Work-Comp Law Question: Do I Even Still Need My Lawyer?
I Have Been Recieving Work Comp Checks, Of Which My Lawyer Has Taken 1/3 Of, For Two Years. Nothing Whatsoever Has Been Done About My Case. I Have A 25% Total Disability Rating. (We Would Argue My Rating Is Much Higher, I Am An Rn Who Now Has Numerous Physical Restrictions And Cannot Be On Her Feet More Than 20Min At A Time. No Hospital Will Hire Me) My Lawyer Says The Company May Just Be Paying Me My Weekly Check And Waiting Me Out Until The Rating Runs Out.
Here Are My Questions:
1. Will The Company Keep Paying Me Weekly If I Fire My Lawyer
2. Will I Get A Settlement Still For My 25% Permanent Impairment Rating?
3. How Would Firing My Lawyer Hurt Me, He Has Taken Thousands Of Dollars For My Case And I Have Not Heard One Word, Ever, And Now I Find Out They Are Probably Just Going To Wait It Out? Why Am I Paying Him One Third Of My Income???
I Have A Problem With People Stealing My Money.

Domestic Violence Question?
I Have A Question On Domestic Violence
What If I Was In A Situation To Sue My Husband Because He Does Not Give Me Money And I Do Not Work. I Need A Lawyer But I Dont Have Any Lawyers Im In California...
The only thing you can really do is call around and see if there is a lawyer that will take your case. Chances are they won't touch it unless you filed a domestic violence report with the police -- but not giving you money may be a difficult thing to use to prove DV unless it is effecting your health or the health of any children (such as no food, no clothing, no housing, etc.). Even if an attorney does take your case, because you're still married and based on his income, they may not find you financially qualified for free services.
Are Divorce Laws Fair?
On The Face Of It, It Would Appear As If The Answer Is No. After All, The Woman Pretty Much Gets Everything - Alimony, The Children, Child Support, And Half Of Everything The Husband Had Before They Got Married, While All The Husband Gets Is A Legal Obligation To Support His Ex-Wife, And Only Gets To See His Kids Once Every Two Weeks. This Doesn'T Really Seem Fair. I Do Understand That The Kids Have To Go With One Parent, Or Another And No Matter Who The Court Awards The Kids To, One Of The Parents Is Going To Suffer. Is There A More Equitable Way Of Handling Divorce? What Do You Think? What Changes Do You Propose - If Any? And, In The Meantime, Is A Prenup Or Not Getting Married At All, All A Man Can Do?
Inspired, To A Degree, By Hattrickp'S Previous Question. Which Is Now Off The Board.
Yes the divorce laws are fair if you are talking about the US. They may not necessarily be fairly enforced or implemented. That is not because of an ignorant or corrupt judiciary but because so many people go into court without lawyers who can advise them of their rights and advocate for their rights. Generally the divorce laws are set up to allow for an equitable division of property and debt that may be skewed in some instances where one of the parties commits domestic violence on the other or for other statutory reasons. Divorce courts generally make orders to promote frequent and regular contact by the children with both parents. That does not always happen if there are other issues such as mental illness, criminal behavior, contempt issues for failure to follow court orders, distant geographic separation or the abject failure of one parent to assert his or her parental rights.
Validly prepared and executed pre-nups may help solve some of the property division issues if you are willing and able to hire a competent lawyer to handle it for you.
How Many Hours A Week Do Corporate Lawyers Work?
How Many Hours A Week Do Corporate Lawyer Work?
How Many Times A Week Average Do They Get Days Off?
Depends on whether it's in house or in a firm. If you work in a law firm, expect to average 60 hours a week over the course of a year. You'd be pretty lucky to consistently have one day off. If you work in a large firm, expect to work 70 to 80 hours a week. I have a colleague who literally has not had one day off since she started working last August. That's 10 months without a single day off, including Christmas, birthday, New Year's, etc.
If you work in-house, you work maybe 50 hours a week on average, and typically will have two days off.
Recommend Criminal Law Field?
A Friend Of Mine Asked About The State Of Criminal Law Field. He Is Considering Law School And Wants To Immediately Start His Own Solo Practice Upon Passing The Bar. Can Any Lawyers Or Paralegals Say Anything About This.
Can He Do This?
Is It A Good Field To Enter?
Will He Be Able To Find Clients?
Without Any Experience, Will He Be Able To Take On Cases?
How Much Will He Possibly Make Out Of School As A Solo Practitioner?
I Would Answer His Question, But I Have No Clue About The Legal Field.
Your friend needs to rethink this and consider another line of employment.
The law field is totally saturated and most lawyers after getting their law degree and then pass the bar may find no jobs anywhere;;;;;;;. So your friend thinks, well in lieu of finding a job in a law firm, I will just go solo and bypass finding a job in a law firm.
My husband is semi retired after practicing law for 40 years. He got a job in a firm when he graduated and after 1 year was made a partner and then 10 years later went out and practiced in a sole practice for over 30 years. But he did contracts, criminal, bankruptcy, divorce, custody, social security, personal injury, malpractice, anything that walked into the office that needed to be represented. That is how he learned and also got the experience and knowledge of other lawyers in the law firm that made him better.
In criminal, it takes special skills that require you to know the "system", which means the court, judges, prosecutors and such on what you can and what you cannot do. Many criminals expect you get them off completely, even though the best criminal lawyers in the US cant do it, depending on the crime. In a murder trial or with child molestations, you will get clients you do not want to take or aghast for what they did, but as their lawyer, you have to represent them to the best of your knowledge, once you agree to represent them. We had to take out our address and personal phone number out of the phone book for threats of past clients who claim they will be looking us up when they get out of prison. With no experience, does he plan to go to the police station or to court and look for clients? To get clients, you have to advertise, (costly) or get referrals from other past clients who recommend you.
My husband had only 1 secretary working for him and the cost to run a office cost him $6,000 per month. That was for the secretaries paycheck, rent, utilities, insurance etc. There were some months his secretary made more than him, since many clients did not pay their bills or was waiting for another case to settle. You cant drop a client when they don't pay you, since judges "frown" on this, since you agreed to represent you and if they "stiff" you, that's your problem.
So your friend needs to sit down and calculate the cost of opening an office, plus insurance, continuing education, and then think, how do you get enough from clients to pay those bills. Also have your friend look into advertising, since if no experience or starting out, needs some way to get clients into his office. But advertising is EXPENSIVE. There is one law firm that told my husband that they paid 6 million a year to advertise. Granted that was for a law firm, so would not be surprised that it could cost him thousands a month to advertise.
Oh and if he thinks about working out of his home, he is totally nuts, since if he does pursue only criminal law, does he want them all to know where he lives? He has to have someplace where he can meet clients that is not his home.
If he wants to go into sole practice, he needs to work somewhere 1st, then go out on his own. My husband has NEVER advertised, since all of his practice has been from referrals or prior clients who come back.
