What Will The Law Firm/Walmart Do?
I Worked For Walmart. I Was Later Accused Of Stealing And Forced To Pay Restitution. After About 5 Payments, Which Was 250 Out Of The 800 I Owe Them, I Lost My Job. I Wasn'T Able To Pay Them, And They Turned It Over To A Law Firm. My Question Is, Is The Law Firm Going To Sue Me? Will I Be Arrested?
Law firms are also collection agency's. Walmart pays the firm to do the work for them to get there money from you. You can expect a lot of calls from any number of so called law firms asking you to pay back. These kinds of firms will buy and sell lists of people who owe. So don't be surprised if you don't recognize the name of the firm. Actually they are not to call you at home or work. If they keep calling tell them you are going to charge them with harassment.
They'll most likely have recorded message telling you they have a business matter to discuss with you. You might even talk to a live person.
Simply put you're going to be dealing with a collection agency that Walmart pay to go after people who owe them money. No the law firm/collection agency isn't going to sue you, nor will you get arrested.
It's up to you what you do. You owe Walmart $800.00 and this will follow you around for the rest of your life if you don't pay up. Doesn't do much for any credit rating either. You may not think about credit rating now, but somewhere down the road when you're looking for a loan, they will tell you to turn around a walk out the door. You want to build a new garage 10-15 years from now and still owe the $800.00 you're not going to be building any garage with a little help from the bank.
It's time to start thinking beyond your eye brows, because this kind of thing can effect you in the future. You may not be thinking in these turms but, but it will kick you in the as further down the road.
It's more than the $800.00, but then I guess you're getting a little taste of things to come if you don't clean up your act.
How Does My Lawyer Get Paid? (Criminal & Civil)?
I Am Doing A Law Project For Law Class, On Post Trial Motions. One Of The Questions Is
&Quot;How Does My Lawyer Get Paid&Quot; (Criminal & Civil) Neeeed Helpp, Thanks.
As a general rule, when you hire a lawyer, you will sign a contract or agreement. On this agreement will state the lawyers hourly rate to be used or calculated in billing the client. Most lawyers will make you pay a "retainer", meaning they ask you the amount up front and their "expectations" of what it will cost to represent you.
So as an example, say the retainer is $1,500 and the lawyer bills at $200 per hour. For every piece of correspondence reviewed, motions filed, the lawyer will subtract out each hour from the $1,500 towards the payment of his legal fees. From that, he will pay the court the filing fees which in many courts is around $150 to file. Every phone call he makes on this case, or for every phone call he talks to the client, they will bill you from that amount. They usually do this in 10 minute increments, so if the lawyer is on the phone for 4 minutes, will still bill you 10, or if 17 minutes, 20. They will bill for expenses which could be paper, faxing, postage etc.
Now say when the case is concluded, the lawyer has only used $1,300 of the original $1,500, then the lawyer will refund $200 back to the client. But many times, the $1,500 is not enough and the final bill could be $2,300, so the lawyer will bill you for the addle $800 owed on the case that he used to defend you.
In civil, works the same way for most cases with the only exception is personal injury cases. Those are usually on a "contingency" basis, meaning that if you win/settle a case, the lawyer will get 1/3 of the settlement, or if you lose, gets nothing. But in most personal injury cases, if the lawyer files a lawsuit, the contract will most likely state the lawyer will get 40% since it is in litigation, thus filing suit, discovery, and addtl pleadings needed to settle the case.
What may surprise a lot of people is that if a client does not pay the lawyer, they cannot stop representing the client, since they have a agreement with the client to represent them. If you go before a judge to state you don't want to represent someone anymore due to unpaid legal fees, the judge will throw out and you are stuck till the case is closed.

I Want To Become A Corporate Lawyer. What Courses Should I Take In My Undergrad?
My Plan Is To Attend The University Of Alberta. As You May Already Know, It Is Not Written In Stone Which Courses You Take In Your Undergrad. However, I Am Planning In Enrolling In The Bachelor Of Commerce Program With A Major In Business Economics & Law. After This 5 Year Program, I Will Be Taking A 3 Year Program With Studies In Law Which Will Pretain To Being A Corporate Lawyer.
Am I Making A Good Choice? Please Give Me Your Opinion.
Honestly, it doesn't really matter what courses you take to get yourself to law school. Sure, if you want to be a corporate lawyer, having a basic working knowledge of that world will help, but it's not necessary.
For example, I've worked in commercial litigation for three years, and I have a BA in Philosophy, and no formal training in the business world. On the other hand, I'm (a) a pretty good attorney, and (b) very good with contracts. I can assure you, I didn't know the first thing about contracts or property (real & intangible) before I got to law school.
On the other hand, my undergraduate degree did prepare me for law school, because I learned how to think in an organized manner, and to look at problems from more than one or two vantages.
As a side note, many law schools look for nontraditional majors (music, math, arts, the sciences) in their applicants; if you have a love/aptitude for any of these fields, you might want to consider some coursework in that direction. If nothing else, you'll enjoy your time in college more if you're studying something you truly love.
I Can'T Afford An Attorney For My Divorce?
I Am Going To Be Divorcing My Husband But I Cannot Afford An Attorney. My Credit Is Destroyed And I Cannot Get A Credit Card Or Loan. We Have A Child, A House, And A Lot Of Debt To Divide Between Us And I Don'T Know If There Will Be A Fight Over It! Does Anyone Know Of Any Alternatives To Hiring A Lawyer?
there is no alternative to hiring an attorney, unless you and your hubby sit down and agree to terms. there are times when you can't do your own divorce and this is one of them. i did my own divorce but we agreed on everything, and had no children or property. If we would have had those things I would not have been able to do my own divorce.
What Are Florida Legal Laws?
Ok So My Boyfriend Is Almost 17 And I Just Turned 19. Oh Stop With The Negative Comments Already. My Question Is.. If I Get Pregnant, (Which I Think I Am) What Could Happen To Us? In Florida It Has A 16-23 Age Thing Where You Can Date But Does That Involve Sex?
There is no state that has laws regarding dating. All age laws are in regards to sexual activity. In short, a minor does not have the legal capability to legally consent to sexual activity. There is nothing legally wrong with a 60 year old dating a 13 year old. Morally disgusting, but not illegal. If they have sex, the 60 year old gets arrested.
In your case, almost every state allows a certain age range for sexual activity when one of them is technically a minor. I'm pretty sure Florida is one of those states, and since you are only two years apart, you *should* be OK. To be on the safe side, I wouldn't go around advertising that you are having sex with a 17-year-old.
As for the kid, the usual rules apply. If you both stay together, then you raise the child as any normal set of parents would under whatever circumstances you find yourselves in. If you break up, you can either agree on child support / visitation rights, or you go to a family court and have the judge figure it out for you.
