What Are The Types Of Lawyers?
I Am Looking For A Lawyer Who Will Only Charge You If He/She Wins The Case. Do You Know More About It? Are These Harder To Get? I Am Looking For A Civil Rights One? Any Suggestions? Websites With More Info?
Lawyers who work on a contingent fee basis only get paid if you win. Then they usually get 33 1/3% if the case settles (considered a win) and 40% if you go to trial. That may or may not include costs and fees (i.e. court filing fees, copy fees, etc...)
It would really depend on the type of civil rights case and the specific law that has been violated. There are a number of groups inclduing the ACLU that advocate for civil rights and litigate civil rights cases on a pro bono (free) basis.
It does not cost anything to call and ask, so call some attorneys in your area and ask what their fee schedule is...or look on their web-sites.
Divorce Laws In Iowa?
What Are The Divorce Laws In Iowa, And Does Anyone Know How Much It Costs? Or If Seperation Is Just Better Way Right Now, Until I Am Fully Ready?
It will depend on if you can have a civil divorce or if it will be a dirty one. But the cost of the divorce depends on many different things. Like if you have children or not. In the case of the children can you decided on some thing or will it be a fight. Look at your debt situation. It will depend on who makes the most money on how that will be split.
In my divorce we were pretty much civil on all aspects so it ended pretty cheap, mine only cost about $3,000, but I have heard of other divorces costing much more, but they also dragged it out, became really dirty with each other and all of that puts a huge hole in the pocket book. So I suggest if you can't work it out and stay together, try to do every thing as peaceful as possible, keep the proceedings as short as possible and it probably won't cost you your life savings.
Why Should The Drunk Driving Penalties Be Stricter?
Ok, So I Am Writing A Persuasive Speech On &Quot;Why The Drunk Driving Penalties Should Be Sticter&Quot; But I Can'T Seem To Find Much Information About It, Or People'S Views About It.
Could You Give Me Some Good Reasons Why The Punishments Should Be Worse?....And Maybe Some Website Links Would Be Good Too. Thanks! =)
For one thing, there are quite a few who won't hesitate to drink & drive. Call it public ignorance or a complete "society motivated disrespect for the law". However statistically speaking, when one out of six accidents in the US involve alcohol, then something has gone terribly wrong with our entire judicial system.
We all remember (MAD) (mad mothers against drunk drivers) a little something launched in the early seventies that has now failed us all, in more ways than one. It's obvious that the average drinker who chooses & is not forced behind that wheel,,, must be held accountable for their actions especially when this particular action involves a tragic car accident with injuries or even a few deaths. It's obvious that we need some tougher laws that treat any drug-induced impairment motivation to a fatal accident, as a capital crime. The cemeteries are full of innocent car accident victims, who crossed the path of a intoxicated driver & paid the ultimate price... Too much appeasement, special deals in an endless deluge of red tape has made it impossible to prosecute these first second & third offense drunk drivers. Look no further than the average attorney approved Yellow Page ad, and you will find the words (specializing in drunk driving cases) A "shameless attitude on the part of the attorney"
Once again statistically speaking, hundreds of thousands of innocent people die each and every year on our nation's highways. A direct result of those who obviously don't care for their attitude is one of selfishness, (I will do what I wanna do) said the average intoxicated driver. At the same time rich shyster lawyers who manipulate those well conceived laws to their own benefit become richer & richer (blood money) by allowing this shameful avenue of escape for any man or woman who is willing to pay a whopping $250 per hour attorney's fee ,too beat the rap. As long as there is big money as the only true motivation, nothing will change...if people were serious than we would legislate new laws and to do away with this ludicrous 1.2.3 strikes you're out nonsense.. Thus replacing that failed policy with some very harsh tough penalties for those who would use a car or truck as a deadly weapon of mass disillusionment.. Those who write our laws must look at the terrible ramifications when a drunk driver causes the death of an innocent motorist. The penalty should fit the crime with no plea bargains and no special deals of any kind...
Too those who wouldn't hesitate to drink & drive, it's a free country for now, & you can do what you want (whatever feels good) However, if you're involved in an accident while intoxicated & somebody dies as a direct result of your driver negligence,you're going to prison for a hell of a longtime...Buddy
Can Someone Help Me With Legal Advice Regarding Debt?
Alright, This Isn'T A Typical Question, It'S More About The Federal Reserve And Things Of That Nature.
So, The Other Day Someone Told Me That A Person Only Has To Pay A Debt Once, And Cannot Be Charged More Than Once For It. Kind Of Like Double Jeopardy, But For Debts.
Let'S Say That I Have An Outstanding Debt Of $10,000 To Chase Bank. If I Pay My Federal Taxes, Those Taxes Go To The Federal Reserve Bank, Which Is Owned By Jp Morgan Chase. So Technically, Isn'T The Debt To The Same Company?
If I Were To Pay $8,000 In Federal Income Taxes That Go To The Federal Reserve Bank, And I Have A Debt To Chase Bank (Which Is Owned By The Federal Reserve Bank), Isn'T That Part Of The Same Debt? Shouldn'T I Only Have To Pay The Difference, Which Is $2,000?
Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated. =)
First, I agree that the financial system is largely corrupt...but it's the big players that get away with gaming/scamming the system. The common person cannot play this game so what you describe will not work.
FYI: The Federal Reserve does not own Chase.
Are Lawyers Liars? Lawyers = Liars??..(Read Details To Understand More)?
Does Being An Attorney Mean That You Are Going To Have To Lie. (( No Matter What Kind Of Lawyer You Are)) Because I Want To Be One To Help People But I Don'T Have The Heart To Lie On The Behalf Or Lie In Order To Put Somebody In Jail That Truly Doesn'T Deserve The Time. People Are Telling Me That To Be One Im Going To Have To Lie No Matter What Kind I Am Because The Business World Are Full Of Liars..(Most Of Them Anyways)
To answer your question, consider the culture of lawyers by their field of law. The lowest levels are criminal, personal injury and divorce.
Trial lawyers, who troll the ghettos looking for frivolous law suits, are the most despicable type of lawyer- they are truly a disease, filled with hatred towards capitalism (to justify stealing from insurance companies).
Lying is only one of many negative traits of trial lawyers. To be a trial lawyer, you will have to sell your soul to the devil.
There are many honorable paths in law, just avoid the low class levels. Even among lawyers- personal injury, criminal and divorce are seen as low class bottom feeders. Look into the different specialties there are many that are not shameful like ambulance chasers.
