Where Can I Find A Affordable Lawyer?
My Friend Is In Jail And His Public Defender Is Nothing Its Like She Don't Even Care. I Need A Lawyer That Will Work With The Price With Me Because My Funds Are Limited. The Judge Is Giving Him Time To Get A Lawyer And I Cant Find Anybody That Will Accept Anything Less Then $500. I Don't Know What To Do. I Mean He's Gonna Pay Me Back When He Gets Out, I Just Wish That I Can Find Somebody That Can Get Him Out. If Anybody That Knows A Lawyer That Will Accept $200-300 Up Front Instead Of $500. I Even Called A Lawyer That Would Only Accept $750. If Anybody Knows Of Any Lawyers In Louisville, Ky Please Let Me Know.
The term "affordable attorney" is an oxymoron. If you join one of the pre-paid legal services (I think Caldwell Legal runs about $14/mo.) they provide legal services at discounted rates for members. Maybe join a service on his behalf and ask them. Not sure if it will work. It's just a thought.
(I am in no way affiliated with any pre-paid legal service plan)

THE LAWYER AND THE DUCK
A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural Tennessee. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.
The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this
field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."
The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."
The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the United States and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own.
The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Tennessee . We settle small disagreements like this; with the "Three Kick Rule."
The lawyer asked, "What is the Three Kick Rule?"
The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up."
The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.
The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney.
His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees.
His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth.
The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.
The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet.
Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old fart. Now it's my turn."
[You'll love this part.............
The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck.
THE BLONDE AND THE LAWYER
A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa."
Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.
The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00."
This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.
The lawyer asks the first question.
"What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"
The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands
it to the lawyer.
"Okay" says the lawyer, "your turn."
She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"
The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with
his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer.
Frustrated, he sends e-mail to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00.
The blonde says, "Thank you", and turns back to get some more sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"
Without a word the blonde shrugs, reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
In The Philippines, Can They Charge You For Driving While In The Influence Of Alcohol If You Just Had A Bottle Of Beer?
To begin with, how do law enforcers determine if drivers are driving over the legal limit here? How many cities and municipalities equip their traffic enforcers with breathalyzers, for instance?
In a country where the most popular Filipino athlete endorses its most popular beer, the drunk-driving offense of Mel Gibson seems less controversial than his vitriolic, anti-Semitic outburst at law-enforcement officials who accosted him.
But the United States government takes drunk driving very seriously. Gibson is, in fact, facing criminal charges for driving under the influence of alcohol and having an open container of liquor in his car.
Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is considered a crime in every state in the US. Just to clarify though, driving after consuming alcohol is not necessarily illegal unless the person’s ability to drive is impaired, as defined by law. Driving while having an open container of liquor inside the vehicle is, however, an outright violation in certain jurisdictions, obviously in Malibu, where Gibson was arrested.
Gibson was caught speeding, and so, regardless of whether there was an open container of liquor in his car or not, he had to be tested as mandated by US laws. In the US, if the police see you driving erratically or violating traffic laws, they can automatically submit you to various tests, which determine the amount of alcohol in your blood. A blood-alcohol test by means of a "breathalyzer" and/or urine sample is expressed in terms of milligrams of alcohol per milliliters of blood, or as a percentage. (10 mg/100 ml = 0.01 g/100 g = 0.01%). I think most, if not all, US states have an illegal limit of .08%. I believe Gibson was determined to have .12 percent of alcohol in his blood.
Here in the Philippines, there are also drunk-driving ordinances in most cities, with penalties that include fines, suspension of one’s driving license and jail terms. But, as we all know, enforcement is not as strict as it is in the US.
To begin with, how do law enforcers determine if drivers are driving over the legal limit here? How many cities and municipalities equip their traffic enforcers with breathalyzers, for instance? Are they capable of conducting blood tests to determine if the driver is over the statutory amount? Or do they just rely on smelling drivers, judging their conduct, language (slurred speech, e.g.) and motor movements to determine if they are indeed drunk?
Foreigners often make comments that drunk-driving laws here are a joke. It’s also a culture thing, they say. Filipinos take pride in being able to hold their liquor. They say it seems to be a macho thing for most Filipino males to be able to drink and drive, mocking the popular admonition, "Don’t drink and drive."
Technically, there’s not even a national law against drunk driving. If I recall correctly, Senate President Manny Villar introduced a bill for the purpose when he was still chairman of the Senate finance committee. Under his bill, Villar proposed that persons found guilty for the first time of drunk driving must face a suspension of their driver’s license for one year and be made to pay a fine of P1,000. On the second offense, a fine of P5,000 and a five-year suspension of the driver’s license will be imposed. I don’t recall the bill having gone past the committee level though.
In Makati, Jejomar Binay wants to be stricter not only against drunk driving but also "drugged driving." Last year the Makati City Council passed an ordinance imposing a fine of P2,500 or imprisonment—or both—on persons who drive their vehicles while under the influence of drugs or liquor.
The city government acquired testing kits to be used in checking the blood-alcohol level of intoxicated or drugged drivers. Suspected drivers can also be taken to the Ospital ng Makati, which now conducts testing on a 24-hour basis. So Makati traffic officers don’t need to rely only on physical manifestations of being intoxicated or drugged, which might not be able to hold up in court when cases are filed against those caught red-handed. Just like in the US, the testing is mandatory if you are caught violating traffic or driving errantly.
In Makati, drivers who register a .13-percent blood alcohol level are considered unfit to drive and will be charged according to the drunk-driving ordinance. Interestingly, Gibson would not have been legally drunk in Makati. (Maybe, Filipinos really have a high tolerance for alcohol, otherwise how do you explain the more lenient standards for blood alcohol tests?)
Has the city ordinance encouraged more people in Makati to drink moderately and more responsibly? Obviously, it hasn’t put a stop to drunk driving altogether. That might be an impossible task. But even making a dent on the drunk-driving culture would take time, relentless enforcement coupled with a serious information drive.
Binay directed the Makati Police Department, the city’s Department of Public Safety and the barangays to strictly enforce the ordinance, particularly in the vicinity of Makati’s bars and entertainment establishments. Bar owners were asked to inform their clients about the ordinance against drunk driving, and its corresponding penalties.
Apparently, the advisories failed to reach former Pangasinan congressman Ranjit Shahani, who figured in a car accident in Makati some time ago. Ranjit was allegedly drunk when he rammed another car head-on. Worse, he could only present an expired student’s license (way back in 1992) to the responding officers.
This, along with many other similar incidents, only highlights the need for a strongly enforced drunk-driving law that would lead to fewer alcohol-related accidents and fatalities.
One beer wouldn't register much on the breathalyzer. They won't charge you with DUI. Unless, of course, kung napag-tripan ka lang. (you caught their ire or trip)

Is It Necessary To Us An Attorney Or An Attorney Web Site To Form An Llc And Can I Do It Myself In Fl?
I'Ll Be Doing It To Hold My Real Estate Investments Under.
I did mine through the Company Corporation at LLC.com.
You can also check out LegalZoom.com, owned by the famous attorney Robert Shapiro. I know many people who formed their LLC there.
If you have questions, you could always call a local attorney or stop by their office for a free consultation, get your answers, then go to legalzoom.com. Otherwise you'll pay double for an attorneys time to file for you.
Both sites have support and FAQ's about LLC's and what's right for your situation. So you could find your answers there if you didn't want to go an attorneys office.
These two sites (legalzoom.com & llc.com) are the only ones I would recommend. I did a lot of research and asking around before I formed my LLC and these two were the highest recommended to me.
Child Support And Visitation?
How Does Child Support And Visitation Work When The Parents Are In 2 Different States?
Child support and visitation should not be considered as exclusive; that is, if the child stays a few weeks with the parent paying support, the amount of child support does not change. You also cannot stop a parent from seeing a child while their child support is in arrears.
Parents have to come to an amicable decision as to how much time and when a child will spend with the other non-custodial parent. I would think that the cost of transporting the child between states should be split, too.
