case.[9]
    • Hourly rates can be the most affordable, but are also the least predictable. It is difficult to predict precisely how much time your case will take.
    • Flat fees are the most predictable but can hurt the client in cases that are complicated. Many attorneys will offer a fee agreement that offers a refundable minimum retainer but then goes up as the case goes past that amount.
    • Misdemeanor cases may cost several thousand dollars in legal fees. Felony cases generally start at $5,000 and can run much higher if the felony is very serious, such as those that involve sexual assault or homicide.
  3. Arrange a consultation. It is best to have a face to face conference to determine if you feel comfortable with the attorney. Meet the lawyer and decide if you have confidence in his skills and feel confident in his analysis of your case. Remember that a consultation is not a binding agreement. You should schedule consultations with more than one attorney to make sure you are selecting the best one for you.[10]
    • If you feel that there is something disagreeable about the attorney, you do not need to proceed with that specific attorney. There is nothing wrong with consulting with an attorney and then choosing not to hire him to represent you.
    • Put your best foot forward. You want to impress the attorney, just as much as you want him to impress you. You both need to want to work together.
    • If time allows, meet with as many as 3-4 attorneys. This will give you a choice, but is also a small enough pool to keep you from being overwhelmed.
  4. Prepare a list of questions to ask during the consultation. This will help you make sure to get all of the information that you need. It can be intimidating to meet with an attorney. By preparing questions ahead of time, you will feel more prepared and less likely to forget to ask an important questions.[11]
    • Ask about fees and payment schedules. You can also ask for a list of similar cases he has worked on.
    • You should ask the attorney what sort of trial strategy he would recommend. You can also ask about plea bargains and negotiations.
    • Ask about your alternatives. You want to have all of your options clearly explained.
    • You can ask, "Why are you the right attorney to handle this case?" The answer should give you a good idea of his plan and experience.
    • You can also say, "How quickly would you begin work? What information do you need to get started?"
  5. Determine the other members of your legal team. During the consultation, ask the attorney about his staff. You should find out who will work on your case if you hire this attorney and what their experience level is when you meet with the attorney. Attorneys generally have assistants who help them fill in the blanks of the case.[12]
    • You should ask specific questions about assistants and paralegals. For example, ask what rates they bill at.
    • Figure out how much work the lead attorney will do. What percentage of work will these other people be doing and what percentage of time will your attorney be dedicating to your case?
    • Now is also a good time to find out what would happen to your case if your attorney became ill or unexpectedly became unavailable.
  6. Discuss the facts of your case with the attorney. Find out how familiar this specific attorney is with cases that are similar to your own. Ask the attorney how he would approach your case. At this point, the attorney should be able to discuss how he will proceed. You should discuss law office communications and what ancillary services he thinks you will need, such as expert witnesses or private investigators.[13]
    • The more information you can offer a criminal defense lawyer at your initial consultation, the more accurately the lawyer can offer to represent you at a realistic fee.
    • Take your paperwork to the consultation with you. This includes bail paperwork, and any documents issued by the court, such as the charges filed against you, or arrest warrants.
  7. Allow your attorney to lead your defense. Many people feel like they understand the law. Maybe you feel like since the case involves your future, you should have a lot of input on your case. However, it is important to remember that the legal system is intricate and complex. Your attorney understands the law better than you do.[14]
    • You should feel comfortable with the defense strategy. But you should refrain from telling your attorney how to do his job.
    • Remember that you thoroughly reviewed his qualifications before you hired him. You likely picked someone qualified for the job.
  8. Communicate openly. While it is important that you respect your attorney's methods, it is also critical that the two of you establish a good line of communication. You should ask questions about anything that you don't understand. You should also make sure that you are comfortable with his strategies and methods.[15]
    • Honesty is also key to a good working relationship. Do not ever lie to your attorney.
    • In order to present the best possible defense, your attorney needs to have all of the facts. Remember, he is bound by confidentiality, so you don't need to worry about what you tell him.
  9. Get a support system. Being charged with a crime is a very emotional experience. You will likely feel scared, frustrated, and angry. Remember that it is normal to feel these, and other, emotions.
    • Explain your situation to friends and family. Tell them you will need extra support during this process.
    • Ask someone you trust to visit your attorney with you. This might provide some extra comfort for you.

Dancing With Lawyers How to Take Charge and Get Results Nicholas Carroll 9781879435032 Amazon.com Books

In this guide to taking charge of your lawyer and getting results, Carroll presents a practical client-centered approach to legal services and project management. He offers good advice to locating the right lawyer for your job, negotiating fees, and keeping the lawyer's nose to the grindstone; Carroll also includes insightful portrayals of law firm operations. Unfortunately, Dancing is poorly organized and difficult to use. It is not meant to be read cover to cover, yet no index points the reader to the section that answers his or her question. The author himself suggests browsing as a finding aid. Finally, the omission of illuminating anecdotes make this book less entertaining than it could be. An optional purchase.

Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase

This book is an easy read and a must read for anyone who is hiring a lawyer for the first time, or wants to learn how to handle lawyers better than they have in the past. It shows you how to put yourself in the driver's seat instead of being at the mercy of the lawyer. I read the book then used the techniques to deal with a lawyer I hired for an estate dispute. I not only felt in control, I WAS in control. I was the employer, and the attorney was the employee, as it should be. Excellent information if you're new to the land of lawyers, and you need one for something greater than a speeding ticket.

5.0 out of 5 starsSmart advice, no lawyer jokes.

When I was divorced last year and had to find a lawyer for the first time, this book saved me lots of frustration (and probably lots of time and money). It's very useful -- and it's even fun to read. The author's one smart guy. Everyone ought to have this book handy, because sometime, everyone has to hire a lawyer for something. Don't do it without this book.
