Can A Corporate Lawyer Become A Judge? Or Do You Have To Be A Criminal Lawyer...I'M From Canada Btw :P?
I Want To Know Whether A Corporate (Business-Related) Lawyer Could Become A Judge In Canada...
In the US, any lawyer can become a judge (you don't even have to be a lawyer for the Supreme Court), but usually appellate litigators are the top choices. Judges, especially at the higher levels, deal with all sorts of cases and so need good reasoning and writing skills and familiarity with the system that you usually only get as someone with appeals experience. Corporate lawyers rarely have that kind of experience, and most criminal lawyers don't, either. I would assume the Canadian system is similar - you want people with the academic knowledge, regardless of their exact specialization.
Does My Friend Need A Criminal Attorney?
My Friend Is Collecting Ss Disability Benefits. When She First Applied For Them She Had Zero Income And No Prospects For Employment (Not Because She Wouldn'T Look, But Because She Was Too Incapacitated At The Time). To Increase Her Benefit, She Put Both Of Her Daughters Down As Dependents When In Fact, Only One Lived With Her At The Time. Not Only Did She Do This With Ss, But Also For Food Stamp Benefits. The Federal Government Reviewed Her Just A Few Days Ago And Found That One Of The Daughters She Claimed Is Not Living With Her.
She Is Hysterical And Probably Rightly So. She Wants To Call The Investigator And Tell Her The Truth About Everything Come What May. I Have No Idea What The Penalties Might Be, But Recommended That She Seek Help From A Criminal Defense Attorney Before Confessing To Anyone Else. What She Did Was Obviously Wrong And I Don'T Condone It, But I Feel Sorry For Her Also. I Will Greatly Appreciate Helpful Suggestions Without Judgment. Thank You All.
She committed perjury and welfare fraud. In reality, however, most of these cases never go to trial because of the expense and difficulty prosecuting them. They save criminal proceedings for the serious cases involving large dollar amounts. In smaller cases, they simply advise the person that they need to pay back any money they received above what they were entitled to receive. They will also likely stop her benefits even if she would otherwise have been entitled to receive some money. They can garnish her wages and tax returns until they have their money back.

About 4 Years Ago,My Husband Was In A Nasty Accident. He Was Working At A Place Called City Tire. He Was Putting Air In A Tractor- Trailer Tire When It Exploded In His Face. His Jaw Was Broken, He Had A Skull Fracture And Both Ears Were Ruptured. One Of The First Things I Done Was Call A Attorney. He Seemed Realy Good At First. About A Year Later We Had To Go To A Remedeation, We Turned Down The Offer Which Was 15,000. Then Are Lawer Calls Us ,Saying That We Better Take The Money Becouse He Didnt Want This To Go To Court, He Said We Might Not Get Ant Thing If We Didnt Take It. We Ended Up With 12,000 Dollars. It Has Been About 4 Years Now, And My Husband Has Almost Lost All Of His Hearing, His Jaw Swells Up All The Time. He Cant Drive At Night Becouse He Cant See After Dark. I Want To Know If There Is Ant Thing That We Can Do, I Know We Cant Re-Open The Case But Can We Target The Atterney, Its Almost Like He Got Paid Off. Thanks For Your Time. : Kristy
I don't know why the lawyer did so poorly for you, but I agree that you didn't seem to get good representation.
Saying that and proving that are two different things. Before you can win a case you need to prove something happened. So start with that question how can you prove that he was bribed or under-performed.
You could sue him for malpractice based on the low payment you got. To do that you would have to find out what the average payment is for that kind of case and if your lawyer under-performed dramatically then you could sue him based on that. Lawyers are subject to malpractice just as doctors are.
However, the original company, Tire City, and their insurance company are immune to any lawsuit because you agreed to the case, you signed the legal agreement and the contract probably has a clause that says you cannot hold them responsible for any further complaints or law suits. You need a lawyer to look at the agreement to see if this clause is included, but I am fairly certain it is since insurance companies want to pay as little money as possible.
You need to talk with a new lawyer about this. Since you didn’t specify the amount was in pounds, dollars, euros, or rubles etc. I can’t tell what nation you are in, but I can tell you that if you are talking dollars then you got gypped big time. I could have negotiated a better settlement and I have no experience as a lawyer. Gather the records for the original treatment and the bills you got for it. Then ask why the issue of possible and future brain damage didn’t come up? Why didn’t the lawyer want to take this case to court? If you husband was doing something illegal or if there were any question about how he got injured, or what his injuries are then your case might be in doubt. An explosion, skull fractures and blown eardrums are very easy to detect and prove. From the information you have given me your case should have been a breeze with the possibility of at least 10 times the settlement you got. Also what caused the explosion and why were they not named in the lawsuit. Tires don’t just blow up for no reason. Was you husband over inflating a retread tire, or was he inflating a brand new tire? Did Tire City have any safety rules about tire inflation? Was their any safety policy in effect and did your husband violate it? If he did then that might explain the poor settlement and the lawyer’s desire to not go to court, but if your husband was doing a standard job, with standard safety precautions then the tire explosion wasn’t his fault. Even if a tire has a blow out, even if it is a large truck tire I don’t see it generating enough force to break your husbands skull or rupture his eardrums. If you are talking about a tire for the Astro Dump Truck that stands between 10’ and 6’ tall then I might see the pressure causing a problem, but it if was a standard truck sized tire then you husband would have to have been laying his head on top of that tire or in between the tire and the tire well.
To give you any good advice I need a better understanding of the circumstances. This should have been in the original testimony and sworn to a record, which your lawyer should still have a copy of. You should start with getting all the records that he has on your case. If he has a poor record trail then that is a case for malpractice right there! If he “lost” your husband records after only 4 years then that sounds like he is operating a pretty poor law firm and could be grounds for a lawsuit against him. Talk with another law firm and explore your options. Most firms will at least hear your case before charging you, and you can probably get them to accept your case on a contingency basis where they get a portion of your winnings only if they are able to win the case. The fee will end up being 1/3 or 1/4 of your winnings, but 2/3 or 3/4 of something is far better than nothing. Have you contacted the state bar or whatever legal organization exists that overseas lawyers. Have you tired to file a complaint with them? Has anyone else? How long has this lawyer been practicing, and what is his record?
Single Mother Custody Rights?
I Have A 5 Month Old Baby And Her Father Hasnt Seen Her In 2 Months Now. He Is On The Birth Certificate But Is Not In Our Life. I Was Wanting To Know About Having My Child'S Last Name Changed From His To Mine And Also About Going Out Of The State Temporarily. Just A Little Vacation. Do I Need His Permission Even Though We Were Never Married And I Was Told That Means I Have Custody??
True, never married couples, whoever the child is with has custody and its usually the mother.
Because there is no custody agreement, you can visit/move wherever you want, as often as you want.
If he ever were to call the police or something crazy saying you are keeping him from his child (not because he really wants to see the child, just to be spiteful) , the police would ask him for the court documents showing you are violating a court order, if there is none the police cant enforce anything.
If you need a passport there is a section where you can file saying the childs father has not seen the child in so long, you have to give last known whereabouts etc and it takes a lot longer but you can get one.
However name changes are complicated, if the father is ok changing it then he can sign the papers, however if he is not you will need to get a lawyer.
Been through the same things with my ex, now im married and have a family with someone in the military, we've moved around a lot and had no problems with anything expect the name change.
Need Local Attorney?
You can find an attorney online:
You can contact your State Bar Association and ask for referrals.
If there are local organizations that provide free immigration counseling or services for a discounted price consult with them first, and if necessary ask for referrals.
Another thing you can do is to go to immigration court and approach an attorney and ask if he/she might be able to help you.
