Where Can I Find A Holiday Letter Template To Mail To Clients From A Law Firm?
They Need The Letter To Be A Full Page And As Religion-Neutral As Possible, Is As Best As I Can Explain It. Aka They Don't Want It To Be "Too Christmas-Y"...... If You Happen To Have One Can You E-Mail It To Me? Allison22@Ymail.Com
A FULL PAGE???? I am guessing that this is a letter from "The Firm" to all it's clients, and not to be "personal" to each attorney nor client.
Gosh, whatever happened to the personal note? <wyomugs wistfully remembers the old days>
I do not really think such a template exists. However, with a bit of ingenuity and filling out, what I will "offer" to you below can be a good place to start... oh, and be sure to DOUBLE SPACE the letter, INDENT a LOT and leave good margins on top/bottom... that will help to shorten the letter a lot.
Start out with your salutation... "Seasons Greetings to you, our valued client!" Now, if they are to be addressed individually, then do so... "Seasons Greetings, Mr. & Mrs. Smith!"
Then offer them the "joy" of the season... "We, here, at Acres, Acres, and Lots Law Firm, wish to extend to you the best of this joyous season.... " fill it out with some of those "joys"... like: "... the warmth of family, the beauty of the wintry snows, the happiness of smiles greeting you, the laughter of children playing in the snow... "... and so on... be a bit creative... nostalgia is a great filler!
Next, you can add some sort of synopsis of the firm's year... "Throughout the past year, Acres and Acres has been dedicated to providing top quality, thorough, and complete legal services to you and to our community."
If you'd like, brag a bit about any "service" work the firm has done... "We helped sponsor the Walk-a-thon for Cancer Research, and, while our team may not have come in first, we're proud of the efforts they made to making the event a huge success."
Bring back the "season" theme... "In this time of giving and sharing, we would like to thank you for allowing us to give you the best of our efforts to meet your legal needs. We look forward to continuing that service in the coming year."
Then bring in the "wishes" again... "In the spirit of this happy season, we wish to you and yours the best of health, happiness, and success in the coming year. Please feel free to drop by our office and share a cookie or two with our staff." .... of course, that last part is strictly something that your office may, or may not, do! But it surely would be different and nice, right?
Now, end with the group "hug," ... "Whatever your celebration plans are this holiday season, we hope they are both merry and bright!"
And end with whatever signatures you need.
I hope this helps! Oh, and hope YOU have a happy and merry season, too!
Have a polite day.
How Useful Are Lawyers During Divorce???
Going Through Tough Breakup. As Difficult As Things Were, We Were Able To Work Through And Agree On A Mutual Beneficial Parenting Plan. Only Had To Have Lawyers Review But Appeared To Be Formality.
Now Somehow, Parenting Plan Is Not Ok Anymore, Finanicial Negotiations Havent Even Commenced Yet, And My Wife And Me Are Deteriorating Further Day By Day. Each Taking Hard Stance As Per Lawyers Instructions, And Everything Seems To Be Going To The Shitter...No Trust Anymore, Both Walking On Eggshelss At Home All The Time, Etc Etc.
We Both Agreed On Prenting Plan, We Both Agreed To Split All The Belongings And Bank Accounts Up, Only Need To Work On Home And One Other Issue.
But Ever Since Lawyers Were Introduced To The Situation, Emotionally And Future Friendship Has Taken Major Toll.
All Advice We Get From Lawyers Are Almost Designed To Cause Conflict And Pain.....
Lawyers are in it for the money, the more you two fight the longer the divorce drags on and the more money they get. You should sit down with your spouse and talk through it again, when you come to an agreement you are both happy with you should also agree not to take further advice from your lawyers. Your money would be better spent on your children than to lawyers. It sounds like you were on good terms, so there is a good chance you can talk this through.
Everything About International Law?
Rationale And Features Of International Law; International Charters, Members Of The International Community
Everything about international law would (and does) fill several hundred volumes of text.
Even attorneys -- after law school -- study an additional year or two to get a masters in international law -- and that just covers the basics.
But summed up in 50 words or less -- international law is about treaties. Because one country cannot make another do something. That's called sovereignty. So, the only way one country can bind another is by mutual contract -- called a treaty -- where countries agree to limit themselves. The rest is politics.
How Much Can A Social Security Disability Lawyer Charge?
A Local Social Security Disability Attorney Won My Friends Case. The Backpay Percentage Wasn'T Enough To Cover The Lawyers $1500 Minimum Fee. Social Security Told Us That The Lawyer Couldn'T Charge More Than 20% Of The Backpay. The Lawyer Is Asking For $500 More And Threatening To Turn It Over To Collections. Can They Send This To Collections Or Are They Bluffing? Opinions?
disability lawyer or non attorney representative can receive 25 percent of a claimant's total backpay from ssd and ssi. However, this is capped at a maximum amount. As of 2007, the maximum fee that a representative, lawyer or non lawyer, can receive in compensation for their services, is $5300.00
ADDED: contingency fee contracts prepared by lawyers also include an option for the lawyer to file a "fee petition." Although this may come as a surprise to you, your fee contract is not just between you and your lawyer. The Social Security Administration has to approve any fee arrangement between claimants and their lawyers. In a fee petition, your lawyer may request more than 25% of past due benefits because of an unusual amount of work or time involved in your case or because your case did not involve past due benefits.
If your lawyer's fee petition is approved, you may have the responsibility to pay your lawyer directly. I would ask the lawyer to prove to you the extra amount was approved and if it was you have to pay it.
If I Want To Become A Corporate Lawyer...?
Would An Undergrad Degree In Legal Studies Suffice? If Not, What Courses Do I Need To Take? I Am Looking For Online Undergrad Alternatives, And Have Been Home Schooled For A Very Long Time So I'M Unsure What Kind Of Classes I Would Need To Take
You cannot become a lawyer in the US without a law degree, which is generally three years of school after you've completed a bachelors.
You can attend law school with any major, but a legal studies degree is pretty suspect, especially if it's online and you're looking at a top school. Most law schools prefer traditional academic degrees and majors - political science is a popular one, but not necessary (and not really the best option, either). Law schools tend to love hard science majors because they usually know how to think logically and tend to do better on the LSAT.
Your undergrad school/degree is important if you're aiming for corporate law. The BigLaw firms hire overwhelmingly from T14 schools, and you'll have a tough time getting into corporate law if you're not a top student from a top school. And those top schools are hard to get into with a legal studies degree from an online school. If by corporate law you mean in-house counsel for a corporation (which many people incorrectly believe is corporate law) you'll need at least 10 years experience before most of those jobs will be open to you. Your law school will matter for the jobs that get you experience, but less so as you move forward.
Regardless of where you go to school you'll want to take lots of writing-intensive courses and courses that focus on logical reasoning. These are usually math and hard science classes, but not necessarily. Avoid career-oriented classes like paralegal courses and stick with the major academic subjects. You'll also want to build a nice resume with summer jobs and academic internships to strengthen your application. Once you get to school your school's law school adviser (check LSAC.org if you don't know who it is) can help you pick the best classes and major so that you're prepared.
Mexico Wedding- Do We Need Our Prior Divorce Decree?
My Fiance And I Will Be Married In Mexico In 6 Weeks. Every Site Reads That Different Documentation Is Needed. Our Wedding Consultant Is On Vacation Until 2-15 So I Am Unable To Find Out What I Need. We Are Both Previously Divorced. I Am Not Clear On If We Need Our Divorce Papers With Us. When I Was Divorced I Went Back To My Maiden Name. Does Anyone Have Any Advice For Me?
You will only need to provide your divorce decree if you are getting legally married in Mexico. If instead, you are only having a religious or non-denominational ceremony then you do NOT need to present your divorce decree as this is not a legal wedding.
To further clarify, legal weddings are performed by a government appointed Judge while religious or non-denominational ceremonies are performed by a Minister, Officiant or other. If you were having a legal ceremony, then your wedding consultant should have already sent you the marriage application and should have requested copies of your passports, birth certificates and divorce decrees (at least one year must have passed since divorce). You would also need to have blood work done upon your arrival in MX. You don't mention being asked for these documents, which leads me to believe that you are probably having a non-denominational ceremony.
Congratulations on your wedding!
