This can make the entire process of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below it will be possible to limit your search to the right one out of very little time. The first task is to generate a set of the lawyers which are listed in your town that specialize in your position. While you are causeing this to be list you should only include those which you have a great vibe about depending on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their website. There you should certainly find just how many years they are practicing plus some general specifics of their success rates. At this moment your list must have shrunken further to individuals that you simply felt had professional websites and an appropriate volume of experience. You need to then take the time to lookup independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure to read the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews will give you a sense of the way they interact with their clients and how much time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, it is advisable to meet up with no less than the past three lawyers who have the credentials you are interested in. This provides you with some time to really evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and the case.

Legal For A Citizen To Perform A Sting Operation?
Is It Legal For A Citizen To Perform Undercover Sting Operations? (Drugs, Prostitution, Etc)
For Example, Can A Citizen Cruise Around With A Hidden Video Camera In Their Car, And Act As If They Are Going To Buy/Sell Drugs To/From An Individual, And As Soon As The Trade Is Made, Arrest The Individual, And Taking Them To The Police Department With Video Footage?
Some good advice above me, but I do want to add something here no one has mentioned yet.
Acting on your own authority ( not as a cop ), you videotape a drug buy, you have the perp in your custody, the videotape in one hand and the drugs you purchased for the sting in the other. You walk into the Police station and surrender all to the desk Sgt and now YOU are arrested for possession of drugs.
Although your intentions are both honorable and good, you are a private citizen acting with no legal or official authority and you walk into a Police station with an illegal substance. The Police have no choice but to arrest you.
PS....Most drug dealers are heavily armed and/or have armed lookouts. Having NO honor among thieves, they are very high on the list to get ripped off by either rival dealers or junkies. Even if you are Rambo, you could possibly be precipitating a fire fight.
Best of luck and I hope this is useful to you

Divorce Laws In Dallas Texas?
I Got Married Last Year And My Husband Started Being Very Abusive Towards Me So I Had To Leave Him. At The Time I Hid In A Hotel For A Couple Of Weeks Until He Stopped Looking For Me And Returned To The Uk From Where He Is Originally. Well We Have Been Separated For A Year Now And I Don'T Even Know Where He Is Living At The Moment. And The Only Times Iv Heard From Him Is When He Sends Me Emails Insulting Me And Telling Me Im Out Of My Mind And Mentally Sick. For The Same Reason That All Iv Gotten From Him Is Hostility I No Longer Want To Continue Being Married To Him. I Currently Live In Dallas Texas But I Have No Idea How To File For Divorce. And The Fact That Hes Not From Here And I Don'T Know Where He Is Living At The Moment Confuses Me Even More. I Would Really Appreciate Any Guidance Or Help From You Guys. Please Its Been A Little Over A Year Now And I Still Have Anxiety Attacks Because I Fear One Day He Will Come Back.
i am also from dallas tx going through a divorce. my ex spouse is also european (from france). the jerk was abusive during our marriage, threatened to hurt me and threatened to take our son away from me, he also cheated on me, which i do not understand where his abuse personality came from because he came from a very loving and caring family.
been separated for over a year and the jerk is still trying to control me in emails and phone calls. he is hostile whenever he communicates with me. he has anger problems and says he felt justified for his behavior cuz its my fault. he also calls me mentally unstable cuz i suffer from depression so he feels that i can't take care of our son. well since my son been living with me for over a year now, he is thriving and doing well!
the jerk also is an illegal immigrant, he failed to do his immigration papers when we were married. well serves him right cuz he is a procrastinator.
anyways to answer your question, if you do not have any children with this man, your divorce will probably be easy.
many lawyers offer free consultation before you hire them so you can ask how to go about getting a divorce if you don't know where your ex lives.
Car Accident? Lawyer? Insurance.. Help?!?
I Was In A Car Accident Coming Out Of My Driveway (Went To Pick Up Medicine For My Sick Mother) And A Car On The Road
Hit Me From The Side. I Had Looked Both Ways Before Coming Out Of My
Driveway As I Always Do But The Car Came Out Of Nowhere So Fast(Speeding Obviously) And Hit Me. The Lady
Called The Police And The Policeman Said It Was My Fault Because She Had
The Right Of Way. The Car Is Insured And I Have A Drivers License But The
Car Is Insured Under My Mothers Name, Therefore The Insurance Is Not Going
To Cover Her Damages. She Only Had A Minor Fender Bender That Would Of Been Easily $400/$500 Job. I Told Her I Would Willingly Take The Car To A Body Shop That I Could Afford, If My Insurance Didn'T Cover It. She Said That Was Fine. 5 Months Later I Didn'T Hear Anything From Her Till Yesterday I Received A Letter In The Mail From Her Insurance Company Stating That I Owe Them 4,105 For The Damages That Were Done. I Refuse To Pay That Much Money When Their Was No Way In Hell The Damages Were That Much. Will I Need To Get A Lawyer? Can I Get My Insurance To Pay Even Though I Am Not On The Policy? Could My Drivers License Possibly Be Suspended? And Could This Make My Credit Go Bad? I Did Take Pictures Of The Damages That Day But I Didn'T Take A Picture Of The License Plate.
How do you know that Mom's insurance company is not going to cover this? Have you notified Mom's insurance company and filed a claim with them like you should have?
Unless you are a resident of your Mothers household and Mom failed to notify her insurance company that you live with her and have a drivers license, her insurance should pay. (Even if she failed to notify them, some states mandate that they must pay anyway). I know that My company would pay. (they may later cancel me for not notifying them but they WOULD pay) Except for the aforementioned, there is not such thing, there is no such requirement that you be "listed" on the insurance policy of every car you might ever drive. That would be an impossible task and is preposterous. The rule is: Anytime you drive an insured car, occasionally, with the owners permission and have a valid drivers license you will be covered by whatever insurance that has been placed on that car.
Is This A Case Of Medical Negligence An Is There An Attorney That Will Sue On My Behalf?
My Grandmother Is 90Yrs Old And Suffers From Dementia. A Few Months Ago My Aunts And Uncles Agreed To Take Shifts In Caring For Her At Her Home. A Few Weeks Afterward They (The Aunts And Uncles) Got Into An Argument About Her (My Grandmother) Care, And One Of Her Children, Presented A False Power Of Attorney, Took Her To A Psychiatric Hospital For The Elderly. Now My Grandmother Had Never Been Violent Or Problematic Before This Indecent, But After One Night There She Was Confused, Violent, And &Quot;Wanted To Go Home.&Quot; When My Mother Found Out About This She Gave The Hospital Her Valid Power Of Attorney And Had Her Released. The Very Night My Grandmother Was Released She Was Still Confused And Violent So My Mother Had No Choice But To Take Her Back To The Hospital. The Next Week My Mother Had A Meeting With One Of The Doctors Of That Hospital (To See About Putting My Grandmother In A Nursing Home). At That Very Meeting The Doctor Told My Mother That My Grandmother &Quot;Would Have To Be At This Hospital For 7 Days, And We Would Have To Put Her On Medication 'Black Labeled' By The Fda.&Quot; After The 7 Days The Doctor Changed His Mind And Wanted To Keep My Grandmother For Another 20 Days. When My Mother Disagreed To His Proposal,L He Presented Her With A Blackmail That If My Grandmother Was Taken From His Care He Would Make It Impossible For Her To Be Admitted To A Nursing Home. Despite What The Doctor Had Said My Mother Took My Grandmother From Under His Care, And Tried To Have Her Admitted To Multiple Nursing Homes. When The Nursing Homes Would Not Admit My Grandmother They Said That She Would Have To Be Readmitted To The Hospital We Had Taken Her From Because Of What The Doctor Had Put In Her Medical File.
(Sorry For The Punctuation).
I believe any attorney can win that case. It is a no brainier. Try to get proof of what he said, even if it means having another meeting with a tape recorder in your pocket.
mnwoman...it is the point that the grandmother came back violent...they don't have good medical care. Many places that deal with the elderly have proof of abuse to patients. Point it you need to loko at it other than just facts but individually
Construction Law - Submittals?
I Work For An Electrical/Low Voltage Contractor. I Am Working On A Project For The City And With Past History With Working With The City, They Have Never Wanted To Own Up To Any Changes And Expect The Contractor To Pay For Everything.
I Recently Submitted A Submittal Package On Light Fixtures And The City Reviewed Them And Approved Them. I Ordered The Material And Had It Stored In Our Warehouse For Installation. 1 Day Before Some 8&Quot; Recessed Trough Fixtures Needed To Be Installed The City Told Me They Wanted Louver Lenses And Not Acrylic. I Told Them This Change Would Come At A Cost, Since Louver Packages Tend To Cost More Per Fixture And They Claimed I Was In The Wrong, Because They Intended For A Louver Fixture Even Though The Submittals They Approved Clearly Displays An Acrylic Lens.
Another Issue That Resulted With The Same Fixtures Is The Length Of Some Of Them. The Fixtures Come In 2', 3', And 4' Sections, Or They Come In 6' And 8' Sections By Combining 2 Fixture Housings. They Claimed In An Addendum Before My Bid Was Due &Quot;The Fixtures Should Fit The Maximum Possible Length According To The Specifications&Quot;, But The Specifications I Received Didn'T Have A Specific Length, Only Said What Wall They Should Be Placed On. I Had 6' And 8' Sections Clearly Displayed In My Package That Was Approved. We Come To Find Out The 8' Section Won'T Fit And They Want 7' (3' And 4' Section) And Are Claiming I Am In The Wrong. On The Other Spectrum, The Distributor Gave My Vendor The Wrong Pricing For These Fixtures And Said They Will Own Up To The Original Mistake, But I Will Have To Purchase Full Priced Fixtures For Any Changes In Work. What Was Originally An 8' Fixture For $300 Would Now Cost $530 For A 7' Fixture.
What I Am Asking Is, How Much Weight Does My Submittal Package Have That I Turned In? The Project Was Only $20K, But The Change From An 8' To 7' Fixture Will Cost $1500 And We Would Take A Huge Loss On The Project. It Seems Wrong That The Contractor Has To Take The Hit When Both The Distributor And Owner Made Very Large Mistakes On This Job.
Any Insight Will Help.
If it was specified, the party falling short of the spec is financially responsible. Your submittal package should have binding language that reflects that concept.
You mention "huge loss", but $1500 may be the cost of securing your future shortlisting in projects with this client, going forward. If I told you that I (as an agent) could *guarantee the successful close* of this deal at the price you had otherwise bid, would you pay me for that service? If no, then the answer is simple:walk away.
I have always padded my bids for municipalities and government projects, especially when I see that they don't have much experience in my specific industry; it is unfortunate that the general "impedance mismatch" between consumer and supplier in these situations incurs a lot of babysitting. The extra compensation makes it more palatable.
