I Need A Lawyers Advice?
Lawyer Dropped My Case. Now I Need A Good Lawyer....Long Island Ny?
I Was At The Wrong Place At Wrong Time. My Head Was Slashed With An Open Beer Bottle From A Guy..He Was Drunk And Was 17 At The Time. Went To Police Station, Filed A Report, Detective Took Pictures...Then To The Er For Stitches. I Have A Scar. This Was About A Year Ago... I Was 18 Female At The Time This Happened. My Lawyer Wanted To Sue The Defendant For Accidentally Injury. The Da Asked Me To Go To Court And Testify Against The Defendant. I Didn'T Want To Do Anything Without My Lawyer Stating It Was Ok.. When I Called My Lawyers Office...The Legal Assistant Said It Was Fine To Testify. So I Did. Then My Lawyer Dropped Me Stating My Stories Didn'T Match. (I Guess No Money Out Of The Case) My Question Is I Still Have A Scar. This Lawyer Office Treated Me Like I Was The One Who Hurt Someone. They Wouldn'T Return My Phone Calls, Gave Me Bad Advice, And This Guy Is Walking Around Free. What Do I Do? The Lawyer Hangs Up On Me When I Ask Questions. I Need Advice!!! And A New Lawyer. Can I Still Sue This Person Who Slashed My Forehead?
You don't provide enough information about your situation, but, yes, you can sue. You'll probably have to go to small claims court because it doesn't sound as though a personal injury attorney will take your case because there are going to be serious issues with your credibility.
I'd be curious to know exactly how your stories didn't match. Did you provide a written statement. I'm assuming the version you gave to the police and/or your written statement differed significantly from what you testified to in court. (And, any personal injury attorney would have given you the thumbs up to testify in court. If, by claiming your lawyer's office gave you "bad advice," you mean it was bad advice to said it was fine to testify, you are mistaken. If you didn't pursue criminal charges this would make your civil case more difficult to win but a conviction of the defendant would make your civil case a slam dunk. Plus, that the DA "asked" you to go to court was a courtesy as the DA could have issued a subpoena and you would have been required to show up.)
Again, if I was considering representing you I would want the original police report containing your declaration and the trial transcript of your testimony to find out exactly how your story changed. If there is a valid reason/explanation for the different stories, perhaps your credibility could be rehabilitated but if the stories are SO different it would be unlikely a judge or jury would believe you.

How To Break Contract With A Lawyer?
I Am Not Satisfied With My Lawyer And Think To Break A Contract. I Couldn'T Find An Information About Money Refund In Case Of Cancelling A Contract.
What Is The Best Way To Cancel Your Agreement And What Percent Of Money Could Be Returned?
Would Appreciate An Answer!
Inform the lawyer that you no longer wish too utilize his (or her) services. Be advised, however, that the lawyer is entitled to keep any (or all) of any retainer fees you paid, provided that he performed services and requires payment. If there are any unused portions of the retainer, then that should be refunded to you. The attorney should also provide you a bill, documenting how the amount billed was calculated.
If you do not want to do this yourself, you should find another attorney and that attorney should be able to assist you.
Anyone Out There Know Anything About Probate Court?
My Fiance'S Mother Passed Away Last Week From Colin Cancer, She Didn'T Have A Will & His Step Dad Is Telling Him That He Isn'T Intitled To Any Of His Mother'S Esstate. My ? To All Is... Whats The Low Down On Probate? We Have A Lawyer. But We Want To Know What Are Some Things We Need To Know Before All Of This Gets Blown Up In Court. All We Know About His Mom Is That She Had...A Car In Her Name, She Owned Half Of The Home, And Half Of Her Huspands Truck. We Know That She Had Life Insuance, & A Retirement Plan. My Fiance'S Step Dad Is Also Telling Us That He Is Going To Get Rid Of His Mom'S Car. Is This Legal? Can He Do Any Of This Without Even Putting Anything Into Probate? Is There Anyone Out There That Has Been In This Same Situation That Might Have Some Advice? The Reason I Am Asking About All Of This Is Because My Fiance' Has Already Lost One Parent (His Father) 2 Years Ago... He Was Left Out Of Everything Because Of His Stupid Step Mom. Please Help!
Hi. I've been a legal assistant for 25 years. Please know the step-dad is most likely BS-ing you guys. No will from the deceased means your fiance may very well be entitled to a portion of his mother's estate, regardless if she was married or not. With no will, the law normally steps in and makes proper division of the assets of the estate. This can be a long, drawn out process. Each state may vary in what percentage a spouse gets if the other spouse has surviving children from a previous marriage(your fiance), i.e. perhaps the surviving spouse will get 50% and your fiance 50%, or it could be divided 70/30. If you have an attorney worth his salt, he should have explained this to you. The attorney needs to file for an injunction or bring a motion before your local court to prevent the step-father from disposing of ANY asset of the estate, until an inventory can be completed. If the step dad contests the motion on his own or with his own attorney, the court will appoint a guardian ad litem (as such a disinterested 3rd party that is an attorney, that will basically represent the deceased's interest/estate to review, assess and inventory the estate. Thereafter, again, according to your state's law, the estate will then be divided proportionately. Be advised that once the court orders the injunction or the motion is approved and a Court order is issued, there are sanctions (penalties) that can be instilled upon the step father for contempt should he dispose of any assets in the interim. As to things like cars, the court will probably order the vehicle be sold and again, profits would be proportionately divided. For insurance policies, who gets it depends upon who is listed as beneficiary of the policy at the time of his mother's death. It could be the step dad, your fiance or whomever his mother chose. Please don't feel alone, this happens all over the country and especially when "blended families" are involved. I hope this helps!
If Some Feels Their Civil Rights Have Been Violated Because Of Their Race Who Do You Call Other Than A Lawyer I Mean Like So Serious It Could Lead To A Big Law Suit Againt The Police Department I Have Contacted The State Govenor My Email But I Need Someone To Get Down To The Bottom Of The Problem Who Else Should I Contact? Who Is Over A Police Dept Does The Police Have Police For Them Who Make Sure That They Are Doing Their Job
If you feel you have what is called a 1983 Action (violation of civil rights) you should call an attorney first.
They take that type of case on what is called a contingency basis, which means that you do not pay them unless they win your case. Just make sure that theattorney has experience in practicing before a Federal Court.
As for who is over the Police Department, it would start with the Police Commission, then the City Council, then the State Attorney General.
