Do You Have To Be Present In Court For A Lawsuit Against A Company?
I Am Suing For A Personal Injury Incurred By A Medical Device And The Lawyer Contacted Is Out Of State. How Does Something Like This Normally Work? Would I Have To Show Up In Court If They Are Out Of State? I'M Not Good At Speaking In Public
I agree with some of the answers you received. But next time be more specific and articulate. What does "lawyer contacted" mean. Why not say the lawyer who will represent me or us is out of town--if that indeed is the case. If on the other hand you are talking about an out-of-state attorney who is representing a few people at the same time, still I feel you need to be accompanied by legal counsel.
And whether you will be accompanied by a lawyer, or not, you should be present at that court.
Don't ever shy from your rights. And as to you not being good at talking in public, don't even bother thinking that. Just tell yourself "I will be myself, no matter what. Even if my words don't come out fluent. Even if I do forget to mention something. This is my case and my situation and I will stand up for it!"
Legal Advice For Information?
Recently My Realtor Showed Us Three Houses... We Filled Out Background Check Paper Work And General Information Such As Ss#, Home Adresses All That Plus Possible Incomes I Or My Four Roomates Could Have Had. In The Middle Of Transaction We Never Got Called Back. I Called The Agency And They Told Me He Has Not Worked There In A Week He Was Let Go. None Of Us Signed Confidentiality Forms Or Anything For All We Know He Has All Of Our Information And He Does Have All Of Our Cell Phone Numbers... Anyone Have Any Recommendations Or Any Terms For Which I Could Sew Upon And I Need This To Be Legitimate Not Such An Assumption Thank You
It all depends.....have you advised the Realtor Office of the situation? Maybe all the information was left in their hands as potention clients of the firm. Hopefully he just left and tossed your information out without thinking of using that information to screw you guys over. Good luck with this one!
Identify The Steps In The Legal Research Process?
I Need Some Help Here, This Is An Elective, I Just Need Someone To Simply This For Me. Thank You
I never knew there were specific steps, but here goes:
When I was in law school, we had to file legal analyses. We started with the issue and divided it up into relevant questions that needed to be discussed. Then we went to Westlaw and checked out the keynotes for cases that addressed those very points. After that we went to Shepherd's to look up those cases, and see how the courts had treated them (upheld, cited, overturned, etc.) If anything was noted as a specific treatment, I'd look up that case and see if it pertained to my issue. If it did, I'd start the process all over until I had the most on-point cases that were the most up-to-date.
After I had my cases, I'd write a discussion of the cases, and write a conclusion as to what the court would do based on these cases.
How Many Victories In A Year Is Considered Very Good For A Criminal Defense Attorney?
In A Medium Sized City Of About 500,000 People. I Know A Lot Of It Has To Do With How Many Cases Are Tried To Begin With, But I'M Just Looking For A Good Ball-Park Figure. Preferably, Anyone With Experience With Attorneys Or Court Should Answer
This is not the right way to measure the situation.
The biggest factors in whether a case will be won or lost are all outside the attorney's control. It is only in a very small portion of cases where the quality of the attorney will have any impact on the likelihood of a conviction. Some attorneys will specialize in cases that are easier to defend (e.g., white collar crime, drug possession cases where suppression of evidence may be a common issue, etc.) whereas other attorneys may specialize in cases that are much harder to defend (e.g., major felony trials where the prosecution and police have gone to great lengths to conduct a proper investigation and gather evidence).
As you mention, it also will depend on the number of cases tried by the attorney. If the attorney tries serious felony or murder cases, odds are they may have only had ~5-10 clients in the past year, and odds are that all of them were convicted. On the other hand, an attorney specializing in misdemeanor DUI law may handle well in excess of 50 cases a year, in which case they probably have acquired a one or tmaybe two not guilty verdicts from those cases. Criminal defendants are almost always found guilty, because there are significant protections in place to ensure that a person is guilty (and that it can be proven) before they are even charged.
Most attorneys who try only major crimes will likely see only a handful of not guilty verdicts in their entire careers. More often, cases will be dismissed before trial or terminated at the preliminary hearing stage, prior to the trial being conducted.
What a good attorney CAN do is work with a client to get a good plea bargain, minimize the sentence, etc. etc. etc.
It is difficult for the general public to distinguish among attorneys. Personally, when selecting an attorney, I would start by looking for attorneys who practice ONLY criminal defense law, who have a minimum of 5-10 years of experience, who previously worked for the agency prosecuting you (e.g., the same DA's office, the US Attorney office, etc.), and who did well at a top nationally ranked law school (e.g., Harvard, Yale, Duke, Stanford, Georgetown) or a the best local law school. Of course, this attorney will be much more expensive.
I would also want an attorney who specializes in or has significant experience in cases of my type. i.e., if it is DUI, I would want someone who mainly or exclusively practices DUI law. If it is murder, I would want someone who has tried several murder cases. If it is white collar crime, someone specializing in that. As a practical matter, this is a bit of a "wish list" and you will not find attorneys meeting these criteria in a town of 500K people, and if you are able to find them, their rates will be astronimical.
After getting a short list, I would interview each attorney and make a final decision based on my gut feeling and the rate the attorney charges.
I would also be cautious of any attorney whose rate is significantly below the local average.
Going To Family Court?
Can Anyone Help.. Two Divorce People The Ex Husband Is Taking The Ex Wife To Court Because He Doesn'T Like How The Daughter Is Dressing Or How She Acts.. The Mother Says That She Doesn'T Act Bad At All At Home (Lives With Mother) Has Friends, Teachers And Mothers Friends That Say She Is Very Polite...She Just Likes To Look Different ( She Likes To Dress Punk) She Does All The Makeup For School Plays And Likes Horror Movies.. Dad Thinks She Is Depressed.. He Wants Her To Start Her Visting Weekends Again But Can'T Watch Too Much Tv Can'T Wear Her Hair The Way She Does And Can'T Wear Her Clothes.. The Girl Is 15.. Any Ideas About Going To Court In How To Win Against The Father.. Oh And The Father Wants Her To Go To Counseling Which She Said She Would To Prove Him Wrong..
There are a few items that you did not mention; such as, has the Mom contacted her lawyer to seek counsel on these obvious frivolous concerns of the father? Had the Office of the Official Guardian been involved with the divorce proceedings? Did the 15 year old have her own attorney? By law, every child is to have full and competent and independent legal representation which is provided through Justice for Children.
No Family Court Judge/Magistrate or Adjudicator will just willfully grant the father his requests. The onus is on the father to prove his case of depression regarding his daughter. Also, he is going to have to prove that it is appropriate for weekend visits to commence once again. The Courts will review the reasons/excuses why the visits stopped in the first place.
The Mom's lawyer should have Mom prepared to provide documents from the girl's medical practitioner regarding his assessment of her mental health, letters, from the school - including the Principal, Guidance Counsellor and Teachers to affirm that the girl does not act or display depressive symptoms at school. Ideally, if this family attends Church, a member of the Clergy could also write a letter stating his/her opinions and observations of the girl.
My best advice for any parent going through a situation such as this is to have as much documentation available for the lawyer and the Courts. Under NO circumstances should Mom discuss her Plan of Action with her ex husband and both parents should be doing their best to keep their daughter out of the line of fire; otherwise, the poor girl could become depressed. Parents should not be using their children as pawns.
Tell Mom to get to her lawyer's office as soon as possible. The longer she waits, the less time that they have to work through all of the issues that they are facing and to prepare the best possible legal counsel for the daughter.
It is also important to remember that either Parent has the legal right to request ammendments to the Divorce Decree at any time as long as they are not frivilous.
One good point is that the daughter is 15 and the Courts will listen to what she "wants" because the Courts feel that at that age, the child is old enough to know who they want to spend their time with.
Good Luck to All.
