The majority of people do not think about obtaining a law firm till they are in desperate need. The lawful dilemma might be personal, like family law, for a separation or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a felony condition you want to be defended on. Firms require attorneys as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unjust business tactics. Tax law firms are also beneficial while interacting with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A huge, full service law firm has many legal professionals with distinct areas of abilities, so based on your own personal legal issue, you can instantly retain the very best legal professional to satisfy your existing need without having to start your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to obtain a lawyer you can have confidence in. You really want one with a good record, who isstraightforward, effective, and wins cases. You need to have assurance that they will defend you properly and charge you fairly for their services. Sometimes a recommendation from a buddy or business affiliate can be practical, even so you should continue to keep your options open and evaluate all the firms available, because when you require legal support, you need it instantly and you would like the best you can afford.

Going To Give My Deposition For A Slip And Fall Case....Any Help, Or Hints??
Speak with your lawyer, not a bunch of strangers! Your lawyer is being paid to represent you (that includes being paid on contingency), so he should earn his money. Your lawyer should have already made arrangements for a deposition preparation session to prepare you for the deposition. In a simple slip and fall case, deposition preparation can take as little as a couple of hours.
More importantly, because we are not your lawyers, anything we tell you here would be discoverable at your deposition! One of the first questions you will be asked after you are sworn in is "what did you do to prepare for your deposition?" and your posting at Yahoo answers should be part of any truthful response.
How Do I Know About My Dui Hearing Date, Police Report After 1St Offense. Any Website For Lawyer Ratings ?
I Was Arrested For 1St Offense Dui After A Single Car Accident In Ca. No Body Was Hurt In It.I Was Taken To Hospital & Released In 2 Hours From There. There Officer Gave Me Pink Receipt For Dui Suspended Licence Which Says I Can Apply For My Dmv Hearing In 10 Days. Can Somebody Tell Me Are There Any Criminal Charges Against Me. I Have Hired A Lawyer Who Says That He Has Filed For My Dmv Hearing But He Did Not Give Me Any Date(Saying It Will Probably Happen In One Month).Also How Can I Know About My Court Hearing Date & My Police Report. My Lawyer Seems To Be Very Secretive Saying I Dont Have To Worry About It & It Will Take About 6 Months.
You can call the county clerk(criminal office) about any court dates.
Yes criminal charges were filed against you. That DMV hearing is probably about you obtaining some kind of restricted license until your case is finalized.
They probably ran a blood test and determined your alcohol level while you were in the hospital. Find out what it was and whether you were over the limit. If you were over the limit the only argument you can make is that the machine/labs were faulty.

Wa State Custody Laws?
Unmarried. Share An Infant Child. Having Relationship Issues. Want To Leave, But A) He Won'T Let Me; B) He'S Threatening To Take Her Away And Making The Separation Ugly.
She'S 4Mths Old
He Is Not On The Birth Certificate, But She Does Have His Last Name (Went To Purchase Her Birth Certificate And Saw That His Name Was Not Listed). To Get His Name Listed, We Need To Have A Notarized Affidavit Of Paternity
He Did Not Know, Nor Has He Filed An Affidavit Of Paternity
On Some Miscellaneous Hospital Documents, He Is Listed As Her Biological Father And I Want To Say That He Signed Something Attesting To That
According To The Pierce County Sheriff'S Department, They Cannot Take Physical Custody Of Her, From The Parent She Is Physically With, To Give To The Other Parent.
If They Are Called Into A Domestic Situation, They Will Take Her From Both Of Us And Put Her Into State Care Until The State Orders Some Type Of Decision.
The Only Thing I Can Do Is File A No Contact Order For The Both Of Us, Until A Parenting Plan Is In Place
Seeing As How He Hasn'T Filed An Affidavit Of Paternity, Nor Is He Listed As Her Father On Her Birth Certificate...What Rights Does He Have? What If I Choose To Leave The State? What Can He Do?
I Do Not Wish For The Situation To Be As Such, But I Won'T Have Him Retaining Physical Custody Of Her If He Won'T Let Me Have Her Back After A Visitation.
She Was A Miracle Surprise Baby For Me. I Wasn'T Supposed To Be Able To Conceive, But I Did. She Is Very Likely To Be The Only Child I Will Have Due To My Age And Fertility Issues. She Is Still Currently Nursing And Refuses To Eat By Any Other Method, Believe Me, Many People Have Tried. So At This Time, Anything Beyond 2.5-3Hrs For A Visit Is Inconceivable. He Thinks That If I Leave Him, He'Ll Just Come Over Every Day And Talk Me Into Coming Back.
He Does Have A Tendency To Get Verbally And Physically Dominant Over Me (Ie Not Letting Me Leave, Taking My Phone And Keys, Blocking Me Into Areas, Pushing), But Wouldn'T Hurt Her. There Is One Report Of Domestic Violence Reported With The Police A Few Years Back, Where He Had Gotten Extremely Drunk And Very Physically Violent Towards Me - But I Had Managed To Leave. My Sister Had Called The Police. They Arrived. My House Was Damaged. He Had A Bite Mark On His Arm From Me From When He Tried To Put Me Into A Choke Hold. They Took A Picture Of His Arm. I Didn'T Go To The Police And File An Actual Report. Nor Did I Go To The Hospital, But I Did See A Chiropractor, And Friends And Family Had Seen Me. I Believe My Mom Took Pictures - But The Bruising Wasn'T Overly Physically Apparent - He Did More Tossing Me Around Like A Rag Doll, And I Had Whiplash From Being Thrown Around. I Forgave Him Because He Was Super Intoxicated (And He Had No Sense Of Reality At That Time), And He Didn'T Touch Liquor After That Until His Birthday In January. He Didn'T Get Violent Towards Me Again. He Did Have The Police Called On Him Because He Threatened The Neighbor, Threw Our Trash Can Into His Yard, As Well As Our Recycling Bin. I Was 5Mths Pregnant; Couldn'T Control The Situation; And The Police Escorted Me Out For My Own Safety. He, Once Again, Hasn'T Touched Liquor.
He Loves Our Daughter, But He'S Not Very Hands On. When He Is Interacting With Her, He Is Phenomenal. But As For He And I, It'S A Very Bi-Polar Relationship, And Has Become Increasingly Toxic Emotionally For Me. I Wouldn'T Mind Him Visiting Her And Etc. I Just Don'T Want Her Used As A Tool, So I Have To Take Measures To Prevent That, And Protect Myself. She Is My Priority.
So Please Post If You Have Any Knowledge Of What I Can Do. I Don'T Need Anyone Stating That I'M Retarded For Staying With Him In The First Place After Our First Physical Domestic Situation, I'M Pretty Aware.
If you two aren't living together and there is no order of visitation, stop letting him see your child immediately as if you don't, he may not give her back and he may file for custody himself.
If you two are living together and your family is not in your city or out of state, when he has gone to work, call your family COLLECT and ask them to come and get you. And then again when he has gone to work, pack up, and take your kid and go home to your family, preferably out-of-state. Unless he has a court order of paternity (with paternity dna test), he can do nothing to stop you and he certainly can't stop a single mother from leaving the state as for all the court knows, you could have slept with a hundred different men (no offense intended).
Don't argue with him and don't tell him (or anyone else) that you are going. Just do it. And make sure you forward all your mail and disconnect all utilities that are in your name or he will just run them up. Also close any bank accounts and credit cards that are in both your names. And don't leave anything behind that he can use against you (think id theft, etc.). (Nearly forgot...wipe the computer you leave behind so he can't track you....3-8 times wiped with eraser should do the trick. Buy a new computer at your end destination (ditto cell phone) and change your email, facebook, etc. accounts.)
Then when he tracks you down, assuming he does, and that he wants his rights, you hire a lawyer and have your sole custody confirmed. And until there is a court order for visitation, don't let him have your child as he won't give her back and may file for custody himself. If you are out-of-state, make sure you are breastfeeding so the judge won't order an overnight visit....that shouldn't take place for the first two years anyway as it is important that the baby bonds with his/her mother. Good luck and God bless.
Addendum: Document all the abuse you have received from him, including the times you have had to call the cops, your trip to the chiropractor, etc. You will need it.
One Of The Best Lawyers At My Law Firm Has Been Acting Up?
I'Ve Been In The Law Business For About 20 Years, And I'Ve Known This Guy Since I Was A Child. We Started Our Law Firm Together Back In 97, It'S Been A Great Many Years Working With Him. He'S The Star Of Our Firm, He Has A 87 Percent Win Rate, And Always Brings In Customers And Money To Our Business. But Ever Since He Reached His 40Th Birthday, He'S Been Acting Very Strange. He'S Been Showing Up To Work Late, Sometimes Drunk Or High. He Messed Up A Major Case I Assigned Him Too, And As A Result We Lost A Great Sum Of Money. He'S Been Cheating On His Wife Of 10 Years With A College Student. Yesterday I Called Him To Ask Him Where He Was And If He Was Okay. He Said He Thought He Might Be Sick. When If He Had The Flu, He Said &Quot;No, I Think I Have Bieber Fever.&Quot; Then He Hung Up! Should I Fire Him, Or Get Him Help? The Guy'S Been My Best Friend For 40 Years, I Ｄｏｎ'Ｔ Ｋｎｏｗ Ｗｈａｔ Ｔｏ Ｄｏ, Ｈｅｌｐ Ｍｅ! Ｐｌｅａｓｅ!
Sounds like a midlife crisis to me...
What Are The Major Differences Between Civil And Criminal Law?
In civil law, a private party (e.g., a corporation or individual person) files the lawsuit and becomes the plaintiff. In criminal law, the litigation is always filed by the government, who is called the prosecution.
One of the most fundamental distinctions between civil and criminal law is in the notion of punishment.
In criminal law, a guilty defendant is punished by either (1) incarceration in a jail or prison, (2) fine paid to the government, or, in exceptional cases, (3) execution of the defendant: the death penalty. Crimes are divided into two broad classes: felonies have a maximum possible sentence of more than one year incarceration, misdemeanors have a maximum possible sentence of less than one year incarceration.
In contrast, a defendant in civil litigation is never incarcerated and never executed. In general, a losing defendant in civil litigation only reimburses the plaintiff for losses caused by the defendant's behavior.
So-called punitive damages are never awarded in a civil case under contract law. In a civil case under tort law, there is a possibility of punitive damages, if the defendant's conduct is egregious and had either (1) a malicious intent (i.e., desire to cause harm), (2) gross negligence (i.e., conscious indifference), or (3) a willful disregard for the rights of others. The use of punitive damages makes a public example of the defendant and supposedly deters future wrongful conduct by others. Punitive damages are particularly important in torts involving dignitary harms (e.g., invasion of privacy) and civil rights, where the actual monetary injury to plaintiff(s) may be small.
One can purchase insurance that will pay damages and attorney's fees for tort claims. Such insurance coverage is a standard part of homeowner's insurance policies, automobile insurance, and insurance for businesses. In contrast, it is not possible for a defendant to purchase insurance to pay for his/her criminal acts.
While a court can order a defendant to pay damages, the plaintiff may receive nothing if the defendant has no assets and no insurance, or if the defendant is skillful in concealing assets. In this way, large awards for plaintiffs in tort cases are often an illusion.
