My Son Was Very Damaged From Pitocin. Need Help Finding A Law Firm That Will Take The Case.?
He Has Severe Adhd And More. I Need Help Finding A Law Firm That Will Take The Case, As The Statue Of Limitations Is Soon To Expire. I Have Contacted A Few Firms Who Won'T Get Involved Because There Is No Proven Link Between Pitocin And My Son'S Injury. The Hospital May Or May Not Have Been Outside Acceptable Protocol. She Doctor Said She Was Going To Give Me A Tiny Amount, And Then Gave Me So Much That The Labor Pain Became Horrific And She Said She Needed To Give Me Demerol To Prevent Me From Bruising And Swelling So Much That I Might Need A C-Section. Ask Anyone You Know Whose Child Has Adhd. I Bet The Mom Was Given Pitocin In Labor. I Can'T Say There Is No Other Cause, But I Know Of Know Exceptions. Please Don'T Tell Me That You Were Given Pitocin And Your Child Is Fine. You May Also Be A Longtime Chain Smoker Who Is Cancer Free. Clearly, Some Children Tolerate The Drug With No Obvious Damage. But I Could Not Be More Convinced Of The Causal Link, From My Research And That Of Others.
It is possible that a national law firm is in the process of filing a class action law suit against the drug manufacturer. Remember in a class action law suit the law firm gets 1/3 to 1/2 of the money - the real victims get almost nothing. All a lawyer cares about is getting money for themselves.
You forgot to mention which city and state you live in. As you can imagine your options vary wildly based on where you live. For instance if you live in Arkansas and the best lawyer for you case is in Florida, you would probably go bankrupt travelling back and forth just trying to get them to take your case. All a lawyer cares about is getting money for themselves.
Don't tell the hospital or the doctor or anyone else that you are considering a lawsuit, it would be a real shame if evidence you needed for your case was accidentally destroyed before the hospital received a court order to produce it.
When you choose a lawyer you will have to do a lot of research on your own. By the time this is over you will be almost like a legal assistant - researching your own court cases. They can be very tricky and they will lie to a potential client to squeeze more money from you. I have two friends at work who were both hurt on the job in auto accidents. One chose a regular lawyer, the other researched on his own and chose a private lawyer. The victim with the private lawyer received a settlement of over a million dollars (most of which payed his hospital bills). The other guy got almost nothing and almost lost his job. An expensive back surgery was not authorized for over a year and he almost lost his job.
Becoming An Overseas Lawyer?
I'M Going To School To Become A Lawyer And I Was Wondering If Anyone Had Any Information About Practicing Law Abroad (I Live In Canada), Or Starting My Own International Real Estate Company. (What Kind Of Licenses I Would Need, Etc.) Thanks!
Step 1) Enroll in a four-year college or university of your choosing. Complete necessary course requirements. Pass all tests and earn your undergraduate degree.
Step 2) Attend law school. Register for one of the approximately 195 American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law schools. Keep in mind that law school typically takes three years. Consider attending law school part-time or during the night if you work during the daytime. Sign up for and pass the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
Step 3) Participate in clinical programs and internships. Intern with a government agency, corporate law department or with a local law school.
Step 4) Get licensed. Check with the state of residence to ascertain the licensing requirements. Keep in mind that most states require lawyers to pass a written bar examination as well as a written ethics examination before a license is granted. Confirm whether you will need to complete the 6-hour Multi-State Bar Exam (MBE) or the 3-hour Multi-State Essay (MEE) Exam for the state you are seeking a license in to consider you as having passed the bar.
Step 5) Check with overseas lawyer directories such as Lawyer Overseas and International Counsel Search (see resources). Locate an international firm you want to work with. Complete necessary filings and tests in order to practice as a registered foreign lawyer in the specific jurisdiction the international firm operates in. Keep in mind that you will be restricted to working within the laws of the jurisdiction where you are registered overseas.
Step 6) Complete the jurisdiction admittance requirements. Contact the admitting agency in the overseas jurisdiction where you would like to practice. For example, if you work want to practice overseas in Australia, contact the Secretary, Council of Legal Education, Ground Floor, 451 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne 3000. Ask for the specific examinations, fees and documents you must complete to be admitted to practice law in the country. Visit the Law Institute of Victoria (see resources) to learn about the areas of law you will be required to complete before you can practice in Australia. Keep in mind that each country has different admittance requirements before you can practice overseas. Keep in mind that if you are registering to practice in a foreign country, you may need to have a firm understanding of the native language in order to practice effectively.
Step 7) Gain temporary residency status. Visit the local police department in the foreign country where you have registered to practice. Obtain necessary temporary residency forms and guidelines. Complete the forms, present necessary identification and return to the proper authorities.
Step 8) Register with the United States Department of State. Visit the United States Department of State official website (see resources). Create an account. Access the site using your login and password. Register your overseas residence.
Family Court Lawyer Out There? Need Advice Desperately!!?
In Desperate Need Of Help!!! My Husband And I Just Got A Call From My Stepson (My Husbands Son)’ S School. Apparently Our Son’S “Birth” Mother Went To The School And Allowed Him To Get Signed Out Of High School So That He Can Go To Night School. We Went To See The Principal This Morning And He Let Him Back Into The School. He Is Failing And Played Hooky For 24 Days. We Now Have To Go To Hearing Through The Board Of Ed To Find Out If He Will Be Left Back. We Will Do What We Have To Do But Long Story Short. Our Child’S Birth Mother Had No Right To Sign Him Out Of School. Our Son’S Primary Residence Is With Us Not Her!! Legally What Can We Do? My Husband Is So Upset. We Want To Call Her And Tell Her We Will No Longer Be Sending The Kids To See Her On Wednesdays Any Longer. If We Do This, Is That Considered Kidnapping? Legally We Don’T Want To Get In Any Trouble But We Have Had Enough! What Would Happen If We Refuse Her The Visitations?
Thank You So Much For Any Help And Advice!!!
Ok, First I completely agree with you that she had no right to sign him out school like that, but, and I know you don't want to hear this, as his birth mother, the law says she has every right to do that if she so chooses provided you and she have joint or shared custody of him.
As for not wanting to send your kids to see her on Wednesday's anymore, you have every right to do that, however, if you choose to do so, she will have the right to take you to court and sue you for custody and or visitation rights with any children that are biologically hers.
(NOTE: If they are not biologically her children and/or she has never been granted any form of legal custody of them, then she has no legal claim to them and there is nothing she can do )
If they are biologically hers, then she does have legal claim to them and you will have to officially inform her that your children will no longer be visiting her and if she wants to see them you will have to meet in court.
Your husband will also need to sue her for full custody if he wishes to keep her children away from her, if they are her biological children and she wants to be in their lives, she has every right to be and I'm sure she'll fight you in court for either full or joint custody.
I suggest, if you can afford it you hire a lawyer to help you get through all of this. Make sure you have a judge certified copy of the custody agreement of all involved children as well.
I also strongly suggest you think long and hard before you do anything, as your stepson may react very badly if you tell him you don't want him to see his mother.
Maybe you and she and your husband could all sit down to dinner and try and sort through everything, and establish some boundaries and some ground rules in order to avoid the messiness of a custody battle.
Once the children are over 18 it will be their decision as to whether or not they want her in their life.
I wish you the best of luck
Compare And Contrast Criminal Law And Civil Law?
What'S The Difference...
Criminal law centers around a crime being committed. A criminal is charged with committing a crime against the state. District Attorney usually prosecutes the case and the defense can be handled by either a private attorney or a public defender.
Civil law deals with personal injury, divorce, name changes, incorporation, bankruptcy, and other issues where a crime may not have been at issue. Both sides of the case should be represented by private attorneys.

Driving while privileges suspended for DUI: Forfeit vehicle, extend loss of driving privileges for 18 months, fine of not less than $10,000 or more than $15,000 ... three months in jail.
2nd offense (with a valid license): Forfeit vehicle, five years probation, loss of driving privileges for 5 years, fine of not less than $15,000 or more than $30,000. Mandatory alcohol monitor (convict pays for monitoring fees).

3rd conviction in a lifetime for DUI: Forfeit vehicle, driving privileges revoked for life, $30,000 fine, 18 months in jail, 10 years probation.
No negotiation, no plea bargain, no crap.
