How Can Dishonest Lawyers Get Away With Stealing People'S Land?
I Know Someone (Person A) Who Had A 'Handshake Agreement' With Person B (A 'Friend' Of Person A) That Was Supposedly A Loan. Person A Did Sign A Document Believing That It Spelled Out The Conditions Of Repayment Of The Loan. After A Made Payments To B For Many Years, B Claimed The Land As His Own And Claimed That The Payments Were Actually Rental Payments. Years Of Court Battles Followed Until A Just Gave Up (He Was Old And Tired).
Also, During Wwii My Mother'S First Husband Was Killed In Fighting, Leaving Her The Sole Parent Of 2 Children. Somehow A Lawyer Cheated Her Out Of Her Home.
On What Legal Ground Do Some Lawyers Do Things Like This? On What Legal Basis Would They Draw Proceedings Out Even If They Have No Legal Claim On The Land?, Do They Have Any Real Legal Standing Or Do They Just Take Advantage Of The Fact That Some People Are Vulnerable And Can'T Fight For Long, If At All?
Person A thinks B is a crook; Person B thinks A is a crook. Because A lost, the attorney is now the crook. The attorney's role is to represent the client to the best of his ability. The attorney does not know for sure who is right. How could he? If the attorney's client told the truth, and no legal basis exists to dispute the other party's claim, the vast majority of attorneys would drop the case. Of course, there are exceptions.
The problem with your argument is you assume: (1) the attorney knows the truth; and; (2) even knowing the truth, no legal basis exists for the claim. In any event, nothing you have stated indicates dishonesty by the attorney.
*** Ok, lets assume the lawyer is a crook. Does the judge know that the lawyer is a crook? In the vast majority of cases, both sides call each other crooks. There is no smoking gun. Instead, you have two sides telling their story. Their story is testimony. Testimony is evidence. Winning is simply having the fact finder (judge or jury) believe the facts as you present them or finding a convincing legal argument.
Anyway, your question is loaded. A dishonest lawyer or client would not win. If dishonesty is established, then the lawyer is sanctioned and the client loses the case. However, first you have to establish that the lawyer or client is dishonest. How do you do that? Without an admission by the dishonest party, dishonesty generally cannot be established.
All evidence conflicts - that doesn't prove dishonesty. Language is inherently ambiguous. A misunderstanding or misstatement doesn't prove dishonesty. While you cast things in black & white, the reality is that even honest people can't get their story straight. Dishonesty can rarely be proven and that is why dishonest people win.

Decedent Lived In St. Lucie County But Hearings Should Not Be Required So While I'D Like St. Lucie County Recommendations I'D Also Appreciate Recommendations For Lawyers Across The State.
Probate fees are provided by Florida Statute. Depending on the size of the estate, you should be quoted fees that are close. Estimate 3% of the PROBATED estate will be for attorney fees. In addition, you may have extra-ordinary fees incurred. Of course you can agree to higher or lower attorney fees.

Joint Legal Custody V Joint Physical Custody?
From My Understanding,
Joint Legal Is So Both Parents Can Make Decisions For The Child.
Physical Is So Both Parents Have The Child At Their Home With Court Ordered Time.
But.. With Joint Legal, Can Both Of The Parents Still Have The Child At Their Home For A Set Dates And Time? Like Every Other Weekend Or Whatever. What Would Be The Point Of Legal? Besides Just Making Decisions If You Cant Have A Set Date And Time To Have One On One With Your Child?
Thats My Confusion. I Hope That Makes Sense And Someone Can Clear Me Up On This Lol
Legal custody involves decisions for the child to include medical, religious, educational, recreational, etc. Joint legal custody means that both parents must agree on these decisions OR they must bring the dispute to a family court judge to make a decision. With regard to other (day-to-day/minor) decisions, joint legal custody means that the parent who physically has the child is allowed to make decisions for the child during that time. So, if dad has the child on the weekend he is allowed to take the child to get a hair cut or can give the child meat or candy (even if mom is a vegetarian and doesn't allow candy in her home).
Physical custody involves a description of where the child will be at any given date or time.
Do I Need To Seek Legal Counsel?
I Was Stopped In Pa And Cited With &Quot;Criminal Mischief - Intentionally Damaging Real Or Personal Property Of Another&Quot;, &Quot;Consume An Alcoholic Beverage Underage&Quot; And &Quot;Public Drunkenness&Quot;. The Two Alochol Related Citations Are Due To Denial Of A Breathalyzer (Which I Was Never Described The Consequences Of Denying It By The Officer) And The Mischief Citation Was Because I Slapped A Parked Car With My Hand (This Is What Brought The Attention Of The Officer). I Was Not Viably Under The Influence Of Alcohol By Any Means, I Just Denied Taking The Breathalyzer. I Am 20 Years Old And Will Be Turning 21 In Less Than 1 Month. What Is My Best Course Of Action? How Long Can Each Of These Mentioned Charges Stay On My Record? Do I Have A Right To Be Explained The Consequences Of Denying The Breathalyzer? I Am Not A Pa Citizen.
It may be best for you to seek legal counsel, but you are more than likely going to receive some fines and probation. The officer does not have to explain to you the consequences of denying the Breathalyzer. Denying the breathalyzer when the police have some sort of reasonable suspicion you were drinking. You must've been showing other signs you were drinking, even if they were not obvious to you. Also with denying the breathalyzer you are showing you are hiding something, and that can be enough evidence you are guilty. If you are driving and refuse a breathalyzer when they have probable cause your license is automatically suspended for a year.
If you are found guilty those things will remain on your record for life unless you get them expunged.
About How Many Hours Does A Lawyer Work In One Week?
I Am Curious To Know How Stressful A Career In Law Generally Is.
It depends on the job. Private practice tends to be the most stressful and can be among the most stressful careers out there.
For junior lawyers, it often entails long hours (in some big law firms 60 hours a week and 3000 hours a year is not unusual) and even for firms that don't require lawyers to clock that many hours, lawyers live in what is known as a billable hour culture. Law firms make their money by billing the services of their attorneys by the hour and lawyers are valued by the number of hours they bill so it creates a working environment where most lawyers are literally required to account for every 6 to 15 minutes of their workday for at least 8 hours a day on a timekeeping system.
On top of that, more senior lawyers who are partners in a law firm have the pressures of running the firm as a business, spending additional ours maintaining and developing client relations, and handling all the executive administrative responsibilities and overhead issues.
The hours can vary though as some smaller law firms have a business model that does not require continuous long hours at work because it is not extremely ambitious in terms of maximizing profits. The flip side is of course that those law firms don't offer as much income as the other firms.
Government and public interest law tends to be the least stressful. Because lawyers don't have to bill by the hour it relieves a lot of the pressure to work long hours and they don't have to account for their time the way private practice lawyers do. The trade off is that the income for these positions tends to be on the low end.
