A lot of individuals do not think about finding a lawyer till they are in desperate need. The lawful problem may possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a felony condition you want to be defended on. Companies want attorneys as well, regardless if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unjust business tactics. Tax law firms are also effective while dealing with government challenges. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A big, full service law firm has many legal professionals with various areas of experience, so based upon on your personal legal issue, you can immediately retain the top legal professional to match your current need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is most effective to obtain a lawyer you can believe in. You want one with a very good track record, who isfrank, productive, and wins cases. You really want to have assurance that they will defend you thoroughly and bill you reasonably for their services. Sometimes a recommendation from a close friend or business affiliate can be valuable, having said that you should keep your options open and review all the firms accessible, simply because when you require legal help, you need it immediately and you need the very best you can afford to pay for.

What Does Legal Aid Mean?
Depends on where you are in the world.
Generally speaking, it's government funded legal assistance available to those who have income near the poverty level.
Legal systems can be complex for people to understand on their own. In order for the legal system to be "fair," there's some basic assistance for people who truly cannot afford an attorney, but still need to live daily life. An abused housewife who has no money under her control yet needs to file for divorce as she flees to an abuse shelter is a classic example. Or it can be a bit absurd to expect an individual going homeless and filing for total bankruptcy to have to pay an attorney $1000 to help them not mess it up. The legal system loses credibility if it's always only those with money who can afford to pay for "justice."
In the U.S., it's civil legal assistance only, meaning no criminal cases. People commonly can still get some basic assistance with things like filing for divorce and child custody, for example. This is different from the public defenders who are available for criminal cases. The services usually don't help with things like personal disputes over money or contracts. A lot of clients can be elderly and disabled.
In the U.K., the term "legal aid" can also apply to assistance with criminal cases. I don't believe they use the "public defender" term separately.
It's relatively rare that people get full legal representation in court, like you might normally picture attorneys doing. People commonly just get assistance with forms, advice about how to represent themselves in court, etc.
Business Law Case. Please Help.?
A Person Stole A Car From A Car Rental Agency. The Police Spotted The Stolen Car And Gave Chase. The Driver Hit Another Car, Seriously Injuring That Driver. The Person Who Stole The Car Was Fled And Not Caught. The Injured Person Sued The Rental Agency For Negligence For Not Keeping Tighter Control Of Their Vehicles. Is Budget Rent-A-Car Liable For The Injuries To The Plaintiff? Why?
This is NOT a business law case. It's a tort case. You may have the case in a business law class, but business law in the legal profession refers to laws regulating business.
It sounds like you want people to do your homework for them. Follow the basic law question pattern. Set up your answer as IRAC, issue, rule, analysis, conclusion. The issue is whether or not Budget is liable. Figure out the laws, cases, contract issues, etc., that apply. Then discuss how the rules/laws apply. Then draw a conclusion.
You can't expect us to answer that question, do your homework for you. That's not how you succeed in business.
You would have to discuss issues, which are unknown from your description, like where they keep keys, how the guy stole it, what kind of precautions against theft did they have, liability in a negligence case, etc.

You should get yourself a good divorce lawyer whose worked with military couples or something to that effect. Honestly, based on your situation that's the best legal advice I can give you (as a lawyer). The legal representative will have to go through everything with you. The assets, you're going to want to get copies of all of his online indiscretions. Don't tell your husband you know about this if you can until you talk to your lawyer. Because you want to get a clear record of what he's doing, so keep it a secret the best you can for the time being. Once you've spoken to your lawyer, & acquired enough information to build a case you will be able to serve him with papers & confront him. Don't seek out counsel that is appointed to you for free because they won't focus as hard on the case. You could even look for lawyers who specialize working with veterans tell them your story & they will be sympathetic to your story & help you out (at a reduced rate usually or they'll allow for you to pay later or make payments if you need assistance).
Basically, you need to talk with your lawyer about the s.t.d. he gave you. Because legally he can go to prison for transmitting that disease to you (it's considered attempted homicide). Some guys get charged for it pretty steep, others not so much. You'll be glad you did it though, because it means any people he encountered on the net (the courts will go through his computer/records) will be contacted so they know they are sick as well. I understand you don't want revenge, don't view this as revenge. You must take legal action against him because it is justice & it could potentially save other people's lives, & others from exposure. It will also help you in your court case if he gets any conviction (he'll probably spend 2-6mo. in jail if he knew he gave it to you, nothing if he didn't just has to surrender a list of all of his sexual partners). It could help you get the military benefits long term like you deserve. You can prove he is the one who transmitted the disease, because you have had no other partners, your computer recorded when you went through his e-mails, & your doctor recorded when you sought medical attention/testing. You also have gone on regular visits to your doctor I'm assuming. They usually ask you "how many sexual partners have you had." and they recorded that information. You have a witness to the statement that you made to your doctor saying you were only with your husband (hopefully on more than one occasion up unto the time of testing). So that proves you had no knowledge until you looked into his past, which definitely helps your claim he was your only partner, thus the only person to expose you to the disease. he also will have told his doctor about the disease inevitably. So he'll be on record saying that he got it from someone else, or at least got it before you contracted it (you might have a clean pap test that you took, after he contracted the disease). Additionally, he will probably admit to giving you the STD to his own detriment. Especially if he thinks he'll get a lesser sentence (having a good lawyer negotiate for you helps).
Honestly, I hate to say this but this is what I tell my daughters. My brothers, father, & grandparents all were military men. I was in the marines myself. What you have to understand is the military literally brainwashes these guys. I mean it. Not in any light manner. We have to exercise listening to drill instructors tell us "your girlfriend is back home getting plowed by your best friend, but she looovess you boy." I mean can you imagine what that does to a guy who thinks he's in love? to boot he's going to have to watch his pals get letters from girlfriends & wives, divorcing them or breaking up. Hear stories of men going home & catching their girl in the act. He expects you to be cheating, so he thinks it's only natural. At the marine corps base in California they brought us bus loads of prostitutes weekly & the base is located right on a beach where hookers run even trannys. So it's no surprise that your soldier boy turned out like so many of the rest. I'd be willing to estimate, at least over half of my room mates contracted an std from prostitutes who were brought in or just partied with us on base. & it doesn't matter if you're at a base in california, hawaii, or even over in germany or iraq. This is commonplace. There needs to be entertainment for these soldiers, & they provide it for them. So my suggestion in the future is to stay away from military men. I understand you caught yours searching for women online, but I'm willing to bet his infidelity started out on base.
Don't worry about the disease, or being unwanted. This is part of your acceptance process. There are plenty of people out there who are still willing to love you, have sex with you, and accept you. It sounds like you were inexperienced (no offense) in love & sex to begin with (only having 1 partner), so I can tell you right now don't worry about it. You just have to find the right person.
Best of luck!
Where Do I Go To Find A Pro-Bono Bankruptcy Lawyer?
I Have 20K In Debt And Have 90 Dollars In My Bank Account. I Lost My Job As Part Of A Lay Off And Have No Means To Pay Off This Debt. I Want To File Bankruptcy Because Creditors Are Harassing My Entire Family (Even People That Live In Another State). I Don'T Have Money To Hire A Lawyer, Nor Do I Know How To File Myself.
I Live In Northwest Ohio If That Matters.
You can check with Legal Aid in your city and see what help they can offer you.
You can speak to a bankruptcy lawyer who will give you a consultation free. Some lawyers will roll their fees into the bankruptcy if you are doing a Chapter 13.
You can go to one of those "We The People" or "Legal Zoom" types of sites/places and file yourself, but, there is a fee.
The truth is, you are NOT going to get a lawyer who will just give up hours of their time to help you file bankruptcy. Do you realize the debt lawyers come out of school with? More than your 20k! Try about 100 to 200k. Just like you , they have to make money to pay their bills, so they should be compensated for their time and expertise.
Another thing you can try to do (and the bankruptcy court would require you to do this anyways) is contact a local chapter of http://www.nfcc.org. They are a non profit credit counseling agency that can help you organize your bills and stop the creditors from calling you. They are not a debt settlement or consolidation company, and I would advise to stay far away from those anyways.
If you do not want these people calling you, you can send them a letter demanding they stop calling. The problem with that, is they will stop calling, but may move to sue you.
Do You Think The Child Support Guidelines Are Unfair To Fathers?
I think that it can be, but the system has been corupted. A few too many bad apples in the beginning have ruined it for the rest of the country. I'm in OH, my husband pays support to two different women for children that were way before my time. Since he has two different cases we deal with two different child support offices. One of them is GREAT! They treat us fairly, they do everything appropriately, answer all our questions, don't treat him like a ahole, keep on top of case files, update things regularly, you know do their job. The other office however will take 6 months to fix a mistake that the other office did in a week, take 4 months to update something that the other office did in a day, treat him like he's the worst person on earth, never answer his questions, we have to contact them to keep ontop of the case file otherwise they won't do it, & they are absolutely the meanest most hateful people on the planet. He gets along great with one of the ex's, but the other ex is one of those money grubby butt-heads who doesn't care if he ever gets to see his son, moves around the state on her own whim, deny's visitation & try's to get every penny from him that she can. I'm not saying that the child doesn't deserve money to be taken care of, but she's the kind who lives in 1k a month for rent apt, always drives the newest vehicles, marries a million dollar man then quit's her job to raise the support, then divorces him 4 months later & wonders why she has no money. It's women like that, that ruin what the support system is for. And I also think it's unfair to allow the custodial parent to not have to "prove" anything. When we've done modification reviews in the past we had to provide paper proof of "everything", birth certificates for other children, marriage licenses, tax statements, etc. When we forgot a proof, they wouldn't include it in the figures until we gave it to them. But when she fogot a proof they asked her for it, she never gave it, and she still got the deduction. But that was the messed up office as well, so it could have just been the caseworker. Sorry I'm rambling now, but in conclusion, it is & it isn't fair, I think it's more the caseworkers than the system.
Seeking Legal Advice To Appeal Child Support Modification,Help?
My Ex Husband Sought And Succeeded In Lowering Child Support, Since He Took A Minor Decrease In Pay. I Am A Mother Of 3 Children, Ages 7, 10 And 13. I Have The Credentials And Degree To Teach English In Secondary Schools. However, I Do Not Have My Certification. I Am Currently In Pursuit Of Obtaining Certification, Which Requires A Passing Score On Two Exams, Which Cost Over $100 Each. I Currently Work Part Time As A Para-Educator (Teacher'S Assistant), Earning $10 Hourly. Although I Have Sought Employment Elsewhere, I Haven'T Had Any Luck. In Addition, Being A Mother Is A Full Time Job. My Ex Husband (Currently, Reflecting His Decrease In Pay), Earns About $42,000 Annually.
When In Court, These Facts Were Discussed And I Feel The Judge Made An Unfair (And Biased) Call On Lowering The Child Support From $120 To $80 Per Child/Week. This Judge Questioned Why I Wasn'T Teaching,Etc. When I Have Had The Credentials For Over 10 Years. I Answered That I Never Pursued It Since I Started My Family And Got Married (To Him). I Have Been Busy Caring For The Children Over The Years And Am Currently In Pursuit Of Obtaining My Certification As I Am Taking The Prerequisite Exam In July. The Judge Unfairly Based My Salary As That Of An Entry Level Secondary Teacher, $3,660 Monthly.
As A Result, The Support Went Down And I Will Continue To Struggle Financially. I Want To Appeal This. Any Suggestions From Legal Counsel? I Appreciate Your Help, Thank You.
Honey, see what you can find out from some legal aid facility to ask them to steer you in the rite direction. I understand your plight, I KNOW for a FACT you are an honest person. I also know ALL the grief you've been put thru over the past many months form this poor excuse of a person. I DO understand & hope you can get help somewhere. I don't know IF Family Court would be able to help you with this situation, but it sure would be worth a try as a Judge does preside over that court. I'm with you 100%...Bless you & I know you, you're a go getter & will do what is the RIGHT thing to do as you are an HONEST person. I know a LOT more about you than a lot of others...the best, honey...:)
