Who Are The Best Slip And Fall Attorneys?
Keep this in mind...you sue someone for slip and fall, they will have their lawyer present. Their lawyer will hire someone like me who is a licensed private investigator to investigate.
It is VERY hard to prove that you slipped and fell as a result of negligence on the defendant. Fail to prove your case then the defendant becomes the plaintiff and sues you. It is VERY easy for them to win their lawsuit. Usually double what you were going after.
Remember the burden of proof falls to you as the plaintiff. You better have a dam good case otherwise your going to be out a lot of money.
In Getting A Criminal Defense Attorney, Would It Be Better To Get An Attorney That Knows The Judges Well≫?
My Family Member Is Involved In A Felony Case, And I Am Currently Seeking An Attorney To Solve The Case. I Have Heard That Finding A Local Attorney That Knows The Judge Well Would To Our Advantage, At The Same Time I Have Heard Opposite Opinion That Attorneys Who Knows The Judge Would Be Less Inclined To Fight Aggresively For The Clients Rights Since He/She Would Want To Maintain A Good Relatinoship With The Da And The Judge. I Have Looked Up And Met A Few Lawyers, And Pretty Much Have 2 Candidates To Decide: A Local Attorney With More Than 20 Years Of Experience And Knows The Judge Really Well, And An Aggressive Young Attorney ( She Just Got Out Of Law School Last Year) Which Seems To Be Able To Fight For Our Rights. Of Course The Fees For The First Attorney Differs The Second One By $1000. Which Attorney Would Put Us In A Better Place? This Is My First Time To Ever Seek And Hire An Attorney, So Any Advice On The Issue Will Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks!
Been there done that several times. Every time, even as recently as two months ago, I went with the cheaper attorney and every single time it has cost more in the long run than it would have with the more experienced attorney.
The less experienced attorney may miss things which become instinctive to a seasoned lawyer.
I think of it as a 17 year old driver and a 40 year old driver. The 17 year old may pay attention to everything that’s going on and seem much more alert. The seasoned person may seem not as focused on every little nuance. Thing is on the big matters there won’t be much of a difference IMO. Both will keep it between the lines and stop and go when required. But if things come up during the course of events it will be instinctive for the seasoned person to reply correctly and immediately.
I have never saved money or time in the long run by selecting a lawyer from the bottom shelf. I wouldn’t pick the best in the state, but the best in the locality, well, there is a reason for that. And even a more seasoned attorney is not blind to market demands and what others are charging. They aren’t gong to price themselves out of business but their business experience may allow them to price it more realistically. (for example, they know of expenses from the get go that may be incurred whereas the person trying to ‘land’ the client may have fees they don’t know of, yet)
Knowing the local players (judge, DA, maybe officers) only helps in the long run. I work with these same players everyday, all day. It is in the clients best interest when people return my calls, agree to meet with me, give me the benefit of the doubt when I have a history of trust with them. A common misconception, among many, are that they are all in some conspiracy or that they are like the Masons and it’s some secret club. All of that it is insane.
About knowing the judge. Sure, if you spend hundreds of hours in front of the same judge it helps enormously. Some judges are more strict, some hate various types of offense, some judges won’t allow weekend jail time or work release, some judges are more prone to believe whatever the police officers say. Other judges are the opposite of all of these. While others are more receptive to constitutional case law, some to state case law, some want to hear the drama of the incident, some want to hear repentance – others don’t.
Knowing the parties going often flags when you need to get a continuance, or what trial strategy to use.
Otherwise it would be like going to a brand new hair stylist every month.
Bottom line, I think in general you will save more time, money and be happier with the results by using a more experienced attorney.
The Model Rules of Professional Responsibility are strict and unforgiving. Knowing the judge isn’t going to change the facts and the judge must weigh the facts and apply the law. They must and everyone knows it. If they don’t or do it wrong the DA or the defense will appeal to the judge’s bosses, the court of appeals and no judge wants to be overruled.
How To Find The Best Lawyer In A Specific Field?
In A Nutshell, I'M Doing Legwork For A Friend Who'S Looking For The Best Lawyer In The Area For A Wrongful Death Suit Against Healthcare Corporations. I Have Tried What I Could Think Of And Dig Up For Her, But Am Left With A Bunch Of People It Seems Just Advertising For Themselves And Others In Their Locale And Even The State Bar Association Told Me That They Only Recommend Lawyers Who Have Paid Them To Do So. Anybody Can Also Pay The Better Business Bureau And That Is How They Get On That List. So Is There A Real Way I Can Find The Best Lawyer For The Job In This Specialty In Southern Wisconsin? She Says She Doesn'T Just Want Her Pound Of Flesh, She Wants Half The Freakin Cow. ?
Try this: Google "wrongful death suits" with the name of your county, Wisconsin, and click the "News" button. The articles on the cases will give you the names of the attorneys, or at least the firm. Most likely, there are one or two that win big settlements for their clients in your area. Just advise your friend to contact as many as possible and get a few opinions before she makes any decisions. (If it's a rural area, you may have to check some neighboring counties.)
Need A Decent Workers Comp Lawyer In Nyc?
I Am Looking To Change Lawyers For A Wc Case That Has Already Been Decided In My Favor And Now Has The Potential For A Buy-Out. Sloth Does Not Even Begin To Describe The Lawyers Working On This As They Have Done Essentially Nothing For 2 Years.
I Have Contact Some But There Seems To Be Some Unwritten Code Of Bs Conduct That Does Not Allow One Lawyer To Take Over From Another.
In Short: How Do I Find A Decent Wc Lawyer To Take Over The Case?
you will find getting a different lawyer difficult due to the fact that the state of New York sets limits on how much they can charge and the amount you are going to receive is already pretty much set. your settlement will be based on your age, your train-ability, the prospect for employment, vocational rehab needed and the % OF TOTAL DISABILITY SET BY YOUR DOCTOR. this amount can be increased by a percentage IF you are unable to return to your previous employment. there is very little a lawyer will do for you once the amount is determined and offered to you there is a little room for negotiation but not a whole lot (ALL SETTLEMENTS HAVE TO BE APPROVED BY THE STATE). the whole purpose of the states workers compensations plans is to guarantee proper settlement for the injured while eliminating the need and added expense of attorneys and litigation.
this is the website for New York States Workers Compensation Commission:
you will find the information you need to handle this yourself if the insurance carrier has already been paying and you are at MMI (maximum medical improvement) and your PPD or PTD has been set save the amount the lawyer would get and put that extra in your pocket. (if possible, you may have already committed to paying your attorney)
i settled my own case, 6-figure settlement with continuing medical expenses, in Tennessee and the laws are almost identical. most states now have very similar laws and structures for workers compensation and for their settlement.
Must Lawyers Be Fingerprinted To Practice Law?
Are Lawyers Required To Be Fingerprinted Before Practicing Law In All 50 States? Research Paper For School. I Google It But Fingerprints And Lawyers Only Brings Up Case Law. Hoping To Hear From Someone Who Knows First Hand And Could Point Me To A Source. Thanks
Yes, before the attorney has taken the bar exam, they must submit to a fingerprint and background check before they can take their first case. After the background check is completed and the attorney is cleared, they will get their license to practice law.
What'S The Difference Between A Statutory Law And A Constitutional Law?
I Was On Wikipedia And They Show A Map Of The United States. They Use Different Colors To Represent The States Laws About Same-Sex Marriage, I'M Not Going To List Them All But Mississippi, Tennessee, & Missouri Are Red And That Means &Quot;Constitution Bans Same-Sex Marriage&Quot;. But Pennsylvania, West Virginia, & Virginia Are Light Red And That Means &Quot;Statute Bans Same-Sex Marriage&Quot;..
I Just Dont Understand The Difference Between The Constitution Ban & Statue Ban..
And Furthermore Are They Talking About Their Own Personal Constitution Or The Countries Constitution, Any Help Would Be Great... And I'M Not Here Debating Same Sex Marriage I Just Wanna Know What The Difference Between A Statutory Law And A Constitutional Law Is, Lol.
Constitutional law has higher authority than statutory law. Statutes can be and most often are adopted by the state legislature and if a statute is deemed by the courts of the state to be a violation of the state constitution, then the statute is unconstitutional. But the state constitutions are adopted by the voters of the state themselves. The process of amending state constitutions is often much harder than the process of passing a bill out of the state legislature.
A reason why a state might adopt a provision into the state constitution to ban gay marriage is to prevent the courts from legalizing gay marriage via an "interpretation" of the state constitution. Once the state constitution explicitly says gay marriage is banned, then the courts will obviously not render that interpretation.
