The first step is to generate a list of the lawyers that are listed in your area specializing in your situation. When you are making this list you ought to only include those you have an excellent vibe about based on their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by taking some time evaluating their website. There you must be able to find just how many years they are practicing and several general details about their success rates. At this stage your list ought to have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience.

Auto Insurance, Injury Claims?
My Boyfriend Was Hit By A Drunk Driver While Working. Any Advice On The Best Way To Collect For Injury Etc.? State Of California
Your boyfriend should file a Workmans Comp claim to pay for any and all medical bills incurred in the accident. Contact the insurance company of the person that hit him and when you are ready to settle the injury claim (you have 2 years to either settle the injury claim or contact an atty and file a suit) I would try to settle the injury claim on your own to get the most money. If he has reasonable and related medical bills when you submit them to the insurance carrier, ask for maybe 5-6 times the medical bills and his lost wages. When you are hit by a drunk driver, the amount that is paid to you usually is higher than a normal settlement due to the gross negligence of a stupid drunk driver. Good luck and I hope he is ok.
&Quot;Wrongful Death Lawsuit&Quot; Wtf Is That?
I Committed A Murder Last August. I Just Went To Trial And Was Found Not Guilty Of All Charges. I Just Paid My Lawyer For All Fees Like 2 Days Ago And Was Getting Back To Enjoying Me Life. Now I Just Get Notified I'M Getting Sued By The Family Of My Ex-Girlfriend For Wrongful Death. How Can I Be Responsible For Her Death If I Am Not Guilty?!?!?! They Are Mutually Exclusive!
So I Have Not Yet Contacted My Lawyer, But Do You Guys Think This Trial Will Be Comparable To A Murder Trial? The Case Really Took A Lot Out Of Me And My Health Is Very Poor. I Feel Like The World Is Crashing...Idk If I Can Go Through The Case Again. Might As Well Settle With The Bastards
Wrongful death is the civil equivalent to the murder trial. It is not a criminal trial. You cannot go to jail as a result of it. This is where the family of the victim is suing you for their damages that resulted from the death.
A declaration of 'not guilty' does not mean you are 'not culpable'. If you are responsible for her death, then you're likely also going to be responsible for the damages that resulted from it.
In a civil case, you do not have nearly the same level of protection and rights. You cannot claim the 5th and refuse to testify. The level of proof they need to make is lower. Rather than the 'beyond a reasonable doubt', they only need to show a 'preponderance of evidence'. You are not entitled to a court appointed attorney. Evidence that may have been thrown out in the criminal trial is likely to be allowed in a civil trial.
For an example of this, see what happened with O. J. Simpson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_J_Simpson... )
Is It Illegal To Receive Legal Aid (Free Lawyer) To Defend Yourself In Court If You Are Not Eligible In Ny State?
My Fiend Is Given Legal Aid By Court However He Makes $65,000/Year. He Did Not Disclose It To The Court. Is It Ok For Him To Receive Free Lawyer? What Happens If Court Finds Out That He Is Not Eligible?
If he lied on the forms ,this person is in real , deep legal trouble with the court. Falsification of court documents and perjury.
You swear, when you sign on the dotted line, you are telling the truth on the financial aid forms submitted to the courts.Most times a public notary signs and puts their seal on the forms as well.
Lousiana Divorce Laws?
Once A Petition For Divorce Has Been Filed, Does This Mean That The Couple Is Legally Separated? And If You Are Legally Separated, Then Is A New Relationship Considered Adultry?
I was actually divorced in Louisiana. The petition for divorce is actually just the beginning. It is a process. You then have to be separated for six months from the time of filing in that Parish. Then, if you and the future ex can agree on how the monies are split up, the court will issue you a Decree or most probably a Judgment of Divorce. Then, you can begin a relationship. Be careful you do not start one before this time or your ex can use it against you in court if he finds out. However, only if he has proof that you are having sex with a new guy is this adultry.
Also, 30 days after the court says you are divorced(the date will be stamped on the Judgment) you can get married again, not before. Best of luck on starting a new clean, fresh life.
What Are The Rights To Counsel And To Represent Oneself?
it is within the U.S. Constitution that guarantee's you the right to act as counsel and to represent yourself in a court of law. I don't recommend it ,but the choice is yours under the laws of the United States and most individual states will follow that law because of the Civil Rights issues involved with it. If they deny you the right then they have violated your Civil rights and can be ordered to pay substantial amounts for damages under Federal Law.
Legal Advice -On Divorce- From Qualified Persons Only, Please.?
My Fiancee Is Trying To Divorce His Wife Whom He Has Been Seperated From For Two Years Now. We Got Together After She Left And They Were Legally Seperated. However, She Wants To Add On The Divorce Papers The Reason For Divorce Was Adultery, Which Is False. She Had A Cell Phone Plan In Her Name That He Gave Her Money For Every Month After She Left. When She Finally Turned His Phone Off She Claimed He Owed Her $300.00 Which Included Fees For The Early Termination. She Was Also Asking For Money For Her Student College Loans Which She Took Out In, Once Again, Her Name Only While They Were Married. They Were Married From July 142006-July 15 2007, Just Barely A Year And One Day.
She Says That She Wants A Lawyer And That She'S Going To Ask For These Reparations Before She Agrees On The Divorce. I Feel She Is Doing This As A Stall Tactic To Anger The Two Of Us And Keep Us From Going Through With Our Marriage. Either Way, It Needs To Be Taken Care Of And My Fiancee Claims That If She Does Go To A Lawyer That He/She Will Get Creative And He Will End Up Having To Pay The Charges For Her Lawyer And His Potential Lawyer As Well.
For People Who Were Only Married A Year, I Don'T Think A Lawyer Would Even Want To Take The Case (For Anything Other Than The Money) As I Believe It Would Never Make It To Court.
Any Advice Is Welcome And Appreciated As I Want To Get Past This And Avoid Any Unpleasantness This Scorned Female May Try To Cause. Thanks
In most states there is no fault divorce. The court doesn't want to hear your petty differences and could care less who slept with who. They will ask you to seek mediation. He will not have to pay for her attorney. The college loans may present a problem as debts incurred during marriage are usually considered joint. Using that logic he can argue that there was debt incurred for future benefit. Divorce excludes him from getting any future benefit. My advice to both of them is to sit down and come to a fair settlement and save themselves thousands in lawyer fees. It can be done. Split the property 50/50 and move on. lawyers love the battles , they get to charge lots of money and in the end it is just a settlement of property. I once ran into a lady who was divorcing and they owned two homes. Rather than settle she had spent $75,000 on an attorney and they were still not divorced. Talk about being scorned.....The courts are too busy to hear personal battles that have no legal basis.
