Are Cancer Better Lawyers?
Lol idk, im a Cancer & i would not wanna be a lawyer. I think earth, air & then Fire signs are better for that job. I see Cancers being teachers, doctors/caregivers or chefs. But im sure a Cancer can make a great lawyer with the proper education. Well any sign can for that matter.
What Does P.C. Means After A Law Firms Name?
A type of corporation authorized by state law for a fairly narrow list of licensed professions, including lawyers, doctors, accountants, many types of higher-level health providers, and sometimes architects. A professional corporation does not free an owner from personal liability for his or her own negligence or malpractice, but owners are not personally liable for the malpractice of other owners. In some states, limited liability partnerships offer this same benefit and may be more desirable for other reasons.
Social Security. To Swap Attorneys Before Or After Appeals Council?
I Am In The Process Of Moving.
Whether It'S Better To File With Existing Attorney, Then Move?
Or Move, Then File With An Attorney In That City?
Please Help Me Decide.
Even though you are moving there is no reason at this point to switch attorneys. I'd stick with the attorney you have because the Appeals Council Review is merely a paper review. No one has to appear before a judge or any other employee of the Social Security Administration. The odds of it being approved at the Appeals Council Review level are slim to none. The Appeals Council Review is the last decision to be made by Social Security. The next, and last, step of the appeals process is to file an appeal with the US Federal District Court. Why don't you talk to your attorney and ask him/her if he thinks pursuing it beyond the Appeal Council Review level would result in an approval? And if you should decide to follow through on that ask him if you think you need to get a new attorney - you wouldn't need a new attorney, for example, if you will be moving within the same federal court district jurisdiction.
However, he would probably recommend that you get a new attorney if you will be moving out of the jurisdiction. As good as he may be he wouldn't be as good as a good attorney in the new jurisdiction who would be familiar with the local (and new) social security office you will be dealing with.

You're underestimating the penalties and personal inconvenience...
Fine: Up to $5,000 (Maybe more in some states since it can be a higher penalty if there's a child in the car)
Court costs: Between $50 and $1,000 depending upon your city, county, or state court. Even more, if you go to trial and request a jury!
Attorneys fees: $1,500 minimum, or more.
Drivers License restriction, suspension or revocation depending upon the circumstances
Court-ordered driving school (at your cost) if an accident is involved
Court ordered alcohol abuse classes (at your cost...and can be as much as 1-2 times per week for several months)
Court-ordered community service hours (between 0 and 500+ hours of work for which you DON'T get paid)
Probation for 1 to 5 years (You pay the state fees for the probation officer to administer your case)
In some cities, counties, or states, you can also be ordered to do jail time for a first offense. In Phoenix, AZ for example you can be sentenced to 6 months to a year in jail for a FIRST offense! (...and when in jail, you do NOT collect a paycheck...how do you support your family?)
I Want A Civil Rights Attorney To Talk To Do You Or Anyone You Know Have Suggestions?
I Am In La And Mine Is In Chicago
Hi I live in Oklahoma and am a Pre-Paid Legal member I have had a membership for a little over a year now. With my legal plan I have been helped with a traffic ticket , my divorce ,and a debt that I was told I had to pay , but did not owe. With my membership I saved 6000.00 US. Dollars on my divorce, and 1500.00 US. On that debt, and got out of the ticket that would have cost me 250.00 US. Dollars. A Pre-Paid Legal Life Events Legal Plan SM gives you access to quality law firms for $26 a month or less. To sum this up I copped some info. From their web page. Have you ever...
Been overcharged for a repair?
Received a speeding ticket?
Purchased a home?
Tried to return a defective product?
Lost a security deposit?
Signed a contract?
Prepared a will?
Even though most people find themselves in these situations, the majority do not seek the advice or help of a qualified lawyer. Why?
It may cost too much.
They may not know where to begin.
The process is intimidating.
You only get as much justice as you can afford. If you don't know your rights, you simply don't have any! The top 10% of income earners can afford to have a lawyer on retainer and are accustomed to asking their lawyer for advice before making decisions. What about you?

You know who to call.

How Come People Always Ask Lawyers Questions That Only Cops Can Answer ?
BUT police officers are NOT attorneys nor lawyers; most often they memorize a list of laws and make up the rest as they go along, or repeat whatever they hear others say without even finding out if it's true or not. That's why they are so respectful of attorneys and lawyers and oftentimes of paralegals, too.
Cops cannot answer legal questions; they are not attorneys nor lawyers and their jobs are to enforce, not to explain legalities... nor can Notary Public personnel answer legal questions or give opinions on law matters to any would-be client or person UNLESS they ARE paralegals or attorneys or lawyers (or judges, for that matter).
Police that specialize in certain crimes are somewhat familiar (or have a working familiarity with) certain aspects of laws governing that area of the crime they specialize in. For example, police that specialize in robbery as opposed to those in homicide or narcotics... just as doctors and even attorneys are now specializing in their particular field of expertise. I work with an attorney specializes in Bankruptcy and Real Estate yet he doesn't know much about Divorce or Family Law; another attorney I often work with specializes in Bankruptcy and Divorce but doesn't know much about Real Estate. I know another attorney who sounds like a medical doctor because of his understanding of anatomy, physiology and medical terms because he specializes in Personal Injury cases; he has somehow managed to attend a few autopsies, too. But, these attorneys do NOT know much about traffic tickets or traffic court and what they know about Landlord/Tenant Court procedures is less than what I know (I used to work with the Legal Aid in organizing LEGAL rent strikes back in the 70s, and I often appeared in court with tenants and affidavits and photos I had taken).
Police REALLY do not make the decision to arrest people unless they KNOW something beforehand or they've consulted with an Assistant District Attorney to explain aspects of the law they suspect are being broken.
Do not rely on television police personnel... it's all a nice fantasy... nice make-believe that REALLY deviates from the truth and reality.
WHO do you think trains police trainees in legal matters? And WHO do you think writes those legal books they read and study from? ATTORNEYS and LAWYERS.
I had one police officer tell me that I couldn't park before 12pm and I politely told him that there was NO such thing as 12am or 12pm... and he actually had the nerve to tell me that I didn't know what I was talking about, and he suggested that I was stupid... he obviously judged me by my long hair (worn in a ponytail, now graying) and I asked him if 12am was during the daylight or night... and he first said, it was during the day and I asked, "REALLY?" and he said, "No, I mean, night..." and I explained that the whole scenario of time not standing still... and suggested that he take the time to call up the Maritime Department and ask. So he asked me, "OK, wise-a.ss, what do you call 12 o'clock at night?" and I said, "I call that 12 midnight and during the day, I call it 12 'noon." The sign was taken away for a couple of days and a new one put up which indicates that there is no parking allowed before 12 'noon! (The neighbors started calling the sign Calico's Sign)
A few days later, he saw me and came over and said he and his friends got into a debate and he actually won a bet at the precinct since he discovered that there is no such thing as 12am or 12pm but there IS a 12 midnight and 12 'noon, as I had told him. (He later discovered that I was his daughter's teacher at the local college and he really felt bad... and even worse when I did his daughter's wedding photos; we've been good friends now for over 18 years).
