    I misunderstood the phrasing of 'lawyer present' and was wondering if there's some kind of cultural tradition in America where the client has to give their lawyer a present before or after the trial.

  • JJJBunney001

    This is definitely a smart idea but people need to realise context is key, as always. I hear too many story's of people pulling this move for a simple breath test or if a cop pulls you over for traffic infringements. The best thing to do in those cases is always respectfully comply with the officer at the time. At least that's how it works were I live. Trying to pretend you know the law and pull this is how people end up in altercations with police

    My country is consistently ranked one of the least corrupt countries in the world. I have not broken the law to my knowledge. I generally trust and believe in the police in my country (I don't live in the US). But I will never say anything beyond what I'm legally required to before speaking to my lawyer. The worst part is... It's not even about protecting myself. It is about not creating headaches for my lawyer.

  • silversleek

    Hey LegalEagle, this is unrelated to the video, but I wanted to know if you'd consider playing any social deduction games on your channel, such as Werewolf/Mafia/Among us. It would be very interesting to see a lawyers take on just how to keep yourself from being voted off (or killed).

    The dogs that I want to hear speak are the drug-sniffing dogs. After all, a defendant has the right to confront the witnesses against him/her. If the dog remains silent, the judge should dismiss the case and hold the dog in contempt.

    One thing I've never understood completely: If you are arrested and say that you won't speak without an attorney present, how are you expected to contact your lawyer, and if you don't already have an attorney, do the officers contact a state appointed defense attorney or are you expected to find one while you're cuffed in an interrogation room?

    I don't now if you have any experience regarding to buying houses and apartments, but at this time you should talk about the biggest frauds companies do when they sell you apartments or houses. Lately i have a lot of friends who have gotten scammed by companies since the law is very difficult to understand for people. they have no idea what they sign and what certain sentences actually mean in contracts. for example when someone buys an apartment then they do not actually own the apartment until the person, who sold it to them, has payed 100% of the debt to the bank (Even if you have paid 100% amount for the apartment but you still do not own it)

    Fun fact: Huskies don't bark (or very rarely, and then only once). They can growl, though. (Written by a former housemate-of-a-husky)

  • Miramosa

    As for why: You might misremember whatever the police wants to talk about. You might panic and (say you were being questioned about someone dead) and say you don't own a gun when the police hasn't brought up how the victim was killed yet. You don't know the law. You know the vague cliff notes of the law. The police officer is a professional witness for the purposes of the court. You lawyer knows the law. Let your lawyer speak for you so that the correct things are said at the correct time. Everything can be recorded and fuckups make your life worse. Don't talk without your lawyer present.

  • MathewWithOneTea

    "Who's a good boy?" If I've learned anything from this channel, the answer is... "It depends."


    honestly if i ever got arrested (i dont commit crimes so id be innocent) id just cry a LOT and scream LAWYER and yell and sob like for real having bpd would not be helpful there ...

    It is still a weird law. You have to literally tell the law enforcement units that u want to exercise that right. I think on this channel a while ago, a man is known to exercise the right for straight 3 hours, and then break it after that for adjusting miss-information, only later his right not to talk is presented as not obvious. BS still. But Law is weird.

    Could you do a SAW gets Layered? Specifically around John Kramer? I wanna know exactly what he would be charged with if he was ACTUALLY caught. The film brands him as a murderer however what he says in the film isnt wrong, he has never ACTUALLY killed anyone. so it'd be cool to her from a professional what he would be charged with had he of gone to caught and the films were real.

    Can you do a piece on the new Texas abortion law that uniquely allows anyone to sue anyone involved in an abortion? It looks like it has a major issue with legal standing to sue, since they’d have a hard time arguing they suffered damages personally. The legal fees part though seems to encourage people frivolously suing and closing any abortion provider due to legal fees. What does constitutional law say about this?

    There's a 46 minute video simply called "Don't talk to the police", explaining in great detail how talking to the police can screw you over even if you are 100% innocent. Talking to the police will never help you in court, nothing that you tell them will ever strengthen your case, it can ONLY weaken your case. Notably, some legal systems, like the UK, are a bit different. In the UK, there are some details you need to disclose to the police ASAP, or they will come back to haunt you. But even then, you should ALWAYS have a lawyer present.
