Can You Beat A Lawyer?
If All The Law Books And Every Court Case Ever Was Digitized, With An Excellent Search Engine Attached.If They Banned Latin Words Such As Haebius Corpus , Do You Think You Can Beat A Lawyer In Court?
As a lawyer, not a moron, pro per (Dang Latin) Defendants can sometimes win. Latin, by the way is such a small part of the law. The most fun part of the law is when the other side is asking questions. You have to know evidence law so as the question is asked, you have to decide whether the question is proper, or relevant. You have to decide if there is an objection, and if there is, what it is, and after what it is, whether to make the objection. And that decision has to be made from the time the question is asked and before the witness answers. There is so much to the practice of law than just knowing some of the law.

My 15 Yr Old Daughter Wants To Run Away Because Her Mother Wont Let Me See Her. Can I Legally Go Get Her?
I Am In The Beginning Of A Custody Battle For My 15 Year Old Daughter In The State Of Maryland. My Ex ( We Were Never Married) Has Not Let Me See Or Talk To Her For The Past 4 Months. She Finally Called Me Last Night And Told Me She Is Running Away Because She Can'T Stand To Be At Her Mother'S House Any Longer Due To Neglect. I Can'T Afford A Lawyer And Have No Clue What My Rights Are. I Contacted Cps Today And They Said They Were Not Allowed To Give Me Any Advice But I Could File A Complaint. My Daughter Stated That If I Don'T Come And Get Her She Will Run Away And Nobody Will Know Where She Is. Can I Legally Go And Get Her? Please Help. Thank You!
If there is no custody agreement in place, and especially if you are not recognized as the father, you could be charged with kidnapping or custodial interference. If you are concerned about your child's welfare, you could file a complaint with CPS. If you have to borrow money, or get a second (or third) job, you should retain a reputable attorney specializing in family law. You may also be able to contact your local legal aid office, which may be able to provide low-cost legal representation.
Now That Tsarnaev Has Gotten The Death Penalty, News Is Saying His Attorney Will Be Appealing For Over A Decade. He Will Sit On Death Row?
For A Few Decades.
Who Pays His Attorney Fees? Tsarnaev Isn'T Paying A Cent. So Who Does? Is He A State Attorney? Does That Mean Taxpayers Pay His Fees? If So, That'S Not Fair.
Yes, the taxpayer ends up paying for his attorney. And for the cost of the court and judges hearing the appeals. The news is right - because almost endless appeals are allowed, the average prisoner sentenced to death is on death row for over ten years, and more die there than ever get executed. Fun fact I discovered when I was looking at this earlier - since the death penalty was reinstated for federal crimes in 1988, 74 have been sentenced to death but only 3 have been executed. The rest have either died or are still appealing, at YOUR expense.
This is a reason often given for opposing the death penalty, that because of the legal costs, it's actually cheaper for taxpayers just to sentence him to life without parole.
It makes me wonder if the US actually believes in the death penalty. Why doesn't it USE it more often, or doesn't it trust its own courts?
I'm British and what we did before abolishing the whole thing 50 years ago was allow only three appeals and six weeks at most to make them. If they failed, you hanged (the one and only method we used was long drop hanging) at most six weeks after the judge passed sentence. By the way, I see what your religion is... if a murderer didn't appeal and wasn't reprieved, the execution would be three weeks after sentence, traditionally to allow three clear Sundays for him to make peace with God. We are an officially Christian country (well, the England part is) so that was the way. It is still the law that every English prison must have a Church of England chaplain and if you happen to be Catholic or something else, there will be provision for you too. For Catholics, there will be a priest to say Mass every week.
If you can't get it right after a trial AND three appeals, you never will, and we never noticeably hanged more of the wrong people than the US currently executes. There wasn't even an argument about the method - the measured long drop is VERY quick and kills the prisoner of a broken neck. It was just the fact that just occasionally courts DO get it wrong that caused Parliament to abolish the death sentence for murder - is killing someone by mistake EVER right? What we now have is a mandatory life sentence, with the possibility of a whole life term (i.e. without parole) if the crime deserves it.
I suspect that if Tsarnaev had done what he did in England, a whole life term would have been the sentence. I say that because of the Lee Rigby case - he was a British soldier who was hacked to death in the street by two fanatical Muslims a couple of years ago, just because they wanted to "get their revenge" on the army for what it is doing against al-Qaeda etc. One got a whole life term, the other got life with a minimum of 45 years - which means he's going to be about 70 before he even gets considered for parole.
There are serial killers who committed suicide in prison rather than face the rest of their life there. They thought death was the easy way out. Isn't that another thought about the death penalty?
In The Middle Of Divorce, Who Are The Best Family Law Attorneys In Los Angeles?
My Current Attorney Is Utterly Incompetent And Causing Me More Pain And Money Then Helping Me In My Divorce. I Need A Really Good And Aggressive Attorney. Most Charge For Consultation And I Don't Have Thousands To Blow On Just Interviewing Attorneys. Who Are Some Of The Best Ones In The Los Angeles Area? Or, What Is The Best Way To Find One?
I am so sorry. I, myself, had a bad divorce a few years ago and went through a few attorneys. The old saying holds true, "If you think an expert is expensive, try hiring an amateur."
After months of frustrations, I asked court reporters and clerks at the courthouse on who they observed in the courtroom was good. In addition, I did research on who celebrities used. They'd only hiring the best right?
I would suggest hiring a certified family law attorney because I think they're more knowledgeable since they only practice in that area.
Here are some of the top firms, I feel, after my research a few years ago:
Adelman & Seide, LLP
Well-known certified specialists who have represented celebrities. I was told they are very sharp and aggressive.
Leeds Wender & Rosenfeld, LLP
Well known firm with celebrity clients. Not sure if they're certified though. Can't find website.
Nachsin & Weston, LLP
Publicized celebrity attorney who represented baseball player Barry Bonds. Didn't check and see if they're certified.
Trope and Trope
Another well-known firm who started the non-profit Harriett Buhai center and represented Britney Spears. I heard they are also sharp and certified.
I don't want to seem biased a recommend my attorney. I hope this helped and great luck on a resolution. I know what you're going through.
In Ga If No Custody Agreement Has Been Made Can I Move?
Im 20, My Daughters A Year And A Half Old. Weve Never Been Married, I Live Here In Georgia By Myself With No Family. He Did Appear For Child Support But I Havent Heard Anything About What Was Decided Also The Child Support Wont Be Effective Till October. So I Need To Know What I Need To Do In Order To Move Back To Illinois So Ill Be With My Family And Have The Help I Need.
I've been in and out of GA custody court for 5 years, so I have the rules down pretty well.
If he appeared for the child support hearing I am going to assume he already did the legitimization???
If he did then he has been legally recognized as the child's father....that means he has the legal right to ask the court for visitation and or some form of custody.
If he is asking to see the child you might not be able to move...the worst case scenario for you is that IF you did move he would have 6 months to file in the GA county you use to live in and he would be filing for custody. The hearing would be held and it is likely the court would not see moving closer to family so they can help with the child as a legitimate reason to move the child and block access to the father. In theory if you need help with the child then you should be asking the father. I have seen many cases where the mom was ordered to either move back to GA or they were ordered to give up custody of the child back tot he father.
If he isn't making any sort of effort to see the kid and share the responsibility then you would have a good case to move, BUT, it should be done through the courts. You would need to go and file for sole custody based on indifference with the child. You should consult a lawyer because it gets complicated on what to say and what not to say....for example, you want sole custody to move, but that would mean the court is severing the parent child potential relationship and they don't generally like to do that. The best way out of this would be, in my opinion, to seek sole custody based on his indifference to the child, and say in there that he can have supervised visitation at agreed upon times and locations....and if he doesn't fight any of that then you can move. Make sure there is nothing in your order about the kid remaining in the state, OR any travel restrictions with the kid. that is why it is best to have a lawyer do this.
If you don't think the dad will fight you, or if he ever even wants to see the kid then just move, he has no legal right to see the child and you wouldn't be violating anything. It is a gamble though because he could file within the 6 month time frame....but if you don't think he will actually go and file the paperwork then I say go for it....after 6 months you will be in the clear anyway and any future cases should take place in IL.
