A large number of people today do not think about obtaining a legal professional right up until they are in desperate need. The lawful difficulty could be personal, like family law, for a separation and divorce or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a criminal situation you need to be defended on. Firms need to have law firms as well, whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or possibly unjustified business strategies.

A large, full service law firm has a lot of legal representatives with various areas of expertise, so hinging on your current legal issue, you can instantly hold on to the finest law firm to fulfill your ongoing need without having to start your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to find a legal representative you can trust. You want one with a decent record, who isfrank, productive, and wins cases. You would like to have confidence that they will stand for you thoroughly and bill you fairly for their services. From time to time a word of mouth from a close friend or business affiliate can be practical, however you should continue to keep your options open and evaluate all the firms available, for the reason that when you want legal support, you need it quickly and you really want the very best you can afford.

What Makes A Good Criminal Lawyer?
You'Ll Always See Those Fancy $500 - $1000 Per Hour Lawyers On Movies Or The News Representing The Mafia Or Stars, What Does It Take To Be Like That? What Do They Have That The Average Lawyer Does Not? Do They Establish A Specific Style? If So, How Do They Do This? Everything From The Cloths To The Voice. What Is It About These Guys?
Many of the top criminal defense attorneys that I know of got their start in the law profession by working as a prosecutor. The years that they spend as a prosecutor allows them the chance to learn how prosecutors build their cases against the criminals. When they switch over to being a defense attorney, they take that knowledge with them and it helps them to plan what kind of case the prosecution is going to build and how to defend against that kind of case.
Top defense attorneys aren't necessarily smarter than your average attorney, but they are usually much more aggressive. And they usually adopt an image that says "power" by wearing expensive suits and watches, and using the body language of someone who is an "alpha" leader. This tends to give clients confidence that the lawyer knows what he is doing.
Question Re Real Estate Law/Renter's Rights
I Signed A 12 Month Lease Beginning 4/1/07. The Lease Terminated, But W/Out Any Oral Agreement Or Anything, I Continued To Send Rent Checks And Continued To Live In The Apt. A 1Br In Nyc.
On May 1, 2008, I Was Admitted To Hospital, And Stayed Through 6/28/08. On June 14, 2008, Landlord Was Notfied Via Family Member That I Would Be Vacating. I Paid Full June Rent. The Landlord Was Not Able To Show The Apartment B/C She Was Not Able To Reach Me To Ask Permission. However, While She Tried To Contact Me At Work, And Via Other Ways, She Did Not Try My Cell Phone For Some Amazing Unkown Reason.
There Were Other Damages, Whcih I'm Fine W/The Associated Deductions. She Ended Up Saying She Lost A Month B/C She Couldn't Show The Apt And Didn't Get The Keys Until 7/2/08. I Said She Should Have Her Own Keys. She's The Landlord After All!! I Would've Given Permission To Show The Place Of Course.
So, W/No Contract, Was I Liable For That Last Month's Rent? (Full July?). She's Holding Me Accountable, Even Though I Left 7/15/08. Her Argment Is That I Couldn't Be Reached To Give Permission. To Me, This Is Bs, Since She Didn't Even Call My Cell Phone.
She Also Included Medical Costs Associated W/Cleaning Lady's Injury Gotten In My Apt After Keys Returned. Is That Crazy Or What?
you had a month tom month lease. My understanding (a related issue came up for me this year) is that whether or not you owe full months or can give 30 days notice at any time is entirely jurisdiction related and depends on local laws, and perhaps on what the lease says on the topic if anything.
my own attorney and my prior landlord disagreed on the issue, it is still unresolved here in California for me.
In any case, if you are out, and you didn't pay from 7/15 to 7/31 and you have no security deposit concerns, then don't worry about it much.
Landlord is probably bluffing - she will not sue you. you owe her nothing about any injuries. stop taking her calls and she will go away.
I am sure laws are very pro-tenant in NYC - surely there are agencies or mediation boards that you can call up and get solid comforting advice on.
But basically, next time she calls tell her she must only correspond with you in writing and I am sure you won't hear from her again.
Small Auto Injuries Claim In Fremont Ca Alameda County, How Much Should The Pain And Suffering Be??
I Got Into A Car Accident A Few Months Ago, The Other Person Is At Fault, His Insurance Is Geico And I Already Got The Medical Treatments; My Medical Bills Came Out To Be $2000 (Out Of My Own Pocket). The Car Damage Came Out To Be $1300 Which Geico Paid. But Geico Only Offers $500 Settlement For Medical Treatments, Pain & Suffering, Which I Did Not Settle. I'M Gonna Go File Through Small Claim Court In Alameda County, Any Suggestion On How Much My Pain And Suffering Should Be? Thx Guys!
You should get a personal injury attorney to represent you because you should NEVER be settling for less than the actual cost of your medical treatments resulting from an accident that wasn't your fault. Geico is trying to screw you over because you don't have anyone representing you.
When I was in an accident, I was offered an additional $1500 for my pain/inconvenience on top of my medical bills, which were also around $2000. Don't go through small claims because you won't be able to have an attorney. Tell Geico they either give you the full amount of your medical costs (why were you paying out of pocket anyway? Usually this is set up through the insurance company of the person who hit you) or else you will hire an attorney and take this to court, which would cost them an awful lot more than $2000....
See a PI attorney for a consultation. In these cases you don't pay anything unless you win.
Hey I saw your response so here's mine: Speak to another attorney!! The one you talked to just didn't want your case, so find one who will take it. Maybe he only goes after huge cases. You have to interview attorneys until you find a decent one you feel comfortable with.
As for paying the medical up front, Geico should have been doing that from the beginning, not you OR your insurance company. They should have sent you to doctors they have deals with (and Geico being so huge, there will be lots of them) that will see you and bill Geico for it, not you. Look under the yellow pages for "attorneys - personal injury" and make an appt to see a couple of them. What the heck, the consult's free. As for pain & suffering, it really varies on your injuries, but you don't get much in CA anymore, maybe $1000-$2000 above your medical expenses, but again, ask a PI attorney. Usually you get a lot more money rewarded when you have an attorney. PI attorneys do take 1/3rd of your reward, but if Geico is shafting you, it would pay to get one anyway.
Which Laptop(Under $750.00) Would Be Best For Doing Legal Research?
I Need To Buy One Before Next Semester; I'Ll Be Taking 4 Law Classes And 1 Access Dbma Class.
ANY laptop under your price cap will do nicely for legal research.
What do you think that you need? More importantly, why do you think you need what you think you need?
Let's look at this. You need the ability to get online, and you need the ability to type, and you need the ability to save what you type, and you need the ability to print what you type. Getting online is all about having an internet connection... and that has nothing to do with your laptop. Typing... well, all laptops have keyboards. Saving your documents... is something you can do on any laptop. Printing all depends on whether or not you get a printer, and has nothing to do with what laptop you get.
So. If you were to look around EBay, or Craigslist, or your local newspaper, and you were able to find a laptop from 8 to 9 years ago, and it had Windows 2000 on it... that would work just fine. You would be able to get online with it, and it comes with Windows Write (a basic word processor), and you could purchase any one of a number of printers at Target or Walmart... and there you would be, all ready to do your legal research.
You could also walk into Best Buy and purchase the lowest priced laptop they have in the store at the time, and it will do everything you need. You could go to http://www.bestbuy.com and order the cheapest laptop they have available online (since they have inexpensive ones online that they do not have in the stores). You could buy your laptop at Walmart. You could buy a $200 laptop from http://www.geeks.com and it would do what you needed to do.
Which brings me back to my original questions to you... why do you think you need more than the most basic of laptops? What are you not saying?
Anyone Knows Anything About Prepaid Legal Services?
Hi, I Recently Got A Speeding Ticket In Ohio, And I Am Finding An Attorney To Try To Represent Me And Help Me Resolve The Issue (Remove The Point, Etc). I Came Across These Prepaid Legal Services, And They Said All I Have To Do Is Pay 35 Dollars A Month And They Will Find Me A Lawyer. Nothing Is Binding, So I Can Cancel It After The Case. They Will Get Me A Membership, Etc. Are They Trustworthy? Will They Help Me Resolve The Issues?
It's like shooting dice. You may get a pretty good lawyer or maybe not so good. There are a lot of other criteria that go into finding a good lawyer. The prepaid legal services may also let you do wills, living wills, health care proxies, etc. so you may end up getting your money's worth.
Texas Attorney General Child Support...?
I Live In Texas And I Was Wondering If I Send My Baby'S Momma Money Each Week Outa My Check, Does That Count Towards Child Support Or Will It Only Count As A Gift? Cause Ive Heard Two Different Things, One Is Its A Gift So It Isnt Child Support And One Is It Is Child Support Cause I Havent Been Ordered By The Court To Pay Child Support
In Texas, child support is paid through the Attorney General's office. If you are giving money directly to the child's mother, keep receipts or records because she can turn around and file non-payment against you and claim that you never gave her anything. Why didn't the court order you to pay child support? That's kind of unusual.
