Finding A Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will notice that there are countless lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise they specialize in your type of case. This can make the entire process of finding one with a great deal of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it is possible to define your research off to the right one out of almost no time. The first task is to make a selection of the lawyers which can be listed in your area that specialize in your needs. When you are causeing this to be list you need to only include those that you may have a good vibe about depending on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down through taking a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you should be able to find how many years they have been practicing and some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list must have shrunken further to those that you just felt had professional websites plus an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then spend some time to look up independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure to see the reviews rather than just counting on their overall rating. The information within the reviews will give you a sense of the way that they connect to their clientele and the length of time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, it is advisable to meet up with at least the past three lawyers which have the credentials you are looking for. This gives you time to truly evaluate how interested they may be in representing both you and your case. It really is important to follow all of these steps to actually find someone that has the best amount of experience to help you get the best possible outcome.

Can I File A Lawsuit/Criminal Charges?
Here'S The Situation:
I Am A High School Student At A Pretty Good Private School. I Have Been Doing An Independent Project For The Past Two Weeks Which Involves Using My Computer Everyday. My Teacher Told Me To Sit In The Lobby At A Table. My Work Space Is A Chair At A Table About 2 Feet Away From A Wall.
One Day, I Left My Computer Plugged In And Sitting On The Table While I Visited A Classroom During Break. While In The Class Room, I Hear From A Frantic Classmate That &Quot;Billy&Quot; And &Quot;Bob&Quot; (Fake Names) Had Knocked My Computer Over. I Rush Back And Find It On The Table But In A Different Position. I Tried Powering On The Machine But Notice That There Is Hard Drive Damage And Motherboard Damage. This Was Confirmed But The It Department And A Senior Administrator. Note That Those Who Knocked My Computer Did Not Tell Me Themselves. I Confronted One Who Stated That He Had Knocked My Computer Over But Did Feel That It Was Too Damaged. The Other Did Not Apologize Until A Note Of Concern Went To His Parents.
The Problem Is That The Parents Of Those Students State That They Have No Responsibility For The Damages. They Did Not Call Until 6 Days After The Incident Nor Did They Apologize. They Claim That I Should Not Have Left My Stuff There And That It Was An Accident. Total Damages Are Around 1500 Usd.
My Mom And I Are Thinking About Taking This To Court. By Now, The Issue Isn'T The Money, But A Lack Of Respect. In Addition, There Might Be Discrimintation. We Are Not As Well Off As The Other People (I Am On Financial Aid) And The Kids Are White/Jewish While I Am Asian.
If Anyone Has Any Useful Suggestions, Especially Those In Criminal Law, Please Answer.
First of all, this isn't a criminal action. There was no intent. And even if it was criminal, then all you have authority to do is report it to the police. Since neither you nor your Mom is the District Attorney, then neither of you has the authority to file criminal charges. The police aren't going to make an arrest over this, and charges will not be filed, so get the whole criminal matter stuff out of your head.
While we're on the subject of getting issues out of your head, get the discrimination angle out of there too. This was not discrimination in the least bit. And even if it was, proving it would be next to impossible. You would need a statement from them that they targeted you because of your race and intentionally destroyed the computer because of your race. Even in your own story that wasn't the case. Even you say they were "screwing around". This wasn't targeted racial discrimination, so get over yourself and quit acting like it was.
Finally, we reach the negligence issue. You do have a case for a valid lawsuit on the theory of negligence. You mom will need to file suit against the other boys and their parents for the damages to the laptop. Since the damages are only $1500, this can be filed in small claims court without the assistance of a lawyer.
What Is The Average Cost Of A Custody Attorney?
I Was Talking To My Baby'S Father About How I'M Concerned That He Doesn'T Seem To Care For Our Child, And His Parents Took That To Mean I Can'T Handle Full Custody. We Are Both Adults But Apparently His Parents Are Just Going To Decide Everything For Him, While I Meanwhile Have A Part Time Job And Have Been Doing Fantastic On My Own. I Just Don'T Want Him To Abandon My Child Like My Father Abandoned Me. Anyways, I Don'T Know What An Attorney Would Cost, Or If Any Of You Know A Way O Reduce The Cost, Thanks! I Won'T Let My Baby Get Taken From Me, No Matter The Cost.
Do you currently have legal custody? If so, relax...the father and his family would have to PROVE that you are an unfit mother. That is very difficult to do, custody orders are rarely changed without a really good reason.
Need Legal Help, Lawyer Theft?
My Mother Got Into An Accident 2 Years Ago Had To Go To The Hospital And A Few Months Of Therapy. She Has Been Represented By A Small Law Firm In Nj Were She Lives At, A Few Weeks Ago They Called Her And Told Her That Her Case Was Done And That She Needed To Go Into Their Offices.
Once There They Told Her That What Little They Got Off The Case It Went To Medical And Lawyer Fees The Lawyer Representing Her Offered Her A Consolation Check On The Amount Of 2,500 Made To Her From His Personal Checking Acct Just For The Time She Had Lost. He Then Tried To Seduced Her Into Signing Some Documents That She Did Not Signed But She Said That When He Showed Her Those Papers She Saw A Lump Sump Stating $75,000 But Then He Took It Away From Her When She Said She Was Not Signing That, She Went On And Told Him That She Does Not Want Him To Write Him A Personal Check, But Rather She Would Like A Company Check Made To Her And She Wanted A Copy Of Those Documents…. He Said No And Almost Forced Her To Sing Those Documents.
Then She Called Me And Told Me What Had Happened, Apparently Now They Even Had A One Of My Mom’S Friends Trying To Convince Her To Sing The Stuff And Take The Small Check! I Told Her To Hold Off And Let Me Do Some Research And See What The Deal Is…
What Do You Guys Think Is Going On? Were Can I Get Help For This Type Of Problems?
A client should never feel pressured to sign.
The settlement sounds low, but it could happen. Maybe at first look they thought they could get more, but later facts where against it.
And if a lawyer had judged the case wrong, it would be reasonable for a lawyer to pay out of pocket, it could happen that way.
But almost forcing her to sign. That puts everything else into question.
How reasonable is your mother? If your mom over reacts to things, then talk to the lawyer to see what the real story is. If your mothers story is absolutely true, and he was forcing her to sign something, then you might need a new lawyer.
I'm not sure, but my feeling is that the new lawyer would tell you not to even talk to the old lawyer.
