A lot of people do not think about acquiring a lawyer right up until they are in desperate need. The legal issue could be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer or attorney. It may be a felony circumstance you will need to be defended on. Companies want attorneys as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or potentially unfounded business procedures. Tax law firms are also useful whenever dealing with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A huge, full service law firm has numerous legal professionals with distinct areas of competence, so based upon on your personal legal issue, you can immediately retain the perfect legal professional to match your ongoing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal assistance.It is best to obtain a legal professional you can have faith in. You want one with a decent track record, who isstraightforward, reliable, and wins cases. You need to have trust that they will represent you the right way and bill you fairly for their services. Sometimes a referral from a friend or business associate can be very helpful, having said that you should hold your options open and review all the firms available, because when you want legal support, you need it immediately and you want the very best you can manage to pay for.

Can Anyone Give Reference To An Attorney That'Ll Take A Wrongful Death & Liability Case After 3 Yrs Passed?
01/14/05 My Daughter Was Kidnapped Out Her Job Site Where She Worked As A Teachers Aid. Then The Next Day 01/15/05 The Lapd Came Incontact With Suspect & My Daughter,Got Suspect Out The Vehicle At Gun Point,Allowed Him To Somehow Run Back To The Car Where They &Quot;Say They Heard Gun Shots But Opened Fire On The Vehicle 43 Times Striking My Daughter In The Head.My Daughter Left Behind Four Children.Me &Quot;The Mother & Clearly The Executor Of Her Estate Have Been Horrased By Lawyers Fromn The Board Of Education In Regards To My Gardianship.After I Disagreed With My Attorney Making Settlements Without My Knowledge & Permission,She Then Went To Partial Gardians Of Two Of My Daughters Children,Granted Them Executor Of My Daughter To Make Settlement With Board Of Eduacation & Persue Lawsuit Towards Lapd.My Present Attorney Admitted To Making Arrangments & Agreements With Her Creating A Conflict As Well.Im Writing Letters To The Bar Association Requesting Displinary Investigation,What Else Now?
First, my sympathy goes out to you.
It sounds like your attorney may have acted negligently. If this is the case then you are doing the right thing contacting the bar, but they have their limitations. You need to seek another attorney.
The statute of limitations for wrongful death in CA is 1 year, with exceptions. Hopefully your attorney filed and preserved your rights.
The guardianship is a completely different issue and I'm unclear what this entails. Why is the Board of Education contacting you about guardianship? They should not be in contact with you, but should be contacting your attorney.
I would also look at the CA bar website to see if your attorney has had any other complaints. Find another attorney and WRITE down everything you can think of that your current attorney has done to foul up this case.
Aflac Question, Regaurding Personal Injury Claim...?
Ok I Have Aflac Accidental Injury Plan, Where They Pay U For Injuries, And Then Pay So Much For Each Thing That Was Done Regaurding That Injury(Followups, Therapy, Mris, Surgery, Braces, Crutches...Ect)... Any Way I Injured My Knee Back In June Playing Beach Volleyball, And I Got All The Paperwork For The Claim, But I Just Havent Sent It To Them Yet, Because Im Still Being Seen And Treated For The Injury( The Ortho Is Waiting To See If Surgery Is Going To Be Needed) Since Im Still Having A Lot Of Pain With Any Twisting Motions And Squating...
Anyway I Was Wondering If Its Too Late To File The Paper Work To Get The Claim Started Or Should I Be Ok Since Im Still Being Treated For The Same Injury...
I Looked At My Paper Work And The Only Thing That It Said Was The Inital Visit Had To Be Within 72 Hrs Of The Inital Injury, It Said Nothing About How Long U Have To Get The Paper Work In...
Thanks For Any Help, I Will Be Going To The Main Office On Monday Just Wanted To Be Prepared
you can file the claim within reasonable anytime regardless if you are still seeking treatment. you should file your claim though so that AFLAC will send you a check.
i have filed claims as soon as the day after the accident (then you "continue" the claim for any additional treatment) all the way out to a claim that was 5 year in the making (the policy holder just forgot)
depending on you agent, you might be able to file through them, your agent can help out faster if something is wrong and they will make sure all of you paperwork is in order. TRUST ME, its a whole lot better than talking to someone a 1000 miles away (im in michigan, world wide HQ is in georgia)
Disabled, Divorcing, Can I Ask For Alimony?
My Husband And I Have Been Together For 14 Years. 13 Of Which Married. His Children, From Two Previous Marriages, Have Made Life Hard For Me. But Long Story Short, He Claims That His Poor Relationship With His Children Is My Fault. Regardless Of Facts And All I Have Been Through I Want To Know If I Can Get Alimony. I Have Been Fully Disabled Since 2004. Although I Am Grateful For My Disability Money It Just Won'T Be Enough To Live On. I Get $800 A Month. He Only Pays $78 Per Week Child Support, Which Is Based On What He Used To Make A Few Years Back. Now He Makes Roughly $11 An Hour And Works 12 Hours A Day 5 Days A Week. It Has Been Like That For The Last Two Years.
He Also Ran Up The Bill On One Of My Credit Cards, Not All By Himself, But I Can Prove That What Was Spent For Him. I Only Owe $1000, But Am Not Sure I Can Pay It Off Without Him.
Is It Reasonable For Me To Ask For Alimony?
Vehicle Insurance (Old Beat Up Van, He Has New Car) $75
Medications $50-75 (Often More)
Dr. Co Pay $40 A Month More Of Less Depending.
I Would Have No Money To Live On. Is It Reasonable, Or Could I Even Expect, To Get Alimony?
I Can'T Even Afford An Attorney, So I Don'T Even Know How That Will Go Down?
Alimony is get back on your feet money to keep you in the same standard of living & it's completely reasonable whether you get disability or not, that doesn't cancel out his obligations.
Child support payments need to be adjusted as well, according to his new pay scale & not the old one.
Need A Lawyers Advice Please... Family Law Questions..?
Ok Im Going To Try To Make This A Short One.
Im Wanting To Leave My Husband, He Is Very Verbally Abusive And Has A Revengeful Temper. We Have A 14 Mth Baby Together. I Also Have 2 Other Children, But They Live With Their Father. I Have Been A Stay At Home Home For A Long Time Now, But Iam Out Looking For A Job Now. Back To My Husband..... He Has A Bad Drinking Problem And Drug Problem As Well. He Does Carry A Full Time Job, But When He Gets Off He Comes Home And Hangs Out In His Shop With His Buddies Still 1-2Am And We Don'T See Him Until The Next Day. Im Tired Of The Drugs And The Drinking And Feel I Need A Better Life For Me And My Son. My Husband Has Cheated On Me, Lied To Me Sooo Many Times, And Betrayed Me. He Has Done The Most Lowest Things To Me That I Will Never Understand Why He Did Them.
Im A Great Mother And A Great Wife, And I Feel I Don'T Deserve What He Has And What He Is Doing To Me.
He Has Had 1 Dui, Been Arrested For Growing Weed In His Home (This Was Before Him & I Got Together) And He Has Also Gotten A Cdv For Hitting His Last Girlfriend. So Yea He Doesn'T Have A Good Past Record. I Could Go On And On About What He Has Done To Me, But I Will Get To The Questions..
1. I Don'T Have No Money.. So What Would You Suggest I Do First?
2. Do I Have To Leave My Home, Can I Kick Him Out?
3. And How Do I Begin Child Support On Him? He Is Also Paying Child Support For His 5 Yr Old Son Too.
4. What Will I Need To Get Proof Of? He Owns A 2 Story House That He Rents Out Mthly, And He Also Has 3 Boats And A 1969 Camero And Alot Of Other Stuff. Im Not Looking To Take Him To The Gutters, But What I Have Been Through With Him... By God I Deserve Something Out Of It...
5. Can I Get A Restraining Order On Him When I Still Live With Him, But I Sleep In A Separate Bedroom?
6. And Do You Suggest I Pull A Drug Test On Him? Because He Will Fight Me, And He Will Fight Me Hard... His Dad Has Lots Of Money Because Of The Company He Owns, That My Husband Works For.
7. And What About The Custody Of Our Child? Because I Really Don'T Want Him Having Our Son, Because Of His Drinking And Drug Use!
Please Will You Answer My Questions And Be Honest At What Im Against. Im Clueless! Thank You So Much For Taking The Time To Read This... God Bless
Get an attorney. For your own protection, get an attorney.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter.
(>>>>>If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is NOT a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
In A Child Abuse Case Will A Contingency Lawyer Take The Case?
There is no such thing as a contingency lawyer. Lawyers in specific fields of law take cases on a contingency basis. That does not make them contingency lawyers. There is no contingency on their licenses whatsoever. It is unlikely that such a case would be taken on contingency.
I Have To Sue Legal Aid Legal Aid Says To Sue Legal Aid How Do I Get A Lawyer How?
Lawyers That I Can Not Pay Say To Get A Lawyer
Before you sue an attorney what you need to do is to contact the local bar association and file a complaint. This puts the attorneys office under review, in your case it would put the legal aid office under review.
