Call your county's bar association and ask for a referral. You want an employment or labor attorney.
Tell your mother to write down everything that happened, even if it seems basic or silly. People tend to forget a lot of details once they are deposed two years later. Tell her to keep up with the journal, noting any phone calls, medical appts, etc. Hold onto any correspondence, bills, etc. too.

Is A Court-Appointed Lawyer Good Or Bad?
Ok, So My Sister Is Being Charged With A Felony(Wounding Charge) From A Domestic Dispute Against Her Bf...And Currently She Is Sitting In Jail..We'Re Trying To Work Out Getting Her A Bond Until Her Actual Prelim. Hearing In A Month....But The Courts Have Given Her A Lawyer. Right Now, We(Our Family) Don'T Have The Money To Hire A Private Lawyer...Mostly B/C My Parents Had To Hire A Family Lawyer A Week Ago, To Try To Get Custody Of My Sister'S Child...This Pending Charge Against My Sister Was Definitely In Self-Defense, And We Have Numerous Witnesses That Can Testify On Her Behalf Of What Her Bf Has Done To Her For The Past Year...
Now We'Re Worried About How Well This Court-Appointed Lawyer Is Going To Iron Out All The Intricate Details That Are Needed To Defend My Sister, And If He'Ll Spend The X-Tra Time To Make A Really Good Case With The Info We'Re Giving Him...Ive Heard That If A Person Uses These Types Of Lawyers, They Almost Always Get A Higher Sentence B/C They Don'T Do A Good Job...Does Anyone Have Any Input? Have You Had Success With Them Or Complete Disasters?
And If Anyone Knows This...What'S The Difference B/T Court-Appointed Lawyers And Public Defenders? I Was Trying To Do Some Google Searching And Some Sites Say They Are The Same, And Others Say, They Are Different??
It depends on the jurisdiction as to whether or not a court appointed lawyer is the same as a public defender. If the county has enough public defenders, then the court appointed lawyer will almost always be a public defender. If the county does not have enough public defenders, the judge can select a criminal attorney off of a list and assign that attorney to a case.
There are good and bad public defenders. And there are good and bad criminal defense attorneys. I will tell you that when I did my internship (at a county prosecutor's office), I learned that a significant number of the area defense attorneys went into private practice after they were not able to get hired as public defenders. I also saw that some of the prosecutors absolutely detested some of the private criminal defense attorneys and would not offer their clients anything resembling a good plea agreement. The criminal defense attorney got paid regardless of the outcome, so the only person who really suffered was the client.
Your sister's best bet is almost certainly going to be to stick with the court appointed lawyer. Your family will not be able to afford the caliber of criminal defense attorney you would want, and you would probably throw your money away on a minimally competent attorney who is working on a ton of other cases with little or no help. At least a public defender will have an entire office to support him/her.
(And the public defenders who are assigned to the felony cases are the ones with more experience. You won't be getting someone right out of law school.)
I Need A Good Lawyer And Dont Know How Or Where To Look. Please Help!!?
I Have A Hostile Work Enviornment Case Here That I Know Will Win In Any Court (From What I Have Heard The Type Of Company I Work For Would Just Place A Settlement Anyway), I Just Need A Good Lawyer In Or Near Rocklin Ca That Knows What They Are Doing And Will Help Represent Me. Any One With Any Real Refereneces Please Help Out.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
What Are My Legal Rights If I Find There Is A Cockroach And Mice Problem After I Signed My Lease And Moved In?
I Rented This House In Tn Well Above The Middle Of The Road Range (Paying $750) And I Found It Has Mice And Cockroaches Since Being Here. I Told The Landlord And He Came Out And Put Mice/Rat Poison Under The House And Sprayed The Inside Of The House Around The Walls And Left A Large Container Of Bug Spray For Me To Continue Spraying A Couple Times Over The Next Couple Weeks And I Guess Maintain The Spraying Monthly Or So.
I Only Rented This Place Because It Seemed Nice And The More I Am In Here, The More I Am Becoming Unhappy! I Paid 750 First Month Rent And Also 750 Deposit. I Don'T Even Want To Eat From My Dishes Out Of The Cupboard Without Washing Them First.
While Only One Or Two Cockroaches Show Up Every Couple Days - They Are There And For Sure There Are More Than A Couple Around Or I Wouldn'T See Any.
I Want My Deposit Back And To Get Out At The End Of The First Month - How Can I Do This? Help-Km
Your legal rights will be spelled out in your residential/tenancy agreement contract. The terms in this contract must be consistent and comply with TN state laws governing landlord and tenants' rights. Landlords have an obligation to make sure the rental unit is safe and habitable regarding health etc. The landlord is obligated to rid the habitat of vermin and such to make sure it remains habitable. This means taking ALL steps necessary to eliminate the problem. The question is whether or not he is taking all necessary steps to do so or if he is doing things the cheapest way possible.
Also at issue is not whether or not the landlord has taken reasonable steps to deal with the problem. At issue is whether or not the place is habitable. Since it is an ongoing problem and within his control he is not fulfilling his contractual obligations in my opinion. In my opinion the problem poses a health hazard and not just an annoyance or inconvenience to you. Explain this to your landlord, give in writing the required notice and move. It is only my opinion but the cockroaches and mice were not part of the deal and had he told you that it will be or "may" be a problem I'm sure you would have looked elsewhere for accommodations.
Bottom line? Read the residential/landlord tenancy act [or similar] for the state of TN. Then you will know with certainty your legal rights.
