Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will find that there are many lawyers in your area that advertise that they can specialize in your type of case. This will make the entire process of finding one with a great deal of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be possible to define your quest to the right one out of very little time. Step one is to generate a listing of the lawyers which are listed in your area focusing on your position. While you are making this list you must only include those that you may have a great vibe about based on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down if you take some time evaluating their site. There you should be able to find how many years they are practicing plus some general specifics of their success rates. At this stage your list must have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites plus an appropriate amount of experience. You should then make time to lookup independent reviews of each and every attorney. Make sure you see the reviews rather than just relying on their overall rating. The data from the reviews will give you a sense of the direction they communicate with their clientele and how much time they invest into each case they are concentrating on. Finally, you will need to meet up with no less than the very last three lawyers who have the credentials you are interested in. This provides you with enough time to really evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and your case. It really is vital that you follow every one of these steps to actually find someone which has the right degree of experience to obtain the perfect outcome.

Why Do Personal Injury Lawyers Drag Out Their Cases?
As with most things in life, there are 2 sides to this coin. In any litigation, there are 2 sides, the defendant and the plaintiff. However, the way these two sides get paid are vastly different, and explain why cases often get dragged out for so long.
Plaintiff's attorneys in personal injury cases generally, but not always, are paid on a contingency fee basis. This means that they only get paid when they win (or more likely) settle your case. Therefore, there compensation is irrelevant to the amount of time and effort they put in, but rather, how much is paid out. Therefore, it usually behooves Plaintiff's attorney's to settle as quickly as possible, even if it would result in a lower settlement.
On the other hand, defense attorneys are generally paid by the hour. These fees can vary, and reaching up to several hundred or even over $1,000 per hour. Therefore, there is very little incentive for them to settle quickly, and often drag out the case to accrue as many billable hours as possible. While this is quite a dirty tactic, the fact of the matter is that it takes two to tango, and unless the Defendant steps in and demands a settlement, personal injury cases often drag out longer than they have to.
Preforeclosure: Realtor Or Real Estate Attorney?
My Wife And I Have A Home That We Would Be Interested In Purchasing That Recently Fell Into Preforeclosure On 9/21/11 In Florida. This Is A Vacant Bank Of America Property That Has Not Been Lived In For Well Over A Year. The Previous Owner Moved Out And Is Current On The Taxes. To Persue Interest In This Home, Do We Need A Realtor, Real Estate Attorney, Or Both? It Would Be My Guess That This Home Will Be A Short Sale.
In The Past, We Have Went To Realtors With Short Sale Housing Interests, And Are Left Waiting For The Phone To Ring. Most Of The Time, A Return Phone Call Or Email Is Asking Too Much. I Realize There Is A Lot Of Patience Needed In The Short Sale Process, And We Are Wanting To Use The Most Effective Method. We Really Like This Home, And Would Like To Work Something Out. Thanks
You do not need an attorney not a real estate agent.
If the property is in pre-foreclosure and is still owned by the person then you might contact this person. Once contacted you would have to make a offer,sign a contract with the sales price, amount you are giving the owner for his equity and take this contract to an escrow closing agent. Make sure the contract say "Taking the property "Subject to the existing mortgage". The closing agent and title company would understand this statement. These two licensed companies would ensure your transaction would close according to the local, state and federal real estate laws.
Taking title to the property in this method, the current owner would still be on the mortgage loan, your name would be on the title deed and recorded by the title company at the county court where the property is located.
Paying and keeping the mortgage loan current, in approximately one year you would be able to refinance the property through another mortgage lender.
In addition to you giving the current owner funds for his equity you would have to bring the foreclosure current. The escrow closing agent would send a document to the lender requesting the amount needed to bring the mortgage loan current. You might consider this as the down payment.
I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
What Is The Difference Between Driving Under The Influence And Driving While Intoxicated?
I Was Just Wondering Which One Is More Of A Fine I Believe That Dwi Would Be More I Am Not Sure???
DUI means you had alcohol in you and your driving was influenced by it. ANY alcohol. If a cop sees you do anything that makes him think you are DUI, he can pull you over. Even if your blood alcohol is under the limit, they can still arrest you. Why? Because your driving caused the cop to pay attention to you so you were under the influence of the alcohol.
DWI means you had alcohol in you above the legal limit. 0.08% in many states. You could have been driving as safe as a preacher on Sunday but if your blood alcohol was above that amount, you can be arrested. If you were sitting in your car, stopped, engine off with the key in the ignition and someone hit your car and you went to the hospital for the injury and they did a blood alcohol and it was above the limit, you were DWI.
The first focuses on how you are driving. The second focuses on an alcohol level being above a preset limit.
Combine the two and they got you either way.

I Need A Lawyer!!!?
Here'S The Deal. I Am A Subcontractor That Has Done About 3 Months Worth Of Work For A General Contractor. He Agreed To Pay Be At A Daily Rate Of About $350 When We First Agreed To Work Together. He Has Paid Me For About A Quarter Of The Work I Have Done For Him.
As Of Now, He Is Saying He Isn'T Able To Pay Me Due To Financial Troubles. He Owes Me About $10,000.
How/What Is The Best Way About Filing A Law Suit? What Can I Expect From A Lawyer? Please Help, I Need This Money!!!
Stop all work for him if you have not done so already. Do you have a written agreement? Witnesses to an oral agreement? Witnesses who have observed you at the work site? Talk to an attorney about a possible labor or materialman's (if applicable) lien on the property where you worked. Depending on the laws of your jurisdiction that may or may not work for you. Ask the lawyer about filing an attachment on the bank loan of the property owner to force payment. Your lawyer will discuss with you whether that is possible at all. You may not be successful in getting back all of what you put into this after the lawyer takes his or her share, but something is better than nothing. The other concern, of course, is a threatened or actual bankruptcy by the general and/or property owner. Good luck.
Does Anyone Know Where I Can Get Low-Cost Legal Help For Child Support Enforcement In Texas?
I'm Looking Into Having My Child Support Case Modified. I'm A Single Mom Of A 5 Year Old, And I've Never Had My Case Reviewed. The Dad Does Not Pay His Court Ordered Amount And Does Not See His Child. I Work Full-Time And Go To School Full-Time And I Can Barely Make Ends Meet. I'm Having Trouble Getting Anywhere With The Case. *He* Changes Jobs So Regularly That By The Time They Figure Out Where He's Working, He Moves To A Different Company. He Also Knows The Routine With The Child Support Division. ('Make An Effort' To Pay Something Every 3 Months And They Don't/Won't Come After You), So He's Skipped Out On Being Liable Financially For His Daughter By Making A .92 Cent Payment. I Really Can't Afford Legal Counsel And Their Ridiculous Fees, Especially With The Holidays Coming Up. I'm Just Tired Of The Games He Plays By Saying He Will Pay And Then Never Does. Ever! I'm Used To It, But It Just Doesn't Seem Fair That I Struggle Day To Day To Make Ends Meet And Both Of Us Are Missing Out On A Life With Bonuses To Them. I Love My Daughter And Would Go To The End Of Earth For Her, But Something Has To Give. I Am Just At Witts Ends Financially. (Btw) I Have No Family To Help With The Burden Of Parenting Or Legal Costs... I'm Completely On My Own. :(
sorry to hear. im in the same boat but i have family that is there to help if i need it. i would just have him sign his rights over and have him out of your life totally but that still means no child support but ..maybe you could get on housing and food stamps and Medicaid...good luck
