Do Lawsuits Come Down To Who Has The Better Lawyer?
In Tv Shows They Always Talk About How Good A Lawyer Is. Does Whether Or Not Someone Has The Better Impact Make That Much Of A Case? Shouldn'T It Come Down To What'S Legal And What'S Not?
So you mean civil law rather than criminal law.
If it's clear which side is right, the quality of the lawyer isn't going to make any difference as long as they present all the evidence. But if it were that obvious, it wouldn't end up in a trial. If you know you're going to lose, it makes far more sense to cut your losses and give in so you don't spend even more money on your lawyer.
So a case that goes to trial is going to have good arguments on both sides, and in civil law, the judge has to decide on the balance of probabilities, unlike a criminal case where the court must only convict if they are sure beyond reasonable doubt. So the question is who is more likely to be right, and the way each side presents their case could tip the balance.
Yes, it's a matter of what's legal and any lawyer should know that, but then it is a matter of applying this to the facts of the case and how the lawyers present those facts matters. No doubt each side has a different version of what the facts are. The judge needs to decide who is more likely to be telling the truth. What sounds reasonable and credible? As Judge Judy so often says on her show, "that doesn't make sense, and if it doesn't make sense it isn't true". If the side that is in the wrong nevertheless manages to present their case in such a way that it DOES make sense, that could be the clinching factor.
Lawson Guitar Review Anyone?
I Found This Perfect Guitar
Butt Is Lawson A Good Brand, Anyone Help Me Here This Is The Guitar
Lawson is an unknown brand and I think you're throwing your money away. There's no way to sell a quality 12 string electric acoustic at that price.
Takamine makes a lefty 12 string, the EC40C-12AN model. It's more than the Lawson but at least it's a known and respected brand.
Why Are There So Many Commercials On Local Tv By/For Disability Lawyers..?
It Used To Be Only Occasionally, But Now It'S Like You See One, Right After Another Offering Tv Viewers 'Top Benefits For Your Disability Claim..' Are They Just Giving It To Anyone Now..?
It's just the latest way for them to drum up business. What the people don't realize is how much it will COST them to use one of them to get disability. There are a lot of people out there trying to get on disability who aren't really disabled. Just because your back hurts and you can no longer lift 100lbs doesn't make you disabled. Let's face it, if you're over 35, everyone has things they can't do anymore.
The problem is, there are so many lazy folks out there trying to get on it that don't need it, that it's harder for people with legitimate disabilities to get it.
If I Cause An Accident While Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol, Will Me Insurance Pay? Should They Pay?
In the US, the standard auto policy does NOT include an exclusion for accidents that occur while the driver is operating under the influence of anything. But the endorsement DOES exist. I have only ever seen it used on commercial auto policies, and only once, actually, in 21 years.
You can, however, be an excluded driver on the policy, in which case, the insurance doesn't apply - regardless of influence.
Should they pay? Absolutely. The POINT of that coverage, is to pay for the damages of the innocent party. The operator will be "punished" by the rating system. Contracts must be adhered to, and the occasional DUI driver is factored into the rates.
Are YOU covered? Who knows? I don't know what country you are in, or what policy form you have, or if you're an excluded operator. Ask your agent, or read your policy.

California Probate Laws?
I Am Trying To Find An Answer For A Friend. His Father Died Two Days Ago. He Left A Will Leaving The House To His Son. Would The House Go Into Probate? And If It Did, Could He Live In The House Or Would He Have To Move?
Your friend needs the advice of a reputable attorney who understands probate/estate/real estate matters.
Your friend needs to make sure he understands what his father's financial situation was and what type of estate plan his father left -- was it a trust or was it a stand-alone will (a lot of people mistakenly refer to a trust as a will and do not understand the difference or the ramifications of the differences). If the father had a trust, properly transferred ownership of the house to the trust (this would be evidenced by a duly-recorded deed) and the trust included language giving the house to your friend there may be no need for a probate.
If there is only a will, your friend and the attorney need to look at the deed -- how did the father hold title to the house? Did the deed contain language transferring ownership (or a life estate interest in the house) to your friend on the death of his father? The deed will trump the will because the father cannot make a bequest of property that he does not own.
There are a number of ways people can "hold title" to property. If the father held title as a single person or as an individual, and made no provisions for transfer of ownership in the deed, the house would likely become a part of the estate and would have to go through probate.
If your friend's father held title as a "joint tenant" with another person or persons then the entire ownership (and any mortgage liability) transfers over to the surviving owner or owner(s) named in the deed (regardless of what the will says). If that person is someone other than your friend, there could be problems.
If your friend's father held title as a "tenant in common" instead of the property ownership automatically passing to the surviving owner or owners named in the deed, as in the case of a property owned on a Joint Tenancy described above; the deceased party's share of the property (together with a corresponding share of any mortgage liability outstanding), will pass to their estate for distribution in accordance with the terms of their estate plan.
There is an old saying that the "devil is in the details" and there are soooooo many details that could cause problems here, for example: Was the father married? Does your friend have a living mother or step-mother who is residing in the home, a minor-aged or disabled sibling/half sibling who is residing in the home? Is there a mortgage or reverse mortgage on the house? If there is a mortgage, was the father the only person legally responsible for making payments (if the house goes to your friend, can he afford the payments he'll inherit; would he want to live there, etc)? If there was a reverse mortgage, was the father the only person legally entitled to receive payments (could your friend afford to pay-off the reverse mortgage without selling the house, would he want to)? Did the father have a lot of debt, owe back taxes (property or income), etc? Are there any debt-related liens against the house?
I hope this helps.
