What Are Probate Lawyers Called In France?
I Am Trying To Find Out What Would Be The French Term For What Americans Call Probate Lawyers. They Would Deal With Wills, Properties After Death, Things Of That Nature.
In France probate is usually handled by Notaries (which are very different from notaries in the US and sometimes attorneys). If the deceased names and Executor (as we say in the US then it can be a lay person who will handle the distribution of property, cash and items to the deceased's relatives.
France has a very different legal system from the US. In France you cannot leave your estate to anyone other than your direct descendants and they all get portions by law according to their closeness to you in descend-ency. So, you could not leave your estate to a friend or you dog or cat, in France.
When my French Mother-in-law passes her estate will be split between my husband and his brother with a one third portion for their deceased sister going to her two children.
Can I Sue Abbott Laboratories For Birth Defects From Depakote?
Nearly 10 Years Ago I Was Prescribed Depakote To Treat A Bipolar Condition And My Doctor Told Me That It Was Ok To Continue To Take While I Was Pregnant. He Said The Risks Of Withdrawl If I Stopped Taking The Drug Would Be Worse Than The Side Effects Of Taking It. My Daughter Was Born With A Hole In Her Heart And Has Had Breathing Issues All Of Her Life. Now I Am Reading Lots Of Information About How Depakote Can Cause Birth Defects. Can I Sue Abbott Laboratories Or Is This A Malpractice Kind Of Suit For A Doctor? I Cannot Believe That No One Would Tell People About The Side Effects Of Taking This Drug.
Sometimes it is hard to prove a case, but if you believe that it was the fault of Depakote that your daughter had these birth defects, then you should consult a lawyer who has experience in handling these type of drug cases. There have been some class action lawsuits filed in Illinois over Depakote, so it seems like people do have some ground to stand on against the drug manufacturer.
Drug companies have lots of lawyers behind them, so you have to find an attorney that is really high powered who will be able to fight such a big company.
Here is a link about some of the current Depakote class action lawsuits:

How Common Is It For Immigration Lawyers To Exchance Services For Sex?
A Guy I Know Is An Immigration Attorney In His Mid-30'S, Working Mainly With Mexican And Chinese Clients, And It'S Pretty Well-Known That He Trades Fees For Sex With Some Of The Younger Women In His Clientele Base.
Technically This Is An Ethical Violation, But It Seems To Be Relatively Common. Is It More Common In Immigration Law Than In Other Areas Of Law, Or Do Lawyers In Other Fields Commonly Exchange Sex For Services?
This is more than a technical ethical violation. It's flat out wrong and illegal. Forcing someone who's desperate in to prostitution (trading sex for money or goods etc) is incredibly shady.

Help Me With My Dad's Worksman's Comp/Possible Employer Negligence Issue. Do We Need An Attorney? Georgia?
My Father Has Worked For This Furniture Company For The Past ~30 Years. He Does Not Have A Driver's License And The Company Has Said He Has Had Problems Since His Vietnam Experience With "Nerves". He Works In The Furniture Warehouse. His Job Involves Lifting Furniture Etc. He Was Asked To Drive A Tugger(Similar To A Forklift In Size.) To Move Furniture Around The Warehouse.
This Past April He Was In An Accident In The Tugger Where He Was Driving It And It Came Off The Loading Dock Of The Warehouse. I Don't Believe He Should Have Been On The Vehicle Anyway With No License Or Training. I'm Not Exactly Sure How The Vehicle Came Off The Side Of The Warehouse Dock, If It Popped Out Of Gear, Or If He Thought It Was In Reverse Or Whatever.
He Has Been On Workmans Comp Since April And Will Likely Require Knee Surgery. He Had A Pretty Bad Concussion, But No Breaks. Just Generally Beat Up And A Huge Laceration On His Head. The Fall Was Roughly 5 Feet.
I Know That In General Workman's Comp Only Covers Medical Bills And Weeks Pay Is Standard?? For Permanent Disability. Was This Negligence To Expect Him To Drive This Vehicle, For Which He Was Obviously Not Qualified? If So Should We Get An Attorney For This Situation?
Please Help Me In This Situation As I'm A Little Lost.
In most states, workers' compensation is the EXCLUSIVE remedy for a worker who is injured on the job. That means that the injured worker cannot sue his employer for negligence, etc. in a separate action, but must go through the workers' compensation procedure.
Information about exclusive remedy (this has to deal with workplace violence but the premise is the same) in Georgia can be found here:
More here (from an attorney's website):
From the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation:
Basically, you want to find an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation. Contact your local county bar association for a referral.
One instance where the exclusive remedy of workers' compensation is not applicable is if the employer doesn't have the coverage (hasn't paid for it and/or is not somehow exempt from it). You can check if the employer is covered here:
Has your father made a claim? Here's the form:
If you tell us what county you are in, I can probably locate the local bar association.

Ontario Law Concerning Borrowed Bicycle Injuries?
I Have A Dilemma.
My Younger Brother Is Currently In The Process Of Buying A Used Bike From One Of His Friends.
My Brother, After Getting The Bike, Found Out That It Had A Very Crappy Chain That Was On Its Way Out.
Last Night, My Roommate Asked My Brother If He Could Borrow My Brother'S Bicycle.
While Riding The Bicycle, The Chain Broke And My Roommate Was Almost Injured Because Of It.
My Younger Brother Now Claims That My Roommate Has To Buy A New Bike Chain, Because Even Though My Brother Knew The Bike Chain Was Close To Breaking, It Didn'T Break Until My Roommate Was Using It, Regardless Of Whether He Could Have Been Hurt Or Not.
Who Here Is Responsible?
What? Why would anybody borrow an injury? Read your question.
How could your brother know the chain was "about" to break? I have never been able to tell that.
"Almost" injured? What does that mean? I was almost struck by a Meteor last night. It passed within 100,000,000 miles of me!
If he knew it was "about" to break he should not expect anybody else to fix it.
