Does Anyone Know Of A Lawyers Number That Deals With Patent? I'M In Michigan And I'M A Graphic Designer That Wants To Incorporate A Possible Patent Logo In My Design. I Need To Find Out How To Get Permission.
Logos aren't patented, they're trade marked.
And the rule is that no company wants their product associated with yours, unless you give them money or prestige. There simply isn't a reason that say Volkswagen is going to give you permission to use their logo as part of your new logo for another product.
Louisiana Labor Laws?
Does Louisiana Follow Federal Labor Laws For Minimum Wage, Overtime Lunch Breaks?
- Federal and state laws require that most employers furnish a place of employment that is free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to - employees. In most instances, an employee may anonymously complain about an unsafe work environment and be protected against employer reprisals.
Louisiana offers a free program, called the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP), which provides a worksite safety program to smaller businesses. Businesses that satisfy specific SHARP requirements are exempt from federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) compliance inspections for a period of one year.
Workers' compensation laws are designed to compensate employees who have been injured or killed in work related accidents according to a fixed monetary scheme, without having to resort to litigation. Dependents of a fatally injured employee may also be entitled to benefits. Employers may be protected by limits placed on the amount of an employee's recovery....

Does A Family/Divorce Lawyer Have To Go To Court?
Many People Told Me I Should Become A Lawyer. I Am Currently Interested In Becoming A Family/Divorce Lawyer, But I Am Not Interested In Going To Court. Does This Field Require You To Go To Court?
Of course they do. Behind criminal lawyers, family lawyers probably spend more time in front of a Judge than anyone. All divorces have to be signed off on by a Judge, plus most divorces include custody disputes, which usually involve a Judge having to make the final decision. Family and divorce law is primarily adversarial, which means going before a Judge.
The only type of lawyers who don't go to court are in-house counsel for large companies who provide legal advice for the company and patent lawyers (which requires having a science or engineering background from college). Every other type of lawyer will be going to court at least occasionally. But family lawyers moreso than most.
Auto Accident, Need Legal Help?
In July 2009 I Got In An Accident. Being That I Was A Minor, My Mom Called The Insurance Company And Asked What She Should Do. He Was Extremely Rude And Basically Just Gave My Mom The Run Around. Now, Almost 4 Months Later, I'M Still Without A Car, And Have Thousands Of Dollars Worth Of Doctor Bills. I Called My Insurance Company Myself, Because Unlike My Mom, I'M Not Afraid To Tell Them How It Is. The Guy Told Me That I Needed To Contact The Other Lady'S Insurance And Make A Claim Through Them. So I Googled The Insurance Company To Find The Number, It'S Disconnected... What Do I Do? I Would Like To Get Something Here, I Surely Don'T Have Enough Money, Or Work Enough To Pay Off These Doctor Bills, Not To Mention This Was Not My Fault. Please, If Anybody Can Help Me. I'D Greatly Appreciate It, I Just Wanna Get This All Over With So I No Longer Have A Constant Reminder.
Did the police come to the scene of the accident? If they did, they would have to file a report.
Call your local police -- not 911, but look up the number for the local police -- and ask to talk to an officer in the traffic division and tell those people you need a copy of your report.
In that report should be the other driver's insurance information. If the insurance company number turned out to be fake, then you need to file another police report. Ask the police what to do from there.
You should also contact your insurance agency because your mom should have a type of insurance called Uninsured Motorist.
At this point, the claim to fix your car and take care of your medical should fall under UM, AND your insurance company won't take that lying down, and they should go after the other driver's insurance to get paid.
What Are The Ethics/Guidelines For Attorneys Using The Perceived Power Of Their Firm For Personal Lawsuits?
An Attorney Bought Our 65 Year Old Home Last Year And Then Threatened To Sue Us If We Didn'T Pay Him $1,000 Because There Was A Trickle Of Water In The Basement. We Did Not Disclose Any Water Problems Because We Didn'T Have Any In The 3 Years We Owned The House. We Ignored The Letters On His Company Letterhead And He Filed Suit Against Us For $2,000 Plus His Attorney Fees Even Though He Was Representing Himself. We Felt Coerced Into Settling With Him (For $1,500) Because Hiring An Attorney Would Have Cost Us More Than The Settlement And We Felt He Would Have The Upper Hand In Court If We Defended Ourselves.
This Just Doesn'T Seem Ethical To Me That He Could Utilize The Power Of His Firm To Basically Blackmail Us Into Paying Him.
What Is Our Recourse?
Breaking your question down into three pieces:
1. Ethics rules governing attorneys are different from state to state, and are, in almost all states, codified in law.
2. Ethics guidelines also vary from state to state, but there are some broad guidelines issued by professional organizations.
3. The perceived power or ability of a plaintiff's law firm is almost always a factor in a defendant's consideration of whether to settle a lawsuit, whether the plaintiff is an attorney or not. Attorneys certainly have an advantage in bringing actions on their own, in that they don't have to pay a lawyer... but very few, if any, courts will grant an attorney fees for work the attorney does on his own behalf (there are exceptions, particularly in courts in which a statutory cost allowance is provided).
If you've settled your case, you don't really have any further recourse - part of your settlement, undoubtedly, was a release barring further actions.
