What Makes A Good Criminal Lawyer?
You'Ll Always See Those Fancy $500 - $1000 Per Hour Lawyers On Movies Or The News Representing The Mafia Or Stars, What Does It Take To Be Like That? What Do They Have That The Average Lawyer Does Not? Do They Establish A Specific Style? If So, How Do They Do This? Everything From The Cloths To The Voice. What Is It About These Guys?
Many of the top criminal defense attorneys that I know of got their start in the law profession by working as a prosecutor. The years that they spend as a prosecutor allows them the chance to learn how prosecutors build their cases against the criminals. When they switch over to being a defense attorney, they take that knowledge with them and it helps them to plan what kind of case the prosecution is going to build and how to defend against that kind of case.
Top defense attorneys aren't necessarily smarter than your average attorney, but they are usually much more aggressive. And they usually adopt an image that says "power" by wearing expensive suits and watches, and using the body language of someone who is an "alpha" leader. This tends to give clients confidence that the lawyer knows what he is doing.
Question Re Real Estate Law/Renter's Rights
I Signed A 12 Month Lease Beginning 4/1/07. The Lease Terminated, But W/Out Any Oral Agreement Or Anything, I Continued To Send Rent Checks And Continued To Live In The Apt. A 1Br In Nyc.
On May 1, 2008, I Was Admitted To Hospital, And Stayed Through 6/28/08. On June 14, 2008, Landlord Was Notfied Via Family Member That I Would Be Vacating. I Paid Full June Rent. The Landlord Was Not Able To Show The Apartment B/C She Was Not Able To Reach Me To Ask Permission. However, While She Tried To Contact Me At Work, And Via Other Ways, She Did Not Try My Cell Phone For Some Amazing Unkown Reason.
There Were Other Damages, Whcih I'm Fine W/The Associated Deductions. She Ended Up Saying She Lost A Month B/C She Couldn't Show The Apt And Didn't Get The Keys Until 7/2/08. I Said She Should Have Her Own Keys. She's The Landlord After All!! I Would've Given Permission To Show The Place Of Course.
So, W/No Contract, Was I Liable For That Last Month's Rent? (Full July?). She's Holding Me Accountable, Even Though I Left 7/15/08. Her Argment Is That I Couldn't Be Reached To Give Permission. To Me, This Is Bs, Since She Didn't Even Call My Cell Phone.
She Also Included Medical Costs Associated W/Cleaning Lady's Injury Gotten In My Apt After Keys Returned. Is That Crazy Or What?
you had a month tom month lease. My understanding (a related issue came up for me this year) is that whether or not you owe full months or can give 30 days notice at any time is entirely jurisdiction related and depends on local laws, and perhaps on what the lease says on the topic if anything.
my own attorney and my prior landlord disagreed on the issue, it is still unresolved here in California for me.
In any case, if you are out, and you didn't pay from 7/15 to 7/31 and you have no security deposit concerns, then don't worry about it much.
Landlord is probably bluffing - she will not sue you. you owe her nothing about any injuries. stop taking her calls and she will go away.
I am sure laws are very pro-tenant in NYC - surely there are agencies or mediation boards that you can call up and get solid comforting advice on.
But basically, next time she calls tell her she must only correspond with you in writing and I am sure you won't hear from her again.
I Am Looking To Find A La Firm In The Uk. Martins Blaney Law Firm?
I do not believe that any such firm exists. A Lexis search yields no results. Furthermore, most law firms, in both Britain and the US, do not include "law firm" as part of their title. It's generally a string of parter's names, possibly followed by a corporate identifier like PC or LLC.
Drinking And Driving ?
I Drove Today And I Felt Sobor But I Feel Soooo Guilty And I Think That God Is Going To Punish Me! I Just Need Help Not Think That..
God is not the one you need to worry about he will let you make your own choices, but you also must live with the consequences of your actions.
After I finally went to court after 6-months of court ordered rehab. My D.U.I. ended up costing my over $50,000.00 by the time I added up my lost time at work, lawyers fees, court cost and fines, D.U.I. school and classes and of course the ignition interlock device I had for 8-months.
Don't drink and drive. It's not worth it believe me.
Personal Injury Lawsuit?
I Was In A Grocery Store Yesterday And Slipped And Fell On Some Liquid On The Floor And Took A Pretty Hard Fall On My Knee. I Got Up And Walked Away Thinking That I Was Fine, But Soon After I Got Home I Had A Lot Of Pain And Returned To The Store To Speak With The Manager. He Spoke With His Higher Up Manager And Confirmed That Sprite Was Spilled And Not Cleaned Up. There Was Also No Caution Sign. I Can Walk On My Leg But With A Limp And Only For Short Periods Of Time On Flat Ground. Going Up Stairs Is Nearly Impossible And Walking For A Long Time Makes The Pain So Much Worse. I'M Going To Get X-Rays Today, But If This Injury Were To Chronically Effect My Ability To Work, Is There Some Kind Of Money That I'M Entitled To For Loss Of Wages And Suffering? I Have A Job Where A Large Portion Of My Income Relies On Tips And With This Injury I Will Be Able To Make Absolutely No Tips. Any Help Or Advice Would Be Greatly Appreciated!!
Yes, you should be covered by the store's insurance coverage, however grocery stores tend to fight these lawsuits quite vigorously because they happen all the time in stores and there's a good amount of fraud in the slip and fall injury market. Remarkably, the worst culprit in a grocery store is the harmless grape. People step on them and they often cause a fall in the produce department.
If the store did not state they would accept a claim from you (typically they will ONLY cover your medical bills...not lost time from work or wages), then I would suggest you speak to an injury attorney to find out what they can do about it.
Most attorneys will allow you to have a first consultation for free, so no worries there and they often take such cases on contingency, so you shouldn't be shelling out anything unless your case wins versus the store.
If so, then the attorney typically takes 30%, 40% or 45% of the settlement, depending upon whether the case is settled before trial, during the trial, or as a result of a judgment by the court respectively.
What Does The District Attorney Of Social Services Do?
I'Ve Never Had A Da Of Social Services At My Door. I Recently Filed For Aid From Social Service Last Week. I'Ve Been On Aid Many Years Ago And It Was Smooth Getting On And I Got A Job And Got Off. The Da Was Knocking At My Door At 8:00 Am This Morning, My Kids Were Sleeping And I Was Unshowered And In My Pajamas. He Told Me He Was At My House Yesterday Same Time, But I Wasn'T There (Taking My Kids To School). I Told Him Through The Screen, &Quot;Can We Reschedule This? My Kids Are Asleep And I Haven'T Had A Chance To Shower And Put Clothes On. He Told Me This, &Quot;Either You Let Me Through This Door Or You Will Have To Reapply.&Quot; He Said He Is On Limited Time Also It Was This Instant Or Else. So I Told Him I Can Reschedule Or Come Back Later. He Then Left And Rudely Said, &Quot;Good Luck!&Quot; Why Was He Being So Mean And Demanding To Come In My House At 8Am? I Don'T Have An Issue With Letting Social Service In. .I'Ve Let Them In Before And No Problems. I'M Not Doing Any Fraud Or Anything. I Have An Active Child Support Case With The D.A.. .Why Would I Be Investigated? I Don'T Have A History Of Anything Or Nothing For Him To Question Me On.
There is no position with the title "District Attorney of Social Services." There is a district attorney, and there is a director of social services. Their paths cross often on official business.
It's impossible to say why this person was at your door at 8:00 AM, but if you have an active child support case with the DA, they must need to discuss it with you. Early or not, you probably should have allowed him to come in.
