Need Advice On Finding A Laywer/Law Firm Specializing In Estate Litigation In Multiple States...?
My Grandmother Passed Away Without A Will A Couple Months Ago And I Need To Find A Lawyer To Settle Her Estate. My Father Was Her Only Child And Both Him And Her Husband Are Deceased. I Was Informed That I Am Her Next Of Kin (Correctly? Incorrectly?) In Accordance With Pa Law. She Had A Brother Who I Am Not On Speaking Terms With.. I'M Not 100% Sure If He Is On The Deed But Tend To Think He Is Not.
Problem Is, I Live In Richmond, Va And The House Is In Philly, Pa. I Have Received A Tentative Offer Of $100,000 For It In As-Is Condition But Can'T Sell Without Being Made Administator Of Her Estate. I Have A Younger Brother But But I'M Fairly Certain I Could Get Him To Sign A Renunciation.
Financially, I'M Not Loaded But Not Entirely Broke. I Also Have Several $K Insurance Money Tied Up In Red Tape Right Now. Ideally I Could Find A Lawyer With Reasonable Initial Fees Who Would Be Willing To Work For A Percent Of The Profit Made From The House Sale. What Is The Best Way To Find One?
you could contact a probate attorney in your state and have him do the legwork for you, retaining counsel in pa., back draw it would lead to a shared fee agreement and nobody is really hot on that.

Should I Be A Marketing Major?
I Am Currently A Community College Student Who Will Be Transferring To Louisiana State University Next Semester. I Plan On Being A Double Major In Marketing And Art History, With A Minor In Entrepreneurship. If I Plan On Attending University Of Chicago Law School With A Focus On Commercial Litigation, Would Marketing Be A Good Choice? Or Should I Switch To Something Else?
(Besides Political Science)
Any And All Help Will Be Very Much Appreciated. Thank You.
Marketing may be an asset for Commercial Litigation, but in all honesty I don't know if it is necessarily the best background for an individual heading into Law. Majoring in Accounting, Finance and Human Resources will all provide you with a stronger background for corporate governance principles and corporate doctrines and legislation.
If you really enjoy marketing and feel as though it is something you have a personal interest in, then marketing is still a strong choice, but I'd suggest also completing coursework that will directly pertain to commercial litigation. A law school won't put a particular weighting into your major, but you will be better prepared if you've developed a strong foundation
Is This Going To Effect My Child Custody Case?
Me And My Husband Are In Divorce Process Started This Year, But He Wants To File 2008 Taxes Separately And Claim Our Child , We'Re Been Separated Since November And I'Ve Had The Child Since But Is Visiting With Him Right Now, Can He Do That? And Is This Gonna Effect My Custody Issue?
Since you two were together for the majority of the year, if he was the primary income earner, than yes he may be able to take the deduction, but it will have no affect on your custody case. The best results would be for the two of you to file jointly with any return going into a trust fund to be divided according to the division of assets in the divorce.
As for the child, why not do what's best rather than what's best for you two?
Bird Nest Custody
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
What Do You Think Of Defense Attorneys?
How About Jose Bias? I Asked My Cousin Who Is A Da This Question And I Was Surprised By Her Answer. She Told Me That &Quot;She Doesn'T Respect The Ones Who Only Take The Defendants Money And Do Not Practice Good Law.&Quot; What Do You Think Of Criminal Defense Attourneys?
Every Defendant has the right to a lawyer. They are just doing their job of providing this Constitutionally guaranteed service.
I know a lot of DA's and Defense Attorneys, and most have nothing but the utmost respect for one another, because they understand the system requires them both to be there, and the cases aren't personal for any of the lawyers. DAs know the defendant is going to have an attorney, why would they hate the attorney simply because he is doing his job?
Most people who think defense lawyers are the scum of the earth tend to not understand the criminal court system, and also seem to think that these lawyers honestly believe all their clients are innocent (here's a hint, they know that 99% are guilty, but still entitled to a legal defense).
Would Someone Help Me With Some Legal Advice?
Ok, So My Ex And I Had A Big Fight Over Text, Long Story Short, I Screwed Up And Now She'S Threatening To Charge Me With Telecommunications Harassment. She Hasn'T Done It, But She'S Said That If I Say Anything About Her To People She Will.Charge Me, She'S Blackmailing Me With A Lawsuit To Keep Me From Saying Anything About Her. I Understand The Laws On Slander And That I Have To Proove That What I Said Is True If She Goes For A Slander Case, We'Re Both Under-Age And Unfortunately We Sent Pics To Eachother... But The Pictures Prove My Case True...If Her Texting Records Got Subpoena'D Would She And I Get Charged With The Whole Child Pornography Crap? And Also, Could I Charge Her With Blackmail For What She'S Doing Using The Suit As Leverage For Me To Keep My Mouth Shut, And If So Would It Render Her Harassment Charge Null? Also What Is The Limit Of Time She Can Charge Me With The Harassment? I Mean How Long Does She Have After The Harassment Occured To Charge Me?
"...if her texting records got subpoena'd would she and i get charged with the whole child pornography crap?" - YES since she is a minor.
She's not blackmailing you, she's being a teenage girl. Good rule of thumb is to not talk about other people in general.
She has whatever time the statute of limitations is, probably a couple of years. No, one charge doesn't make the other null. That said, a text argument does not constitute harassment.
Just shut up and leave her alone. What good could possibly come of you talking about her even if she DIDN'T have this text stuff? None. Find a girl who is not psycho.
Am I Entitled To Legal Aid?
I Have Been Subject To A Child Maintenance Consent Order For The Last Twelve Months And I Am Now Able To Apply To Have It Reduced As It Is Way Too Much Especially Since I Am Currently Unemployed. I Have Been Told I May Be Entitled To Legal Aid With My Case. Does Anyone Know If This Is True?
Your counties court house should have a legal aid office, which usually has people there to help you with the forms. If you are very low income you can have the filing fees waived, the clerk will have those forms.
