Criminal Law Attorneys
Criminal Law - Criminal law, also termed as Penal law, encompasses the rules and statutes written by Congress and state legislators dealing with any criminal activity that causes harm to the general public, with penalties. It also covers criminal procedure connected with charging, trying, sentencing and imprisoning defendants convicted of crimes. It regulates how suspects are investigated, charged and tried. Criminal law also includes decisions by appellate courts that define and interpret criminal law and regulate criminal procedure, in the absence of clear legislated rules. In order to be found guilty of violating a criminal law, the prosecution must show that the defendant intended to act as he/she did. In other words, there had to be intention (Mens rea). Criminal law is typically enforced by the government. The state, through a prosecutor, initiates the suit. Criminal law encompasses Substantive Criminal law; Criminal Procedure; and the special problems in administration and enforcement of criminal justice.

Substantive Criminal law defines the crimes committed against the state and may establish punishment. It defines how the facts in the case will be handled, the classification of the crimes (such as, whether the crime is a felony or a misdemeanor), as well as how the crime should be charged. In essence, it deals with the “substance” of the matter. Criminal statutes determine which courts will hear what cases and who will prosecute those cases.

Criminal Procedure describes the methods through which the criminal laws are enforced. For example: when the accused can be searched; when evidence can be seized; and when eyewitnesses can be investigated. Criminal Procedure deals with a defendant's individual, constitution rights - including the right to remain silent, the right to a speedy, public trial by a jury, the right to a competent attorney, and the defendant's right to confront his or her accuser.

Enforcement of criminal laws in the United States has traditionally been a matter handled by the states. Criminal statutes, which vary by jurisdiction, describe the type of conduct that has been deemed a crime, the intent required, and in some instances, the proper punishment. In the application of punishment, there are typically five objectives: retribution; deterrence; prevention/incapacitation; rehabilitation; and restitution. There are limitations on the punishment that may be imposed. The U.S. Constitution's Eighth Amendment states: 'Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.' A number of state constitutions also contain the same, or similar, provisions. }{

Estate Planning Or Lack Of It?
My Uncle Is 90. My Brother, Sister And Myself Are Heirs To The Estate. My Father Is The Executor And Has Power Of Attorney. Other Than The Usual $12000 Yearly Gifting No Planning Has Taken Place. I Understand The Estate Tax Laws Change In 2010. What Shoud We Do?

Speak with a financial planner with expertise in in estate planning immediately. A will is ok, but if you are talking about $2.5 mill you need to consider options like a family trust. There are 2 reasons for this:

#1) a Will is public knowledge...anyone can open the paper and see when a will reading is.

#2) A Will is contestable in the courts.

Why are those 2 points important?

Let's say I live next door to your uncle for examples sake...I read that he passed away and the will reading is on Wednesday. I show up at the will reading with my wife and state that "Good ol' Jimmy (your uncle) told me a little while ago that since I was such a great neighbor and always cut the lawn and helped him out so much with everything, that he was going to leave me $1 mill. when he died. I guess he didn't get around to putting that in his will" My wife and my buddy claim they witnessed this conversation (I cut a deal with then that I would split the money with them if they help me out...) with your goes to court. Chances are I would not win the case for a million bucks, but it would settle out of court and your lawyers would offer me a couple hundred grand (that should have gone to you instead) to go away, plus you would end up paying a whack load of legal fees in the battle (that should have gone to you)...

If there is no other documentation a will is a good thing, but in a case of a somewhat large amount of an estate like this, you need an estate planners advice to create a plan for any potential tax bill's that might be passed on when the estate changes hands, etc.

If your uncle is 90, get on the horn right now and get some kind of plan in place.

Personal Injury Settlement Help?
I Was In A Car Accident Where I Was The Passenger In A Car That Got Rear Ended. I Ended Up Going To The Hospital In An Ambulance And Around $8000 Later The Insurance Company Calls Wanting To Settle. They Are Covering All My Medical Bills And Want To Start Negotiating My Settlement. Anyway I Don'T Know Where To Start And Would Like A Little Advice. Thanks In Advance.

ok i am a claim adjuster and can give you some advice.

1; you are a passenger; so no liability.
2; your settlement will include your medical bills and pain/suffering.

even though you have 8k in medical bills, were they mostly from the hospital? say the ambulance, hospital bills including xrays etc are the majority of your medical bills, not worth a lot. but say you had physical therapy, etc makes worth more;

but say the majority of your bills are chiropractic, dont count your money and take a vacation since you will be disappointed.

the insurance company will review your bills and medical records. after they review will make a determination of what your claim is worth. if you have what we call soft tissue aka whiplash or sprains/strain, not worth a lot. but say you had any broken bones, surgery etc, that makes a difference.

remember any settlement includes medical bills
ie; offer 10k; bills 8k; you get 2k in your pocket.

now when others state get a lawyer; hold off; the lawyer is entitled to 1/3 of any settlement; you may not get more with a lawyer;

since they want to settle, have them make 1st offer; this way can get idea of where they are; if they say offer of 10k, then know may only have say 11k to 12k max they will settle. most companies have a range of what they value your claim is worth; if they offer 9k, may only have value of 10k max; get the picture?

if say most of your bills are diagnostic;
xrays; mri etc which brings your bills higher, has less value; since majority of your bills will be non-treatment and value less.

hopes this helps.

good luck

Legal: Needing A Lawyer For Breech Of Contract?
What Kind Of Lawyer Would Take On A Case Like This? Will The Company Have To Pay For This Lawyer? I Obviously Don'T Have The Money Because They Have Been Dipping In Our Pockets For About Three Years. Please Help! I Know Nothing On This Except That I Need Help.

Breach of contract is going to be a civil issue. Any lawyer can really deal with a simple breach of contract assuming its in written format however depending on the type of contract there may be specialist. As to payment, the lawyer will probably want a retainer up front, but it depends on the situation. However, if you win you'll get your damages plus the cost of your lawyer.

Texas Legal Wills?
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website To Order Texas Legal Wills From?

I can't give you any websites, but I do need to tell you that many of the websites which porport to provide you with do-it-yourself wills are practicing law without a license.

Those who provide you with a pre-printed form with blanks are doing you a disservice.

While it is LEGAL to write your own will, its extremely foolish to do so. The laws of inheritance vary greatly from state to state, and its very difficult for software manufacturers to keep up with the changes in the law... for often the change isn't enacted by the legislature but is a ruling by a court.

When buying a fill-in-the-blank form, you are not availing yourself of the knowledge and experience of an attorney. A simple will shouldn't cost more than $200 to $300, and you will save yourself and your heirs a lot of time and money and headaches.

For a referral to an attorney, contact your local or state bar association.

Foster Care Adoption Lawyer Questions?
I Deleted My Last Question, As It Was Poorly Worded. We Are Foster-To-Adopt Parents. We Have Had The Child In Our Care For A Year. Both Parents' Rights Have Been Terminated 'Unofficially' By The State At Birth (Abuse/Neglect). To Make It Official In Our State, There Must Be A Tpr Hearing.That Hearing Is Scheduled For This Month. Once That Hearing Is Completed, We (Foster-To-Adopt Parents) Are Required To Find And Hire A Lawyer To Proceed With The Adoption Petition. So, My Question: I Know That The Court Determines When The Case Is Scheduled For The Most Part, But Will Our Choice In Lawyers Speed Up Or Significantly Slow Down The Process? Like, If We Pay More Money Or Seek Out A Certain Lawyer Who Claims More Experience/Expediancy, Will That Actually Speed Up The Process, Or Is It All Ultimately The Timing Of The Courts And Not The Lawyer? Thank You For Any Insight You Can Provide!

If you live in a jurisdiction that falls within a Metro area where it is "just busier" and the court docket is full....then obviously the court can play a huge roll in getting the final hearing scheduled....

In my experience, the lawyer plays a VERY BIG roll in how long it takes. I have seen adoptions finalize within a week of my initial meeting to disclose information on the child/ren....and I have seen others take months; all due to the choice in attorney.

I would ask the worker which attorneys in your area they know of that has completed adoptions.....the worker is aware of some I am sure, whether they will tell you is something entirely different.

Also, you can pay a huge amount of money for a cRaP attorney or a very small sum for an awesome attorney. Their priorities sometimes are not yours so don't think more money=better quality/timeliness.
