What Kind Of Lawyer Do Or Attorney Do I Need To Obtain In Which I Am The Victim Of Income Tax Fraud?Help!?
Normally, the victim of tax fraud is the government. It is they who are owed the taxes, and it is they who have been defrauded. Now.. if what you mean is that someone sold you a some sort of a tax scam, then you need to consult with 1) the state (or US) attorney, to prosecute them for the crime of promoting a tax scam. BEFORE you do that though, you need to consult with a tax attorney to make sure that you aren't criminally liable.
After that, you *may* have a cause of action for a civil case against the perpetrator of the scheme. Any competent general practice attorney should be able to handle that for you, either with the assistance of the tax attorney or seperately.
For a referral, contact your local or state bar association.
Should I Find A New Attorney?
I Had An Car Accident Last Year That Was Not My Fault And I Got Me An Attorney To Work On The Case. Its A Year Already And It Doesn'T Seem Like He Want To Work On My Case. I Always Have To Call Him And Most Time He'S Not Available To Take Call. I Would Leave A Message About My Case Update And Sometime It Takes Him A Couples Day To Call Me Back And Sometime I Have To Call Back If I Want Answer. When I Ask To To File An Aberration For Me And He Say Okay. Then A Couple Of Months Goes By And I Call Back And He Still Haven'T File It. It'S Hard To Reach Him Because He Is Either Not Available For Phone Call Or It Take Him Days To Call Me Back. So Far, There Has Been No Change To The Case And It'S Always The Same Thing He Told Me Every Time That He Didn'T Get A Response Back. I Am So Tired Of Always Being The One To Call Him About Any Updates On My Case And I Feel Like He Didn'T Really Want To Help Me With My Case Seriously. What Should I Do? Would It Be Bad If I Get Another Attorney? My Case Should Be Ready To Settle Already But He Keep Saying He Didn'T Get A Response Back For About 3 Or 4 Months Now.
Is this attorney on a contingency? Probably the agreement says that if you switch attorneys, he can charge hourly rates for the work he has done. You can talk to another attorney. Get a feel for what your case is worth and if it would be worth it to switch.
You can also talk to the state bar association and see if they can nudge your attorney. Although then the attorney might not do the best job for your case.
At this point, I would send a letter to the attorney asking for a case status, in writing, within 10 days. Let the attorney know you expect a monthly update letter. Also ask what the statute of Tell the attorney you feel he is not handling the case properly. If you don't get a response, then either report the attorney to the bar or switch attorneys.
Just be aware if you are overdoing the calls and contacts for status. If you are pestering the attorney, that may be why you are getting slow responses.
I'm assuming this is in the US, but I never heard of aberration as a legal term.
Can An E-Mail Demand From A Lawyer Keep A Family Law Case Open If It Has Had No Activity For 365 Days?
You need to be more specific; laws vary by state. Also, only the court can close or dismiss a case for lack of prosecution. I don't understand what you mean by an "email demand" as a "demand" is not usually issued in family law cases. Again ... specifics are needed.
Product Liability Lawsuits In Az?
Hello, We Bought A 5 Year Old Home In An Area With Extremely Hard Water. We Went To A Well-Known Appliance And Home Products Store And Purchased A Water Softener (The Kind That Uses Salt). When The Installation Subcontractor Came To Put It In, He Said We Did Not Have A &Quot;Loop&Quot; For A Water Softener, And That The Salt Would Kill Our Plants. Well, We Live In The Desert And Have No Plants Except For A Few Cactus And We Said We Could Take Care Of The Little Bit Of Water They Needed With Bottled Water. I Am Not Even Sure That Salt-Using Water Softeners Kills Plants, Because I Lived In Another State With Extremely Hard Water And Had A Salt Using Water Softener And Had Prize Winning Roses And Indoor Plants And A Vegetable Garden - No Problems With Any Plants. The Problem Is That The Subcontractor Also Sold A &Quot;Water Treatment/Purification System&Quot; That He Guarnateed Would Take Care Of All Hard Water As Well As Clearning Our Water Of Anything Harmful. The Water Softener We Bought And He Brought To The House Cost About $450. His System Cost 1875 Plus Installation To Total Approx 2800. We Had The Literature For His More Expensive System And The Website For It, And Both Said That Not Only Would It Completely &Quot;De-Foul&Quot; Our Water, It Would Slowly Dissolve The Scaling Already On Toilets, Etc., And Clearly Said There Was No Need To Use An Additional Water Softener. It Is Now Almost A Year Later. We Bought All New Appliances (Washer, Dishwasher, Icemaker, Humidifiers, Toilets, Etc) And They Are Completely Scaled With Hard Water, So Badly We Cannot Even Scape It Off The Dog'S Water Dishes. After Numerous Attempts To Contact The Subcontractor And The Manufacturer With No Response From Either, I Resorted To Threatening To Contact The Bbb And A Lawyer If They Did Not Respond And Compensate Us For The Damage Done. It Gets Worse. We Have (Had) 5 Cats Who Were All Healthy And Certified To Move To This State By A Veterinarian. Now One Has Died Of Lung Cancer, Another Is Dying Of Tumors In His Bowels, Another Has Chronic Liver Failure, And The Last Two Are Sick But No Diagnosis Yet. I, Too, Have Suffered Many Health Problems Since Moving Into This House With The Water Filtration/Purification System With Mysterious Serious Health Problems Not Yet Competely Diagnosed. When The Subcontractor Made The Deal With Us To Buy His Expensive System, He Put His Finger To His Lips And Said &Quot;Shhh, Don'T Tell (Name Of Store), We Will Just Tell Them You Changed Your Mind&Quot;. I Have Finally Made Contact With The Corporation Who Was Very Rude And Told Me It Said No Where In Their Literature That It Would Take Care Of Hard Water Scaling, Or Get Rid Of What Was Already There. I Have Printed Their Website To Prove They Are Lying About This. We Also Have The Guide That Came With It That Also Clearly Says There Is No Need For A Water Softener Since Their Product Took Care Of Hard Water. My Question Is, Does This Fall Under A Product Liability Lawsuit? We Have Never Sued Anyone Before, Just Lucky To Never Deal With Such Liars And Shysters. What Type Of Attorney Do We Contact? Do They Ever Work On A Contingency Basis? I Have Seen Several People Complain Online About Getting &Quot;Ripped Off&Quot; By These People. How Is A Class Action Suit Started, By The Attorney Or Do We Have To Find The Other People That Were Also Hurt? We Have Spent Thousands On The Appliances And More Thousands Trying To Save Our Poor Cats. What Recourse Do We Have, What Type Of Attorney Handles This? The Water Is Being Tested As I Write This, And If It Turns Out (As All The Vets Said, This Is Something Environmental In Your House Making Them So Seriously Ill), Do We Have Recourse To The Money Spent At Vets As Well To Replace All Our Ruined Appliances? We Really Do Not Know Where To Start. Thanks For Any Help.
I am going to be truly honest here
The only liability I see here is the school where you attended. They should be sued for allowing you to continue on
Ever hear of a paragraph? How about a sentence? How about a period?
Nobody is going to take the time to read this run together question.
Do I Need To Seek Legal Counsel?
I Was Stopped In Pa And Cited With &Quot;Criminal Mischief - Intentionally Damaging Real Or Personal Property Of Another&Quot;, &Quot;Consume An Alcoholic Beverage Underage&Quot; And &Quot;Public Drunkenness&Quot;. The Two Alochol Related Citations Are Due To Denial Of A Breathalyzer (Which I Was Never Described The Consequences Of Denying It By The Officer) And The Mischief Citation Was Because I Slapped A Parked Car With My Hand (This Is What Brought The Attention Of The Officer). I Was Not Viably Under The Influence Of Alcohol By Any Means, I Just Denied Taking The Breathalyzer. I Am 20 Years Old And Will Be Turning 21 In Less Than 1 Month. What Is My Best Course Of Action? How Long Can Each Of These Mentioned Charges Stay On My Record? Do I Have A Right To Be Explained The Consequences Of Denying The Breathalyzer? I Am Not A Pa Citizen.
It may be best for you to seek legal counsel, but you are more than likely going to receive some fines and probation. The officer does not have to explain to you the consequences of denying the Breathalyzer. Denying the breathalyzer when the police have some sort of reasonable suspicion you were drinking. You must've been showing other signs you were drinking, even if they were not obvious to you. Also with denying the breathalyzer you are showing you are hiding something, and that can be enough evidence you are guilty. If you are driving and refuse a breathalyzer when they have probable cause your license is automatically suspended for a year.
If you are found guilty those things will remain on your record for life unless you get them expunged.
About How Many Hours Does A Lawyer Work In One Week?
I Am Curious To Know How Stressful A Career In Law Generally Is.
It depends on the job. Private practice tends to be the most stressful and can be among the most stressful careers out there.
For junior lawyers, it often entails long hours (in some big law firms 60 hours a week and 3000 hours a year is not unusual) and even for firms that don't require lawyers to clock that many hours, lawyers live in what is known as a billable hour culture. Law firms make their money by billing the services of their attorneys by the hour and lawyers are valued by the number of hours they bill so it creates a working environment where most lawyers are literally required to account for every 6 to 15 minutes of their workday for at least 8 hours a day on a timekeeping system.
On top of that, more senior lawyers who are partners in a law firm have the pressures of running the firm as a business, spending additional ours maintaining and developing client relations, and handling all the executive administrative responsibilities and overhead issues.
The hours can vary though as some smaller law firms have a business model that does not require continuous long hours at work because it is not extremely ambitious in terms of maximizing profits. The flip side is of course that those law firms don't offer as much income as the other firms.
Government and public interest law tends to be the least stressful. Because lawyers don't have to bill by the hour it relieves a lot of the pressure to work long hours and they don't have to account for their time the way private practice lawyers do. The trade off is that the income for these positions tends to be on the low end.
