A big, full service law firm has a lot of legal professionals with diverse areas of abilities, so relying on your legal issue, you can promptly retain the very best lawyer to fulfill your up-to-date need without having to start your search each time you need legal support.It is best to obtain a legal professional you can believe. You really want one with a good record, who isstraightforward, reliable, and wins cases. You want to have assurance that they will stand for you thoroughly and invoice you reasonably for their services. Sometimes a recommendation from a pal or business associate can be useful, having said that you should keep your options open and examine all the firms available, for the reason that when you require legal support, you need it immediately and you would like the finest you can manage to pay for.

Why Can't I Find An Attorney?
I Have An Examination Under Oath Mid September. I Have Been Trying To Get An Attorney To Be There To Protect My Interests And Keep The Euo Attorney From Straying From The Claim. House Burnt Down And The Claim Is For 552K. House Located North Of Chattanooga Tn. Everybody Is Eithor Too Busy Or Doesn't Want To Do It.
Money controls access to protection from the abuse of the law by attorneys. A fair-minded judge should be all you need: a judge who will stop the opposing attorney from asking questions that are not relevant or are unduly invasive of your privacy. The custom has become, however, that you must hire another attorney to "remind" the judge that certain questions are unreasonable, and, if you do not have a friendly attorney with you, the judge will play stupid, as if he cannot recognize an unreasonable question when he hears it. The application of laws is a gigantic extortion racket to which the police, the judges, and the lawyers are all interested parties. If you want to change things now, you'll have to fight and win a civil war.
Pleading No Contest To A Criminal Charge?
If You Plea No Contest To A Criminal Charge Can A Attorney Still Be Able To Help You Or /Is It To Late Because Your Plea Was No Contest Instead Of Not Guilty
It depends on what state you are in and what the status of your case is. It may be that you plead no contest/nolo contendere and were submitted to a deferred adjudication program with probation. Should you fail this program, you would go back to trial. If you don't want to do the probation, you can ask to go back to trial.
Usually after you make a plea and the judge reaches a final decision, that is the end of the case. You can appeal the decision if you had ineffective assistance of counsel, or if your plea was not knowingly and intentionally given. It could be that you were confused by the proceedings in which case the judge may allow you to reopen your case. It is within the judge's discretion to do so, but typically the judge will not wish to.
When you gave your plea, someone was supposed to inform you what it means to give a particular plea. They should have asked you some simple questions such as:
Do you understand the nature of the charges being brought against you?
Is it true that you wish to enter a plea at this time?
Do you realize that you are giving up your right to a trial, at said trial you have a presumption of innocence and the prosecution has the burden of proving every element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt? Do you understand that the prosecution must present evidence and or produce witnesses that would testify against you, that you have the right to cross examine those witnesses, and you can take the stand in your own defense, although you are not required to do so?
Do you read and understand the english language?
Are you under the influence of any drugs, alcohol, or medication that may affect your ability to make an effective waiver of rights?
Has anyone promised you or threatened you in any way in exchange for your waiver besides those promises made to you in a plea bargain?
Do you understand that upon entering a plea of no contest that you will have limited appellate rights?
If you are represented by an attorney, are you satisfied with the service that your attorney has provided to you?
Your state may have more or fewer questions required for this proffer.
After you have answered these questions, the prosecution should make a motion for the judge to find that you have made a knowing and intelligent waiver of rights, accept your plea, and take the recommended plea bargain. Should it be granted, usually the prosecution will read the allegations into the record for appellate purposes. Should these allegations not make out an offense (you were arrested for assault for wearing horrible looking clothing), you can appeal the judgment to a higher court, but at this point it is incredibly rare that your appeal would be granted or the that the judge would reopen the case. If the judge didn't accept a valid plea, it may be grounds to reopen the case. Depending on how long ago you made the plea, it may be easier sooner than later.

Child Custody Question..Need Advice From Experienced People?
My Children Are 6, 10, 12, 14 And 15. Their Father Moved Out In January And Right Now Our Custody Agreement Is Every Other Weekend. Since The Move Out He Has A &Quot;New&Quot; Family Now. A Woman And Her 3 Daughters. My Children No Longer Want To Be A Part Of Their Fathers Life Much To My Discouragement Because Of His Actions. I Dont Want It To Come To This But Legally Do I Stand A Chance If I Went For Full Custody With No Visitation Since They Do Not Want To Go? They Have Even Said They Would Go To Their Grandmothers (His Mom) Every Other Weekend As Long As She Was The One Taking Care Of Them And He Could Just Visit With Them But They Do Not Want To Be A Part Of This Woman And Her Childrens Life. I Could Go On Forever Explaining Why But Dont Want To Bore You With The Details. They Have Reason To Feel This Way And I Have Tried So Hard To Explain To Him Their Feelings But He Does Not Listen To What I Say And I Know Him After 17 Years Of Marriage To Know He Is Doing These Things Because He Thinks They Are Hurting Me And Does Not Realize He Is Hurting His Kids And Losing Them. I Dont Want Them To Feel Rejection From Him Anymore. He Has Them 5 Days A Month And I Have Them For 25. They Asked To See Him More And He Said, &Quot; I Need Time To Myself.&Quot; Yet When He Is With Them..He Says, &Quot; Daddy Wishes He Could See You More But It Is Just Not Possible.&Quot; He Has Been Offered Them 4 Weekends A Month And Chooses Not To. What Do I Do? Do I Make Them Go There?
I have a similar situation. He is being manipulative. Don't force the kids to go, but you should encourage them to go. That way he can never say you kept them from him. Never say anything unkind about him where the children can hear. They will figure it out. He will probably tell other people you won't let him see the kids. He may even tell them that. He really doesn't care about the kids. He wants to hurt you. The kids are his vehicle to carry that out. I know it is painful to see your children hurt. As hard as this may be, don't get angry with him. Anger gives him power. I still struggle with that. I also struggle with forgiveness, but you have time for that. He is a schmuck, and consider yourself lucky that he walked away to make someone else miserable.
Keep a journal, too. Write down the date and when he picked them up. If you asked him to take them, write it down. When he forgets to pick them up, write it down. On Father's Day or his birthday, write it down. Just a quick note, but write everything down. You will need it later on. Hang in there!
This May Vary From State To State, So If It Does, This Is In The State Of Pennsylvania.
Here'S The Situation. I Have A Friend Who Has Been Seperated For 5 Years. He Filed For A Divorce, But His Wife Refuses To Sign The Papers. He Has A New Girlfriend That He Has Been With For 3 Years, And He Wants To Marry Her, But He Can'T Because He Can'T Get His Divorce Finalized.
Is There Any Way Around This? If His Wife Keeps Refusing To Sign The Papers, Is There Some Type Of Law Or Statute That Says The Divorce Will Automatically Be Final After X Amount Of Time??
Ok..not up on Pennsylvania laws, and yes they do vary from state to state, but not that much.
So your friend filed a divorce petition? Was it served on the Wife? If so, did she file a response within the time frame allowed? If she didn't then he must simply note her in default and file a request for divorce. NOW that being said, if there are children or assets to be dealt with, there may have to be a formal hearing with respect to those matters...it is possible, however, to sever the divorce itself from Marital Property and child support and custody issues..which basically means that those matters are still open for argument at a later date, but your friend can get divorced and remarried.
Any Atlanta Ga Litigation Attorneys Out There? Please Help.?
My Apartment Has Been Totally Flooded. Everything I Own Was Destroyed Due To Extensive Water Damage. I Do Not Have Renters Insurance However This All Occured To No Fault Of My Own. Contractors Were Doing Some Type Of Fiber Optic/Telecommunication Project In My Building And Hit A Main Water Line. Water Poured From My Wall Sockets,Light Fixtures,Ceilings,And Even My Patio. We Were Told To Leave By The Fire Department Because The Ceilings Could Have Caved In. Everything I Own Is In That Apartment. The Contractors Company Paid To Put Us In A Hotel For The Night...But Then What? The Apartment Community Is Going To Give Us Another Apartment But They Are Not Sure When It Will Become Available. What Do We Do About Clothing? Furniture? Food? All Of My Sentimental Items Are Destroyed. We Have Nothing. I Know For A Fact That The Contractors Are Have Liablity Insurance. What Would Be The Next Course Of Action. Please Help.
Whoa. Slow down. Litigation is a forcible action, and it's much too early to go there.
First, call the Red Cross. They will help you get stuff to make it for the time being. Next, contact the contractor company's office and ask if they are planning to send out an adjuster or if you should just submit a list of your property you lost and a claim for damages.
Also, get the apartment manager to commit to which apartment you will have, and when that apartment will be ready to move into.
You'll make a lot more progress by working with these other people to solve the problem than you will by trying to sue them from the get-go.
By the way, buy a renter's policy next time. It's not expensive, and would solve all of your problems right now instead of the days of stuff you have to do on your own.
What Is Civil Law? Criminal Law? What Are The Differences?
Criminal law relates to violations of criminal statutes--i.e., crimes. It relates to those statutes dealing with crimes against the public and members of the public, with penalties and all the procedures connected with charging, trying, sentencing and imprisoning defendants convicted of crimes.
Civil law is that part of the law that encompasses business, contracts, estates, domestic (family) relations, accidents, negligence and everything related to legal issues, statutes and lawsuits, that is not criminal law. In a few areas civil and criminal law may overlap or coincide. For example, a person may be liable under a civil lawsuit for negligently killing a pedestrian with his auto by running over the person and be charged with the crime of vehicular homicide due to his/her reckless driving. Assault may bring about arrest by the police under criminal law and a lawsuit by the party attacked under civil law. 2) referring to one's basic rights guaranteed under the Constitution (and the interpretations and statutes intended to implement the enforcement of those rights) such as voting, equitable taxation, freedom of speech, press, religion and assembly. Generally these are referred to as "civil rights," which have required constant diligence and struggle to ensure and expand, as in the Civil Rights movement between 1950 and 1980. Violation of one's civil rights may be a crime under federal and/or state statutes. Civil rights include civil liberties. Civil liberties emphasize protection from infringement upon basic freedoms, while statutory rights are based on laws passed by Congress or state legislatures.
