Why Would A Car Insurance Defense Attorney Request That I Drop A Motion For An Expedited Jury Trial?
This Is A Nj Personal Injury Case, In Which The Defendant Rear-Ended My Car Which Resulted In An Injury. Do I Need To Have Consent From The Defense Attorney For This Motion? Do I Need To Withdraw A Motion Just Because The Defense Requests It And Does Not Want An Expedited Jury Trial?
"The best defense is a continuation." That's an old legal canard. If the insurance company thinks you have a chance of winning, they want to delay, delay, delay. The longer the delay the better their chances of not losing. You could die, the witness(es) could die, the cop who investigated could die or, worst-case scenario- they have that much longer to use the money they'll have to pay you.
I hope you've got an attorney working for you. Confirm with your attorney whether you should move more slowly or steam ahead with the trial. Insurance companies have platoons of shysters on their payroll whose job is to do what's best for the insurance company, not anyone with a claim. Get some good advice from a real attorney, but remember that it's an adversarial relationship- the insurance company wants what's good for them, not you.
What Is A Business Lawyer?
Any Details? Salary, Colleges,. Ect
To be any kind of lawyer you have to graduate from college, get into law school, graduate from law school and pass the bar exam. That takes nearly 8 years. Then the newly minted lawyer will practice in the area he or she chooses of lucky. Business lawyer is a very broad term. It can encompass anything from negotiating contracts to giving advice to businesses on a wide array of things. Salaries vary widely based upon location within the US, years in practice, the firm with which the lawyer becomes associated and the ability of the lawyer. Starting salaries are above $100K in most major cities and those new lawyers are worked to the bone to earn it. After being an associate for a number of years (usually around 8-10 years) if the lawyer is good enough he is offered a partnership. At that point his income should go up into the multi six figures. BUT, the economy now is lousy even for lawyers so the traditional salary ranges I have set forth above are often not being met.
Changing Disability Lawyers Good Or Bad Decision?
If I Fire My Disability Lawyer And Hire A New One Will That Decision Make My Case Wait Time Longer Or Change Hearing Date Or Anything?
The new lawyer will notify SS that they now represent you. But, the old lawyer could also put a lien if you get awarded disability, by notifying SS, they have the original lien, which is a mess. IF, they do, then most likely will have trouble getting another lawyer to take over.
But, even if that were to happen, I "believe" would not affect your benefits, if awarded, only that SS could hold any funds to "either" lawyer.
Always, with SS, any notifications are sent to both you and to the lawyer, so if a hearing date is set, then both of you receive the letter. Or, if awarded, letter sent on how much, if any back pay etc, and to both of you.
IF, the reason you want to fire old is due to wait time, wont be any different with the new, since many times, can take YEARS for you to get a hearing, due to the backlog. NO lawyer can speed it up, since this is the government. My husband who has done social security cases for over 40 years, will sometimes advise his client to contact your congressmen, which "sometimes" gets it moving.
Most people applying may have to appeal 2 or 3 times, before they "might" get awarded. If you are under age 55, is even more difficult, the feeling is that you have not worked enough, or, paid enough into the system to be paid for the rest of your lifetime.
Can Anyone Give Me Information On Steven Roddy, The Scottsboro Boys Lawyer In Their First Trial?
Its For School
Mr. Steven Roddy, attorney for the defense from Chattanooga, was undoubtedly intimidated by the position in which he found himself. At the beginning of the trial he had asked not to be recorded as the lawyer in the case, begging the judge to leave Milo Moody, Scottsboro attorney appointed by the Judge as lawyer for the defense, on record as counsel for the Negroes with himself appearing purely in advisory capacity as representing the parents and friends of the boys in Chattanooga. He made little more than half-hearted attempts to use the formalities of the law to which he was entitled, after his motion for a change of venue made at the beginning of the trial was overruled. It might be said for him, of course, that taking the situation as it was, he felt it was hopeless for him to attempt to do anything much, except make motions for a new trial after the convictions, which he did.
The boys' first defense lawyers were the incompetent Stephen Roddy and Milo Moody. Steven Roddy was appointed defense attorney- although he executed his position very poorly.
I hope this helps a little.
Unusual Scenario Involving Juvenile Law...?
Here'S The Hypothetical I'M Pondering:
Let'S Say An Arrest Warrant Is Issued For A Minor. It'S Not For A Felony Offense. It'S For A Status Offense Or, At Worst, For An Offense That Would Be A Misdemeanor Regardless Of One'S Age. Now Let'S Suppose That The Youth Has Run Away And Is No Longer Within The Relevant Jurisdiction. He/She May Have Left The State Even. The Kid Somehow Manages To Survive On The Street For A Couple Years And Is Now An Adult. Here'S My Question. What Happens To The Warrant? Is It Now Null And Void? Would The Warrant Stay Active? If So, What Would Most Likely Happen To The Offender If Caught? Obviously They Can Try A Juvenile As An Adult, But Surely They Can'T Try An Adult As A Juvenile? Would The Case Simply Be Thrown Out Once The Defendant Shows Up In Court? What Exactly Would Happen In This Scenario?
I Don'T Know Why I'M Thinking About This. I'M No Longer A Juvenile (Nor Did I Commit Any Crimes As One), So I'M In No Danger Of This Happening To Me. Maybe I'Ve Been Watching Too Many Of These True Crime Shows. Lol!
I do believe, but have been proven wrong on occasion, that what ever the kid did would stay on the records. If somewhere along the way the kid, now an adult, would we'll say apply for a job, this would show up on a back ground check. It's a case that has never been resolved and would still be open.
Had the kid done the right thing at the time of what ever he/she did it most likely could have been resolved at that time. However because it wasn't resolved it will still show up on court records.
I am not an attorney nor law student, therefore this is only my guess or other wise opinion.
What Is The Percentage Of People Applying For Social Security Disability Getting Approved Within The 1St?
6 Months Without Legal Representation?
Your question should be, how many times can you be denied before you get a lawyer. Some people do get approved in a few months. Other people take a few years.
