Talk to your lawyer. You have a right to attach property to secure a probable judgment. Also there are provisions in the law to set aside fraudulent conveyances or conveyances to avoid creditors. Your lawyer can ask the court for an immediate or ex parte order to restrain him from transferring property during the period your lawsuit is pending. Otherwise the court may be able to order or allow him to post a bond in an amount sufficient to cover the possible judgment.

How Can I Find A Good Divorce Lawyer?
I Recently Moved To Keller, Tx (Just North Of Ft. Worth), And My Wife And I Have Decided To Get A Divorce. Unfortunately, I Do Not Have A Network Of Friends (All Of &Quot;Our&Quot; Friends Here Are Now &Quot;Her&Quot; Friends), So I Don'T Know Anybody Here Well Enough To Ask For Referrals. I Tried The Bar Association, Met With The Closest Family Lawyer I Could Find Through Them And He Was A Total Sleazebag - Made Me Feel Like I Needed A Shower After Meeting With Him. I Get The Feeling That Lawyers.Com Is Just A Paid Referral Service (Not Much Better Than The Yellow Pages).... Are There Any Other Ways To Find A Good Lawyer, Or Do I Just Need To Keep Pounding The Pavement?
Go to an AA meeting. These people can help you weed out the good ones from the bad ones. Most of them have plenty of experience in this department. And chances are there is probably one or two lawyers there looking for the business.

When Will First-Year Salaries Go Up Again For First-Year Associates At Major Law Firms?
They Went Up From $120,000 Base + Bonus (Usually $5-$10K Or So) In The Late 1990'S To $140K Base + Bonus In The Early 2000'S, And Then To $160K Base + Bonus Around 2004.
But They Have Been Stuck At That Level Since 2004. A First-Year Associate At A Firm Like Kirkland Or Debevoise Still Starts At $160K + Bonus. Where Is The Raise? Why Aren'T First-Years Starting At $180K + Bonus Or $200K + Bonus?
Remember, We'Re Talking About Some Of The Top Lawschool Grads In The Nation. These Kids Deserve Better Than A 2004-Era Salary. Why Should A New 2010 Grad From Hls Or Stanford Have To Put Up With This?
You are quoting NYC salaries. The typical first year salary for my market (Delaware) for a top tier law firm (such as Skadden or Morgan Lewis) is $140K. It costs more to live in NYC and the salaries are commensurate.
Though I am a lawyer and not at all unbiased, I think first year salaries are absurdly high already given current market conditions and will not raise again until at least 2012. While investment banking hiring has already come back from its trough, transactional law has not. There are no good M&A deals occuring right now to pad the big firm coffers, for example. All the deals are occuring under government scrutiny and thus cannot be fee'd to death. And there is an open revolt among Fortune 100 clients against paying a first year the $400/hour rate to support his $140K salary. Most of my Fortune 100 clients are demanding fixed fee agreements and similar alternative compensation models that cut hard on the junior attorney and staff rates. If you can't get the money from a client, then you can't pay it to an associate.
There is no business reason to start a first year at $200K. Any new grad in this market would be stupid to turn down $140K, the first year cannot recoup the $200K through billables, and there are a plethora of decent lateral candidates about who will accept a position in the $150K range without having to be taught stupid things like how to use PACER. Many firms are taking an honest look and wondering whether they really need a UPENN first year at $160K to run a document review when a Villanova grad in the same city that has two years experience will take $140K and be glad to have gotten it. And a lot of the baby lawyer work is being farmed out to India, meaning you don't need a high body count to get the work done.
Like the European pension system, the golden age of endlessly increasing associate salaries has passed.
If You Fire Your Current Lawyer Before You Get A New One, It Will Be Nearly Impossible To Get Another Lawyer?
This Is What Someone Said In Their Answer To Someone Else, And I Trust The Source So Would Like Clarification. Why (When Applying For Ss Disability) Would It Be Hard To Get Another Lawyer If You Fire Your Current One?
Lawyers expect to be paid for the work they do. They take cases on contingency at the risk they won't be paid if they lose, not because a client decides to switch lawyers. If you switch lawyer once what is to stop you from switching lawyers again. Lawyer 1 works for 2 years and is not paid for his work - why would lawyer 2 also risk not being paid because you decide to hire lawyer 3?
Lawyer 2 if hired before you fire lawyer 1 knows you have a legitimate reason to fire lawyer 1.
I do have a lawyer that helps me with disability related legal issues. I once asked him about the pros and cons of hiring on contingency. He told me that working on contingency takes away the incentive to get a case settled quickly. If the lawyer gets a percentage of your back pay, it suits them better to delay winning your case so the amount of the back pay (and their pay) increases. It is better to negotiate a set amount that they receive win or lose and no matter how long or little it takes.
