What Do Lawyers Cost?
I Am A Small Business Owner And It Seems It Would Be Impossible To Be Insured For Everything.
I Fear Getting Sued For Something Minor And Being Held Responsible For Attorney Fees.
Can You Tell Me What Lawyers Charge Say For A Slip And Fall Or Something Else That A Small Business May Be Sued For? I Do Not Fear The Damages I Fear The Lawyers Fees. I Would Like To Know More About This So I Can Have A Better Understanding Of The Threats I Face.
I Live In Ma Which Is Not Business Friendly And If I Got The Wrong Judge I Suspect I Could Lose My Shirt.
I Have Not Been Sued For Anything Before However I Do Fear This.
Thank You !
Slip and fall should be covered under your premises liability insurance. In that case the insurance company hires and pays for the lawyer.
On the other hand, if you are sued for something like breach of contract the lawyer fees would be on you. Good lawyers in big cities will run $200-$350/hr and up.
Don't let the fear of legal fees keep you from running your business. The chances of getting sued are small. I have practiced law for 35 years and have never seen a small business owner go broke paying his lawyer.
Can A Family Hire An Attorney To Locate Their Deceased Family Will?
Do Estate Planning Lawyers Often This Kind Of Service? The State Is Nj And The Family Is Guessing Used A Lawyer Located In The County Where He Resided.
How do you know there is one? Check with a lawyer to see what happens without a will. Most states have laws which automatically set who inherits without a will. Otherwise, hire a PI. A lawyer will just do that and add his own fee on top of it.

Ugh, I'm going through a custody battle with my son's father. He skips visits, makes other plans during scheduled visits, then claims he's being kept from his child. He also talks to me in a very inappropriate way.
My advice to you is first of all, if you don't have an attorney, get one, find a way to get one! Document everything, every little thing, and record his voice mails and phone calls. Save emails and text messages, type up your texts as a back up. Detach yourself emotionally, you two are business partners and that's it. Try to shift your communication to email, it's easier to keep your emotion out of it, easier than recording, and it serves as written documentation for court.
I would suggest you draft a letter to him and mail it certified mail. Let him know in the letter that you want your child to have him in their life. That you have tried to work with him on visits but that there have been so many issues, proceed to list those (non-emotional, just matter of fact). Tell him you understand his work schedule fluctuates, and that you have a busy schedule as well along with trying to work around the child's naps etc, and that it is important that there be a schedule for the visits. Tell him you are open to suggestions, but that for the time being you are offering Sundays at 2pm for 2 hours (for example), until another agreement can be reached, or until the case goes to court. You need to set some clear boundaries with him. Let him know that his angry outbursts continue to be an issue and that this needs to stop because you two are going to be dealing with each other for many years to come and that you feel it would be best for your child if you two can be civil and respectful to each other.
You also need to do a little letting go here. Let him seek you out if he wants to know how the child is doing, unless there is an emergency of course. He needs to be acting like a parent if he claims he wants to parent this child. Don't forget to document if he isn't asking about the child or to see them. Keep convos with him only about the child and visits. Don't let him bully you. Let him know in the letter that if he continues to talk to you that way that you will have to insist all communication will be via email. Also, keep in mind if he is showing that he is unwilling to cooperate and you are trying to work with him, the mediator will see this and this will help you in court.
ETA: the reason I suggested the certified letter is because this is something my attorney had me do when my son's father claimed he wanted more time for visits. He told my to let my son's father know that of course I wanted him in my child's life and that I'm concerned because of all of the problems with the visits he has already had available to him. He had me list out all of the visits he's missed, cut short, etc. He also had me recite other problems like dad doesn't take care of our son when he visits (his visits are in my home), doesn't know how to deal with his serious allergies, etc. My attorney said this is great evidence for court. In your case you could add that the child doesn't know him very well and how important you feel it is for the child to get to know him better in an environment that he/she feels comfortable and safe before the away visits begin, that you really want this to be a painless transition for the child and you hope he can understand and work with you on this for the child's sake. You need to remember that until this goes to court you do have a right to lay some ground rules here, and this is why documenting is so important because these losers will go into court and cry that they have been denied access to the child even when they had a visit scheduled and decided something else was more important. Good luck!
Ok So I Need Some Advice. Its A Complicated Situation So I Am Sorry If It Takes A While To Explain, There Are A Lot Of Details.
Recently My Apartments Mailboxes Have Been Getting Broken Into. Apparently They Gave Out The Master Key To A Resident Who Had Lost Their Own Key And That Resident Kept The Master Key And Has Been Stealing Peoples Mail.
The Apartment Managers And Owner Were Ordered By The Post Office To Have All The Mail Held And The Post Office Center. No One Told Any Of The Residents. There Were No Signs, No Email, No Phone Call, Nothing. I Finally Desided To Go And Ask The Manager If They Were Holding My Mail For Some Reason And They Said &Quot;Oh Ya A Bunch Of Mail Was Stolen So Its Been Held For About A Month And The Post Office.&Quot;
I Have An Insurance Card That Comes Once A Month And Was Not Able To Obtain It Since I Did Not Know My Mail Was Being Held. I Thought It Just Hadnt Come Yet. Anyways I Had To Go To The Doctor Because I Seriously Injured My Ankle. Since I Didnt Have My Insurance Card I Had To Go To A Crappy Hospital And Pay Out Of Pocket For The Time Being. I Was Also Told That I Need To Go To Physical Therapy Three Times A Week For Four Months Starting Immediately.
After Hearing That I Desided I Need To Go And Check At The Post Office To Get My Insurance Card. The Post Office Said I Had No Mail. My Mail Had Been Held For Almost A Month And A Half And I Had No Mail? I Was Sent Birthday Money And My Insurance Card And School And Legal Documents. The Post Office Said Someone Must Have Stolen Them When The Mail Was Still At The Apartments.
I Now Have To Wait A Week To Get My Insurance Card So I Can Start Physical Therapy.
Ok So Here Is My Question: If My Ankle Gets Worse And Or Had Permanent Damage, Can The Apartment Complex Be Held Responsible Since It Is There Fault I Could Not Get My Insurance Card In Time And It Was There Fault The Mail Was Stolen?
. Oh And They Knew Mail Was Stolen And Did Not Report It To The Residents.
How about calling a few lawyers who offer a free consultation and ask them what they think of the situation. You definitely have a right to get your mail and anyone who tampers with it (such as the theif(ves) who broke into the mailbox) has committed a federal offense. Hoping that you get some resolve.
Social Security Disability Attorneys, Are They Frauds ?
I Hired A Social Security Disability Attorney In August 2009. They Said They Would Open Up My Claim And See It Through To The End. I Have Multiple Things Wrong With Me That I'M Not Going To Discuss, However, I Believe That I Have A Fair Chance Of Getting Approved, Based On My Medical History And Work History. Now, The Attorney That I Hired Forgot To Sign Me Up In August And I Called Them And They Apologized And Filled Out The Paperwork. I Talked To The Social Security Administration And The Attorneys Didn'T Even Send Them A Medical File. I Called The Attorney And They Confirmed That They Don'T Have A Medical File For Me And They Didn'T Send For My Medical Records. I Would Like To Fire These Idiots For Breach Of Contract ( They Are Not Aggressively Pursuing The Claim And They Have Already Made Two Horrific Mistakes ). Is It Possible For Me To Terminate Them Without Oweing Them Anything ? Can They Still Be Entitled To Compensation Should I Get Approved ? Whats Your Input On This Question ? Thanks For Answering.
Disability attorneys do not do ANYTHING for you on your initial claim or your first appeal. If you get denied a second time and appeal again the case goes to an actual hearing before a judge. At this level an attorney can be beneficial (still not required though). An attorney never collects up your medical records. Social security does this at no cost to you. Social Security is required to provide a copy of your file to your attorney at their request. Your initial claim and first appeal are processed solely by social security. There is nothing for a lawyer to do. Lawyers taking a claim at this level are just hoping that you WILL be denied so that the case gets to the hearing level. By then a couple of years has gone by, so if your condition has worsened, and a judge says OK you are now disabled, the lawyer gets his percentage of a BIG backpay check.
How Do Legal Tender Laws Work?
Let'S For The Sake Of Argument, Omit Coins Out Of The Discussion.
We Can Agree All Paper Bills Are &Quot;Legal Tender&Quot; Under Us Law. Currently, All Businesses Are Allowed To Accept Alternative Forms Of Payment In Exchange For Goods And Services, As Long As They Are Non-Debt Payment.
Ok, Let'S Say Somebody Owes Me $100,000. He Wanted To Trouble Me, So He Excercises His Rights And Handles Me 100,000 One Dollar Bills. The Part Of Carrying The Weight Is Easy, The Cost Of Time To Count Them Is Not.
Can I As A Creditor, Demand He Count The Bills In Front Of Me To Prove He Has Indeed Presented 100,000 One Dollar Bills, As An Assurance Before Accepting It? After All, It'S Not That I Don'T Accept It, It'S That I Cannot Trust He Has Given Me The Full Amount In Non-Counterfeit Bills, So I Need Him To Show It To Me Before I Can Write Him A Receipt Or Let Him Get On His Way.
Is That Fair And Legal Within Legal Tender Laws?
The legal tender law just says that the Federal Reserve Bank cannot question the value of the bills you present, not that you have to accept them as payment from anybody. Similarly, a credit card or personal checks are legal tender but you are not required by law to accept them for payment.
However, in your scenario of an existing debt, once the "tender" has been made (delivering 1,000 stacks of dollar bills), he could argue that the debt is discharged. You, of course, can specify the acceptable forms of payment BEFORE the debt is incurred, or reserve the right to reject unacceptable forms, and having failed to do so, you have accepted the risk of a debtor delivering any form of legal tender. You would have the option to reject the payment if it were, for example, $100,000 worth of diamonds.
If you go into a restaurant with an American Express logo on the door, have a meal, then they reject your offer to pay with AMEX ("We only take cash"), you have the argument that the debt is discharged when you have offered legal tender as within their advertised forms of acceptable payment. They may see it differently.
