3 Methods To Know You've Picked The Right Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to endure the legal court system, particularly if you lack confidence within your legal team. Here are three important ways to recognize that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Kind Of Case Legislation is often tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you need an attorney, look for person who relates to the challenge you're facing. Even if a relative or friend recommends you make use of a company they know, when they don't use a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. Once your attorney is undoubtedly an expert, specifically in the hassle you're facing, you already know you've hired the correct one. 2. The Lawyer Includes A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it can be challenging to win an instance, specifically if the team helping you has virtually no experience. Try to find practices that have won numerous cases that relate to yours. Although this is no guarantee that you case will probably be won, it will give you a much better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In case the attorney you've chosen takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer your inquiries, you've probably hired the best one. No matter how busy they are or how small your concerns seem using their perspective, it's critical that they answer you inside a caring and timely manner. From the aim of view of an ordinary citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases could be pretty scary you require updates and also to feel as if you're section of the solution. Some attorneys are merely considerably better to your case than others. Be sure you've hired the best team for your circumstances, to actually can placed the matter behind you as soon as possible. Faith inside your legal representative is the first task to winning any case.

Michigan Courts (Family Law) Rights Violated?
Dealing With Child Support Issues In Mi.
My Husband Has A Son.
The Little Guys Mother Submitted A Request For Additional Child Support Last Year. My Husbands Income Was Not Reported Correctly So He Filed An Appeal With The Help Of A Lawyer. The Lawyer Filed The Appeal In May. We Recently Received The Courts Decision. We Don't Agree With The Amount Of Child Care He Is Ordered To Pay (The Little Guys Mom Is A Liar And Much More). The Court Papers Stated That We Had 7 Days To Appeal The Decision. Called The Lawyer Every Day And Received No Response From Him. Other Members Of His Office Stated That He Was Not In The Office And To Leave A Message. We Left Message After Message And Received No Response. Wednesday Was The Deadline To File An Appeal. With No Response From The Lawyer, My Husband Went To The Court House And Filed The Appeal Papers On His Own (You Don't Need A Lawyer For That).
A Clerk Stamped The Paper Work And Accepted It. Another Clerk That Was Nearby Took The Paper Work And Looked It Over. She Then Stated That They Would Not Accept My Husbands Appeal. Why? The Clerk Simply Stated That They Would Not Accept It (It Was Already Stamped By A Different Clerk).
We Received Absolutely No Help From The Lawyer (He Was Paid For His Services). I Had No Idea That A Clerk Had The Right To Deny Paper Work. We Have Tried To Do Right But The System Seems To Simply Make Up Rules As They Go.
My Husband Has Always Paid Support And More. We Like To Spend Time With The Little Guy But His Mother Is A Crazy Liar And Wont Allow My Husband To See His Son.
In Allegan County Michigan, Fathers Are Treated Like Dirt.
I Feel Like My Husbands Rights Were Violated.
Are The Actions Of The Lawyer And Clerk Legal?
Serious Answers Only, Please.
If You Don't Have Anything Decent To Say Don't Say Anything At All. Thanks!
The actions of the clerk are likely legal. There are requirements as to the contents of any appeal and really you need to be a lawyer or have lots of experience dealing with them to meet all the requirements. Without knowing more about why the clerk rejected it, it's really impossible to say.
The lawyer did not violate any laws per se, but you could likely sue him for malpractice. Failing to file a timely appeal is a serious breach of his contract with you and a serious breach of legal ethics. I would speak to his office about the situation - the office manager or head partner if there is one - and let them know that you're completely unhappy with your representation. If they do nothing to compensate you, contact another firm to look over possible malpractice claims.
Protecting A Future Business Name And Logo?
I Want To Open A Bakery A Few Years From Now, I Still Have A Lot Of Planning And Saving To Do. But I Already Have A Name Chosen For My Business. I Have A Blog That Uses The Name Of My Business As The Title And The Logo I Will Be Using And I Was Wondering What I Have To Do To Protect Those?
Can I Trademark Them Even Thought I Won'T Be Opening A Business For A Few Years?
Business trademarks are a costly process. I don't think that is what you need. To protect a business name, you register that name with the Secretary of State. That protects the name within that state only. It also lets you know if the name is available. If not, you need to find another name. Also, you should consider setting up a corporation with the business name. That is another way of securing it. Again, that is filed with the Secretary of State. You can have an inactive corporate shell until you need it. Also, the corporate name is only protected within the state of incorporation. If you plan to do business in other states, you will need to register your business name with those states in order to protect it there.
As for the blog, you can buy that domain name. There are a lot of internet companies that assist you in securing a domain name. The cost can be as little as $20.
As for the logo, that is tougher. If you really want to protect it, you need to go through the business trademark registration process. You most likely will need the assistance of a business lawyer to get the logo trademarked. I suppose you are aware that business lawyers seldom work cheap.
Also, I see someone suggested legalzoom. I have mixed thoughta about that. Sure it is a cheap way to do legal documents. The problem is you do not know exactly what you need to have done. You do not know exactly what you need to put into those documents. So, what you generate there may not be all that beneficial. I have had to straighten out more than one mess where people tried to do there own legal documents on-line. I probably could have done them correctly in the beginning for less than I had to charge them to clean up the mess they made trying to do it themselves. Much of what a start up business owner pays her/his business lawyer for is not the documents, it is for the advice.
My Father Has A Piece Of Property And He Is Having A Dispute About It With A Famous Civil Rights Lawyer?
The Property Was Never Marked Correctly By The City And Now The Little Piece Is Being Taken By The Civil Rights Lawyer And Claims It Is His. The Civil Lawyer Wants To Build A Big Building Near Us By Our Home And He Needs The Piece That My Father Has A Partial Claim There. My Father Would Like To Fight This Lawyer But We Are Not Sure What Can Be Done. Any Suggestions
The Lawyer Is Very Famous And Has Won Claims Against The City For Jail Clients That Were Being Mistreated In This City. Any Advice Of Suggestions Would Help?
When you have a legal dispute with a lawyer, you need another lawyer. I know it's hard to believe, but in commercial & property litigation, a lawyer's reputation for representing criminal clients isn't going to help him.
Is A Court-Appointed Lawyer Good Or Bad?
Ok, So My Sister Is Being Charged With A Felony(Wounding Charge) From A Domestic Dispute Against Her Bf...And Currently She Is Sitting In Jail..We'Re Trying To Work Out Getting Her A Bond Until Her Actual Prelim. Hearing In A Month....But The Courts Have Given Her A Lawyer. Right Now, We(Our Family) Don'T Have The Money To Hire A Private Lawyer...Mostly B/C My Parents Had To Hire A Family Lawyer A Week Ago, To Try To Get Custody Of My Sister'S Child...This Pending Charge Against My Sister Was Definitely In Self-Defense, And We Have Numerous Witnesses That Can Testify On Her Behalf Of What Her Bf Has Done To Her For The Past Year...
Now We'Re Worried About How Well This Court-Appointed Lawyer Is Going To Iron Out All The Intricate Details That Are Needed To Defend My Sister, And If He'Ll Spend The X-Tra Time To Make A Really Good Case With The Info We'Re Giving Him...Ive Heard That If A Person Uses These Types Of Lawyers, They Almost Always Get A Higher Sentence B/C They Don'T Do A Good Job...Does Anyone Have Any Input? Have You Had Success With Them Or Complete Disasters?
And If Anyone Knows This...What'S The Difference B/T Court-Appointed Lawyers And Public Defenders? I Was Trying To Do Some Google Searching And Some Sites Say They Are The Same, And Others Say, They Are Different??
It depends on the jurisdiction as to whether or not a court appointed lawyer is the same as a public defender. If the county has enough public defenders, then the court appointed lawyer will almost always be a public defender. If the county does not have enough public defenders, the judge can select a criminal attorney off of a list and assign that attorney to a case.
There are good and bad public defenders. And there are good and bad criminal defense attorneys. I will tell you that when I did my internship (at a county prosecutor's office), I learned that a significant number of the area defense attorneys went into private practice after they were not able to get hired as public defenders. I also saw that some of the prosecutors absolutely detested some of the private criminal defense attorneys and would not offer their clients anything resembling a good plea agreement. The criminal defense attorney got paid regardless of the outcome, so the only person who really suffered was the client.
Your sister's best bet is almost certainly going to be to stick with the court appointed lawyer. Your family will not be able to afford the caliber of criminal defense attorney you would want, and you would probably throw your money away on a minimally competent attorney who is working on a ton of other cases with little or no help. At least a public defender will have an entire office to support him/her.
(And the public defenders who are assigned to the felony cases are the ones with more experience. You won't be getting someone right out of law school.)
Can Court Awarded Personal Injuries.Tax Free. Lifetime Annuity Be Touch By Creditors?
Depends on who the creditors are. If they are medical providers, yes - they get their part, before you get your part. Once the annuity is set up, any creditors can attach your bank account every month, as the annuity pays you. They cannot touch the "principal".
Why Is It When We Implemented Drunk Driving Laws, Drunk Driving Fatalities Dropped Consistently Over The Years?
Cons Say That Shouldn'T Happen.
I have never seen a conservative give a straight answer to this question, and the responses here are no exception.
They will dodge the question by saying that drunk driving still occurs, so the laws don't work. But that type of answer misses the obvious point - the FREQUENCY of drunk driving.
You are absolutely correct that drunk driving has decreased since more stringent laws were passed.
No law is 100% effective, and nobody ever claimed it should be. But laws undeniably have a deterrent effect
