What Is A Litigation Lawyer?
Please Be Descriptive And Detailed To Be Chosen As Best Answer
The term used is usually "Plaintiff's lawyer." It is one who initiates a lawsuit, hoping to win money from a defendant for a variety of possible reasons. These defendants are often corporations or other big-money interests. If the case is won, or settled, the attorney gets a sizable percentage of the award. The percentage tends to increase the closer the case gets to trial. If it settles out of court, usually around 33%, plus costs and expenses. If it settles just prior to trial, or after trial starts but before it goes to the jury, then maybe 40%, if they win at trial, maybe even more. This is to compensate the lawyer for all the work that goes into trial preparation.
Some things people initiate litigation over: injuries caused by products, be it faulty can openers or cars, injuries caused by negligence, such as an employee spilling a pot of coffee on your lap, employment cases, discrimination cases, professional malpractice --medical, legal, cpa, etc. breach of contract, traffic accidents.
some litigation is filed in an attempt to change laws: such as affirmative action, voting rights act, school integration, etc.
Litigation lawyers are good at discovery: digging up the details to prove their case, and disprove the defendant's defenses, and they work very hard the entire time, preparing for trial, even though many cases settle before trial. They are knowledgeable at evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the case, and what it is worth. They must be able to be both assertive and likable, so as to not prejudice the jury against their client.
Criminal Defense Lawyers?
Top Firms Pay Lawyers $160,000 A Year. Okay. Lawyers Represent Clients, And These Clients Have To Pay Their Lawyer. If I Am A Lawyer For Firm X, And I Win A $75-Million-Dollar Lawsuit, Don'T I Get A Piece Of That? But What If I Dont Get Called For Any Cases? Do I Still Make My $160,000 Salary?
Top law firms do not hire criminal defense attorneys - that is just not their practice area. Most large law firms will practice in corporate, financial services, white collar and intellectual property. Additionally, only the top 5 or so paying law firms are paying $160k and they only hire about 20 graduates per year firm wide from the top 1-2% of the top 15-20 law schools.
A criminal defense attorney would not try a $75M lawsuit. That is the job of a civil trial attorney, Even then, the attorney that tries the case will not get a cut of the proceeds - the firm would be paid the contingency fee. That fee will have to cover all of the attorneys, support staff and miscellaneous expenses (such as copying, long distance, travel, witness fees, etc.). The trial attorney may receive a bonus (depending upon his employment arrangement), but it would be a very, very small portion of the contingency fee.
Most criminal defense attorneys are either sole practitioners or work for very small firms. In these instances, you do not get a salary, but instead you get a cut of the firm's profits. If you do not get cases, then there won't be any profits for you to get a cut. In the rare instance where you are hired on salary for the rare mid-sized criminal defense firm or the public defender's office, you will receive your salary for showing up for work, though in your first couple of years, you will most likely be the junior attorney and performing support work, not actually leading a person's defense. These types of jobs are VERY low paying - think around $40k-$50k (this is actually less than the typical salary of paralegals at a large law firm). If the firm's client base does not provide enough hours for you to work, then they will lay people off - starting with the attorneys that do not make their billable hour requirements.
Business Partner Sabotage: Chances For Success In Litigation?
My Father Wants To Sue His Former Business Partner On The Grounds That The Partner Made Numerous Negligent And Unwise Business Decisions Without Consulting My Father, Which Drained The Company'S Finances, And After Which The Partner Offered To Buy Out My Father'S Shares (Which Had Lost Significant Value). Is There Anything Actually Illegal Here? Would A Lawsuit Be Likely To Get Some Gains For My Father, Or Would It More Likely Just Amount To A Lot Of Hassle And Lawyer Fees?
"shareS"? Plural, as in actual, printed-on-paper, stock certificates? or "share", singular, as in 'percentage' of total net or gross value? As a stock issuing registered corporation, there Are rules and regulations that might well be worth pursuing and could even result in prison sentencing - But as a "simple partnership" arrangement, it's nothing more than "a messy divorce".
I Need Legal Advice My Sons Father Is A Child Support Lawyer !?
I Recently Found Out That My Son (Who Is Almost 3 ) Father Was Not My Ex But A Man I Slept With Once. He Is A Child Support Lawyer. We Havnt Truly Discussed What We Are Going To Do. He Hasnt Given Me An Answer But Says He Is Trying To Process This. He Is Married With A Child Who Is 4 Months Younger Than My Son And An Older Daughter He Had With Another Woman. I Didnt Know Any Of This At The Time. He Wants To Do This Under The Table And Wants Me To Get Off My Welfare Which I Will I Work Part Time And I Get Money From Aid To Help Take Care Of The Child. Im Concerned That He Wants To Do It Under The Table And Since I Dont Know The Law Im Afraid Things Are Going To Be A Little Messy By Not Going Through The Courts. What Should I Do?
What ever you do, do not let someone talk you into doing something under the table that you know is not right. The fact that the other party is married is probably why he is suggesting that any arrangements you make ie: child support etc. be done under the table. That is his problem/concern not yours. Do what is right for you and your child. Good Luck to you.

In My Last Relationship I Had A Problem Trusting The Guy B/C He Played Me......I Mean We Started Talking Again But Now I Dont Rly Feel As If I Can Trust The New Guy Im Talking To Which Is My Ex-B/F.......I Rly Dont Want To Get Hurt........Im Soooo Confused On Wat To Do........
Trust is a hard one, especially when your trust has been betrayed before. It takes time to trust again, but you can not make your new man pay for the mistakes of your ex-man. You have to take the chance and trust your man to not be like your ex-man. That's what love is all about... taking a chance.
The trust issues will always be there, but at least you'll be a little more wiser now.
